A new landscape was formed after the storm, and with it the promise of a new beginning.
One race to dominate this land. One race to survive.
Words were uttered beneath the Saxon while Howie fought the undead.
Words that brought a whole new pressure.
To be relentless and unceasing. To charge forward and never give up. To do what it takes to survive.
That pressure was building, and it became too much. Howie faltered, losing his mind as they ran through the fog and sought the doctors so desperately needed at the fort.
The final act was a simple one. A stubborn man spoke through an intercom at the munitions factory, and his words sparked such a reaction in Howie that he fell apart in front of those who love him the most.
The Undead continues with day 16.
Too many laugh out loud moments to count. Vivid characters. I await 17 with impatience.

I have bought and listened to all 19(including the side stories and free deleted scene) audio books in the last 2 months and I cannot wait for the next one. I love the series and Haywood's style of writing. I was very unhappy about the narrator change after book 10 but after book 12 Joe has done an amazing job.
If you are familiar with this series you already know the caliber of this writer. This story just continues to show his growth as a story teller. Listen in order of course but don't miss out on this series.
I have fallen in love with these characters like they are family. No... I don't feel as close to most of my family as I do to this lot.
Once again, realistic reactions to surreal situations. I am beginning to think that R.R. has some sort of time machine and has lived this.
Oh wait, I think that is another series....
Ugh! I want more The Undead!!! I can't get enough of this series. Why hasn't this been made into a series? Seriously!!! This is so good and like the other gabillion books before this one, this one does not disappoint! So excited for future installments!
Just when I think it can not.. it keeps entertaining me. I almost don't want it to end.
audio was really quiet, and they forgot to hit it out the rewrite so you would hear a sentence and then hear the same sentence slightly differently
So what's soooo good about this series when I've abandoned many others?
The characters - so varied, so real, so down to earth. I cry with them, I laugh with them (and their stupid jokes), I fall in love with them. I am strangely proud of who they are.
The plot - keeps twisting and turning without being ridiculous. Battle scenes are huge and inspirational, the smaller, quieter moments are often hilarious and equally often lovely, small studies of human nature.
The narrator - Joe Jameson does a simply outstanding job of bringing the many key characters and scenes to life. He is a HUGE asset to the series (as was the narrator of the early books, Dan Morgan).
Full disclosure - I'm British (living in Oz). The story and narration are British. With the abundance of American options on the market, for me, this series really stands out as a study of human nature in the face of extreme adversity. If you like the English accent (of which Joe does a fab job of many and varied accents) you will quickly become addicted to The Undead.
As with all well written 'zombie' shows, it's not about the zombies so much as what their presence brings out in the survivors, tho to be fair, in The Undead series, the infection is an interesting character in itself, which offers another unique dimension.
If you hadn't noticed, I really love this series. When new eps come out I listen to all the old ones again just to string out the suspense and make the new eps last longer.
I've just discovered RR's sci-fi series Extraction also which is proving interesting too.
What a bloody talented man!
Any additional comments?
This is the best zombie series I have ever listened to. It is engrossing.
This is a zombie apocalypse series. There I’ve said it.
Having got that out of the way I struggle to understand how some reviewers think this is plagiarism. Not sure how you copyright zombies.
I adore how this series has evolved and how it focuses on the characters as they evolve. To me as a reader I enjoy the 5 minutes of banter about very little as that in itself is thoroughly entertaining.
If you haven’t started already the extracted series is a must.
Keep writing, in me you have a fan
Please. These are just getting better and better. RR Haywood, I love you. Also, amazing performance by Jo Jameson!
What made the experience of listening to The Undead, Part 16 the most enjoyable?
everything about this series of books is enjoyable, I find myself laughing crying and sometimes shouting out loud to not do things. Fast paced far fetched but utterly compeling
Who was your favorite character and why?
without doubt Dave, slowly coming out of his shell bodyguard and devoted warrior
What does Joe Jameson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
whole lot, he is both female and male, different characters are bought to life by his narration
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I had the time I would
Any additional comments?
Just finished this now waiting for part 17 and 18 to become available
Big fan of the books read them multiple times over great zombie books and keeps getting better and better and keeps you on your toes!!! Builds up a real connection with the characters and it makes you feel let f the story!
another brilliant read can't wait for the next day hopefully not to long keep up the good work
I have enjoyed every part of this entertaining series. The tone, intensity, the jokes, the way that every new part of the story manages to be interesting. The character interaction is simply the best I’ve known... When Joe Jameson initially took over the narration, I was disappointed (Dave’s horrible voice etc.)... However, he’s taken feedback, tweaked things and has taken the story to a different level. He’s massively talented and I’m amazed at the array of voices he can portray so easily.
I will now await a further instalment, and I hope it doesn’t take too long!
this is a fantastic seriesn
a must read for any zombie fans with a sense of humor?
really enjoyed it. love the banter between the characters made me laugh out loud. esp paula and dave and reginald my favourite characters in the books. the books are addictive listening and unfortunately there is no part 17 as yet. when will this be available?????
yet another fantastic instalment of the undead series can wait for the next book to come out.
I have been hooked from the first book in the series now I have one more finished the last book16 and will have to wait for the next to be available, what a bummer, I hope that it's not going to be age's till they have it in stock.
