The world of Dematr had been locked unchanging for centuries by the Great Guilds, most people living in a world of oil lamps, crossbows, and horse cavalry, the Mechanics reserving to themselves the technology for steam locomotives, rifles, and far-talkers while the Mages treated all others as if they were nothing - until Master Mechanic Mari, dragon slayer and pirate queen, and Master of Mages Alain raised the army of the new day to free their world.

Just as his previous books, Jack Campbell hooks you in immediately and makes you want more. Macleod Andrews performance is as exceptional as previous. when can i order the next one is my only regret of preordering and listening to in a day. :)

One week ago, there were over 300 million people living in America. Today there are less than 5,000. After a man-made plague destroys the population, cities burn and the government crumbles when the dead come back to life as flesh-hungry zombies. Wim, a 30-year-old farmer, purposely kept himself cut off from other people, but when the undead arrive at his farm, intent on eating him, he's forced to venture out into the land around him and fight to save a world on which he long ago turned his back.

I have to say i was pleasantly suprised and am looking forward to the next chapter.

Tony Urban sets a very detailed world that steers the imagination left right and sideways. The story is reminiscent of the the beginnings of TWD and sets up many diverse characters/storylines right from the beginning.

Eric Moore's performance of the book is excellent. His eloquent storytelling brought out the emotions of the moment in the story and really carried me in the first few chapters while the storylines were being set up. Then as momentum built I felt like i was listening to an old time radio serial and couldnt wait to hear the next chapter for each character.

If you are a fan of the zombie genre described like you are there in the moment, The Hell on Earth series is one to follow.
