Publisher's Summary

The Kennedy stares into the abyss
The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her thinned, exhausted, and beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded. Soon, the ship's five-acre flight deck will become the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle - like no combat any modern army has seen since Stalingrad. The ranks of the dead are infinite, and those of the living are tiny, depleted, and running out of time... and of hope.
The abandoned run ahead of the storm
Surrounded, cut off, and left for dead, Wesley's band of sailors and survivors race ahead of the city-devouring swarm, desperate for a way off the land. Air strikes and shore bombardment threaten to vaporize them at any instant. The inlet onto which they flee is surrounded on all sides and filling up fast, and the least hesitation will get them all killed, infected, devoured - or all three at once.
The operators jump into mouth of hell
Having already dodged a hundred deaths by inches, the operators of Alpha team and MARSOC now fly into two converging storms of unspeakable violence and must parachute in and reinforce the Alamo - the hopeless and doomed defense of the carrier. A thousand things must go right for them to have a prayer of survival. But it's the job of the operators to succeed even when a million things go wrong...
Ride the human spirit to its utmost limit in the most terrifying and thrilling Arisen book yet: Arisen, Book Five - Exodus.

A Genuine High Quality Series

This series just keeps on giving, it's consistently of high quality and the easy summary is that if you liked the previous books, you will like this one too. The zombies keep developing in terms of how they stalk our human heroes and at times the flight for the flight deck was reminiscent of World War Z.

It's gripping stuff. There were one or two strange moves by the characters that were hard to explain for such high level professionals but war is often as much about stupidity under pressure losing the day as it is about brilliant tactics bringing victory so I think the authors can be allowed this.

Narration remains very good. Only complaint I can have about this series is that I want MORE than is currently available!

Heading in a great direction....

If you could sum up Exodus in three words, what would they be?

Fast, exciting, tiring...


What was one of the most memorable moments of Exodus?

There were too many parts to list, but I can’t help but think that the authors may have paid some homage to ‘The war of the Worlds’ (book version) perhaps with the callsign of the fighter plane that saves the tiny yacht when it is trying to make its way out to open water…… There were others, but that one stuck….


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The battle on the flight deck was very gripping with some fast passed action. The description of the multitude of dead trying to overrun the deck was reminiscent of the scenes in World War Z (film version) where the dead overran the walls around Israel. There were a few things that they (the character’s) seemed very slow in putting into action or even thinking about that seemed quite obvious to me, but I shan’t say what they were, you will have to listen to it yourselves without me picking at it! The Arisen series are one of my most favourite zombie stories ever, and I’m keen to see how things pan out in the next book and anticipate running into Zak from Genesis. Excellent.


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

Finding and saving the dam dog.


Any additional comments?

All in all I am very pleased with the entire series. Yes there are some parts that make you question the occasional stupidity of the Operators when seemingly obvious mistakes and errors are made, but it is a story. It is designed to drag you in and occasionally curse and shout "You idiots!", but that is what a good story is supposed to do. If you haven't tried any others, then "The Remaining" by D.J. Molles is also panning out very well. Also "Plague of the Dead" by Z.A.Recht was very enjoyable and only overshadowed by the authors sad and untimely death before he could finish anymore. RIP Mr.Recht. Then there is “We’re Alive” and of course “The Walking Dead”. Listen to them all…..
