Publisher's Summary

Carnage is now a number-one best seller in Dystopian Science Fiction, number one in War and Military Action Fiction, and an Amazon overall Top 100 best seller.

Alpha team looks the devil in the eye.

After recovering Patient Zero, Alpha must escape Africa to end the ZA once and for all. But they can feel the hot breath of a reinforced and vengeful Spetsnaz team on their necks - and there can be no escaping the reckoning of an ultimate sniper showdown between Ali and Vasily, and an incomparably brutal iron-cage Texas death match between Predator and Misha. For the first time, all the teams will come together and must fight as brothers for any chance of making it back to Britain. And only one thing is certain - not everyone is walking away from this one.

One Troop rallies against decimation and defeat.

After rescuing Aliyev, One Troop is pinned down in Red Square between a surging singularity and the merciless killers of Spetsnaz Alfa Group. They're about to lose their second aircraft, they still don't have the zombie-killing MZ, and the clock is ticking down on their pinhole of escape. Only the most vicious and desperate gambit can give them a chance of saving London, not to mention themselves - but Jameson refuses to fail.

The crew of the Kennedy battles back.

With the bridge and most critical stations held by the world's deadliest maritime commando force and Dr. Park pinned down by a smash-mouth battle and last stand in the ship's hospital, time is running out for the shell-shocked and outgunned crew of the JFK to fight back. The ultimate heroism and sacrifice of everyone from storekeepers all the way up to Commander Drake himself will be required to fight their way back from the brink....

Defiance. Valor. Consecration. Carnage.

Addictive and very well presented.

Sometimes a little predictive story, but the author works hard to keep you on the edge of your seat. Just love RC Bray's narration. Top job, mate. Love your work. Keep it up. I almost exclusively go for books you narrate, as you present so well. I bet you could make the worst books sound hugely entertaining.

Pred needs some serious counselling

Another fantastic action packed chapter in my favourite series by far ever. Amazingly read by Mr Bray. Great characters in action packed set pieces. My only gripe is I wanted to see how London was fairing. I simply cannot wait for the last instalment.

It was great! Really fun listening and once again I find myself utterly mentally exhausted by all the twists and turns at the end of the story. Can't wait for book 13!!!

repetitive and uninspired

I really had a hard time finishing this one. So many of the fights were so drawn out and repetitive that I got bored and just tuned out until there was an advance in the plot.

very good series

finally some of the bad guys die and some of the good guys too. having people who always survive everything to live on to the next book starts to get really annoying. only complaint of the series.

played out storyline

This series started out as one of the best ZA storylines written. Now it's less about Zs and more about impulsive non-tactical battles between US and Russian forces. I'm mititary, grew up in military family... this narrative is just fluff; feels like the author is extending a played-out storyline.

Loved the earlier stuff but the last couple of books are just rewriting the same dramstic arcs and conflicts over and over.

Not the best book in series

Performance was great as usual but I felt this book was full of fluff and too much “unrealistic” actions as compared to the rest of the series. Not to spoil, but there comes a point when, even in a zombie apocalypse fiction, that something is clearly not believable.

My favorite series going!

I am an old army Ranger. Guess it might be why I like this series so much. The razing and being part of a team motivated and going through the same crap brings back what I miss. I enjoy the zombies, can't wait for next book always. When main characters die is a bummer but if they didn't it would be like James Bond you know they are alway going to survive.

Gloriose enim magnificatus est ridiculum!

Please forgive the undoubtedly poor Latin translation but this is so genuinely "Gloriously Ridiculous" that it felt like it needed something more grandiose as a title! This is yet another massively high octane episode of the Arisen series. A book that lasts twice as long as the events it describes and yet feels like it is running at absolutely breakneck pace from start to finish. It scales the heights of absurdity at times but if that's a problem to you then you wouldn't have got this far. This one does though feature some super-hero like performances from some of the operators at times!

I know that some people think this series needs to be brought to a conclusion and I do accept the point but I will sure miss it when it's over and done. There are hints in this one that we are not too far from the end in "Carnage".

As for the narration . . . well who else could do one of these but RC Bray? A man who could read me the telephone directory for an hour and make it sound exciting. So, if you liked what went before and want some more then hit the purchase button without fear. If you're new to the Arisen series then start from the beginning; if you like this kind of thing you won't regret it.

Needs 10 stars all round, just awesome!

This is the best series I've come across even if the genre is a little out of my usual zone and these books have fast become one, I'd listen to again. (something that I'd never do, so so many great books out there)

The story lines that follow these characters just has you on the edge of your seat. Your heart in your throat and tears streaming down your cheeks.

Of course it is one of the hardest books on you emotionally. These characters you've come to love over the course of what 100 hours of listening! so as everything heads to the final battles and towards closure. It's enough to drive you wild.

I did think this was the last, but it seems that there's more, omg I seriously can't wait. But there are a good few story lines that do need final closure.

Huge thank you to RC Bray who nails these characters and the tone and setting. And of course, thank you to the writer. :) you both rock.

:) ps when is the next one out..... hahah

It’s a good series and I shall see it out to the end but the airplane fight scene in this volume was ridiculous. Sniper shots from standing on the rear of the fuselage while the plane is taking off...

Major plotlines just abandoned at the end

Any additional comments?

Having 'stuck with it' through 12 largely enjoyable books, it was surprising that two of the continuing and major plotlines were simply abandoned at the beginning of book 12. Not that everything requires a nice, neat, tidy resolution, but the plots were just abandoned mid-flow to concentrate on something else. Felt very unresolved.
