It was a flu season like no other. With the H1N1 virus running rampant throughout the country, people lined up in droves to try and attain one of the coveted vaccines. What was not known was the effect this largely untested, rushed to market, inoculation was to have on the unsuspecting throngs. Within days, feverish folk throughout the country convulsed, collapsed and died, only to be reborn. With a taste for brains, blood and bodies, these modern day zombies scoured the lands for their next meal. Overnight the country became a killing ground for the hordes of zombies that ravaged the land. This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends. This is their story: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character in his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting on the edge of insanity. Can he keep his family safe? Can he discover the secret behind Tommy's powers? Can he save anyone from the zombie queen? Encircled in a seemingly safe haven called Little Turtle, Mike and his family, together with the remnants of a tattered community, must fight against a relentless, ruthless, unstoppable force. This last bastion of civilization has made its final stand. God help them all. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Once you read the first few pages of Zombie Fallout, you’re in for the series.”

    John Ramsey Miller, author of The Last Family

  • “Sean Runnette does a skillful job balancing humor with horror in this audio edition, which makes for an entertaining stroll with the walking dead…Runnette wrings plenty of chuckles from the material. Still, the narrator doesn’t forget that this is an apocalyptic horror story, making sure there are plenty of chills and thrills along the way.”

    " This book had potential but I just couldn't stand the writing style. "

    " Well what more can I say,it's brill like the rest of Marks books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Wands | 2/8/2014

    " I just finished reading this last night and really enjoyed it. I think it has a lot of flaws but I love zombie books so I probably am being a little lenient with 4 stars. One of the strengths of this book is the humor and family dynamics that Tufo really seems to understand. There's a lot going on and it ends somewhat openly, which is fine being that there is 5(?) other books in the series. I'm looking forward to the next book and the series in general. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 1/30/2014

    " I loved this book and upon finishing it I am starting on the second one as soon as I hit save on this review! I really like Mark Tufo's writing style. There haven't been that many books that had me out and out laughing and smiling while also being horrified. I like how he went from 1st person to 3rd person and back again. The characters are great and I am dieing to find out more about Tommy and the zombie girlfriend. Mike Talbot cracks me up. Maybe it's the Army vet in me (even though he is a Marine) but I could swear I know this character. Great read and I recommend it to anyone looking for a entertaining book that will be hard to put down. "

    " this book was pretty good,got a little boring by chapter 2,but not for too long. it had humor,it's creepy,gross and action packed. you can't help but fall in love with the main character and his family and Tommy. I am ready to start part 2, as soon as I finish this review. bravo to the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 1/1/2014

    " Unremarkable. Average story, mildly humorous. World War Z is a far superior zombie novel in all respects. Actually World War Z is very good book, regardless of it's genre. "

    " If u want a new author to follow Mark is the guy. His characters really come to life and u get addicted. Mark also really respects his fans. I even have my name in the "thanks" section of Zombie Fallout 5! "

    " Wow! Absolutely hands down the best Zombie book I have ever read. Hell maybe even just one of the best books I have ever read. Liked so much I went and got the series. You Rock Mr. Tufo! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 11/15/2013

    " Got half way through and got bored. Perhaps I'll come back to it eventually, but with only limited time for audiobooks (as I walk to and from work), I feel that my time would be better spent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/11/2013

    " Great zombie book, very suspenseful. Not sure where the author is going with introducing the higher power of good vs. evil playing into the mix but looking forward to see where the series goes. "

    " I'd give it 3.5 stars really. kept me interested, but i thought the end was a little lacking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 5/30/2013

    " I loved this book. Totally made me think of how my husband would act during a zombie apocolypse. The main character is a hoot and I love his sense of humor and the way that his story is told through a journal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vincent Hobbes | 4/29/2013

    " If memory serves me correctly, this is the first of Mark Tufo's work I've read. Don't read tons of zombie stories, but this one was excellent. A page turner. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie | 2/24/2013

    " I was very pleasantly suprised with this book. Yes, it has some typical zombie stuff, but it also has an interesting story, great characters, and lots of humor. I am so glad there are more books in this series! I immediately bought the next book when I finished the first! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/1/2013

    " Loved this series. Lead character reminds me a bit of Mcguyver. Well written and engrossing & gross. I think Mark is up there with Brooks and Romero "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patty | 12/11/2012

    " look's and sounds stunning can't wait to read it!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Micah | 10/17/2012

    " Enjoyable zombie novel with some interesting supernatural elements that will require further reading in the series to understand. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rishard | 4/8/2012

    " This book was great! Even if you think you're tired of zombies at this point I'd recommend it. It's more of a comedy than a typical zombie book. It feels almost like a Christopher Moore book, but a bit more serious. I have to read the next 4 really soon. "
