Publisher's Summary

Survival in Man’s Second Dark Age
Three hundred years after the fall of society, the last fragments of civilization are clinging to life, living in the ruins of the ancient cities in nearly-medieval conditions. Technology has been reduced to legend, monsters roam the forests, and fear reigns supreme. But that is just the beginning...
The wind-borne spores are spreading, disfiguring men and twisting their minds, turning them into creatures that threaten to destroy the townships. Among the townsfolk, political and the religious, dissension is spreading.
Through it all, a mother must protect her son...

HOUSE OF BARREN WOMEN

WOMEN LIE AND MEN DO NOT
Let's get something straight, the rating is not low because of the treatment of women. These were the only two quotes that stuck out to me. The best part of the book is the universe these two have created. It is a bit different, I even like the infected. It is based on a real disease that inflicts insects in, I believe South America. I saw a special on one of the nature channels once and they showed these ants go crazy, become physically deformed and then what looks like a painful death. I found the book very slow. Very little happens, the whole books is a set-up for the series. They spend a lot of time telling us things, little time doing anything. As another reviewer mentions the infected are just background. This had more of a feel of The Handmaid's Tale, than a Zombie book. The whole book takes place over three days. We are told women strip in front of the whole town and are felt up in front of the whole town and we are told that it is humiliating. We don't actually live through it as a woman.

My mind wondered often and I never really felt much empathy for any of the characters and there were no WOW moments. I will not continue the series.

Since this was a collaboration, I worried

I couldn’t wait to get started on The Last Survivors when I found out who the authors were. T.W. Piperbrook and Bobby Adair couldn’t write a bad book if they tried and together, I thought they would be unstoppable. Post-apocalyptic stories are by far my favorite and when you throw zombies into the mix, well, let’s just say I was kind of excited.

I went into this book with absolutely no knowledge of what it was about, other than the book description. 300 years after the end of the world, the few people left on Earth are struggling to survive. People are being turned into monsters and nobody is happy. As I listened to the book, I expected to hear a little more about the spores but I was disappointed. It took awhile for the action to build and I felt the story lacked some much-needed character development. However, Adair and Piperbrook left the ending wide open for the next book in the series and although I wasn’t as blown away by this story as I hoped to be, it has a lot of potential and I am looking forward to the next part.

Since this was a collaboration, I worried that each author’s part would be easy to pick out and I’m happy to say I was wrong. It was hard to determine which author wrote which part and it flowed seamlessly.

The audio quality of The Last Survivors was excellent. The narrator, Sean Runette, speaks clearly and adds the right amount of tension to every scene. I’m sorry to say I had never heard of this narrator before being given the opportunity to review this book, but he impressed me so much, I will definitely be seeking out more of his work.

Overall, The Last Survivors didn’t go where I expected it to go. It was a little slow in spots but was good enough to leave me curious about the next part of the story. If post-apocalyptic stories are your thing, I urge you to give The Last Survivors a try.
