Publisher's Summary

The people that killed the world were fiendishly clever.
After decades of planning, the contagion was unleashed, and overnight hundreds of millions died and came back as rampaging, undead monsters. The living that had been lucky enough to survive the first day of carnage, lucky enough to be in the right place, and lucky enough that some of them had the skills to survive soon found out there was much more to worry about than just zombies.
In the high desert on the outskirts of Reno, there is an old truck stop frequented by a mix of hard caliber truckers, day tourists, musicians, and travelers. They have survived the chaotic first hours of contact with the undead and now must make their way across the country to a location they believe is safe. Zombies are only the beginning of their troubles as they try to cover the thousands of miles of open road with their hastily armored 18-wheelers. Gunny, a long haul trucker doing one of the few jobs available to him as a disgraced soldier, is unwillingly saddled with the job of getting these survivors to the safe zone. With a motley crew of truck drivers, college kids, veterans, a drug dealer, and a rock star, they are racing the clock to make it before time runs out. The last text he had received from his wife before the cell towers went down told him she was trapped in a high-rise in downtown Atlanta and their son was in detention, stranded in the basement of the school he attended. Gunny just wanted to drop the hammer, steal some guns, and blast his way in to rescue them, but duty called. He had to get these people to safety first, then he could recruit the best of this crew to help him save his family. If they survived the journey.

Yes mindless fun strikes again!

First up... This one is brilliant! I loved it! A return to good old fashioned zombie story. I reckon if this one was narrated by someone like RC Bray it would already be a big hit! Please don't take that as a slight against the narrator Eric A Shelman because Eric did an great job. It is just seems so rare these days to find a good zombie title without it being narrated by one of the big three narrators. 

This story has all the elements in a zombie title I like; Big Trucks with plough type attachments, fast zombies, gun carrying veterans who are on the edge. Wrapped up with just the right amount of humour and tension! In fact I have claimed one of the one liners from this story as my own.

I really hope that there is going to be more in the series, because it was just starting to introduce a deeper element into the story with the epilogue. So please do yourself a favour and listen to the epilogue as well. 

This title is is over 9 and half hours long so it is good value, even if you have to speed the narration up a tad.

I will most definitely be buying the second if there is a second in the series. In fact I would even pre order it... that is saying a lot for a cheap person like me!

I was really looking for a new zombie series to fill the gap now that 'Arisen" series seems to have finished, and that no more Mountain Man will be forth coming. This one in my mind is going to go alongside the other titles which have given me the ability to forget the chaos and drag that life can sometimes bring. It is up there with Z-Burbia and The Undead.

A word of warning peeps, some of the reviews on this title give away a little too much information.

In summary; this fatman is rocking from foot to foot with fat jiggling while holding up two thumbs with a huge smile, saying Heeeeeeeeeey

Eric A. Shelman nails it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Road to be better than the print version?

No! But it complements it and brings the characters to life with the different voices.

Gunny is my favourite. I love his commitment to his fellow war vet's, truck drivers and family.

The scene with Long Dawg, when he does his thing with the gun! Awesome!
