New to the Hot Springs PD, Lisa Reynolds was not all that welcomed by her coworkers, especially those who were passed over for the position. But it didn't matter anymore. Her 30-day probation period ended on the same day of the Z-poc's arrival. Overnight the world goes from bad to worse as thousands die in the initial onslaught. National Guard and regular military units deployed the day before to the north leave the city in mayhem. All directions lead to death until one unlikely candidate steps forward with a plan.

What did you like best about this story?

That it change someones life for the better

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The one about Craig! It was so very well written. Normally we would probably think that Neanderthals where grunting and uncivilised (they where by our standards), but what do we know about the times they lived in? I absolutely LOVED this scene!

Often when I have listened or read a book that was well written, one that really have something to say, and moves my mind, I think this author must have some wisdom, some real life experience, to write something like this! Well done Joseph Hansen!

As a hunter in postapocalyptic central Texas, Scratch Sullivan has survived zombies, vampires, rogue militia units - heck, he even killed a werewolf with nothing more than a spear and a bad attitude. But what's a man to do when the local werewolf pack destroys his town and abducts his best girl? If you're Scratch Sullivan, you get spittin' mad - and then you get retribution. Even if an army of the undead and an entire pack of 'thropes sits in your way.

Army Ranger and Afghanistan war vet Scratch Sullivan has adapted well to the zombie apocalypse. Or as well as can be expected, considering that society has collapsed, the population is decimated, and Scratch hunts monsters for a living. But hey, at least he's still living. Thing is, Scratch is happy enough with the odd job killing THEM and occasionally shacking up with his on-and-off girlfriend, Kara. But when Scratch is tipped off to a potential undead incursion into the safe zone he protects, he's forced to head straight into the heart of the deadlands.

Aidan "Scratch" Sullivan is a former army ranger and Afghanistan War vet trying to achieve some semblance of normalcy while he deals with the psychological aftereffects of two combat tours in the 'Stan. But when the bombs fall and the dead walk, Scratch is forced to risk life and limb to rescue his aging parents before zombies overrun their quiet community. And to do it, he'll need to traverse half the state of Texas while dealing with out-of-control military units, violent redneck looters, and all manner of evil things that go bump in the night.

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

I love this genre! And listening to a great narrator who gives life to the characters and the story is what makes this story so enjoyable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Aiden of course!! He is such a great character! One other reviewer (amazon kindle) Don Kidwell was spot on describing him, he said:"I really enjoyed the ex-Army Ranger protagonist in this horror book for the small things that made him all the more human like occasional panic attacks, honoring the deceased when crossing their paths and for those occasional moments of having the wool pulled over his eyes - added some depth/realism in my opinion. Not to say he wasn't a kickass character and could definitely deal it out when necessary as survival of himself and those that matter was his ultimate goal."I agree with him wholeheartedly !!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

There so many! When Aiden meets the first zombie, when he meets the dog! When he meets the character that is worse than the zombies... there is many can't pick one out!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried at the scene when Aiden met his dad, very moving!

Any additional comments?

Really good book, and S.W. Salzman is a superb narrator!
