Dead Hunger V: The Road To California

We used to believe that mankind contaminated the Earth through our use of oil, coal, and other non-biodegradable consumables and pollutants. We never once considered that the planet might one day contaminate us. But that's what happened.  

More than a year has passed since an ancient gas started seeping from every surface of the planet. Nine out of every 10 humans have since transformed into walking dead creatures with an insatiable hunger for human brains and flesh. We, the survivors, are now food for the afflicted… and we are vastly outnumbered.  

So, while it would seem to be an improbable time for a road trip, don't tell Dave Gammon that. 

Dave has fought alongside Flex, Gem, Hemp, and Charlie for almost a year as they struggled to survive each unpredictable dawn in their horrifying new world. Now Dave has a new mission: to carry out the plans he had made with his late sister, Lisa.  

He and Serena will forge their way from Whitmire, South Carolina, all the way to Dunsmuir, California, where Dave hopes to find his uncle - quite possibly his last blood relative. Dave is determined to find out whether his “Uncle Bug” is dead or alive... or something in between.   

But it's a long way from South Carolina to northern California and with the hordes of walking dead between our group of travelers and their destination, it won't be easy.

Our friends have no idea that a young goddess awaits them at the end of their journey...nor do they know whether her allegiance lies with the living, or the undead.

One of my favorites in this series

I've read this entire series and when I found out the author was going to read his own books how can you stop yourself from buying all the audio versions as well. There is no secret I love anything Mr. Shelman writes or narrates. When The Road To California first came out I wasn't so sure how much I would like this side trip Mr. Shelman was taking us on without Flex, Gem and the rest of the main characters. Truth be told, I really think this is my favorite of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed going along for the ride with Dave Gammon and finding out his backstory while he makes his way to California to find his Uncle Bug. So many great characters are introduced in Dead Hunger 5. I have listened to The Road To California at least 5 times already and I will continue to listen over and over. If you've never listened to anything Mr. Shelman narrates, do yourself a big favor and find out why he is the best out there. He will always be my #1 narrator.

a hair raising road trip

Shelman has done it again. His writing is terrific and his narration has so much more than a voice actor could bring to the plate.
