Publisher's Summary

Cade Grayson, father, husband, and former Delta Force operator collected his fair share of ghosts as the Omega virus ravaged the United States, turning the majority of her population into mindless automatons hungering for human flesh.

Wearing incredulous stares, the faces of those ghosts - dozens of men, women, and children he was unable to save during his many forays into the Z-infested wasteland - visit him nightly during the early morning hours when defenses are dulled and REM sleep has him in its firm grip.

For others who lost contact with loved ones during the frantic first hours and days of the Omega outbreak, their ghosts manifest in the nagging possibility that a wife or child or mother or sibling may still be alive out there, somewhere, struggling to survive amongst the multitudes of walking corpses and roving bands of murderous breathers.

So as the Eden survivors prepare their rural Utah compound for the coming fall and winter they find that the herds of dead patrolling the nearby State Route aren't their only enemy.

Idle time seems to be giving power to their ghosts. And with each perceived whiff of familiar perfume, or flash in the side vision of a familiar form that proves to be nonexistent, the lure of wanting to know their fate begins to affect some of the group adversely.

Even after attaining a modicum of closure in the high country of central Idaho, Duncan Winters continues to seek solace for his loss at the bottom of a whiskey bottle.

.

when the book started and the narrator began to read, two things simultaneously happened. I immediately hated the change and i was getting tired of phrases like "stay frosty , mr Murphy and 2 things simultaneously happened"

Narrator change is always hard

Would you listen to Ghosts again? Why?

No.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Adam Paul?

Maybe, depending on genre and plot.

Any additional comments?

So this series is pretty awesome. Its in my top 5 over all and probably in my top 3 for zombie series/books. Chris Patton had been the long time narrator and it was changed to Adam Paul for this book. The only thing i hated about Adam Paul's narration was his voicing of Duncan - that was just AWFUL. The author is pretty easily accessible on social media (Facebook) and he addressed this issue and has said that Adam Paul will adjust his voicing of Duncan for the future books. Ok... with all that being said, the book matches the theme and pace of the previous 7 books. This book covers roughly 2 days time period and I was happy that the author didnt spend too much time in one place or scene (which was a difficult focus point for the last book). There are a couple of twists in this book, that while I wasnt entirely expecting, it was good to portray that unfortunate problems can also happen to or impact the main characters.

New narrator...

What’s his name is gone and this guy rolls in out of no where. It was a rough transition at first, I didn’t want anything to do with him but keep with it he’s not so bad.... well his Duncan voice is awful but other then that he’s not so bad. To the actual story though awesome somehow this guy keeps these books interesting and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Narrator

Don’t like the new narrator. He speaks too fast and unlike the narrator from book 1-7 this narrator messes up the story

poor performance

I didn't like how the story was performed. The voice used for Duncan was hard on the ears. i prefer the original performance from the previous books

Unfortunate narrator change

What did you love best about Ghosts?

Great characters. I like that the author is willing to kill them off, good or bad.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghosts?

The rescue of the presidents daughter

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Chris Patton was the voice of these characters that I've grown to love. The new narrator did a commendable job, but it was upseting to have a change after 7 books into the series.

Any additional comments?

Changing the narrator for the series was a distraction at the beginning of the story.

another zombie book in the same storyline

omg the author is obsessed with gravity!!! He uses it I the weirdest contexts but has to mention it 3 or 4 times in every chapter....also gravity is not a law, it's the theory of gravity. good story but each book is too short, most books of this kind are twice as long but if you cut the book in half you sell more books. Enough with the gravity please.
