Publisher's Summary

For Michael Roberts it was an ordinary day until the sirens began to blare. Then the evacuation order came through.

The first step outside, he knew his world would never be the same. The city was in ruins. The people were people no more... changed into ravenous walking evil.    

Michael's true terror was about to begin....

A refreshing perspective on the zombie apocalypse

A surprisingly fresh take on the ZomPoc genre!

This book was told first person, present tense, and follows a man through 24 hours after the zombie apocalypse starts. He's bitten early on, and is fighting the change throughout, and the internal struggle he goes through was a real treat to witness.

I usually don't care for zombie stories. There's just too many of them, and they all run together and are largely boring to me. But this one stood out with the cool perspective, the heart wrenching moments as our hero (?) is fighting back the urge building within him.

The change in the narrative when the change would start to try and overcome him was startling and chilling, a thrill to read. And the ending rips your guts out and slaps you with them.

If you're a zombie fan, this is certainly for you. If you're not, like me, you may find a gem in the genre. Take a peak, and bring some tissues. This one was really good.

awesome

Always been a fan of S. W. narrations, now a fan of his writing. gripping, edge of seat and can't put down this story. The author's wit, grip on emotional strings and ability to truly tell a great story shins through in this one.
Would love to read listen to more in this world.

S.W. Salzman is an excellent narrator, and has done a great job with writing this one. He has put himself into the characters. The emotions are so real you can feel them. I highly recommend you checking this one out.

intense

Salzman brought the first 24 hours of the zpoc to life in an intense and dramatic way. The passion he narrates this story with makes it obvious he wrote the characters as if he was living it.

Highly recommend this book for any fans of the zpoc.

Different Post-Apocalyptic

This is a totally different take on zombies it is about a man Michael who is fighting becoming one of the infected with the help of a doctor and family and how it affects him mentally. Also good expressive narration as narrator becomes author and a lot of action. Recommend if you enjoy zombie books. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. THANK YOU
