Publisher's Summary

Greed, terrorism, and simple bad luck conspire to bring mankind to its knees as a viral infection spreads out of control, reducing those infected to undead horrors that feed upon the rest.

It's a time of misery and death for most, however there are some who are lucky, some who are ruthless, and some who are just too damned tough to go down without a fight. This is their story.

Worst writing and VO in HISTORY

The writing was subpar and the author tries to warn you ahead of time that the book is not for the faint of heart. What Peter should have said is, I will write women and black characters with as much misogyny and verbal black face as possible and pass it off as keeping it "real". Do not waste your time or money. This book will most definitely be returned. And the Voice Actor should be ashamed, using AAVE--trying to "blacken" your voice, you come off as a freaking minstrel show

Boring & don’t like the way some of U.S. Military is portrayed

I just couldn’t go far with this story. Our military would never turn into what this author suggests - even in an apocolypse. There would be a few of course, but they would be put down by other soldiers.

Not for me

I heard your prelude and have to admit I do not enjoy the automatic whore placement of the woman and the disgusting behavior of the army. YES you did warn me, but I did not think it would be that bad.....it was. I cannot find this book interesting as I spend most of my time crinkling my nose i distaste. Just not for me, this is more a mans book IMO

dont get me wrong, i love these books, but...

for some reason, in the third book of this box set, there is a random chapter from book 2(a complete 30 minutes, just skil over the entire chapter of audible 104) that is from Ram's POV, from when he is taken hostage by the blacks. It does not belong there at ALL, i am curious if this was just a production error for this box set, or if the writer put that chapter in on purpose? is the third book when purchased individually still like that?
it literally does nothing but get our hopes up, and despite the great story of the 3rd book, my mind is still having problems with chapter 104 even being there. its kind of hard to get past.

Entertaining and thoughtful

If you like this gents it’s a good listen. Would have given 5 stars but the audio edit had some annoying, and one not unsubstantial, mistakes.

2020 during the quarantine.

reading this for the second time. made me laugh when sarah is at the store and gets to the toilet paper isle and its all gone. that is great writing and imagination. this series and the z series that fallows are action packed, and fun reads. if your a fan of the walking dead or zombies in general, you will love these books. main characters are never safe, and neither are the villains.

absolutely dreadful, then it gets worse

First volume was bad, but I listened to it. Second volume stars a 6 year-old kid and her "talking" stuffed zebra (a total genius as it turns out). I just couldn't take it any more... save yourself! Do NOT buy this!

Horrible Second Book

The first book was ok however the second book is horrible. There is a six year old girl giving advice to adults taking about things she couldn’t possibly have knowledge about. I think I paid for this one.

Disapointed

I wanted this set to be great, unfortunately the authors idea of good guys and bad is very skewed, all bad guys are super geniuses who instinctively know what the other characters will do and the good guys are blundering idiots, even the highly trained DEA/Military guy was crazy dumb, had to stop listening. The production was quite bad also, they have mixed chapters from the 1st book with the later ones which made for a confusing listen and chunks of text speech are just missing. Really wanted to love it, just couldn't.

Don't listen to

The way the army is viewed through this book is disgusting and women in this book basically can't do anything except rely on other people and the slavery side of things is even disgusting the only reason I managed to get through as much as I did did is because of the narrator he was very good

Avoid

Dire. Dreadfully written, narrated and thought up. Don’t waste a credit. Badly covers every “ism” there is.

Loved the characters grow into people

Brilliantly written plot that came alive with great characters that grow and came alive and become increasingly interlinked and the plot twists and turns it is not politically correct and appears anti feminist but it's not and the stars are female

Good start but fizzled out by book three

Book one was great, book 2 had some nice story lines and ideas like the little girl, but couldn’t finish book three.
Characters get less and less agency as the story line progresses and things just happen to them.

Not predictable

Enjoyed this especially as it was written (jn my opinion,) a realist. The only currency was firepower and a strong will to survive. The only thing with all these stories is that it always appears that the bad guys have all the sweets and the power but that may well be what would happen if Order fell. Kept me entertained right to the end as I had no idea how it would conclude.

chillibean or jillybean?

This series is absolutely fantastic, I love it and I would never in 100 years believe a toy zebra and a 7 year old girl would be my favourite characters in any circumstances

Great but a couple issues.

Loved the book and story, just noticed there were a few times where there is a cut and an old chapter repeats or a break in story as well as a missing chunk which was annoying.
