Howie's group disembark from the Isle of Wight, but when the ferry they take breaks down they climb aboard a Royal Navy supply vessel at anchor outside Portsmouth Harbour to find a huge horde of undead. We meet Maddox and a group of council estate children who have survived the apocalypse by taking refuge in a cannabis plantation.
When a horde of undead attack the children, Howie tries to save them only to find they turn on him. Eventually a truce is called, and an uneasy alliance begins to develop.

I'm totally hooked! I love this series of stories! Great for any zombie or apocalypse fan! Really good character development and the story keeps you going!
This book story line and the whole lot from book one to this book five is totally brilliant the story behind the gang and how the work together is great. I really hope this isn't the last book
Big commuter so can listen to a couple of books per week, love horror and the odd Biography
Thats it i have finished them all ....what am i going to do now until the next one comes out?????
Hurry up amazon and produce the rest of the series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing, engrossing and unputdownable (a new word I invented just for this review)
How well written it is.
He takes you from your lounge or wherever you are listening from right into the story, you are one of the guys, you are in danger of getting munched by a zombie and the characters are you best mates saving your bum!
The best zombie film in the WORLD
This is one of those books where the writing and narrating are just ment to be together. I wouldn't Change anything it just all goes together like it should.
Simply, the, best
Its humour and heart throughout, and Cookey as always i bloody love you!
Dan Morgan has comfortably assimilated into Mr Howie. Bringing a beloved character to life.
Yes, like all in this series.
Being a fan of most things Zombie and reading loads of authors in the genre, Its my opinion that there is no one better than Mr Haywood at his craft. We care deeply about the characters he has created. I cant envisage ever becoming bored with this series.
While I've enjoyed all 5 books in the series. I felt shirt changed with this book. It didn't cover enough ground.
"Love this series!"
I really love this zombie series and the narrator makes it come alive! Some parts are a bit predictable but most books like this are. Good series!
For the first time, we get a sense of the world outside of Howie's little band. So far, we've been focused pretty much him or those connected to him. This is the first time that we see things from a point of view totally unconnected to the main characters. We get to see how a different group of survivors has coped with the situation. It seems as though Dan Morgan has gotten better at this. His voices are more well defined then they have been previously. All in all, a fantastic listen to continue the story.
"It ends too soon.."
Just as good as the rest except I could keep going on with this. Time for the next one! :)
"Negative reviews baffle me"
I thought this book carried along the story just fine! Adding to the story perfectly and it got into the backgrounds of others that were in much different circumstances within the same apocalypse.
No worries, they meet, ending in new deaths and new friendships. What more can you ask for?
"different than all the other undead"
this book deviated from the series storyline. Howie and his group play a very small part in this book. the main characters are a group of thud kids and how they are handling the zombies. of course, Howie does cross their path...it will be seen if this group of kids is threaded back in the storyline.
"See you next Tuesday"
Yes, but it must be one that is not offended by the over use of the "c" word. While I am not easily offended, the amount of vulgarities in this book can be off putting. That being said, a good zombie novel is hard to come by so finding one makes you want to share it and this is one that I will share. The scenes are well set, they don't come off like they are written by someone that lives in their mother's basement and their only experience with the word comes from video games.
just hearing what happens to Howie and his gang.
You can actually tell the characters apart by his use of different voices.
Not really, but it is a "page turner"
Like I said if you can get past all the swear words, this is actually a very good series.
"Love this series!!"
This Part 5 introduces the "gang" of kids led by Maddox. I cannot decide whether I like or hate Maddox. I tend to dislike him more often than not. He does not treat Howie with the respect and appreciation he is due and that offends me!! I dearly love Howie, Dave, Clarence and the "Lads" and I do not like when they are not treated well. This Part 5 is a little different from the rest of the books in the Series. It is still outstanding, but does not feature the Living Army as much as other books. Haywood continues to create outstanding characters with his excellent writing and Morgan continues to bring them alive with his excellent reading. This is a gripping series. I started with the free Deleted Scene (an hour long book) and was hooked. I listened to all that were in Audible.com and then started on the Kindle versions for the rest. I have now finished Day Nineteen and must wait until Haywood write the next one. I am so addicted that the wait will be unbearable!! The series never gets flat or predictable. It is always interesting and compelling from Day One to Day Nineteen.
"Great series..but one minor issue.
I really enjoyed this book, especially the character growth. it's not a typical zombie slasher run of the mill book that, now a days, is a dime a dozen. you can not read it and not feel a close bond between Howie and Dave. The only problem I had with this series so far is how many times Howie says "mate". it's said so often, it almost takes away from the story and your mind is counting the number of times Howie says it rather than following along with their misadventure.
"Series gets better with each one"
I wasn't sure how I felt about this series with the first book, but with each book it grew on me. I can't wait for the next one.
