Publisher's Summary

As our survivors near the coast, the road takes its toll. Falling apart physically and emotionally, they are drawn to the siren call of the beach. Seaside awaits them, a town demolished by a tsunami and crawling with the reanimated. With infants in tow, the survivors must band together to fight for a new home. All that stands between them and the future is an army of the dead. Will they succeed, or will they find themselves Choking on the Ashes?

A exciting, exhausting and heartbreaking ride.

Thanks Jacy. Enjoyed thoroughly. T.L. Howell does a great job with narration. Would have been thrown off if a new narrator had come in to replace.

what a bittersweet ending.

I've really enjoyed following the characters over the years. While there were plenty of sad moments, there were also some happy moments along the way. You never really knew who would be the next to fall and you could certainly never guess how a character's journey would end. I've eagerly awaited the audio releases over the years and, that in part has to do with the stellar performance by T. L Howell. Hats off to Jacy Morris for sticking with him to the end. It's not often a series with this many books does this and for that, I'm grateful. This book is a great end, possibly the best end we could imagine for our loveable survivors. The quality of Jacy's writing never dips and for that, as well as everything else, I would give this book 5 stars. I'd also like to add that it isn't often, heck, it's quite rare a story will give me as much dread and anxiety as this series has. Whether that anxiety is for the characters I've grown to enjoy or the writing and situations being so..real..that I could see myself in the same situations. Just one more reason why this series is one of my all-time favorites. Thanks again Jacy for 1. teaching me that no one is safe in This rotten world 2. For ripping my heart out repeatedly until I learned this truth. I'll be sure to do my best to remember this truth but no promises, after all, your characters are just too darn enjoyable :)
So, if you're reading this review and haven't yet started the series, prepare yourself.. now what are you waiting for?? jump on this rollercoaster already!

This is...

...a really lovable series to listen to. The series is great and the narration is fantastic and works perfectly with the material... and speaking of, honestly, I can't understand how any publisher would turn this material down. What were they thinking??

This Rotten World gives you everything you want and need in a story spanning the breakdown of a society. It's entertaining, wittily told, gritty, gory, harrowing with endearing characters and palpable peril and triumphs. I'm actually sad it's over, but hoping Jacy will somehow spin more tales from this universe in the coming years.
