Publisher's Summary

It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed, and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood, and bodies, these modern-day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land.

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy's powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all.

What the Critics Say

"Once you read the first few pages of Zombie Fallout, you're in for the series." (John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family)

“The word lighthearted doesn’t usually come to mind when we think of the zombie apocalypse, but Sean Runnette does a skillful job balancing humor with horror in this audio edition, which makes for an entertaining stroll with the walking dead…Runnette gives Talbot a dry, I-knew-this-was-going-to-happen-to-me-someday attitude that captures the wry spirit of Tufo’s prose. This provides a welcome departure from the doom and gloom of most zombie tales, and Runnette wrings plenty of chuckles from the material. Still, the narrator doesn’t forget that this is an apocalyptic horror story, making sure there are plenty of chills and thrills along the way.” (Publisher’s Weekly)

    "Zombie Comedy?"

    If I knew the author was going to (attempt to) make jokes every other paragraph I would've passed. I hung in there for an hour but then couldn't take it anymore. It's not a pure horror book. First book I quit on since opening my Audible account four years ago.

    "Good"

    I first bought Lycan Fallout, it was on sale, before I realized this series was connected. If you do this, Tommy will be very confusing to you, FYI. I mostly enjoyed the book. Mike Talbot is a great character. However, some parts seemed unnecessary and pointless. I honestly saw no point in Tracy's viewpoint parts, I actually find Tracy annoying in general, and sometimes it took longer than it should have to get to certain points. I ended up skipping 30 secs quite a few times just so I could actually get back to the story. Overall, I liked it. And don't read or listen to Lycan Fallout before this one or the series.

    "Hilariously funny and scary."

    Loved the Narrator. He made me believe this is what really happens during a Zombie attack. John Wayne and Kevin Hart inside of one man. My Hero.

    "Love the Zombie Fallout!"

    I had originally read the books awhile ago and thought that picking them up on sale in audio would be fun. I love the way the narrator gets the voices to just what you think that character may sound like the sarcasm, pain and stress. I recommend them, lots of fun!!!

    "predictable"

    It was an ok story with some humor thrown in. Good concept, but predictable. Not certain if I will continue the series.
