Publisher's Summary

Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines.

When an airborne "zombie" plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia, and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

For it is up to the Smiths and a small band of Marines to somehow create the refuge that survivors seek in a world of darkness and terror. Now with every continent a holocaust and every ship an abattoir, life is lived under a graveyard sky.

A great new series by John Ringo

Any additional comments?

Fast paced action, some great laughs, very likeable characters, military details and some clever science.

Will definitely be enjoyed by anyone who liked the Paladin of Shadows, Troy Rising or Legacy of the Aldenata series.

Great Book :)

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the principle that other than the usual zombie killers the unusual can be a hero too.

Which character – as performed by Tristan Morris – was your favourite?

Faith

Any additional comments?

I read comments and other reviews and decided against getting the book but had a lull in other books so thought why not give it a go. I am glad i did as really enjoyed it. If we believe in zombies then why can't we believe a 13 year old can deal with them? I enjoyed the story and enjoyed the hero was a girl :) why not ..... 5 stars from me

A story to lift the soul

What made the experience of listening to Under a Graveyard Sky the most enjoyable?

again and again the characters and the way the story has been written and told.

What other book might you compare Under a Graveyard Sky to, and why?

If any one has yet read the work of Chris Fieldwater, Ann Rice, and some of Mary Stewart, plus clan of the cave bears, these writers are held in high regard in my eyes, and now so is John Ringo.

Have you listened to any of Tristan Morris’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I will have to reflect upon that answer.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

again I would simply answer, the life of the characters, and of how they overcame such terror.

Any additional comments?

A great read, please keep writing.

Terrible.

Awful book with a decidedly unrealistic portrayal of an apocalyptic event. The masses of dialogue is often seemingly meaningless and does little to either advance the story or develop the characters. I stopped listening when several of the main characters decided to go out for a meal and talk food whilst New York city was falling to pieces due to the outbteak. Terrible, terrible book.

Not for Aussies.

Good story, main character has worst attempt at Aussie accent ever. Probably bearable if you aren't Australian. Also dad being pronounced da is driving me nuts.
