Publisher's Summary

It takes political intrigue - and plenty of tanks - to defeat zombies. 

Escaped zombies from behind the wall have swept across the northeast, their path marked by havoc and death. Into this nightmare world are thrust several unlikely heroes. 

A full-time national guard soldier leads his company of tanks on a harrowing journey towards the Appalachian Defensive Line. 

A small group of refugees fight for their own survival and end up facing demons of a different sort. 

A hero from the last zombie war must fight against the first invasion of the continental United States in over 200 years. 

Retired CIA operative Asher Hawke, AKA the Kestrel, will stop at nothing to eliminate the zombie threat - and save the nation that he's dedicated his life to protect.

Really you chose that endding type

I had alot of the same problem I had with previous books has there is no warning to violent sexcual content that really disgusted me in the book that you should give it in the summary or say something like will be in the book. The secound problem was over reaction outer nations acted in that world, and my last was the slightly open endding type has doesn't slove the zombie but leaves it open to spread threw the world randomly.

Epic Conclusion

What an epic conclusion to this unique zombie story! Since this genre has become so popular, it is often hard to find books that have that little something special and unique. Brian Parker has definitely done that with this series.

After one zombie war, the United States is again facing decimation from the zombie hordes. Everyone thought that the zombies had been contained behind a wall surrounding Washington, DC. Then, a nuclear attack was supposed to have taken care of them. However, soon zombies start appearing in Philadelphia and other areas. Some have even made it to the Gulf of Mexico by water. Is there anything that can stop them?

This book follows several paths and alternate viewpoints of the fight against the zombies. A National Guard unit from New York is at the forefront of the fight and the story follows one of the leaders as they try to destroy the horde. Another group of survivors has been recruited to fight and the book details two as they fight to reach the man's daughter.

Then, we have retired CIA Operative Asher Hawke, AKA the Kestrel, as he attempts to find and kill the Master of the Zombies and revenge the deaths of those he loved.

There is plenty of zombie killing action, the obligatory villains (with graphic torture descriptions) and more as these characters try to save the world as they know it. I shed a few tears along the way as beloved characters met their untimely deaths.

The narrator, Andrew Wehrlen, did a great job and added a lot to my enjoyment of this book and the whole series. I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book by the author/publisher/narrator and chose to review it.

A solid finish

I thought it was a very good conclusion to the series.

The climax of the story was a bit fast for my taste, but to be honest, I cannot think of any other means at which it could have played out without harming the story and that is the only critical thing I can say about the story. It may also be related to that I may have missed it, and I truly think I did; as my son ran up and distracted me, but I feel as if the Master’s identity was alluded to but I couldn’t make the connection out.

Somehow I missed book 2! I enjoyed this book!It starts with Zombies getting thru the barriers and taking over everything on their way to Philly. Aiming to special ones there are hopes of getting to the Master and wiping out the tide. People are lost,some are found.It is very good.Narration by Andrew B Wehrlen is exceptional.I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great book!

It seems like that is the last book in the series, but I hope not. The series is a bit different in that the zombies don't immediately take over the whole world as in so many books. I think this allowed for some more interesting scenarios. Great stuff!

Perfect ending to the series

If you could sum up this book in three words, what would they be?
-Only 2 come to mind, perfect ending.

What other book might you compare this book to and why?
-Anything by Nicholas Sansbury Smith. Parker's story telling is very similar to Smith's.

Who was your overall favorite character and why?
-Asher.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
-Yes, but it took a few sittings. I did finish it in a day and a half though.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
-Yes! But they need to start with book 1. Because it's a great series.

Have you listened to any of Andrew B. Wehrlen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
-Yes, the first 2 books in this trilogy. He's great in all 3. I would love to listen to him again.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
-I may have gotten a little teary eyed there at the end.

Would you listen to this book again? Why?
-Yes, but after a year or so. Because it's a really good book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of this book?
-Asher going against the Leader.

Any additional comments?
-I hate to see the series end.

Loved it!! Was sad for it too end

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary honest review. I



Now, once again this book Sever is goldmine. It summed up all the characters and still provided much gore and blood but not too much. Again not a fan of cussing and swearing but considering the circumstances I might have too. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Decent wrap up of trilogy

I liked that the zombies are such a problem and there’s 3 kinds now, with hive-like communication and control. The US army isn’t ready for this! What a mess! Ash is still the main focus but we also get some new viewpoints like Maria and the people she ends up fighting with on the front lines.

Once again, the ladies are romantic interests and for the most part need protection and reassurance. For the series, the ladies are pretty interchangeable. Ash hooks up with his neighbor, Rachel, who is recently divorced. He really didn’t like her in the previous book and doesn’t seem to like her in this one until they wind up drunk in bed together. Tis ridiculous. Anyway, she gets fridged and that spurs Ash on to great heroics (which is pretty cliche).

I did like Ash’s big hunt and final personal battle. They have a nifty cure for being bitten now. Sometimes it’s called a vaccine and sometimes anti-venom, etc. My inner biologist cringes at the lack of precision or at least consistency in medical terms. 4/5 stars

Narration: Andrew B. Wehrlen’s pacing is still a little slow. Words are clear. The women sound like women for the most part. Good voice for Ash. Maria’s Cubano accent came and went and wasn’t very good. A few mispronounced words like ‘lithe’. No tech issues. 4/5 stars

I received a free copy of this book. My opinions are 100% my own.

I was shocked at the turn of events Asher had to deal with, and what happened to Sean and Marie left me speachless! Its hard to believe its over, This has been an amazing series and I hope to read many more books by Brian Parker.

You will never be forgotten.

The final conclusion to the Brian Parker zombie trilogy, again read by Andrew B.Wahrlen.
The zombies had escaped beyond the wall and were being marshalled by the strange and competent firsts, including the Leader and the Master of the Chosen. With nothing seemingly able to stop them, and with their newly acquired ability to travel through water, the hordes are increasing and expanding rapidly across the Americas whilst the rest of the world now deliberately shuns the continent.

As in the previous books, the action moves between different locations and individuals, some new and some met before, as they face up to their futures, probable deaths, their consciences and the loss of loved ones. Very well written and perfectly performed, fast paced and innovative, this is a book for every zombie genre reader
