Publisher's Summary

“I didn't see Rebecca die the second time.”


The United States military hides a secret: the completely real existence of one-bite-and-you're-dead zombies. An elite Special Forces unit has known they exist for over a hundred years, and has been quietly and expertly keeping the monsters at bay… until now.


The sole survivor of the massacre at Fall Creek joins this elite unit to combat the single greatest threat our world has ever known. Even as victories over the walkers mount, true evil still lurks in the hearts of men, and at the last, only a brave few may survive.


A character-driven story similar to The Walking Dead on AMC, The Dying of the Light: End was a Top 5 Finalist in Kindle Book Review's “Best Indie Books of 2012” competition. The sequel, Interval, is now available.

    "Great story, perfect for listening"
    Where does The Dying of the Light: End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Kristopher’s writing is engaging, and he fills this story with a number of compelling, interesting characters. I found it enjoyable, a perfect combination of suspense, drama, emotion, action, and..zombies! The storyline and characters makes for some great entertainment.

    Narration by Ciulla really made this even more enjoyable. His diction and pacing is superb, and he brought dimension and believability to each character. It's amazing how the right narration can really complement a great story, adding to the experience.


    Have you listened to any of Chris Andrew Ciulla’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ciulla is definitely one of my favorites, and his performance was excellent as always. I especially loved his work in this story because of the wide range of characters he portrayed. Each character was brought to life thanks to Ciulla.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but I never do. I prefer to listen during my work hours, when I spend 8 hours in front of a computer.


    Any additional comments?

    A great story by Kristopher, improved with the storytelling by Cillua. Fantastic experience.

    "Great listen for any Zombie fan!"
    Where does The Dying of the Light: End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Dying of the Light: End definitely ranks in my top 5! The narrator, Chris Ciulla, keeps it fun and makes you want to keep listening even when it gets a little hokey.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main hero in the book, David, was a great character. Some cheesy lines but overall quality.

    Story
    "A fresh approach to the zombie genre"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?


    I RECOMMEND IT.

    Premise: The government has been covering up zombie outbreaks since President Ulysses Grant’s administration, but now the entire world is being overrun with them. The zombie apocalypse is not coming, it’s already here! The book follows a Special Forces military group called AEGIS (which by no coincidence is the name of the shield that bore Medusa’s head in the Iliad). This group attempts to suppress the rise of ‘walkers’ but time is running out – great suspense without having to wade through a lot of 'zombie-gore'.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to book two in the series.

    Story
    "The Dying of the Light: End"
    If you could sum up The Dying of the Light: End in three words, what would they be?

    Our World's End


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dying of the Light: End?

    The deaths of some of the members of Alpha team and the whole second half of the book, when the $#%@ hit the fan...


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. The zombie outbreak is explained and justified in the narration, and you could see how a group of soldiers are trying to do their job no matter what. I also liked how the author handles the global reaction to the outbreak in a very realistic way.

    Story
    "Painfully hard to listen to"
    Would you try another book from Jason Kristopher and/or Chris Andrew Ciulla?

    Absolutely not.
    The voices are giving me a headache. Not to mention the ridiculous attention given to rank and the insanely easy ability to achieve it. Since I wrote this review I must now a brigadier general! Too many characters doing nothing and so many rank changes I just can't keep up. I stopped after 7-8 hours of torture. Where are the zombies??? Maybe they come in the last 3 hours. I guess I will never know.


    Has The Dying of the Light: End turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No I do not believe this is even in the genre I read.


    What didn’t you like about Chris Andrew Ciulla’s performance?

    Annoying voices


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It gives you the ability to daydream when the annoying voices are not used.


    Any additional comments?

    Please no more like this. It was so disjointed and ridiculous even for a "zombie" novel.
