Summary

When Roman legions march over the borders of the Empire they meet an enemy greater than any they have ever faced. Emperor Vespasian has ordered a push further into Germania than the legions have ever been, and an enemy army is gathering to meet them. What neither side is prepared for is the darker force that they will both face. Indiscriminate and incapable of mercy, the new enemy will drive the Romans to the very brink of destruction. The Gates of Hades have opened and the Roman Legions must face what has escaped.

Brilliantly original story

A fantastic idea for the genre. Excellent writing makes this story flow very well and the pacing of the narrative is well done.

Historical zombie fiction.


Great characters and storyline. Natrator did a great job at doing different character voices. Lots of zombie action. Legionaries are cool; if Vitas dies I’ll be devastated. Will be diving into book 2 straight away.

Not what it seems.

While I live the premise, old Rome and zombies and was excited for what I was sure was going to be a new and refreshing twist on the Zombie genre, I was severely disappointed after the first 20 minutes. The narration and dialect is absolutely horrible. By horrible I don't mean that the narrater is hard to listen to, but that the book is written in a very Proper new world English accent, even with words that you would hear today. for instance a Roman commander tells a subordinate to "get cracking" like out of the Sherlock Holmes movies. There is no realistic Old Roman sound or vernacular like from the tv show Rome or the tv show Sspartacus. It's very disconcerting to try and imagine yourself during the Roman times when it sounds as if you are in downtown London. I would really like my credit back as cannot continue tonlistwn to this book butcher what should be one of the more romantic languages of their time. also there is very little mention so far of any of the old Roman God's which during this age they certainly would have associated a plague of this sort to the anger of the gods.
Anyway one persons review hope it helps others.

A great twist to the Zompoc theme.

I loved how Michael Whitehead set a zombie apocalypse amongst the political intrigue of the once mighty Roman Empire. A great read!
