Publisher's Summary

Virulent pockets of plague, first reported in China, break out worldwide and spread with mind-boggling speed. CIA black ops agent Chad Halverson flies to Los Angeles to visit his brother after receiving a call that his brother has been hospitalized after a car accident. Halverson's Boeing 737 crash-lands in an eerie Los Angeles shrouded with an impenetrable haze of smog. But that is only the tip of the iceberg of Halverson's nightmare. Lurking in this mist are legions of plague-infected living dead who are driven by an all-consuming lust for human flesh. Halverson's reunion with his brother must take second place to his own struggle to stay alive.
As civilization crumbles into chaos, it will take all the skills and wits Halverson and his fellow passengers possess for their hunted party to survive in a world overrun with hordes of flesh-craving zombies. Which will pose a bigger threat to Halverson and his ever-dwindling band - their own bickering as they try to organize and defend themselves, their enemies - the living dead, or the new "civilization" of men that is superseding the old?

Really Enjoyed!

After reading some pretty bad reviews regarding this book, I went into it with no expectations, and you know what, I really enjoyed it!! Shocker ;) Don't let the bad reviews sway you, this was an enjoyable listen!

When a flight has to land with no communication between the plane and LAX, the passengers don't know what to expect. They don't expect a place shrouded in fog and seemingly empty though. They can barely see a few feet in front of themselves, but some of the passengers break off, while some head to the airport to see what's happening. While on their way there, they hear moans and screams, just what is going on?? As they arrive at the place, a person seems to jump from the tower, screaming. Their initial thoughts are terrorists in he building, but what they get is something worse.

Who would have thought that a book based in an airport a lot, would grab my attention so much, yet this one did! The plot was relatively fast paced and quite eerie! Anything taking place in a fog is eerie, but add in an abandoned airport, Zombies and an awful camp, and you have a decent read!

All the characters are well written and developed. I liked Halverson a lot. He is capable, smart and a take no prisoner kind of guy. He does his best for his fellow passengers and tries to keep them all alive! There isn't many books out there that make me despise a character as much as this one did, but despise Leamans I did! The man tried his best to become leader and was so arrogant and a down right despicable man! He seemed to do his best to get on the wrong side of every character!

Anyway, this was a really quick read for me, and I look forward to checking out the rest soon. Give these books a go, you won't regret it!

I really enjoyed the narration done by D.G. Chichester. With the amount of characters in this, he did a great job distinguishing each. I hope he is narrating the rest of the series!

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

I just might, because I like a good zombie tale!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zombie Maelstrom?

crash landing at LAX...that would be scary even not in a Zombie Apocalyptic situation!

Which scene was your favorite?

I had a lot of faves in this book.... the landing, the unknown after the landing and how Chad Halverson really stepped up to protect and serve!

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

Yes and No...with these kind of books you have to expect tragedy...

Any additional comments?

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

I first want to say, I am surprised this isn't being more well received..The story is interesting and I was fully engaged...I like the plane crash idea and how we have a real hero in Chad Halverson! If you are a fan of this genre...you will like this book...give it a chance, you wont regret it!!!!
