When Tom, the son of a powerful senator, becomes stranded in the Plagued States while searching for his lost sister, his only hope of survival rests in the hands of a few grizzled veteran zombie hunters and a mysterious half-breed zombie woman he thinks may know where to find his sister....
In the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, the humans won by creating a moat surrounding the Plagued States of America. Now zombies roam freely, and only the most fearless of hunters venture in, but they don't hunt to kill. Zombie labor is too valuable a commodity. That's why Tom has come to one of only three sanctioned outposts along the Moaning Coast to check their sales records in the hopes of finding his lost sister. What he finds instead is a mysterious half-breed zombie woman who may know where she is. When the township is overrun by zombies, Tom, the half-breed, and a group of grizzled zombie hunters must fend for themselves in order to survive not only the zombie horde, but the military gunships trying to wipe out the infection.
This debut book by Better Hero Army stands to become the start of one of the best new zombie series with its action-packed story, great characters, and twists that keep you on your toes and breathless to the very end.

"Welcome to the Wild West, brother."
Plagued, brings an horrifying new aspect to the zombie genre: the trading and use of them as slaves . The Synopsis given is full so I do not want to further rehearse the story which was exciting and action packed, though fairly short in length. As always, the narration by Mr.Wehrein was impeccable, clear, well paced with just the right dramatic emphasis and clear voicings for the individual characters. His reading most definitely enhances the experience.
I have not previously heard of the author, Better Hero Army, and I have the rights holder of Plagued to thank for introducing his work to me with this book, gifted to me via Audiobook Boom. I will certainly be watching out for more in this new zombie series by him as he has already inserted some intriguing ideas which need to be followed up in future stories: what happened in the original outbreak? How did the whole trader enterprise come about? The real story behind the half breeds? The zombie children, what more of them? The medical programme, what exactly does it do and how was it developed? All these, and more, have really piqued my interest as well as, of course, what happens next with Tom.
I hope to find out more in future books.
