Publisher's Summary

The truth is out there...and it will eat your face.
"Bigfoot is real." That's what primatologist Dr. Sarah Bishop's father told her before his academic disgrace and untimely death.
Now Sarah is eager to restore her father's good name. Survival show host Russ Cloud is just as eager to boost his plummeting ratings. They'll both have a shot at redemption when they find themselves hired by eccentric billionaire Cameron Carson. After a series of his publicity stunts end in spectacular failure, Carson has a plan to redeem his tarnished image: capture a live Sasquatch.
Sarah and Russ join an expedition with an eclectic crew: an Afrikaner safari hunter, a 'roided out former wrestling star, a Shoshone master tracker full of surprises, a heavily tattooed Russian warrior woman, a pair of wise-cracking nerds, and a cute gum-chewing intern with some hidden skills. Will they find Bigfoot?
There's something in the woods...but it's not what they're expecting.

"No one can shift from gore to guffaws like Nick Sullivan!" (Michael Reisig, author of the Road to Key West series)
"Zombie Bigfoot is one of those stories that will stick with me...I would put this up with the adventure greats Preston & Child and David Wood. The narration is really what tops everything off. Nick Sullivan is a veteran audiobook [narrator] with hundreds of titles to his name. And after a few minutes listening to him you quickly know why." (Brian Krespan, Brian's Book Blog)
"Great fun and highly recommended...wonderfully wacky characters." (Bill Pronzini, author of the Nameless Detective series)
"Zombie Bigfoot is a super fun book that moves at a pace that will leave you breathless. The story is everything that I loved about the creature features that I used to watch on the late night horror shows of my youth." (Horror Maiden)
"Sullivan was able to create his bigfoot characters and make them so remarkable and almost believable. For a zombie story, it was incredibly dynamic. Sullivan put a lot of thought into every twist and turn." (AudioBook Reviewer)

Incredibly entertaining

I am willing to bet that most people, after reading the title of this book, will have a certain pre-conceptualised notion of what this book will be about. I know that I did. That was a campy monster fueled undead romp through the woods. With everybody terrified and fleeing from undead bigfoots or is it bigfeet? (I looked it up, it is Bigfoot for singular and plural.)

Well, it was kind of like that, but so, so much more.

Zombie Bigfoot is told from two main storylines, err, perspectives. The humans and the Bigfoot. With more points of view within each.

Sullivan was able to create his bigfoot characters and make them so remarkable and almost believable. And definitely more likable than the humans.

Here is the long and short of it. Years ago a scientist found Skunk Apes in the wild, was able to make contact with them, gain their trust, and ultimately teach them how to communicate. Years later another expedition is sent to find the bigfeet, to prove their existence and other sinister plans. Then there is the alien meteorite that turns living things into zombie-like creatures. Because they can still think and have thoughts.

For a zombie story, it was incredibly dynamic. Sullivan put a lot of thought into every twist and turn of the story. Full of action, mystic, mythology, action, a little bit of love. Listeners will be completely swept away to the Florida swamps and by the end, they will believe that Sasquatches are real.

There was a nice no cliffhanger ending that started the ball rolling for another book, yet also would be a fine standalone story.

Unless you are new to my audiobook reviews, you know my general initial feeling towards author narrators. However, Nick Sullivan, being a narrator first and an author second, was able to pull it off very well. Because of his intimacy with the story, you could tell that he was emotionally tied to every nuance within.

Incredibly entertaining because of Sullivan's words, both written and spoken.

Are you saying they’re some sort of Zombie Bigfoot

"Wait… are you saying they’re some sort of Zombie Bigfoot?"

Zombie Bigfoot is one of those stories that will stick with me. The characters, both human, and bigfoot had so much depth that I wouldn't be surprised if there are more stories that revolve around them. The scenery and scene setting was perfect -- to the point where it felt like Sullivan has been writing adventure novels for years.

It was also one of those hard to pin down stories. I believe that the main genre was Adventure. It had Adventure undertones throughout (looking for a Bigfoot). I would put this up with the adventure greats Preston & Child and David Wood (Dane Maddock & Bones). It had all of the enjoyable elements that I love, but it also added in a ton more. Elements of horror and comedy were also throughout Zombie Bigfoot and done extremely well. One minute I was laughing and the next I was cringing in fear or horror.

The narration is really what tops everything off. Nick Sullivan is a veteran audiobook narrated with hundreds of titles to his name. And after a few minutes listening to him you quickly know why. The narration was perfect. You can definitely tell that Sullivan wrote this book with the intent of recording the audiobook. It was developed perfectly for audio, the scenes and jumps between characters weren't every 2 minutes and were well thought out and explained. Each character had the voice that the author wanted.

In all honesty, I had to take a day to gather my thoughts because I didn't want to write a review that felt like it was complete hyperbole. I was able to tame some of my thoughts down, but honestly, this was just such a great story that I hope that people pick it up based on my review.

My only warning to readers/listeners is that this book does get a little gory from time to time. When the said zombie bigfoot attacks it does NOT hold back. If you're extremely sensitive to overly descriptive death scenes, then you have been warned. But as I mentioned before, a lot of the time only a few paragraphs back I was laughing at different things going on, so the gore to no-gore value is still high.

The funny thing is that this book could have gone numerous different ways. Sullivan could have completely removed the "zombie" aspect of it and it still would have been enjoyable. Sure, it would have changed some of the later interactions between characters, but the story was so well written that it still would have been good.

To Nick: please keep writing. You have a gift -- actually two gifts: you can write a darn fine story that I think could compete with the greats in a few genres AND you can narrate the heck out of a story.

I received a free copy of this audiobook, it has not affected my review in any way.
