Publisher's Summary

Sean Runnette: voice of Zombie Fallout and Lycan Fallout.

R.C. Bray: voice of Arisen and Mountain Man.

Two award-winning zombie narrators go head to head! Each given one of Nicholas Ryan's highly praised zombie apocalypse standalone stories.

There can be only one survivor. Which narrator is the baddest and bloodiest?

1. Dead Rage

When Steve Bannon and the crew of the fishing boat, Mandrake, sailed into Grey Stone harbor, they arrived into the very jaws of a zombie war.

The zombie apocalypse has overtaken the coastal town, and Bannon must fight for his own survival in a horrific world filled with unimaginable peril and betrayal...at the highest, and the most personal levels.

Dead Rage is a white-knuckled ride into the frenzied terror of the zombie apocalypse, where friends become enemies and every step is a life-and-death struggle.

2. Die Trying

Trapped amidst the horror of the zombie apocalypse, three men hear the sound of a helicopter overhead and know it represents their last desperate hope to survive the terror and reach safety. But survival comes at a cost - and the zombie war that ravages the world is not the only lurking evil the men must face.

For Mitch Logan, his brother, Jed, and their friend, Clinton Harrigan, there is no choice. They must fight to survive...or die trying.

    "This was a tie!"

    I was always a fan of Sean Runnette being my favorite narrator but now I have two. R. C. Bray did an equally great job. Loved these books being read by both.

    "The dune of zombies"

    To much side info , describes everything. People's breath and what a wall felt like . R c bray was great . If you like a book like dune it's fine but I found it boring and I could not get through either one . I recommend the mountain man series.

    I think Sean Runnette wins this round. The story line in each book is solid and well worth the purchase.

    Long car rides have rekindled my love for 'reading' I like a good history book, thriller and - most importantly - zombie fiction.

    Story
    "Bray is the clear winner"
    If you could sum up Narrator Battle: Zombie Edition in three words, what would they be?

    Good, Better, So-So


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Both the stories were decent for Z-A. I felt like Ryan was trying to find his footing in "Dead Rage". Almost too much with the graphic description of each corpse, it was like he was trying to find the genre. Once he got past that, things settled into a nice pace. "Die Trying" had a better flow to it, although still a little herky-jerky at times.

    While I'm sure some people loved the whole romantic triangle twist in each story, it really didn't do it for me. And some of the twists were a little cliche. I like my Z-A stories to be simple tales of survival and overcoming the odds, and uncomplicated by the drama of a disappeared world.

    That being said, they were still enjoyable and I don't regret spending the credit.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette and R.C. Bray ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to Sean Runnette before but I will definitely look for his other performances.

    As for R.C. Bray, I could listen to him read the encyclopedia.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    If I had a reaction to the book, it was frustration. I had trouble connecting to the characters at times and I thought some of the plots twists too blase.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it for the performances. I doubt I'll listen to it again.

    "R. C. Bray all the way!"

    Storyline was excellent and R. C. Bray was fabulous as normal. Bray is such a good narrator in my opinion. If this was a cage match our Seabree would've TKO'ed Sean in The first 10 seconds. If Bray would have had his story first in the audiobook I wouldn't even have listen to Sean's past the portion that they get to the dock on the mainland.

    "Hands down!! R. C. Bray!"

    Both are great narrators. But to me I've knocked out more books with RC Bray and he kills it everything. He has a great way of controlling the way you feel with just his words.
    Great job brother

    "Good battle, but Runnette is a tough act to follow"

    I haven't read Nicholas Ryan before so this battle was a good introduction to him. The two stories were engaging, thrilling and both had very satisfying endings.

    For the battle itself, I struggle to name a narrator who can rival Sean Runnette. So for me, this was never really a battle. However, that doesn't mean R.C. Bray isn't a worthy competitor. He is an excellent narrator, giving life to every character.

    I enjoyed the concept of the battle. I've not seen this done before. It its a good way of showcasing am author and popular narrators. Thanks!

    "mr. bray is the clear winner but..."

    the stories are both just so predictable. there is nothing new here, to the point of me shouting at the story to 'get on with it' and forcing myself to listen to get my monies worth. instead, watch an episode of the walking dead

    "Nothing in here we've not read before..."

    This is pretty standard fayre really. After an interesting first few pages which opened up lots of questions around the relationship between the 3 men and the approaching noise it soon drifted into more standard storylines and much used scenarios

    "Good narration but stories lacking"

    Neither of the stories grabbed me. There's an overall lack of a sense of danger in both. Bray offers the best performance by far for me.

    "Sean Runnette - Excellent - Gets my vote!"

    Sean Runnette is a great reader and made the story sound better. The 2 stories themselves were ok, just nothing new, same old same old. Sean gets my vote as best narrator without question. R. C. Bray is ok but a tad 'bland' compared to Sean.

    Sean Runnette is a great narrator, and I will give any book a listen if it is read by him. R.C Bray is a pretty good runner-up though.
