Summary

Apocalypse: Disorder and chaos ravage London when thousands are contaminated by the accidental discharge of an experimental bioweapon. The disease robs its hosts of rational thought, giving them a singular desire - find more living flesh to infect.

Aftermath: Peter, alone by choice and oddly thriving, finds himself suddenly responsible for the life of someone other than himself. Elsewhere, other survivors stake their own claims to land and resources, but the inexplicable swarms of undead threaten to gather and dissipate constantly.

Abandoned: The virus spreads to every corner of the country while the combined forces of the naval fleet set sail for deeper waters and leave the UK to its fate. The few groups that remain are separated after a fateful battle for England, left to their own devices.

Adversity: As if flesh-hungry zombies weren't enough, a harsh winter strikes.

Adaptation: The apocalypse continues in the penultimate chapter of the Toy Soldiers series. Will anybody make it out alive?

Annihilation: Fleeing the seemingly unstoppable enemy, the survivors pin their hopes on a final attempt for freedom, but that means they must turn their backs on their home forever.

absolutely brilliant. rollercoaster ride of action, made all the better for being set in the UK. I just can't speak highly enough of the author.

Highly Commended

If you liked the Mountain Man series narrated by the superlative RC Bray then you are in for a real treat!
I searched for something suitable as a replacement read as I had listened to the whole series and saved this book in my library for a few months.
Although narrated by the sublime John Lee I just couldn’t give it a start - what a wasted few months they were, from the starting chapter it takes you and quite simply listened to it with every bit of free time available.
With a slightly different slant - with a more militarily base and with less visceral gore than MM it is nonetheless just as powerfully written by the excellent Devon C Ford if not better in detail.
I commend this series wholeheartedly to you the listener…

A must read

If you’re like me and a bit of geek for all things eighties, then you’ll absolutely love this book. I’m still shocked at all the historically accurate gear and equipment the characters use. The book itself is thrilling, chilling and exciting. I definitely recommend it.

brilliant

I read a review before i started this, the guy that reviewed it said he had read all Devon C Fords books and said there were no main characters and he gave it back as he said it was rubbbsh well he must have read a different book than this, I thought it one of the best ones yet the only thing I didn't like was the narrator pronunciation of a GPMG's nickname Gympy but pronounced it gimp py were my pronunciation as a army vetran would call it a Jim-py, I hope there i a continuation of the story with Peter.

Fantastic story!

I loved this, had me hooked from start to finish! I really got into Peter's story, it certainly got me invested.

If you're after emotion, progression, gore, and a gripping storyline... Toy Soldiers is for you!

Best story I have listened to in years

Outstandingly well written plot and story that unfolds and makes you feel like you are lost in the world with the characters as it's going to be a long ride with happy and dad moments to make you think. British walking dead is how I see this story

solid story of the zombie apocalypse

overall I will say that the books flowed together well and were very enjoyable. although a few plot points and story lines didn't get resolved, but you can forgive that else the plot would be too complicated, I will say that the lack of description of the military equipment presumes that you know more about military hardware than the average person and I did get a little lost when that happened. overall I would reccomend.

Gripping stuff...loved it!

What a great story...believable and not holding back on the realities experience of modern life, the sometimes harrowing back stories of a few of the characters helped to drive the story as their lives and personalities evolved to cope with the trauma of living and surviving or otherwise through a world changed beyond anything they could've imagined. Changing locations and environments, realistic depictions of combat where failure results in a terrifying and known outcome for all who succumb. The narration was in the most part acceptable but of a stereotypical upper class depiction of some of my favourite characters jarred and I found myself really annoyed that the narrators interpretation of the officer ranks in the army was so bad.
Having said that this series has claimed second spot in my top 5. Arisen, Tin Soldiers, The ExtinctionCycle, Aliens Vs Predator and Fear The Sky are all brilliant!

Not what I’d anticipated!

Great story - binged it on dog walks and car journeys. Can tell the author was in public service as the language is often spot on! Gutted when it came to an end.
