    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    As i had already invested time into the first 2 books of this series, it was time i NEEDED to spend to finish.I dont think i would have the same commitment if this was the first in the series.But, to anyone out there that has read the first 2 books, then this is a must read. Just for closure


    What was most disappointing about Z. A. Recht and Thom Brannan ’s story?

    Obviously a hard job for Thom to step up and finish writing this without Z.A. Recht. Overall, i think it was an ok effort, but could have been so much better.For me, then ending felt a little rushed. Especially compared to the rest of the book, and i needed to re-listen to a few passages to get a clear picture of what was happeningI dont know if it was the circumstances that this book was written, or the fact it came to an end, but this book really leaves you wondering what if...


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Oliver Wyman?

    No one.BUT.... It would have been nice if he had have some preparation and matched the accents and voices he used in the first two booksNot enough to be a terrible listen, but enough to be annoying


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, but only because of the series. This book alone would not do it for me


    Any additional comments?

    I would be lying if i said i wasnt disappointed in this book. the first two books had me hooked and i found myself looking for any excuse to listen to it. This one, no so much. Obviously, anyone that has read the first books will want to read this, but dont hold high expectations.Still, im glad i completed this story and it is a real shame about the original author. Such a talent lost
