Summary

Electric wheels. Axes and leather. And the long road into madness.

After securing the vast government bunker of Whitecap and learning of her affliction, Collie decides to head west to challenge the sinister road clan known as the Leather and kill its leader, the Dog Tongue.

Along for the ride is Gus Berry, who knows full well the very thing that is killing Collie is also keeping her alive. His growing affection for the operator is only matched by his dislike of the one called Milo, the very man who shot her, who Collie insists on bringing along on their mission. Gus won’t allow her to venture alone into the Leather-ruled westlands, yet he also knows that to go with her means to die inside.

Together, the special operator, the reluctant survivalist, and the unleashed prisoner will have to depend on each other as they tread into the unknown. There, they will face an ominous new order. An order bent on creating a medieval empire upon the broken wills and spines of their minions, all the while weaponizing the very thing that destroyed civilization in the first place.

Behind Collie and Gus is a pocket of humanity struggling to survive. Ahead of them, an insane army. And to save their people, Collie and Gus will have to kill the one called the Dog Tongue.

What they intend to do is dangerous. Hopeless. Mindless.

The best one yet.

Didn't think that the series could get any better, but Mindless is brilliant. The story goes at breakneck speed.
You have to put your life on hold when you listen to this because you can't stop listening to it.

Great series. Really liked the characters and looking forward to the next book. Being read by my favourite narrator is a total plus.

Gus just keeps on going.

This is probably the best zombie series I've ever read. Even after 6 books, this story goes into new ways and never seems to tire. Gus the lead is going with Collie to kick some Leather arse and it's as glorious, shocking, bloody, and overall ruthless as the last 5 books.

I've enjoyed all of Mr. Blackmore's books but I hope this series will end soon as I hate seeing good stories get strung out for that one more adventure.
*I'm staring at you The Walking Dead

I gave it 4 stars because I felt some characters made choices they wouldn't do normally (surrendering, panicking) after everything they have gone through, but was added in to keep the story flowing.

If you want a zombie series to read don't think and just get this. Personally would recommend getting it on audio as R.C. Bray does a fantastic job of telling the story.

We need book 7 and we need it now!

Keith and R.C. did it again! Guss has to be one of the best characters out there! This needs to be made into a tv series, screw the walking dead we want Guss!

ONE DESPERATE SITUATION TO THE NEXT, AGAIN & AGAIN!!!

OMG!!! What is with this author?? Ruining a perfectly good story with OVERLY DRAMATIC scenarios every other chapter! It is flat out annoying. I love this genre, the zombie, eotw fantasies and most supernatural styled worlds. What gets under the skin is good authors making beginners mistakes. Mistakes like trying to keep a full length run of suspense throughout the entire book. I have to skip chapters or jump to the end in order to make story worth listening too because it feels like it will never end for find a satisfactory conclusion. Also, mistakes like ignoring basic human psychology and disregarding common sense. This author tries but fails miserably. He also drops the ball when it comes to military tactics while writing in main characters that are supposed to former special forces or high speed low drag soldiers and Marines. They do things and perform ridiculous actions that NO trained military personnel would ever consider! It is highly frustrating. The only saving grace for this book is RC Bray. He is an excellent narrator and brings the book to life. This series is not worth the cost of the credits required to purchase it.

One To Far For The Series

I preordered this book because I have read the whole series. That made this a giant disappointment when I started reading it and there was not only anything new but the zombies had turned into friendly chums to have as pals. I gave it my best try to force through but only made four of sixteen-hour book.

I am in love with this series.

I've listened to the whole series now about 5 or 6 times. I hope Mr. Blackmore keeps writing them. I'm anxious to find out more about the Mountianeer that's in Banth.

Did IQs suddenly drop?

RC Bray still brings a phenomenal performance but unlike the previous books in this chapter there are many uncharacteristic logic mistakes with characters not making sound decisions. examples: a super scifi limo that Collie never tells anyone how to operate?, why mention that the little girl may be special and never deal with it again, wouldn't someone have just killed the Spider about 3 times, why would Collie not just shoot the tires out when he escapes in a regular pick-up, would have been nice to have the big bad suffer more in their death scene, not giving a gun to Top Gun gets ridiculous, etc. Also we the series continues to get more and more littered with homophobic slurs, unnecessary. Still, there is good humor sprinkled about and the action is nonstop. Hopefully the next in the series will fix some of these opportunities and be as awesome as the rest of the books.

waiting for the next part

I like that these books come out every so often so you can get back to the story. I find I miss the mountain man saga then. this book perfectly sets up another book. I really liked that another bottle showed up that was perfect and unexpected!

Buddy cop movie...

There was too much action, not enough story. The actual story was pretty thin. The buddy cop relationship was obvious and nothing new. Very surface. All this being said, I still enjoyed it.

Bray always gives a good read. He's perfect for this series.

Well this is for me

Well this is it for me. I'm done with this nonsense, once they were willing to give up the limousine for a child that was already dead this far in the apocalypse I was done. Tell me what justification they could give to get out the car. NONE, all it does is makes them look like none of them should be alive this far in. I can't believe it, I really can't believe the crazy of how they tried to justify that. If they were going to have it go this way, Gus should've just let that chick kill him at the house because him killing his Brother who was the most successful of the new world warlords would have been better alive. He could've saved human kind.
