    2.5 stars. I enjoyed the first two in this series but I burned out about halfway through this one. It felt like the author was burning out on the idea too. I may read the final entry, book 4, sometime in the distant future but probably not. For now, I need another vacation from all things zombie.

    Keith C Blackmore has exceeded my expectations with this 3rd installment of the Mountain Man series, excellent read and at the back of the book Keith mentions that he has a plot outlined for book 4 but only if enough interest is generated from readers.May I say, get on board and read this fantastic series and let Keith know that he has a hit here, I would love to know how Scott and Gus get back together and how that intertwines with Scott's new family.Please Mr Blackmore let us readers at the very least see the 4th book, if not more.

    Zombies plus cannibal gangs of Norsemen equals a fun, bloody post apoc tale. Still loving this series, on to book four!

    Great finale to the series. Well paced and emotionally charged along with the gore that one expects from the MM books. New characters join familiar faces in this showdown of good and evil. Fun and fast paced ride!

    Took me a while but I finally finished the 3rd Mountain Man book (I borrowed the book from another Goodreads poster and only got to the 81% mark (tried to read too many books at one time), and just this week another poster came thru for me). The book could have stood by itself as a stand-alone as it does not have much of a connection to the Mountain Man (Gus) except with the lead character (Scott) of this story being featured in the 1st Mountain Man book.I thought this was a very good zombie thriller. I enjoyed the new characters introduced in this story, the good and the bad. I liked the ending where Scott & Amy were going after Tenner as well as Fist (leader of the Norsemen). Remind me to never pi*s off Amy!In this story the zombies were not really the central factor to the story, oh they were there and still munching and chewing on the regular humans, but they were more of a side bar to the villainous killer Tenner (and what a freak he was) and the cannibalistic hoard called the Norsemen. What a group of sick puppies! So, even if you have not either of the first two Mountain Man books (where are pretty good as well), you can still enjoy this thriller.

    I'm not sure if I liked book three as much as book one, but it was still an outstanding zombie read. It picks up with some more character interaction after book two was mostly one person, so that was good, and we got to see more through the pov of some super baddies. Blackmore is highlighting one of the less obvious fears of a zombie apocalypse: those who survive into stage two may more likely be twisted than trustworthy. How long would you give a new acquaintance before letting down your guard? Blackmore is doing a good job building character engagement with an expanded cast. He's also finding new ways in each book to show us the terrors of surviving in the zombie apocalypse. Finished this and immediately bought book four, which I'm glad to see is 16 hours of narration (after the book 1-3 omnibus was 22 hours). R.C. Bray is one of the best narrators, and that makes this series that much better. Keep them coming Podium Publishing and Keith Blackmore!Reviewed Mountain Man Omnibus edition (Books 1-3) at timothycward.com

    Great to see characters from the first book get addressed in this one. Keith Blackmore isn't writing literature, but it is clear from the beginning he isn't trying. He is spinning a yarn for us, and if you enjoy zombie books, you'll enjoy this one.

    The outcome of Scott's hunt for Tenner.A new and intimidating group of marauders.And a small band of survivors with a dream.This marks the last book in the series and it satisfies on all ends save one, which you'll have to read to find out.Nicely done again Mr. Blackmore.

    It took a while for this series to grow on me but I love the anti-hero Gus. This book and the first are the best so far. I loved seeing the story from Scott's POV. I really hope Scott and Gus reconnect later in the series.

    3rd book in this series, it's a good one. Bloody and a little more action oriented and twisted than the others. If you're squeamish, I'm sure you'll love the Norsemen. Fair warning: There are a couple curse words in here, but don't worry, they don't detract from the story one bit.

    No time right now for a long review, but enjoyed finally reading the rest of Scott's story. Would love a MM 4 - I have a wish list of things I would like to see.... :)

    If you're into post apocalyptic zombie literature Keith Blackmore is one of the best authors out there.

    What a guilty pleasure! I'm going to write a review for the trilogy all at once, because I don't want to take the time to hunt and remember all three books. So, this is only for people, like me, who appreciate zombie apocalypse fiction. All others, ignore this.Both the author and the reader are wonderful. Entertaining and suspenseful. Characters came to life, from the two main characters in the first and last novel to the psycopathic killer and hells angel cannibalistic motorcycle gang. Blackmore scores in the little things. His first main character being an alcoholic, the prizing of toilet paper in an apocalypse, zombie babies (in his first story, Hospital, which is a prologue). Enjoyed immensely.

    I hate, hate, hate zombie books, so I would never have picked the first book in this series up, except that R.C. Bray narrates the audiobook versions of these books. And R.C. Bray would make the phone book worth listening to. While I likely would have given up after the first book in the series without R.C. Bray, with him, I'm willing to give it another chance (plus, I got an omnibus edition with the first three books, and I didn't have anything else waiting in the queue for listening). It's unlikely I will pick up the fourth book, but then again, there is R.C. Bray to listen to, so I'm not willing to say I won't pick it up at some point.

    Initially disappointed this didn’t follow Gus’ story from books one and two, and initially unsure about the Norsemen characters, this turned into a pitch-perfect cross-genre action adventure novel, tying the storylines within ingeniously and seamlessly. Nicely drawn characters and many imaginative visual images. Great book!

