Publisher's Summary

What will you do to save your family when the zombie apocalypse starts? Because Mike Fletcher will do anything, and that's his greatest weapon.

From the multi-award-winning author Christopher Artinian comes the second book of the post-apocalyptic zombie series, Safe Haven.

A virus has swept across the planet turning people into flesh-craving zombies. The UK and Ireland were the last to fall, but now the virus has won. Cities are infested with the undead. To stay is to die. 

Having fled Leeds, Mike Fletcher and his family thought they had found a safe haven in the island village of Candleton. But their peace was fleeting, and others want what they have. Now, they find themselves in a fresh fight for their lives, battling armies of vicious raiders and fast, relentless zombies. 

Horror and tyranny reign in this new world, and a war is looming on the horizon that only the bravest will choose to fight. The time has come to take a stand. The time has come to find a new kind of hero.

EXCITING

I truly enjoyed every moment of this story. I love the characters and getting to go on these adventures with them has been wonderful. The narrator really brought the characters to life and pulled me right in to the story. I'm looking forward to continuing the journey in the next book.

Great Zombie Story

The author does an excellent job in the continuation of this story. the characters continue to struggle to survive and just when they think they are safe something unexpected happens. Great twist and turns that will keep you wearing your headphones so you do t miss any of the great action. a must listen to story.

New narrator

I have to admit I didn’t think I was going to like the change in narrator. I did enjoy listening to Miss Bretton except for the voice of Lucy. Idk just something it. Lol.

Again another story beautifully written following the journey of Mike trying to find a “safe” home for his family. His history and background as a troubled youth is definitely coming in handy. I absolutely love what I call the machete ballet! I’ve listened to the descriptions time and again and can practically see the blood flying off the ends of the blades.

Beautifully written and could stand alone but still flows well from the first. I cannot wait for the next installment.

Never ending excitement

I have read every available book in the Safe Haven series and have a pretty good imagination but having it read to you actually brings you in to Mike, Lucy and Emmas world. You feel a part of the story. Kim Bretton is a wonderful narrator and can't wait for the next one in the series.

Holy $*&!- need I say more?

Safe Haven -Realm of the Raiders (Book 2 of the Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Horror Series) by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is a fast-paced, on the edge of your seat, wild ride through the apocalypse! Would recommend this series if you enjoy fast-paced zombie action with a great story behind it.

This is yet another series by Christopher I can envision happening...it’s easy to listen to and get sucked in (you’d be best to clear your schedule before you begin listening to both of his Safe Haven series if you know what’s good for you).

What’s it about? Mike and his entourage are settling into their new location, but it’s not long before it’s under attack and things get complicated. You get zombies (descriptions are excellent), action, blood and gore, betrayal, love, family, bad guys, losses and gains, weapons, character growth, killer rats, and more. The minor characters add to the story all in a good way, especially Humphrey (the dog). Nice to see characters from The End of Everything make an appearance. My only gripe (it’s hard to even write this) is I’d like to see the children get on board- they’ve been through a lot in a small amount of time, time for them to get on the zombie killing board or…

The narrator, Kim Bretton, did a marvelous job. She brings the characters to life and is easy to listen to.

Overall, I highly recommend, especially if you are a zombie fan. You can’t go wrong with either of his Safe Haven series.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: this is a dark zompoc book- swearing, suicide of a woman and her daughter, guy treats dead body violently, mention of a suicide pact, violence, weapons, women are forced into sex work, death, Afghanistan mention, and probably more things I’m forgetting (it’s easy to get into the book and forget to write info down).

*I was given a free review copy of the audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you for allowing me to listen and review the book!

Brilliant storyline and narrating

Just when you think these books can't get any better, listen to them. Even knowing what's going to happen, you're still tensed up waiting in anticipation. Kim Bretton does an amazing job narrating! I can't keep saying how much I love the accents, but I am from the US, so I love all foreign accents! Can't wait for the next one!

Incredible Story To Follow The First

After reading the first book I thought I'd try audible. I was worried that as I wasn't reading a physical copy I would not pay as much attention as deserved. But, I evidently underestimated the way in which you are pulled into the way in which this Author writes! With the way work is I have 3 days off which gave me more than enough time to sit down and relax and soak up the story. Again I found myself unable to hit the pause button as I just wanted to hear what was going to happen. Incredible writing from start to finish, thoroughly enjoyable and heart racing moments throughout. If you haven't started this series or any of Christopher Artinian's work, I highly recommend you do. You will not be disappointed.

So good

Really getting into the audio books now. Wasn't sure about audio at first but finding the stories just as exciting listening to them as reading them, I like to do both. It helps when the narrator is so good! Safe Haven is such a good series, great characters, exciting stories and never ending action. Am now an avid follower of Christopher Artininan and will aim to read/listen to everything he has done so far and in the future.
