Summary

The rules of the road are much different when there are zombies blocking your path.

Matthew, Carl, and Sergio brave the toughest obstacles on the road in this new world. Nothing could have prepared them for what they would encounter. After coming across a well-defended base, they desperately try to make allies. But some of the members of the group have other ideas.

The zombies are everywhere. It’s more dangerous than ever to survive. The new members of their group want to help them survive. But when tensions rise, and one of the members gets lost to the zombies, will they be able to stand by their ethics?

Zombie Annihilation is the second book of the Last Man Standing series.

For the others who can't protect themselves.

The three soldiers had gone in search of laboratory items requested by the two scientists in their little group, hoping to find a cure for the virus infecting their world. The streets of New York were teaming with the zombie-like creatures intent on killing, but some areas seemed quiet in comparison. Very strange. As they travelled through the city they also looked for survivors to add to the small community, Matthew still hurting from the death of his wife.

Zombie Annihilation is a balanced mixture of action and character development, with just enough of both to make this story both different and interesting. The second in a series, it is advisable, but not essential, to have read part one. The book ends on a climax which will have readers waiting for the next installment. Throughout, the narration by Andrew Werhlen is paced to match the text, delivered in fast clipped sentences with clarity and underlying excitement. He gives differentiated voice to each of the protagonists and enhances the reading experience.

Zombie based storylines can become very similar but Max Lockwood brings just enough originality to his book to lift it from the norm. I was fortunate in being freely gifted a complimentary copy of Zombie Annihilation by the rights holder, after I requested it, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. It is a worthwhile addition to the bookshelves of all who enjoy the zombie genre.

A good second episode

I felt that this book ended too quickly, it seemed like it was an episode instead of a full story.Luckily I have read the first story so that helped.
The narrator was excellent and really helped moving the story along.
I would enjoy hearing the next episode.

Nicely done twist to the zombie scenario

The story started out with the typical zombie storyline- a few people trying to enter a site to get supplies, hordes of zombies, close calls and smashed skulls. I was pleasantly surprised to find the story started to veer once the trio meet a few strangers who lead them to a defended neighborhood. Here they try to figure out what secrets these people seem to be hiding and determine if they can indeed be allies. The trio have a group of friends back at their base and their friends safety comes first.
This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another. Despite not listening to the first book, I did not have any issues getting into this story. This book ends with the main storyline coming to a conclusion, yet we have a reveal that leads us to the next book.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator and I would listen to another. I got into the story due to his great narration. The character voices were well done- including the females. He did not overdo the fighting scenes.

There are no explicit sex scenes or excessive violence. I don’t recall any swearing. If there was some, it was minimal for me not to recall it.

Overall a good zombie story!

There's plenty of action in this book with three soldiers defending themselves and other against zombies. Matt, Carl and Sergio come across many obstacles with many close calls. On the road they run across two young women and oblingly take them to their base. Its not like the others they've seen. There isn't zombie for miles, the place has hot water, the food is a bit skimpy but the rooms are luxurious with stocked mimi bars. Something is up with the place. Before long they find out why.

The plot is standard but the writing is great. The author builds the characters and giving them spirit and identity. The story is fast paced. The narrator moves along at a good pace to the plot. Unfortunately I wasn't able to listen to this in one sitting but it was easy to pick back each day without feeling lost. I also haven't read the previous book in this series and didn't feel as though I missed a bunch of stuff. That's a huge plus for the author.

Exciting zombie story!

Was not my favorite but good twist at the end

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

So, for me, this book suffers the same issue the first one did. There just is not as much action as you'd expect from a Zombie Apocalypse book. I don't know, it just kind of underwhelmed me again. Andrew Wehrlen's narration is really the only reason I finished this book too. The twist at the end, though, did grab my attention. So I will probably continue the series to find out what happens.

Second book in the series

This is the second book in this series. Characters continue to battle humans and their own minds. I really liked the twist at the end. It was very interesting. I really hope for more zombies in the next book. The narrator does a good job distinguishing between the male characters' voices. I received this for free for an honest review.

Still a struggle for me.

The first book of the series was hobbled with little action. For me, I’m afraid the second book is not much better. There is plenty of conversation and much to do with the characters interaction. The zombies still maintain back-burner status. Not until the very end does an interesting twist take place that will bring much needed life to the plot. Perhaps the next book will be the charm. Three.point.five for the effort. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

Good take on the ZA genre

Great story. I could see what was coming next, so I gave it 4 stars. I like the Z's to do the unexpected....like show up for a blind date? Anyway, I do recommend this series. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Not bad but could've been better

I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

This wasn't a bad story but it could've been a lot better. Matthew is a former soldier and while he has PTSD, a lot of the things he and the others do just seem stupid. They take stupid risks and don't seem to always think things through when they do plan. They drive around the city without any plan on where to go and they don't bother trying to look up a way to get to where they want. Granted there aren't phone books or anything anymore but there are maps. All they had to do was stop at a gas station or a library and grab some.

The zombies in this story don't seem like zombies either. They are infected, they do try to chase people down and try to eat them, but you can kill them the same way you can a normal human. Slit their throats, stab them in the chest or head. They just didn't seem like the normal zombies I'm used to and while that isn't necessarily a bad thing, it did make it harder to understand why they were having such a hard time surviving. There was a mother with a baby wandering the streets with just a knife, how hard could it really be? And where are the police and military? This is supposed to take place in New York but it didn't feel like New York. There were hardly any people, alive or zombies, and there just seemed to be convenient buildings nearby all the time. An office building, a bodega, a grocery store and a hotel and they all seemed to be in the same few blocks. Just seemed odd to me. Maybe it's possible but it didn't feel right as I read it. Also, Matthew, Surge, and Carl seemed way too trusting when they run into the girls and even when they're at the gated community. It all seemed too easy when they were in the community and why on God's green Earth would the mayor tell them what she did! That really made no sense!

Also, how convenient was it that Ellie was the one that created the virus? How did she and Matthew even run into each other? I can't see how a scientist, doing what she was doing, would be in New York. There just seemed to be a lot of things that didn't fit right, especially the timeline. Everything seemed to have been going on for a long while but the way everyone was talking it sounded like it was actually just a matter of a few weeks, months at the most.

I was happy to hear Mr. Wehrlen's voice though. He narrates a few of my favorite zombie series and hearing him is always a treat. He manages to bring life to the characters and make me interested in them and what happens to them. I like hearing his unique take on things.

Overall, this isn't a bad book or even a bad story but I wish it had been written a little bit better and the problems with it had been straightened out and tweaked so they made the story stronger. If you love zombie series, there are better ones out there but this isn't too bad if you're looking for something to add to your collection.
