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.
This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge via Audiobook Boom.

Not for me.
I've put off writing this review for a week or so because I didn't really know what to say because most of what I want to say will spoil it!! It started with, and this isn't a spoiler, nearly everyone dying of a virus within the first few passages. This in itself isn't anything new with this type of book, but we don't find out how the virus came to be at all!! Then we have multiple POVs, which again isn't anything new, but there wasn't any character development at all. I just didn't care about any of them at all!
Plot wise, it fell flat too. Apart from not knowing how the Pox came to be, it's quite slow going and had no development either. I mean, how could a prison function with only 2 men, plus why would they leave just 2 prisoners go?? It didn't make sense. I just didn't connect with anything in the book, and I really don't think I'll continue on with the series.
Kevin Pierce was just as good as he always is! He has a pleasant voice and always delivers a great performance, I do have to say though, that he needs to work a little on his Irish Accent, it was pretty bad!! But I'm Irish so I know a good one when I hear it. Other than that, I enjoyed his performance.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
