Description

This is it.

Alpha team goes once more into the breach.

On what will be their final missions ever in the Zulu Alpha - and the fight of their lives — Homer & Ali, and Predator & Juice, launch out into the terminal post-Apocalypse, as London is overrun by the very last rush of death covering the entire planet. Neither mission can fail, but can all four teammates survive? Or will some go down safeguarding the lives of those they love more than life itself?

Handon fights his way back from the dead.

As reinforcements flood into CentCom, ahead of the onslaught of the undead world, one man lies in a coma at the heart of humanity's final fallback position. But will the ghosts of all those who've fallen before, and the love of those who yet remain, be enough to bring him back to life, and back to the fight, in time to lead the final battle?

The last survivors man the Alamo of the Alamo.

As CentCom is overrun, and it all collapses and the screen goes black, the last heroes of humanity have one final chance to save the world. But as they cling to one another in their shrinking circle of life, will they be able pull it off from the mast of the last sinking ship in a world submerged in a sea of death...?

Love. Death. The End of the line. Endgame.

Excellent conclusion to a fantastic series

I have read and listened to a number of zombie stories. Most of which are, as of yet, unfinished and seem unlikely to ever be finished.

This series, however, does have a definite conclusion, and the conclusion that it comes to is satisfying and complete. The series takes you through absolute darkness and despair and you end up on the other side of death, happy and satisfied with the final result.

Well done.

Entertaining stories meet great story-telling!

I know nothing about the the military or guns, so the elaborate descriptions didn't really do anything for me, but the it's not enough to take away my 5 out of 5 rating. The story's great, I love R.C. Bray, and even though he can't do British accents, kudos for not trying and buggering it up. I've purchased a number of books solely for the fact he's the narrator!

This entire series is edge-of your seat, root for the good guys and hate the bad guys, entertaining stories and storytelling at its best. Although it can get a little repetitive and drags on a bit at times, after I finished each book, I'd do a little happy dance when I had another in the series to download. I'm very sad the series concludes with Endgame, but happy I have other Michael Stephen Fuchs books to choose from.

I thought it would never end. Then wished it never would (whole series)

Fantastic nail biter end to a constant edge of your seat, never letting up, action packed, adrenaline fuelled marathon. Not just this book but the entire series. The only “down time” in this series is a luring into a false sense of security. Zed’s Law. Everything that can go tits up probably will. But they fight tooth and nail and their “deus ex machina” saves actually give the sense there is a guiding puppeteer (addressed repeatedly). They are forgiven those moments because they also contend with “deus ex rectum” (god fucking you in the ass) enough times.

I’m going to go back and start the series at the beginning. I want to experience it all over again. There is nobody in the audiobook industry more perfect to voice these books than RC Bray as well. I begin to recognize characters by his chosen voice for them. Accent, tone, speed, inflection... he effectively changes enough between similar characters that you tell them apart and he voices hundreds through this series. Reused voices are only, from what I can tell, characters who never interact and/or don’t last long.

I started this series because of Bray. I kept on through the whole thing because it’s really good.

..and then..

This has been one of the most frustrating series I have ever read. It is a great story, well read and with good characters.. but the author totally over uses the 'anything that will go wrong, will go wrong'.. every single half step forward is met with something going wrong and 3 steps backwards.. followed by 20 pages dealing with the issue that went wrong. It makes for an incredible frustrating read. The entire series would have been one of the best series ever had it been 9 or 10 books only. In many places, it just drags on and on and on..

Just Stop at Book 13 - This Nearly Ruins The Serie

I loved the first 13. Yes, some were slower and "builder" books but "Endgame" feels like a chapter massively drawn out to a whole book.

I'm also harboring a suspicion that this one was ghost written by someone else. There are too many stylistic changes from the previous books: a marked increase the in the "Girl Powah!" awesomeness/dominance of the women characters, way WAY too many "skin of the teeth" escapes and and ending that was never in doubt.

I also took exception to the negative portrayal of the "Texas Colonel". Pretty much the only negative portrayal of anyone (outside the Russians) in the entire series.

I ended up forcing myself to finish this one, on the outside chance something interesting/unexpected would happen.

If you like the series, quit at 13 - you can figure out pretty much 95% of what's going to happen without touching Book 14.

Wtf

SPOILERS

In a series filled to the brim with outstanding cabinets and severe bad luck, this one ruins the whole experience for me. Mainly the circumstances surrounding Handon and Sarah.

Up until the moment Handon orders her to die, all of Alpha had been making compromises just like the ones they had admonished her for. Just like the ones Handon got crap for.

