Summary

The operators face their demons

Mission complete, Alpha team enjoys their first chance to breathe and tend to their humanity. But the darkness leaves them alone with their demons - and those who have found love may yet learn that it is fatally incompatible with duty...

The carrier faces unimagined threats

The JFK steams for Africa, despite rumors of lone Zulus still wandering below decks. But when Dr. Park and Sarah Cameron are trapped in an isolated compartment, they learn that one Zulu can kill you just as dead as ten million - while up on the flight deck, a lone assassin inflicts horrific damage on the hopes for a cure...

London preps for humanity's last stand

Amarie and the Tunnelers find themselves resettled in a chillingly post-Apocalyptic London, where mini-outbreaks are hushed up, and the displaced will cut your throat just to take your shoes - all as history's largest fixed fortification goes up along the M25 ring-road around the Capital...

The royal marines drop into hell

Lieutenant Jameson and his battered Royal Marines launch by air to retrieve a rare biomedical device, which is indispensable to developing a vaccine - but which lies buried at the center of a perilously rotting structure in a city of millions (all dead). When the walls come down, and the horde descends, Jameson may be the last man standing - and his only chance of survival lies with a lone Apache pilot who refuses to obey her orders to abandon him... Hope survives - but the story of humanity is not yet written.

Still going strong

I have really enjoyed this series and am clearly not alone. It continues to deliver maximum zombie action and a fast pace. I would say that for the first time I think perhaps the story could have done with a little more depth around the scenes in London. Some more effort to build on the atmosphere and situation for the characters there.

That said, this series has been fast-moving from the start so I may be splitting hairs. I still can't wait for the next one to appear on Audible!

Good but too short!

Once again the story was well narrated by RC Bray. Apart from the action on the Kennedy, the novel is quite undeveloped in terms of plot and story compared with the previous books. Having said that, I still enjoyed it. The ending is pretty predictable, as is the cliffhanger- designed to make you get the next in the series and somewhat annoying. However, my main quibble is that this novel is too short to warrant using a whole credit. I felt a bit short-changed!

drawn out.

good story but painstaking detail and catastrophe upon catastrophe drains the chance of 5 stars. I would like to hear the main plotline move on a bit quicker

Good story and performance, poor value

Book is too short and finishes too abruptly. Poor value but good story and performance

Stunning

The fact they take the time to develop the characters across the whole series so far gives you a feeling of engagement without getting boring. You genuinely are willing them on and to succeed. I am more of a sci fi person but I am gripped with this series.

Each book tells more of the story and you just want to know what happens next.

but I'm hooked on the series and can't wait for the next one to come out.

Superb

I seriously can't get enough of this series. It is absolutely tremendous!! I almost don't want to listen to the last book in the series, because I don't want it to end. Love it!!

Not bad, but not great

I love the series, but I thought this one was a rare miss. I assumed I was about a 3rd of the way in, as the end credits kicked in. I genuinely couldn't tell you anything that happened in this book, there is no "big event". It felt more like the extended ending to book 5, that was cut out in editing. Still love the series, Hoping book 7 gets back to what we love

Exciting as Ever!

Book 6 was a perfect continuation of the last, and it provided more depth into the characters. I can't wait for the remaining books to be put out in audiobook format. R. C. Bray is perfect!

Solid zombie story

This is one of my favorite zombie series. The story is good and there is plenty of action. I like the characters and the narrator does a fine job. I recommend this to all survival horror fans.

It ain't over yet.

If you've listened to all the other books up to this point you need to keep going.

Great continuation...and still the most witty

This is such a fantastic serjes, the best in so many ways. Besides all of the superb elements you would expect in this genre of fiction, I find the writing the most witty. I find myself laughing out loud when the "operators" make their wise cracks.

My new standard for five star perfection!

Would you listen to The Horizon again? Why?

The only bad element of this series is I can't listen to anything else; nothing offers the same experience. This edition to this series is easily as good as the last and it just keeps going and getting better. I usually look forward to a good ending; I hope this series never does. The characters, THE NARRATION (absolutely the best of the best) and the flow of this series has me driving unnecessarily for hours and miles so I can find out what happens next. For the first time the end snuck up on me, wasn't expecting it and was a little sad it got here, come on #7!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Horizon?

When I hit select and purchased 5.0. That was the beggining of my most enjoyable listining experience yet and a visit to a world created by a master story creator and absolutely the most creative narrator in the business, without exception.

Any additional comments?

Take all my other ratings and throw them away, I have a new standard.

Over before you knew it

I guess it's a little like speed blindness; compared to the last book and the battle of the JFK this book seems so slow and suddenly it was over before I realized; with the worse cliff hangar ending ever!

Good opportunity to get to know the characters as they sail on the Kennedy, I'm finally able to tell whose who now, rather than they all being anonymous tough guys. Even Park was cool to get to know. I'm so glad that there are no twits you hate like in other books. Nice book, keep reading!

Just take my money!

This book has to be the worse value ever! I mean I liked it so much I played the stupid thing at 2 x speed. I just couldn't wait to hear what would happen next. So an 8 and half hour book became just over 4 hours long. That meant I was burning through my money faster than I was earning! Michael Fuchs and Glynn James can just continue to take my money because I still don't see an end in sight for this series.

I could sum this one up with 'stop it, I like it!'

I do not know how the authors of this series sleep at night with this knowledge regarding my hard earned cash. Oh I know on a mattress stuffed with money I bet!

If you are reading this review and you haven't listen to any in the series so far. Do yourself a favour and get into it. Just be prepared to buy all of them!

Not long enough ☹️

This series is great but I think the books should have been combined to make longer books. I hate spending my monthly credit on a book that I will listen to in less than a week.

Just Gets Better

This series is brutal...in a good way. It just keeps building on itself. And in the zombie apocalypse, that's a good thing. There are so many moving parts here. The teams are scattered all over the globe, and a vaccine is the goal. Will it ever happen? Meanwhile the deaths keep piling up. It's more intense than the Walking Dead because this is military, and a global disease. That is the best part. And the virus just spirals out of control, with no end in sight. So onto book 7 with gusto. RC Bray makes this series. He gives it that extra thrust, making it a truly great series. Bravo!!
