Publisher's Summary

Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies.

A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected. Even death can’t stop the virus - its victims become frightening and deadly cannibals. Scattered across the world, embattled groups have persevered. For some, surviving is the pinnacle of achievement. Others hoard goods and weapons. And still others leverage power over the remnants of humanity in the form of a mysterious cure for Morningstar. For the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure goes on....

    "Great job!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Survivors the most enjoyable?

    So the trilogy comes to a long anticipated end. Thank you too the family and friends of Z.A. Recht for contributing to the continuation of the story and finally ending a trilogy that is sure to be a cult classic. Brannan's writing style is similar to Recht.

    I am not going to post any spoilers but just say the book IS as good as the other two. The only downfall is the ending, which I believe could have used a little more time on since there will not a forth installment to follow the vaccines progress.


    Which character – as performed by Oliver Wyman – was your favorite?

    General Sherman, and Dr. Demilio


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

    Oh yes!!!

    Story
    "Ok but NOT as good as 1 & 2 - shame really."

    Well, I was SO excited to see the final book available despite Z.A. Recht's untimely death. I thought for sure the family or publisher (or whomever decided) would surely have chosen an author to do the series justice. Boy was I wrong. The first part of book 3 is great and obviously leading up to something. Then Mr. "Brannan" takes over. I'm sure he's a good author but Recht had great insight into the military workings and lingo. It seems the "new" author had to do some research and clearly fell short. It just seemed as if the last part of the book tried to be a quick "resolve" but there was NO resolution, only a continuation of the story which led me wanting more. I don't want to spoil anything but it was full of nonsensical actions that the other two books would have never included. For instance the guy going out to wander around after he should have been monitored for quite some time just to make certain he was "safe". Then there's the group of survivors who have made such an epic heroic journey in the first two books - now they talk too loudly or make huge fires that result in their death. They would have never made those mistakes by Z.A.'s "pen". Another example is the sheriff who was full of common sense toughness is now suddenly super GI Joe (though never being in the military) instead of a down home hero who gets the bad guys with his experience, common sense & wit. Mason, the hero in the past is nothing more than a means to an end in this book. I felt like the story was left hanging and he could have done so much more. I'm really disappointed and had the first two books not been so good I would have given it a 2 star instead of a 3. The narrator was great as usual though some of this spanish american accents could use a little work. It's a Shame really. RIP Z.A Recht your stories will be missed!!!

    "This was a good story, all 3 parts"

    I nod the complete story, and it was very well read. I would strongly recommend this story to anyone who may be interested in zombie type books.

    "Few Lulls in Action!"

    I was apprehensive at the start of the full series but, by the time I made it 1/3 way into the 1st book, I was hooked! Survivors fulfilled a great ending & I caught myself fully involved knowing most characters personalities hitting both highs & lows as it rampaged in action to the end! My 1st "Zombie" books & I was surprised in fully enjoying all 3 books in the series but the best was saved for last!

    "Good read but disappointing too"

    Great listen until the very end. I was disappointed. I was looking for a happier ending or at least a quick overview into the future.

    Story
    "Sad to see it end this way ..."

    The story was okay ... the ending had a lot of huge holes in it I could drive my SUV through it. It just did not make any sense at all! I won't spoil it but I'm glad it was at the end because after I read it I really didn't want to go any further. The performance of the narrator was great, as always. The editing of the audiobook was not very good at all. There were many repeats, mid-sentence cut outs, among other issues. I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this and honestly feel cheated out of the credit I spent to get it.
