Great Series

My only issue with this part of the story is that there was not enough about Howie and his group. It was ok.

First disappointment

I am a huge fan of this series. I look forward to every book that comes out. This story just drug on and annoyed me. From a main character standpoint, it went nowhere. It was a filler book introducing unrealistically cruel characters while also introducing incredible new passive qualities to the characters that have to this point been pivotal. I stopped listening to the story out of shear irritation only to go back to it and be annoyed again. It was a disservice to sell this as a progression to the story line. It should have been a peripheral tale although it would still be bad at that. It may be enough to drive me away from the series.

Disappointed

My son and I are huge fans of this series. I loved all the other books in this series, but not this one. The story just drug on too slow, and never spent any time with Howie and his group. I felt like I was listening to a side story, and not a book from this series. I am left feeling like I am still waiting for the next book.

Where was Howie, Dave & the Gang?

Disappointed on many fronts - love this series, but not this installment. First, a little too much in politics - authors need to stay away from that , unless that is what he story is all about.
& totally unrealistic that a 16 year old is in charge of a community . Nope sorry - not buying it.
& the time frame moves too slow- when in hell are we going to get to where they are dealing with winter ?
19 books & it only covers 3 weeks. & in that time a man who has no military experience or really no experience in leadership or survivors like or combat , becomes the leader of a crew of young inexperienced & they become a mighty force in just a couple of days...........................................
In spite of all these flaws I do like the series because the characters are likable.

Another great addition

Once again RR Haywood captures your imagination in this edition. It's thevstory of what is going on in the fort while Howie and the team are away fighting the dead. I can't wait for the next one!!

wonderful as always.

Loved the new installment as I always do with this series. Mary is a great addition to the cast like a mix of Blinky and Cookie.

Pressure building, pressure unrelenting

Full disclosure - I LOVE this series.

The narrator is simply amazing with multiple characters and dozens of accents perfectly executed. He sounds as excited to read as I am to hear the book. Massive high energy action scenes to tender love scenes written and narrated with passion and sensitivity.
Only 1 book this time 😩
Spoiler alert.
Much as I loved this book, I did miss Howie and the team. Especially Cookie & Momo.

A big let down of a fine series so far

Another great performance, but the story is just getting too long and dull.

Also too many polarising characters as well. Tommy in this story is so over the top deplorable that his fate was flagged within minutes.

All in all this felt like a guide to misery. The end was obvious, the characters wooden and the whole situation felt preachy.

Poor show

Sad

Sad to hear what that Nick and Lilly are done. Really annoyed me alot. I have loved this book from day 1. The way you are portraying Nick is bad. Lilly is cool but a loser. Hope the next book is better. Tommy is a disgrace!!

WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 18.5!

This book was fun in the typical Undead fashion. Zombies (living challeged for you Reginals), a fun plot with memorable characters (the gypsy's) and all narated by a brilliant narrator. (Joe Jameson is honeslty what got me through this book) But this book didnt have 90% of what i love in this sieres. It didnt have Howie, Dave or any of the team, the people who make the books what they are. It didnt have the fight against the virus, something that puts these books apart from most other zombie books. And most of the book suddenly had this policitcally correct over tone that made this book a grind to get through. I dont understand the choices that were made in the writting of this. (Makes girlfiend of beloved fan chracter gay because she cant see that he leaves the fort to keep her safe???) Lilly is one of my favourite characters in this sieres, she is an absolute badass but is suddenly she's as thick as two planks of wood because she cant understand Nick leaves to keep her and her brother safe. And yes thank you R.R Hayword we understand racism is bad but to make the main antagonist of the this book a racist fat white bloke with no brain between his ears, is insulting to the characters in this book. All in all this should have been book 18.5. The thing that got me through this book was Joe Jameson, if not for his tallent this book would have been unfinishable.

Turning into teen pop

I have really enjoyed this series but feel like it’s losing it way and not sure if it should be an adult or teen book.

Possibly best written book

Although a different pace of book, I loved this. I love the writing style and the narration. I loved the new characters and, well.. just loved it. When I first realised we wouldn't be hearing about 'the boys' I was a little disappointed, but as the story unfolded, I was just wanting to know more and more. Only problem - having to wait for the next instalment :(

No one tells stories like R.R. Haywood

How do you keep a storytelling fresh and exciting after 22 books? Simple, you have the talent of R.R. Haywood. He immerses you so much into the world hes created that you experience all emotions. No matter who im listening to, they take a back seat as soon as Mr Haywood releases a new book.

Brilliant

Addicted to this series! Just as I think I can sum up each twist, another little one pops up, and I can’t quite grasp the end of the thread. I can see it, but can’t grasp what slots in the story where, sorry not explained very well. Kudos, very well thought out and written.
Can’t wait for the next instalment.
