Chaos overtakes the fort when one of Howie’s group turns and starts killing survivors. Howie and his team are blamed and shunned but carry on their search for fuel to run generators in order to carry out research on the dog.
When Marcy realises the infection can cure diseases, and realising she can be strong and good, she decides to head to the fort to hand herself in to be examined, too. Howie is only partially convinced of her good intent, and, despite their hatred of one another, there is an undeniably strong connection between them.
Meanwhile, inmates inside a prison start killing each other, and Fletcher, an ex-power-lifter, is turned, becoming the most evil undead yet known.

Attorney - love to listen to audio books
There are some really bad people in this Part 7. Randall is bad to the core of his evil being!! Haywood also reveals, again, that human nature can upset the applecart. Debbie (the police Sergeant) behaves in a mean spirited, selfish, spiteful and ungrateful manner that has far reaching consequences. There are other characters who rise to the occasion and show that best that people can be. I continue to be impressed with Haywood's ability to create multi-layered characters - people you can love one minute and dislike the next. And Dan Morgan continues to bring them alive with his reading. Very talented reader!!
I'm not a zombie fan. Haven't watched the walking dead. Not sure how I ended up with this series, but I'm hooked. I love the characters and the evolution of the story keeps it interesting. I used to love Dave, but know I love Reginald. Dan took a bit to get used to his narrative and in book 1 I initially thought it was going to be a bad read. But as I got used to his style I realized he was actually good. Part 1 he seemed breathy and paused in odd places. But he seems to have overcome that. Now I love his character voices. I'll hear "Yes, Mr. Howie in my head forever.
The only thing about the plot that keeps "bugging" me is why with all these decaying bodies insects such as Mosquitos haven't become an issue for spreading the virus? Also, the rat think kind of came and went. No long term affects there!
Some times the foul language gets to me but I realize it's the character and have been able to tolerate it.
I'm just waiting for day 18. I've gone through 3 volumes in a week. Definitely addicting.
I just do not like the idea of zombies looking to be good. Dave is the man and Howie is still Howie. the banter between Blowers Nick and Cookie is very entertaining.
The Randall and Reggie characters are ridiculous. I'm not buying the story line and arc of the Zombies. Zombies needing hydration, getting tired, scared, all this evolution in 12 days. all this in-fighting and everyone at the fort gets this stupid and letting their guard down in just 12 days... not buying it. the Zombie virus mutating and maturing the human bodies and functions in 12 days .. don't buy it. are they living or dead? Zombie super serum like Thor, I can go on and on. how can you heal a disease if you're dead??? seem like the authored got bored with this one and as good as the last chapter was this one was awful and not realistic. I still love the interaction of Howie, Dave, Clarence and the lads and now the dog and that's what's gotten me through, and the Larnie and Howie story was an awesome part of the story. and the Timeline is so off.
Put actual care and passion into this chapter. do more study in human interactions and feelings. Make the story more realistic. Take time off until he was really ready to start the next chapter. and the Author really wanted to make a new type of creature he should have started a completely different story with new characters and not called them Zombies.
Dan Morgan brings life to the characters. the only character I hated was Randall but it wasn't Dan's fault it was a poorly written character. Dan is an excellent story teller.
It seem like the Author let his inexperienced little brother write most of the book and took over at the end. He still has magic with Howie, Dave, Clarence and the team, & Larnie.. I still want to see how the story plays out,
I want to finish the series out, pissed off over this chapter, and the turn off the story but hoping the Author can regain the passion for the story and bring it back to where it was.
I live in CA where the traffic is a nightmare. It could take 90 mins to get to my location when it should have only taken 25 mins. Audible!
this was one of my favorite undead books, however the ending was Soooo disappointing. I am not going to give anything away, but I just don't understand why we were left with a cliffhanger? I wanted closure. I listened to seven books and spent around a hundred dollars for this series so I was disappointed that the storyline did not give mm e closure but instead left me with questions and feeling like I missed something. ughh, I hate that!!! I almost gave the book 3 stars but besides the ending it was a great book.
Yes, but I would recommend that they start from book 1.
Hmmmm, maybe the end scene. When they are eating at the fort.
This series was so addicting. I was so disappointed today when I got on Audible to look for the next book. I then went to the authors webpage, and found out that the next book has not come out yet. Man was I disappointed!!!
"You will become hooked on this series!"
Yes it is brilliant, it's so well written and narrated.
Meredith, she is a bad ass zombie killing dog!
He is so clear and brings the emotion to the words
I'm so far into this series I feel for all the charicrptesr happiness, sadness, anger, fear and even lust (for a zombie!!!!)
Good news is that on R R Haywards website there are books upto day 18 so if like me you are just about to finish day 12 The story does not end there.
Not so good news is that audible doesn't seem to have any audio books past day 12.! So come on audible or who ever get Dan Morgan on the phone and tell him to get his bum in the recording studio! I need to know what happens next! Please don't let me down audible!
"Brilliant series all books are great!"
I've listened to them all, not read any.
The way the main group communicate to one another the camaraderie is cleverly written and narrated. Being in Southen England I can relate to it as I live in London. Also as its done day by day, it can keep developing.
So many hard to pick, I like the big confrontational fighting parts and then there relaxing banter after. It try's to show how they can come to terms with what is happening around them.
Laugh, a lot!
Just want the books to keep coming!
"I NEED PART 8."
I'm starting it again tonight.
why?....why, you ask?
because it's awesome.
cookie and blowers.
not a fan of 'bantz' but they are hilarious.
I don't want to ruin the book for future readers.
all of them?!
I think Howie is the angel of death. in a good way!
"They just keep getting better and better"
The great writing style and the narration.
Dave. Just because.
Can't pick just one.
Is this the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning.
come on Amazon, start audiblising the rest of the series.
"The Undead part 7"
slightly long winded to get into the story and at times you knew what would happen however the ending with gripping and fully enjoyable I would definitely listen to it again I would recommend you read the whole series from start till now and then continue
"best series ever!"
absolutely love the undead series! my only problem is that because im so addictedi never get anything else done! The narator is one of the best ive heard (and i have listened to a lot of audio books)
"Unturnoffable (if that was a real word)"
As always Cookie, "can i catch zombie" is just a tonic, you cant help but smile when hes around, and the bit with Meredith in the back of the Saxon before the big battle gives me chills. As in all his books he showcases the best of humanity and the worst, seriously the people at the petrol plant and the prisoners, what the actual F, but probably very realistic. The last battle in this book makes the listener run through the gauntlet of human emotions, and for me whenever i re listen or re read it i know it makes me cry. I hate the outcome of it but it does add to the story.
To see how the characters grow and find their feet. The author is in my opinion one of the best at getting right to the heart of a character, he has a fantastic grasp of human behaviour, but this is what makes his goodies feel like friends and his baddies vile, and his love of Dogs shine through in the beautiful way Meredith is written.
I just think he gets better with each audio book. His range of voices have been fantastic. I love his Clarence.
Im not clever or funny enough to even attempt one :) ill leave the funnies to Mr Haywood.
"fantastic, but.... "
Beware Dan Morgan will be replaced in season 11 ruined whole series for me.
Haywood and Morgan was a match made in heaven.
