Summary

Apocalypse: Disorder and chaos ravage London when thousands are contaminated by the accidental discharge of an experimental bioweapon. The disease robs its hosts of rational thought, giving them a singular desire - find more living flesh to infect.

Aftermath: Peter, alone by choice and oddly thriving, finds himself suddenly responsible for the life of someone other than himself. Elsewhere, other survivors stake their own claims to land and resources, but the inexplicable swarms of undead threaten to gather and dissipate constantly.

Abandoned: The virus spreads to every corner of the country while the combined forces of the naval fleet set sail for deeper waters and leave the UK to its fate. The few groups that remain are separated after a fateful battle for England, left to their own devices.

Adversity: As if flesh-hungry zombies weren't enough, a harsh winter strikes.

Adaptation: The apocalypse continues in the penultimate chapter of the Toy Soldiers series. Will anybody make it out alive?

Annihilation: Fleeing the seemingly unstoppable enemy, the survivors pin their hopes on a final attempt for freedom, but that means they must turn their backs on their home forever.

Reads like an uninspired furniture catalogue

Just after finishing his other series: 'After it happened', I saw the publishers pack for this series, and loving the AiH books, I bought it. This series has no interesting characters, it is dull and reads like an ikea catalogue from the 80s. Where the AiH series shines with humor, lovable characters and interesting storytelling, these books bores you to the point where you wish the entire ensamble of characters are eaten by the infected (except Peter and Amber, the only characters in the book that had any potential of being remotely interesting, unfortunately even that is squandered). Actually at some point I wished for the limas to come and get me, so I wouldn't feel obligated to finish this series just because I payed for it. I believe the narrator does a somewhat ok job, looking at what he has to work with, but in the end, it is far from enough to elevate the experience to anything remotely enjoyable. Spend your money or credits on something else, that's my two cents, but your milage may vary.

Brilliant

An absolutely fabulous series. The story is not only about the zombies, but also the characters. These are extremely well written and you can really get behind them (whether they're good or bad ones!). Setting this story in the 80's also gives it a real twist, so rather than having an informed, connected world, the characters deal with older traditional media sources, lack of instant communication and so on. Love the series!

Probably the best zombie story I have listened to.

Good storyline with well realised characters and a believable scenario. I have listened to a lot of zombie books but would happily recommend this one to any one, especially if you haven’t got into ‘zombie land’ before.

Gripping stuff...loved it!

What a great story...believable and not holding back on the realities experience of modern life, the sometimes harrowing back stories of a few of the characters helped to drive the story as their lives and personalities evolved to cope with the trauma of living and surviving or otherwise through a world changed beyond anything they could've imagined. Changing locations and environments, realistic depictions of combat where failure results in a terrifying and known outcome for all who succumb. The narration was in the most part acceptable but of a stereotypical upper class depiction of some of my favourite characters jarred and I found myself really annoyed that the narrators interpretation of the officer ranks in the army was so bad. Having said that this series has claimed second spot in my top 5. Arisen, Tin Soldiers, The ExtinctionCycle, Aliens Vs Predator and Fear The Sky are all brilliant!

Great Multi Part series

I bought the whole series for a single credit and it was well worth every minute. I highly recommend the story and author.

Heart felt ride

It felt like the books were in three parts. The first building the setting, a little slow. The second full with suspence and the third a litte faltering. But it closed with a solid ending and left with the hope of more to come.
