Publisher's Summary

A serial killer stalks the ice-glazed streets. Half-frozen deadheads choke the avenues. Infected vermin rise from the labyrinth of sewer systems, hungry for warm flesh. And a handful of survivors struggle to escape and find someplace safe. In his hunt for Tenner, Scott discovers he must contend with all of this, before things truly get worse. Welcome. To Hellifax.

    "Pretty Good!"

    After book 2 which I found to be pretty poor I was undecided if I should go for Halifax. In the end Im glad I did. Its not that book 2 did not have its good parts, but it was the constant repitition that at times made it unbearable. Some editing would make it a much better book. This book, Halifax,, thankfully suffered less from repitition but could have still done with some more editing to cut out some of the dead wood. Having said that its a good story that rolls along at a pace, with some very good characterisation.

    "Scott"

    This installment follows Scott, after his departure from Gus and his new lady friend up at the mountain retreat, to take care of some unfinished business (Tanner).

    Brilliant writing and story development, and some superb new characters. I got into the series from the free short story The Hospital, and ever since each book has been better than the last. Looking forward to book 4 which has the highest rating, too!

    Good job Mr.Blackmore

    "Good final ending to the trilogy"

    I am glad the author wrote this third book so we could follow Scott ' s events in Nova.
    The graphical story sure does keep you on your toes because you cannot second guess yourself, rather act quickly and don't hesitate.
    I really enjoyed it.

    "Fair book but Main hero Bit too Whimsy"
    What did you like most about Hellifax?

    It was a good book but seriously hated how author kept explaining why the main hero 'Scott' is allowed to be a whimp.....


    If you’ve listened to books by Keith C. Blackmore before, how does this one compare?

    it was ok


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Mountain man without Gus...... shame really, the book was good but you will not really support the main hero, infact he is annoying but Vic and Amy are the real characters in the book :) Shame Scott was not killed off early in the book so you could join in better with the rest of real characters :)

    "much better than expected!"
    What did you love best about Hellifax?

    the palpable tension in parts of the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hellifax?

    there were several memorable moments, but i can't say without spoiling parts of the story. but i did find myself cheering for somebody unexpected. 'nuff said!


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    r.c. bray is the man! he can do all sorts of voices, from a regular joe to deep and gravely to a confident, young girl to a great canadian accent.


    Who was the most memorable character of Hellifax and why?

    tenner definitely gets more developed, but i'd have to say amy. who is she? listen to the book to find out!


    Any additional comments?


    at first, i wasn't to sure about this story. i liked scott's character from book 1, but i wasn't sure if he could carry a story bby himself, without gus. also, i wasn't sure if a whole 12 hour story about hunting for a serial killer would be that interesting. so if you're wondering the same things, then let me put those worries to rest. this is another great story.

    as the story opens, scott is traveling to hellifax in search of tenner, the serial killer who brutally tortured and killed his 2 friends and mistakenly left him for dead. there's one problem though- a blizzard. the snow is really piling up, and scott must find a suitable place to hole up before he and his suv get stuck.

    the beginning is kind of slow. tenner lures somebody to their death. at first, i thought it was just another torture scene, but that person's death plays a pivotal role in the direction of the plot later in the book. throughout the story, parts of the story are told from tenner's point of view. these are like short vignettes, and i enjoyed them.

    there's also another group introduced in the beginning. they call themselves the norsemen. they are a hardened group of men ordered to head east to find out what's going on and to look for supplies. like tenner, i wasn't to sure about them, but their story is woven nicely into the overall arch of the story.

    i must say the author has once again done a good job of creating a lot of tension in certain parts of the story. i was actually holding my breath in parts, trying not to make to much noise as i listened. LOL no, i won't spoil your listening experience and tell you what was happening. but it does involve scott meeting a girl named amy at the most inopportune time!

    once the story starts to pick up, it moves quickly to end. yes, the ending is a little sad but satisfying. the author nicely wraps up the major plot lines, and you don't get the feeling that the author rushed to finish things. i would say the pacing is excellent. at the end, there is a possibility of another book, but if not, the story definitely wrapped up in a satisfying way!

    overall, i highly recommend this book! it could be read as a standalone book, but i really enjoyed it as the 3rd and final? book.

    Great story, has everything. Scott takes off on his mission to find the sociopath that murdered his friends. There are cannibal raiders, a hot chick, a whole new group of people and a big plot line with different parts weaved together, and its 12 hrs long! Woot! I couldn't put my headphones down :) Can't wait for book 4, "Well Fed". Ok, but narrator, when you speak, you say Tennor, when you speak for them, they say Tanner. Hmm.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hellifax to be better than the print version?

    Hell yeah. R. C. Bray does an amazing job


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Augustus Berry, he's perfectly imperfect, hard not to like


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think I've only heard him in this series and he nails it


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ? I don't know... I just hope it hits theaters at some point.


    Any additional comments?

    Please write book 5

    What made the experience of listening to Hellifax the most enjoyable?

    At first I wasn't sure I'd get into this series. I think the author improved with each book. Added an interesting angle to the world of Zombies.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hellifax?

    Don't want to give spoiler's!!!


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    He is always so good! One of my favorite narrators. He is very good with voices of women.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to the next book which is on Audible next week.

    "A series worth the time - lots of twists!"

    A story from our darkest nightmares and fears. What happens to humanity when the world goes to hell in a handbasket? There's just enough triumph and hope to make me believe our species would survive.

    The narration is perfect with urgency that pushes the story forward at a breakneck pace.

    Too many to pick or list, several characters with outstanding, disturbing, brutal and compassionate story lines.

    "Not the same without Gus"

    Keith Blackmore's 'Mountain Man' were the first in the zombie genre which really got me hooked on a series. However, since those first days I have certainly listened to a lot more. Some of the latest have included were Chris Philbrook’s “Adrian’s Undead Diary”, Timothy Long’s “Z-Risen” and Eloise J Knapp’s “The Undead Situation”. Which certainly have taken the battle to Keith's books in my favourite zombie series.

    Since finishing book 2 'Safari' in this 'Mountain Man' series I wondered how it was going to go without Gus, as this one is all about Scott who has left Gus to hurt down a madman... serial killer... Scott's character never really got me that interested in the previous book and so I found it difficult to really care what happens to Scott.

    Worse still for this book was one of the reasons I liked the series so much was the character Gus came across as the sort of bloke I would really like to know. Gus' sense of humour and the way he talked to his beloved 'uncle Jack' really allowed me the listener to enjoy the scene for what it was... a comic book style action.. which caused the listener to feel young at heart. Gus' character never allowed the story to become too serious... after all it is a zombie story!

    I was surprised I found myself listening to the book in one session. While I still didn't take a shine to the main character Scott. The other characters balanced it rather well. While, it wasn't my favourite in the series: That award belongs to the free short story (The Hospital) you get with book one and book one itself (Mountain Man). I think as a standalone book it was acceptable but as part of a series it was better.

    The ending... don't worry there won't be any spoilers. I wonder if there will be another in the series. I'm hope if there is it includes Gus again!

    The narration was good; I listened to this one at 1.25x speed with no problems.

    My buying advice for this one is... do yourself a favour and get the rest of the series first, it will be more fun!
