Publisher's Summary

Earth is bombarded by a meteorite storm large enough to envelope the globe. Cities are devastated, satellites are knocked from the sky, and fires rage unchecked all over the world. In the midst of this apocalypse, a small country town, an Antarctic research station, and a group of stranded airline passengers struggle to survive, even as a new horror rises from the ashes…Welcome to Serial Fiction - with Zombies!

The Zombie Chapters is a new series, and a fresh take on the zombie genre. Its focus is on deep character development and the exploration of truly unique settings and situations. Read along as the serial's main characters attempt to understand, and cope with, the sudden shattering of their world, and a deadly virus that turns mankind against itself by animating the corpses of the fallen!

In Volume I, we meet four of the main characters as they fight to survive an otherworldly meteorite shower. Brad Thomas, a business development consultant, is in a commercial airliner when he first notices the green-tailed meteorites outside of his window. The next twenty minutes of his life are filled with unmitigated horror as he and his fellow passengers wait helplessly for the impact that will kill them all.

Ramsey Claybourne, a military-trained virologist, tries to prepare a small country hospital for the worst, until the hospital itself is struck. Handicapped ten year old Emmy, and her huge, mentally-challenged brother Carter, stare in wonder at the beautiful display in the sky above them. When the "magical" meteorites turn deadly, however, Emmy must rely on her brother's mobility, and might, to save her. Piotr Sayan and his girlfriend Maria, a brilliant Russian meteorite expert, are just starting their day when Mirnyy Station, Russia's largest Antarctic base, is rocked by the devastation of the meteorite bombardment…

    "Please Write Faster!"

    It’s the characters that make this part of the story so good. I’ve always like the beginning of post-apocalyptic books. How everyday people, situations and problems slowly get pushed out of the picture as some strange phenomena grows in import and gravity. Part one of this series is mostly about the characters and their back stories. But it is not dry or low octane. After 30 minutes into the listen I downloaded the other two episodes. So the only negative for me is that I’ve listened to all three episodes and I now have to wait for the next installment. I can’t wait to hear what happens next. Superb narration. Highly recommended.

    "A Good Start, but where are the Zombies???"
    What made the experience of listening to The Zombie Chapters, Volume I the most enjoyable?

    The writing and the performance.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Zombie Chapters, Volume I?

    The little girl in the wheel chair. Very touching part of the story. Makes you hope she'll be ok in book II.


    Have you listened to any of Ethan Sawyer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though the walking dead have not came into the picture yet, this is real good story telling. The author's note in the beginning states that this is a series. Since there are only 3 books, I hope the last book have some type of resolution or a forth, fifth, sixth, etc... book.

    "So far so good"

    Daniel Fite does good work developing several different characters in preparation for the zompoc to come. Unfortunately this short piece doesn't get down to the zombies appearing, but I enjoyed the writing, and the reading enough to search out the next part of the story.
