Publisher's Summary

A Message from The Author
Writing The Undead is a humbling experience. I am eternally grateful to the readers and listeners for the incredible support you always show.
Dan Morgan superbly narrated Parts 1 to 10, but unfortunately he was not able to continue. To my delight, the wonderfully talented Joe Jameson has now taken the series on. His range and skills are superb.
I am aware of the feedback about the voice of one of my characters, Dave. If this change has upset your listening experience then I can only apologise, but both Joe and I, and everyone at Audible, have listened to the points you made and take them very seriously. It is a wonderful thing to have such responsive fans, so willing to listen and work to make it better, plus the interactive nature of the series means you the listener can speak out and say what you like and don't like, otherwise how would we know?
We've got some cracking days ahead of us. Some real stonking rip-roaring storylines to come and both Joe and I can only hope you'll stay with us on this journey.
Take care,
RR Haywood.
It is the morning after the storm. Thick fog covers everything. In the stifling, claustrophobic atmosphere, Howie and his group head out for supplies.
Skirmishes and tense fights take place and there are messages left in blood at key sites: 'he's coming'. As the day progresses, Howie becomes increasingly darker in thought, and more demanding of his team. By the end of the day they have discovered a munitions factory, but can Howie hold it together?

Just get better and better!

I find myself asking the question. ‘Why would I review book number 11 in a series which is not yet complete?’ This series for me continues to get better! The more I get to know the characters, the more I find myself spurting my coffee out in laughter at some of the antics of the unlikely heroes! I am fast running out of clean shirts.

R.R. Haywood has done an excellent job at character development but unlike so many authors who excel at character development. R.R. Haywood has equally excelled on the development of the story line. This is not just some mindless zombie tale! It is a well thought out, well developed story which keeps me coming back for more, the perfect blend of tension and humor.

The first in the series was good but was nowhere near my top 5 zombie stories. However, it has with each new new one in the series it has sky rocketed up the list. It is now easily in my top 3, and one of those 3 is just there because it was the book that got me hooked on the zombie genre (thank you Keith C Blackmore).

The only criticism I have of this one and it is only minor, but I have to mention it, just in case some might think I was paid or biased in some way. This one has a little too much ‘boyfriend girlfriend’ type tension… it may just be me… but I don’t think in this sort of situation I would even be thinking along those lines.

Once again the Dan Morgan does an excellent job narrating multiple characters. I increased the speed to 1.25x not because it was slow but because I couldn’t get enough of the story. There is no problem at all with listening to it at 1.25x speed. This is good news for those of you who are just like me ‘so broke you don’t have two coins to rub together’, the dollar per hour listening equation is not greatly affected by narration speed. 12 hours of listening pleasure is such a surprise with so many titles in this genre now days going for 8 hours or less of late.

The FatMan totally approves of this one! Two fat thumbs raised and a massive grin is the official rating!

Different does not equal bad...

Any additional comments?

I love that RR Haywood follows "a logical path" in some ways. It's predictable only to keep the story familiar and relatable. But then he adds the genius...he includes unexpected and realistic conflict between main characters! Its been like this for almost the entire series and I love it! *** Give Joe Jameson a chance *** Initially I was not happy with the change in narrator...then I read that Dan Morgan refused to continue this series. Joe Jameson stepped up to continue one of my favorite audio series of all time, so I felt that I owed it to Howie & Co. to start fresh and give Joe a chance. By the end of this book, I realize that Joe is an incredibly talented actor! His voices for EVERYONE are better! IMO, Dan Morgan's Dave was the only voice better...That said, Joe's "Dave" is far more realistic given who Dave is. We got used to Dan's more human sounding Dave, which made him so likeable. More great news: Joe is such a pro that he has taken the feedback and made some changes to Dave's voice going forward.

Please give Joe a chance and let the story continue!Ultimately, another great addition to the series! Enjoy!
