Publisher's Summary

An unstoppable curse. A dead man displaced from his time. How do you survive the zombie apocalypse when you started it?

Digby Graves, a deceased medieval peasant with delusions of grandeur, is trying to figure out how the hell he ended up in Seattle 800 years after his death. Also, why does he have necrotic magic coursing through his zombified body? Added to that is the fact that he made a terrible first impression the moment he woke up by lunging at the first person that came into biting range. 

Now, the curse he's unleashed is loose in the world. Digby has a target on his back and only fragmented memories of his death. He needs to survive long enough to put the pieces back together, learn what it means to lead the horde, and master his power over the dead. Digby might even find a few accomplices along the way, if he can hold off on eating them.

The end of the world is gonna get weird.

Finally, a Zombie Apocalypse written by an Author who graduated high school.

Granted this is as much GameLit as it is a Zombie book. However, in spite of having tried to listen to many of the Zombie books on Audible, only a handful could be said to be written by actual authors.

99% of what’s available on Audible in this genre is unedited, abysmally conceived, and poorly executed garbage, with plots so thin you could use them to jimmy a door lock.

So what a surprise it was when I found this book to be engaging, well written, and funny. Whether you’re a GameLit fan, or an apocalypse junky, or just a sci-if/fantasy enthusiast you won’t be disappointed.

Resident Evil, Zombies, LITRPG all into one glorious package

First off let’s start with how this book literally kept me to the point were I refused to stop listening to it.

Our MC storms a castle, becomes a Mage, dies, becomes living dead, is woken by some scientists 800 years later, accidentally starts a zombie apocalypse, and now has to run by some zealots who want a new world order. Like can a guy catch a break. Their are twists and turns and a snarky system giving him updates.

Excellent flow to the book and character development. The flashbacks are nice to fill in the backstory and flush out the characters. As usual Travis did an amazing job with Narration. Definitely worth the credit and can’t wait for the next book in the series.

An Apocalypse to Die For

Laugh out loud fun, intense action, genuine scares - this end of the world has it all. Bring your darker sense of humor.
I'd love to see someone animate the scene from chapter 39, music included!!

A really enjoyable zombie apocalypse LITRPG

I have only seen a few authors attempt a zombie apocalypse LITRPG story and of those all but the rare few involve a human gamer against zombies.

Most that try the zombie gamer route end up writing themselves in a corner since even a semi intelligent zombie could easily overwhelm a settlement. By gathering guns and explosives from overrun army bases and armored vehicles. So the issue is how does your gamer zombie not wipe put his enamies without making them constantly make bad decisions?

Well this author decided not to worry about that. They decided that the humans are not the enemy of the gamer zombie. In fact he has a soft spot for those he considers innocent of those that had been beat down by society. His enemy is a group with similar advantages that he has but with a much stronger military might that he has to constantly fly work to try and overwhelm.

That said his goal so far isn’t to overwhelm anyone. He wants to find a way to escape his pursuers and maybe become human again. All he wants is a bit of normalcy in his life, or should I say Unlife? That said what’s normal even mean for an 800 year old former peasant zombie Mage who spent 8 centuries in ice in the middle of a bustling city?

Yes just Yes!

This is everything you love in a LitRPG without any of the whiny annoying MC, or Gary sue, or harem crap that you never want but seems to be in 3/4th of all the books in this Genre. This is straight up a good book that you can read and enjoy no matter if you like the genre or not, but if you like the genre then this is the next best series you are going to read and you will pre-order the next book.

A terrific book for the spooky minded

Ravenous caught my eye while looking at books. having an extra credit I decided to try. within the first few minutes I was heavily invested in this story and the characters in it. Digby Graves (haha) is a well fleshed out (sorry) character finding himself in a world that has moved on without him. I grew into if not liking or sympathizing then respecting his morals and how he takes everything from betrayal, power, and other things that happen to him.

The narrator is incredible

This story has an incredible cast of characters. Digby and Rebecca play off each other hilariously. It’s amazing how Travis Baldree was able to bring every character to life and make them feel unique. This is my new favorite LitRPG.

A fun adventure in a genre blending series that I'm stoked to continue
Travis Baldree delivers another amazing performance. And Mountaindale Press adds another amazing LitRPG to their catalogue.

Brilliant - Very different from what I was expecting

A really nice and interesting take on a zombie LitRPG - the story is interesting, very different from what you expect and it flows nicely. I love the main character, which with his unique background adds substantially to this books depth, well worth a listen.

suprisingly good

I actually enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. I wasn't to sure it would be my kind of book going through the first chapters but along the way it really drew me in. Both the writing and the narration are in point, well done!

Creative premise, good writing and solid story

I have little to mope about in regards to this book!

Solid on writing, story, characters, no tropes or uber-power fantasy.

The main character is bit of a 'puckish rogue' anti-hero, maybe a little bit arrogant, but always in a fun way, never annoying.

Its not the next Asimov or anything, but damned if its not a solid entertaining story.

Fun Zombie Romp

This book is exactly like the cover suggests it's going to be - it's a fun zombie romp, leaning more into adventure than horror.

Basic summary: a dude from the middle ages gets turned into a zombie and wakes up in slightly-future America (tech is a bit more advanced, but only by maybe 30 years or so). He unintentionally starts a zombie outbreak when he bites someone, and then story goes on from there. There are lots of powers, not too many stat pages (good for audio) and some really creative uses to the abilities that the MC is given.

There were some issues with the book, to be sure (the MC is a jerk for most of the book, and not in a good way, and the flashbacks are annoying), but the story was just so much fun that these were easy to ignore. I found myself wanting to listen to this story at every opportunity I could, even if I could only put in my headphones for a couple of minutes. This adventure reeled me in... I just wanted more, more more. If you like fun, light-hearted romps with a dash of zombie, this one is for you.

Great series

If you are looking for a book that is a little darker look no farther. David Petrie does a great job bring to unlife Digby Graves. He is a zombie necromancer from the 1200s that is frozen in ice and thawed out in current day Seattle. David does a great job character building setting up a great plot line.

Refreshing new entry into the Genre

Was pleasantly surprised by this book. Not a daring new take on LITRPG just a good solid entry to what I hope is a long running series, where I hope Baldree becomes emboldened to flex his artistic licence. BRAVO I eagerly begin book 2 !

Great book

This is a great book with a bit of a resident evil vibe. It’s got great humour and good characters if you’re looking for a good book give this a try. As always the almighty Travis Baldree does a great job overall 15/15

Better than I expected

When I first read the blurb I passed this book by finding it to ridiculous, however I can certainly say that this was a surprising good read to the point that I couldn’t stop till I finished, now I find myself eagerly awaiting the next book.
