Publisher's Summary

Mike and his family escaped a vast zombie horde to find themselves imprisoned by a clandestine group that seeks global domination by the most nefarious means possible. Help is coming, in the form of a 500-year-old PopTart-loving vampire named Tommy. Will he be enough to get the Talbots to freedom or will he succumb to monsters new and old? On top of all this Mike discovers that he is in the crosshairs of an ancient enemy and it is only a matter of time until the final showdown.

Talbot at his best! Again!

I drive truck, and I spend about 12 hours a day in my truck. When you spend so much time alone, you have to keep your mind occupied anyway you can. Thank God for my Iphone! It has allowed me to listen to lectures on every subject from law and justice, to the future of the human race. Sometimes, instead of learning, I like to spend my time in an escape that is provided by the great minds on Audible.
I have bought over 300 books on audible. Mostly I have bought novels by vince flynn, Michael.connelly, etc. Never really was into the horror fantasy genra before. But Mark Tufo changed that.
Zombie fallout 8 is a GREAT read. And like most of the books that Mark Tufo writes, you could, pick it up and read it and not be lost. But you would be doing yourself a great dis-service if you did that. You need to buy the rest and listen to them or read them in order to truly get the full enjoyment out the authors works.
If you are thinking that zombie books are for people with an IQ below 40, or rednecks, on that, with some of the drivel that people put out, I would agree with you. If you are thinking of reading any zombie book, you owe it to yourself to start with this series. You will be hooked! The main character (Mike Talbot) is a normal,(for the most part) guy, who could be the guy next door that you have BBQ with in the summer, and comes over to help you drink beer. The character development for all the characters is incredible. And the narrator, Sean Runatte, brings out every nuance and detail of the story perfectly. Seans inflections, and his voice is a HUGE part of the audio books ease of listening to.
If you read or listen to this series, then you will want to listen to the indian hill series, and spirit clearing.
Most authors, I think, Seem lost when they go from one writing subject to another. Mark Tufo does it with incredible ease. His Indian Hills series is awesome. And its on another subject I never cared to listen to before. Aliens.
Because of Mark Tufos works, I am listening to other books with aliens and zombies. I have quit comparing them to Tufos books, it really doesn't seem fair. Its like comparing monets work, to what I can do with crayolas.
In short, if you are on the fence about trying this type of book, start the series, and hang on, it's a hell of a ride!!

A Break For Mike, NEVER!!!!!

For every book i read, I feel sorry for Mike... He never gets a break.. NEVER!!!! so many many monsters here, some are really interesting.. and so many changes in the story plot.
New enemies and new team is in as well.

But the ending of this book was refreshing and happy, you guys will like it....

This zombie series is really one of my favourites, and Mark Tufo is doing a great job in this series and in others, Mike is a very interesting character.

Fantastic! The story continues

Would you listen to Zombie Fallout 8 again? Why?

Yes, I will listen to this and the preceding 7 other audiobooks again and Lycan

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tripp, reminds me of people I know too well.

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

This guy is great, really captures the intensity of the story and each character

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh and still laughing after I finished it.

Any additional comments?

If you are a hardcore Talbotinite (if it's not a word, it should be) like me, you do not want to miss this latest chapter in the series.

I waited and I enjoyed

What did you love best about Zombie Fallout 8?

I felt the wait for book 8 was a long one, I enjoyed the previous 7 that much so I had high a need for it sooner and expectations as well as questions. Would this be the end, how could Mark Tufo finish the series or continue it and in this I found out and Mark Tufo did not let me down.What did I love best about Zombie Fallout 8 - the wit, Mark Tufo has a gift for throwing out those lines that give that chuckle of pleasure, irony, a shake of the head and a giggle.

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Having only heard Sean Runnette in this series I would say he is perfect. Sean has Talbot down perfectly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh boy yes, but unfortunately us chumps have to work.

Any additional comments?

I have loved this series, and recommend it to anyone who likes a darn good zombie book and with humor, with vampires too and characters you can imagine.

I have to say Tripp is by far my favorite character. He keeps it real for me. How he survived the Zombie hordes is perhaps another story (hint, hint) Mr. Tufo.

I have had the pleasure of listening of the previous 7 in a series which for me gave me a month or more of isolation and high listening stats which proves the enjoyment. And this one would have been the icing and now I ask will there be more.... I will wait.

getting the series back on track!

Which scene was your favorite?

mike, tommy, pork chop, a fire hose, a hoard of zombies, and fire axes wielded with vampiric speed and strength.

Any additional comments?


when the last book ended, mike and his family were prisoners of the dimenci (sp?) group. bt and justin had received a vaccine for their zombie virus infection and seemed to be ok. tommy is no where to be seen. he is thought to be blown to bits when the dimenci group stormed their last location. mrs. denoe arrived at the secret compound with dennis. surprisingly, she is part of the dimenci group b/c of her late husband, who she murdered.

zf8 picks up after zf7's abrupt ending. i won't spoil any of the plot, but it does seem like the extra time between the stories has helped tufo get back on track. either that, or his writing is just so much better than most of the other z-writers out there.

what am i talking about? the dialogue. the dialogue between the characters is great, especially the bantering, and this is where tufo really shines!

most of the characters are given just the right amount of time throughout story; however, i would have liked to see where justin's head is after all he's been through, but with soo many characters, i guess it's hard to manage.

i liked the pacing of the story. it takes place over a couple of days and doesn't seem rushed. the action is intense and even with mike's enhanced vampiric abilities, he's always in a pinch. i'm glad tufo didn't drag out the whole being captured and being prisoners plot line.

overall, an enjoyable and entertaining addition to the series.

If you like the ZF series you'll like this as well

I really liked this book as I do with (nearly) all of Mark Tufo’s books and if you’re a fan of his other books especially the others in the Zombie Fallout series you’re going to like this one. It’s full of Talbotisms, quick one-liners and plenty of Zombie action and gore (and Trip I love that guy). The one problem I have with this book is the ending. I won’t totally give it away but…stop reading if you don’t want some spoilers.




Can’t these people just go back to Maine and live in peace for a little while? I know eventually they do because I read Lycan Fallout, but now you’re adding in more Vamps to the equation? Can’t they just rebuild for a little bit and just relax? Maybe I feel bad for them but when ZF 9 (or Vampire Fallout 1) comes out I’ll be sure to pick it up to make sure that I can follow Mike’s adventures either way.

As always Sean Runnette does a wonderful job with bringing all the story to life with his wonderful narration.
