Publisher's Summary

The explosive best-selling sequel to the landmark horror-thriller, Existential. A must-listen for science fiction and horror fans alike, Undead is a roller coaster ride of action and terror!

Max Ahlgren thought the nightmare he had endured in Alaska was over. He was wrong. 

Consumed with finding those responsible for the death of his family 10 years earlier, Max is approached by Juno Rey, a seductive CIA agent with a tantalizing offer - information on the killers in exchange for Max's help on a top-secret mission. The target: a covert biomedical research facility located deep in North Korea, where scientists are attempting to reverse engineer the alien life-form discovered in Alaska. 

An elite team of CIA operatives accompanies him, but even their advanced weapons cannot ensure survival against the murderous abominations created at the facility. Max must decide who he can trust as the devastating secret of their mission unravels. To unlock the secrets of his past, Max must again face his nightmares as he fights to save humanity from an unearthly terror. 

Undead is a cocktail of horror, science fiction, and thrilling military action. Fast-paced, terrifying, and visceral, it contains intense scenes of graphic violence and horror. Listener discretion is advised.

Very thrilling and suspenseful!!

Just the like his last book, I really enjoyed this author's ability to capture such detail and goriness. He has a great talent of making you feel as though you're right there being part of the action!! I thought the story evolved smoothly and how the intensity just kept building and building. I was once again blown away by the detailed knowledge displayed in this work, from the weaponry, down to the bullets, gear, and armor. Impressive! I don't want to give away any spoiler alerts here, but the ending I thought was just genius!! I did not see that coming. Looking forward to more from this series!

Great Series

I'm usually hesitant to start books with lots of military aspects and gunplay, because the authors usually get so much wrong, but this guy is the real deal. All the tactics are sound, the weapon choices and use are (mostly) on-point, and it's a fun mix of action and sci-fi. I'm really diggin this series so far.

Decent Continuation from First Book

The plot of this book didn't capture me as much as the first one, but none the less it was an enjoyable followup from the first book.

Good action but...

The action was good and narrating was awesome but the dialogue was way too much especially at the end. The bad dream flashback sequences slowed the story down and made it seem like the author was trying to fill up space.
It was still a good book but not as good as first one.

Too predictable

The entire story comes off as an almost repeat of Book 1, except for different characters. The series story arc really is not moved forward that much and mostly moves in a predictable lateral movement. The protagonist, Max, while portrayed as a military-hardened squad leader loses almost all of that mystique what with his continued tendency to play lapdog to any attractive female who feigns interest in him.

Jeffrey Kafer narration was well done but was hindered by what seemed like a not too distant echo of the first book.

I'll not continue this series.
