Publisher's Summary

For Michael Roberts, it started out as just another day. Little did he know that when the first siren went off, his world would be plunged into hell. Bitten and infected, you must now experience the horror through Michael's eyes as he lives out what could become his final day.

Cliffhanger ending!!

So this is an extremely short story. It's part one of a serial and normally I don't read things like this till they're all out because they all usually end on a cliffhanger. And yes, this is no different. I wouldn't even call this a cliffhanger ending, it more just ends, which is why it's not a full 5 stars.

I'm not getting into the plot because I will spoil something, so all I'll say is that it makes for a nice change of pace! I loved seeing the Zombie virus from the perspective of an infected person. Michael is an awesome character and the author made him feel real. It was easy to like him and now I'm invested in his story, dammit!! I need to know what happens with him!

In all, I really enjoyed this, despite the ending! I can't wait till the whole serial is out because I reckon it will be a great story. Hopefully I won't have long to wait.

S. W. Salzman was clear and read this well. He knows how to make inflections work and made this all the more exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance.

I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Not your mother's apocalypse...

So, this story hinges on the fact that it is real, and not an authors imaginary apocalypse. The protagonist is infected, and in a race against the clock to try and find a cure. The story is pretty nuclear, sticking with a proscribed set of people, and doesn't stray into epic multi-POVs. This makes it stand out among the multitudes of zom-pocalypse stories out there. I've probably read books by this author before, and I have definitely enjoyed his narration for other authors. It's always great when an author is talented enough, and has the right equipment, to narrate hos own books. This isn't always ideal, but Salzmam pulls it off with aplomb. My only other quirk I need to address with this series is that it is serial. I have never liked a serial story as much as I liked this one. In fact, I despise cliffhangers, but since this story is already finished, I'm willing to spend a little more than a credit to get all three parts.

Mr. Salzman reading Mr. Salzman

I love zombie stories and I love the voice of Mr. Salzman. Combine that with a story he has written and you have one awesome book to listen to. I found this book very interesting as it is from the perspective of a person changing into a zombie...... or is he ??? give it a listen.

Unique Zombie Series

I love how S.W. Salzman took a regular genre and created a completely unique series. I was drawn into the story almost immediately and it kept my attention the whole way through. There's an air of mystery throughout the story too, causing me to throw out predictions and questions in my head while listening. If you enjoy post-apocalyptic fiction or Zombie fiction, you need to check out this book!

S.W. Salzman was already one of my favorite narrators, but with this book he took it to the next level, which I didn't even realize was possible. I'm guessing his deep understanding of the characters and situations really made him the perfect narrator.

can't wait for more

It was a normal day for most everyone until the sirens went off, and then everything changed for almost everyone. Some died, some got sick, some hid, and well some like Michael we still are not sure what happened to Michael, but we are trying to figure it out.

This book or audio which ever you prefer takes you through the first six hours of this final day. There is a lot of action, a lot, and suspense, yep there is that as well. However, you come to be part of Michael's family and care for him and want to see him cured and that it the end of this book hope. Writer and narrator Salzman weaves a great tale that will lead us on until we see the end because it is that good.
