Publisher's Summary

Don't threaten the children when the wolves are near.

Isolated and left on their own at a wild animal safari park at the beginning of a zombie uprising, the boys and girls from the school field trip must learn how to survive on their own. They are safe behind the tall fences and strong walls, but what about all the wild animals inside the gates with them?

The animals aren't so wild after all. Bottle fed and cared for their entire lives, they are almost as helpless as the children. The bears like their tummies rubbed. The panther wants her ears scratched. The wolves have never had to hunt for their food.

Together, they learn to trust each other, to hunt, to survive, and to fight.

This epic tale of love, bonding, and violence tells the story of the children and their animals as they battle against the undead, the harsh northern winter, and a band of merciless killers who want them dead.

Join them in their journey to find a place of safety in this complete three book trilogy.

Repetitive but a good story

I really wanted to love the story. The idea of this tale is great. A bunch of kids thrown together with wild animals surviving the zombie apocalypse was just the fresh look at a zombie story I was looking for, and as a whole the story was a good one. However, the constant repetition of the kids’ feelings and characters thoughts (don’t get me started on Diablo! I swear they just copy and pasted what he was thinking every time they came to him. We get it! His all-factory senses are amazing) was driving me crazy. It’s like the writer was afraid we would forget what was going on so he has to spoon feed the storyline to the reader. Maybe this book was meant for a much younger audience?

The narrator, Eric Shelman, was terrible. He sounded like a movie announcer trying to read a story. His performance got better over time and he stopped putting periods where there were none by the third book, or maybe I just got used to it. All in all, I most definitely will not be revisiting this book but it was nice to get a fresh look at the zombie apocalypse that wasn’t about some hotshot military type or doomsday prepper.

Wonderful!

Wait , listen and you will thoroughly enjoy this amazing story. It’s not just about Zombies, it is a powerful telling of survival by mere children and young adults. Exquisitely compiled by adding zoo “wild “ animals that turn out to be the protectors of the “kids “ . Amazingly told narrated and written. Have Fun you will add this to your favorites.

one of the top three zombie books ever

I have listened to the entire zombie road series and loved every minute of it. when they ran into the feral children in zombie road I just knew there was more to be told there. so when I seen this book in audible I got excited it did not disappoint. this tale of heroism strength kindness and zombie survival is unforgettable. I am on my way to listen to the next book about the retrievers deadline after hearing the beginning at the end of feral children I just know it's going to be a masterpiece. I would love it if there was one more story for the children of them growing up in Texas on a zoo being stalked by lions and tigers. ending with new children as the feral children turn into Feral adults. this is a magnificent series of books if you haven't got it yet do it you will not regret it.

Absolutely awesome

This is the first review I have actually written. I was turned on to the genre by Mark Tufo’s Zombie Fallout which led me to read literally every single book he wrote. Then I was lost. Where to go after catching up to my favorite author. This series, the children bonding in very realistic ways with they animal counterparts, and not an overly huge amount of zombie fighting. Just enough to satisfy your zombie craving. But the characters are so well developed, their animals who don’t even speak have personality, I could go on and on. I very much recommend The Feral Children. As reviews go, I know this one wasn’t very good, but I’ve listened to hundreds of books, and this is the first time I’ve written something. It’s that good

Brilliant!

Wow, this trilogy of books has it all, and I know my words won’t be able to do it justice but I will certainly try! I’m a huge fan of zombie books, and if you love books from the likes of Jonathan Maberry’s “Rot and Ruin” to Keith Blackmore’s “Mountain Man”, then this will equally satisfy your lust for post apocalyptic thrills! I was subjected to genuine anxiety, heartache and relief throughout this performance and I loved every second of it.
An amazing story told by an amazing actor about amazing characters, I’m blown away!
I haven’t even experienced the Zombie Road original series but this has 100% made me want to, I just hope it’s as good as this, which I expect it will be!
