to spin the topic into some other good Apocalyptic Authors here is a couple of my favorites.
Z A Recht. Sadly he passed away after only writing two books Plague of the Dead, and Thunder and Ashes. But amongst all the apocalyptic series that I have read/listened too, this one was my very favorite. After Z A Recht had passed, another author picked up and tried to continue the series, but that certainly didn’t work for me.
Sarah Lyons Flemming has a few Zombie series that were well written and had very solid narrators for the audiobooks.
