Publisher's Summary

When the USS McClusky (FFG-41) was overrun by the dead, Machinist Mate First Class Jackson Creed, and Marine Sergeant Joel "Cruze" Kelly, were forced to abandon the ship and take their chances in San Diego.
Now they are stuck in a city that has been completely overrun with zombies, and as the days go by, they must range farther and farther away from "fortress" in their search for supplies.
Relying on military training, guts, and pure force of will, the two of them will face a nightmare world that is intent on killing them one bite at a time.

I've just hit the jackpot! Three in a row! Three great zombie stories in a row. First there was "Dark Recollections: Adrian's Undead Diary, Volume 1" then there was "The Undead Situation" and now "Z-Risen:Outbreak". All three were a return to the boyhood enjoyment of reading batman and Robin comics’ books... you know the "bam zap boff whack" sort of stuff. Now I know I'm older and more mature… but wow! I loved the mindless action. These sorts of stories make me feel young again!

If you like to get a longer listening time per credit, then please take into consideration the narrator of this story speaks slowly. This story is easily listened to at 1.5x speed without any complaints!

The only negative I have with the story is that it didn’t end the way I was hoping. Don’t worry I won’t spoil it for you.

In conclusion, this is the type of book you listen to if you want to be entertained while taking the long commute to work without getting over involved with complex plots or intense emotional feelings. It is the type of story every stressed out not going anywhere type person (me) can enjoy to forget about everything.

Buckle up because there's no slowing down with this story! Navy machinist Jackson Creed has been floating through his Navy career doing the bare minimum, that comes to an abrupt end when a virus quickly overtakes the crew onboard the USS McClusky. Jackson has the good fortune to run across Marine Sergeant Joel Kelly and together they manage to make it off the ship only to discover San Diego hasn't been spared the outbreak either.

Their only mission is to find supplies and stay alive, and try to make it north, they meet many characters good and bad along the way, this book has it all humor, heartbreak, suspense, in other words, it's perfect!

Todd Menesses narrates and I'm still in awe of his ability to voice so many different characters. He definitely has a part in making this a 5-star read!
