Publisher's Summary

It was just a random mutation - one of a billion that happen in viruses every day. But this one was different. It exploded out of Somalia and spread across the oceans before anybody thought to look up from their cell phones to see what was going on. 

The infected breathed the virus into the air around them, spreading it through the cities faster than anyone thought possible. Hospitals were overwhelmed. Police lines crumbled. Quarantine sites disintegrated. Cities started to collapse.  

Through the chaos, some, like Zed Zane, discovered the virus wasn't going to kill them, but change them. Change them into something different, and leave them in a world where the word "survival" took on an older, more brutal meaning.

Enjoyed it all !!

From start to finish a very good book. I almost passed it by because of some reviews but soon changed my mind.
A go getter right from the start. Very good narration and story line. Characters are good and unlike many novels you remember them. I would highly recommend this book if you like zombie type of books.

Loved it

It was a long haul but worth every minute. It kept me there through the entire story and I love Phil Thron's narrative.
Very visual, entertaining adventure.

Amused me for days!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Thought the characters were fun, quirky (main character reminded me of an ex. Still mulling that one over!) and consistent. The natural progression of their characters made sense.

Great voice over job.

Takes some getting used to

The story line is excellent and it is a nice twist on the post apocalyptic thriller book. But....the narrator is not well suited to this genre and takes a lot of getting used to and all of his characters sound the same. He needs to go to the Bray school of narration. The main character is unlikable, childish and annoying. He is someone I would kill off in real life if I met him in a post apocalyptic world. Murphy would have better suited to being the main character. At least he is likable.
But...again, the story line is a unique twist on the predictable zombie thriller. If you can overlook the awful narration, the annoying main character and the superfluous vocab added at every turn.

A few irritating things

just a few things that just rub the wrong way.
This is coming from my point of view as a Retired Marine.
1. When narrators screw up Military terms and names of gear. examples; MOLLE it is pronounced as MAUL-EE not mol- lay.
when saying names of weapons or vehicles
military personnel say MRAP like it spelt as a word not M R A P as in separate letters. that goes for all vehicles just as when some one says HMMWV as humvee. when it comes to numbers on weapons or ammunition the number is said as a whole number not individual numbers ie M240G machine gun is said as MtwofortynineGolf. with ammunition 5.56mm is not said 5 point 5 6 its five five six or seven six two.
last thing FOB is not said as F O B its pronounced as spelled FOB ( fahhb ).
Basically if you are writing or Narrating any type of military terms research ow the military actually says it, it will immerse the reader or listener more in the story.

Interesting take on the Zombie/virus pandemic genre.

what a ride!!

this has to be one of the best deals on audible right now, 9 books and it never got repetitive, the characters were great and the story always fresh and exciting, I can't recommend this enough, the narrator was absolutely awesome as well.

Give it a chance

I got this set because Phil Thron gave a heads-up about it on Twitter, and I’m a big fan of Phil Thron. I really enjoyed this story. Good main characters, lots of action, and good storyline. Take a chance and enjoy.

A must have Just as good the second time around .

I read a review that compared this to zombie fallout. I read these books before zombie fallout and found them to be more accurate as far as weapons / vehicle names which I pointed out to the author of ZF but that was my only complaint of that series . Which is ok I like both series in their own right. I used to be stationed at ft hood texas 60 miles or so from Austin. So everything about this book was visually referenced . Down to the water station right at the corner of the airfield on ft good I just found these books to be so good! Other than the improper pronunciation of molle often referred to as Molly or a Flick everything else was solid . It was just all around heartwarming. And interesting to see the characters transformation. I believe zombie fallout got more press because of mark tufos unique protagonist . But for one credit it is a must have. Not totally unrealistic in the tactical sense . How they blend in is cool .I honestly hope this book has its second coming and makes this dude a lot of money. I think he deserves it. I always like when characters move past and never consider race as an issue as well . Just brotherhood forged in survival. Next I hope mark Tufo comes out with boxed set as I lost track of those after I thought it ended moving onto the werewolf saga. Both are essential reads for sci-fi apocalypse sagas .

The GOAT!!!!!

I have read and listened to untold numbers of post apocalyptic novels. This is BY FAR the GREATEST OF ALL TIME!!!. Bobby Adair is the bomb and he truly captured and unleashed the characters of Zed Zain "Null Spot the Destroyer" and the "Mighty Murphy" Smalls on the naked bald horde. The depth of his characters and his ability to weave a fascinating tale of horror and delight all on the same page. I will keep this tale and go back to it often. The detail that he goes to is amazing as well.

Then the Narration by Phil Thron is out of this world. He brought the pages to life and pulled me into the action.

One of the greatest “zombie” books

I was slow to get into this but let me tell you. I loved it. Bobby Adair knocked this series out of the park and Phil Thron did an incredible job on the narration. Look...50 hours of this series in a box set is probably the best value on audible and you would be crazy to not get this. I wish there was more, but it ended right where it should have. Perfect pacing, fun action sequences, suspenseful moments, the tug of the heart and the existential dread worked in concert with every scene.

It should be noted that I RARELY write reviews but I absolutely had to rave about this series. Thanks Bobby and Phil for 50 hours that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Love the different perspective

love these characters and Murphy especially. The different direction taken with the infected was great and refreshing as far as post apocalyptic viruses go.

Great Post-Apochalyptic Thriller

Fabulously written. Loved the descriptions, witty and realistic dialogue and fully dimensioned characters. He breathes new life into a tired genre. Pair this with the always impressive Phil Thron and you've got a real winner.
