Publisher's Summary

Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies.

A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected. Even death can’t stop the virus - its victims become frightening and deadly cannibals. Scattered across the world, embattled groups have persevered. For some, surviving is the pinnacle of achievement. Others hoard goods and weapons. And still others leverage power over the remnants of humanity in the form of a mysterious cure for Morningstar. For the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure goes on....

    "Best of the books"

    I was so happy to see that ZA's story could be finished so well I did not like book one but I guess I did enough to get book 2 it was better and 3 was better still. I liked the mix of type of zombies it made for a best of both worlds. I know I'm liking a book when i care about the people in the story. and after 3 books I cared for them.Not a great book but good.

    "YES, GET THIS BOOK"

    This was one of the greatest endings to a series. I wish there would be more, but hey, all good things come to an end eventually. I was really envolved with the characters and wanted to cry, laugh and punch them at times, which when listening to an audio book a work is not a good thing. Its worth the credit....the ending alone is so packed with action that its worth it.

    Story
    "This is my 2ND review-First one was censured."

    This story has been done several times over. The "OMEGA MAN", starring Charlten Heston was the first in my lifetime, then Will Smith starred in the next "virus gets out" type story; I forget that titles name.

    Anyhow, my problem is I've listened to so many books, I need to find new authors. This book is a simple, redundant, same old virus wipes out everyone, but like usual, one guy is immune. Big surprise there.

    In conclusion, the book wasn't terrible. If you have not read "OMEGA MAN" or have seen the latest Will Smith movie, then this book is a 5 on a scale of 10. I have also found a "SERIOUS" drought in truly captivating plot lines or story lines in the last six months. Selfishly, I hope some new books come out which the reader can not stop listening to it.

    NOTE:***** I am finding this in "The Twelfth Imam", followed by "The Tehran Inituative!" Go buy them. They are my first two books by this author. I am impressed which is not an easy thing for an author to get from me.

    Story
    "Dont believe the negative comments"
    What did you love best about Survivors?

    I reviewed a lot of comments about how the story wasnt true to the first two books. Also, complaints about certain characters dying and doing so quickly. So I started the book assuming the worst. By the end I felt it was true to the series and well done. So there isnt the Hollywood everyone and their dog some how lives happily ever after ending ... so what. The focus on this book is different, but everything tied together for me. I thought the end was well done. If you liked the first two books you will like this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Survivors?

    The final couple hours of the book were great.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would say the last two minutes. The scene, to me, tied up the intent of the author relative to the sacrifices made in the book.

    Story
    "Why Oliver WHY?"

    I was so eagerly awaiting this book. I can only imagine how hard it was to step into Z A's shoes to finish this trilogy. So I did not anticipate that he would be able to capture the same humor and vibe of Z A's style and characters but I wasn't going to miss out on the end though.. What was the horrible reality though was how Oliver Wyman totally blew off the characters. None of them sounded the same or even remotely had the same personality! Brewster sounded like an okie red neck not at all the tone he used before. Jack, hello? He sounded like he was from Wisconsin not down under! All in all it was a real let down. Like I said, I didn't expect that the ghost writer would capture Z A, but how could he? He had big she's to fill and kudos to him for going into a situation where he was already down. The real disappointment was Oliver and he's by far my favorite narrator! If I were Thom, I'd be mad that Oliver didn't live up to his end of the deal.
    The book also leaves things up in the air so if you expect resolution, you won't get it. :(

    "Pretty good"

    This last part of the trilogy seemed to wander a bit more than the first 2 parts and the ending was a bit abrupt but not a bad listen. It brought the story to a close. I'm going back to listen to all 3 parts together to see it was a difference in writing style or maybe plot that left me feeling it was only a 3 star listen.