    Tough book to review. I dislike graphic violence and cruelty (that is just from the villains to emphasize how evil they are). However, the book is well written and I would have to say I enjoyed the book in the end. I liked the main character and supporting characters (the good characters that is).

    Really liked this third book. It lets us know what happens to the charters Scott and Tanner from the first book. You get introduced to a new group of survivors and the Mad Maxish group of the Norsemen. All in all fun and crazy read.

    For a zombie apoc fan, I am sure this would be a great book. For me, it was a bit much. No more zombies for a while. May eventually return for book 4, but I need a rest from the gore.

    I really love this series. I rarely find a good zombie story/series, so I'd definitely recommend this one to others. I listened to the audiobook version of this whole series, at least up to Book 3. One thing that annoyed me with this story was that there was a new character (I forgot his name, but he was referred to as ‘Newfoundland’) and his accent. For whatever reason, the author and therefore the narrator would repeat what the guy said, only certain words, every so often throughout the story. It would be like ‘He said it this way…’ I’m listening so I can hear the difference, although I’d imagine the spelling would have been different, so the reader should have figured that the guy was pronouncing the words differently. It was almost like the author was proving to the reader that he had done some research to find the correct spelling/pronunciation of the accented words.By the time I got to Book 3 I was curious about what was going on with Scott. Thankfully, he was brought back into the story, but prior to him meeting up with his group I couldn’t help but feel there was a good amount of coincidence between him and Gus. Both men were out walking around on the snow-packed ground only to realize there were zombies under the snow who ended up chasing after them. They both end up in another attic as well. The fact that there are similarities between the two characters suggests to me that the author was low on ideas. I don’t know though.This was when I started noticing such redundancies/repetitions with the writers writing style, for example, “He stepped around the corner and peeked around the corner.” Or the wannabe jokes of “I know there’s a joke in there but…”. Or the repetition of “Home again home again jiggity jig” by two different characters that hadn’t any ‘scenes’ together. There’s also the only two females that like to knee people. I was confused about something…At one point Tanner is hanging out and then killing the curry guy (who was all alone) in the military base. Then it goes to Scott and the Vikings parts. Once Scott meets up with his new group he learns that Tanner is with them too. They know he’s looking for the armory. When did he meet this group though? If he was really interested in weapons and locating the armory why pretend to be friendly with them? It was also strange that Tanner thought he’d be able to kill them one at a time without the others suspecting anything as well.So, the Vikings were essentially a mix of Tanner and the zombies. Tanner because they went around looking for survivors to kill. Zombies because they ate them.One big thing that had me knowing for a fact the author wasn’t American? His use of the metric system! lol

    ABR's full Hellifax audiobook review and many others can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.SPOILER ALERT. If you have not read “Mountain Man book 1″ and “Safari (Mountain Man Book 2)” best read them before this one. They are both well worth the time and give you a base for what happens in the following books.In this installment we start with a caravan of vans on the trans-Canadian highway. The men inside were rough, dirty, mean, and wore a variety of protective gear. Calling themselves “Norsemen” with a leader named Fist. He had been sent from the West coast to check out the east coast for supplies, survivors, and zombies. Their goal was to get information, procure everything they could, and kill zombies. They were headed to Hellifax.Scott had finally made it to the city. He arrived during a vicious blizzard. When the snow finally stopped it was very deep with high drifts. He left his SUV parked at an empty house and headed toward town. It was there that he met Amy and her friends. One of them was named Tanner. A lot of grizzly things happen after this.Tanner arrived in Hellifax and started doing his thing. He had decided to take out the members of Amy’s group one at a time. It didn’t work out that way.As Scott and Amy’s group head out for his SUV Tanner discovers why all the zombies are leaving town. That is when he decided to leave also.Toward the end of town the Norsemen, Scott’s group and Tanner will engage. Who do you think will live?Extremely well developed story lines. Full of fast paced action. This series just keeps getting better and better.Mr. Bray did his usual splendid job of bringing this book to life. I didn’t have a problem with his voices and he really got into at times. Everything was clear and easy to understand. Audio production was without fault. I really liked the book cover too. It is perfect for this story.Audiobook purchased for review by ABR.Please find this complete review and many others at audiobookreviewer dot com[If this review helped, please press YES. Thanks!]

    What a belter of a book this was! I've read parts one and two, loved them both but suspected this one might be even better, and it was. I believe it could be read as a stand alone, as any info needed from the other books is given, and this is a whole new adventure with many new characters.The main character is Scott, who became friends with mountain man Gus in the first book ~ this follows his fortunes as he sets off for Halifax (Canada, not Yorkshire!) to seek out the evil Tenner, who massacred his friends. In 'Hellifax' Scott meets up with a new group, martial arts student and teacher Amy and Vic, and former cop Buckle, amongst others. The book's written partly from his POV and partly from that of psychopath Tenner ~ and, talking of psychopaths, we also meet the terrifying Norsemen, a group of road warriors who know no fear and have an alternative strategy when it comes to keeping themselves fed and alive.Then there are the rats....This is not a zombie apocalypse book for the faint of heart, and there are no nice little groups of survivalists. It's horror, from beginning to end. Absolutely gripping, I loved it from start to finish, one of the best books I've read this year. The story itself is multi-faceted and unpredictable with never a dull or safe moment, and the characterisation is terrific, too. There are a few editing 'glitches' but they're minor, and didn't spoil it at all. At the end there's an author's note saying that Blackmore was not sure if there would be a book 4, but happily there is. I am now going to start reading it. :)

