Summary

Retired, divorced banker, and now hot air balloon pilot Tim Feely doesn't know the world is being eaten alive by zombies. It's early in the morning, and the first of the undead are only now appearing on the eastern seaboard of the United States.

Right in Tim's town, in fact.

So when he takes Julie and Lucas up into the air for their first hot air balloon ride, before the news reports start, and before the car accidents and looting begins, he has no idea just how crazy the ride will be. After all, Lucas was just bitten by a "crazy heroin addict".

This standalone novella set in the apocalypse of Adrian Ring shows how one man, trapped with a ticking time bomb, tries to escape the inevitable to reunite with his daughter Malinda on the ground below.

Of course...the world he's tying get back to will never be the same if he puts his feet on the ground, ever again.

Unique story

I'll say the same thing I said in my review of the book, I haven't been this into a book about a balloon ride since I read Around the World in 80 Days as a kid. Chris took something as unassuming as a balloon ride and filled it with suspense .

Also James Foster delivered another wonderful performance as the voice of AUD.

Adrians world does not disappoint!

This book was great! I love the Adrians Undead story series. It is refreshing to hear stories from the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. The scenario of being in a hot air balloon was definitely a good outllook on what could happen in that situation. I also loved the other storyline in this book and it was just as good if not better. It was definately a surprise and I was very pleased. I look forward to more Adrians Undead stories in the future! If you like zombie stories, you will love this. You don't have to read the AUD series before you read this book. I do suggest reading the entire AUD seriesfor any zombie fans.

Another great achievement.

I am always impressed by the details that the auther brings to the world he is creating. I have enjoyed the Audible version of the books as they allow me to enjoy when driving and at work. But remember these are books and should be read. There is something about the quite reeses of the mind as we read, alone. Thank you Chris for your efforts.

#5 in a great zombie series of side stories & extr

Book 5 in this series is well written, entertaining from start to finish. Very hard to put down because of characters you love and hate.
