A college student in Knoxville. An Irish couple on their dream vacation in Orlando. A bank robber in an Atlanta prison...what do they all have in common? They are survivors of vPx073, the most deadly virus ever to be unleashed on the planet. One that has brought civilization to a standstill.
Haunted by the tragic death of his Gulf War veteran father, Cody Parsons is a struggling student at UTK when the pandemic hits Knoxville. Soon the sharpshooting skills his father taught him as a 14-year-old are put to good use - especially when an ex-US army combat engineer takes him under his wing. As food and water runs out, and roving gangs take over the cities, the paths of some very determined survivors are destined to meet...with surprising consequences.
With strong, original characters, this is a fast-paced story that fans of post-apocalyptic survival fiction will appreciate.

No Direction Home Excellent Plague Survival Series
This is an excellent new series from Mike Sheridan. vPvo73 gets out of a Lab and wipes out everyone expects that small part of any population with natural immunity. There are three settings to start with. Knoxville, A prison in Georgia, and Orlando Florida. I don't want to go into too much detail this is a short book but it is well written with great characters and plenty of action. It is set up to be part of a series. I really enjoyed the book. Mr. Sheridan has a winner on his hands. I much prefer his post apocalyptic plague series over Bobby Akarts plague series.
The narration was provided by Kevin Pierce. Mr. Piece once again delivers another high-quality performance. I truly enjoy his work. I know that I will always get a great story and his delivery is always masterful.

Solid start to a new survival series.
I'm a huge fan of survival stories, whether they deal with the aftermath of an EMP, zombie outbreak, nuclear war, or in the case of No Direction Home a viral outbreak. There is just something gripping about the stories of people struggling to survive as all around them society breaks down.
I really enjoyed this first book in the No Direction Home series and was disappointed when it came to an end. NDH Book 1 tells multiple stories of small groups struggling to figure out how to survive in a world where the population has been devastated by a viral outbreak that kills like 98% of the population. Each group has a gripping story and I really like how many of the stories come together in this book, and also the promise that more of them with come together in future volumes. I think this is the first by Mike Sheridan that I've experienced but I can guarantee you it would be the last.
What can I say about Kevin Pierce's narration? He's quickly become of my favorite narrators. In fact I feel pretty confident in saying he's in my top 3 narrators. And when I think of survival books I think of Kevin Pierce. Heck even when I'm reading a survival story, it's Kevin's voice I tend to hear in my head. Not sure I can give him a better compliment than that.
I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
