This tells the story of 3 different characters. We see Colin first. He is in the midst of a robbery when he first sees the Zombies. He is now stuck in a house with rapidly dwindling supplies and no chance of escape. Then there is Sara, a personal trainer who is at work when the outbreak happens. Finally Hank, a school janitor who is in the process of cleaning the school when he sees the Zombies. He phones home and his wife tells him that she will come for him. Hank sets about cleaning the school of the infected while waiting. Each character has his/her own troubles to deal with and each has to try stay alive. The final installment sees all 3 characters come together. Can they all survive?
Now, while I enjoyed this book tremendously, I did feel like I was missing something. Like maybe I started at book 2 instead of 1 because we don't get to see how the outbreak happened. We get no information at all about the where, how, and why. I think if we had that, then this would of been 5 stars.
Character wise. Colin was a bit whiny and annoying. Sara was capable and Hank was great. Each of them has a story to tell and each of them developed throughout. Plot wise, it was fast paced and entertaining. It didn't bring anything new to the genre but it was like reading an old favourite, comfortable and enjoyable.
Ben Kass was clear and concise and I enjoyed his narration. He gave each character their own personalities and I had no problem with seeing who was talking.

Would you consider the audio edition of Z Walkers: The Complete Collection to be better than the print version?
I don't know because I have not read the print edition. However, I always prefer audiobooks because it allows you to close your eyes and immerse yourself in the story.

I really enjoyed this collection of stories. I felt it was a wonderful opening to what could possibly become a great epic adventure through the world of a Zombie Apocalypse. If Luke Shephard decides to write a follow up or even a disconnected continuation of this story or world I will definitely buy it. His character developement felt a little rushed but it was enough to be able to relate to the characters in the story. I am always an advocate of more detail but sometimes in a books like these it would retract from the tempo of the book which I thought was perfect. Overall I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of apocalyptic scenarios and Zombies. Great Book. Thank you.
