Summary

The full release of The Last Town serial, with new original content!

It started in the Middle East. A flu-like plague that infected thousands and killed roughly 10 percent of its victims. Those who died awoke once again, but they were no longer among the living - they came back as soulless, carnivorous corpses who desired only one thing: to feed on living human flesh.

As the infection spread, across Europe and the rest of the globe, cities were overwhelmed. Nations fell. Humanity flickered like a candle flame in the wind.

In the United States: the nation's great cities are becoming hunting grounds. New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles.... All are falling victim to hordes of shambling dead who want only one thing: to devour the living.

Single Tree, California, is a small resort town in Inyo County. Between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, it's easy to overlook. And that's exactly what the citizens of Single Tree want, for the stenches and those fleeing them to ignore the town long enough for it to be transformed into a desert fortress at the foot of Mount Whitney.

But time is not on their side. Not only do they have to worry about the dead.... they have to fear the living.

need to use sound reduction for better enjoyment

Great story but the background hissing noise on occasion was annoying.and detracted a little from the enjoyment. Otherwise it was a great book and performance.

Military and vehicles that’s about it.

Very disappointed with this one. It’s all
about fighting and either big or expensive vehicles and not a lot else. By the end, I didn’t even care who survived as there was hardly any character or real relationship development.

One of the best I've listened to.

This has got to be one of the most exciting zombie apocalypse novels I have listened to. It is long, 24+ hours and the writing is excellent, the action and tension unstoppable, and the characters well defined and quite likable. This is the tale of a billionaire industrialist providing masses of men, weapons and equipment at the beginning of the apocalypse to fortify and save his home town. The basic plot is quite unassuming, but as I’ve said the writing and tempo is excellent. I can heartily recommend this novel to any zombie fan.

Generic with poor audio

Not bad, but nothing new.

The standard zombie apocalypse story you have read 100 times.

Interesting enough to finish, though. Not a waste of a credit.

Narration was neutral at best, but a large portion of the audio is full of background static. White noise like you would hear in a really old recording. Unprofessional, as even inexpensive recording equipment or simple post-process could have prevented that from making the final cut.

Average Dystopian Tale

Very average dystopian tale. However, you get the whole series in one fix...24hrs. The story could have been taken much further in that time. Especially since the characters are well thought out and there is some intriguing concepts that could have been developed more.

Narration is awful, but I think it speaks to low production standards and not the narrator.

Terrible story and narration

The narration was painful to listen to and in the end I gave up. The story was drawn out with far too many characters and side stories going on. With no pause between jumping scenes and characters the story is just one big muddle. Such a shame as I have enjoyed Stephen Knights precious zombie books immensely.

Smh this is trash Done with SK

Love how they made sure all the black characters were escaped criminals that they shot them in the legs to help stall the zombies after making them basically slaves. Screw you SK. You are trash

Lots of static! Would not recommend it.

The story itself wasn’t bad... the constant hissing and sometimes actual voices in the background was really annoying and made me wish I hadn’t bought this. It was very disappointing that audible would put something on its site that was such poor quality. I have never had a problem with any of the books before this piece of garbage .
