Publisher's Summary

Without warning a virulent man-made disease has unleashed a biblical terror on the World. The United Kingdom is hit particularly hard leaving few places to hide in an overcrowded country. 

Nine months later the ghouls outnumber the living by thousands. Survivors live an endless toil of searching for food and protecting the living. Some organisation exists, but is collapsing. Jack leads a trio of men hated by the rest of the survivors. Their job is to protect the integrity of the safe haven by preventing the infection from ever entering. 

On a reconnaissance trip they come across a woman and her two children. Jack, the leader, comes to the realization that children are the key to the survival of the human race. He shifts his allegiance from slaughtering the infected to getting the kids to a possible safe zone.

A dececnt story if you stick with it!

Beyond Isaiah is your basic zombie apocalypse tale. People struggling to survive day to day. Some people even think about a future and strive to make preparations for that. This is one of those stories. What’s a bit different is these zombies are more debilitated than your “standard” zombie. These poor souls cannot see out of their hard-boiled eyes. Evidently their sense of smell is sub-par as well, as people are able to sneak by them. Best of all these zombies are named Isaiah. Why? Well, you won’t find out for quite some time and I’m certainly not going to tell you. It’s a decent story if you stick with it. The final couple chapters are excellent. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Beyond Isaiah

This was an okay zombie story. I think the narrator made the story better with his performance. I received this audio book for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

i really need to make sure i check who is narratin

I was very interested in the story line when I bought this book. I may have been able to enjoy it and follow along more closely if the narrator was not so boring. The accents were laughable , the child voice was awful.. there was no emotion in the reading or TELLING of this story. I lost myself half the time because I would find myself nodding. I may try to read the book to see if it is more interesting. but I definitely will be looking at narrator names from now on before I buy anymore audible books. I will start to keep a list of names on narrators as I am new to audible. Some narrators prtray the characters to the point you can imagine you are actually listening to the "person". they draw you in with their excitement, sadness or any other emotion the characters may be feeling.

But not this one .. very MUNDANE NOT A FAN !

Beyond Isaiah

This was a fair to good Zombie apocalypse book.There was not enough background on the main characters.I believe fleashing it out a bit would help. D. Michael Hope was a fair to good narrator..It seemed like just when things would start flowing nicely between story and narrator,we swicthed to somoene elses story.Also,since it was set in the UK,why not have a Brit accent?I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

OK

Beyond Isaiah. A post apoc set in the UK zombies by another name but above average in that genre.
A little vague on location, and - no! (I don't do spoilers).
An entertaining read that is well worth the time. What can you say about zombie genre - fast paced and full of action.

solid, if kind of short zombie story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I love a good zombie story, especially when they go into how the apocalypse started. This one took a little bit to get going, but once it did, I thought the pacing was pretty good. It was a little short, but the story held my interest throughout. The narration is pretty good, as well. All in all, if you're a fan of the genre, this is worth checking out.

Really entertaining zombie outbreak story!

This really was an entertaining zombie outbreak story. Likeable characters that I really began to care for. Lots of twists and turns that honestly took me by surprise. And an ending that I did not expect. Hope this author does more zombie apocalypse stories. I will listen to this again. I received this for free for an honest review and mean every word.

Hot mess

I appreciate anyone with a desire to be creative, and it's clear that Mr. Huggins is a fan of the zombie genre, so I hate to say it but unfortunately Beyond Isaiah is kind of a hot mess. Flat unbelievable characters, with most of the story being told in long stretches of either backstory or info dumps where all the action is recapped. We aren't even really given the explanation of why the zombies are called Isaiah's until near the end of the book, though that doesn't seem to matter because on more than a few occasions the zombies get referred to as Walkers, making me wonder if this started out as TWD fanfic. As I said, I appreciate anyone trying to be creative and being willing to put themselves out there, but I think Mr. Huggins needs to spend a bit more time honing his craft.
