Publisher's Summary

One platoon of Rangers from a legendary regiment. An isolated combat outpost in the Spin Ghar mountains. One-hundred-fifty Taliban survivors - armed with Tier-1 weapons - And all the rampaging dead guys in central Asia.

B Company, 3rd Bat, 75th Ranger Regiment - a unit that's fought in every US engagement from D-Day to Black Hawk Down. They are the last American boots on the ground in the entire Syrian civil war...on the last day before the Fall of human civilization. When they are tasked with stopping a unit of Spetsnaz operators from inserting under the chaos, an advanced Russian Navy frigate becomes the last place left on Earth for the Rangers to find refuge. Now, after six months held captive as scavenging mercenaries for Spetsnaz, to earn their freedom they will have to take on the most hazardous shore mission in the entire history of the ZA.

Welcome to the Zulu Alpha.

Devastation. Devotion. Sacrifice.

Loved this snip-it only wish it were 30 hrs!

I have every iteration of this series. It is the Gold Standard of shoot-em up, action packed, war talking, zombies killing, end of the world with a bit of humor. Man I wish it didn’t take so long for the next books in the series to come out. I also wish this was a Netflix series.
Any of these books are a good read but if you’re just starting you should begin here. This book covers the early days of the ZA Wars and answers the questions how the USS Kennedy and the Russians. This series is also very timely with the cursed China birthing yet another deadly worldwide virus. If you’re on the fence be careful because this series will hook you like no other,

After. 2nd thought there are two other series that truly hooked me like this series does Keith C. Blackmore’s The Mountain Man and Taylor Anderson’s The Destroyermen Series. These three will keep you entertained and laughing while on the edge of you seat for years. Golden!

Great Book

Another great book by Mr. Fuchs. This is a short stand alone book, but well worth the few bucks to buy.
Ready for more.... but longer in format.

AWESOME Jumping on point.

I can't say enough, so I'll just say... This is my favorite series, even over Dark Tower. If you like it too, the same quality is here. Think Maximum Bob kind of badassery. If you're new to it, there's HOURS AND HOURS of the same waiting for you. It's short, and cheap... pay cash, and save your credit for the Arisen 1-3 set!

An excellent stand alone

This is a great stand-alone for this series, it should serve as your intro to the series of you are new to the Arisen Series. You’ll read many reviews refer to how short it is, which may baffle you as it seems a “normal length” BUT each book is approximately 15 hrs long, so we’re a bit spoiled. This is a great set up for newbies because the pace of action is something you must be prepared for in addition to multiple stories all over the world which will eventually coalesce, so these stand-alones are great interjections to bringing insight as the saga unfolds
RC Bray kicked arse on the narration once again

Btw if you’re going to begin Mountain Man (which is amazing), start with the Hospital because like this book, it sets up all that is to come. Enjoy

Awesomeness...

I've come to expect nothing less. I loved this story. A sad one but not everyone gets to go home in war. These aren't paintball pellets and grenades. Please give us more. I would relish an aftermath of the Meningitis Z release. Would love to hear how everyone is failing. Even the Ruskies.

good tiime

This was a cool,fun story. A little short on back info at first,but this has been done before,so you can fill in the blanks yourself.
The narrator is the real star here,that voice made it work well.
Fun book,looking forward to others by
the writer and narrator reading.

Another Nugget of Arsien Goodness!

Maybe Mr Fuchs ought to be off writing something new you could say but I for me I really enjoyed this latest little gem from the history of the ZA. It's right up there in terms of pace, purpose and action with the last few books of the main series albeit with different characters and a Spetsnaz that take a slightly different character profile to what we have seen before in these books.

But, if RC Bray bringing to life just a few more hours of Arisen action in his own wonderful style, telling tall tales of top-rate special operators kicking ass in amongst enemies both human and dead is what you are after then this will deliver that like a grenade going off between your headphones!

Good, but not great.

A good value addition to the Arisen universe, but not quite enough Zombie action to score higher.

Another classic Arisen

this book while short and just not built up in the same style as the main series has no problem fitting into the great series that is these books

a brilliant story that sneaks in well with the early ZA and still has the military descriptiveness that we love plus doesnt scrimp on the action!!

looking forward to lots more side stories

not up to the Arisen standard

One of the many things I love about the Arisen series is that there's a detailed plot, lots of character development and not too much 'weapons adoration'. this short story is pretty much the opposite. Not worth the money IMHO and doesn't really add anything to the Arisen-verse

A bit of nothing

I loved the main series but this book was a bit of nothing. The lack of connection to the main story line meant it was a bit of a waste of time, for the characters and listener. Story on its own ultimately meant nothing and went nowhere.

That all being said RC Bray makes anything worth listening too and the end was well delivered.

Another wild ride in the ZA

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much knowing the usual Alpha crew wouldn't be throwing down maximum violence in the ZA but God damn Michael Stephen Fuchs has done it again.

The only thing that I can possibly criticise this for is that it's over far too soon.

Short, sharp and Beautiful

There will be many how complain this is too short. For me it's simply brilliant. Both MSF and RC Bray at their best present a wonderful, poignant story that just grips you from the get go. As a true fan, I appreciated every single second of a wonderful story🔥🔥 MORE🔥...Please

Yet another awesome story

Absolutely fantastic, like every great performance there’s a encore. If this waste adds by anyone else other than RC Bray it would have been good/ great. Thank you both for the awesome story and outstanding performance.
