When Tom, the son of a powerful senator, becomes stranded in the Plagued States while searching for his lost sister, his only hope of survival rests in the hands of a few grizzled veteran zombie hunters and a mysterious half-breed zombie woman he thinks may know where to find his sister....
In the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, the humans won by creating a moat surrounding the Plagued States of America. Now zombies roam freely, and only the most fearless of hunters venture in, but they don't hunt to kill. Zombie labor is too valuable a commodity. That's why Tom has come to one of only three sanctioned outposts along the Moaning Coast to check their sales records in the hopes of finding his lost sister. What he finds instead is a mysterious half-breed zombie woman who may know where she is. When the township is overrun by zombies, Tom, the half-breed, and a group of grizzled zombie hunters must fend for themselves in order to survive not only the zombie horde, but the military gunships trying to wipe out the infection.
This debut book by Better Hero Army stands to become the start of one of the best new zombie series with its action-packed story, great characters, and twists that keep you on your toes and breathless to the very end.

This is a pretty quick listen. I listened to it while I burned brush, and I'm not sure that was the best idea I ever had haha. It's not exactly a scary or tension filled book, but when it's dark out, there's no moon and only the fire for light, which then lights up random critter's eyes who have come to see what you're doing, it becomes so! LOL just a word of warning!
I really enjoyed it! I liked the characters, and how the brothers interacted with each other. It felt natural in an unnatural setting. The various cast of characters were interesting, and stayed with the personality they were first given. The flow was good, and the different kinds of zombies was really interesting to read. Too often, zombie books will follow one of a few set formulas, and it was refreshing to find something different.
The narrator was really good, too. A pleasant voice and pace, nice tone, and it seemed like he knew the story, which is always a sticking point for me. Very well done.
I thoroughly enjoyed this, and hope to listen to the next.
