What began in the wasteland of Dead Mech, and continued alongside Europe and Asia in The Americans, now has its epic conclusion in Metal and Ash.
Commander James Capreze and his team of mech pilots must no longer battle just zombies, cannibals, religious cults, and the ever-dreaded dead mechs. Now, they will be put to the test by the forces of the Three, as the evil alliance bent on dominating every inch of the world attacks from two fronts, forcing Capreze to split his forces and make alliances with those he had been sworn to defeat. The wasteland becomes the setting for an epic fight for basic human survival like it hasn't seen in hundreds of years.
Will 50-foot battle mechs be enough against hundreds of thousands of techno-zombies ready to wipe everything living off the scorched map that is the wasteland? Join Capreze, his mech pilots, the refugee Americans, end every denizen of the wasteland as they make one final stand to keep the Three from bringing humanity's downfall. Alliances are formed and broken, mech pilots are made and murdered, secrets are revealed and agendas destroyed, and thousands of bodies fall and rise again in the Apex trilogy finale: Metal and Ash.

Non Stop Thrills
This story took the two very different books that came before it and brought them together in extremely satisfying ways.
Without spoiling anything... there was a moment of glorious redemption that was deeply satisfying.
Again a difficult answer to make without spoilers. As invested as I was in all the characters I had learned to love, hate, or hate/love in the first two books, there were resolutions to their stories that were both uplifting and tragic.
A wonderful end to a trilogy I enjoyed very much both in reading them and then in listening to the audio books.
Probably because I didn't keep up with all of the side stories. Towards the end is was good but it was not easy to follow throughout. I would recommend that if you decide to read this book we read the first two very shortly after that I read this so you understand what each character is supposed to be done in this book.
I must say the pace of the book is great and the suspense was fantastic.
That Mr Stone, he is one tough guy. I love the way he just does his thing no matter anyone else's needs.
I have listened to the other Apex series books and this one is just as fantastic! She is really talented and brings this book to life.
Chrome and Guts, since it is the two items I saw most vividly in my mind's eye.
Jake Bible is really fun to listen to and the pace of this book really kept me on the edge. The story is also well rounded and does not leave a lot of unanswered questions at the end, which I appreciate. And the characters are just so diverse and well written for the book. I enjoy fast paced action with a funny undertone and an element of weirdness and this book delivers. Thanks Jake.
"Amazing ending to a very good trilogy!!!!"
Amazing ending to a very good trilogy.
I have been following Mr Bible since he originally released Dead Mech as a free podcast and was excited that he finally released the third book as an audiobook.
HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT!!!!!
He brings everything together well and isn't afraid to kill important characters for the sake of telling an awesome story.
I'm hoping and praying that at some point Mr Bible gets around to doing a number 4, but if he doesn't then this trilogy will stand the test of time well.
