Publisher's Summary

For Cade Grayson, father, husband, and former Delta Force operator, life has changed drastically over the course of 48 hours. He's watched the dead inexplicably return to life before his very eyes. He's lost many people near and dear to him, most dying unfathomably horrible deaths at the hands of the dead who have seemingly overnight taken over the big metropolis - their numbers and hunger for human flesh growing exponentially with each passing hour.

After having been forced to kill his reanimated neighbors in self-defense and then surviving the perilous overland journey from his home in Portland, Oregon, Cade finds temporary refuge inside the wire of a Special Forces garrison on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, Utah.

But his stay is short and he decides to strike out alone, resuming the search for his missing wife, Brook, and 11-year-old daughter, Raven, the only way he knows how - with a laser-like focus and full speed ahead.

So in the early morning hours on day four of what might be the United States and perhaps the entire globe's extinction-level event, he slips out Camp Williams' back gate riding a specially modified off-road motorcycle.

Armed and resupplied and with only a satellite phone connecting him to the crumbling world, Cade soldiers on eastbound - locked and loaded - with Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, his small family's last known whereabouts, dead set in his sights.

Meanwhile, 400 miles away in Colorado Springs, Colorado - the new capital of the United States, President-by-succession Valerie Clay works round the clock with what's left of the military to gather together the resources and scientific know-how necessary to stop the Omega Virus' rapid spread and, starting with Colorado Springs, rid the country of the multitudes of walking dead.

Will the 1900 miles and the millions of dead in Cade's path succeed in keeping him separated from his family?

Will mankind find a foothold against the dead and turn the tide of war?

Cade Grayson, locked and loaded, is determined to find out.

    Story
    "No holds barred zombie action."
    What made the experience of listening to Soldier On the most enjoyable?

    The writer is not the most eloquent , but he does make it realistic from a no man, woman or child is safe from the indiscriminate zombies perspective. There where things that happened that actually made you think of vulnerability is a weakness in a zombie apocalypse. Which is pretty true given the circumstances.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Soldier On?

    The book does not read like that. Its a chain reaction of events that develop the characters.


    What about Chris Patton’s performance did you like?

    He sounds young enough to pass the youth in the story but can man up to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No spoilers but the series does grow on you.


    Any additional comments?

    Can the team finish the audible series. I am eating it like candy. I particularly like the American pop culture references that I actually had to look up for clarity.

    Story
    "Main character is a jerk?"

    This is better than the first book. The women are getting some spunk and are much more realistic, and there are many new and interesting characters that are fleshing out well. One big butt - and that is the main character Cade. First, dumb annoying name. Second, he's a jerk. One character in particular seems to bring on his wrath and his crime? Being fat and a civilian. I'm former military and from a military family and I don't know a single soldier that thinks about civilians so negatively. Particularly special forces guys - they die and kill so that civilians can BE civilians. They stand between the worst the world (and undead ;) have to offer and the civilians they protect. I don't know any who would be so resentful and nasty just because a civilian acted like a civilian - scared s***less, confused, and not in top physical shape. Cade is just a mean jerk and not a good soldier. Other than that, good addition to the series.

    "a story of survival against all odds"

    Cade Grayson is a former Delta Force (Special Ops) soldier who is thrown into the middle of a zombie apocalypse when the “Omega” virus is unleashed on the human population. He continues to survive and search for his wife and daughter whom he can only hope are still alive.

    Narration for this was done by Chris Patton. Right now, since listening to Trudge and Soldier on, Chris Patton IS Cade Grayson. I love when an author can get the same narrator to continue a story. It helps with the feeling of completeness. Patton does a great job narrating Grayson, who is former Delta Force. Patton mixes in the right amount of “manliness” and intelligence to give Cade the perfect performance. Chesser should be extremely happy with the work Chris Patton has done for these novels.

    This book literally picks up with the next sentence from Trudge. And I’m happy that I got to listen to them in quick succession. Chesser is a wonderful author who is incredibly good at painting the scene without overdoing it.

    Soldier on is a story of survival against all odds. It’s a story that had me at the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Chesser throws in some teasers so that you aren’t sure what will happen next. All the while, you’re wondering what is going on with the other people in the world.

    In Soldier On the reader is given slightly more back story and even more information about what is going on. I really enjoyed this part of it because I love hearing where things came from and the backstory of how we got to the post part of post-apocalyptic. He sprinkles in some conspiracy theories too, which I really enjoyed. It gave the book a different edge than I was originally expecting.

    Overall, Soldier on was better than Trudge, and I loved Trudge. I’ve heard that these stories get better and better as they progress. Well, sign me up. I’m on board and want to continue following Cade and see what happens next.

    "Irritating, stupid conduct by the good guys"

    -Slight spoiler
    Most of the story is pretty good but....

    It's amazing, the bad guys, untrained and trained alike are all able to herd and control zombies willy nilly, while the good guys continuously get swarmed by the same and are constantly walking into ambush points even AFTER running into ambush' previously. Many times these are combat vets who would know better. Manufacturing drama for drama' sake is crap.

    "Improvement over book one; not."

    I followed up with book two in the hopes that it would improve over book one. It did not. The pace is rather choppy and I just couldn't get into the characters. The story is not terrible, just not for me. I'll still give it three.point.five for the effort.

    "circlejerk"

    literally a circlejerk of military, prepper, and zombie culture buzzwords. next to no plot or character development. i played it for some 10th group guys and they were cringing at the portrayal. probaby the first zombie related story that i couldnt finish.
