Publisher's Summary

The dead have risen, and their hunger for the flesh of the living is insatiable.…
It has been six weeks since the virus engulfed the world. Everyone who was infected died, and then rose again. Governments collapsed, armies fell, and civilizations turned to dust as the human race tore itself to pieces. The living are in danger of becoming extinct.…
Jeff Blaine has witnessed the annihilation of his family and everything that mattered to him. When he steps outside his home for the first time since the world died, he meets Megan, George, and Jason, three other survivors who force him to accept that there may still be a reason to fight and live to see another day. It doesn’t take long for the quartet to stumble into a trap set by a group led by the charismatic Michael. While he promises a safe haven from the undead behind the walls of his makeshift fortress, the loyalty he and his cronies demand may be too high a price for Jeff and the others to pay.
Daylight is fading for humanity.…
When a routine supply run to a nearby town turns deadly and the ghouls walking the street track the living back to their hideout, the mettle of the meager band of survivors will be tested as they are forced to face the onslaught of the undead. Even as they flee, and their world falls deeper into despair, Jeff and the others must find a way to defeat not only the undead, but the hatred that threatens to cripple their souls. Because the only way anyone will survive is if they can find their way beyond the dark.


Audible Editor Reviews

Jim Cooper performs the final, disturbing, and emotionally-charged installment of Patrick D’Orazio’s Dark Trilogy with a growl befitting the bleak, post-apocalyptic world in which Jeff Blaine and his few fellow survivors find themselves. In a time and place where everything that can go wrong has, nothing goes as planned, beginning with the supply run that reveals the group’s hideout, provoking an onslaught of the undead. Caught between two gruesome fates, Blaine and the others face the zombie who wish to gnaw them from the outside while struggling with the hatred that threatens to consume them from within.

great ending to the series

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes. the story is short, but full of hold onto your seat action. i couldn't stop listening. i wanted to see how the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks they got outta there!

Any additional comments?

book 3 picks up where book 2 ended- with the group of survivors fleeing the hoard of zombies in an rv. if you listened to book 2 and are hesitant to download book 3, DON'T BE!

book 3 is non-stop action from beginning to end. i won't give away what happens, but there was a satisfying ending for all of the characters, especially george.

so if you made it through book 2, book 3 is worth its price. it's full of fleeing, fighting, chilling scenes of characters dying, settling old scores, and re-uniting with loved ones. oh yeah! and lots of zombies. no character is safe! i like authors who have the gravitas to off a character.

my main caveat is i really wish the author had combined all 3 books into one 1 book, but that's my 2 cents. overall, it was a fun series to listen to.

Much Better

This was much better than the previous book, with a faster pace more action and just a better story. No where near as good as the first book though.

The RV they tried to get away in crashes and everybody separates for various reasons and horrible things happen as they try to survive the marauding zombies in the city. I'm not too keen in children in stories because they usually are just a burden and don't help out, and this story is no different. Of course they whimper and cry, attracting the hoard. Didn't mind how things turned out though.

The epilogue with George was just great, think I liked that part more than anything.

A satisfying conclusion, but I will miss Megan and Jeff and wish the author would continue with their story. Preferably minus the children unless they have helpful roles like Jason had in the first book.
