Publisher's Summary

Z-Burbia

When the zombie apocalypse hits the quiet Asheville, NC, subdivision of Whispering Pines, the residents don't turn to the police or the military. Nope. They rely on their iron-fisted Home Owners Association! Which Jace Stanford and his family aren’t too keen on. Undead hordes are hard enough to deal with in a post-apocalyptic hellscape, who needs HOA fines too?

Filled with blood, gore, plenty of bad jokes, cannibals, dreaded HOA covenants, and a whole lot of snark, Z-Burbia is guaranteed to thrill and entertain!

Welcome to life in Z-Burbia!

Z-Burbia 2: Parkway to Hell

With Whispering Pines refusing to give up and die, Jace “Long Pork” Stanford has nothing better to do than find out who the heavily-armed newcomers in town are. Well, while he’s not busy dealing with the ever present Z hordes. Or running for his life from paramilitary mercenaries. Or possibly blowing up more of the zombie-infested city because he can’t help pressing buttons. Buttons are meant to be pressed, even in the apocalypse, right?

Z-Burbia 3: Estate of the Dead

Jace Stanford has lost family, friends, and his arm to the zombie apocalypse that hit his subdivision of Whispering Pines. But he’s also gained something he never in a million years would have thought would be a plus: the cannibal savant known as Elsbeth.

Now Jace needs Elsbeth’s help more than ever. But is she up to the task when her past is revealed?

A past that is possibly more shocking than the zombie apocalypse itself? Jace is gonna find out the hard way. 

And, as everyone knows, in Z-Burbia the hard way usually means a whole lot of people are going to die!

Z-Burbia 4: Cannibal Road

Forced out of Asheville, Jace Stanford’s family, along with a convoy of suburbanites, misfits, criminals, and soldiers, must battle their way through the I-40 corridor of Eastern Tennessee.
When they are separated from their friends and allies in Knoxville, the Stanfords have to rely on their skills as post-apocalyptic survivors to fight off the Zs, insane Vols fans, homicidal sorority girls, and the most deadly of the post-apocalyptic threats- cannibal gangs!

No longer are the Stanfords trying to survive day by day, but hour by hour and minute by minute, as they flee Z-Burbia and race through the hellscape of Cannibal Road!

Z-Burbia 5: The Bleeding Heartland

The American Midwest was a bucolic landscape that didn’t quite adjust to the zombie apocalypse. Instead of open arms and welcoming faces, there are now open mouths and ravenous Zs. The blue collar drive to work hard has become a red-mouthed hunger for flesh.

Jace Stanford, his family, and the rag tag bunch of Whispering Pines survivors, private military contractors, laborers, and former (hopefully?) cannibals now must face the vast, exposed space of America’s Heartland in order to get to a possible sanctuary in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Boulder, Colorado.

Just a simple convoy from point A to point B, right? Yeah, right. 

Z-Burbia 6: Rocky Mountain Die

With the plains to their backs, Jace Stanford and crew are just steps from their destination: the Stronghold of Boulder, CO.

The Worst! Not ONE original idea!

This entire book series is literally a rip off of multiple Zpoc authors ideas, concepts and even actual writing. Blatant theft.
Literally has stolen from Zombie Fallout, Adrian's Dead Diary, Undead World, Generation Z, Mountain Man.. and at least a half a dozen others. Your like wait.. this sounds familiar .. did I already hear this? Honestly the book just drones. When the author runs out of other writers works to steal ideas from he resorts to all the characters swearing every other word and the lower than low I crapped my pants. Oh dang I peed myself. Whoopise what that a shart? Yikes I did it again, pooped my pants! The best part is when he is harfing and the narrator actually makes harfing gagging noises! It's just so very bad.
We are not by any means Zpoc experts, BUT there is little on audible we have not listened to .. literally we have exceeded three thousand hours of zombie literature .. and this is in the top 5 of worst books ever.

An Ok post apocalypse book. Had some issues.

The main character was little more than a self absorbed, clueless teenager in an adult body. I have no problem with profanity as long as there is a point. There was a lot of pointless profanity like immature idiots will do with no point at all, other than just to hear themselves jabber. The book had some good points as a zombie book but was downplayed by the sheer stupidity of some of the character development. The narrator took away alot of fun that the book could have been. I guess it was worth listening just to kill time but just barely..........

Yawn Fest

The narrator was awful! He reads way to fast and is just God awful with use of different voices for different characters.
He does NOTHING for horror or zombie stories at all!!
Because of that fact I could NOT get into this series no matter how hard I tried or how many chapters I listened.
He absolutely ruined what could maybe have been a good storyline, series and characters.
Save the credit or money and find a better narrator and story.

What a comical yet sorrowful ride

At first I honestly didn’t think much of the story. But the more I listened I found myself invested. At times it felt like the story was missing a step or two but after a bit everything would come together. The ending was heartbreaking but only because after so many hours of active listening the characters become real as in most books. The story is good even if there are a lot of plot holes and loose ends that never get tied up. But I guess that is why they are called loose ends. It is your basic Z book with some comic relief and sprinkle of war, which is a recipe for a good listen. No, the zombie genre was not recreated in this story but it did add a nice spin to it. Hopefully there will be more stories from the Z-burbia universe I can hear.

What an interesting series

So yes the recording was a little bit rough and spoiler alert yes it just kind of ends but what a great story I look forward to listening to it again and again is the main character who is someone you love I would like to be friends with.. I recommend it as a book to read or listen to you just have to do it with an open mind and a joy for the flare’

Total garbage

Total garbage Written for Oprah soccer moms so they can pass it around at HOA meetings and say they have read an apocalyptic series.
I understand why it comes as a set. No one would purchase anything after book one otherwise.

Started my journey with this book with an element

Started my journey with this series of books with an element of doubt that soon evaporated as the story expands and unfolds and becomes a journey through the lives of many and the losses of friends as they navigate through the dangers of the walking dead and the half of humanity that losses its way in the face of the fall of our world as we know it, some may say they hate this 6 book series, but I grew to love this series of characters and horrors we as a species can do to each other we are all 3 days from the breakdown of all we know and have become increasingly interlinked with an event that will perhaps be the end of us

So good Bro!!!

I so enjoyed this series of books! I’ve read and listened to a lot of Zombie fiction and this will def be among my favs! The narrator is first class and there is bags of humour that bring laugh out loud breaks in the tension!!! Will be a repeat listen for me and 1 credit for 41 hrs of great characters and story was a bargain! If you like Zombie fiction with a healthy dose of laughter don’t hesitate get this audible series! AAA+

Great series

This is a great series of stories which focuses on life after the zombie apocalypse. It follows the life of the Stamford family and the people around them.

The tropes that are used are pretty standard but the stories around the tropes are well written. The thing that I like and what makes this series standard is the the protagonist, and first person voice of the story, is not you standard hero. In fact he’s physically quite weak compared to those around him. I won’t say any more in case it gets spoliery.

The super soldiers in the story make you have to suspend your disbelief, but this is the zombie apocalypse so for me it was already packed neatly away.

This is the first series I’ve read from this author but I will be looking to read more.

Narration is good with the actor providing a good range and voices. He does an especially good job with Long-pork.
