A Deluge of Action
I wonder if this series is now settling into a pattern; one medium action scene setter followed by an absolute fire cracker of a follow-up to deliver on the promises made. This one is most definitely of the fire cracker variety and the action is unrelenting delivering in the Arisen style that we’ve come to love. Hopeless situations rescued either by extreme badassery or incredible adventure – in fact I think it’s worth warning people that this one possibly pushes the envelope even further. Fair enough, if you want just gritty realism zombie books probably aren’t your thing, just be prepared to dial down your logic chips at times in this one.
The narration? It’s the grand master Bray on his home turf and he owns that turf. You know what you’re going to get from him, he delivers every time in this series and this is no exception. The story focuses on the action in the away teams primarily and doesn’t have the rather choppy feel of the previous book which seemed to be pulling a few too many strings together at once.
So, my love affair with rotting corpses and the heroes that are defending the last vestiges of humanity from them continues and I’ll wait impatiently for the next one. You feel the series probably has to end some time but while Fuchs can deliver such compelling action and a little humour here and there including aping Jurrasic Park slightly I have to say I’m in no hurry for it to finish.

Really distraught that the next book isn't out on audio yet!! Can't RC Bray record faster? 😉 Love this series and his narration!

An excellent continuation of a great series.
Where does The Flood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I've listened to a ton of audio books, but as far as the 12 Arisen books I've listened to so far, I'd rate this one in the top three (behind Exodus and Genesis). It's definitely one of the better books in the series.
What did you like best about this story?
This story has finally merged the Standalone arc with the main one. It's been a long time coming, and I'm excited to see where it goes from here.
Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This one ranks towards the top. Just when I thought I had become familiar with the range of characters he can portray, he goes and throws a couple new ones, complete with their own inflection and accents, into the mix. He's an excellent reader.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were a few giggles here and there, but nothing extreme.
Any additional comments?
This book is nearly end-to-end action, which is in no small part to the previous book being a bit on the stagnant side. What I mean by that was that it served as one giant setup to this one. I'm a huge fan of this series, but it really feels like many of these books can be paired directly to another and combined into one cohesive narrative. This aspect of the series has always felt like a money grab to me. With that aside, I still maintain this is an excellent series, and well worth the read/listen if you're looking for a decent Zombie Apocalypse story with a focus on action. This is seriously good stuff.
