Publisher's Summary

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions must overcome their differences and recover from their own scars to protect the thousands of survivors sheltered in their film studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. The heroes lead teams out to scavenge supplies, keep the peace within the walls of their home, and try to be the symbols the survivors so desperately need. For while the ex-humans walk the streets night and day, they are not the only threat left in the world, and the people of the Mount are not the only survivors left in Los Angeles. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power. And they are not heroes.

    this was a good telling of real life superheroes and how they would deal with a zombie like event.

    "An Odd Mix"

    I had read two other Peter Clines book, 14 & Fold. They were really very good and quite enjoyable. I decided to give the "EX" series a chance based on those experience - and it turned out well. It's an odd mix, super heroes and zombies, but Clines is good and he is able to ground a questionable premise into a compelling and entertaining story. So yeah, if you into this genre, it's difficult for me to imagine it getting better than this. Narration, great and if you have lived, or do live in or around the Los Angeles area, you'll enjoy his geography. I recommend this book.

    "Great for super hero and zombie fans alike!"

    If you love Superheroes or zombie apocalypse stories and can even do much as tolerate the other, you will really enjoy this book. The writing is tight, swift, and exciting. The narration is of the highest quality. This is a great series start.

    Story
    "Not a Terrible "Read""
    Would you try another book from Peter Clines and/or Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ?

    I decided I'm not really interested in the EX series after stopping before the end of Ex-Heroes. This book has a lot of great reviews, but it just wasn't for me.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Clines again?

    I'm not sure if I'd listen to any of Peter Clines' other books. I found his writing style a bit lacking in the environmental detail arena. In this novel, I felt like I would've been better off if I had an intimate knowledge of Hollywood and LA. A lot of the events taking place have all these streets and monuments referenced but nothing really gets into detail for the reader.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ?

    The narrators were good voice actors - however, I didn't enjoy having the mix of both of them acting side by side.


    Did Ex-Heroes inspire you to do anything?

    Not much inspiration. There were some clever parts, but nothing really made me want to press on other than hoping it would get better.

    "Zombie book to Try ***NOT*** !!!"
    What would have made Ex-Heroes better?

    Just not my genre. Not being a Zombie story fan to start and with high marks on reviews I gave it try, after 6 hours I just kept waiting for the drop and it never came, From the reviews of persons stating they were pleasantly surprised I dont see what. Blah Blah Blah same same old boring Zombie killing. I found it a complete 10 hours of wasted time. I usually will quit listening to a lousy book but stuck it out. I am the fool.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not a zombie book.


    What about Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s performance did you like?

    I thought they did a good job.


    Any additional comments?

    IF your not a Zombie fan this will just reassure you to continue that way. Blah Blah Blah same same old boring Zombie killing.

    "Ok"

    Didn't get interesting until close to the end of the book. But the reading is good, and it has God a solid back story for zombies.
