Freeman is a genius with an uncommon mixture of memory, intelligence, and creativity. He lives in a worldwide utopia, but it was not always so. There was a time known as the Grind - when Freeman's people lived as slaves to another race referred to simply as "Master". They were property. But a civil rights movement emerged. Change seemed near, but the Masters refused to bend. Instead, they declared war.
Now, the freed world is threatened by a virus, spread through bites, sweeping through the population. Those infected change - they are propelled to violence, driven to disperse the virus. Uniquely suited to respond to this new threat, Freeman searches for a cure, but instead finds the source - the Masters, intent on reclaiming the world. Freeman must fight for his life, for his friends and for the truth, which is far more complex and dangerous than he ever imagined.

This is the first book that I have listened to twice in the same week. I have listened to books multiple times before but not right after finishing it. I love this book, It's not just a 'zombie' story it's more, and the twists are just in the right places. I have enjoyed all of Jeremy Robison's books they are always amazing. This one goes above and beyond. I can't decide who is my favourite, luscious or freeman. I do love the conversation between them. The voice actor is spot on with everyone's voices. Highly Recommend

MUCH better than expected!
What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?
i have listened to r.c. bray a few times now, and he is becoming one of my favorite narrators. he gives each character their own unique voice. he is easy to listen to, and his narration draws you into the story.
Any additional comments?
robots and zombies!?! WTF...i thought! it's not normally a combination i'd consider even though i like them individually. BUT before you make a funny face and utter a derogatory remark, let me stop you there. this is a good zombie story, AND it is a great robot story.
great blend of characters. i found all of the characters interesting, unique, well drawn out, and needed. each character is an important building block of the world the author creates.
xom-b has all of the hallmarks of a good story, but i can't say too much b/c i don't want too spoil your listening experience.
i can usually predict how a story will unfold so i get excited when i'm surprised by a really good twist. there are breadcrumbs interspersed throughout the story, and what they finally lead to, i can honestly say i didn't see it coming.
overall, a good addition to your zombie library. if you're a fan of the zombie genre, this is a no-brainer- get it! but if you're not really into zombies, but you are into sci-fi, definitely give it a try b/c it's a good sci-fi book with a unique twist, and that twist be zombies! it's more AND better than you think!
NOTE: the story is a little slow in the beginning, but please give it a chance. it is well worth it!
NOTE 2: please nobody give away the twist of the story. you'll definitely earn my ire! thanks in advance!
