Dead Moon Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Audible number-one best seller Peter Clines returns with a thrilling tale of the creature above - and the deadly threat below.
In the year 2243, the Moon belongs to the dead.
The largest graveyard in the solar system, it was the perfect solution to the overcrowding and environmental problems that had plagued mankind for centuries. And the perfect place for Cali Washington to run away from her past.
But when a mysterious meteor crashes into one of the Moon’s cemeteries, Cali and her fellow Caretakers find themselves surrounded by a terrifying enemy force that outnumbers them more than a thousand to one. An enemy not hindered by the lack of air or warmth or sustenance.
An enemy that is already dead.
Now Cali and her compatriots must fight to survive. Because if they don’t, everyone on the Moon may be joining the dead.
And maybe everyone on Earth, too....

No spoilers. The story takes zombies and not only puts them on the moon but adds a few unique twists. Mr. Clines characters are (as always) enjoyable and rich. This is one that is hard to put down.
The story is completely nonsensical with character motivations that are beyond stupid, and world building unbelievably paper thin and lazy. Humans are technologically advanced enough to have space elevators to the moon but literally the best use Humanity can think of is to bury corpses on it. Because the Earth is too full of corpses. Too many bodies that apparently don't decompose anymore, and burning them is "bad for the environment".
It's as entertaining as it is stupid, and it's really stupid. Someone really needs to make this a movie.
Return of the Living Zombies on the Moon: 5 stars.

Something terrible is coming, something so old and wounded that it no longer even knows what it was. When it hits the moon? Everything changes in moments, it's simply not immediately clear that it has. They think it's just another meteor, until they get a strange distress call from a Caretaker Base which then stops answering. When they loose contact with a second they go check what's happening, with nothing more to go on than "The dead are outside, I don't know how long the seals will hold" as a distress call and a single survivor having escaped the area who isn't answering calls either.
Until they find the survivor-and discover that he's still moving despite damage to his suit that means he can only be dead. Until they see for themselves that preserved corpses, thanks to the lack of any sort of weather on the moon, are digging themselves right out of their own graves. That they are opening suit seals, not tearing them off the living. That there is enough intelligence behind whatever is causing this the zombies may be able to operate controls on vehicles and buildings...
The most creepy aspect of the story is that, on the moon, there is realistically nowhere to run. If something is after you and they can get into your base? You have only one choice-fight. But here, they are up against the already dead, so they can only run. Cali and everyone on the moon are up against something so unlike anything anyone has ever encountered that they best they can do is fight what they can, run from what they can't and pray for rescue-which likely isn't coming.
I particularly liked the fact nobody has any warning of what's happening until the nightmare has begun. The team sent to check on the meteorite impact doesn't even guess at a problem-until one of them thinks the exposed arm of a corpse just tried to grab her leg...
The characters are great 3 dimensional ,heroic whilst being down to earth . There's plenty of action and the storyline is simple but exciting and interesting .
I would like to see these characters again especially Calil and Tessa ,there's a series for them ,X-Files on the moon or more like Ghostbusters or Kolchak
