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.

    "Good, but not great!"

    Let me start out with this: I liked this book a lot. The reason I gave it a 4 rating instead of a 5 is because of the way the narration was done. I know it was the same as all the previous books in the series, but it was seriously distracting the way some of the voices were voiced by different actors. I know what they were trying to achieve, but somehow it missed its mark. Another sticking point for me is that while some of the voices were voiced by different actors, it was not consistent all the way through the book. In some places, the main narrator would read the parts that SHOULD have been voiced by the actors. The effect of this is a jarring distraction to what should be a smooth sail through the story.

    I will say that this book had a great storyline and the way a new hero was introduced was very well done. I didn't know what was going on and was actually surprised by the hero and their abilities. I felt like I was learning what was going on right with the characters. This is a difficult thing to successfully pull off and I was impressed.

    I am not sure where this series is going, but I have liked it a lot and will continue to read them as they come out!

    Story
    "Corpse Girl for the win!"

    You really should read the first 2 books in this series before you pick up Ex-Communication. Many of the occurrences in this book are tied to the events and actions that took place in the first 2 books and having that context is necessary. Besides, if you like the first 2 books then you’ll be reading/listening to this one in no time at all. All of the Heroes will seem like old friends by the time you get here and you’ll be glad to spend more time with them.

    Similar to the start of Book 2, Ex-Communication reveals that the Heroes have been busy in between books. The wall around The Mount has been extended and the relationships between the Heroes have grown as well. Legion is getting smarter and his ability to control the zombie horde is advancing. In addition to adding a new Hero to the mix (Corpse Girl) Peter Clines provides more insight and background to events from the first 2 books. Amongst other things, we learn why Zzzap has been talking to himself and why Dr. Sorensen insisted his daughter wasn’t dead.

    It started with Super-Heroes and Zombies, then came the Super-Soldiers, and now Demons and Sorcery emerge to take center stage with a little nano-technology thrown in for good measure. At first I wasn’t thrilled that Clines went in this direction, but after a while I got over it and just went along for the ride. This is more comic book style storytelling delivered in the same “Then” and “Now” format we are used to. The cast of narrators is once again outstanding, so if you are a fan of the series then you will gobble this up quickly.

    "A story about Superheros and Zombies"

    I like Walking Dead, I thought World War Z was a fun zombie book (and the only zombie book i've bothered reading outside of this series). Most of the time I spend On Stephen King or maybe those Prey series.

    Yet Peter Clines hooked me with 14, so I gave Ex heroes a chance. . and loved it. Ex Communication is the third in the series. . and for a world overrun with the undead (who left is there to fight) this stories setup. . .actually began in the previous book. It all comes together, is well done. . .and gives us a deeper look at one super character we kind of thought left us too soon

    There were a few glitches when I started, like sometimes the girl was read by a girl and sometimes a boy. . but I think they fixed it. I ate through this book in record time. Its just cool, clean, fun.

    Now if only we could return to the world of 14. . .is there any stories there left to tell?

    Story
    "Very Good Book"
    Would you listen to Ex-Communication again? Why?

    It continues to up hold the characters and story line very well. The characters keep growing, along with twists & turns to the them. Keeps the storyline very interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The new characters that were introduced in this book and the use of older characters.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    They were all very very good. I would have preferred to have only 1 person as narrator.

    "I listened before they fixed the audio"

    Find this full review and all of my other reviews at audiobookreviewer dot com.

    It filled me with a a huge feeling of contentment and familiarity as soon as I started listening to Ex-Communication, and it was like I didn’t have to wait over a year to listen to this next installment. There is something about superheros dealing with zombies that is so interesting to me. But again Clines was able to take this story way past the typical zombie horde chasing the terrified humans. Ex-Communication picks up shortly after Ex-Patriots, if there was a time frame that past I must have missed it, still the crew is fending off the zombie super villian Legion but then there is something way worse than the zombie collective. Clines really focuses on the true diabolicalness of human nature. We tend to do whatever it takes, hurt anyone in the way of preserving yourselves in the face of complete annihilation. This audiobook is really about how peoples true nature can and will come out, to betray those they once loved, and about how opposite forces can join to fight of the bigger threat first. I have a good feeling that there will be another chapter to this awesome series, I can’t wait.

    Story
    "More mysteries for our zombie fighting heroes"

    Ex-Communication introduces new challenges for our heroes while also shoring up loose strings from the previous two books.

    This book is a bit more predictable than the previous two. The mystery of a sub-plot was much more engaging to me than the main plot. However, the action and adventures don't let up. The super hero team has met a challenge more cunning, more dangerous, and more frightening than the challenges of the previous books.

    I'm looking forward to release of the fourth book in the series.

    Story
    "Each book in the series is better than the last."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend it, there's such a wide array of heroes its hard to choose a favourite. Ex-Communication in particular did a wonderful job of bringing up events from the first and second book and making them new problems or ideas.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ex-Communication?

    I really enjoyed the heroes' humor, specifically Zzzap's Yugioh reference to Snyder's previous work in the anime show.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Snyder, Hvam and Boyett give the characters life and their delivery as the individual characters is great.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were many times I laughed and chuckled as the heroes gave snarky responses. I might not have cried, but I came close. Many times I was worried for the safety of the heroes as they were in danger.


    Any additional comments?

    The transition to a very new plot idea in this book compared to the previous two paid off well. The problems the heroes faced were very different, but still very well written and exciting and kept me on the edge of my seat til the very end. I cannot wait to read the next book!
