The zombie apocalypse isn't coming, it's already here.
"Becoming a zombie was much more painful than he had expected."
The world has ended, and the few who are left struggle day-by-day to survive. They hoped that the worst thing they would have to deal with in this new world would be the walkers, who come to rip and tear and kill. They were wrong...
There are things worse than zombies. A refuge for the last remnants of the United States has gone silent and dark, while another has succumbed to the basest parts of human nature. Yet all is not lost, for in the farthest and coldest corner of the globe, marooned in an icy prison, a scientist has made a stunning breakthrough. A desparate rescue mission is launched to bring back the one person who can save them all, but the trip is long and dangerous, and its fate is uncertain.
The first book in the series, The Dying of the Light: End is available now!

It is one of the most interesting zombie books I've listened in 2013
The trip back from Antartica.
It's the first time I listened to him, but he does an excellent job making characters distinguishable and emotional.
No. Lots of tense moments though.
Great vision of the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Totally worth it!
Love me some creepy, scarey, suspenseful, thrilling reading - when discovered I could hear some of my favorites read TO me...Audible had me!
Not super exciting, but held my interest. What bothered me, was that I am sure I heard the narrator either swallowing or chewing gum throughout the reading.... Especially starting around chapter 12. It was a little gross sounding at times, therefore very distracting.
This is the second book in a series titled The Dying of the light. You pick up where the first book ended with our heroes surviving after the collapse of modern society. The difference from most other zombie books is that in this series the government knew of zombies for many years prior to the global outbreak and had been preparing. You follow a team of specialist as they survive in underground shelters and try to wait out the zombies before emerging to rebuild our world. As you would expect things do not go as planned. I really like the book(s) and highly recommend them. I also want to mention the author, Jason Kristopher; Jason is very involved with his readers. This communication with the author adds to the experience as Jason provides hints of upcoming additions and insights into his characters.
The dying of the light: End.
This is the first in the series and a must read.
He did OK, at times he sounded wooden.
Zombies - the biggest government cover-up in history.
Zombies? Where are they? I gotta tell you, I love all zombie / apocalypse / zombalyse books. This one was actually painful to listen to. Characters were so flat for awhile I thought Jennifer/Bill & Kim/David were the same couple! There are three types of movies/books for me. Read & can't put down, listen to while driving or working and please burn the thing. This definitely falls into the latter. I tried & tried to no avail. Sadly the author could have really done something with this one. It is supposed to be a stand alone book but you really have to read The Dying of the Light: End (which I didn't) to understand some things. You can "reference" past characters, and Tufo does this wonderfully with his new Lycon series, without "needing" them in the story. Not this one. Several characters are mentioned & despised but we don't know who they are or why. The premise is good. World ends thanks to zombies, government sets up underground bunkers for select military scientists politicians & winners of a lottery, outpost in antarctica manages to survive etc. It is about trying to survive, dealing with militia etc. The story drug out and I swear my 4 year olds books are more interesting. Dull and flat. I didn't realize there was a book 1 & it looks like that got much better reviews. I really wouldn't waste my credit on this one unless you have absolutely nothing else and are in a dentist chair trying not to pay attention to the root canal you are having!!!
