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!
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!!
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!
Maybe in a couple years after I've forgotten some of the story
All of it really.
Just this series I believe, but he IS AUD for me
Book 8 is preordered, if that tell you how much I enjoy this series

This series did a great job at measuring out emotional responses from the listener. It seemed a perfect balance of tension and humour. Honestly I had snot coming out of me a uncontrolled fashion when I heard the shot in the bum story toward the end! The way in which the characters are intertwined with each other and the rest of the story is very enjoyable.
I don’t really need to comment on the plot because this is the third in the series; you wouldn’t start at number three, would you? So I shall keep my comments to the actual delivery of the story: The narrator again does an excellent job bringing the characters to life. The speed of narration was great. I normally speed up the narration to 1.5x or more but this one was perfect at 1.25x
Most of the way through this story I thought this is good, probably the best of the series. But then I got to the end and I was blown away! The ending took me completely by surprise. I won’t give away any plot, but I wonder what the author is going to do if there is another book in the series? I know I will certainly be buying it. In fact I would pre-purchase it!

I was difficult for me to think of anything other that listening to this audiobook after finishing book 2. Philbrook has created a magic of sorts that resonated deep within me. I do have to say that it is starting to bug the crap out of me how dreadfully unprepared, not only with skill but the mental fortitude, I would be if I were in Adrian’s position.
Tipping the scales at almost twice as long as the first two books in the series and by far the longest in the series. I thought to myself that Philbrook must have a lot of ground to cover, boy was I right. There is a ton of stuff happening all around Adrian and his crew. Punctuated with side stories and point of view changes that added so much to the dramatic happenings. This also added a whole new dimension to the story as it would take you back through events where you think you know what has happened. You had no idea what the other side was thinking and doing and planning until now.
Adrian is quite the dynamic character, ex-military, college janitor or something (sorry I don’t remember), now leader of the healthiest encampment of survivors he can find. Who happens to have a heart of gold and is extremely emotionally charged in most of his actions and decisions. All of the characters are interesting, well evolved and not one dimensional. We get to know what is in that head of Adrian’s perhaps more than we wanted, but it adds so much intensity.
The train wreck that we saw start in book 2 has exploded. Lots and I mean lots of death and destruction, but there is also some growth and rebuilding. Here is the long and short of it all: enemies are made, defense is justified, traitors are among us, friends are made, friends are lost, more friends are made, revenge is sweet and dreams of the dead. Don’t worry if this doesn’t make any sense, it will once you listen.
It is all the little nuances that James Foster adds to what isn’t written that makes him so successful as Adrian. Whether it be the sighs of exasperation while listing of the ammo count, or the subtle and not so subtle humorous remarks, that could be taken differently, in the journal entries. He is also one of a few narrators that is able to deliver the story at a solid speed that is neither too fast or too slow. With his familiar and soothing voice he will keep you on the edge of your seat while bringing Philbrook’s vision to life.
James Foster is Adrian Ring just as much as Ray Porter is Joe Ledger. I cannot get enough of either of these guys.

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.
