Publisher's Summary

"Before you embark on a journey of vengeance, dig two graves." - Confucius.

With the dark cloud of civil war gathering on the horizon, Gabriel Garrett struggles to protect his new home and the new life he has just begun. But as he soon learns, a man's past has a way of catching up with him, and Gabriel has more than his share of dark secrets.

When his world is shattered, he will walk a path of vengeance across a land where the dead hold sway, and the living count their lives in seconds. His enemy is the deadliest he has ever faced, and in this battle, there is no justice, no redemption, and no mercy.

There is only revenge.

Where did the zombies go?

Any additional comments?

This is an okay follow-up to the rest of the series but where did the zombies go? This one is mostly man vs bad guy after the world ends kingpin - which isn't bad but this author has written very creepy zombie action and tingled my spine in the past so I was a little disappointed. This series may have run its course. If you have read the rest of the series then this one is worth your time but I may or may not start the next one (if there is one.) Let's just say I'm not chomping for a follow-up.

The best so far...

First let me start off by saying I'm glad Guy Williams returned to read this volume. Though I thought the narrator of book 3 was serviceable- the series is much better with Guy on the mic. That being said, this to me was the best book in the series. I plowed through the last 5 hours of the book non-stop which is rarely something I find myself doing! The book is centered around Gabe which at first had me concerned as I'm a big fan of Eric and his story. Nevertheless it was an amazing story that adds a lot to Gabe's character and the series overall.

Gabriels Story - Get The Next Book!

Gabriel's story fially comes to light. His past and how he uses his "skills" is explained in true adventure form. Full of action and just enough zombie to keep you fearful.

Gabe's Story....

Great twist. Gabe takes lead in this story. Erik, while missed is only a secondary character. great combat description..... and one heck of a sniper battle at the end.

we get more background on Gabe and a great setup for the next story to face Gabe and Erik.

Fire in Winter: Surviving the Dead

Good story, great characters. Felt like I was there with main characters. After getting started reading this book, it was hard to put it down.

Not the best in the series

This installment was just OK.
Seems like it was a little rushed at times.
I am most likely done with this series now.

Excellent novel in a great series.

Glad the publisher returned to the narrator Guy Williams who delivers a great performance in each characters demeanor and conveys the story so well

Don't skip this series!

so glad i picked the series back up. Starts a little slow, and very little Eric in the book but Gabe is an absolute badass and easily carries the novel. The narrator is dope and I hope he never gets replaced. Great audiobook!

Another masterpece in the genre.

Where does Fire in Winter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A continuation of a great story. With engaging character's.

What other book might you compare Fire in Winter to, and why?

J L Bourne`s series, but better than that for realism and apathetic characters.

What does Guy Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Great voice acting breathing life into the protagonists.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Gab has come full circle. from warrior to defender.

Any additional comments?

Loved it want more!!

Gabe's Story

Once again the perfect mix of present and past tense. Fire In Winter not only gives an exciting historical insight into Gabriel Garrett's story, but it also tells the listener how both the main characters are fairing in a world of undead.

The past and present come together in an explosive climax which strengthens both the characters personalities and resolve.

James N Cook at his best. I'm completely addicted...

Much better when you forget Zombies and just enjoy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, i normally like zombie books and really hated book 3 but as had done 3 before i just listened to this as a story and forgot about zombies and just enjoyed the story.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found this good book to enjoy as it goes along but this time i did not listen expecting many zombies or zombie tales as they are just not there. but knowing it i enjoyed it but not emotionally attached to it either.

Any additional comments?

Found 3 disappointing as wanted more zombies but just as a standard revenge story this was quite good.

best book of the entire series!

I really enjoyed this book. In the other books, the author jumped between the two lead characters. With this one, he stuck with Gabriel, which I liked immensely. Can't wait for the next book.
