Publisher's Summary

Machinery Technician Third Class Eric Hagen of the US Coast Guard abandons his post out of Jacksonville, Florida, after his whole world is transformed. The streets are teeming with crazed people, possessed by an insatiable appetite for human flesh. He soon learns that these manic people are not what they appear - they are undead. Traveling north in a post-apocalyptic world, Eric leads a team of four to Baltimore, Maryland, in search of his family, and in the process forms a family of his own. The cold winter months provide some relief from the undead, but Eric soon realizes that dangers from within his newly-formed family are just as deadly as the perils outside.

I see an emerging author

Jason is gonna take you on a trip to zombieland. This story has many points on it. Most important for me was how unexpectedly everything seems to happen, every twist is a surprise! If you are weak on your heart this book is not for you. If it gets you, get your favourite beverage and your sofa. Or a long drive.

Relatable characters, I liked the plot twists, and being a foreigner to English myself I found it really easy to listen. Both merits to the author and narrator. The narrator's reading style is clean, nice clean voice also.

On the other side I would have liked more depth into the main characters.

Mind blowing

I really enjoyed the storyline and the unexpected twist, I did not see it coming. The book pulled me in right from the beginning and held my attention right to the end.

Excellent Zombie Action!

I started this book Friday night around 6 pm. Today is Saturday 7pm. This sgould tell you how hard it was to put down.
The author has the ability to get his readers interacting with the characters. I caught myself talking to them and wanting to give a smack a character. Almost immediately you find yourself cheering, grieving and laughing with the characters.
The narrator does a great job with the narration. The characters are distinct and have their own personalities. The narrator easily makes the reader feel as if they aren't just observers but part of the action.
Purchase this book and you will enjoy it.

A light and fast read for mature audiences only

The audio book format suits this fast paced and unrelenting story of survival. May be inappropriate for younger listeners. The narrator did a lot to capture the urgency of the moment, as well as differentiate between the characters.

Good story, quite riveting!

Great storyline, had me glued. Had a few inconsistencies but otherwise fantastic. A very intense, gritty story of survival and how human beings can come together in a time of need. I look forward to Jason's future work.

No. He did a wonderful job with this book.I enjoyed his narration.

Any additional comments?

Winter’s Salvation By Jason Deyo
Feb 2 2017

I actually had the audio book of this, but it is not listed here on Goodreads.
I truly enjoyed this character-driven book. I think the Author Jason Deyo did a fantastic job with the story and the characters.
We follow Eric Hagen from the time he left his post in Jacksonville Fl. From the beginning throughout his travels to his mother’s home in Baltimore Maryland. He traveled with various individuals and groups of people and ended up finding a family he could call his own. Naomi, Samantha a 13 yr old girl & Drew a young boy. They had found a safe haven here and there an one where there was an incident with one of the other scavenging teams, due to a man’s son being disruptive in class, where as he was removed and put to work. Doing crappy jobs to burn off his extra energy, knowing in time he would return back to class and behave much better. Our little group of four had decided prior to the confrontation to head out again to the north had Eric’s family home to check on his parents.
Sometimes it is the hidden dangers within a small group that is the deadliest because when they surface it catches you off guard.
This was a long book with well placed twist and turns, it could have even been broken down into three separate books.
The man that narrated this book did a wonderful job. Jason Deyo used creative problem-solving skills with several real life problems that may occur, I thought it was brilliant to take the trouble maker out of school and putting him to work doing crappy jobs to help him realize that in class was where he wanted to be. That was just one example.

I love me it, I hated it

It was an amazing story from start to finish except for one Pain in the ass character who shall remain unnamed in my opinion this character should have stepped on a rusty nail halfway through and died from complications to tetanus 3/4 of the way through 😞😞
