    It all ends here. The characters of the Deadlocked series have been through nearly unbearable challenges, but they're about to face the hardest yet. Kim has been taken by the cruelest, most vile person in the series, and it's up to Billy and Levon to save her. All the while, Laura fights for her life in the grip of the military as they perform tests on her daughter, Annie, that are risking the little girl's life. The conspiracy behind the rise of the zombie plague will be revealed as Reagan uncovers the horrible secret that led to the murder of six and a half billion people.

    Story

    As the blurb points out, we will finally figure out whats going on and why everyone call themselves the "good guys". Great finish to this story line, as the next book takes off decades later which this book will set up, with the introduction of a new mysterious character.

    The narrator, on the other hand, was lousy. He didn't even try to do different voices. He would be very monotone except he has an annoying habit where at the end of each sentence the first part of the last word goes up a notch and trails out. You can hear it in the blurb, like "eagle" in "desert eagle". I'd give him one star but I have in fact heard worse, like the narration he has done in other books which out of curiosity I had to try the samples of. The story is still listenable though.

    Story

    Actually a couple of major things happened, but they seemed a bit shrugged off. Was expecting a big climax somewhere, but the story kinda meandered along, putting pieces in place for big things for the next book.

    For example, there's a group of bad people somewhere, but they are never dealt with. Didn't Adrian learn anything from the last book with the preacher? Adrian just keeps scavenging and building and scavenging...hum dee dum dum...

    The super natural element is in plain view now. What I don't like about this stuff, is that they don't make sense and there shouldn't be anything you can do about it if a super being has plans for you. Why doesn't the devil just get all the zombies on the planet to attack or why not just make a tree fall on him? Oh, too simple, so the plot has to make all these nonsensical "rules" that bind all powerful gods and limit their power. Like if people sleep in Adrian's presence, the devil can't visit (Gilbert from the last book). What happens if Adrian's out and they take a nap during the day and the devil has all their wives soul? It gets complicated trying to fix all these plot holes dealing with the "all powerful".

    And suddenly the poor recording issues are gone when the author reads himself. The author is actually quite good at narrating and got better the more he read. It was only in the beginning prologue that he breathed into the microphone. The female voices weren't the greatest, but they were good enough.

    The most important aspect of this series is the character depth and relations between the main characters.

    I prefer my zombies stories to be grittier and darker and I'm not a keen fan of supernatural stuff, like talking babies. But the storyline held up for the most part. Good book in the end!

    Ev - o - lu - tion - 1) A change in the gene pool of a population from generation to generation by such processes as mutation, natural selection, and genetic drift; 2) A motion incomplete in itself, but combining with coordinated motions to produce a single action, as in a machine. Hemp Chatsworth has already figured out how 90% of the Earth's population became what they are. Now he must find out why some of them are evolving into something else. Something more dangerous.

    Story

    Coming from listening to other stories, the quality of the recording is jarring. But you get used to it, so maybe if you don't listen to other books, you think everything's normal. The narrator himself is pretty good I think, nice trick when everyone says "when".

    As usual there is alot of background into what the zombies are and how they behave and evolve, no identifiable plot holes regarding the science behind the zombies.
    The "ratz" play hardly a noticeable role in this story, its all about the evolving smart zombies. And its not even over, wonder where the next book will take us.

    Master Sergeant Reed Beckham has led his Delta Force Team, codenamed Ghost, through every kind of hell imaginable and never lost a man. When a top-secret Medical Corps research facility goes dark, Team Ghost is called in to face their deadliest enemy yet - a variant strain of Ebola that turns men into monsters.

    Story

    Story is all military style and the first part reminded me of colonial marines in claustrophobic space ship being hunted. Zombies are actually infected, so no need for headshots. No trying to gather supplies or driving from place to place surviving. They fly helicopters land, shoot, and fly back. Felt a bit contrived about how they kept moaning about losing their fellow comrades in arms, just kept going on and on about it. It was ok.

    Think the author must have read my review about plot holes because he was very clear about them this time, which was pretty good because I had forgotten about things between the books.
    Storyline in this book isn't very complicated with few surprises but enough to be engaging. Pity the stories are so short though.

    After nearly four years, the zombie epidemic has almost burnt itself out. Gus' new life on a communal farm is peaceful. The daily routine of policing the fields is rarely disrupted by straying undead. His drinking binges are over. Long days have thrown time over the memories of Annapolis. But this will all change.

