Publisher's Summary

A strange virus has resurfaced in the Serengeti, not seen since the Second World War, infecting man and beast alike. Its victims soon become violent, viciously attacking anything that wanders into their path.

Logan Reed, a former Australian Special Forces soldier turned African game warden, is at the front line of this disastrous outbreak. Together with his team, including his sister, a Serengeti Zoologist, Logan searches for clues to the contagion's origin in hopes that knowing where it came from will help them stop it.

And they'd better hurry.

It's spreading....

Game Wardens, Nazi's and Zombies, OH MY

I throughly enjoyed 'Plague' and I very much look forward to book 2! I liked this book right away. The idea of having a former Australian Special Forces soldier turned African game warden is already fascinating to me. Add to that the relationship this former solider has with his sister and fellow animal protectors and you've got yourself a fun and action packed zombie thriller.

Though, there are nazi's in this zombie book. Personally, I think nazi's and zombies as a pair have been over done. I KNOW if we try hard enough, we can come up with some historical bad guys that are something other than nazi's. That said, I could accept it since this book had a campy feel to it already. Maxwell Zener does a great job with the narration, in particular the different accents he had to master. I would recommend this book to anyone who might enjoy a zombie thriller set in Africa (but again, nazi's).

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Plague

Not quite sure how I feel about this book. I think this book would have been better shorter. I liked the narrator. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

Solid start to what could be an interesting series

Whilst I have rated this book middle of the road, I actually found the overall story quite engaging. I thought the concept of Nazi experimentation rising 60+ years after World War II was a great way of blending mad science and zombie-like creations.

The characters were well defined, if not a bit too perfect (in the way things seemed to always work out for the main characters), and they all had reasonable back stories to support their place in the story.

I was, to be honest, a little disappointed in the simplicity of the ending, especially after all the chaos the team went through to that point. However, leaving an enticing opening for book two will most likely have me using a credit for a follow on listen.

Thanks to the author/narrator/publisher for providing me this audiobook in return for a honest review.

Interesting take on the zombie genre

Not the typical zombie book. The story centers around a virus developed during the Second World War in North Africa. Sort of a doomsday device by those dreaded nazis.

Discovered again the virus is released into the wild.....

The main character is Logan Reed a soldier that's leads group of special forces types that are the ones tasked with containing the plague. The enemy? Zombies and animal zombies as well
A lot of action non stop which made it fun to listen.

The book was enjoyable not one to take too seriously ( I hope ) but to give you a hero and those awful zombies.

Reminded me a bit of the movie ( and book) outbreak as it included animals that go crazy and both had the theme a horrid African virus created by someone.

The narration was good and fit the characters. I had not heard him before and he did a good job.

So who should listen to the book? Do you like action, zombies , creepy stories? Then give it a listen

I was given the book by the author to review and the opinions are mine after a listen and chance to reflect a bit

Pretty good for what it was

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I thought this was a great approach to the zombie genre. My only complaint is that the main character and his band of wardens seem able to just find everything they need. Apart from that, it was well narrated and written and very enjoyable.

Action Adventure with Zombies and Nazis

This is the usual fast paced retired special forces adventure with the addition of zombies and Nazis. Of course the zombies are both human and animal which adds some twists and lots of flying lead, but nothing really compelling. The plot is so over the top that it hard to take the characters seriously. The crazy Nazi scientists has been done to death and this is not any more believable.
The book was narrated quite well by Maxwell Zener who dealt with the large variety of characters and accents pretty well.

not my thing

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I hate to leave a negative review but I really struggled to listen to this book. I think having a Nazi storyline killed it for me.

An enjoyable take on "Zombie" genre

An enjoyable take on "Zombie" genre. Good characters. Good story development. Good narration, especially with the accents. Ending left room for a sequel. Which I will be looking for. I am glad I listened to this. Good entertainment. I received this for free for an honest review.

Nice story line..

I thought the story line was original. It was interesting how the author brought the Nazis into it. A bit melodramatic but I enjoyed it. I liked the characters and the narrator was pretty good with the different accents.
I did receive this with an audio book credit for an honest review.

A Different War

This is my 1st listen by author and was not bad. It is about an injured soldier, Logan who goes to the Serengeti to become a game warden at the insistence of his sister Cassidy (CJ). It has good character development also enjoyed Fritz. It is full of action, violence; gore as well as mutated animals and humans that are monstrous that spread like a post-apocalyptic story with Nazi involvement. Recommend to anyone who enjoys monster /military thrillers. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you
