Description

Audible number-one best seller Peter Clines returns with a thrilling tale of the creature above - and the deadly threat below. 

In the year 2243, the Moon belongs to the dead. 

The largest graveyard in the solar system, it was the perfect solution to the overcrowding and environmental problems that had plagued mankind for centuries. And the perfect place for Cali Washington to run away from her past. 

But when a mysterious meteor crashes into one of the Moon’s cemeteries, Cali and her fellow Caretakers find themselves surrounded by a terrifying enemy force that outnumbers them more than a thousand to one. An enemy not hindered by the lack of air or warmth or sustenance. 

An enemy that is already dead. 

Now Cali and her compatriots must fight to survive. Because if they don’t, everyone on the Moon may be joining the dead. 

And maybe everyone on Earth, too....

"What's going on out there..."

I seldom write reviews, and thoroughly enjoyed The Fold and 14 but this installment in the Threshold series is an absolute exercise in frustration taken to a whole new extreme. I am two thirds through and will be abandoning this book for a while. Maybe the repetition and predictable outcomes will fade enough so that I can pick it up again. I may or may not return it. As other more detailed reviews have pointed out, the characters are cardboard or ... cannon fodder if you want to be generous.

Good Book, Doesn't for the threshold series.

I feel like all these connections were made later after the story had been written already. It didn't seem to fit with the other two the same way, didn't have the same vibe and sounded.. cheaper. Ray Porter is awesome though and aside from my opinion on its status as the third book, as a stand alone that didn't tie in like the first 2 in the series, it was a really cool SciFi concept , I just think it could have been out together better, but still worth the time and super fun.

The Worst Book in the Series

This book doesn't add anything to the series or really even develop the world further.
It's zombies on the moon.
And it's not even a particularly good zombie story at that.

Long time fan saying skip it. Frustrating

Peter Clines is one of my favourite authors of all time, “14” is one of my favourite books of all time so I’m sad to confirm that Dead Moon is not good. Tying it to the other 2 books in the series was not a good idea, but even as a stand-alone story, this is slow, confusing and not a lot of fun. I agree with other reviewers reasons as to why this is the case, but I have to say these really frustrated me:

*** Spoilers ***

I get that the moon is now a tourist attraction but they only have a sheriff and a deputy as security up there? On a station on the moon? I get that we needed the caretakers to become deputies at some point to get access to the station systems but come on. Also no weapons on the station at all? Not even tasers?

No general alarm ever goes off on the station, visitors have to be told there’s an emergency by word of mouth? And those visitors and the station director are dumbed down way too much.

Ray Porter is great as usual but I felt like even he wasn't sure how to define the personalities of the main characters and some of his choices felt wrong.

Finally, why do the main characters (who know what's happening), keep asking: “What’s going on?”, "What?", "Why", as frequently as they do.

Why did you do this? Just why?

I had this pre-ordered and was excited the new Threshold series book was coming. LOVED the first two and eagerly started this as soon as it hit my library. Sad to report I couldn’t be more disappointed. I’m not even sure that’s the word. I’m shocked at how bad this is. Remember those fun and well thought out sci-fi plots with great characters you really got attached to? Remember how there was some attention paid to science? Forget all that. That’s old news. You know what the people want these days?

Space. Zombies. I wish it were a joke. It’s almost as if they tried to have AI write this and it decided to just copy paste from every possible cliche zombie book with one dimensional characters. Don’t worry. This is different because......they’re on the moon! The entire premise makes zero sense and there’s no attemp to explain any of it. At all. And there is no one or anything to care about in this stupid story. The characters aren’t developed and the “main” characters actions I could predict enough so that I was skipping through chapters just trying to find something interesting. Hours and hours of just, running from zombies, or not believing there’s zombies and then running from zombies. The only characters that made sense are the ones who kept saying “This is madness”. Yes it is.

I can’t review this without mentioning the female lead. It truly makes me question how this book happened. *Spoiler - I guess. Seems silly to call it a spoiler since there’s whole threads on reddit about this female trope. Picture this: Mysterious and attractive 25 year old who has secrets. Her intro starts with her jumpsuit being too darn tight in the hips and chest and repeatedly has to “adjust the crotch” much to the delight of males around her. How do we know? Because it’s mentioned often. What’s she hiding? Running from her secret past as a drug dealer? No. Victim of abuse? No. Death of someone close to her? No. Witness Protection? Nope. She’s a failed ballerina. That’s right. And she just has to turn down those modeling gigs because darn it she’s more than her beautiful and flexible body!! Which is also mentioned multiple times. This. Is. Real. This is a thing written, edited and packaged for fans of the Threshold series*

My god why have you done this to your fans? Why did you put this into the world? I tried to listen to the end and can’t do it. It’s that bad. I have less than 90 minutes and can’t. I have over 500 books in my Audible library and I can only think of a handful of times I couldn’t make myself finish. I’m sad to say this is one. Bring back this series please. This cannot count. We can all pretend this never happened.

