Publisher's Summary

The Kennedy stares into the abyss

The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her thinned, exhausted, and beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded. Soon the ship's five-acre flight deck will become the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle - like no combat any modern army has seen since Stalingrad. The ranks of the dead are infinite, and those of the living are tiny, depleted, and running out of time...and of hope.

The abandoned run ahead of the storm

Surrounded, cut off, and left for dead, Wesley's band of sailors and survivors race ahead of the city-devouring swarm, desperate for a way off the land. Air strikes and shore bombardment threaten to vaporize them at any instant. The inlet onto which they flee is surrounded on all sides and filling up fast, and the least hesitation will get them all killed, infected, devoured - or all three at once.

The operators jump into mouth of hell

Having already dodged a hundred deaths by inches, the operators of Alpha team and MARSOC now fly into two converging storms of unspeakable violence and must parachute in and reinforce the Alamo - the hopeless and doomed defense of the carrier. A thousand things must go right for them to have a prayer of survival. But it's the job of the operators to succeed even when a million things go wrong....

Ride the human spirit to its utmost limit in the most terrifying and thrilling Arisen book yet: Arisen, book five - Exodus.

    "It keeps getting better."
    Any additional comments?

    I love, love, love this series.

    Forget that this is a zombie book. It's an extremely well written story with believable characters and the best narrator in the business. Each new installment gets better and better. The action walks a fine line where it never feels too over the top and never gets redundant, it's just balls to the wall intense. If you've not listened to this series then you're missing out. Each book picks up right where the last one ended, so you need to start at the beginning, but you will not regret it. The only thing wrong with the Arisen books is that they're too short and there's never enough of them. They're like the audio version of crack.

    "Non Stop Action!"

    I found myself holding my breath through most of this book. It was quite a fun thrill ride. My here are only 11 days until Book 6 is available on Audible, but I seriously cannot wait that long. When I saw that there were 8 books in this series plus two companion books, a sequel and one other, I was simply grateful.

    This is my new favorite series!

    "Seriously good series...."
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The characters are what makes this series. The Zombies are just backdrops to a fascinating, interesting incredibly human cast of rich characters.


    What about R.C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    For me, pitch perfect. Authentic.

    "Big fight"

    Here's the big fight for the carrier, and pretty much nothing else, action, action, action all the way. Funny how I kept thinking, how silly, just run away on the destroyer. Then half way through it's explained the destroyer is just too small for everyone.
    Not much else goes on here, just millions of zombies vs a carrier, well written action book. Oh, and my favorite character is Emily. Her part is so insignificant but she is adorable. Excellent narration as usual.

    "Absolutely riveting!"

    I have never listened to or read a book that keeps me on the edge of my seat like this series and I've listened to literally hundreds. Fuchs and James and RC Bray have nailed it. Hands down the best Zombie Apocolypse series on the market and one of the best military Sci Fi series as well. Characters you root for, non stop action - and I mean that; the Zombies are virtually unstoppable. Start at the beginning and work your way forward, it only gets better with each installment.

    "Best Installment Yet of the Arisen Series !!"

    If you've made it to Book 5 of the Arisen series then I am assuming your a fan of this ZA epic and also of RC Bray's brilliant narration.

    Simply put, I think that Book 5 is the best installment of the series. The action is non-stop and yet does not strain credibility.

    Like the previous books in the Arisen series, the attention to plot details and narrative continuity is superb as is the on-going character development.

    It's rare that any multi book series can sustain my interest and continue to provide legitimate plot and character development that entertains and surprises. Arisen Exodus does all of this, and with real style !

    I just want to say that this series needs a movies/tv show. Best zombie apocalypse I've heard and seeing it visualized that this narater nailed would be terrific

    "12 hours of no suspense"

    Exodus: Arisen is basically 1 long battle scene. Not that the previous books were literary masterworks but they always kept moving along and new challenges and risks were always there. That really wasn't the case with this book as it dropped the other story lines and only followed a single battle. RC Bray kept it interesting but otherwise this is the weakest entry in this series.

    "Maybe its because I'm British..."

