Publisher's Summary

Because of recent reviews stating editing issues, ARV-3 has been re-edited and revised. The new copy has been uploaded, and is better than ever! Now being made into a short-film by Timid Monster.
The beginning of the end. The Apocalypse. A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after 13 long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild. We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong. Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter. It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it. My name is Abigail Park. I'm 17, and this is my story.

Very good, just not my cup of tea

I listen to a lot of zombie stories; recently there have been a some excellent titles. This one is just as good as any of those. But it just wasn't my cup of tea. This one has a lot more of “boyfriend/girlfriend” issues. To be honest I really dislike listening to this sort of stuff, I really dislike listening to sex scenes particularly when riding on public transport!

Whenever the story line moved away from the teen love relationships it had me gripped, the story quickly sped up and the tension was perfect! In fact the last 2 and half hours of this story was brilliant!

The man character in this one is the female version of the main character Zach from 'Z-14'.
The female narrator did a great job with the main character. But the male voices seemed forced. Not enough to make it painful. If I was thinking about purchasing another book narrated by Erin Moon I would definitely listen to the sample first. I suspect her voice would not be suitable for a story told mainly through a male character.

The speed of the narration was not an issue and I only had to increase the speed to 1.25x This gives you a good 8 hours. Might be important if you watch your credit/per hour ratio.

My buying advice if you like your end of the world zombie style genre told through the eyes of a warrior teenage princess. Then this is a winner. Even if you don't but like it told from this type of perspective, it is still pretty good… it just wasn’t my cup of tea!

Chillingly addictive!

Where does ARV-3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The narrator was engaging, bringing to life one of my favorite series! Definitely on the lookout for more of her readings.


Any additional comments?

OMFG! That about sums it up. This my first taste of Cameo Renae’s writing and she does not disappoint! It has it all from first love, zombies-like creatures, heart-thudding action, all wrapped up in a page turner package.

It’s the end of days. The worst possible scenario has happened; a solar flare pitching the world into utter chaos. A new world without power and nuclear plant meltdowns dousing the world in deadly levels of radiation, killing all wildlife and forcing people to take shelter in underground bunkers. Suddenly, all the doomsday preppers were the hope for humanity’s survival. With the world in a panic and the government without any solution to the disaster, they approved a highly unstable vaccine to shield the radiation with dire side effects.

Seventeen year old, Abigail Park hasn’t seen the sky in thirteen years. The Hive has been the only home she has ever known until now. Underground with fifteen other preppers, she has been waiting for this day forever. With her best friend, Finn and the other families at her side, they plan to go topside to make the thousand mile trek to government safe zone. But nothing could prepare them for what waited for them on the surface. Because the fallout isn’t the scariest thing possible and surviving has only begun.

Cameo’s unique twist on ‘zombies’ is unlike anything you have ever read. It pulls you in from page one and doesn't let go until the end. Even then, you want more! It’s gory, endearing and terrifying. Quite a feat for a dystopian novel but be warned . . .this book will definitely cause a book hangover. There is no putting this book down!
