I love His work as a rule ,but was a little disappointed with this book

I have purchased every book mark Tufo has written ,love his work & I love the characters like BT and especially micheal Talbot .
But this book was disappointing, it meandered around for ages before the plot line really got started and then just when it finally gets interesting it literally just stops .
I realise that it will continue in the next book but by the time that comes out I will have forgotten half the story line .
So can you at least bring out the next book a bit quicker !!
This all being said - I love the depth of character that mr Tufo has created for micheal Talbot , I actually feel like I know the guy & his many phobias - truly awesome mr Tufo !!!

this review contains spoilers.

loved the first 9 or so books but since then it seems like each book leaves a cliffhanger ending, but not the normal sort, the sort where the name of the book doesn't make sense because the cliffhanger results in the plot of the book not being concluded, by the last 30 mins of the book it's clear there is a betrayal, but by the end of the books this has not been resolved and Mike is locked up with his squad, this seems like the sort of thing that should not be used as a cliffhanger as it's the whole f*cking plot. Imagine if law and order ended right as they decided on a suspect. wouldn't seem right if you didn't get to see them find the suspect and bring them to justice.

Another brilliant book by Mr Tufo.

Loved this book, once again brought alive by the brilliant Sean Runnette, my 80yr old mum and I are now eagerly waiting for the next instalment.

Feels half done

Feels like it ended halfway through a normal story arc, otherwise the usual good story and narration.

Entertaining... and yet...

As usual, Mark writes a great story and Sean brings the characters to life masterfully. I swear that when I read ZF1 I never saw the series goign in this direction. We've got intelligent zombies, talking zombie apes, vampires, magic men from other places... and Denoe.

But okay, I feel like I need to vent a smidge. one thing that keeps sort of tweaking me is how Mark continues to fluctuate the power of the vampires. i.e. Tommy and mike. In one scene, it's cold and rainy and they're fine, and in another, there's a real danger of dying from frost bite. in book 7, Mike picks up BT in his arms and jumps over a fence, and in this book, both he "and" Tommy can barely pick him up?

My point is - where's the consistency? why can't Mike just embrace his vampireness? Or at least the parts that would help him, like super human strength. it's like every time there's a physical conflict, Mike barely survies it. yet he should be able to overwhelm just about anybody, even BT!? And why are the vampires of different powers? What makes Payne so powerful and Tommy not? Or Tommy more powerful than Mike? This is a complaint that carries over to the LF series, too. At least there Mike kinda gets to flex his vampness... but even so, it's never a blow out.

Just once or twice, i'd like to see Mike just blow out a confrontation rather than the author limiting his abilities simply to draw out the drama and stakes. Sorry, just had to say this :)

But still, I've purchased just about every one of Mark's books. Hope someday he does the same for me!

The plot thickens..

I absolutely love this series ZFO!! I found it very difficult as usual to stop listening when I needed to take breaks or do work. As usual Sean’s story telling of the novel is spot on! I can’t think of a better narrator for the job. Great story beginning middle and end, classically leaving the reader on edge waiting for book 14. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of vampire portions of the story. Tommy being full vampire and his abilities muted and Mike being half vampire was never even touched upon anywhere in the novel. Hinted at but never spoken of. Glad to see Iggy the zombie gorilla was brought back into the fray, especially to deal out some much needed justice. Can’t wait to hear installment number 14 and I hope more of a vampire mix is brought into the storyline as the two(vampire and zombie) go great together in my opinion! Just like everybody else, I can’t wait to hear about Vivian getting hers!

Micheal Talbot only if he were real

I can't help but give thanks to my favorite author! I can't help it but I'm in love with Micheal Talbot! this character is how every man should be like. macho sweet honorable silly crazy and never turns away from doing what is right even if he may lose his life. I can't help but crack up at his antics. the opening dialogue between him and BT had me in stitches at a time when I so needed laughter in my life. Mark Tufo is a great man too has answered a couple emails I sent him was very friendly. thank you mister Tufo please continue Micheal's life I look forward eagerly for your next installment of all things EM-T. play on words

Love mark and Sean

Only dislike is i was constantly wondering what happened to the other non Talbots kids. I feel like there should’ve been some side note on April and the other kids. Where are they living?

Another Filler Book!!!

Come on Mark! You can't just give me two filler books in a row. I love the story and would love to start closing out some of these storylines. It kills me to not want to get the books and just wait till a few come out. I forgot all about that zombie monkey, I thought he just up and died. But there he was just hanging out by zombies and didn't get swarmed at the behest of the smart zombies. I'm sorry but it's just too many storylines in the book to get any real progression. I like the series but I need some of these storylines to get to there logical end. Not saying rush the ones that need time to develop but that monkey/ ape / gorilla zombie should have been removed from the story. Also the vampire! why is she just hanging around like she is waiting for a good opportunity? Isn't she more powerful than Tommy and Mike? She should have made her move like 4 books ago! Sorry, I had to vent a little bit. I do love the series but please start wrapping up some of the loose ends.

Talbot meets Nightlord

Mark, Garon and Sean... You fellas are some of the best entertainment available. I can completely forget what I was doing while you gents are telling me a story in my earbuds! When Eric met Mike; it was like Christmas morning! I sure hope you have plans to bring them together again. However..Mark, Isn't Mike a Vampire? Why does he have Vampire abilities when he least needs them and when he is in the shit it seems he can be quite helpless? I suppose it amps up the story quite a bit when Mike appears to be vulnerable.. in this book it felt obvious his Vamp status was being deliberately left out to boost up the danger factor for Mike. Non the less... Your books are my favorite and I wait excitedly to buy your next.
Thank you for the great book and for Sean who makes me believe.... You fellas are at the top of your game!

Another perfectly written adventure.

what a way to end it. Mr Tufo has done it again, his writing will ensnare you in the latest chapter of Mike's ongoing battle to keep all those he loves safe. While also making you question EVERYTHING the people around him are doing. I have said this many times to many people, but Mark Tufo is a truly magical writer, the story only heightened by the amazing narration by Sean Runnette. Well done to both Mark and Sean on another brilliant book. I loved it.

Left feeling a little short changed

Let me start by saying I love the Zombie Fallout books and Mike and the others characters but I can’t help feeling a bit short changed with this one, it felt more like an episode rather than a complete book. Almost had a the walking dead feel to it, too much filling only to build up and leave on a cliff hanger! I couldn’t believe it when it ended.

For me it needed less Mike and BT ‘banter’ and more story!

king of the Road

As always, a story worth all the time it takes to finish, Mike and his gang carry on the legacy, that is Zombie Fallout, Sean narrating, and acting once again shines like no other narrator.
long live Mike Talbot

This book deserves more stars than I can give

I need more! This amazing saga continues and leaves you wanting more. I am going to go listen to it again now. Sean Runnette did a great job bringing everyone to life again and Mark Tufo's brain child is going places. If you are new to this world, go back, listen or read your way here and thank your lucky stars you found these series.
