Publisher's Summary

It was just a random mutation - one of a billion that happen in viruses every day. But this one was different. It exploded out of Somalia and spread across the oceans before anybody thought to look up from their cell phones to see what was going on. 

The infected breathed the virus into the air around them, spreading it through the cities faster than anyone thought possible. Hospitals were overwhelmed. Police lines crumbled. Quarantine sites disintegrated. Cities started to collapse.  

Through the chaos, some, like Zed Zane, discovered the virus wasn't going to kill them, but change them. Change them into something different, and leave them in a world where the word "survival" took on an older, more brutal meaning.

I feel like I’m cheating the author

I’ve listened to hundreds of books and I usually only listen to trilogies or more. To get 9 books with one credit of THIS quality is too much! So well written, well paced, great characters, 5 stars all round.

Thank you so much, can’t wait to pick up your next series. Again 1 credit for 6 books!

Slow Burn

Loved it, the little differences make this the best Zombie story I've read/heard. Well worth the time.

Give it a chance

I got this set because Phil Thron gave a heads-up about it on Twitter, and I’m a big fan of Phil Thron. I really enjoyed this story. Good main characters, lots of action, and good storyline. Take a chance and enjoy.

this has to be one of the best deals on audible right now, 9 books and it never got repetitive, the characters were great and the story always fresh and exciting, I can't recommend this enough, the narrator was absolutely awesome as well.

Love the different perspective

love these characters and Murphy especially. The different direction taken with the infected was great and refreshing as far as post apocalyptic viruses go.

Great Post-Apochalyptic Thriller

Fabulously written. Loved the descriptions, witty and realistic dialogue and fully dimensioned characters. He breathes new life into a tired genre. Pair this with the always impressive Phil Thron and you've got a real winner.

The GOAT!!!!!

I have read and listened to untold numbers of post apocalyptic novels. This is BY FAR the GREATEST OF ALL TIME!!!. Bobby Adair is the bomb and he truly captured and unleashed the characters of Zed Zain "Null Spot the Destroyer" and the "Mighty Murphy" Smalls on the naked bald horde. The depth of his characters and his ability to weave a fascinating tale of horror and delight all on the same page. I will keep this tale and go back to it often. The detail that he goes to is amazing as well.

Then the Narration by Phil Thron is out of this world. He brought the pages to life and pulled me into the action.

Definitely worth the money!

I was bored one day a few years ago. Decided to have a look at what free books are available on the kindle store and I found Slow Burn book 1. I didn’t really expect much from it as it was free but I read it from start to finish in one go. I then bought the next one and pretty much did the same. Now I own the the collection with quite a few duplicate copies as some were included in box sets. Still, it’s definitely worth the money. Zed and Murphy are great characters and I can’t wait for book 10. Bobby Adair has released some really good series of books and I’d recommend them all. Being able to listen to my favourite series whilst I’m driving for work or laying in bed being lazy is just perfect and the guy doing the narration is quite comical at times with his voices. BUY THIS, you won’t regret it! Thank you Bobby!

Loved it.

Managed to listen to the whole thing to 2 weeks, just couldn’t stop. A bit lost now it’s ended.
Great narration by Phil Thron as always, and as you can tell really enjoyed the story.
So worth 1 credit, I would of happily paid more. If your sitting on the fence, just get it.