How can you call it Threshold series?

If you enjoyed 14 and the Fold (which I loved) and expected anything similar, then you will be disappointed. This has nothing to do with other two. This is basically zombie/alien outbreak on the moon in future. No reverence to Kavach, characters form other books etc. To the very end I was expecting some connection or plot twist that would put it with 14 and the fold in Threshold series. I like Peter Clines' writing style and Ray Porter is one of my favourite narrators. It simply was not on par with other books. First half was extremely linear and it was hard to keep focused. I also had feeling that Ray Porter forces himself to read throug it due to some loyality to the author. Even if I wouldn't have such high hopes for this book I couldn't give it more stars for the story.

Not my favourite

I really wanted to love this, but I found it extremely slow to get going and without the two most important things I expect from a Peter Clines novel - awesome characters/character interactions, and twists.

I felt that the characterization was too little and much too late. I didn't have any reason at all to care about any of the characters until about 2/3 of the way into the book. By then, I would have already returned it, if it wasn't a Threshold book, to be honest.

The first 2/3 of the book is a very linear, standard story without surprises of any kind. It just wasn't very interesting, especially without strong characterization to carry the story along. There weren't any of the cool mysteries like the green roaches or blacklight fixture of "14", to pique my interest and make me wonder what was around the corner.

Don't get me wrong - there are some really cool scenes, and the Big Bad when it finally appears, really delivers! I feel like this book would have worked WAY better as a novella that omitted most of the first part of the story. I just didn't feel the moon zombies really added anything. Which is too bad because I thought the concept of moon zombies was pretty exciting :P

Still looking forward to the next book... just hoping it will be a little more like 14 and The Fold as far as pacing/characterization!

Weakest in the series

Don’t expect this book to be at the same level as the first two books in the Threshold series. It’s a straight up zombie outbreak on the moon story with only the slightest relationship to the first two books. It reads like a side project that was adapted into the Threshold series in the 11th hour.

Hate to say it but it was disappointing

14 and The Fold were great and I just don't think Dead Moon was as good as the first two. Not even close.

Dead Book

So glad to pop in here to see if it was me or not and find out it's not!

I generally love Peter Clines but even Ray Porter seems to read this book meh.

I've got about 2 1/4 hours left and I'm not sure if I'll finish.

I don't usually read reviews while I'm actually reading the book but as I said I wondered whether it was me struggling or whether anyone else was too.

It doesn't really give me any satisfaction to know I wasn't the only one mugged

I'm clearly not the the only one disappointed...

I loved 14, I've listened to it a handful of times. I loved The Fold, it did an excellent job of building that lurking fear of the unknown.
I slogged through the "Ex" zombie books hoping to find some of the same intensity, but the zombie genre is so saturated that only the most well written and unique stories manage to hold their own.
I always assumed Clines wrote the "Ex" books because he could fire them out at a rapid pace and earn a steady paycheck. I figured he wrote them while he was brainstorming the good stuff like 14 and The Fold.
I listened to the first 9 hours of Dead Moon in a state suspended disbelief: "It can't just be zombies on the moon".
It is.
It's zombies on the moon.
Sure, there's a tiny bit of the same Space-Whale-Alpha-Predator story in the very end, but it's not worth getting there.

Silver Lining: Ray Porter remains an incredible narrator. Thank you Ray, for breathing life in to this husk of a story.

Not my fav.

Love the other two in the series, this one not so much. Thought there were too many characters introduced at once and got kind of mixed up. Also and I really don't understand why I do this sometimes. I pretty much only read/listen to SF/fantasy. I can believe in zombies, vampires, werewolves BUT I could not suspend my disbelief on the cost effectiveness of sending bodies to the moon. Just could not wrap my mind around it.

Disappointing

I loved 14 and The Fold. While this is supposedly part of the same series, the connection is weak at best. I experienced none of the wonderfully developed characters and edge-of-your-seat plot twists from 14 and The Fold in this audiobook. While there certainly suspenseful moments, I felt these scenes were something of a one-trick pony where the same elements were replayed again and again, to ever lessening effect. And while there were a few "ah-ha!" moments in the book, these mostly occurred when something that happened in the past was explained in a different context and thus you see how the main characters had been tricked.

The narrator Ray Porter was excellent, as usual.

SPOILER ALERT: What I couldn't get past is how even after the zombie invasion was on top of them at the main base, even after the next incoming spacecraft crash landed and destroyed everything in sight and dozens were dead, the folks on the moon still didn't notify Earth. This made no sense to me at all. But then again, many of the characters' actions, particularly in the second half of the book, made any real sense to me.
