Publisher's Summary

When Sarah escapes from her brutal abductors, she promises to return to rescue her twin sister, but with the walking dead invading Fort Worth, TX, she is forced to rely on a competitive coworker who made her work life hell for years. With her coworker weakened by cancer treatments, her sister still imprisoned, and zombies looking for an easy meal, Sarah's only plan, if she can pull it off, is survival.

Survival is a short story that was originally published in the Let's Scare Cancer to Death anthology.

Roller coaster trip through Zombie land

Swift moving chapter in a series format. I enjoyed this horror tale but would have liked to know the beginning, onslaught of the Zombie crisis. This first chapter started already in the grip of the deadly creatures roaming and ruling the city. Hopefully the subsequent chapters will go back to explain the HOW and WHY.

The story is nicely developing the group of characters, the survivors. I am looking forward to the next episode.

The narrator did a good job with the different characters' voices and personalities.

Zombies In Ft. Worth!

If you could sum up Survival in three words, what would they be?

Way to short. That's probably not what Audible had in mind when they came up with the question, but they sum it up for me. The story was just starting to get really good and engrossing and BAM, I'm hearing "we hope you've enjoyed...." signaling the end of the book. There are many topics that, of course, have been left hanging and I'm sure that was the authors plan all along. I hope the next book in the series is an actual book and not another novella. Since this first one is so short, I'd also like to see the next book start with the novella and then just keep going. Although it was really good, there wasn't enough to it to really imprint on my brain.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Survival?

Probably when Sarah returns to the warehouse and rescues her sister

Have you listened to any of Lisa L. Wiley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first listen with Ms. Wiley as the narrator

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No, but like I said to was really short, I did like the part where they rescued the kids

Zombies and cancer..

Zombies and Cancer....something I have never seen together before in any book, tv show, or movie. This story starts us off right in the middle of the action. It's not often that a book does that, and it definitely grabs the reader right away. The only downside in this case is that I would have liked to see a little more back story/ world building. We are given enough information to understand, but not much more. I wondered why the cancer was included, but I figure it will be a major facter in the future of the series. I wish this was a little longer as well! The narrator of the audiobook did a great job, and I liked her voice. I enjoyed this audiobook and I hope to continue with the next.

A Really Good Zombie Short Story

SURVIVAL was a great listen. It had all the elements of a full length story. Good world building plus likable characters. I especially liked the protagonist Sarah. This was exciting and a good zombie thriller set in Ft. Worth, TX. which I also liked. I wish it had been a little longer although it was a good start to a new series. I would love to hear a continuation of this story. It was engrossing. Rhonda Hopkins is a wonderful author.

Lisa L. Wiley's performance was superb. She had the perfect voice for Sarah. She made this an enjoyable listen with great voice inflections and a good pace. She made it sound effortless. An overall super job.

A zombie story from a female view.

There are many zombie stories out that have the male in the leading role.
This one is about a woman and her twin sister dealing with life and people at the start of a zombie outbreak. It presents issues from a different point of view than most zombie stories. Like what happens to the non-zombie children of zombies and people who were sick before the outbreak. It is easy to get caught up in the action and loose track of time because there is something happening from start to finish.
My main complaint about this story is that it ended too soon. Looking forward to the next one.
This story is suitable for YA. Not overly violent or sexual. A good story for male and female.

Great zombie short with female lead

Would you consider the audio edition of Survival to be better than the print version?

I only experienced the audible version, but I know I wouldn't have enjoyed a print version as much.

Which character – as performed by Lisa L. Wiley – was your favorite?

Sarah, the main character. She was a normal, relatable woman that really worked well in her role.

Quick but Good!

Downloaded this book last night and could not stop listening until done. Loved it! When is the next one? Good horror but much too short wanted it to continue. Sarah is a heroic female and thumbs up to Meredith. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. Thank you. The author and narrator did great job.
