Publisher's Summary

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions must overcome their differences and recover from their own scars to protect the thousands of survivors sheltered in their film studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. The heroes lead teams out to scavenge supplies, keep the peace within the walls of their home, and try to be the symbols the survivors so desperately need. For while the ex-humans walk the streets night and day, they are not the only threat left in the world, and the people of the Mount are not the only survivors left in Los Angeles. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power. And they are not heroes.

    Story
    "Suffers from poor naration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Every female character sounds EXACTLY the same, so understanding who is speaking from the voice queues is nearly impossible. This strongly detracted from the otherwise good-enough story.


    Any additional comments?

    Do NOT listen during a meal. I was on business travel, often in restaurants while listening to this book. I am not put off by gore, but much of the dialog is sub-optimal for dinner time listening. Be prepared for gratuitous and detailed descriptions of killing zombies, and the sounds that would come with.

    "Zombies VS. Super Heroes"

    Then...Imagine what it would be like if Superman, Batman, Cat Woman, Dracula, and the Human Torch teamed up to fight against zombies and zombie Frankenstein and a Demon. Sweet action RIGHT!!! I had no idea that was this great story till I really got into it. Now...I can't put the book down and want the next one. Thank you very much Peter for such a wonderful change to the NORM. I am a big fan of zombie books and movies...but this was an original if I have ever seen one. Any idea where I can get a signed original...first edition???

    I enjoy spy, military, psychological, technical and fiction based in reality and science. I really value intimate, thorough writing.

    Story
    "SOOOOO Clutch. A true joy to experience."
    Would you listen to Ex-Heroes again? Why?

    Probably. Parts of it just felt so cool and exciting. It is written in such a way that even if you know the resolution its still a fun read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have to pick? The tension of the final conflict. It felt so clutch. I genuinely didnt know what was going to happen. It was calculated like a chess game yet brutal like a bar fight. Every bit of it felt like a slow painful crawl.


    What does Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    So much personality to so many characters. I really felt like i knew everyone. Just by their voices and annunciations.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The initial like about Exs. i cant remember but its something like "Ex Cops, Ex Mothers, ...Ex People".


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely perfect pacing. I felt like i could feel the whole situation. The race for answers through detective work and the tactical combat struggle. The excitement and the hopelessness.

    The way the origin stories were done should be celebrated. It was enough info to define people but it didnt drag or feel obligatory.

    Just cool enough to not feel cheesy.

    I also like how everything tied together and gets explained. It all felt so smooth and clever.

    There was just enough info to keep you grounded and engaged and the omission of some things actually made it better. If you were in the middle of the situation you couldn't know every little thing about everyone. I really felt like i was there.

    "smartest person in the world? .. nope."

    I don't understand why they never corralled the exes onto streets and used cars to block then in, creating safe paths from thier base to foraging areas, and pushing them out from the inside to create a larger safe zone. i feel like a lot of things weren't thought out. still a good story though.

    So bad ! I'm surprised this didn't make Cline an Ex-writer! But then I don't like the low budget, bad acting sci-fi movies which this reminds me of.

    Undead super heroes!!!! Warlock possessed demons. Gangs of L.A. What more do you want? A good twist on an old, over used theme.

    "Not a bad choice especially for the season"

    The story plays out like a graphic novel and that's not a problem at all. The characters are fun despite being stereotypical, and you do care for them when things go wrong. The only caution I would have is that this is certainly not for young ears even though it does have superheroes in it.

    "enjoyable read/listen to turn your brain off to."

    it is what it is. It's not a literary masterpiece, its a fun book with interesting characters about superheroes vs zomvies. if that sounds appealing then you will probably enjoy it.

    "Comic Book like Novel"

    This book is like a comic book. Which is fitting since it about superheroes and zombies. It's is about as deep as a well written comic book and the action is good. I like the cast of characters. The main bad guys are a little weak and underdeveloped. Overall I found it very entertaining. I will be movie on in the series.
