The zombie apocalypse is not forgiving, especially in the world of The Orphans. A group of teens, against all odds, continue to survive against the challenges presented to them in a world where the rules have changed and the Turned are trying to devour them. These are not your typical slow zombies, these zombies are fast, strong, and by far the smartest that you will encounter. Don't miss Strangers!

This is one of my favorite audiobook to listen to. Action books are so great to listen to. You get that sense of almost being in the thick of things with these kids.
Mike Evans has a real hit series on his hands. It fascinates me how much happens to these kids and like my own they are so resilient and keep going. I'm a little saddened that one of the characters I had really grown to love and was rooting for got taken out and turned into a zombie. It seriously made me pull over, park my car, and have a good cry. That's what happens when you are immersed in a book so good you feel like you're living it. I usually listened to this book during the 45 min commute to work. But I was so attached I sometimes randomly drove around just to see what would happen next. Kudos Mike to another great addition to the Orphans series. I'm ready for four!!
Jack Wallen is so talented. He narrated the previous Orphans books that I listened to. Honestly I don't think I'd want anyone else to. He hits the highs and lows, pauses and excitements at just the right times. His rendition of female characters are very passible.
Everyone that loves zombie apocalypse books needs to add this series to their collection!! Those that don't should get it for the great human bonding story.
Awesome story!! It continues where Orphans 2 ended. Its day 3 of the zombie outbreak!!! I laughed and I cried following Shaun and his kick ass friends on their continued struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse! ! They meet some new friends and lost some others! It's a fast paced action packed story that had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end! !! I love that Mike Evans put his own spin on these zombies, they certainly aren't your typical slow moving zombies!! I'll be having nightmares! !!
Mike Evans has hit it out of the park once again.
If you enjoy Zombie Apocalypse this is a series you should definitely check out. In this third book the characters really start to come into own. You are able to see where they are going and how they will be coping with the future if there is one. Excellent story and great narration!
I don't add a lot of reviews . But when I do ..... you know its good enough for me to take time to say wow .
the new narrator really made the book better in my opinion. the story has always been great and is great in this book . I looking forward to the next book
A good continuation for the Orphans, So much stuff happens to these poor kids but they seemed to always be able to handle anything that is tossed out them and stay strong as a team to keep on moving forward. Who can the trust, no one but them selfs. I am excited for book 4
loved like i do all the Orphans books. cant wait for next audible version. mike you are my hero as always. keep up the good work.. feed our appetite for Shaun and Ellie.
By the third book, quite a few series start to struggle with keeping a good plot line going but Evans definitely does not face that struggle. Presenting survival of the zombie apocalypse from the teen point of view is not only unique but reminds you how adaptable teens can be when cut off from their video games and faced with unorthodox circumstances.
Continuing on from book two, Strangers shows the growing dynamic between the teen orphans as they learn to fend for themselves with a little guidance from very few adult figures. Two of whom being Navy seals have a lot to teach and contribute to the growing group as they continue to face the undead, struggling to hang in there waiting for news from the government that a cure has been found.
Truly an engrossing tale and the fact that it is also an audio book is a double bonus as instead of being curled up trying to read while chores are going undone, I can simply hit play and listen while I do my work. I was worried initially it would be hard to follow, but surprisingly it was so easy to follow along, even to keep characters straight. I also enjoy listening to it as I take my walks, I have actually found myself walking longer distances because I was so engrossed in the story. Highly recommend!
I would recommend this series to a friend. The narrator is fabulous and the characters are great! Lots of Zombie gore going on!
