"What now, sister?" Tomas asked.
"We kill Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends and then we rule the world," she said absently as she fingered the locket around her neck."
In the latest installment of Mark Tufo's zombie fallout series, Mike Talbot and his family continue their fight for survival as Eliza plots their demise.

This volume focuses too much on history and very little on present. Presentation is great as it has been throughout the series.
Love a Good Audio, and a Great Flip Flop.
Thrilling, Funny, Nail Bitting.
Learning Mrs. Denows real name and the reaction by BT I could see myself saying the same thing. Without spoiling too much for others when Mike learns of his special powers. That was pretty freaking funny in the way he decribes it.
OMG, Sean Runnette is the BEST ever! I mean seriously he IS MIke Talbot. No doubt, and not just Mike, he can do Tracy, BT and all of the other characters without me ever thinking that it is the same person. He is amazing. Heck I think he could even do Henry if he wanted to and pull it off!
Finding the children in the convience store. The scene was written so well that I thought of all the places they have been there was no way that ANOTHER place could be described so well, but this book and the reader does not dissapoint!
I truly love this series and it is much more then just a typical Zombie story it has more of a meaning. Download it and you will see.

Considering that there are about 2 bazillion zombie or zombie like novels (viralistic humans, cannaibal humans, etc...) the 'Zombie Fallout' books is probably the best in my opinion but regardless I think the series should have been a trilogy... Not everyone likes Mike Talbots sense of humor & I'm still confused after all these books what kind of powers, the properties of the infected, & so many other questions regarding books like these... I really lost my sense of any continuity when all of a sudden Mike is a half vampire & the whole chase has devolved into a Benny Hill chase, I can almost here the music..
The 1st three books are good & there are parts of 4,5, & 6 that are worth reading but not enuff to write 3 complete books... I enjoyed Mike Talbots adventures on Indian Hill & outer space... these zombie boks are just draggin on & on.... even Sean who is a great Narrator cannot save this series.
I can see those who love these books & read the whole series & hoping for more, but I'm not one of them....
The scene with the cats was by far, one of the most disgusting and horrific chapters of this whole series. It was so intense I had to listen to it twice!! I absolutely loved it!!!!
I almost passed this book by after reading the other reviews, I am very grateful I didn't. Yes there were a few flashbacks that were pretty detailed and long winded but the minimal annoyance of those chapters was worth the revelations and character growth of this story.
Not to mention that frig'n cat scene, I will remember it for years! If you enjoy this series don't skip this one!!!
ZF5 continues the steady entertainment the Zombie Fallout series has provided. It hasn't jumped above the rest or fallen below the rest - the entire series is consistently good!
It's a solid pace that isn't afraid to get a little wild in its plot devices to keep things interesting and entertaining. Through the curves and twists, no matter what, you won't be putting this story down.
Mike Talbot - he just instills a perfect mix of humanity, levity, and gravity to this character.
You can sleep when you're dead.
The only drawback/reservation I have is the voice acting for the character Paul. Paul slips in and out of a Southie accent as the story telling goes on after book 1, and it's most prevalent in this book. It always throws me off that Paul and Mike grew up together, but Paul is the only one with the accent. It seems to grow more and more prevalent the more the narrator uses the character, as opposed to anything in the story that would prompt it. It draws me out of the story a bit - I'd rather have Paul never pick up the accent.But that's a relatively small gripe compared to the awesome way Sean Runnette manages the rest of the story telling. He slips very seamlessly between the rest of the characters and it's extremely engaging. ZF6 is out, but I'll be waiting for the audiobook version before I get into it!
Yes. Love the humor
All of them The interaction between the characters is wonderful.
Yes. Hated to have to put it down.
I've read the reviews that say skip this one and wait for #6. I don't agree. Well worth the credit. Looking forward to #6
Yes, Yes, Yes. Reason - Mike Talbot - nuff said.
Family and Friendship. In the end that's all there is.
Too many to count.
I stumbled across the Zombie Fallout Series while looking for a new book to listen to, while waiting for my normal series to comeout. The characters are well developed, the story is engrossing, and the humor that Mark Tufo shows through Mike Talbot, has made this far and away my favorite series. Sean Runnette has a fantastic voice, and is right up there with Dick Hill and Scott Brick in my opinion. I cannot recommend this series highly enough !
Monster Hunters International
Where Mike Talbot faced the possibility of having to kill his son
Listen to the first book, and you will be hooked on the series. Get the next one out Mark ... Hurry !!!
I love the narrator , he really brings it to life. The story is really addictive. I love the humor thrown in unexpectedly.
I haven't read any zombie series before. I tried another "zombie" story but couldn't finish it. I truly think this is a one of a kind series. no comparison.
His voice is perfect and the sarcasm is great. The female voices aren't as great but are still humorous at his attempt.
no, I just couldn't wait to get back to this book in any free time I could manage.
I can't wait for the next one. Mark Tufo is definetly a one of a kind writer. I look forward to reading more from this talented author!
I thought this one was so much more entertaining than the previous books of the series. Good action, love the cliffhanger, the twists and turns seem to never end.I so like that this is not some Rambo type story.
I can't really say. I liked them all - well, some I liked hating! Okay, actually I don't care much for the main character's wife. Too bossy. But, I guess he needs a wife like that - you know, more like a mother.
He is a great reader. I will look for his other books. He really brings the story to life.
Only thing I don't like is that so many of the characters have the same wittiness as the main character. That's a bit annoying.
