Eighteen terrorists. Hundreds of hostages. Three good men and US Special Forces operative Zeb Carter.
Terrorists have captured a high profile hotel in Washington D.C and have complete control over hundreds of hostages. They are experienced, efficient, ruthless, and are working to a plan; a plan that involves mass execution. The hostages include US Special Forces operative Zeb Carter, who was dining in the hotel with friends when the terrorists attacked. Zeb is experienced, efficient, ruthless when he has to be, and has no plan. His goal is to survive; his dying can be fatal for the hostages because the killing is only the beginning.

The overall experience of this audio book was disappointing.
Even with artistic licence it overreached.
Definitely not helped by the narrator who could have done with a shot of adrenaline!
No excitement, no thrills, not worth it.
"Zeb and his team are back!"
Zeb Carter and his team are back and on the case when the Vice Presidents son and friend are kidnapped. Being led on a merry chase, nothing is as it seems and which child was the real target! Good book that moves at a nice pace, as the team try to get ahead of the kidnappers.
Well read by Steve Carlson and keeps the story moving along nicely.

"Worth The Credit!!"
Great Story. Well written, fast paced, full of action, suspense and intrigue. Great plot. Totally engaging, interesting and entertaining. If you like mystery/thriller/suspense stories this one is absolutely worth your time.
While this book is part of an ongoing series it can definitely be read as a stand alone book. This is the second book in the Warriors Series I have listened to and I liked it even more than the first book I read. I need to go back and read the read the rest of the series in order. Just to experience all the adventures Zeb Carter and the team go through.
Steve Carlson does a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Clearly spoken. Nice even pace. He has a calm kind of voice, very easy to listen to. His narration added to the enjoyment of the story.

"Lots of action"
This story was a lot of fun to listen to. Great plot and GREAT characters. What did I like the most? I liked the fact that even though it is the 8th book in a series, I can read it as a stand alone book and enjoy it just as much.

"Fast paced, great action, great story"
This is the first book I have listened too written by Ty Patterson and I am certainly glad I did. The group of warriors Ty Patterson has created for this book (and the series I am sure) is a great concept, well built, varied members and feels rather more real than one would expect from a 'Hollywood' movie. Each character is believable. Not one person in my opinion is a minor part of the team which adds to the likeability of the story.
The story line itself keeps you there listening. I certainly sat listening to this for much longer than my average self allotted listening time such as commuting. Evening TV was turned off and I dived back into Ty Patterson's Warriors with honest anticipation eager to find out what happened next.
Certainly took me to the stories of exciting action blockbusters, yet as already said, more real than Hollywood.
Zero is a great story, a good 'why did this happen'. The bad guys are stronger and well developed in that they are not simply a lackluster group of bad guys who you know will be beaten at the end. The Warriors are well challenged by them. I enjoyed the use of modern technology, drones, weaponry, computers etc.and felt this added to my enjoyment.
This audio book was provided to me free of charge by the author in return for an unbiased, honest review via AudioBook Boom and although I initially felt I would be missing something by listening to this book eight of a series I am glad I still did. I believe this book can be read in isolation however, I will be hunting down the others in the series as I enjoyed this one so much.
I felt the narration lacked something, however Steve Carlson's voice is clear and easy to follow and did not detract enough to cause me to dislike the book.
Well done Ty Patterson. You have created a great team, great idea, an excellent memorable action book and I shall look for more in the series.
"Fast paced throughout!"
Zero, by Ty Patterson was such a satisfying listen. Not only do you have good strong characters that you can’t help but like, but you also find a story filled with non stop action. Wisdom enables the well practiced team to ask the right questions, seek the unseen clues, and follow an unknown enemy who seems quite able to stay one step ahead.
It’s left me wanting to read or listen to the entire Warrior series. A lot to look forward to since this was book eight. If you like a suspense thriller, you should enjoy this one immensely.

"Thrilling story marred by a lackluster narrator"
Overall I think this book is definitely time well spent. The author has crafted an intricate story that has so much realism packed into it that it makes up for an absolutely horrible performance from the narrator.
Has to be a tie between the technical accuracy shown by the author and the charisma and sense of camaraderie the author imbues his team with. This is a team that has been through some very rough situations and has come out injured and scarred but also stronger for it. Being a newcomer to the series I was slightly worried about jumping in this deep, but the book stands on its own well. The author does a good job of giving enough background about each character and the team in general while not overloading the reader with too many details about past adventures. The author builds for these characters a vivid world of action and combat, full of all the details that readers of the genre demand.
I disliked absolutely everything about the performance. The narrator seems to be bored of the material, only injecting the barest hints of acting into the action sequences, or when someone is yelling. Everything else is read in a dull monotone that quickly grows tiresome for the reader. The result (for me, at least) is a one-star performance rating and a subsequent 2-star drop in overall rating for the book in general.
If this book was narrated by any of the action genre staples such as Scott Brick, it would have been an instant and easy 5-stars all the way around.

"Another great Zeb Carter book"
Another great Zeb Carter book. The series definitely gets better as it goes along. I do like how each book stands on its own. You don't really need to have read all the others to enjoy this one. I still find Zeb to be an incredibly fantastical character. But I suppose that's what makes it so fun. Love the story in this book. Lots of action, never a dull moment.
Steve Carlson's performance as always is wonderful. I do feel he reads a little slow however. I enjoyed listening to it more at the 1.5 speed.
