Publisher's Summary

An unstoppable curse. A dead man displaced from his time. How do you survive the zombie apocalypse when you started it?

Digby Graves, a deceased medieval peasant with delusions of grandeur, is trying to figure out how the hell he ended up in Seattle 800 years after his death. Also, why does he have necrotic magic coursing through his zombified body? Added to that is the fact that he made a terrible first impression the moment he woke up by lunging at the first person that came into biting range. 

Now, the curse he's unleashed is loose in the world. Digby has a target on his back and only fragmented memories of his death. He needs to survive long enough to put the pieces back together, learn what it means to lead the horde, and master his power over the dead. Digby might even find a few accomplices along the way, if he can hold off on eating them.

The end of the world is gonna get weird.

Excellent

An excellent non human protagonist story. For the most part I enjoyed it, but there were a couple parts that were a bit too contrived. That is just nitpicking though as it us great overall.
Great performance.

Finally, a Zombie Apocalypse written by an Author who graduated high school.

Granted this is as much GameLit as it is a Zombie book. However, in spite of having tried to listen to many of the Zombie books on Audible, only a handful could be said to be written by actual authors.

99% of what’s available on Audible in this genre is unedited, abysmally conceived, and poorly executed garbage, with plots so thin you could use them to jimmy a door lock.

So what a surprise it was when I found this book to be engaging, well written, and funny. Whether you’re a GameLit fan, or an apocalypse junky, or just a sci-if/fantasy enthusiast you won’t be disappointed.

Resident Evil, Zombies, LITRPG all into one glorious package

First off let’s start with how this book literally kept me to the point were I refused to stop listening to it.

Our MC storms a castle, becomes a Mage, dies, becomes living dead, is woken by some scientists 800 years later, accidentally starts a zombie apocalypse, and now has to run by some zealots who want a new world order. Like can a guy catch a break. Their are twists and turns and a snarky system giving him updates.

Excellent flow to the book and character development. The flashbacks are nice to fill in the backstory and flush out the characters. As usual Travis did an amazing job with Narration. Definitely worth the credit and can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Ravenous

I don't know if I started the LitRPG genre is essentially funny and well written or if I started with brilliance.

An Original LitRPG!

Ravenous is a fun, action-packed-zombie -adventure-litRPG that I guarantee you have not read before!

The story begins on page one drawing you into the joy of making new friends and walking (or running lol) with them through a fantastic tale that does not end until, well... the last page. It is well written I honestly did not notice a single grammer error but then again I was busy being engaged in the novelty of reading something unique!

The plot was unique not only to me but also to the protagonist, Digs Graves. This guy wakes 800 years from his comfort zone, dead and hungry. What could go wrong?

Get this book! It does NOT end on a cliffhanger!! [[THANK YOU DAVID PETRIE!! ]] However I am pleased to know the sequel will be available within a fortnight for my next all nighter!

Enjoy this one my friends! I highly recommend this credit worthy novel!

A really enjoyable zombie apocalypse LITRPG

I have only seen a few authors attempt a zombie apocalypse LITRPG story and of those all but the rare few involve a human gamer against zombies.

Most that try the zombie gamer route end up writing themselves in a corner since even a semi intelligent zombie could easily overwhelm a settlement. By gathering guns and explosives from overrun army bases and armored vehicles. So the issue is how does your gamer zombie not wipe put his enamies without making them constantly make bad decisions?

Well this author decided not to worry about that. They decided that the humans are not the enemy of the gamer zombie. In fact he has a soft spot for those he considers innocent of those that had been beat down by society. His enemy is a group with similar advantages that he has but with a much stronger military might that he has to constantly fly work to try and overwhelm.

That said his goal so far isn’t to overwhelm anyone. He wants to find a way to escape his pursuers and maybe become human again. All he wants is a bit of normalcy in his life, or should I say Unlife? That said what’s normal even mean for an 800 year old former peasant zombie Mage who spent 8 centuries in ice in the middle of a bustling city?

Fantasy fulfilled? Yes!

It’s a story I didn’t know I needed! A unique character for a unique story. Who knew I needed a zombie like Dig in my life!

If you like zombies, magic, and games then check this one out!
