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
    "Easily one of the best and most imaginative series"
    Where does Ex-Heroes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The series at a whole is at the top of my all time favorites, right up there with Kevin Hearne and BV Larson.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series is just plain fun and I couldn't stop listening.

    "Suprisingly good zombie based story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Ex-Heroes the most enjoyable?

    Great flow of the story, great characters


    What other book might you compare Ex-Heroes to and why?

    I'm just listening to Hyperion, where each character tells their jewel of a story in the overall story, and it reminds me a little of that.


    What about Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s performance did you like?

    I liked having a male and female voice, but I liked the man better


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end, but I won't spoil it.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like zombie books, wouldn't have picked this one if I had realized it, but ended up loving it.

    Overall: C
    I grabbed this on sale and thought I would give it a try. I was a little disappointed. There were numerous issues that prevented me from getting hooked. I thought the story was rushed. The dialog was predictable. F-bomb is used unnecessarily. Dual narrator was a little distracting at first but I got used to it. The woman narrator seemed very mechanical. You could tell she was simply reading her lines. There wasn’t much emotion in her voice. The story never grabbed me. It seemed like your run-in-the-mill zombie story. The characters didn’t seem very deep and I was never led to care about any of them. I think I was tainted after listening to Steelheart which is fantastic by the way. Oh well, I gave it it try.

    "Not my favorite"

    I enjoyed one if the authors other books (14), so I thought I'd try this one. Who doesn't like a good zombie tale? I found my mind constantly wandering and I had a hard time telling the characters apart. Plus, the story kept switching from past to present. probably would be a better book to read rather than listen to.

    "slow at first, but grows and is engaging"

    Keeps your interest, even if it's not the deepest subject. Great for road trips and the morning commute.

    Better than most of its kind.

    "Nice light listen"

    It was an interesting idea doing a zombie superhero smash up. Definite had the potential to be drawn out a little more than it was.

    Story
    "Didn't love, but at least it was short "

    A forced mashup concept that felt forced the whole time. Cringe-worthy dialog and a fair bit of sexism. for superhero novels, I enjoyed Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson a lot more, despite it. bring a YA novel
