Publisher's Summary

"A thrilling, pulse-pounding addition to the genre with compelling science and a frightening twist." (Nicholas Sansbury Smith, NY Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Extinction Cycle and Hell Divers series)

This audiobook contains the first four audiobooks of the Tide series, filled with post-apocalyptic action, suspense, and intrigue.  

A devastating bioweapon will change the face and fate of humanity as we know it.  

Captain Dominic Holland leads a crew of skilled covert operatives and scientific personnel aboard a clandestine ship dedicated to fighting chemical and biological warfare. Their missions have taken them across the world to combat sinister plots and dangerous adversaries. But their next assignment is more dangerous than any they faced before. 

Far off the Eastern Coast of the US, intelligence officers discover a covert laboratory on an abandoned oil rig with unspeakable horrors. Twisted creatures wash ashore across the country. Hospitals are overrun by patients suffering from an incurable disease with terrifying symptoms.  

Dom and his team may be the only ones equipped to find out why. They embark on a globe-trotting race to unravel the apocalyptic mystery behind the bioweapon destroying civilization. 

But will their efforts be enough to turn the tide - or is humanity’s fate already sealed?

Left for dead two ripoff

The first book was really good. Great setup for a series. Then the ripoff of left for dead started. If it wasn’t for the narrator, I would have stopped listening. Got a Boxset of 4 books, listened to them all. They got cheesier as they went on.

Different angle

A slight twist on the zombie world. These dead living are more to be concerned about than your average zombie. The first 4 books are intriguing enough to continue with the series. With the understanding this is a fantasy series still a little disappointing that parts of the book have some incorrect facts . Wont mention the details but could have done a little more research in physics.
Overall for end of the world readers I’d say give it a try.

Great new series

If you're a fan of post-apocalyptic thrillers and looking for a new series to immerse yourself in, do yourself a favour and check out the reviews on audible.com - I'm really glad I did!

I read the review by one of my favourite authors, Nicholas Sansbury Smith, who wrote the Extinction Cycle and Hell Divers series. He had me at "A thrilling..."

There are many other positive reviews by fans of the genre. I'm so happy I took the time to check them out! I just finished listening to this 37-hour series in less than a week in my spare time, and I'm excited to get to the next book. This bundle of four books is a terrific deal - wish I could also get the next four in a bundle for one credit, but I'll happily spend 1 for 1 new story to dive back into this great series!

So-so.

This is an okay series. Nothing special about the writing, plot, characters or narration. Pretty much the same old, same old. After plodding through first four books I will not continue since I don't care what happens. Sigh.

Best in genre yet!

Wow! This book defines "Nitty Gritty". A roller coaster ride that just doesn't stop. Realistic characters that gave their all. I completely give my recommendation for this book in the genre's Horror and Post-Apocalyptic. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

A diffrtent kind of zombie.

I listened to all 4 books consecutively. I kept thinking I'd go for a change of pace, but curiosity kept pulling me back. All 4 books are full of suspence and terror. The creatures that threaten mankind aren't your run of the mill zombie, but an even more ferocious beast, with zombie like qualities. These books are hard to put down, or turn off, if you listen to the audiobook version.

Really good

It took me a hot second to get into it because of the military references. I’m not really into military stuff but once it got going, it got exciting and really good to the end.

good book

good series the first book is the best. the only issue I have is the video game feel as the creatures become mutated. I am not a fan of the mutation but well written and worth a credit for the 4 pack of books to see if you dig the story.

Great Value, Was Hard to Get Through

I get that I'm in the minority here, but I found this series very hard to get through. I can only sum it up by saying that once you've listened to the first four hours, you've heard the entire 37. It's just a constant battle without a break. The lack of a deeper story wore on me. I did finish it but it took a long time.

I normally enjoy zombie-type stories, but this was like getting hit in the face by a wave that never swelled or ebbed.

Can bloody hand to hand get boring? Yes.

By the end of book four (actually, book2), the action was positively repetitive, predictable, and simplistic. I could sum it up for you, but I'm not going to. Was there anything other than lots of improbably successful hand to hand (yes, even KNIFE) action with strong, fast, clawed, bullet resistant, infectious, demons? No, not really. In fairness, there were a few scenes where someone where somebody brought appropriate hardware... but somehow I seem to have missed every action where somebody brought out a 50cal to put down a Goliath... I know I would have used it for that, but what do I know, a scar-h ought to do it! So, if things like 'characters', 'plot', 'realistic action', 'plausible behavior', and the like are important in your books? You shouldn't waste your money. Leave this one for the dollar store.

Good story

Narrator was perfect for the story. overall story is good and different. I had a hard time staying into the story at times but I think it was due to listening to 4 books instead of one at a time with a break in between.
