10:35 AM, September 14th, 2015. Portsmouth, England.
A global particle physics experiment releases a pulse of unknown energy with catastrophic results. The sanctity of the grave has been sundered and a million graveyards expel their tenants from eternal slumber. The world is unaware of the impending apocalypse, governments crumble and armies are scattered to the wind under the onslaught of the dead.
Kurt Taylor, a self-employed plumber, witnesses the start of the horrifying outbreak. Desperate to reach his family before they fall victim to the ever growing horde of shambling corruption, he flees the scene. In a society with few guns, how can people hope to survive the endless waves of zombies that seek to consume every living thing? With ingenuity, planning, and everyday materials, the group forge their way and strike back at the Hellspawn legions.
Rescues are mounted, but not all survivors are benevolent, the evil that is in all men has been given free rein in this new, dead world. With both the living and dead to contend with, is there any hope for the Taylor family?

"overall I enjoyed it very much"
it was slow at first but very much enjoyed. can't wait for next book to come out. thanks
"Hellspawn is awesome"
A Z-poc thrill ride that changes the definition of what a family really is, superb.
"Much better than I expected!"
Maybe it was the cover art, but I didn't really go into this listen with high hopes. (Oh! That's where the saying "don't judge a book by its cover" came from! lol jk)
Likeable characters and interesting well thought out storyline proved me wrong quickly. I'm invested in the lives of these survivors (regular folks with no extra survival or gun training..... and smart capable women and kids too! Awesome!) - will definitely be downloading a part 2 if it's on its way :)
same old thing. nothing new or clever. it was ok. like re-watching a movie you've seen a hundred times.
"ONE OF MY FAVORITE APOCALYPSE BOOKS SO FAR"
The book is in my top ten so far because of on key element - the greater use of women and children. Many books are from the male point of view and make the women and children minor characters. In real life that is not the case is it?
Braydon. You just wanted to keep cheering for him. Won't add any spoilers here!
Took me a while to warm up to this reader, I will not lie. The book pulled me through it though.
I wanted to sit and listen on and on!
Ok, ready for book 2 and 3 in audio format!! HURRY HURRY!!!
