Summary

Twelve days ago a deadly infection spread across the world. Populations have been destroyed. Law and order are gone. Life as it was known has ceased. The infected are now the strongest species, and survival has become brutal.

Heather has survived by hiding. Hiding is her thing. People are bad. What others do to survive is no concern of hers. On a mission for supplies, she makes a decision that not only places her in danger but will change everything she ever knew - or believed in....

Set against the backdrop of The Undead - the UK's best-selling zombie horror postapocalyptic series - Blood on the Floor is a haunting tale of courage and loyalty. Listen as a stand-alone or chronologically between parts 15 and 16!

JUST. BUY. IT.

I have never written a review of anything.

I have had 10 or so audio books to date, and had mixed thoughts on it compared to reading yourself - value of (how can huge success authors like Peter Hamilton have such appalling narrators who you can’t get past their voices to submerge in the story - almost every review says the same.. doesn’t make sense)

I have read all of the Undead series up until book 25, utterly absorbed into that world and invested in it’s characters.. check every couple of weeks to see if 26 is on the horizon.. have read everything else Haywood has written - the latest WorldShip Humility getting close to as good as the Undead series)

I bought the free stand alone taster episode , no doubt issued to reel existing readers like me into getting the audio books - fair play, it is a good idea (though can’t you be a bit more generous with grouping the books together a bit - as has been done with the written version?? - 25+ credits is a hell of a lot to commit to..). The guy reading did a good job and made me realise the value of listening to every word spoken and coming alive - still, 25 credits..? It’s not like you can just buy the first few and stop..

I bought Blood on the Floor audio book as a stand-alone, instead of the main books, to give it a proper go and see if it would hold my attention for 7 or more hours..

What can I say to possibly communicate just how good this is..?

JUST BUY IT, SHUT THE WORLD OUT AND GET READY FOR A RIDE YOU WILL NEVER FORGET..!

Period.

Full stop.

Don’t even bother read any other reviews.

JUST DO IT!

Why?

An amazing, rich, enthralling, full-on yet tender and heart wrenching journey..

Rachel Hines has a voice so perfect to read out-loud, it’s like being wrapped in silk.. that is one moment one moment perfect English rose elocution, one moment total Cornish tones, all engaging, all enrapturing..

Whilst as a red blooded male I cannot lie and not say hearing a beyond sexy English perfectly poised voice say ‘f..k’ made my heart miss a beat every so often, I can say that she does not in any way trade or indulge on this inevitable impact and I can imagine women being as enthralled and engaged by her as much as - well, every man on the planet..

Rachel, if you ever read this - I hope you go on to narrate 100’s more books, yours is a rare talent.

An equal match to Haywoods’s

Annoying

Ok for a while but gets a bit long winded and had stopped enjoying it by the end. The kids are really annoying in the middle and felt like throwing my phone away. I wouldn't bother.

Excellent story

I didn't expect to enjoy this story as much as the rest of the undead series because it doesn't follow Howie, Dave and the group. But I was pleasantly surprised. I loved this book. Bloomin' loved it. As always, RR Haywood's characterisations are fabulous and I enjoyed getting to know Heather.

I didn't listen to this before listening to book 16. But already knowing the ending of this story did not detract from it in any way. I can highly recommend this site sorry to The Undead series.

it's amazing!

I love the narrator and I really enjoyed hearing about the gang from a different perspective.
Another excellent read,. if you don't know, this should be listened to after book 15 in the undead series. it's basically book 15.5.
Enjoy!

just about enjoyed it

The story in full wasn't too bad, liked the interaction with original characters but the main character rather annoyed me at times.

too much waffle

I love this series but the way the children are portrayed written just bored me. The end of the book is great but this is definitely one of the slowest and hardest to get into.

Great read

Heather's story, if you have read the Undead series this book will have a totally different meaning to you. it filld in the gaps of what happened to Paco Mguire and Heather before they met the pack. You don't have to have listened to the other series though. This book stands alone and is a fantastic read by itself. I do encourage you however to read The Undead by RR Haywood, you will not be disappointed.

Started so poetically.

When this started, I genuinely thought it was going to be outstanding. It was almost poetic in its descriptors of the virus and how it took hold. Then the excessive descriptors of the lead menstruating and how she felt it start and it immediately soaked through her underwear, jeans and began dripping on the ground. At this point I should have stopped listening. Then she puts screen cleaning wipes inside herself to stop the bleeding after shaping it into a tampon…….

A few chapters later the lead female then farts in front of a zombie and because she has no man or dog to blame it on has absolutely no dignity left and screams in humiliation and would rather be dead.

Good, but....,

Perfect book to get to know more about other characters.
But I want to finish the series and I’m starting to get confused with the wait in between books.
Maybe you can write a rough out line of all the books, just so we can make sense of it without reading them all again.
These books kept me going during lockdown. I search all the time for something similar, but nothing matches up. In fact I have got to point where I’m missing these fictional people 🤦‍♀️

Dont bother with this

I enjoy the Undead series though even that is getting long in the tooth now. I was looking forward to seeing what would be done with this. My only comment is Dont Bother. Bad attempts at trying to link in scenes and characters like Paco as a zombie just screamed Try Hard. If you want to spend over an Hour listening to how a female tries to stop her period than this book is for you... Was not amuseing - was pathetic.

Good and Bad

This is my first Zombie book and probably my last.
The first half of the book was pretty good and very funny in places. But the second half of the book made me want to walk into book and slap some sense into Heather and those spoiled ungrateful children they picked up especially the youngest Anya. If it were my child throwing those temper tantrums and putting the whole group at risk. You should have bought muzzle and a spanking she would never forget.Then the book just got monotonous and very repetitive.

Rachel Hine was good with the delivery of the story

Special Story

Well that was a lovely surprise. This should be read after book/day 15. Her monster. Everything I can say would be a spoiler. But this side story, adds to the whole series.

Interesting- Woman's Perspective

That was interesting- it's a zombie story from the perspective of a woman (periods in the zombie apocalypse and all)-seriously, I did not know that the author was a man until I looked him up after completing the book. The only other author that has done that convincingly for me was Stephen King in Gerald's Game. I read/listen to a lot of zombie books and I'm always purchasing books when someone says "different," and they usually really aren't. But this one was unique and a lot of fun. She's a strong heroin, there's a touch of (really odd) romance, and a lot of action. Obviously a dog lover. Definitely worth a credit!

I want more!

So this book should have been read between the last 2 Undead Series...but I didn't know that. However, I read it after & it still is a great back story for Heather & Paco. Trust me, you love it & it synchronizes great with the Series. Just listen & enjoy!!! ;)

Bridget Jones' Dairy of the Apocalypse

That's the title that this book should have been. If you've ever wondered what Bridget Jones would do at the end of the world, I had not, but now we find the answer. I thought I wouldn't be able to get through the entire book, but it's one of those works that grows on you. it's an interesting concept and a new take on zombies. It made the perfect spring break listen.

I liked it until...

I really was enjoying the book until the annoying bratty children... If I had wanted to listen to whiney children, I'd hang out at the McDonald's play place. It was not at all pleasant to listen to the book after that. Skipped over big portions to not have to listen to the children's portions.
