Roak: Galactic Bounty Hunter by Jake Bible
Narrated by Andrew B. Wehrlen
There are thousands of bounty hunters across the galaxy. Solid professionals that take jobs based on the credits the bounties afford. They follow the letter of the law so they can maximize those credits.
Licensed, bonded, legal.
Then there’s Roak.
Deadly, unstoppable, invisible.
No criminal or military records. No files or folders with his name on them. No cybernetic implants to track. No proof he even exists except for a reputation for getting the job done. Roak is the bounty hunter called when someone is looking for the opposite of licensed, bonded, legal.
Now someone has ignored his reputation and made a very big mistake.
Double-crossed and left to die, Roak survives and sets out to exact vengeance and get paid what he is owed.
But he’s not unreasonable.
While his fee may have just gone up, the bloody, brutal revenge is on the house.
Z-Burbia 7: Sisters of the Apocalypse by Jake Bible
Narrated by Angel Clark
The end of the world is close. The dead walk the Earth, feasting on the living. Rogue bands of crazies, gangs of cannibals, and evil organizations fight for what is left of civilization. Blood and violence are the laws of the land. Those that survive must do things that no sane person should be forced to do.
Good thing Elsbeth isn’t exactly sane.
The savior of, and saved by, the Stanford family, Elsbeth now fights for the Stronghold. She has friends and allies willing to fight right alongside her. Most of all, she has family.
She has sisters.
And it ain’t the sisters that need to watch out for the apocalypse. It’s the apocalypse that needs to watch out for the sisters!
The best-selling Z-Burbia series continues, but now it is Elsbeth’s turn to tell the story. Hang on for one crazy ride with a cannibal savant and her battle-hardened sisters as they tear through the wasteland and turn the zombie apocalypse on its undead head!
Tourists of the Apocalypse by C.F. Waller
Narrated by J. Scott Bennett
Award Winner in the 2016 Readers Favorite International Book Contest and the 2016 Shelf Media Best Indie Contest
Dylan Townsend stands on the beach watching commercial jets fall out of the sky like oak leaves twirling in the wind. A wing shears off the one closest to the shore just before it splashes down in the sea. Why was she telling him this outlandish story? What sort of tourist agency would offer people a front row seat to the end of the world? More importantly, why would anyone book such a vacation if there wasn’t any way home afterward?
“Why would anyone buy a ticket on the Titanic if they knew it was doomed?”
“Relax Dylan,” she assures him. “If you know it’s going to sink, you could bring a raft.”
As she paces in the sand watching the sky, he realizes that however wild her story may be, he loves her. Maybe Izzy is a time travel tour guide after all. In truth, he is more likely to be harmed by her boyfriend than the imminent apocalypse. What’s he going to do about that sticky situation?
“Come on,” she orders, pulling on his arm. “We need to see a man about a raft.”

Hell on Earth: Life of the Dead, Volume 1 by Tony Urban
Narrated by Eric Bryan Moore
When civilization ends – when hundreds of millions of the dead return to eat the living – how will the remaining humans survive?
One week ago, there were over 300 million people living in America. Today there are less than 5,000. After a man-made plague destroys the population, cities burn and the government crumbles when the dead come back to life as flesh-hungry zombies. Wim, a 30-year-old farmer, purposely kept himself cut off from other people, but when the undead arrive at his farm, intent on eating him, he’s forced to venture out into the land around him and fight to save a world on which he long ago turned his back. Survivors from all walks of life – criminals and fry cooks, teenagers and soldiers – battle to survive zombies and each other as mankind races toward extinction.
Book one in the epic Life of Dead zombie apocalypse saga.
Warpath: Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, Book 7 by Shawn Chesser
Narrated by Chris Patton
In the crucible that is the zombie apocalypse, Cade Grayson, father, husband, and former Delta Force operator has forged new friendships and tempered old ones. In those same metaphorical flames, he has seen blood spilled, loved ones perish, and dealt his own brand of justice.
Now, three weeks after a world-wide viral outbreak has left the United States in ruins and transformed most of her population into walking corpses hungering for the flesh of the living, he finds himself at an Army Forward Operating Base on the outskirts of Grand Junction, Colorado.
With only a set of GPS coordinates to go by, Cade must deliver his small family and a trio of young people from the distant outpost, across hundreds of miles of Utah’s sun-baked high desert, to the promise of safety.
Meanwhile, eagerly awaiting their arrival at the Eden compound, Duncan Winters goes about the grim task of burying the recently fallen. With each shovelful of dirt he deposits on the bodies of kin and friends, his insatiable desire to strike back at the people responsible tugs him ever closer to the edge of insanity.
With the dead hunting and moving in herds of ever-increasing size, will Cade and his group survive the running of the gauntlet?
