I've been looking at this book in my library for some time now. I did not want to start it as it would mean the end of the best audio series I have ever listened to (and I've listened to a lot).
everyone involved in this should be very proud of themselves. strip away the action and zombies and you find a story about the human heart and all it can take.
very moving. any words I want to put to describe this have been used already so all I can do is recommend Arisen to everyone I know.
I tip my hat to you Mr Fuchs.

From the 11th storey of a Los Angeles high-rise, Nate looks out on the city - the traffic, the trees, and the beach beyond. He breathes deeply. And then he moves one foot off the ledge and into thin air. But before he can jump, gunshots ring out from within the building. A robbery is in progress. And Nate, with nothing to lose but the life he was about to give up, decides to intervene. What happens next plunges Nate into mortal danger…and reunites him with the family he hasn't known for years - a family he will do anything to protect.

I love Greaney style of writing, very little fluff, great action. If I had a complaint it's that I preferred Court when he was on the run. His paranoid behaviour is missed.

Disappointed with this. A so called elite unit....jumping at shadows. I gave it 2 hours and said no thanks. I think the Arisen series has set the bar too high for other authors.

I remember watching the movie when I was young and loving it. So I said I'd give the book a go when I saw it on audible. The first half was boring but when they raise the titanic it picks up. The book is very very dated. Also it has to be the most sexist book I ever read. Put it this way if you met Dirk Pitt in real life you'd make sure your wife was not with you as he'd probably slip into the toilet and have sext with her 😊. I won't be dipping my toe into Dirk Pity's world again .

In the north, the collapsed section of the Wall is defended only by the decimated remains of 2 PARA. Even reinforced by Jameson and the exhausted Royal Marines of One Troop, it's a doomed delaying action at best - and the last choke point in the entire ZA faces an incoming tide of dead stretching to the ends of the Earth. Meanwhile, hunkered down at CentCom, the unified ranks of our heroes, led by Ali and Fick, work furiously to fortify and reinforce what will be humanity's final fallback position - forever.
