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)

    Talbot of course but Tommy was funny he does an amazing job with all of them.

    "The author must be a very twisted individual ."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was full of dark humor and sarcasm.


    What about Sean Runnette???s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for the main character, Mike. He has a very dry tone that perfectly compliments Mike's sarcasm.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this one so much, I immediately bought the next and the next until I had bought (and listened to) all four that are available on audio. I wish I could find more to read that is similar.

    "A zombie book with comic relief! Genius!!"

    I love this book, the strange workings of Talbot's mind cracks me up and comforts me at the same time, It's nice to know you're not the only one with strange errant thoughts, and anyone whose been through war or in the military can relate to the strong bonds of friendship you make when you go through a disaster or crisis, If the apocalypse comes, I'm finding a Talbot!

    "Zombies? Me enjoy a book about zombies? Heck yeah"

    I've never seen a zombie movie or read a zombie book before this one. I do greatly enjoy Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden and select sci-fi but I am usually a mystery girl all the way.
    Loved it! Action packed like Clive Cussler's books. Maybe it is just because I am new to the zombie genre but I listened to all of Zombie Fallout Series in one week.

    The characters are great. The repartee is hilarious as long as the F word(in all its tenses and variations) doesn't bother you. Mike Talbot is the main character and he is filled with quirks and phobias that might make you think that you are sane. Great interaction between the characters and various locations and zombie battles make it a non-boring read. And Henry the bulldog is fantastic!

    "Excelent book"
    Would you listen to Zombie Fallout again? Why?

    Worth a second listen, the author and narrator did a fantastic job with this book, and there are some fantastic plot twists.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike Talbot and BT.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    The narrator brought the main character to life, to the point of making the listener feel that he or she may actually know someone like that.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The event with Eliza and the Armory Zombie.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is so compelling (if your a zombie novel fan) that I didn;t with to get more credits to get other books in the series.

    "Not really a big Zombie reader, but..."
    Where does Zombie Fallout rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like zombie flicks just like the next guy, but in general I'm a hard-core science fiction reader. However, between this series and JL Bourne's series, I'm starting to look for zombie post apocalyptic books. This series is riveting with the occasional tongue in cheek hurmor that I find myself laughing out loud occasionally. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't count this as a comedy, but there is some humor mixed in with the zombie killing and narrow escapes. Now I've got to use my remaining credit for the month on the second book. Arghhh.
