Publisher's Summary

Tales of the Forgotten (Volume II in the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Series)

The world is at war with the Primal Virus. Military forces across the globe have been recalled to defend the homelands as the virus spreads and decimates populations.

Out on patrol and assigned to a remote base in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson's unit was abandoned and left behind, alone and without contact.

They survived and have built a refuge, but now they are forgotten. No contact with their families or commands.

Brad makes a tough decision to leave the safety of his compound to try and make contact with the States, desperate to find rescue for his men.

What he finds is worse than he could have ever predicted.

    "highly recommend this book Military zombie"

    Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson and a small portion of his unit (Sean and Brooks) have survived the initial few days of the Primal Virus. Determined to save his men and find word about home, Brad leaves the compound his men and a few other local survivors have fortified. No word from anyone, satellite phones dead and no way to arrange a rescue mission for them, they leave the compound in search of answers and possible rescue.

    Joining with Hassan, a guide and a Taliban fighter, they travel the wasteland. Finding a facility with batteries and other military items, the team makes satellite phone contact with other military officials. These officials provide information for the Brad and his team to maneuver safely through the terrain. In exchange for their rescue, they need to perform a snatch and grab.

    This book was longer and even richer in detailed descriptions. The first book did what it needed to set the stage for this book. The feeling of abandonment, joy, fear and suspicion was communicated so clearly that one had no choice but to connect with the characters.

    The writing style is laid back, realistic, and flows seamlessly. There were no distracting storylines; the author did an excellent job of staying on target. Action packed; there is no rest for Brad, Sean or Brooks as they manage to land in one tight spot after another.

    Eric Vincent again did an excellent job narrating. His voice is expressive.

    Audio production was good except the music at times was a bit loud and long at the beginning of some chapters but was a nice touch for building suspense.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys military action with zombie action.

    Story
    "Waste of money"

    This story had great potential but it was blown by the good Ole boy inflection of the narrator and or the author.
    The recording was jumpy and it seemed the narration forced the characters to more light hearted then the story itself.

    "Part 2 of good series"

    Thanks to Book Gorilla for making this Whispersync available for less. This episode has our military outrunning the viral zombie-like predators in a world only minimally familiar. A really good tale well worth accumulating.
    That being said, the narration is very good if played at 1.5 speed.

    I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.

    "Slow, predictable and on its way back to Audible."

    I kept the first selection, all 2 hours of it, and really wanted to like this, but couldn't. Part two was obviously written for length not story flow and did not come close to book #1.

    "love the story not the storytelling"

    Lundy has the speed and content spot on. the narrative weakens impact severely. Mr. Vincent sounds like he would be far better suited to histories and scientific writing.

    Story
    "An astonishing gem-narration is perfect"
    If you could sum up Tales of the Forgotten in three words, what would they be?

    Take a knee


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tales of the Forgotten?

    Creeping isolation permeates - hard to choose.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the road scenes


    If you could rename Tales of the Forgotten, what would you call it?

    No need to rename, they were forgotten


    Any additional comments?

    This one blows the mold. No long political dissertations, no blowhard religious cults. It is pure action and suspense, from start to finish. But with believable, not over the top characters. They are US soldiers, stationed in Afghanistan, so they are equipped and know their weapons but there is no certainty to the outcome at any point. They are not really ever safe. Lots of hide and seek, in urban and rural areas. The primals, aka zombies, are fierce and at times, terrifying, and you will not get a nice explanation gift wrapped as to how they come to be. I LOVED it and cannot wait for another one in this series. Narration is exceptional, it is one of the best i have purchased all around.

    Story
    "A very good novel"
    Where does Tales of the Forgotten rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is certainly up there at the top. I won this audiobook in a competition so downloaded and listened to it immediately. I didn't know what it was about and I had never heard of the author. I was very happy from beginning to end. The story was well written and the narrator did a sound job.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was shocked to hear at the close of the recording that this was in fact the second book in the series. It surprised me because it works so well as a standalone novel.


    What about Eric Vincent’s performance did you like?

    I have to admit that it took me about fifteen minutes to get used to his voice but now, I couldn't imagine anyone would narrate it better.
