Publisher's Summary

A Message from The Author

Writing The Undead is a humbling experience. I am eternally grateful to the readers and listeners for the incredible support you always show.

Dan Morgan superbly narrated Parts 1 to 10, but unfortunately he was not able to continue. To my delight, the wonderfully talented Joe Jameson has now taken the series on. His range and skills are superb.

I am aware of the feedback about the voice of one of my characters, Dave. If this change has upset your listening experience then I can only apologise, but both Joe and I, and everyone at Audible, have listened to the points you made and take them very seriously. It is a wonderful thing to have such responsive fans, so willing to listen and work to make it better, plus the interactive nature of the series means you the listener can speak out and say what you like and don't like, otherwise how would we know?

We've got some cracking days ahead of us. Some real stonking rip-roaring storylines to come and both Joe and I can only hope you'll stay with us on this journey.

Take care,

RR Haywood.

Howie and Marcy fight their way back into the fort to rescue Lani, only to find her on a killing spree. Her body made weak by the incessant and relentless purge of the Undead, and believing Howie has betrayed her with Marcy, she now seeks to destroy him and all he loves.

With tensions running high, Maddox and his crews watch on while Howie tries to reason with the woman he thought he loved. She leads him to the armoury, where they are together and alone. She holds a grenade in her hand, ready to detonate.

The new voice

I do not like the new reader at all and came really close to stop listening to the series.

not my favorite

the story took a very dark turn and it just didn't feel right. the characters seemed completely different, not the ones we've come to know and love.

A bit darker than usual

Lots of twists and a bit more dark than I am use to. Narration was superb with the exception of Dave's voice. I almost stopped listening at the end as it was getting a bit too depressing. It recovered a little at the end. I am going to listen to one more novel before giving up on the series. Life is depressing enough as it is. Zombie novels are not suppose to be that depressing.

Best Zombie series yet!

What did you love best about The Undead, Part 12?

How the author was so descriptive, he made it feel like you were right there with the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact it was about a zombie apocalypse.

What does Joe Jameson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings life to the story by changing his voice to each character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was!

I love Howie, Dave and the gang

Any additional comments?

Best series ever. I am in love with the characters. They seem so real to me. Haywood is an excellent story teller and keeps my attention from the first sentence to the last. Great narration too.

Another outstanding installment!

Riveting from beginning to end. The series just gets better and better. Every time you think you have this story figured out, there is a curve ball to keep you guessing. The characters are strong and well written. A wonderful romp through post apocalypse England that will have you cheering.

eh, just ok

the story is getting old. lots of the same type of action as previous books. wonder if it will ever end? or does the author like milking his fans for more money to buy more books? And the little kid with gregory is absolutely ridiculous. he's so damn annoying and needs to be omitted from this story, he sucks.

Narrator is getting better

I'm don't know whether I'm anxious to get this series done because it's kind of dragging out or anxious because I'll loose my friends. The detail is great on some levels and I need to fast forward on others. Don't want to give out spoilers, but this book (day) was tough. Didn't like where it went or ended, at all. I'm intrigued by the aspect of finding out more about the origins of the virus. Except, for the annoying little boy, Joe does pretty well on the new characters. I am enjoying the English pronunciation of words like vitamins. The voice of Dave still bothers me.

Excellent addition

Would you listen to The Undead, Part 12 again? Why?

I would listen to them all again, so yes. The whole shift in Lanis personality was very well written and narrated.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Again any scene with Meredith and Howie, but especially the bit where she and Howie face Lani

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

When Howie finally drops at the munitions centre. The loyalty of the team. I can understand how they just want to protect him from harm. As always the interaction between Blowers and Cookie

honestly

I really enjoyed upto book 14 but to be honest I struggled with this one and book 15.
looking like the start of a downward spiral if last 2 books are anything to go buy coming from a avid fan bit disappointed.
the story just seams to be going all over the place howie loosing it in day 15 then ohh he can see in future and speak to momo in dream form and what is with the kid (freak) with gregori and why would a killer all of A sudden put up with a kid.
day 15 "he is coming" day 16 not mentioned at all.
ohh and clarance is OK killing kids now when he was adamant that he was a soldier in a past book and wouldn't ever do it the story is getting repetitive n off.

Still missing Dan

I decided to give this next book with out Dan a go. Mainly because others had said that by the end of this book they were more comfortable with the new narrator. To some extent that may be true, however I'd did not particularly enjoy the story. It's not often I fast forward through parts of books I've not read before - but I did this one. Sometimes it's the dialogue- would someone writing a diary REALLY write as if they were relating something to a listener? I don't think so. Sometimes it the complete change of characters behaviours and, the last section in the fort wtf????
However I will try the last book in this first lot of Joe's, I hope the females don't still sound like effeminate men and Dave starts to sound more like the focused but clever man he is. Perhaps Joe could listen to one of the book narrated by Dan Morgan? All in all worse than part 11 but I've committed to hearing the next one - which will be the decider for me.

Excellent

Very fast paced, as usual for Mr Haywoods books. Best Zombie series to read. Highly addictive, recommend starting with the first book.
This is one series that needs listening to.

Fab story, awful delivery 😞

Without wanting to sound like a stuck record, I only discovered this series a few months ago, and absolutely loved it !
Books 1-10 are just sublime, and that stands for the story line of book 11 too, but as many before me, I just can’t abide Joe Jameson’s delivery, maybe if he’d narrated them all, I could have lived with it, but now Dave is portrayed as a Yorkshire half wit and Lahni and Paula have become more than ridiculous
I’m at a loss, got to keep listening to hear the story out, but massively disappointed, not Joes fault, but just not the same :-((((

What has happened to this great series?

Books 1-10 have been some of the best Zombie books I've listened to on the same level as Mark Tufo's Zombie fallout but Some chapters in book 12 have been so pointless and painfully unbearable to listen to (Howie dreaming) I had to skip them.

New narrator is great

Love this series and once I got through the change of narrator It just gets better and better.

I first read extracted and this led to me wanting to read more of me haywoods books.

The ability to capture human nature at its best and worst and then tell it so well is captivating.

Keep it up. Just hurry as I’m slowly getting to the end of all previously written books.

Lazy and badly thought out.

The writing is getting lazy and derivative. Pity as it had such good potential.
Some good moments but mainly self indulgent writing.