    Story

    I don't recall the last time I gave 5 stars for everything and if I could give more for this book, I would. 16 hours of incredible, can't-put-down, gripping and brutal story telling.

    There was nothing predictable in this book. Many times I thought of a plot event that would be a very satisfying sense of justice and revenge, but nope, not too many things work out for Gus. You thought he took a beating in the other stories? This book is just gruesome.

    I was a bit worried in the beginning because the zombies and rats were dying out and being hunted in a zombie filled house wasn't really what I was interested in reading about. But that was just the warm up.

    This book is more about human raiders than zombies, which I usually don't like, but the story is just incredible, as is the narration, absolutely perfect.

    2019. Six years after the Jakarta Pandemic “decimated” the world's population; life is back to normal for the Fletchers and most Americans. The United States stands at the brink of a complete domestic and international resurgence, with stories of confidence and prosperity dominating the headlines. Appearances can be deceiving. An undercurrent of paranoia and fear still runs strong below the surface; the collective angst spawned by 28 million American deaths forever stamped into population's psyche.

    Story

    I think the narrator must have confused the first few chapters of the book with his DIY instruction manual for a technical product.

    In the first few chapters every other word seemed to actually be a number, followed by a long series of words, and then a unhelpful abbreviation for those words, just to be less clear.

    Once you get past that, the story starts to flow, but you will have wished you listened to the book "The Jakarta Pandemic" first, because, while its not an official a part of this series, is referenced everywhere.

    And then, after that, in order to start enjoying the book, you have to accept the basic premise that society will just go nuts within one day of having no electricity and usable cars.

    Now we can finally pay attention to super ex-soldier dad Alex who is the greatest prepper alive (its his business). He plans meticulously and knows everything about surviving the end of the world. Yet the first thing he does is send his wife and kids off in one direction on bicycles while he goes in another to find one of his sons.

    The story isn't emotionally complex, there aren't any internal divisions and no moral angst over killing people who seem a bit suspicious. Just follow him and his entire family who think the same way while they complete meticulous plans for everything.

    Despite all the problems with the story, its still an enjoyable read and the narrator was really good. I'm on the second book now because the first just ended. Yeah, just like that, wth; end, full stop.

    Found the story easy to digest. We meet up with another group of survivors and whats cool about that is that we hear about their story from the start of the apocalypse, so its like a whole new book and story. The new group and our old friends do meet up and start doing what they have to do.

    A lot of gore, killing and dying. We get to know the people who die just enough to pity them. The bad guys are portrayed in a shade of grey, manage to get depth in almost all the characters.

    The narrator is just so comfortable to listen to, not over acting, just enough to sound interesting.

    Good story, ending felt like an ending, but maybe more will be coming anyways? Hope so.

Things heat up fast when Sonya, a mysterious stranger sent by a secretive benefactor, frees him from enemy captors. Once again, Xander and Felicity find themselves fleeing for their lives from a never-ending series of new threats as well as old ones.

    I had to start rolling my eyes again as Xander was acting all childish like in the last book, but he actually goes through character development and starts maturing. Much of this book has a teen tint over it, you have to put it in the perspective of younger readers to accept many of the pretenses it has. I mean, Xander is the military commander of a base? What is he, 16 or something? Yeah, you have to swallow some unrealistic scenarios.

    So yeah, good book once you realize the target audience of the story.

    They know the end is coming, and they know who is behind it. They think they have a plan. A way to stop the men and women who are trying to destroy every single human being on the planet. Only those who are Special will be spared, and only they will be left to fight for the fate of their kind. Except... we already know that even the best-laid plans usually unravel in spectacular ways.

    Story

    I don't know what he is doing with his voice but I think it's some kind of acting. He thinks he is on a drama stage. I think a specific characters voice must have stuck so he sounds like some snobby fake British somewhat gay person. And since he is straining to act each word to its fullest, he becomes out of breath and gulps in air. Worse when the story actually calls for some excitement.

    I so miss Elizabeth Rodgers.

    I wanted to return the book after two minutes but since I'm a fan of this series, punished myself and tried to like it. But I just can't stand his narration.
    I couldn't get through the story but something about people with psychic powers. I skipped through chapters and there are zombies but few and far between. This book is not at all like the original books in the series. Awfully disappointed. Or perhaps the narrator would say, AABSolutely AATrocioussss and not my cup of tea.
