Brutal, agonizing convulsions simultaneously strike a quarter of the Earth’s population. There is no warning and no discernible pattern regarding race, age, gender, or region. The afflicted die within moments of one another. Seven minutes later they rise again and attack the living. The speed at which the disaster happens is too great for any organized response. Towns are overrun. The government and military find themselves unable to react. Civilization crumbles in a matter of hours.
By the end of the first day, the streets are filled with shambling corpses, mindless beings driven solely by the desire to feed. Jacob Thornton decides his only chance is to abandon his home. Fleeing the city, he travels north, encountering other survivors on the way.

Yet, the creatures never stop moving, and they have begun to leave the population centers, spreading across the land.

Love the book
I love the book and author however I do wish he would get one or two others to read it maybe a female to do the female voices . Other then that amazingness I listen to this while cleaning horse stalls !!
Yes, the reader is a bit nasally but the story is pretty good, characters are reasonable and most are likable. Does it continue?
Best podcast ever!
I literally miss this series every time I see the word “podcast” it was the best little surprise while I was waiting for my audible credit to come in...I wasn’t expecting much of it but I was so enthralled I listened to it all hours of the day!! Loved it so much, I might listen to it again!
