Description

Stebbins Little School is full of bodies. It's unthinkable to Desdemona Fox. Children are sobbing as panicked teachers and neighbors beat down their family members outside of the school - or the things that used to be their family members. Parents don't eat their children do they?

Officers Fox and Hammond, along with journalist Billy Trout, are calling it the beginning of the end. This is the zombie apocalypse. An insane escaped serial killer is infecting Stebbins County with a deadly virus, and now the whole world is watching while Fox, Trout, and the remaining inhabitants of Stebbins fight for their life against - what? The undead?

The President and the National Guard are ready to nuke Stebbins, PA off the map and cut their losses. But the infection is spreading and fast. Worse, the scientist who created the virus is missing. It's a numbers game as the body count rises; Fox has to contain the infected and evacuate the living before it's too late, and the clock is ticking.

Fall of Night, Maberry's nail-biting sequel to Dead of Night, picks up where the first novel left off - on a wild goose chase for a madman and the missing scientist who gave him new "un"-life. Chilling, gory, and hair-raisingly scary, Maberry fans won't be able to read this fast-paced thriller with the lights off.

Well written and read!

What did you love best about Fall of Night?

Probably the split and individual attention given to both the main characters and non main characters and their reactions and stories to the zombies.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fall of Night?

I won't say, but Maberry does any amazing job doing something few writers can these days without it being a "jump the shark" moment. If you have read a lot, or all, of Maberry's books and know many of his CHARACTERS, you'll know what I mean.

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

I was a little hesitant when Dead of Night came out. I actually had a chance to meet Maberry in Doylestown PA on Holloween at a book signing for its release. First off he is such a pleasant guy and very fan friendly. He told me that the guy who did the voice for Bob the Builder was reading it. I was so used to hearing Ray Porter's voice, but after a while, Williams voice grew on me and I really enjoyed both books. William, in my opinion, really excelled at both his transition of unique voices, and his passionate expression of stress and fright of both male and female characters. In a horror/suspense novel, getting a listener to really feel stress and anxiety is not easy, so kudos.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I'll get back to you ok that

Any additional comments?

This was one of Maberry's better books of late. I will never get tired of his Joe Ledger series, and while zombie fiction seems to never want to die (ha ha), Maberry does a fresh job with this book. Not only with what his version of zombies really mean, but adds these unique side stories that all tie into one and other in a very nicely done way that is never stale. And, to be honest, I was caught off guard by the ending and the surprises that were thrown in there. I won't spoil anything but I thought it was very well done and does the fans a huge service. Hopefully, there will be a third book in this series that, given the way this one ended, will have a lot of Maberry fans "chomping at the bit" to get to the end. Come on, who can help but make puns like that.

Simply Ear Candy

Being the Jonathan Maberry fan that I have turned into over the years and even though I didn't like William Dufris' past performance, I had to give this a listen. I really have no excuse, other than craving an amazingly well thought out zombie story to escape to for many hours.

First let me say thank you Mr. Maberry, thank you for intertwining all of your series into one extra long tale. And thank you for giving me yet another series to listen to, especially the Benny Imura series.

Fall of Night picks up almost immediately where Dead of Night left off. All of the characters that we started to love or hate in the previous story are still here. Yet introducing some fairly important new ones. Such as Benny Imura's father.

This is a pretty standard and self explanatory runs from the zombies type of story. Here is the golden jewel. The parts told from the perspective of those that are turning into zombie are nothing less than ear candy. Totally creeped me out each and every time. I had always wondered what one was thinking about turning this gruesome transition.

Sorry, no summary here. But if you want to be completely transported to life in the zombie apocalypse. To be surrounded by interesting characters. To follow the escapade of a truly evil villain that is neither human nor zombie. A great telling of a series that is a prequel to another series. You get all of that here.

Everything that I didn't like about William Dufris' performance in book 1 was not present at all in this book 2. Unless my taste has changed dramatically over the past 2 years.

I couldn't find any unnecessary over acting, over emphasizing, or anything annoying at all. Trust me I wanted to so I could say, "See I told you so...", but this just goes to show that a narrator that I once didn't like can become a favorite. Never ever judge an audiobook by its narrator, difficult I know, but just don't.

Mayberry working his magic.

Prequel to the riveting Benny Imura series. This book does a beautiful job setting up the world to come. The characters and story are what you would expect from Maberry. I wish there was more.

Great story, hilarious narrator

I loved the story and can't wait for the next one. William Dufris narration is hilariously over the top though.

Now I have PABD

Read/Listened for Fun (Paperback/Audible)
Overall Rating: 5.00
Story Rating: 5.00
Character Rating: 5.00

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Fall of Night by Jonathan Maberry has given me PABD (Post Awesome Book Depression)!

Story Thoughts: You know when a book just has you on edge THE ENTIRE TIME? Well that is me with this series. Even though I ultimately know where it is going because I have read most of the Rot and Ruin series. The path is still emotionally gutting. From seeing characters that I have heard about in the other series (Ledger and Imura) to the characters I already cared about from Dead of Night, I just care about everything they go through. This story made me cheer, cry, and cuss Jonathan Maberry just a little bit. When the last minute ticked away, I pretty much just sat there thinking: I am just not sure what I can follow this up with!

Character Thoughts: These aren't your typical "lovable" characters but dammit I loved all of them. I just wanted to find them a safe place to go. I loved their passion, stamina, and will to live. I loved the chances that they took. The people that they mourned (because it is a zombie book y'all--people die). The love that they still managed to have! I particularly loved all their batshit crazy moments--though Dez just gotta say that taking a bath in steak sauce is not on my Zombie Apocalypse plan *snort*. Each character was unique and brilliantly written.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated by: William Dufris /Length: 15 hrs and 2 mins


Holy crap William Dufris was excellent. This makes me want to go back and listen to the first one which I originally read. His pacing, accents, emotion, and urgency were just the right pace for this story. I will definitely listen to him again in the future!

Final Thoughts: PABD--I will try to fight through!

NOTE: PABD was stolen (with permission) from Tara from 25 Hour Books. It stands for Post Awesome Book Depression when you are just not sure what to read after because this book was so awesome. I will soldier through but I am going to completely change genres. It is the only solution!

Fills in a lot of gaps

Would you listen to Fall of Night again? Why?

Good narration and a lot of depth and action to the story.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that it introduced new characters that helped close the gaps in many other books by the author. Captain Ledger is mentioned as are Tom Imura and Charley Pink Eye. It confirms that all of the stories take place as part of the same infection and in the same "world".

Enjoyable, but slow in parts

The first book was better, IMHO, but ss a sequel, it was nice to have follow up to the Dead of Night story. I would assume, given the ending, there will be a part 3, as well.

This storyline was not as good as the Joe Ledger stories, which are phenomenal (particularly in audio form; Ray Porter's narration is amazing). Much of the content seemed to be filler. Not that it was drab, but there was a lot of repetition of information, told from a different POV. These had the effect of slowing down the story's progression.

I did like how the story wasn't very predictable. Hopefully, there is a 3rd book, as I'd like to know how it ends.

Narrator is horrible.

I honestly could not get through it because of the narrator. I purchased this because I like Maberry’s writing so much it’s typically an insta-buy. The problem is he typically works with Ray Porter, whom breathes life into characters. I’m sure Dufris is a great guy, but not sure narration is his calling.
