Publisher's Summary

"All of us try to cheat death. I was just better prepared to do it than most folks."In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they've created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge.As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans... there's more than one way to come back from the dead.

    "One complaint. Too short!"

    First of all,thank you for bringing Jay Snyder back. Great narrator.

    This was a great book full of a couple twists that will really entertain the EX books fans. One i totally knew was going to happen! Another twist i never saw coming.
    All im going to say is that Peter Clines and BV Larson need to write a series together after reading this.

    Buy this audio book and sit back for some great story telling. Another home run Mr. Clines.

    "Really good 3rd installment"
    What made the experience of listening to Ex-Communication the most enjoyable?

    Honestly this book falls directly in line with its 2 predecessors, great story and really well written.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't listen to many of the other reviews, the change in voices wasn't all that terrible. This is not the first book where I have noticed the voices change, either through production errors or other ideas for making the book in that way. It really isn't all that horrid, and it only happens here and there.

    "Loved the new "Dead Girl" character."
    Where does Ex-Communication rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the better science fiction series.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved having multiple readers. Personalities are much more evident.

    "Another great story..."

    Ever since I stumbled upon Ex-Heros I have loved the world that Peter Clines created. He takes al of the troops of Superheros, turns them on their heads, and then throws zombies in for good measure. The result? Awesomeness!
    Ex-Communication continued the story left off in Ex-Patoriate by continuing the struggle with Legion and with the super soldiers joining the mount, and by introducing a new threat based on an older character. The story is fast and the characters convincing, I just wish there was more.
    I hope that Clines explores more of the outside world in later books, since it seems that there are many other possible stories outside of the mount.

    "Another Great Listen"

    I went back and read my other reviews in this series thus far, just to see if my perceptions of Clines' work were consistent. They are. In fact, I actually think this is the best one of the first three. I can't comment on the next two since I haven't gotten there yet, but I was impressed with the philosophical growth in this installment.

    Where the first two books were very much focused on the gee whiz factor of combining superheroes and zombies, this installment delves quite a bit deeper. We’re not quite into classical existential philosophy or anything, but for a zombie series that is funny at least 40% of the time, I’m impressed. Instead of straight battles and petty internal conflicts, the characters are starting to struggle with their own mortality and the broader theological implications of the plague.

    Those of you who follow me know that I don’t give spoilers, so my hands are tied a bit here on how to continue the review in this vein. However, let’s just say that the protagonists are confronted, quite directly, with a personification of this struggle. And it’s brilliant.

    I am a full bore Clines fan boy, so that’s my disclaimer on all of this. I really think his work is fantastic. But, without hesitation, and fully attempting to be objective, I give this high marks if you’re into this type of story.

    Well worth a credit and your time.

    Story
    "How Do You Top 'Ex-Patriots?' You Write This Book!"

    If you're a fan of this series, you may already own this audiobook. If not, or if you're still deciding wether or not to slap those Audible credits on the counter, and get into this series, this third review is for you.

    If you've read my previous reviews, you already KNOW my thoughts on this writer and his efforts. This review is going to basically say the same thing, with a few changes.

    First, the characters, both existing and new have greater depth. The story now deals with faith and magic in a more intricate method, and are both stronger players in the tone and direction of the story. The storyline is richer, and takes even better advantage of the world Clines has already established. It's fantastic, and the author steps up his game in this third effort. The zombies are badder, the heroes are better, the villain steps up the game, and the conflicts make for great reads, or in this case, listens.

    I'm not going to give away any plot points here, as you know. I HATE when a reviewer gives spoilers about the work they review. It's as if the reviewer dips into all that hard work, and steals a small (or sometimes large) part of the spotlight so richly deserved by the author. So, no spoilers.

    But I WILL finish by telling you the following:

    It's one thing for author to write one good work - It's an ENTIRELY different thing to write THREE subsequent works in a series surrounding a constant theme, and doing so beautifully time after time.

    Clines has done this, over and over in this series. If you love the zombie, superhero or modern magic genres, you're going to be satisfied, from the first in the series, to this third in the series.

    Personally, I'm thinking this is the best of the three. How often does THAT happen?

    Go ahead. Say it. You know the answer. Not very often, if ever.

    So, Clines topped the other two books by writing THIS book.

    Thanks, Peter. I can't wait to see where you take the series from here.

    "Finally Its HERE!!!!!!!"

    its finally here, i have been waiting for this book for over a year, and was afraid to never get it... but nope, finally its here, this master piece of a zombie series. Super heroes and zombies leads to a great book and a greater series.

    Ex-communication had a fast start and a challenging one too, legion is there, and he is out for blood, new relations are made here and new characters come to life here as well.

    Let me point this out, this the the 2nd release of this book, the first one was full of recording errors (a character would be narrated by different narrators) . but audible fixed this in less than a week, and i am amazed with you guys for that.. and then this is my 2nd review for the book.

    Ex-communication was a bridge between Ex-Patriots and the next Ex book. as its action content was a bit less than the 2nd book but still, it was amazingly written, crafted, and produced. such a fantastic book.

    To Peter Clines: please don't be late for the next book, waiting for it from now.

    "Another great book"

    I love this series. I can't stop listening to it, and I'm going to be very depressed when it's over.

    This book added a new hero, and at first her story was really trying for me, but it ended up working out once I got past the initial introduction.

    I thought the narration was great, and I really enjoyed all of the voices and narrators, they did a spectacular job. I didn't even notice that one of the narrators from the last book wasn't a part of this book.

    Listen to the first two books in the series first, but then listen to this one, worth the credit.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "Back to good, which is good too..."

    Book one was good, book two was excellent, and this book is back to good. Overall the series was a great read, but individually, this might have been the weakest book of the three.

    Why? Because nothing really happened. The book was spent exploring the characters' relationships with each other, more than interacting with the outside world. Also... the bad guys seemed like they were tacked on. We start the book with Legion - ohh... very bad - but then we get the demon appearance and Legion just sorta fades to the background. The reason for Legion's end-story acquiesance doesn't ring true, especially considering how focused on rage he was in the first of the book. And I don't really believe the heroes' naivete that led to the freeing of the demon in the first place.

    The existing main characters were still there, and a couple were added, but... some of the previously added heroes (Driver) were just cameos here. There was a little bit of mystery around Corpse girl, but it didn't go anywhere in this story - I am hoping it will be further developed in the next book.

    But, even so, it was a great series and now that I see there is another book in the series, I will go get it!

    Narration is excellent, there is no gore or significant violence, and any swearing was not excessive.
