Adrian Ring and evil don't get along. When he can't be corrupted, turned, or forced to give up, evil will target those around him, including the family he had thought was dead.

In Book Six of Adrian's Undead Diary, no one near Adrian is safe. Many will make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that he can keep his loved ones protected at any cost, and rebuild a new, better world. In the Arms of Family also follows Kevin and Michelle as their stories entwine and bring them ever closer to the horrors that surround Adrian across the vast Atlantic Ocean. How long can they survive before the dead finish what they came to do?

    "HURRY UP BOOK #7!"

    If the next book in this series isn't out on Audible soon I will be forced... gasp... to READ it. It's THAT good. It's taking all of my self control not to "read' the next book in this series. These are THE best book about the apocalypse I have read. I can't get enough of them.

    "FABULOUS ADDITION TO THE SERIES!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I totally would recommend this whole series!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That Adrian found his family! It was about time he got a break!


    Which character – as performed by James Foster – was your favorite?

    Adrian of course!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It definitely was!!!


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I ate about this book is that it is over now and I do not have audible credits to buy the last 2! *Throwing a fit* LOL I guess I will have to wait!

    Super awesome addition to the series, we are getting closer and closer to what I suspect is going to be a final battle of sorts...I am super happy for Adrian that he was able to find some of his family, it was about time he got a little break...I am thrilled that I discovered this series and cant wait to finish it, even though I am going to have to for a bit...life is so unfair sometimes! lol

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

    "Five Star Review Across the Board."

    Chris Philbrook rocks. I LOVE this series of books, it ranks in my top five favorite zombie genre of all time.

    The latest installment takes you further down the 'rabbit hole'. Adrian and friends feel like family at this point. It's good stuff and I can't wait for the next book to come out on Audible.

    "Keeps Getting Better"

    Adrian's UnDead Diary-is one of the best series of books I've had the privilege of listening to. The author and narrator are a sublime combination. I feel emotionally vested in the lives of the characters. Each time Otis, the cat, is mentioned I can't help myself, I smile. The author, Chris Philbrook has penned intriguing characters. The narrator, James Foster brings the characters to life. Now the waiting game begins...I must wait for the release of Trinity (Adrian's Undead Diary Book 7) in audio format.

    Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese

    "Another great entry"

    I can't say enough good things about this series. Adrian, Abby, Gilbert, Patty - now Michelle, Kevin and Hal are there too - the family is getting pretty big.
    Enjoy the book!

    "Worth it"

    This is the sixth book in the Adrian's Undead Diary series. You will need to have read the others to enjoy this one. If you have read into the series this far, keep reading! You won't be disappointed. This book has the journal format of the other books as well as vignettes like those featured in the last book. This book still has action and survival, but as the series progresses, each book really settles into character and story development. These are not only gory zombie fare. The story is really getting interesting. Oh the feels!!

    I have listened to this entire series (more than once). I have loved every book. The story line is great. Each book has small daily plots as well as an overarching plot making each book a complex mixture of ideas and emotions. The character development is fantastic. It is the apocalypse story that has a little something for everyone. Gun porn - check. Tactical discussion - check. Actual daily survival - check. Emotional and personal interactions - check. Zombie killing - check. Funny stuff - check. NotTooOverTheTop spiritual elements - check. you get the idea.

    This book and the rest of the series is all good stuff. Seriously.

    James Foster is great. Perfect.

    "Such a twist"
    What made the experience of listening to In the Arms of Family the most enjoyable?

    One part I really liked about this book is the new characters he introduces you to here, and how things take parts of the other books and ties them together, but also generating more twists and turns in future books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of this book is just when you think you know what happens this book changes things. It does a great job of setting up plot twists that get carried out in some of the other books.

    "already mourning that it will end..."

    I know it has to, but dang! The narration is great, and Adrian's mix of rapid humor and despair are a perfect balance.
