Summary

Kill the infection! Kill the infected!

In the aftermath of the battle for Monk's Island, Murphy has been nursing Zed back to health in a remote house at the west end of the lake. But every day they see helicopters cross the sky, heading south and then back north again. Zed wonders if the helicopters are proof that not all civilization has collapsed. He convinces Murphy to seek out the place where the helicopters are landing so they can find the answer to that question. What they find at the end of their journey is both more dangerous and more hopeful than either would ever have guessed.

NAILED IT! PERFECTION START TO FINISH!!

The plot line is (as always) phenomenal, and adding intrigue were some significant, powerful changes in the dynamics of Murphy and Zed’s group, resulting in reestablishing the game plan and expectations. Both Murphy and Zed have matured in leaps and bounds between episodes #1 and (this one) #7, putting a spotlight on their ever changing and developing friendship. When one is down, the other is right by their side, supporting and cheering them on till they are able to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and move on.
What a joy it is to have Mr. Sean Runnette pickup the narrating! I immediately recognized his infamous vocals from Mark Tufo’s “Zombie Fallout Series." Always a thrill listening to his (way above par) proficiency in bringing each character to life, giving one and all a voice... unique unto themselves.
His ability to accomplish this (much appreciated) feat, indubitably creates an astoundingly authentic/real experience for the listener, as he makes it possible to completely appreciate the singularity of every character. #Gifted!! Simply put, he NAILS EVERY WORD, keeping me entranced from beginning to end!!
This series is just flawlessly written and exceptionally clever. Sending much appreciation and cheers to Mr. Adair! [ : 0 )

Slow Burn is Well Done!

Any additional comments?

Another excellent addition to this series. I don't know how Bobby Adair writes these so fast and so well but I hope he keeps doing it. Zed and Murphy are back and facing down the infected, the slightly infected, the uninfected and some new threats. Sean Runnette does a great job (as always) by adding just the right amount of drama and sarcasm to the narration. Slow Burn is well done and worth a read/listen.

Why change the narrator?

What didn’t you like about Sean Runnette’s performance?

Sean Runnette's voice falls on my ears like nails on a chalkboard.

Any additional comments?

Sorry, Bobby. You lost a listener with the change to Sean. It's a shame because I really enjoy the story

Bring back Jason Damron to narrate!

Would you consider the audio edition of Slow Burn: City of Stin, Book 7 to be better than the print version?

Nope. I was really into Jason Damron's narration. Sean Runnette is just not doing it for me. I can't tell when Zed is talking, or if it's Murphy or some other character. I would buy this again if Jason Damron did the audio.

Sean's narration sounds as if your dad is reading to you; whereas Jason totally delivers the smart ass comments and utterances of the characters. Sean's just reads. Jason acts it out.

Any additional comments?

BRING BACK JASON DAMRON! He is totally believable as Zed, in particular, and Murphy, and the other characters.

Why would you change the narrator?

The narrator Sean has a good voice but it's nothing like the voices of the last narrators they were all quite similar. I couldn't even listen to this completely because I was being put to sleep. What a drastic change and I'm very bummed out because you also have the same narrator in the next book. So I'm through with the series I can't imagine that Bobby Adair doesn't realize the difference. Big mistake for the audio Book listeners.

Very disappointing narrator change

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Little inflection in his voice, a distracting whistling "s", and it was impossible to put this voice with the Zed I've come to know and love. It's like young, energetic, Null Spot Zed went from gung-ho White Slayer to a decrepit old man overnight. No offense meant to the narrator Sean, I'm sure he would be great in other books but his voice is just WRONG for Zed and crew. Where's the excitement? All of these books have been fast-paced and enthusiastically narrated and now I'm listening an old man talk thru his dentures about the good ole days. Yes, I'm very disappointed. Looks like for the rest of the series I'll be reading instead of listening or I'll never be able to stay awake to finish.

Any additional comments?

It's wrong to change the narrator this close to the end of the series, especially such a drastic change in voice and style! Maybe they could've at least gotten someone to try and keep up with what we've gotten used to? Zed is now a completely different person, as are all of the other characters. I miss the fun and exciting telling of the story by the previous narrator, who put so much effort and personality into each and every character. I will sorely miss listening to the rest of the series in my car. Sorry if I'm a little dramatic, just so disappointed as I've eagerly purchased each book and couldn't wait to start listening. Damn.

Love the series but not the new narrator

I've enjoyed every second of every book of this series but I'm afraid the narration on book 7 is a far cry from the first 6. I can only presume money was a factor in going to a new narrator?

the original narrator did a great job of changing voices to capture zed and Murphy and others they came into contact with like sgt. dalhoover and also a great job of creating suspense during tense moments with his inflection and sense or urgency. unfortunately the new one seems to have only one voice in his repertoire and no sense of the story itself as he reads at one pace with the same tone and inflection whether the characters are fighting for their lives or relaxing alone in a quiet moment.

luckily the characters and writing/story still feel like the prior books enough to make the series worth reading but for those who choose to do so it might be best to buy the paperbacks after book 6 or the disappointment in missing Murphys little laughs or zed's "whatevers" may be too much for many to overcome. book 8 is out on paper now...let's hope the author realizes how much was lost from changing the narrator and goes back to the original one before the series loses its audience and is forgotten
