Publisher's Summary

From the universe of the Until the End of the World series. (Note: The City Series can be heard before or after the Until the End of the World series)
Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in.
Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier and likelier, and finding his sister may be his only prospect for survival - if he can make it home.
Sylvie doesn't need more than food, water, and shelter. Eric wants only to find his sister. But sometimes what we think we need isn't what we need at all, and what we find is more than we expected.

Feel Good Zombie Stories!

Any additional comments?

Loved it! If you are new to this author, stop! Check out her trilogy + novella, Until The End of The World. Mordacious is a spin off of that series. It is not essential that you read Until the End of the World first to enjoy this book, but I recommend you do.

Do you like zombie / survival stories – but hate to get bogged down with endless tragedy and after tragedy? I love apocalyptic novels, but I am often turned off by plots that take the reader down a dark hole (evil humans, society at its worst, characters spending the entire book trying to find a way out of a hopeless and ugly scenarios). While Fleming’s novels include all these elements, her books center on the dynamics of the survival group. The plot is centered on her characters, their struggles, and growth – that happen to be in the middle of a zombie apocalypse.

Fleming wrote the first “Feel Good” Zombie story I have ever read – and it was such a breath of fresh air! That is, when my heart wasn’t racing from fearing for my beloved characters well being and safety.

Narration: I am a narrator snob. I have loved Luke Daniels since “The Druid” series… he does a fine job here. I am new to Therese and thought she was a little better fit for the character she’s playing. The story is told from two points of view, so that is why we get a male and female narrator. When the two characters are together, the narrators get to play off each other, the narration really shines. I saw one negative review of the narration and I honestly don’t know what they are talking about. The narration is great.

Can't wait for the next installment!

- Wendy "To All My Favorite Narrators: You are the voices in my head..."

This book was so satisfying!

What made the experience of listening to Mordacious the most enjoyable?

I previously read it before I listened to the audiobook. I think I enjoyed reading it better, but I still loved listening to it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sylvie and Eric were probably tied. They are both so funny and witty and i obviously love what's happening between them. Sylvie isn't afraid to stand up for herself and her friends. She doesn't realize the impact that she has on people. She thinks she isn't worth anyone's friendship, but she doesn't realize that anyone she meets loves her. Eric gets her. Knows when to push her and when to back off. He gives her time to adjust to him and he respects her personality traits.

Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels and Therese Plummer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


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

Sarah has a way with words. She could write the dictionary and I would still listen to it all in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

If you haven't read the prequel series to this, you are missing out. It's called "Until the End of the World" and it has three books. They are so phenomenal. I have re listened and re read probably a dozen times. Do yourself a favor ;) This series is setting up to be the same. I love her writing. And her plot twists.
