Publisher's Summary

There are no happily ever afters in the new Undead World. There are no vacations or time-outs or do-overs. There's only the endless daily grind of living or the shockingly horrific fact of death that hangs over every living creature left on the face of the earth. For some, that death lies in a single mistake or a moment of bad luck, or simply in fate. For others, that hard death hounds them day and night, relentlessly. When a huge bounty is placed on their heads, Neil Martin's misfit family is set upon by ruthless bounty hunters. They are pursued by sociopaths, sadistic ex-soldiers, and, of course, the warped Believers of New Eden. There's no refuge, no place of safety, and no shining city on a hill that will take them in. They are outcasts and doomed to flee from their enemies until they're forced to make one great stand.

Grim But Good Zombie Story

What made the experience of listening to The Apocalypse Outcasts the most enjoyable?

Very well narrated.


What did you like best about this story?

Character development, especially that of Jillybean and how a child copes with a world full of zombies and desperate people.


Any additional comments?

Interesting characters with lots of flaws and oddities make this book series more than your average zombie saga. Often it feels that the zombies are background players that frame the story, but don't play a major part other than to create the disaster everyone is coping with. The wide range of characters developed in the prior books struggle to survive and deal with the new normal. Characters aren't sacred in this series and bad things happen to them all.
The bounty hunter character started off strong but became more of a bit player. It would have been interesting to see this guy developed further.
All in all a good listen and well narrated, but start with the first story so you'll have the full character development.

Same ole' story line, but a good addition.

This was the same "let's all go rescue this person that either got kidnapped or chose to leave on their own" story line. The beginning scene was disgusting and I was prepared to get my credit back if it continued. Luckily, it did not. It's going to take a lot for me to believe in a world where after less than a year after the apocalypse, slavers are a common thing, with a headquarters slave trade city (New York,) where the most valued prize slave is a virgin. But luckily, this little scene only last minutes.
America is a large country.......how in the world can a bounty hunter narrow down on a small group of people in a matter of days, in another state.....in another REGION of the country?
I think the author realized what a colossal goof he made with killing off Ram so abruptly in the previous book and he's brought in a new "Ram" look a like. If he wasn't soooo much like Ram, I might enjoy him more. We'll have to see if he grows on me.
Another main character was killed off. I was fine with that, because I really didn't care for this character as of late.
Another new character was killed off, but unless my audiobook skipped, we don't know how. Someone just said "I feel it in my heart" that this person is dead. We needed to see a body, at least.
And lastly, we need more zombies. As the series goes on, there's fewer and fewer zombies.
It was a good addition to the series. The story lines are getting very repetitive. If the author changes it up somehow, it would be more enjoyable. I will probably listen to book 4.
