Publisher's Summary

This series is now complete! The riveting conclusion to the hard-hitting new series, Population Zero, is here! Early readers are now saying that Population Zero: Book 3 is “the best book in the trilogy so far!” and “one hell of a way to wrap a series”.

Population Zero: Books 1 and 2 introduced you to the worst cyber-attack in US history, but is there a way to rectify it? To undo the damage done? Who are the players, what are the stakes, and can this nightmarish situation be reversed, or will we all plunge headfirst into the apocalypse?

Find out these things and more in the third and final book!

The need to exact vengeance....

Two competing ideas for warfare....

One human nightmare who deserves a fitting end.

Can Johan Schwein be stopped, or is he about to usher in the end of civilization?

While Slater and the LA team head to the bug-out house in San Rafael, they do so knowing that the road ahead is fraught with peril. Population Zero has agreed to give them what they want, but only so she can make matters worse. In this promise, PZ does not disappoint, and all hell breaks loose as a result.

When Elijah splits from the team to take care of his mother, he unknowingly attracts the worst of all enemies: the one he doesn’t see, not until it’s too late. There will be consequences for Elijah’s missteps, and people will die. But who will survive and who will perish? In the end, wars are not without their casualties, and all battlefields bear remnants of death and the blood of the fallen… 

This will be no different.

Population Zero: Book 3 is a blistering ride through an all-too-familiar world on the brink of an apocalypse. PZ3 is a thriller told only the way Ryan Schow can tell it - with bone-crunching detail, a torrent of emotional highs and lows, some well-timed humor, a bit of absurdity, and...pickles. 

Yep, you read that right. 

Pickles.

If you think you have the story figured out, trust me, it will not go as you anticipate. Load up on caffeine and tissue, and get ready for the best ride Population Zero has to offer....

More Diversity


I really enjoyed your story however I just have two one complaints - First, No meaningful interaction with a person of color only the stereotypical Mexican thug; no positive side of a person of color. Let’s not ignore the statistics where a person of color is treated unfairly. I don’t condone the burning of buildings in the violence that sometimes the Black Lives Matter protest show but it’s started from Black people being killed I think if there was a person of color that could explain that meaning behind BLM and a few bad actors caused the violence. There you have both Sides of the story. Second - I like understanding the author’s point of view and I agree with most - but jus a little too preachy . How did in my two complaints I really love the story thank you

Violent as Hell

I enjoyed the storue but too much gratuitous violence or just used as story filler. More story, less heads exploding.

Pretty good

The only negative I would say is the short bit where he thinks he is dead and kind of goes into a purgatory bit. That was a bit strange in the series, but otherwise I loved it! The character development and storyline was great.

Ryan never disappoints

I’m sad this is the last book in the series but my gut tells me you left it open for a spin off series to possibly follow. Great book, kept me on my toes the entire time while laughing and almost in tears through out. Your books always leave me wondering and asking myself, what if, could I be a Gabriella or Tatiana if I had to? Your scenarios that play out in this genre have me going down rabbit holes to find out more.

Great book!

Geez Schow

Well Ryan……..I’ve read a lot of your books and loved every one of them. Let me tell you…… you blew me away on the PZ series. Loved every character but let me tell you……in 3 I had know idea Slater was having a drunken dream so I must admit I called you every name I could think of. That’s how involved you put me in the book!!! Awesome job my man. You rock!

Acceptional and a fun listen!

loved this trilogy! most of all the comic relief in the character known as Arole! Right away I loved this person brought to life with his strange ways and odd but captivating personality! I felt sorry for this character and annoyed all at the same time, all while absolutely hanging on for the next twist and turn!

this trilogy stands out from the rest because it brings a touch of humor to a terrifying situation!! it was not miss placed humor but relatable humor that you could see yourself using to deal with an approaching inevitable apocalypse!

highly recommend this book! and I can't wait to listen to the next up and coming book by this Author!

five stars all the way from this listener!

WOW! Don’t forget your pickles.

Absolutely incredible journey through world in turmoil! The characters and their interactions will leave you laughing, crying and quite possibly cursing. Highly recommend this series as well as all of Ryan’s books. Kevin Pierce does an outstanding job of narration, as usual.
Get this series soon.

Awesome plausible Story line and characters.

My wife and both really enjoyed the book series. She really loved the character Scout and I really enjoyed Air Hole. The way the story captures your attention and makes you believe that this is really possible during this time in our political and personal lives.
