Publisher's Summary

"All of us try to cheat death. I was just better prepared to do it than most folks."In the years since the wave of living death swept the globe, St George and his fellow heroes haven't just kept Los Angeles' last humans alive - they've created a real community, a bustling town that's spreading beyond its original walls and swelling with new refugees. But now one of the heroes, perhaps the most powerful among them, seems to be losing his mind. The implacable enemy known as Legion has found terrifying new ways of using zombies as pawns in his attacks. And outside the Mount, something ancient and monstrous is hell-bent on revenge.As Peter Clines weaves these elements together in yet another masterful, shocking climax, St. George, Stealth, Captain Freedom, and the rest of the heroes find that even in a city overrun by millions of ex-humans... there's more than one way to come back from the dead.

Very Fun and Involving

I am now officially an aficionado of this series. I love urban fantasies and this has that wonderful blend of fantasy and reality mixed with actual environs of Los Angeles. I live in LA and I got a kick out of imagining the streets and parts of the city in this post-zombie/apocalypse.
Veering into the realm of demons and sorcery took getting used to, but all the super heroes were so well-defined that even with all the magic, otherworldly things, it was believable. Besides I really enjoy the comic book (excuse me, it's graphic novel, thank you) style and especially the use of each chapter "then and now".
Excellent group narration with the stand-out of Jay Snyder, who I am assuming was the main narrator.
Loved the excellent writing of small details of what each Ex looks like and a mention of who they had been when alive. I also loved the zombie/Ex behaviors like the teeth chattering and the movements.
Overall, a really terrific series.

Great it would be an awesome movie adaptation. Each book is equally good. The performance is as good as the story as well.

Two Amazing side stories really prop the book up

Maxwell Hale, perhaps the most interesting character in the series has returned, accompanied by the Reaver-lord, Cairax Murrain. I was getting quite fed up of the Stealth & St George show, so Hale was a very welcome change of pace. I actually enjoyed his back story more than I did the central narrative.

There is also a brand new character thrown into the mix and her introduction chapter is nothing short of amazing.

Together these two characters make the book something really special for me - I've read it at least 3 times already. I'm impressed that Clines has managed to keep this trope running for so long while keeping each book fresh.

I do recommend.

good but...

if your hoping the story continues with smashing and huge battles you might be disappointed. it picks up in the middle of the book still a great series to listen to while at work. on to book 4!..review you later.

Another great sequel!

Loved it, as usual for this series. The connection to the other books is very nice. Some favorite moments were Madeline's story arc, meeting Karen, and how they took down the big bad this time. the narrators did well this time but there felt like some streamlining of some voices this time around; Berry just doesn't sound the same in this book as the last book, and there is not too much difference between Daniel (Cerberus) and Stealth. However, I wholly enjoyed the book.

Totally enjoyable !!! But now I'm finished

Zombies, superheroes, an evil invincible demon! What's not to love!
However- I read this one out of sequence with #4. It didn't matter to the story much, but now I'm totally out of Ex-Heroes to listen to!
Moving on to some of Cline's other works- maybe "The Fold"!!!

favorite of the series

The internal described epic fight scene with the demon caused total imaginative cerebral immersion and raised the bar miles higher than I previously thought possible. if you don't do anything else this year read and listen to this book! PERFECT
