A new landscape was formed after the storm, and with it the promise of a new beginning. One race to dominate this land. One race to survive. Words were uttered beneath the Saxon while Howie fought the undead. Words that brought a whole new pressure. To be relentless and unceasing. To charge forward and never give up. To do what it takes to survive. That pressure was building, and it became too much. Howie faltered, losing his mind as they ran through the fog and sought the doctors so desperately needed.

What made the experience of listening to The Undead, Part 16 the most enjoyable?

everything about this series of books is enjoyable, I find myself laughing crying and sometimes shouting out loud to not do things. Fast paced far fetched but utterly compeling

Who was your favorite character and why?

without doubt Dave, slowly coming out of his shell bodyguard and devoted warrior

What does Joe Jameson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

whole lot, he is both female and male, different characters are bought to life by his narration

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

If I had the time I would

Any additional comments?

Just finished this now waiting for part 17 and 18 to become available

What made the experience of listening to The Undead, Part 13 the most enjoyable?

Haywood draws you into the story thru the engaging characters listening to their highs and very very lows is addictive. I cannot wait for the next book to see how they all survive. Mr Howie, Dave Clarence fighting to survive fighting for humanity fighting to become the one race the right race.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Undead, Part 13?

The explosion at the fort, humans turning on those who are trying to help. Howie and Marcie coming together as a team

What about Joe Jameson’s performance did you like?

At first it was strange, but after one chapter felt good. He is very very good at each character makes them feel alive.

Peter Grant is learning magic fast. And it’s just as well - he's already had run-ins with the deadly supernatural children of the Thames and a terrifying killer in Soho. Progression in the police force is less easy, especially when you work in a department of two. A department that doesn't even officially exist. A department that if you did describe it to most people would get you laughed at.
