Publisher's Summary

Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines.
When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.
For it is up to the Smiths and a small band of Marines to somehow create the refuge that survivors seek in a world of darkness and terror. Now with every continent a holocaust and every ship an abattoir, life is lived under a graveyard sky.

Excellent Zombie Apocalypse Tale

Would you listen to Under a Graveyard Sky again? Why?

I've listened to Under a Graveyard Sky 4 times since downloading it. It is an excellent story about a rather unusual family and how they first avoid, then combat the spreading plague that turns intelligent human beings into raving animals

What other book might you compare Under a Graveyard Sky to and why?

I find similarities in this book to many other John Ringo books. Faith is somewhat similar to Cally from his Legacy of the Aldenata series, while her father is similar to all the best parts of both Iron Mike from the Aldenata series and Mike Harmon from the Paladin of Shadows series, both of whom are willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the mission.As for the story itself, I haven't read any other apocalypse books, which are the only ones I can think of to compare this to.

Which character – as performed by Tristan Morris – was your favorite?

I think my favorite of Morris' characters is Steven Smith, that Australian-born naturalized-American citizen who is the father in this series. Morris' command of accents is amazing, and I love to hear it. He can switch from Australian to British to Irish to Russian with amazing alacrity, and is a wonder to hear!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Many parts evoked laughter, while many others brought on tears. Ringo's wit and writing are in top form in this book.

Any additional comments?

To the military listeners: WARNING - Morris spells out the acronyms rather than pronouncing them the way you are probably used to. Be sure you are okay with hearing M-R-A-P and S-S-G before listening. If you have a problem with this, I recommend reading the book yourself.

Awesome read/listen // surprisingly upbeat story

Where does Under a Graveyard Sky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Found these (post apocalyptic) stories to be really engrossing. Mr Ringo has captured the moment. Have been a fantasy/sci-fi reader since Nam, Tolkin // Star Trek, Richardson, and this man does his job well. Have listened to all 4 and truly hate to see this series close.

Have you listened to any of Tristan Morris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Really super to listen to // great voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me want to look around and make my own life better resistant to others whom might wish to intrude.

Any additional comments?

Well done Mr Ringo.
