Publisher's Summary

His hands knew how to fight. His fingers knew the ways of war. Gunny, Griz, and the crew have one more mission south of the border, the Traveler is looking to right some wrongs, and Jessie is trapped in a faraway place. The undead hordes are as vicious as ever, and a simple rescue mission gets real complicated real quick. An orphaned girl, a community on an island, a hunt for a goat, and the Mona Lisa help the jaded Traveler find his place in a world that isn’t his. While Jessie waits for Scarlet to heal, his mysterious protector may be more human than anyone thought.

This is the final two-fisted, gas-guzzling, gear-grinding thrill ride of the Zombie Road saga. More tales to come, but this concludes the story that started with the Convoy of Carnage.

I hated the hybrid storyline

I loved the first 4 stories in the Zombie Road series. I actually adored them. I would regularly recommend the series to friends and family. However, when the series introduced the time machine and space travel I lost my passion for the story. I continued to listen to the series with the hope that it would get better, but it only got worse. I still believe that Eric A. Shellman is an awesome narrator and David A. Simpson is an excellent writer, but the hybrid storyline with Jessie and Scarlette, with the aliens, space battles, time travel, alternate universes, androids, and AI were just horrible and disappointing. They just didn't fit with the original ZA theme of the book, and in my opinion, it detracted from the quality of the entire story. I will never recommend this series to anyone, ever again. It was such a disappointment to see my favorite ZA series end up sounding like a rejected episode for the Doctor WHO series. (Please note I actually love Doctor Who).

Disappointed in the mixing of two genres that didn’t do if for me

I love anything post apocalyptic and zombie related but I do not like space aliens! That’s a completely different genre that doesn’t mix with PA/ZA. I actually skipped a chapter or two when Jessie was in space after it just dragged on for me and had nothing to do with surviving the ZA. I’m so bummed it went in that direction… so much so that I don’t want to read anything else related to this series and will probably return the Feral Children series. That’s how much it put me off… Up to that point it was fantastic. But to just write off Gunny as if he was just a minor character and skim over his part and the others towards the end was just plain stupid imho. They are what kept me interested. Not Jessie and Scarlett. That whiney storyline was childish. Ugh what a disappointment!

Eric Shelman is an outstanding narrator!!! I’m moving on to his zombie series next :)

Good series ending but....I want more!!!!!

First, I wish it wasn't over. Second, where's the story about baby Jesse??? I could see a spinoff Sci fi series with Maddie and Jesse...and Scarlet and Jesse, wouldn't that be fun? Finally, thank you for these books, I listen while driving a semi around the country, they combined two of my favorite topics and took me on a helluva ride!

This series took a left into sci-fi

The beginning of this series is awesome if you’re a zombie nut. The end of the series goes into sci-fi. Great if you’re into that. It was written well. I just want a zombie book.

Awesome

Sad to see ZR end but hopeful that Mr. Simpson decides to write a new line of books based on Jessie and Scarlets space adventures and a line on Jessie and Maddy's adventures on earth.