    But I just can't get past the iffy UK accents. Given that much of the books action takes place in GB, I think more attention could have been paid to the delivery of accents. That said, its super entertaining, and a great way to make the housework go faster.... Just be prepared for some dick van dyke voices!

    "A Genuine High Quality Series"

    This series just keeps on giving, it's consistently of high quality and the easy summary is that if you liked the previous books, you will like this one too. The zombies keep developing in terms of how they stalk our human heroes and at times the flight for the flight deck was reminiscent of World War Z.

    It's gripping stuff. There were one or two strange moves by the characters that were hard to explain for such high level professionals but war is often as much about stupidity under pressure losing the day as it is about brilliant tactics bringing victory so I think the authors can be allowed this.

    Narration remains very good. Only complaint I can have about this series is that I want MORE than is currently available!

    "Heading in a great direction...."
    If you could sum up Exodus in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, exciting, tiring...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Exodus?

    There were too many parts to list, but I can’t help but think that the authors may have paid some homage to ‘The war of the Worlds’ (book version) perhaps with the callsign of the fighter plane that saves the tiny yacht when it is trying to make its way out to open water…… There were others, but that one stuck….


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The battle on the flight deck was very gripping with some fast passed action. The description of the multitude of dead trying to overrun the deck was reminiscent of the scenes in World War Z (film version) where the dead overran the walls around Israel. There were a few things that they (the character’s) seemed very slow in putting into action or even thinking about that seemed quite obvious to me, but I shan’t say what they were, you will have to listen to it yourselves without me picking at it! The Arisen series are one of my most favourite zombie stories ever, and I’m keen to see how things pan out in the next book and anticipate running into Zak from Genesis. Excellent.


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

    Finding and saving the dam dog.


    Any additional comments?

    All in all I am very pleased with the entire series. Yes there are some parts that make you question the occasional stupidity of the Operators when seemingly obvious mistakes and errors are made, but it is a story. It is designed to drag you in and occasionally curse and shout "You idiots!", but that is what a good story is supposed to do. If you haven't tried any others, then "The Remaining" by D.J. Molles is also panning out very well. Also "Plague of the Dead" by Z.A.Recht was very enjoyable and only overshadowed by the authors sad and untimely death before he could finish anymore. RIP Mr.Recht. Then there is “We’re Alive” and of course “The Walking Dead”. Listen to them all…..

    "Too predictable, Too formulaic, Too Expensive, Too enjoyable"

    Stupidity on steroids, over priced per book, comic strip fantasy, weak plots, utterly predictable most of the time but pulp fiction that is often very entertaining to fall asleep to. This is digital story telling either full on or full off, it lacks any true human complexity, any sense of realism or depth, the author appears unable to wander beyond his trite shovelling on formula. One foot chomping mistake was accidentally referring to one of the 2 US divisions dropped in Normandy in 1944 as the Eighty SIXTH airborne ! DOH!😮 Unforgivable error in the context of military pretentiousness? Nah but still DOH!!!!
    I bought 5 of these so far so pls don't take offense or assume this as a solely negative review and I would continue however I cannot justify the cost per book, per hour to continue. There are some screwy prices on Audible and its shows they know it by combining the first 3 together. 8 or 9 hours at the same price as books 2 to 5 times as long forces one to assess critically the value of continuing with the series, knowing its gonna be more of the same, entertaining but too expensive?

    "Awesome!"

    I really hoped we'd follow Sarah and Homer to some extent through this last book and maybe even some of this, but we didn't.

    I did enjoy this a lot, the action was totally intense, will they, won't they. Just brilliant and totally had me on the edge of my seat. However, that ending, so worth it. This was one of the more exciting parts to this series, at least so far for me. I'm wondering how on earth the authors manage to keep up this level of intensity, but they really do a great job.

    RC is also one of the best narrators I've listened to, I love his Yorkshire and English accents, yeah maybe not quite what I'm used to as I live here, but they're pretty realistic. :)

    "Pretty damn good"

    I have enjoyed the series so far but it definitely gets better as they go on.

    This one has a slower start but gets balls deep soon after. Overall some pretty intense and good stuff. My personal favourite part was preds utter destruction of the dead and turning the tide halfway through the fight for ammo city.

    Would recommend, slightly better than the previous books.
