Publisher's Summary

Survive the infection! Survive the infected.
Book 1: A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried and frightened.
But Zed Zane is oblivious. He needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride, and heads to his mom's house for a lunch of begging, again.
But something is wrong. There's blood in the foyer. His mother's corpse is on the living room floor. Zed's stepdad Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan's yellow teeth tear at Zed's arm, but he grabs a knife and stabs Dan 37 times, or so the police later say.
With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart, and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him.
Book 2: Slow Burn: Infected picks up the story of Zed, Murphy, and Jerome where Slow Burn: Zero Day ended.
All three have been infected but have not succumbed to the most pernicious symptoms of the virus. Nevertheless, their band of fearful survivors, have ostracized them.
Back on the street, with weapons to defend themselves but little food in their packs, they embark on a search for Murphy's family while following a rumor of safe haven in the form of a doomsday bunker in east Austin.
But the world is more hazardous than they know. They expect violence from the voracious infected, but they have harsh lessons to learn about the uninfected. And humans to support the infrastructure of modern civilization, they find that danger comes in many forms.
Book 3: Zed is saying goodbye to one friend and pressing forward.

Great story, but the narrator has kidney stones

Would you listen to Slow Burn: Box Set 1-3 again? Why?

If someone else narrates. EVERY statement is over stated, female voices are... not, ethnic voices are stereotypically degrading. All in all, great story line, really bad narration.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jason Damron’s performances?

No thank you

A Must Read!!!

What made the experience of listening to Slow Burn: Box Set 1-3 the most enjoyable?

It was great to listen to one of my favorite zombie series, added a new element to the reading experience.

Which scene was your favorite?

The escape from the gymnasium in book 1.

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

This book made me laugh in some scenes and caused me to really contemplate the human psyche in other areas.

Any additional comments?

I'm not usually a fan of zombie books, zombie films yes, this series is different than most zombie series. There are zombies, survivors, and in-betweeners, this book really examines the psyche, emotions, actions of all three elements to the point where it's almost realistic.

Decent Story but the Narratio is unbelievably bad

Would you try another book written by Bobby Adair or narrated by Jason Damron?

I doubt it very much. Would avoid the Narrator like the plague

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I like the fact it was set in the immediate hours, days of the outbreak. It puts you in that position.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jason Damron?

Sean Runnette. He worked on all the Mark Tufo books and was amazing. Also loved James Foster who worked on Adrian's Undead Diaries

Did Slow Burn: Box Set 1-3 inspire you to do anything?

Just to check the reviews of the narrators more before committing to use a credit

Any additional comments?

I love this genre so ive listend to many of the best known books covering this topic. I am finding it increasingly hard to find real gems. The best way to describe the narration in this book is to imagine the most serious voice you can talking about vengeance and rage, all angry and sharp. Then imagine that voice all the way through the book. The characters could be talking about butterflies and rainbows but the voice would be the same angry serious tone no matter what the sentence was. It would be funny if it was not so annoying. Really struggling to Finnish.

very cliched zombie story

This is a story that works around cliche characters and storyline which is peppered with hyperbole and oh no not again storylines. I perservered for a while but could not finish it.
