Publisher's Summary

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others. Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions must overcome their differences and recover from their own scars to protect the thousands of survivors sheltered in their film studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. The heroes lead teams out to scavenge supplies, keep the peace within the walls of their home, and try to be the symbols the survivors so desperately need. For while the ex-humans walk the streets night and day, they are not the only threat left in the world, and the people of the Mount are not the only survivors left in Los Angeles. Across the city, another group has grown and gained power. And they are not heroes.

Ex-citing, Ex-traordinary, Ex-tremely entertaining

If you like the Zombie genre, are open to super heroes and alternative universes this is the book for you.
I loved it, the Super heroes are well thought out and have all the classic powers, and a few that are rather different. The zombie issue has more imagination than most zombie novels making it more realistic and has a great final origin twist.
Ex-Heroes is well paced and full of action with just the right amount of humor. Mr Clines has written a well thought out, entertaining tale, combining two great genres of modern day writing.
Then getting Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam, to take you to Clines besieged Hollywood Lot and infected LA with their remarkable acting and story telling techniques is a stroke of genius. All of Clines exciting characters spring to life from the speaker. St George (Brilliant idea,) is voiced so you know he's a cool hero and a nice guy. With Stealth a sexy mysterious genius leader and Lady Bee leaving a mans blood pressure up. The whole narration of this brilliant novel leaves you with a desire to hear more, more, more.

Really Enjoyable

I am a big fan of the Walking Dead and Science Fiction in general, this is why I was attracted originally. The story is set in L.A the not so distant future, millions are infected by a virus that has turned them into flesh eating Zombies. The heroes battle daily along side the non infected for survival and there are some great heroes in this tale. A gripping story line well narrated with great characters.They could turn this into movie and I would really like a sequel.
