Jim and Karen Blackmore have discovered that when it comes to the zombie apocalypse, there is no such thing as safety in numbers. Between their separate groups of survivors is a city of the living dead, hungry for flesh and growing in numbers by the minute. As Jim and his newly minted gang of zombie killers fight their way to his family, Karen fortifies her hideout and prepares for an emergency escape she knows is inevitable. As night falls and their chances of seeing the dawn seem impossible, Jim and Karen's only wish is to reunite as the end of the world begins.

I hate to say it, but I was really disappointed in this audiobook. I love the series and was eager to add this one to my collection. The narrator didn't do it justice at all in my opinion. Quite often it was hard to tell when he was going from one character to the next, and when he was speaking as a woman, he was shouting or whining when the dialogue didn't call for it at all. It was really distracting and annoying. Then there was the issue of trying to sound like a Latina woman and instead sounding more like a muddled Irish (maybe) accent. I'm not usually such a harsh critic of either sex trying to give voice to the opposite in an audible, but I really hated this one. I love to listen to my favorite audiobooks over again, but sadly this is a one and done for me. I'm not likely to continue buying these with this narrator on board.

The race is on. The last remnants of humankind fight to maintain their very existence. Everything is at stake as they push to preserve their homeland. Forward bases have been established, but they have a long ways to go if they’re to carve out a sanctuary. Not only do the survivors have millions of infected to worry about, but there is a ticking time bomb that they have to diffuse. The western forces have secured an island, but it’s not truly theirs. The air is contaminated by the millions of infected.

I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, but this one left me disappointed. Very little attention was given to the original cast of characters by trying to explain and end the virus. I had a hard time sticking with this one. It was almost like someone else wrote this book. I hate to leave a negative review when I really liked the first two, but this one left me underwhelmed and Audible credits aren't cheap.

The finale of the Zombie Road tale. It's been a month since the outbreak, and the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have started a new life in a walled city. There are still a few enemies that need to be dealt with, the kind that can think and plan, and they can be more devastating than a horde of the undead.

I liked the series for the most part. It is a zombie story so you expect it to be far fetched. It was entertaining and I enjoyed the narrator. If you're at all sensitive about being P.C, then stay away from this series. If however, you can suspend your sensitivities and simply want to be entertained by a zompoc story, it was pretty good overall. My biggest complaint was that I felt it didn't wrap up enough of the storyline for some of the characters. It left some unanswered questions that perhaps the author could clear up if he chooses to extend the series. I'd certainly read it if he did.

I didn't get very far into this story when I had to turn it off. While I love zombie stories there are just some things that should be off limits. When you hear someone describe the rape of an eleven year old girl it's just sick. I couldn't get my headphones off fast enough. I'm thankful I was using them since my own twelve year old was next to me at the time. I honestly don't know how far he went with his description, I don't care. It made me want to vomit. I bought the first two books and audibles in this series and I'll be deleting them from my device. I likely would have bought the whole series had it not gone that direction. So disappointing. Some lines just shouldn't be crossed.
