fantastic final book for no.1 zombie apocalypse

This was a brilliant end to and amazing zombie apocalypse. Deep characters and strong relationships tested in an end of the world saga that lasted 14 books but I wish carried on. Dr Park for president of the new world order! I think the team need a new adventure, they took on the dead now what's left? Aliens? come on we need a reunion of Fic, Predict, juice, noise, handon and Dr Park to save the world again!! more please!

For the video game role playing geek in you

This book is really one for role playing/MMO aficionados. it took me a while to get into this book only to be attracted by the fact that it's being made into a movie and that Wesley crusher would be narrating it. both the former and latter got tired fast but I decided to stay with it and the story grew on me. At first a little thing like that fact that the VR world was meant to be so real that people had lives in it but most users walked in it by pointing, not walking or bring plugged in via the brain or something (hence why they felt like they were really in it) didn't quite add up - doesn't sound super immersive for you to think that world is as real as the real one - and for some reason a trivial thing like that bugged me. The geek talk in the narrative was quite high level and if you aren't into 80's role playing games like dungeons and dragons or the more recent online MMOs then you might get fed of some of the terminology used and the level of detail.
however if you can get past all this then the concept is interesting.
overall not a bad book to listen to but you need to persevere. I never really think a movie is as good as the book but I suspect with this one the movie will be good with the book being a little disappointing - if Spielberg can Jazz up the action and tone down the geekiness then he'll have a winner.

full of twists and turns

if you have read the other books in the series this is a must read. in fact even if you have not this book also reads well as a standalone but you'll have a better context going in book order. RC Bray is brilliant as usual making the characters and the story come alive.
looking forward to the next installment!

brilliant Sci-Fi

At first after reading one of the other reviews of this book I was agreeing with the reader, but as you go through the book and embrace the "unbelievable"elements this turns into a multi layered science fiction with twists and turns until the very last word. The book as usual is the 5 star rating thanks to RC Bray's brilliant narration.
I would highly recommend this book.

An evil vision of revenge in 19th century New York

This was a truly dark story about revenge in 19th century New York. A harrowing tail of how things were in those times where everything was based on power, class, money, greed and violence. This story transports you to a time you would not want to have lived in regardless of class, rich or poor - in America both were pure elements of evil it seems according to the author. This is an amazing story and the deceptive nature transports you to this time, but be warned if you have a strong imagination you'll get a little depressed with the scene, story and dialogue the author conveys - but of course only RC Bray can bring it all to life.

I thought half way through that I really am grateful not to have been born in a place like that full of selfish violent people but I suspect England at the time was like that but more so America due to the immense wealth on offer and it's free market economy...

A must read for anyone interested in dark stories of revenge especially in 19th century with an author that has the ability to transport you there.

Another great Zombie apocalypse book

I've read a few Zombie apocalypse books now and this one ranks amongst the best one out there, namely the Arisen series. I can see a good series starting and look forward to the next installation. RC bray, as usual (and I'm always repeating this) was amazing and made the book come alive.
To the authors, lay off Stilly!! The guy really gets his fair share of stick! :)
I'm looking forward to the next book, make sure you stick with RC bray reading it!

brilliant end of the world saga in the making

I've read two "end of the world" books and this one was brilliant. I won't name the other one as I got bored half way and returned it although that book seems to have high ratingsb for some reason. With regards to this book in question I found the characters brilliant and RC Bray bought them to life with his narration.
it's scary to think that if the world ended it would probably descend into a chaos like that described in the book - everyone for themselves splitting into good and evil. However you would hope that, like the book, a number of good people existed. This books drops you into such situations and describes the inner demons everyone faces while trying to survive having to do things they would never have done in normal circumstances.
I'm looking forward to the next book, its a shame that my favourite character in the book won't be in it!

Excellent dark thriller

Another brilliant book in the series with Max Rupert showing his dark side. A very well written book that proves why revenge is a dish best served cold (pun intended and you'll understand why after you've listened to the book!)
R C Bray is brilliant as usual and makes the story come alive.
A must listen, especially if you've listened to the other books in the series.

Another brilliant book - a must listen

I think the moonlight series is brilliant and the story is brought to life by Mr RC Bray and his excellent narration. Moonlights' sarcastic personality and hence dialogue is perfect, setting the tone for another rollercoaster thriller. The story has numerous twists and turns and it kept me coming back for more. The dialogue and RC Brays voices for those pesky Russians is hilarious along with the voice he puts on for Zumbo - adding further humour to this great thriller. A must listen!!

Another brilliant book from Mr Zandri and RC Bray

I generally only listen to RC Bray books as I think he's the next narrator on Audible, hence I read this and the other moonlight book he read.
I like the sarcastic persona of moonlight and his side kick in this story. The story has twists and the dialogue helps form a direction that anyone who likes thrillers will like. I also like the dialogue between the "dumb" Russian gangsters. Brilliant. Mr Zandri user RC Bray for the next books in the series.