    I really enjoyed this book. When I started this series I had no idea that this story was based in Nova Scotia, Canada, so it was a nice surprise since I live in New Brunswick - just 20 minutes away from Nova Scotia. I was never bored while reading this book. I love all the characters, even the bad ones because they are very believable.

    Super boring, it took me 6 days to get through this one and that's a fairly long time for me. Some parts were okay, other times I wasn't even listening and didn't really mind not knowing what had happened.The zombies in these books are super inconsistent. Firstly the books never offer any explanation to how the zombies came to be in the first place--and how come there aren't any new zombies appearing? It's something that has affected the majority of the population so far, so why did it stop? Not a single new zombie is made in the books. Secondly, the zombies are sometimes described as absolutely mindless with no other purpose than feeding, yet at other times they are "grinning at" the people or "considering", even "thinking", which goes directly against the other times where they are described as having no thinking capabilities.This book finally has a female character though, so yay to that! Too bad she's extremely generic and boring, and only serves to direct the male protagonist's actions and thinking. Oh, and she's also sexualised hell of a lot. Not so yay after all.Two stars is me being generous, to be honest. The gory parts were fairly well written and some parts were relatively creepy, I just had a hard time taking it seriously when the rest of the book was so terrible.

     "Blankety blank rats, man, and I thought zombies creeped me out."This is the third book of the MOUNTAIN MAN series that I've read and they just get bloodier, guttier, and more gruesome. Just what a good zombie book is supposed to do.This book has Scott going to Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia, on the trail of Tenner, the serial killer who thinks he's a god.Along the way he runs into Moes, zombie rats, maniacal rig pigs, and...other survivors of this terrible devastation that has hit the world.I missed the comic relief of Gus. 400+ pages of blood and guts with no let up did get a little tiring. But I did enjoy the new characters that were added.If you're just thinking of reading this series, you should start at the beginning.1/2. "The Hospital" - short story that starts out this crazy zombie fest (also included in "Cauldron Gristle")1. "Mountain Man"2. "Safari"3. "Hellifax"And since I waited for awhile to finish the series, book 4 "Well Fed" is out and I'll be reading it next. This really has been a humdinger of a series so far and I am really looking forward to see how it ends.Do be warned - if you haven't got the inkling so far - that there is blood, guts, gore, profanity and more in this series.

    Oh Keith...... Did you have to rush on book 3 or something?(Warning: spoilers)Well, although I still liked all 3 books, this one was slow and boring for the first half.I still gave it 4 stars because I loved the last quarter of the book. I hope book 4 has more originality. The use of the same phrases over and over from book 1 to 3 is irritating. I love the phrase "zombies looking for hugs" so that's ok to re-use from time to time, but to actually say "the zombie was the biggest he'd ever seen, must have been a basketball player before the outbreak" (paraphrasing),for the main male character in 2 different books, irritated me...another was "he held the pistol and flashlight like he'd seen in the movies" ...There were other phrases but those 2 irked me most. And enough hiding in a f*cking attic for 2 days to avoid moes... it's been done enough... the rats started to get boring too...and I MISSED GUS, AND HIS DRINKING AND BALL SCRATCHING!!!!!I hope Book 4 is more original, now that Gus is with new people...I also hope they don't make him stop drinking, swearing, and going on safari.

    After two books of the great Augustus Berry, and the third book having only his mention, there's no way this book could be as great as the ones that came before it. Still, it's a very good read. We pick up with Scott and Tenner, and we meet some new people, but nobody in this book is fleshed out and is as interesting as Gus, and that is where I am biased when it comes to judging this book.It's a little longer than it needed to be and some scenes are dragged out for too long. Few times I found myself bored (I didn't with the other books). It needed more editing than the previous books, a lot of typos and mistakes, but doesn't really detract from the reading.The ending is great, however, and made me miss Gus all the more.Still, this Keith guy can write and I will read more of his work in the future. I find it hard to believe he'll ever top the first two books in this series, though.

    We find out what the secondary menace in the apocalypse is. I always thought the cockroach would be the critter to survive everything, oh well. An interesting twist in the story, but didn't add much to the plot and didn't last too long. Our hero Scott is on his way to Hellifax to hunt down the killer of his friends from book one. The serial killer Tenner has been enjoying the lawless apocalypse and keeping quite busy. Scott is on his trail. A third party makes their appearance; "Fist" and his gang of ne'er do wells add their cannibal ways to the mix. Add the rampaging zombies and it's getting a little crowded in here. Makes for a lot of action though; gruesome action, very gruesome. Good story, good ending to the series. Or is it? Gus is still out there somewhere. Room for book four to tie up loose ends?
