Publisher's Summary

Dan was an average loser on the brink of a meltdown. His rampant alcoholism and drug addiction had turned his life into a chaotic mess, and nothing seemed to ever go right for him. Then, one morning, he awakens to find that the world around him has fallen apart. Earth has passed through the tail of a mysterious comet that scientists call Wormwood, and a strange, toxic mist has descended from the sky. People everywhere begin dying off in record numbers, and those who have survived seem to have completely lost their minds or have walled themselves up in their homes.
Amid the chaos, Dan has to get it together and use everything he has learned in his life just to survive. With his addictions controlling his every decision, he will have to fight his inner demons if he is to live through Wormwood Dawn.

Enjoyable Post Apocalyptic listen.

Dan is trying to battle his alcohol and drug addiction but is failing miserably. He decides to drive to town to get more booze. On his way he notices a weird fog all around, he figures it's nothing to worry about and keeps going. While in town, he sees people acting extremely weird so high tails it home. Just what is going on? When he finds out the truth, it's not only alcohol or drugs that will kill him!!

This was actually a really good listen. It's not a blood and gore kind of Zombie book, it focuses more on the characters and their survival then it does on the Zombies. Dan, while a very relatable character, is hard to like at times. All he wants is his booze and drugs yet he still manages to do what's needed. Let's just say that for the most part, I liked him. He's a normal guy just trying to survive.

I liked the plot. I liked the fact that it wasn't a virus that caused the outbreak, but the tail end of a comet. You can just imagine what would be in space dust so this is believable. It's also entertaining enough that I kept turning the pages to see what happens next. Being a serial, you know going into it that it's going to be short, but this was surprisingly sufficient as a story. It actually felt longer than it was.

In all, an entertaining and engaging read. I think i might wait till the serials are bunched together though because I'm impatient to see what happens!

I enjoyed the narration. Clifford Edwards did a really good job and I liked how he did the radio voices etc.

*I received a copy of this for review. Tis in no way affects my thoughts.*

If you could sum up Wormwood Dawn in three words, what would they be?

Interesting good story!

What other book might you compare Wormwood Dawn to and why?

It falls in the post apocalypse zombie does have a unique twist to it..but there is many out take your pick!

Which character – as performed by Clifford Edwards – was your favorite?

Dan..he is the main one...but I do like his friend Drew too!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not moved me so much, But Dan is a good guy...underneath the pill popping and can tell there is still a kind person...yes he does have to kill in self defense...but I dont think he would do it in malice....

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Dan wakes up as normal one day, goes out to get more booze and pills and BAM...the whole world goes to hell....he makes it home to see reports of people going rabid....the military being replaced by a militia of sorts and animals turning into monsters! His Friend Drew makes his way to him and together they hunker down to survive what looks like the end of the world....

Really cool twist on the zombie genre and I totally will move on to book 2!
