Howie and his group have been lured into a false sense of security by Marcy but are rescued by Dave. Does Marcy escape?
Maddox and his crew turn up to join forces with Howie, and we are introduced to Paula, an accountant who was working late when the infection came and was subjected to a horrific sexual assault, against which she fought back. And we follow Roy, an Olympic standard archer and hypochondriac.
The day escalates to a climactic battle, with swarms of the undead trapping and dividing the survivors at the top of an old car park.

This feels like it's been rushed through a bit. As mentioned already there's some repeating which I thought was just me but a few more instances of background noise, narrator coughing and strange pauses made me realise this has been poorly edited in places.
None of that stopped me from enjoying this, it's still a brilliant series and I'm just about to start the next, can't get enough!
I hope the issue gets sorted by the time I come back and re listen to them and I hope it doesn't spoil the series for anyone!
I currently have 8 helpful votes. 28/02/17 In. Your. Face.
I have and would listen again. The characters are pure and relatable I find this rare in any kind of horror/zombie book.
nothing compares to this...in a good way.
cookie is brilliant, I have said it before and I will say it again 'bantz' ain't ma thang... but cookie is the exception.
Mr Haywood certainly has a bond with his characters and the series should not to be missed.
... I would be bored by now, but far from it, still going strong ! I love how Haywood Ingratiates the new characters so quickly in this book with especially the quirky Roy that has had me laughing out loud.
Dan Morgan one of best narrators I've listened too, you can tell who is talking with just the slightest turn of tone or pitch.
Didn't think I'd still be listening at part 8 with such enjoyment. Especially not even blanching at the price tag each time in my rush to download.
There was one book that I struggled with and didn't think I was going to bother carrying on but glad I did.
Looking forward to what the new direction will be now...
Such another good day from RR Haywood. It keeps getting better and better. With every part you fall more and more in love with Cookey and Blowers. Nick and Clarence. Dave and Mr Howie. The addition of more characters would seem daunting but you come to love them as well. Dan Morgan is as good as ever reading the books. If anything he makes listening to the books more enjoyable.
Without a doubt my favourite series. The narration is superb and the story keeps you gripped from start to finish. Only bad point. I've got to wait for ages for the next instalment.
Absolutely, the characterization is so good that we care deeply for them. I dont know anyone else who can get to the core of what makes us human than Mr Haywood
Paula, stands out in this one.
Cripes if i could write a tag line to do this book justice i would, i cant so i wont attempt it.
I dont know any other series of books i would be happy to never see come to a conclusion
There are some repetition incidents and stumbling by the reader, not the usual quality I have come to expect from the series. The story is as good as ever but the presentation is not. Hopefully this will be fixed at source and when I come to listen again they will be fixed.
Absolutely. I have recommended it to many of my friends and they all love it!
The 'heart' bit.
Yes, and I did. Sleep? What's that?
There were a few times when the recording seemed to repeat lines and some were narrated badly then repeated properly. So,not so much the performance, more the editing.
Not impressed with the editing, but overall another great book by my new favourite author. Keep them coming R R.
I would recommend this book to everyone, it's not only a zombie survival book it's way more than that!
The whole thing is one big roller coaster ride
Dave is my new best friend, if this ever happens I will be looking for my own Dave!
By now I have become attached to all the characters, I love them all!
Try the first book and if you don't like it you can return it, I doubt you will return it tho!
I hate it when I discover a great new series and Audible hasn't caught up to the books. Don't start this series because I don't want you to suffer the agony of waiting for the next installment. The story is horrifying, funny, and heart wrenching. The narration is on point. I am warning you. You will become addicted.
"Can't get enough of Howie, Dave, and their crew!"
I love audiobooks and listen to many. This series is my favorite! The narrator does such an amazing job bringing these characters to life. The author has clearly defined the characters in a manner that makes you not only know them but love them too. These books take me through a whole range of emotions....I've laughed, I've cried, and I've gasped aloud many times. I feel as if I am right there with Howie, Dave, and the whole lot of them. (I'm American and I just wanted to speak like them!) It takes a very talented author to draw me in as R.R. Haywood has done. I am DYING to listen to Part 9! Please, Audible, release it soon!!
as always this book delivers. it's fun and always comes to an end too quickly. please keep them coming.
As usual, this book deserves 5 stars in all categories. We meet two new characters, Paula and Roy. They make a great addition to the story. Both of them are very interesting people - Haywood has a great talent for creating interesting and likable characters. Paula is very smart and a good planner of traps for zombies. Roy is a hypochondriac who is uncanny good with a bow and arrow.
Dan Morgan is one of the best narrators in the business. I love to listen to him bring Howie, Dave and the rest of the Living Army to life for me.
"I love this series. ."
This series is entertaining and keeps me wanting more! It has a new spin on an old story.. I have been a zombie fan since before it was cool to be... although I think he may have a dislike for Americans...lol.. this American loves this series though.. keep them coming Mr. Haywood
"NEEDS BETTER AUDIO EDITORS. GOOD BOOK THOUGH."
THE MOST AUDIO AUDIO MISTAKES I HAVE EVER HEARD IN A SINGLE BOOK.
But, if you like the other books in this series, you'll like this one.
Another success! RR Haywood does an amazing job with character development really making you want to know and cheer for them. Dan Morgan breathes life into them. love this series! I hope that audible steps up their game and catches up.
"Couldn't stop listening!"
This one was full of action! I thought Marcy and the infection had them in the beginning but Dave saves the day again. thank goodness!
If you've heard the other books and have fallen in love with them, this one is no different.
New people were introduced, and they blend in very well.
It's freakin awesome
Great series a must have for your collection. Get the whole series . If you love good zombie series. then your going to love this one
