Publisher's Summary

One Tier-1 Naval Special Warfare Operator, trained at the highest levels of any military, with 20-plus years of operational experience. One ex-cop civilian survivalist, who lived through two years of post-apocalyptic hell, unlike seven billion of her fellow humans. And an entire continent heaving with 400 million dead guys. 

To save the lives of his children, and rejoin Alpha team and the fight to save humanity, Homer will have to journey across a thousand miles of undead North America with Sarah Cameron, battling heavily armed bands of marauders who shoot first and ask questions never, and ultimately face down the remains of the world's last surviving SEAL team - now led by a malevolent and piratical monster.

Welcome to the Zulu Alpha

Homer’s odyssey revealed!!

I’m so happy to have this portion cleared up and to hear it blend seamlessly with the other pov. Was it a good story? If you’ve read/listened to ANY of the others then that is the silliest question! It was as great as ever and of course R C Bray continues to excel in bringing a great story to life...in fact I think he adds to them. If you’ve never read these books then sure you could read this as a stand-alone but why would you? Go to the beginning and immerse yourself in what is by far the best military zombie apocalyptic series (my son is part of one of the mentioned groups...can’t say which, and due to opsec he couldn’t tell me specifics but did confirm everything about the way the operators spoke, reacted, and behaved was on point so kudos to Fuchs and his research...this book is being passed around among sf groups!)

Fuchs and Bray have done it again!

I would give this entire series 10 stars if I could. My only critique is that it ends, as I could truly listen to this series nonstop for hours, days, years to come, and still want more. Bravo, Mr. Fuchs!

Love this series!!!

Amazon series of books and struggle to wait for the next! Story is amazing!!! One minor issue "I thought Homer was a black man? Why does it read this book as if he's white? I have no issues with all the white heros and frankly, have love for all of them but, dang! Only have two black heros on the true squad and now it seems as if you've done away with the original Homer... Love this series but that kinda hurt me!😥

Fuchs Scratches an Itch!

I think anyone who has read this series has probably wondered why Homer and Sarah's epic journey across North America to rescue his family was never covered in the original series. It's always seemed odd to me and it seems it's struck enough of a chord with Mr Fuchs too. This book now makes the series feel more complete. This one isn't quite as fast-paced as the concluding the books in the series were . . . but then again, what is? It's still got plenty of action though and we learn a lot more about Homer's background in the Navy Seals. It's a really good addition to the series although perhaps the journey itself wasn't quite as epic as it might have been though the last few hours are up there with the best of the rest of Arisen. Of course with RC Bray at the microphone it sounds just great too making it a worthy companion to this thrilling series.

Pretty good for a 'filler'.

It was obvious, right from when Homer's journey was glossed over in the main series, that a 'stand-alone' was en route. (Call me cynical, but I am fully expecting a short story about Homer's mission to deal with the Russian boat in the near future!) I did enjoy this, but it would have been better placed within the main series. As a 'stand alone', we already know what happens at the end, therefore there is no real sense of peril! Well-performed as always by RC Bray.

Scratch that itch

Fantastic to finally fill that gap after book 3! Excellent narration brings Homer & Sarah's journey to life. Must have for anyone that loves the Arisen series.

Great naration of a great story

Yet again, RC Bray nails the naration of an Arisen story. This story fills a gap in the timeline and takes its place in a series that grips and takes you on a journey you will remember for ever.

really enjoyed it

but it didnt live up to the Arisen series.. I suppose it was necessary to find out how Homer and Sara made it back to the Kennedy, If i had my credit back again I'd spend it on the same book, If you read the Arisen series then this is a must to dot the I's and cross the T's.

Arisen is back from the dead. Thank god and homer!

The whole Arisen series is a master class in synergy between writer and narrator. Zombies versus top tier soldiers in a hands down brilliantly written and masterly narrated fest of fast paced mile a minute action and dialogue. All focused around strong, solid and believable characters who`s struggle against their flaws and the undead hordes are profoundly inspiring. I honestly can not get my fill of this. More Please!!!

Wonderful fill in - really enjoyed

For those following the original ARISEN series this is a great add in. I really enjoyed it but also made me realise how much I had invested in the world building original series (which has unfortunately finished - but far more satisfying than GoT or The Expanse). R.C. Bray could read the phonebook and be entertaining but also Michael Stephens Fuchs is a really gifted writer and you can see how his style has matured becoming increasingly polished w time - seems like v nice bloke too as took time to respond to personal email question about his writing. Wish him all the best and don't wait too long to bring out another series!
