Summary

In Northeast Texas, the epic adventure of a group of survivors begins as they take refuge in a hospital, waiting to see if the worldwide red infection can be stopped before all humanity is wiped out. 

As victims awaken from a coma, they now have the basic need to attack loved ones, spread the infection, and feed on warm flesh. Only rage remains. In days, the dead outnumber the living, and the US turns to the ultimate weapons to stop the infection.

In a world filled with zombies, survivors find that the living can be far more inhumane and cruel than anything they have ever imagined, as raiders scavenge for supplies, and lawlessness and hatred are the norm. Both outlaws and zombies crave meat. In this time of hopelessness and horror, a bullet to the brain may be the kindest action.

George, an older, retired police officer, sets his own terms: fight and survive or go the way you want, but don’t let the zombies win. He explains that everyone is responsible for his or her own fate, and if that means going out on unpopular terms, then so be it. 

Len, a retired Marine; a quiet cowboy, Kim; a hot-tempered Hispanic woman, Julia; and a compassionate young woman, Beth all begin their terrorizing journey, not only to survive but also to establish a new society, find love and joy in a barren, bloody landscape, and to face gathering enemies. 

The first of the compelling series, George’s Terms introduces a memorable cast of characters and a terrifying vision of a world, burned to rubble and filled with flesh-eating adversaries. As each person faces inner fears and new roles, he finds law and morality must be redefined. 

Zombies are used as the vehicle, but the story is all about what humans will do to survive when the odds are stacked against them. Luckily, for the survivors, George has given them the terms that may keep humans from becoming extinct.

3 out of 5

The narrator is one of my favourite narrators and I enjoyed his performance however I did not really “connect” with the storyline or the characters. I felt that there was too much going on at times without enough detail. Series has possible potential.

Zombie apocalypse story

Zombie apocalypse story with potential to become a good series. Several of the characters were likeable and I honestly want to know what happens to them and how their journey goes. I will be looking for book 2. I received this for free for an honest review.

A good zombie post apoc book

George's Terms. .
First book I've read by Catt Dahman and am really impressed and entertained, looking forward to the follow up book.
Fast paced with lots of blood and gore - just how zombie fiction should be.
There are a lot of characters some big ones and lots of minor ones,
S.W Salzman's performance in this audiobook is first rate. And compliments the storyline.
This is a top class zombie fiction.

Survival of the Zombies

First of all you need to love zombie stories as is an older book but still has much gore and violence. It has many characters and at times humorous as well as sad moments. Really enjoyed retired police officer George as well as Beth, Len and Kim to name a few all out just to survive. Would listen to 2nd book as great narration.

Potential for growth

This is very interesting, the added mix of the problems after the government response gives even more realism to the story.

I'm looking forward to the series and to see where it goes from here. The narrator had a good variety of voices and ways of keeping the listener engaged and interested as well.

not a bad zombie story

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I enjoyed this book somewhat, but found myself taking stars off for the characters and their interactions as well as the reasoning behind the outbreak. Some of the characters came across as stereotypical and at some points I had a hard time believing some of the interactions between said characters. I understand this may have been used to move the story along so it certainly wasn't a dealbreaker. As for the reason behind the outbreak, I get the need for suspending one's disbelief somewhat with these types of zombie stories. As someone with a somewhat minor science background though, I found this very hard to do. Perhaps the author was paying homage to The Stand? Who is to say, but if an explanation had been left out of the story for this first book, I would have been perfectly fine with this as the one given is (at least to me) pretty hard to swallow. Would I read more in this series? Sure I would, the action scenes and level of detail were enjoyable as were the short side stories that helped break up the main story.

Terms of survival!

All-in-all a fairly good post-apocalyptic tale of survival. First, a virus is set loose, then the warheads begin falling. Was this our own attempt at containment, a terrorist attack, or war? Our leader, Len is a retired Army Officer. Len manages to get some survivors together, find arms and supplies, and hold up in a partially destroyed hospital. The account shares personality and background on some of the survivors so that we get to know and possibly care about them. It also chronicles the group’s successes and failures at rescuing additional survivors. Distrust and squabbles come and go. Tension and violence rule the world.

Has potential...

George's Terms (Z Is for Zombie, Book 1) by Catt Dahman and narrated by S.W. Salzman started out with a bang and fizzled a little too much for my personal taste.

It’s a fairly typical zombie tale that has more of a character-driven focus. The action that occurs kept my attention but it’s sporadic and unfortunately the unneeded dialogue bogged the story down. There were a couple things that helped make it stand out from others- psychic and different kinds of zeds. Honestly if the dialogue issue was fixed, it’d be a great book. As it is currently, it didn’t engage me enough.

The narrator, S. W. Salzman, is the reason I wanted to listen to this book. He does an excellent job and I’m not sure I would’ve finished the book if he hadn’t been narrating.

I’d recommend if you’re looking for a zombie fix.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: it’s a zompoc tale- death, crazies, agent orange, prostitution, racial slurs, bomb, abortion mention, and possibly others I’m forgetting.

George's Terms

I really enjoyed this book. This is one of the better zombie type stories out there. I loved that most of the characters weren't one-dimensional. I thought the narrator did a really good job. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Old Guys vs Zombies

Overall a pretty good story with decent characters. Most of the characters are decent and what you'd like to think would be the reaction of most people in a crisis. The story moves along well and keeps you entertained.
First part of a 3 part series. Hopefully the rest of the series will be released.
Well narrated by S.W. Salzman.
