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
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Wasn't nearly as good as "The Fold".."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ex-Heroes to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    One major twist/discovery two thirds of the way through the story.


    Any additional comments?

    ... pretty good for a superhero story!

    "Great fun! Super heroes vs Zombies."

    This book was a little too short but would make a great movie. There's lots of great relatable characters and Clines is a Master at making a book flow. I loved the male and female narrator style. Worth a listen for sure.

    "A campy fun story and a cool take on the zombie genre"

    Hey, I don't care for super Hero comic book type stuff, but I love me some zombie apocalypse - story not only deals with the origin of the outbreak, but finds a way to get you rooting for heros that are full of comic book win.

    Not sure if I'll continue the series, but all in all, a cool quick listen. The dual narration works after a few minutes and gives a nice feel to the book.

    "Captivating...great characters..awesome story!"

    Anything Peter Clines writes is guaranteed to be gold. I started out with 14 and The Fold and this book series is just as entertaining. He has a way of developing characters that makes you feel like the character could very well be someone you might know. Such distinct personalities. Great read!

    Story
    "Ok but lacking any research"

    As a physician that listens to audible for mind numbing the daily commute I find myself overlooking a lot of scientific gaps. This story is entertaining but the plot hinging on someone loosing enough blood from a broken finger to require a transfusion is simply a laughable lack of any research prior to writing the story.

    Story
    "Zombies not really my thing"

    Well enough written, good performance, fairly fast plotting but ...not so much. Glad it was deeply discounted. Like catching the movie on the flight that you wouldn't see in theaters and wouldn't waste the time at home.
