Publisher's Summary

Edge of your seat thrills from the master of the zombie apocalypse. Also includes the Salvation Chronicles (find out about other survivors in different parts of the world). 

Sometimes being alone is better....

The world has crumbled, and the dead walk the Earth, but all is not lost. A group of survivors, led by weary veterinarian Anna and gruff loner Garfield, seek salvation at an abandoned pier where the dead can’t reach them. It's a place they might be able to call home, but then again, nowhere is truly safe.

The dead are everywhere but aren't the only threat. Other people survived the apocalypse, and when an injured man turns up at the pier, it sets into motion a terrible chain of events. The world may have changed, but people haven’t.

Excellent Story!

I received this audio book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is one of the best audio books I have ever listened to. It comes complete with ominous music and even sound effects. The writing and narration are both superb.

Must read

Must read. There are actually 7 books connected in varying ways that culminates in this book. The order is Sam, ASBO, Final Winter, Housemates, Sea Sick, Ravage, and Savage. Each are stand alone but don’t miss a one. Probably my favorite set of books ever.
It revolves around zombies but in a way that you think, this may really happen one day.

Great story

Great story , the narration felt like i was listening to a tv show. The characters were well thought out and there is plenty of action throughout the whole book. The narrator did a great job with the voices . Each voice was distinct and interesting. They fit the characters and i could see them. Great book to add to your library.

Wonderful book with AMAZING performance

I feel like the other reviewers and I listened to different books. I freaking ADORED the sound effects, voices, music and production put into the book. When I bought the book, I was just looking forward to the continuation of the series. But the moment the music and voices started I got VERY excited, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
For example, there is a moment shared between two characters before something terrible happens. You know it’s going to happen, you know people are going to die, and it really hits home when you hear it happen with full effects. Hearing the sentence “the boat fired” is miles of difference that hearing “the boat fired”, followed by the sound of actual artillery fire.

Another winner

Savage is filled with action, zombies, heroism and faith. I am in awe of the strong characters and how well they work together. The storyline flows well and sets the plot perfectly. The narrator is perfect for this book I can close my eyes and watch it play out like a movie. The book is still creepy as hell. The only thing I was not fond of was the music introducing the characters as crazy as I am about sound effects.
I received this audio book for free at my request and I am leaving a review of my own volition.

why Iain just why????

I don't understand why people feel it is necessary to add unnecessary and poorly produced sound effects and music to the narration of a book. it never sounds good and it always the tracks from the story. who ever produced and or directed The narration of this story should be slapped by the author. I do not understand why Iain Wright allows such poor production and direction of his novels. while this one is merely irritating at least it's not completely ruined like his novel Extinction was by the horrible narrator. however if this persists I'm a stop listening to his books all together.

the music just doesn’t work

Beautifully narrated

A gripping story that is narrated with aplomb. Nigel plays all the characters in a believable manner and does not send any of the characters up.
Wonderfully told.

Loved it

Excellent book, must admit I am a fan of Iain Rob Wrights other books. Narrator slightly off at times, but did not affect the story line. Recommend reading, and would love to see more of the characters in a future book. Always a good sign when you want more!

No holiday on the British coast

Overall story was nice despite the slowburn from the start.
The sound effects and background music was, I’m sorry to say terrible.
I did like the story because the writer made some decisions with his characters which were different.

Zombies vs Humans vs Humans

First things first: I didn't realise until I was well into the book that this was the 3rd book in one series and the 7th in another. I much prefer to read a series in order and may well have skipped this if I'd known sooner. That being said, this can easily be read as a standalone novel and is a complete story in itself.

The story is well written with plenty of detail, loads of action and well developed characters. There is plenty going on and the pace is good. The trouble with zombie stories though that they will invariably be compared to The Walking Dead TV show and this is no exception, in that, as per usual the main conflict soon evolves into being not between humans and zombies but between different bands of humans. I'm sure I'm not alone in drawing comparisons between the book characters and those on the TV show. Personally I stopped watching The Walking Dead once Negan was introduced as I hate the psychotic, bullying megalomaniac types. Samuel in this book fits that mould and is a similar character to Negan, in my opinion.

Still an entertaining read though not really my preferred subject choice.

The Narrator, Nigel Peever, does an excellent job of bringing the characters to life, each having a unique voice and with plenty of emotional depth in the dialogue and general narration.

The real downside for me was the sound effects. I listen to audiobooks while driving a refrigerated van for work and as such I have the volume quite high. The "jingles" between chapters as well as some of the incidental music is absolutely ear-piercing in places and even some of the background sounds detract and distract from the story. While they were quite well done I feel the audiobook would have been better without the added sound effects.

I received a free copy of this audiobook either from the author or a promotion or giveaway and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

Hoped for a grittier ride

Firstly, I must say that Nigel does a fantastic job narrating the story; his characters are all individual and well defined with different accents and the background sound effects are very well done (and don’t detract from the story at all).
Unfortunately for me, whilst it was an enjoyable story, I had hoped it would be a little grittier and darker, as despite some gruesome instances, it seemed to have the feel of a easy-to-read adventure story rather than an intense gritty terror filled zombiefest!
Although this is the third book in the series, I haven’t read the first 2, and at no point was I confused; it reads well as a stand-alone book.
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

When narration goes wrong

Was so looking forward to the third book in this zombie trilogy.
But oh no whilst the story is good, if not a bit same oh same. The narration is totally wrong and the sound effects laughable.
Such a shame as the fist two books in the trilogy were fine in my humble opinion but the third? Sorry a poor panto.
Keep writing the good stuff Though Iain.

Who needs drama!

Enjoyed the first to audiobooks in this series, but sound effects and excessive use of accents ruined this one. It is an audiobook not a dramatisation. Found it really difficult to listen too.
