The third volume of the number one rated horror series is here at long last.
Tap tap tap went the zombie on the bridge. Things are getting stranger and stranger for Adrian Ring, and far more dangerous. It wasn't enough for the people of Westfield to follow Abby and her family home on Christmas Eve and try to kill them. Now they're back for more. In Midnight, the third installment in the smash hit Adrian's Undead Diary series, the threats to Adrian and his new friends are greater than ever before. Local survivors holed up in an empty factory led by the chief of police are now crossing paths with Adrian and the Williams clan. Meanwhile Sean, the bloodthirsty tyrant from Westfield, seethes for vengeance after Adrian fends off attack after attack to take ALPA and everything he's worked so hard for. If they can't get at Adrian, how long will it be before they go after the ones near him? Who can Adrian trust when everyone is out for themselves? Now, at Midnight the darkest revelation of all comes: why. Why have the dead returned? Why are they killing the living? Why do the living only dream of the dead? What has humanity done to deserve such a fate, and what role does Adrian play in this great game?

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
probably...I would probably and will probably listen to books 1-3 again..and keep going...
I like how Adrian asserted himself and just wont take any crap from anyone...he is a good leader!
books 1-3...and now I am abut to start 4! :)
I probably would have I if I could have committed 4 full hours to it...it was really good...probably my fave of the series so far...but I am still in the beginning!!
More of the story, and I liked it the best so far..I like the diary format, with back story in between...it works for me...and I love this genre...if you like zombie and apocalyptic prepper stuff...this is the series for you, plus there is something more going on here...its got a very very supernatural twist to it! I am starting book 4 now!
I loved it! I don't want to say to much, but WOW! GREAT READ:) definitely an excellent continuation of the series. About to start the fourth book!
This series has been a fantastic listen so far! I stumbled upon this series quite by accident, although I prefer to listen to apocalyptic storylines, I wasn't looking for one when I found the first installment in this series. I chose it and am so glad that I did!! The author does such an amazing job of creating drama, suspense, horror , and sorrow through his writing. However, he also throws in those wonderful laugh out loud moments which one must have during a crisis of this magnitude! I find myself listening to these books everywhere! So much so that my husband complains that I don't listen to him anymore! Oh well, he will be fine!!
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
Finding out what happens to everyone. Adrian, Gilbert, Abby, Patty at ALPA, the folks at the school, the ones in England and the ones in Africa.
How everyone is starting to figure out that the apocalypse isn't just an illness out of control - there is something else going on - something more....
I've listened to all of Chris Philbrook's audio books so I've listened to quite a bit of James Foster
I laughed and cried
Yes! I'm not an audio fan at all but James Foster absolutely kills it. There are many different accents and voices that come into play in this one and he nails them all. I had so much fun listening to this book!
The closest thing I can think of is The Walking Dead when the survivors discover there is a much larger world out there and they are not alone.
There are so many. If I have to pick just one, it would be the short story "Midnight". Easily the best zompoc origin story ever and James Foster does an amazing job of bringing it to life.
Adrian always makes me laugh. He is so funny without intending to be and the stuff that happens to him...awesomely entertaining!
Boom! Got ya!
I really have no idea. This series stands alone in my experience.
The factory blowing up.
Zombies are not the only thing hunting them!
Best in the series so far. I really enjoyed this book in particular. Sean is a great character opposite of Adrian.

So, I was a little wary after the first book. It wasn’t bad, there just didn’t seem to be a direction. I continued with the series, though, because it was entertaining regardless. The second book started to give hints to some grander scheme. Not many, but enough to realize there was more to the story.
Well, Mr. Philbrook produced it in this book. I was extremely happy with the direction of the plot. Learning the “reason” for the undead was completely new to me, and I give lots of kudos for originality.
Book 3 also held more action, story sub plots, and character development than the previous three books.
I really liked that not all the “bad” guys were actually bad. This is something that I think is way over dramatized in apocalyptic novels. There would always be a few who would take advantage of the lawlessness, but realistically, most people would be more worried about feeding themselves and their friends/family than raping and pillaging for the fun of it. Sometimes people have to do bad things for survival, but not because they are evil. I really liked how Mr. Philbrook ended the dispute with the other survival group.
As I said in the previous reviews, I am not a fan of switching from first person to third person. And again, Mr. Philbrook does a stand up job at this. Any other author that wishes to do this should take notes from him.
I will also say, for the first time, the narrator “James Foster” started to grow on me. This happens sometimes with audio books. I didn’t enjoy him that much in books 1 & 2, but now that we’re on book 3, I couldn’t imagine “Adrian” sounding like anyone else.
I kind of wish the first three books were one book. I would have 5 starred them all (feeling guilty now that I am full entrenched in the story). From book 1 to book 3, it tells a complete story with a suitable cliff hanger for the rest of the series.
Highly recommend this series.
