Publisher's Summary

Gabriel Garrett has faced many challenges.

The battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, the CIA, several years as a mercenary, and the end of the world among them. But now he faces a challenge none of his training, expertise, or combat experience have prepared him for - fatherhood.

With a new family and new responsibilities, Gabriel decides to leave Hollow Rock and start over in the growing city of Colorado Springs. It is here he believes he can finally leave behind the violence that has always followed him and begin a new chapter in his life. But to get there, he will have to cross the vastness of the American plains, and in a world where the dead walk the earth, no journey is ever easy.

When his caravan is ransacked, Gabriel, his stalwart friends Eric Riordan and Caleb Hicks, and his new family are forced to endure the dangers of the post-Outbreak world on their own. It is here they will face marauders, criminal organizations, corrupt government officials, starvation, and every other danger the wastelands can throw at them. To survive, they will have to rely on all their courage, resourcefulness, and will to fight.

And most importantly, they will have to rely on each other.

Marauders

This series started out amazing. It had a lot of zombie fun. This part of the series is mostly marauders and maybe 15 minutes of zombies. I don't think I'll continue this series. In my opinion the Mountain Man series is better.

great adventure

Awesome adventure of life on the road in a post apocalyptic world. This series keeps me on the edge of my seat always wanting more at the end. Why won't James Cook write faster? Thanks Mr Cook

Another good one!

Loving this series! Thought it couldn't get better but this author out does himself with each book! The narrarator does an awesome job as well. You get sucked in quickly and it hurts to pause or stop listening.

Time To Shoot This Zombie In The Head

What was once a pretty engaging zombie series is now just a generic rebuilding society tome. The characters are uneven in their development and in their likability. It seems like it has morphed into even more of a preachy, political, prepper book. If you want better world building stick to the first 4 in the series.

The narrator is ok, but I have heard him do a more competent job with other books.

OMG when does the next book come out!

A sensational ending to the series thus far, all of our beloved characters are on new and exciting adventures and the suspense has been built to begin the next chapter of their adventure teasing that Sgt. Caleb Hicks will be set on special mission to help the resistance and his former father in law fight against the ROC. Looking forward to the next chapter!
