Publisher's Summary

Twelve days ago a deadly infection spread across the world. Populations have been destroyed. Law and order are gone. Life as it was known has ceased. The infected are now the strongest species, and survival has become brutal.

Heather has survived by hiding. Hiding is her thing. People are bad. What others do to survive is no concern of hers. On a mission for supplies, she makes a decision that not only places her in danger but will change everything she ever knew - or believed in....

Set against the backdrop of The Undead - the UK's best-selling zombie horror postapocalyptic series - Blood on the Floor is a haunting tale of courage and loyalty. Listen as a stand-alone or chronologically between parts 15 and 16!

Good and Bad

This is my first Zombie book and probably my last.
The first half of the book was pretty good and very funny in places. But the second half of the book made me want to walk into book and slap some sense into Heather and those spoiled ungrateful children they picked up especially the youngest Anya. If it were my child throwing those temper tantrums and putting the whole group at risk. You should have bought muzzle and a spanking she would never forget.Then the book just got monotonous and very repetitive.

Rachel Hine was good with the delivery of the story

I want more!

So this book should have been read between the last 2 Undead Series...but I didn't know that. However, I read it after & it still is a great back story for Heather & Paco. Trust me, you love it & it synchronizes great with the Series. Just listen & enjoy!!! ;)

Special Story

Well that was a lovely surprise. This should be read after book/day 15. Her monster. Everything I can say would be a spoiler. But this side story, adds to the whole series.

Dont bother with this

I enjoy the Undead series though even that is getting long in the tooth now. I was looking forward to seeing what would be done with this. My only comment is Dont Bother. Bad attempts at trying to link in scenes and characters like Paco as a zombie just screamed Try Hard. If you want to spend over an Hour listening to how a female tries to stop her period than this book is for you... Was not amuseing - was pathetic.

Bridget Jones' Dairy of the Apocalypse

That's the title that this book should have been. If you've ever wondered what Bridget Jones would do at the end of the world, I had not, but now we find the answer. I thought I wouldn't be able to get through the entire book, but it's one of those works that grows on you. it's an interesting concept and a new take on zombies. It made the perfect spring break listen.

This was my favorite of the series yet...

Read this after 15. It is very good. I didn’t want it to end. ❤️ The narrator was fantastic, as was the story.

Interesting- Woman's Perspective

That was interesting- it's a zombie story from the perspective of a woman (periods in the zombie apocalypse and all)-seriously, I did not know that the author was a man until I looked him up after completing the book. The only other author that has done that convincingly for me was Stephen King in Gerald's Game. I read/listen to a lot of zombie books and I'm always purchasing books when someone says "different," and they usually really aren't. But this one was unique and a lot of fun. She's a strong heroin, there's a touch of (really odd) romance, and a lot of action. Obviously a dog lover. Definitely worth a credit!

Nice addition to the series, performance lacking

It's not bad, and it actually gives a different perspective to the main story events. If I were to criticise Haywood for anything, it would be for overusing the expression "a moment captured in time". The narration though was my main concern. I understand the need to have a female narrator to make the female perspective of the book more relatable. It's just that there was little differentiation in tone between trudging through the countryside and battle scenes. Which was a strong point of the narrators of the main series, they would force the urgency of the situation upon the listener when the situation was dire, something that doesn't happen here. All in all, a good addition to the the undead series.

Exceptional !!

Brilliant narration, even though having read the story, it came alive for me on hearing it. so love this series, even the side stories are written with characters so full of grit and determination to survive.

Excellent story

I didn't expect to enjoy this story as much as the rest of the undead series because it doesn't follow Howie, Dave and the group. But I was pleasantly surprised. I loved this book. Bloomin' loved it. As always, RR Haywood's characterisations are fabulous and I enjoyed getting to know Heather.

I didn't listen to this before listening to book 16. But already knowing the ending of this story did not detract from it in any way. I can highly recommend this site sorry to The Undead series.

Strong off story

Being really invested in the main story. It was a little weird in the beginning. Since the main book usually introduce new survivors rather well, and a new narrator on top of. BUT I was just as emotionally invested as always! Excellent book!

An absolute lttle gem !!!

Where does Blood on the Floor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Story is great , and different, but the narration ???? Is wonderful !!! Rachel Hine's soft Bristol drawl , stepped up a notch when paraphrasing the heroine, and a couple more when paraphrasing a farmer !! Sublime !! I struggled for the first hour or so, missing the usual Southern USA growl for a macho storyline, but Rachel imbued the text with comedy, empathy and humanity, probably the only way this story could be told maybe ? I listen to LOADS of dystopian fiction, but this the first book I have come across where the plot is actually improved by the narration ! 12 out of 10 Rachel ! Amazing. I have only got halfway, but couldn't wait to review it !!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Heather

Which character – as performed by Rachel Hine – was your favourite?

Heather ( Paco can't speak of course ! )

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, too long for that

Any additional comments?

Best narration I have ever heard !

More!!!!!!

Keep up coming! I love the standalone stories that merge and diverge from the main story! Don't stop, keep my need for answers and futures for these characters coming. I'm well and truly hooked!

Avoid this one

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I have read and listened to many post apocalyptic novels; I like this genre but I was not prepared for this one; Beauty and the Beast with toilet training!

What could R. R. Haywood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Spent more time considering the plot; the conflict scenes are repetitive and in between there are poorly drawn characters and a ridiculous emphasis on personal hygiene.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rachel Hine’s performances?

No, her style of reading is not a style that I like.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood on the Floor?

All the references to incontinence , menstruation etc. and some of the flight scenes.

Any additional comments?

I rarely write reviews as I am very time poor but I do want to alert other people to this before they buy it; rubbish!!!