More than half the book he talks about alpha’s humanity and fighting for their souls and in the eleventh hour he sacrifices his pregnant girlfriend, instead of, like Ali and Homer did for each other or Predator did for those random people and juice for him, Handon doesn’t even make the attempt to save her. That’s crap.
Impossibly stupid bad things happen in these books, but this one he writes as happening by design. Lots of deus ex crap happens but there’s none in sight for this.

Ruins it.

Alright chaps let's leave the armory unguarded

I have two main problems with this book and the series as a whole.

1. I get it it is the Zpoc, but not everything needs to go wrong. We all have heard of Murphy's law but this book imagines it as Robocop himself kicking them in the shins. if there is a tiny crack in a wall better bet your sweet British butt that eight zombies, a terrorist, and the devil himself is coming through that in a chapter or two. Trying to show a slippery slope of panic and haste leading to disaster builds tension, but when everyone is having Murphy personally giving them the shaft it stops becoming tense and starts becoming a Benny Hill comedy hour. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if while aiming at a zombie a man's gun jams then a grenade that he hastily attached to his rig pops off armed while his pants drop the ground in this book.

2. The absolute total incompetence of British forces baring the royal marines. So I get it we are having a power fantasy with alpha team and the royal marines and of course Wesley and his rag tag group. So how do we show how amazing they are? Let's dumb down the rest of the forces. Now I am a civilian I never went into any military branch , but even my over fed, MT.V. riddled mind knows that maybe just maybe we should place armed guard in the one place that has all our ammo and weapons I don't know maybe I'm the Steven Hawkins of military minds. This is not the first time this series pulled this. A few books back when they were working on the spirit bomb to stop the zombies it was unguarded. I mean completely unguarded no fat security guard asking if the person entering was undead or alive not even a broom propped up against the door as a low tech locking mechanism. Look I'm American I'm down with grabbing tea and slam dunking it into the nearest body of water, but when you downgrade not only the British soldiers but their officers to the point that I'm not sure if they can breathe without swallowing their tongues it becomes offensive.

Alright so if you have read this far congrats you received an audible award +25p listened to a rant but let's have some fun and talk about some tropes that are super worn out not only in this book but just in Zpoc books in general ready?

BONUS ROUND! SUPER FUN TIME ZOMBIE TROPES

if there are marines in your book better bet your sweet American big Mac loving ass one of them is gunnery sargent I eat nails and pis s freedom harker.

and the race is off who will win? the shuffling horde of zombies or Dr. James the last doctor on earth who accidently farted in the DNA sequencer and may have found a cure.

Ok this one is from the book guilty I am Russian strong as bear we need scientist for evil world plan comrade. seriously Russians? dude it's not the 1980's lay off the red scare

This is a g 36 with a 16 inch barrel 50 round drum magazine 4 times acog combi sight with underslung grenade launcher, master key, and sword laser sight and does your taxes while telling your ex wife to take a leap firing 5.56 NATO rounds manufactured in Nevada where the guy making the bullet is suffering from chronic heartburn who doesn't make enough to support his gun buying habits. Look it's ok to describe a weapon it is not ok to jerk off on it gums up the action.

This is top of the line military armored tank it has 120mm cannon 8 light machine guns coaxile tow missle system and a line to Jesus himself to bring the wrath of God down on any that approach. "sir that zombie can move at the speed of a medium sized cat!" "Well gentlemen we are dead"

left for read: we got shambling zombies and we got runners but we NEED our special one of a kind only in this book zombie variant be it smart zombies, vampire zombies (looking at you mark tufo) zombies that fly, faster than a speeding bullet can jump over a building in a single bound!


overall super played out should of ended the series four books ago and all these problems would of been way better but after what thirteen books of this I'm done didn't finish this story know how it's going to end crap gets bad the cure is going to almost be used but like parks trips over a broom or a cat attacks him and one of the main characters will die to make sure it's done huzah.

P.S R.C Bray keep at it you sexy man you can describe how to carve a wood figure and I'd listen to it

Hours of chaos!!!

An outstanding series with a truly great conclusion. Hours of chaos and destruction of the living and dead. This is a must read for zombie horror fans and military fans as well.
Hands down my favorite book series of all time.

decent but not quite up to par

this was 2x as long as it needed to be. And how many things that can go wrong will? This entire series was amazing, but this one was questionable. I found myself rolling my eyes on a regular basis in the last 1/4. Still good, but the last half seemed forced and the last 1/4 was filler.

Great Series

Fuchs did a great job of tying up all the ends and putting a bow on the story for fans. Endgame was a bit tedious towards the end but I was torn between getting to the final event and realizing the story, that I’ve invested many hours, was coming to its end. Overall, excellent series of books. Of all the books I’ve listened to, R. C. Bray is beyond a doubt the best narrator. Period. Great work!

Sad it’s over.

This is the best series of books I’ve ever listened to. I hate that they’ve ended. 😞
