Publisher's Summary

In an apocalypse, there is definitely a beginning where mistakes are made and the seeds of evil are allowed to sprout and take shape. However, an end is not so certain. Once an apocalypse occurs, not even death is certain. Sometimes, death is only the beginning.

At first light that morning, Dr. Lee steps into the Walton facility on the first day of human trials and can barely contain her excitement. The labs are brand spanking new and everything is sharp and clean. They've been built to her specifications and are a scientist's dream. It's where cancer is going to be cured once and for all.

By midnight, it's a place of fire, of blood, and of death - a death that, like the apocalypse, is seemingly never ending.

    "Finally. What a great story."

    This is great. The last 3 books I've purchased were so poorly written that I didn't finish them... But this one is outstanding with excellent narration. Very well thought out story. The zombies are cool... Actually gives perspectives from the zombies POV too! Honestly, this book is refreshing... Not just another predictable cookie cutter story with a main character that is annoying. Anyways, I listened the sample and it intrigued me, so I purchased the book. Very glad I did. It's one of those that has me wanting to listen even after my long drives are over.

    "Very good story."

    I wasn't sure what to expect from reading the publishers summary, and then reading listener's reviews. I don't think many reviews or the summary did a very good job of describing this story. I will say this to try and help whom ever is reading my review. This isn't the typical zombie book, which is a good thing in my opinion. This story is about the origin of an outbreak. Some people aren't fully turned into zombies and you get some of their point of view. The rest is about how the people at ground zero react to what is happening and about how the disease spreads. It's worth the credit.

    "Good listen"

    A break from the usual zombie books. Here the author actually draws out the path of infection... it's not book in which the characters wake up to a world filled with zombies . Refreshing

    "breathe taking new view on zombies"

    What amazed me most is that this book is all just the first capsulating the first day. And it's view point and mind set of pre zombie to full infected was a revolutionary aspect.

    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.

    Story
    "Great start to what can be an outstanding series."

    I like stories that jump right into action, this story was a little different. each character is nicely developed as is the creative cause of the zombie outbreak. The setting is consistent throughout the story (a situation I do not usually like) but it works in this story. looking forward to the next edition.

    "Not your ordinary Zombie story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is something new and fresh. The story has to do with how the zombie apocalypse begins.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how the story is based on the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse. It doesn't start with someone waking up, and the streets are covered with zombies. This has to do with how the infection started, and how fast it spread.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like how you don't realize how fast the infection can spread. It takes just one person leaving the quarantined area, and hundreds were infected without even knowing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first time listening to a Peter Meredith book. You have a new fan here. I hope there are more books to follow this story. I will be watching for future releases.

    Story
    "Another solid Peter Meredith story."

    I am a big fan of Peter Meredith's writing. This book was a solid story for fans of the genre. I am a molecular biologist, so I really enjoyed the science and medical elements of the story. While not perfect from a cellular metabolism standpoint, it was well within the realm of acceptable for fiction! The narration was good, I did think the Arkansas accents were a bit over the top however. The story was a little slow getting going for the sake of character introduction, but they characters were great. I LOVE when a author manages to write a female scientist who can be professional and analytical without being horrible unlikable. I think this book is screaming for a sequel and I can't wait to listen.

    Story
    "Zombies are real. What would you do?"

    This is a story about the zombie apocalypse. It tells of how it was started and follows the lives of the first patients to be infected and how widespread it became. The cdc seems not to be able to control it. I love the length the author goes to to develop his characters and their back stories. There are definitely ones that I love, hate, and hate to love. The character Von Brawn is such a jerk but I found myself rooting for him because I felt a sense of sadness that he became a zombie. It wasn't his fault. The storyline is easy to follow. It really transitions smoothly even with how the author goes from one place to the next following the characters he is talking about at the time. I did find that there was also a small sense of a love story brewing for Dr Twee. It felt good that even in the face of disaster the human heart could find love.

    Now the narrator I would have to give 3 stars. I don't feel he added as much to the telling of the story as he could have. Don't get me wrong he did good but I don't feel it was an Oscar worthy performance.
    Overall I love what Peter Meredith has accomplished here. It's a very solid piece to add to my zompoc collection.

    Story
    "Pretty Good Zombie Novel"
    Where does The Apocalypse Crusade: War of the Undead Day One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Story wise it is pretty good compared to other audiobooks I've listened to, and the narration was well done as well.


    What other book might you compare The Apocalypse Crusade: War of the Undead Day One to and why?

    I'd say you could compare it to this writer's other novels, however, for some reason this appears to be a stand alone story as the other zombie novels by him don't appear to follow the same story line.

    Story
    "Now I know where the zombies came from"

    A good book, a good story and very well read. Gory details galore, but it's needed with this story, and it's great to finally have a clear, concise answer to how something like "The Walking Dead" could occur.
