Publisher's Summary

"All of us try to cheat death. I was just better prepared to do it than most folks."In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they've created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge.As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans... there's more than one way to come back from the dead.

Another great sequel!

Loved it, as usual for this series. The connection to the other books is very nice. Some favorite moments were Madeline's story arc, meeting Karen, and how they took down the big bad this time. the narrators did well this time but there felt like some streamlining of some voices this time around; Berry just doesn't sound the same in this book as the last book, and there is not too much difference between Daniel (Cerberus) and Stealth. However, I wholly enjoyed the book.

Totally enjoyable !!! But now I'm finished

Zombies, superheroes, an evil invincible demon! What's not to love!
However- I read this one out of sequence with #4. It didn't matter to the story much, but now I'm totally out of Ex-Heroes to listen to!
Moving on to some of Cline's other works- maybe "The Fold"!!!

favorite of the series

The internal described epic fight scene with the demon caused total imaginative cerebral immersion and raised the bar miles higher than I previously thought possible. if you don't do anything else this year read and listen to this book! PERFECT

Fantastic!

I can't explain why it's great. It just is.

Not only that, by this is probably the best narrator in the business.

Another great book

I love this series. I can't stop listening to it, and I'm going to be very depressed when it's over.

This book added a new hero, and at first her story was really trying for me, but it ended up working out once I got past the initial introduction.

I thought the narration was great, and I really enjoyed all of the voices and narrators, they did a spectacular job. I didn't even notice that one of the narrators from the last book wasn't a part of this book.

Listen to the first two books in the series first, but then listen to this one, worth the credit.

You'd think they'd learn something

Ii would like to see great characters dealing with the world around them vs. making really stupid unbelievable decisions that put them in the shite.

Just fun.

Peter Clines has taken the zombie genre to another level. A lot of tongue in cheek humor. Just listen and enjoy.

Good and solid

This was another entertaining book by Clines. This ongoing title has yet to disappoint. The narrators are very solid in there delivery, which helped make the book that more enjoyable. Can't wait to read the next book and will be a little disappointed when it comes to an end.
