Audible Editor Reviews

Cyrus V. Sinclair cared only about his ferret, Pickle; candy; killing zombies and crazies; and, above everything else, himself. Then Blaze entered his life and - at the end of the first of Eloise Kapp’s "Undead" trilogy - left it. Kevin T. Collins brings a witty, sardonic voice reading to his performance of Siinclair, the "reformed" sociopath who heads from the safety of his fortress in an anguished, desperate, and (sometimes humorous) extremely gory quest to reconnect with the only person he has ever loved…again, besides himself.

Cyrus V. Sinclair, the V stands for 'very good'

What I liked about the first book still hold true in this second instalment: The mindless fun! The dark sense of humour of the main characters and the action...

This time round, Cyrus V Sinclair battles of all things ‘being normal’. It would seem that the zombie plague has finally brought out the normal in Cyrus.

This book feels more mature than the previous, by that I think it is takes itself a bit more serious than the first. Personally, I like the zombie genre because of the lack of seriousness… I like the comic book style violence and humour albeit a bit dark. I’m not in for lessons of self-awareness from this sort of story. It is just a personal thing and shouldn’t deter the listener from another instalment in the life of Cyrus V Sinclair. The ‘V’ stands for Virtuous. I wonder if the new ‘virtuous’ Cyrus thing just took me by surprise? If there is another one to add to the series, I do hope the V returns to ‘vile’ and ‘violent’ it suited him better.

Nevertheless I enjoyed the story greatly and once again the narration was brilliant! 1.25x speed is the sweet spot for listening and once again it is the type of story I found myself wishing to listen to in one sitting.

My buying advice is ‘yes, another one worthy to be in the library’.

If you like this sort of story I would also recommend:

Mountain Man series by Keith Blackmore
ZBurbia series by Jake Bible
Andrian’s Undead Diary series by Chris Philbrook

It has been worth the wait

The Undead Haze picks up approximately one year after the brutal end of The Undead Situation, the ending that I thought was a joke, because it made me want the next book so badly. At that time I don’t even know if there were plans for this sequel or not. This audiobook is all about Cyrus wanting to find Blaze who was surprisingly separated from him at the end of the first audiobook. I missed the original feeling that Cyrus gave me, because in this book he was preoccupied with his mission of finding Blaze and because of this much of his sciopahicness was gone. This audiobook started out with a bang of an encounter with a gang of cannibals and brought much of what I wanted, I only wish there were more. Now don’t get me wrong, Knapp despite changing Cyrus’ focus, still created a wonderfully original and creative continuation of a story that needed closure. I will be looking for the next audiobook in this series, in fact more from Knapp in general, and hopefully it will not be as long of a wait as this one was.

Kevin T. Collins is not your typical or maybe stereotypical is better, narrator. He does not have the overly deep and polished voice, he does not rely solely on the the written book to carry you mind through the torment. The Undead Situation was my first experience listening to Collins, he had me hooked, and I hate to say it but this is only my second time giving him a listen and almost regret it. Collins, in my opinion, did over half of the work making Cyrus successful, sure there was a great foundation to start with from Knapp but Collins pushed it over the edge. He has a way of jarring you with his ability, that make every instance within the audiobook knock the wind right out of you.
