  • Doomsday's Child by Pete Aldin
    https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2258408427
    've read a lot of post-apocalyptic and dystopian books and I would rank Pete Aldrin's Doomsday's Child in the top tier with J.L. Bourne's Day-by-Day Armageddon, Keith Blackmore's Mountain Man, and David Simpson's Zombie Road. Not to detract from the very solid plot and on-spot pacing, but what particularly stood out for me with Pete's book was the relationship between his two protagonists, Elliot and Lewis: It was special, it was genuine, and it surprised the hell out of me with how easily it carried the story along with it. I really enjoyed Doomsday's Child, started it before going to sleep, the Kindle the only light on in the bedroom. Next thing I know, my eyes are super tired and it's 3 am. That's how you know a book rocks, when you don't want it to end. I had to force myself to leave off at 90% so that there would be enough to read later that day. Then I was tired all day because I barely got any sleep, but it was definitely worth it because here I am two days later still thinking about the journey that and Elliot and Lewis took. I highly recommend Doomsday's Child.

  • Collateral Damage (Up From the Depths #3) by JR Jackson
    https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34373018-collateral-damage
    I've been enjoying this series, but I truly loved this installment. The author hits all the marks with action aplenty, interesting character interplay, and some really imaginative scenes (the scene at the "market" my favorite from the series). His military background shines through strongly in the constant "gun porn" (lol: the description and use of a variety of interesting weapons) and the level of realistic detail throughout. A novel and a series well worth the time and $$. Five stars.

  • The Orphans: Origins by Mike Evans

    Most zombie books start out just before or just after the outbreak not giving you too much of a back story and go straight to the zombies. Mike Evans does not do that with this book. He gives plenty of back story for the characters and how the outbreak happened, which is a very realistic possibility of how it could happen, if it ever did. I kept telling myself "this is where it will happen", but was wrong almost everytime! Eventually I was right lol. It definitely wasn't predictable or rushed! You get to know each of the characters and what they are like before the outbreak. Don't worry though, there is plenty of zombie action, and it's great! I'm looking forward to the rest of this series! My only constructive criticism is for the narrator. He was very slow and almost boring at times. This book was highly recommend by a friend so I kept going. I hate speeding up a book, but I found 1.2x speed was a huge improvement for this narrator.

  • The Last Plague by Rich Hawkins. Just finished this brilliant novel that tells the tale of abominations created by a plague destroying society. Set in the sw of England this tale, although not strictly zombie, follows a group of friends as they try to get home to their loved ones as humanity falls around them. At times a violent story of survival it is also a heartbreaking look at how fast society reverts to its most base level. 5/5 on Goodreads.
    • Awesome!!
  • Into the Yellow Zone by Lynda Engler

    I'm loving this series so far! I highly recommend listening to book one first! In this book, Isabella and her new mutant husband Malcolm set out on a journey to find a scientist who could possibly make a vaccine to protect humanity. They also seek out other villages to warn them of the military's plans to use the mutants as slaves to clean up the irradiated areas which will also kill the mutants ridding humanity of 2 problems at once.
    Great narration by Ann Bumbak. I'm usually not a fan of the author changing narrators in the middle of a series, but it worked this time. The narrator of book one was great, but the story is from Isabella's point of view, so a female narrator makes more sense.
    I can't wait for book 3!!!

  • Radiophobia by Scott Nicholson

    Excellent post apocalyptic series! One of my favorites! I highly recommend listening to the first series first (After). Next is a continuation of that series. Scott Nicholson is an excellent writer and Kevin Clay is an amazing narrator! I tend to get burnt out on a series if it's too long but that's not the case here! This series has managed to keep me on the edge of my seat wanting more! I can't wait for the next book!

  • Summer of 68 by Kevin Millikin

    I loved the story of the 2 brothers, Jake and Russell. They head out on a fishing trip just as the zombie outbreak starts. This story uses the slow moving, Romero type zombies. It is a more realistic story than most. There are no heroes, and if there are, they will probably die. There isn't always a happy ending. Not in the apocalypse. Great narration by Rick Gregory! He really did an excellent job expressing the fear in these kids!

  • Burnt Sea by Jordan Rivet

    This is a great prequel to the Seabound Chronicles! I was sad to see that series end and was very happy to get this prequel. I loved hearing the back stories of all the characters and the catastrophic event of Yellowstone erupting. Burnt Sea gives me a much better understanding and appreciation of Judith's character. I'd definitely recommend listening to the prequel first since as I listened, I already knew who lived and died. It didn't make it any less enjoyable though. Glad to see Ray Greenley narrating again. He's done a great job throughout the series!
