Publisher's Summary

Beaten and battered in mind and body, the fugitives limp west, unaware that the human world is fading all around them, unaware that the last remnants of the goodness of man is being ground under the heel of evil at every turn. When confronted with that evil, fight or flight are their only choices, however, Neil's small group is hamstrung, forced to take on more refugees who come to them empty-handed, unarmed, and hungry. Neil is faced with the disturbing prospect of guiding them across 2,000 miles of zombie-plagued land, only to stumble at his first hurdle: the mighty Mississippi has become a river of death and, like the fabled River Styx, the only way to pass is to pay the river man his fee. His price: warm bodies.

Jillybean!

great narrator!! of all the zombie apocalypse audible titles I've listened to (there are a lot of good ones) , this series has posibly the best story and certainly the best character development. These apocalyptic stories are often more about the human condition and response to crisis than they are about the "horror and gore" and Meredith has really nailed it with this series, you can't help but root for these characters and their struggle.

Same story line

This is where I'm taking a break in the series. I actually already own the next 2 books, but it's been the very same story line since book 2. Someone gets kidnapped or is held hostage and the others have to save him or her. It's the same story over and over. In this book, someone gets kidnapped, they're rescued. Then others are kidnapped and they have to be rescued. Then yet again, more are kidnapped and they must be rescued. Then the book ends as one group is rescued, but the others are AGAIN held hostage. (There were so many kidnapping and rescues that I honestly lost count) You have to get the next book to see how the current hostages are rescued. At this point, I just don't care.
If Grey is the new Ram, give him some cajones and stop letting him wither every time the main bad guy tells him "if you don't give yourself up, I'll kill everyone." The whole "let's go talk to the bad guy and even though he's a slaver, torturer, rapist, sells babies to pedophiles, etc., I'm sure he'll be honest and keep his word........oh, he lied to us last time and took us hostage to torture us, but this time he'll keep his word and not capture us.......oh shucks, he took us hostage again and we escaped, but THIS TIME he'll keep his word, so let's go back and discuss this with him again" story line is just STUPID.
Oh, and there's very very little zombie action in this book.
Narrator did a superb job, as always.
And lastly, I love the new female character. I hope she sticks around.

10/10 the best series you will ever listen to!

Never have I read such an amazing book series like the apocalypse series, the story is so different from your typical zombie stories, they are definitely by far the best books I've ever read and I can't recommend them enough. Amazing work from the author. Great story lines twists and cliff hangers when reading/listening, I'm checking audible every few days to see if book 5 is on there yet, I hope it's soon as I'm going crazy needing to find out what happens next!
