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.

Great Entertainment

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Definitely worth a credit!! If you don't let yourself get wrapped up around the "details" ...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Under a Graveyard Sky?

This is not your typical "Z" story. The virus is hopefully just very imaginative fiction but the backstory detailing the delivery method, transmission vector, and official and unofficial actions leading up to the bridges coming down...was crafted very well. It built the post Z world that the Smith family is left to deal with.

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

The narrator does especially good work delivering Faith's lines considering their absurdity when applied to "our" reality .... But I must say, since I have listened to this series twice...His performance of all the characters is highly crafted.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If you are left to survive in this post apocalyptic world...remember to, Keep Faith Alive...

Any additional comments?

Faith is a complete stretch but if you disregard the absurdity of her age in relation to her abilities....she rocks!

A great new series by John Ringo

Any additional comments?

Fast paced action, some great laughs, very likeable characters, military details and some clever science.

Will definitely be enjoyed by anyone who liked the Paladin of Shadows, Troy Rising or Legacy of the Aldenata series.

Great Book :)

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the principle that other than the usual zombie killers the unusual can be a hero too.

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


Any additional comments?

I read comments and other reviews and decided against getting the book but had a lull in other books so thought why not give it a go. I am glad i did as really enjoyed it. If we believe in zombies then why can't we believe a 13 year old can deal with them? I enjoyed the story and enjoyed the hero was a girl :) why not ..... 5 stars from me

Not for Aussies.

Good story, main character has worst attempt at Aussie accent ever. Probably bearable if you aren't Australian. Also dad being pronounced da is driving me nuts.
