Publisher's Summary

This exciting audio drama is based on an immensely popular podcast that has received hundreds of positive reviews and has had over four million downloads - and counting.

For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.

The first season features 12 chapters packing performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well. Join our survivors as they band together, struggle to fortify a safe haven known as the Tower, and discover that zombies are far from the worst thing in a post apocalyptic Los Angeles, where the rules of human decency no longer apply.

Little food. Little water. Little hope. Who is lucky enough to say "We're Alive"?

What the Critics Say

We’re Alive is a modern rendition of an old-school medium. Maintaining a style that is both retro and contemporary, the radio drama will give horror fans the campy, kitschy style they like, but it also provides a variety of characters and development to keep general audiences engaged…Despite not being able to see the action, the excitement and intensity is still sustained through score and sound design. In some ways, the lack of visuals to accompany the audio creates more suspense. The narrator controls how much the audience knows, slowly teasing out information. Accompanying the drama are sparse moments of comedic relief…Expressing a keen awareness of the zombie subgenre, many of the jokes come from familiar scenarios and tropes of zombie stories.” (Examiner.com)

    "If you like zombie apocalypse stories"

    I'm an avid Zombie Apocalypse story fan and this multicast production caught me when it was still a weekly podcast. I couldn't get enough and each week the suspense of what would happen next would almost drive me crazy.

    Story
    "This is amazing"

    Let me preface this by saying this is a podcast and that you can find the entire thing for free online. If you like zombie fiction, this is the thing for you. It's more of a radio show, with different actors for each character, sound effects, music, etc. I thought I would find all of that annoying after being so used to one narrator audiobooks (where, let's face it, if there's music in an audiobook, it usually ruins the experience), but this was great. Like listening to your favorite show. You will become invested in, love, and hate different characters. There were moments where I actually screamed out loud. This is really well done. If you are like me and enjoy some of the more practical aspects of surviving during a zombie apocalypse, or if you are more interested in interpersonal relationships, there will be a lot for you to get into. There are something like 47 three part chapters available, so we're talking almost 50 hours of action. I feel like, i could start over and enjoy it just as much one more time. Highly recommended.

    "Awesome"

    This is one of the best series I have ever listened too. I was so excited to see part 4 out. Did not think twice to get part 4. I have become hooked on these type of books that use more than one person characters. Love it!!!!!

    "Exciting and Well Produced"

    The story is exciting. The cast is great, various voices and sounds made for radio show are beautifully recorded! Characters are well developed, story line is easy to follow, even the ending of each chapter is engrossing; I couldn't put the audiobook down too long before I find excuses to finish listening. Looking foreword to season 2!

    Spay, neuter, adopt, and train. Don't buy, surrender, or breed. Be a good person and carry a weapon just in case.

    "who needs movies"

    This form of audio book has many cast members playing out the story. A really good story. Not an A typical Zombie/Apocalyptic run either. Very exciting. A must for your library.
