I just received the physical copy in the mail and haven’t yet had a chance to read it. Currently I’m doing mundane stuff so this was great to listen to while doing that.
I loved the narrator, really loved her voice as it was easy to listen to and didn’t grate on your nerves like some voice. I will definitely listen to more of her narrations.
Loved the book and will listen to the others I haven’t got around to listening to just yet.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. I enjoyed the characters - and was pleased for a change that these were shoot instantly people. As a semi prepper myself I could relate to the people and marvel at their preparations.
I like that the preppers looked out for Grams group and then when... well, you’ll have to listen to it yourself.

The virus, I did feel that it’s similar to the here and now but it seemed like it was fast acting.

Wren where have you been!!

Wren finally makes an appearance! That girl would have to be my favourite. So excited for her finally to make an appearance.
They are right, they need to recruit people to do specific jobs.
I’ve loved all of the books - hanging for the last one.
If you’re on the fence about this series get down and get the books - like all of them cos you’ll want to listen to the next once you’re finished with one.

Surely that’s not the end-is it?

Okay if you’ve got this far then you’ve clearly read the others (I hope so anyway).
Now I’m not a big one for spoilers but if you know they took out the madman fry in the last book then you know the compound was left without leadership. And honestly I didn’t think they could have a leader more deranged then fry yet well here we are. He’s worse! More deranged if that’s such a thing.
With a modified zombie now out well isn’t that a bugger.
Anyway, finally we have come across Wren from the end of everything but still no Robyn. And she’s apparently been in Safe Haven for some time.
I can’t wait for more.

Fry is absolutely insane but you can’t do all that stuff and not be a little insane. There’s a little more info about the raiders in this book. It even has you breathing a sigh of relief by the end of the book. But surely that’s not the end of it. No, it’s not.
I have to say, with all the old time weapons used in this it just goes to show that it would absolutely be possible to defend yourself and an area if you don’t have guns. I really loved this book. Everything that happened - it’s all fast paced but it’s not if that makes sense. Not once listening to it did i think have I missed something. I love the narrator Kim Bretton and I am now a firm fan of Christopher Artinian. And the fact that it’s in the same world as the end of everything is great. I’m off to download the next book but you know what you should do don’t you? That’s right get this one and start listening!

Fast paced, great foundation and build up

I was recommended this series after I’d read all it the end of everything to date. After listening to the epilogue at the end makes me glad I’ve already downloaded the next book.
Now, to start. I have to say I was not expecting that.
Also, I’m not one to give away spoilers in reviews. I hate reading a booking and the reviewer tells you everything so that reading the book isn’t necessary.
So on that note, if you’re in the fence about this series get down and start with book one okay. Because book 2 is a whirlwind without you feeling like you’re behind somehow.
The author Christopher Artinian knows how to weave a tale, how to develop characters and how to pull out surprises.
Basically listen to this series - or read (I’ve also got all the ebooks to date) - it’s totally worth it and you won’t regret it!

Superb Series

Eventually this series will come to an end and that’s going to be a sad day. I’m really enjoying the story of the bond sisters Robyn and Wren have forged in this new zombie infested world.
There are a couple of things I particularly love about this series
1. The main characters are female
2. It’s not set in America (only because everything thing post apocalyptic and zombie related seems to be born over there)
3. Family is everything
Wren and Robyn, or Bobbi as Wren calls her, are doing their best to survive in this new world where a wrong move can result in the darkness taking over.
I love that even though Bobbi is older she takes her lead from Wren who uses her book smarts to get them out of jams and improves their chances of survival.
Bobbi sounds like your typical 17 year wanting to sleep most of the day away and grumbles profusely at Wren or whoever if she’s got to get up but she does it anyway.
Christopher Artinian was recommended to me by another author I read who writes zombie post apocalyptic stories - great ones at that.
One I started book one in the series it didn’t take long before I’d devoured each book since - I have ebook as well as audible versions - I’ve bought each ebook and the audible versions to go with.
I love how the author has developed Wren and Bobbi. I love his imagination.
Anyway if you haven’t read this book, or heaven forbid you haven’t started the series please please do yourself a favour and get onto them. Each ebook is in KU but trust me you’ll want these books for your own collection.

I have had this short Audio clip for quite some time, so long in fact I can’t remember how long.
I listened to this while I cooked dinner and pottered around in the kitchen. I honestly could see the scenes as though watching a movie it was so vivid. That Alice was honestly so freaking creepy. I won’t give anything away but I have to say why the heck would anyone in a zombie apocalypse go into a hospital on their own? Especially after they didn’t stake it out for a while! This infuriated me but you know it takes all types. Anyway, great story and it doesn’t go as long as it says - the last 37 ish minutes is the start of another story which was great, I’m off to find it.
Enjoy this one 🙂

I could not stop listening to this book. Bought the next book in the series already so I can just keep listening. I love Wren and Bobbi and the scene with Susan had me laughing out loud too. I feel like I’m part of this somehow, I’m wincing and laughing and holding my breath along with them. He story is very well written and thought out. When I find a series like this I devour them, I’m very much looking forward to the next book.
Enjoy this book - this series - for yourself :)
