Summary

Dave finds an unconscious Howie and carries him into the residential streets for safety. The others have been separated and are searching for each other. Nick falls asleep and misses the pick up.

We meet Lilly and Billy, a brother and sister who are led by their ineffectual father into a series of devastating situations which results in Billy being taken by two men and Lilly witnessing the murder of her father. Lilly tracks her brother and meets up with Nick who, not being able to find his group, agrees to help her.

Nick finds Billy has been taken to a stately home taken over by a doctor who claims to be working on a cure. Meanwhile, Howie, who has learned he is immune, and his group are heading back to the fort when they become trapped in a safari park.

Keep em coming, ill keep on buying

What did you like most about The Undead?

That even though hes writing about an apocalyptic world, its not bleak, even if some scenes are.

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

Nick comes into this own in this one, we get to explore more what makes him tick.

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

Yeah the moment where Nick makes up his mind whos lying based on his training from Dave, i could listen to that section over and over.

Any additional comments?

Please keep em coming Mr Haywood.

Another goodie...

I think I'm secretly in love with Nick!
Awwww bless!
Another great episode, new characters but kept a high pace throughout! Some more laugh out loud conversations, and some parts that make you think!
Look forward to the next....

Best of the series so far

I've loved all of the Undead books, but for me this is by far the best. I love that the whole group are separated, it leads to some fantastic scenes with Dave at his best - with Howie. The entire Fruit Pastille conversation, and the ferret conversation absolutely killed me! Their dynamic is the best thing about this series, and them being alone together means they're at their best.

Dan Morgan once again does a brilliant job narrating the characters, I'm going to miss him in a couple of books time, but understand why he left and am intrigued to see what Joe Jameson will bring. For now though, he's still absolutely killing it, as is (as usual) R.R. Haywood! Can't wait for the next installment!

TRIGGER WARNING - sexual assault

I am aware I am near the end of the line for this narrator, he has done a great job from books 1-10 (I think that’s his last)
Completely understandable why he was no longer comfortable with narrating this series as it does take a darker turn in part 9.

Please do not listen to this if you are triggered by things relating to sexual assault. Was a hard listen but I also understand the authors point of view of showing the breakdown of society and reality of the ugliness of human behaviour.

That aside - The ending of this book instantly made me purchase a new credit to continue with book 10. So so good!

I just love these books

Well what can I say, I am hooked! I have listened to all 20+ books and am on my second time round now. The narrator is fantastic I love the way you portray all the characters especially the relationship between Dave and Howie.
These books are so well written with a genius mix of comedy, horror, gore, violence, inclusion, diversity and relationships in a post apocalyptic world. I won’t give away too much storyline but if you enjoy a graphic zombie book, have a somewhat warped sense of humour and don’t mind a bit, well quite a lot of swearing then this series of books is an absolute must.
Thank you so much R R Haywood for your disturbing mind and for hundreds of hours of unadulterated zombie carnage wrapped up in a pretty little comic bow.

Taken a dark turn (not in the way expected)

All the normal Blood, gore and folles Howie etc as usual which is great, but there seems to be some sick fascination with sexual assault creeping into these books now! Next book starts the same.
Unnecessary and takes a lot away from the books.
Puts you off reading more!

running out of ideas

I'm totally hooked on this series and I really like it, but book 9 was lacking. half the book was spent chasing a little girl and when they finally caught her it was just a hyper kid that talked a lot and nothing happened then the book ended. not really looking forward to them being chased by lions(that's where they left off ). seems a bit ridiculous and the author is just looking for weird ideas. I sure hope he gets back on track and keeps the series moving because if I have to keep paying for this type of goofy stuff I'll stop buying.

only one that's lulled so far

if you can suffer through the first few chapters then this book, like most of the other undead books, turns out fairly well

Please don't take too long to make part X available. Graphic in places. Lots of stories going on. I think I'm addicted to the narrator.

great series but this book is my least favorite

nothing really happens in this book. a few of the other groups just seem to plod on for far too long before anything happens. hopefully the next book is better
