Publisher's Summary

For Cade Grayson, father, husband, and former Delta Force operator, life has changed drastically over the course of 48 hours. He's watched the dead inexplicably return to life before his very eyes. He's lost many people near and dear to him, most dying unfathomably horrible deaths at the hands of the dead who have seemingly overnight taken over the big metropolis - their numbers and hunger for human flesh growing exponentially with each passing hour.

After having been forced to kill his reanimated neighbors in self-defense and then surviving the perilous overland journey from his home in Portland, Oregon, Cade finds temporary refuge inside the wire of a Special Forces garrison on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, Utah.

But his stay is short and he decides to strike out alone, resuming the search for his missing wife, Brook, and 11-year-old daughter, Raven, the only way he knows how - with a laser-like focus and full speed ahead.

So in the early morning hours on day four of what might be the United States and perhaps the entire globe's extinction-level event, he slips out Camp Williams' back gate riding a specially modified off-road motorcycle.

Armed and resupplied and with only a satellite phone connecting him to the crumbling world, Cade soldiers on eastbound - locked and loaded - with Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, his small family's last known whereabouts, dead set in his sights.

Meanwhile, 400 miles away in Colorado Springs, Colorado - the new capital of the United States, President-by-succession Valerie Clay works round the clock with what's left of the military to gather together the resources and scientific know-how necessary to stop the Omega Virus' rapid spread and, starting with Colorado Springs, rid the country of the multitudes of walking dead.

Will the 1900 miles and the millions of dead in Cade's path succeed in keeping him separated from his family?

Will mankind find a foothold against the dead and turn the tide of war?

Cade Grayson, locked and loaded, is determined to find out.

Entertaining With Dark Twist

Performance was good and queued puncutions and emtions well.

The writing was great. It entertained without leaving gaps in the story as some post-apocalyptic books do at times. The zombies range from senior citizens to premature babies in exciting scenarios. Great Listen

Awesome!!!

Shawn Chesser has the ability to put the listener into a realistic world of loyalty and tragedy. Revenge is best served cold in his post apocolyptic thriller.

No holds barred zombie action.

What made the experience of listening to Soldier On the most enjoyable?

The writer is not the most eloquent , but he does make it realistic from a no man, woman or child is safe from the indiscriminate zombies perspective. There where things that happened that actually made you think of vulnerability is a weakness in a zombie apocalypse. Which is pretty true given the circumstances.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Soldier On?

The book does not read like that. Its a chain reaction of events that develop the characters.

What about Chris Patton’s performance did you like?

He sounds young enough to pass the youth in the story but can man up to.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No spoilers but the series does grow on you.

Any additional comments?

Can the team finish the audible series. I am eating it like candy. I particularly like the American pop culture references that I actually had to look up for clarity.

Builds on the first. An improvement overall, looking forward to the third in the series.
