Publisher's Summary

Good and evil play their game to determine whether humanity gets a second chance, and their pawns are the living and the dead. ALPA and Westfield have formed a strong alliance that keeps both settlements safe and growing. Adrian has even found time to discover a new love with Mallory. All is well. But when evil plays the game, it plays for keeps. The greatest move of all will use a piece very close to Adrian. When Adrian is betrayed by someone he loves, the whole world may suffer the consequences of his wrath. Book Five of the AUD epic brings a new vision of the apocalypse.
In "Providence" and "Dream a Little Dream", good and evil will have their say, and in "A Traitor's Death", Adrian's will to go on might be shattered forever. Featuring a foreword by Kirk Allmond, author of What Zombies Fear.

Continuation of a great series

First and foremost, this is a review of the fifth book in a series. Please do yourself a favor and listen to those first as this review may contain spoilers to them.

I have already written a lot about what makes Adrian’s Undead Diary Book such a great series, and I am happy so say that Wrath (Book 5) does not disappoint.

I think this is the book that I was told will bring me to tears, well, it didn’t. Maybe I am such a jaded person and listening to countless zombie audiobook has totally desensitized me. However I think I know where the point that this would have happened and, because you have listened this far you are invested in all of the characters, it was brutal.

I really got scared when the book started to add a strange spiritual, almost religious, line to the story. Often time this can ruin thing. It did not. Good versus evil, the devil and his minions (the zombies) against God and his singular warrior (Adrian). I must have missed all of the clues in the previous books.

Sadly I cannot say much about this installment as it is too easy to give stuff away, and if you have read the other books you have probably already read or are going to read this one. Yes, this series is the fun and good.

Philbrook has figured out the secret to successful stories. Make the characters seem so real, so unforgettable, so likeable or lovable, so hateable, that people have no choice in the matter of buying all your books.

Pair that with a narrator that gives his heart and soul to his performance, like James Foster does and you have an instant hit within this genre.

If for some reason you have listened to the other books in this series and have been humming and hawing about continuing on with the story, not sure why one would even hesitate, do you self a favor and grab this one, devour it and pace back and forth until the next book is released on audio.

Taken to another level!

I love this series, each one continues to improve. 'Wrath' in my view is the stand out in the series, it moves a lot faster, and it ties a lot of the story line together. The use of ‘one liners’ which relate to earlier story lines just brings back the story fresh to mind. For example, ‘hurting my big toe’ is meant to help you recall the great pushing poo down the drain story!

Other characters play a far more important role than they did in the earlier books. The way some of the detail with the back story comes together is brilliant. We really are heading for a great climax in the series.

The narration is good, I only sped this one up a tad to 1.25x Which means you could, if you tried fit this one into one day of listening pleasure.

After the last in the series I was scared the supernatural good/evil God/Satan thing was going to ruin this series. But no it certainly did not. I just loved the interaction between the characters and the spiritual/supernatural (whatever you want to call it).

I do find it strange writing a review for a 5th in a series, because if you have made it through all 4 than you know how good the series is, you don’t need a review. If you haven’t listened to the earlier one’s you normally wouldn’t just read the review of the 5th book. But if by some chance you haven’t listened to the series you could just purchase this one (it is that good). But you would be missing out on so much, do yourself a favour purchase them all and set yourself a week to do nothing but listen to this series and then do what I will have to do rock back and forth in the corner and wait for the next!
