A walled city surrounded by lush land, protected by high mountain summits, and fortified by a massive gate to secure the only pass into the valley, The Bastion remained humanity's last hope against the fearsome undead creatures known as the Inferi Scourge. On one fateful day, the valley gate failed and the Inferi Scourge overran and destroyed the human settlements outside the walls, trapping the remaining survivors inside the city. Now, decades later, the last remaining humans are struggling to survive in a dying city of dwindling resources...and dwindling hope.
Vanguard Maria Martinez has lived her entire life within the towering walls of steel. She yearns for a life away from the overcrowded streets, rolling blackouts, and food shortages, but there is no hope for anyone as long as the Inferi Scourge howl outside the high walls. Her only refuge from the daily grind is in the arms of Dwayne Reichardt, an officer in the Bastion Constabulary. Both are highly-decorated veterans of the last disastrous push against the Inferi Scourge. Their secret affair is her only happiness.
Then one day Maria is summoned to meet with a mysterious representative from the Science Warfare Division and is offered the opportunity to finally destroy the Inferi Scourge in the valley and close the gate, reclaiming the lost lands and energizing the populace with renewed hope for the future. The rewards of success are great, but she will have to sacrifice everything, possibly even her life, to accomplish the ultimate goal of securing the future of humanity and saving it from extinction.

how to you really survive after the out break? How is your life going to be? This will give you an idea if how things may be in 200 years
Kept me interested. Lots of gore and technical battle stuff. If that appeals to you it will probably keep you interested. I did have a vested interest in what happened to the characters and that, to me, is what keeps you wanting to continue with a book. Not your typical scary zombie offering but the behaviour of the 'powers that be' (military and political) is disturbing... The narrator does a great job. Well set up for a sequel.
I liked this book.
Well written, nice naration.
Future apocalypse type zombie story with a little surprise twist.

A different take on the zombie tale.Prehaps its because im from new Zealand but I liked the narrator, so give the lady a break. I was a bit skeptical after reading some reviews, but the story is original and it keeped me listening and I didnt get bored.The ending was what I want in a book. Not all doom and gloom.
Different - Thrilling - Exciting
The story is great and the idea quite different from anything I have read or listened to. My only complaint is the orator was not that good. She improved as the book went on however it was painful to listen to when it starts.
Didnt even get past the first half hour!!!!! The writer trying to rename the zombies the Inferi Scourge was just plain annoying and the fact that its said about a billion times in the first half hour just made me want to shoot myself
CALL ZOMBIES ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She reads way to fast like everything is constantly action!!! Makes it hard to listen to, i thought it might get better but couldnt make it past the 30min
maybe if zombies were called zombies and a different narrator
DONT WASTE ANY MONEY OR CREDITS ON THIS BOOK
it was like listening to a robot read the book . it was so fast i had to check my playback speed . so i can not give a fair review of the story but this version sucks .
Love horror, have listened to every zombie book available on audio book. Name one, and I've listened to it!
The story is awsame
The ending, so full of hope!
listen to it, and you will love it!
