Publisher's Summary

This audiobook includes the entire Zulu Virus Chronicles series in one boxset. Tons of chilling, post-apocalyptic thriller action and suspense.  

Something insidious has arrived - right in the heartland of our nation, turning neighbor against neighbor!.

Dr. Lauren Hale, a new hospital resident, is nearly killed by a raving mad emergency room patient, in a senseless, unprovoked attack.  

Officer David Olson, veteran cop and former Marine, returns from a father-son camping trip to discover that his ex-wife has vanished under bizarre circumstances, and his police department is on the verge of collapse.  

Jack and Emma Harper, a young, upwardly mobile couple, find their hip city neighborhood rapidly descending into madness.  

Dr. Eugene Chang, a research scientist for a major pharmaceutical company, makes a shocking discovery that might explain the spreading wave of illness and violence gripping the city. Eric Larsen, leader of a top-secret, rapid-response unit, circles high above the Midwest, in an unmarked military transport. Mission still unknown, his team waits to parachute into the night.  

Within 24 hours, complete strangers from different walks of life will be forced to join together to survive the living nightmare that has been unleashed on their city - and their country.

This is their story.  

Welcome to the Zulu Virus Chronicles!

Really lead nowhere and gave no real conclusions in the 3 books. Mayfurther installment may make it interesting but it wasn’t really a thrilling Zulu story. The Zulu where not even really a major problem

another great series

I love this author so much! he writes some very good, action packed, great imagery, awesome storytelling/plots, books ! I only hate it when the series ends bc I always feel connected to the families & characters , and feel like I come out of a distant land away from home/reality. I laugh so hard, get so upset, & just enjoy thoroughly everything hes written so far. please keep it up - you have gained another fan!!!

Good story, HORRIBLE narration

The story is very good, I’m enjoying it through two books so far. BUT..... the narration is ridiculous. The guy reading the story gives characters voices that are a cross between extreme stereotypes and Sesame Street characters. I was fighting to pay attention to the content of the story in spite of the narration. It’s really that bad. He narrates a 17 year old kid as though he were 12, and he makes another character sound like Kermit the Frog. There’s a military character named Ochoa that he makes sound like a member of MS-13. Just because the guy has a Latino last name doesn’t mean he has to have an extremely stereotypical accent. If you can find a version that doesn’t not have Charles Hubbell as narrator, I would recommend it.

Horrible Narrator

The story line was okay and the writing was good, but I could not get into the books due to the horrible narration. It was extremely distracting. The narrator used almost cartoon character voices in what should be a serious novel. For example, he made a young married couple in the city sound like they were 60 year old county folk while alternatively making an older character sound young and strong. He also used extremely stereotypical accents based on the characters last name. I probably would have finished all three books if another narrator was used however I only made it through the first and had to quit. I really want my money back on this one. I will make sure to never buy another book with this narrator.

If you are looking for a zombie novel, don't buy.

The first book is so, so. but I couldn't get through the second. The narrator's goofy voices really started getting to me. No zombies just "crazies". This isn't horror, it's a pretty G rated bio weapon, special forces book. If you are looking for a fast a paced apocalyptic thriller with gore... this book isn't for you.

Got better and better

The first book was a snoozer, I quickly forwarded through the character background and things like daddy son bonding parts. Sheesh. Luckily this package has three books for one credit and things got more interesting, more of a plot line and action. Defnitely worth one measely credit. The infected arent as important as the human enemies in this series.

Books 2 and 3 are a real letdown

I really enjoyed Book 1. The plot related to various characters surviving a town falling apart due to a bio weapon attack, and the people who are trying to do the right thing was fascinating.

Then, books 2 and 3 showed up; and most of your favorite characters either disappear or have nothing to do. The story becomes one military engagement after another with little pacing. Also, you know how the first book slowly revealed information into the attack itself? That basically stops altogether after book one. What an unsatisfying trilogy.

Just read book one.

Please learn to write.

Sweet baby jeebus. This author must be new. I’m hoping the story makes it worth it but most of the words are “Said David.” “David said” “said Josh” “Josh said”
There are so many ways to cary a conversation without sounding like a 5 year old wrote it.

great series

Konkoly is so good at this Genre it's scary. I am glad I got this as a box set though because the cliff hangers would have killed me if I would have purchased them one at a time.

Boring

Not a lot happens.
It ended up just being back ground noise for me, as the book just did not draw me in at all.

Narrator needs shooting.

Terrible narration, story has potential but the voices are awful almost like a 10 year old was asked to make a funny voice. The technical military jargon is boring, everything has an acronym that's explained every time. Either use the acronym and assume its common knowledge or use the civilian version, an example was when they used the acronym ifak individual first aid kit, just say "his first aid kit" Then giving the model number of the shot gun, just say shotgun, nobody is going to be impressed that the author googled military hardware, it's information overload that detracts from the flow of the story.
