com This book is dedicated to Travis. His voice echoed down the dark alley as the various clubs and bars of Austin’s Sixth Street pounded out their club vibe through expensive speakers. Why you ask me that, gringo? replied the muscular and heavily tattooed Hispanic man standing by a large delivery truck labeled with the Grandma Smith’s Garden label. Grandma Smith was holding a basket of vegetables as if she had just made a trip to the garden in her backyard. Knitting needles jutted out from the bun in her hair.

The, Fall of Austin, was everything I like in a zombie book. It is fast paced from start to finish, filled with very believable characters, and placed in a setting you can tell the author knows well

Down the Road: A Zombie Horror Story is Bowie Ibarra's first novel and is a respectable effort. Down the Road does several other things right. The action scenes are very well described and I, at times, could feel my heart rate rising. The book follows George Zaragoza, a teacher, as he tries to make his way home through a zombie infested wasteland. Along the way he has to fight through zombies, FEMA road blocks, and other survivors. Now that is an indicator that the scenes are framed well. Another thing that I enjoyed was the description of how small towns and civilians reacted to the outbreak.

When the dead rise, the living must unite. Officer Mike Runyard of the Austin Police Department and his partner, Derek Tucker, are stuck in the middle of a city overrun with the living dead. With resources and luck running out, Runyard is flung into a fight for survival among the living, the dead, and a wave of criminals released from jail into the streets of central and south Austin. Meanwhile, the U.S. military fights to reclaim Texas, with failure meaning the complete loss of the capital, Austin. A military Humvee traveling down IH-35, headed into the zombie-ridden city, holds the key to a plan meant to turn the tide in the fight. It's a simple plan, but it's a plan that's about to fail with devastating consequences...

Generally when I finish a book, I try to write a review as quickly as I can. It's taken me about a month to write the review for Down the Road: The Fall of Austin, primarily because it's difficult to describe the experience adequately. The third and final entry in the Down the Road series show literary maturity when compared to the other two entries. Ibarra leaves the playful and deadly world of survivors behind and chooses to focus on the military response, which is anything but reassuring. Instead of standing up for the people, various military groups (read: America and the UN) begin a fierce power struggle, which pit the service men against one another with disastrous (and sadistic) results. In true Ibarra fashion, the events in The Fall of Austin are connected to the events in the previous two books, but don't necessarily include all the same faces. (I'm not saying more for fear of spoiling the book for you).

More evidence of Ibarra's literary maturity can be found in the characterization. As always, Ibarra is a master at keeping all characters fresh and relevant, never totally revealing a true "main character". However, he goes above and beyond in that the characters are completely unpredictable. Yes, the theme of a crumbling military is not a new theme, but Ibarra still manages to bring something new to the table in the sheer brutality with which the men fight their personal battles. Meanwhile, a drug dealer and his crew of criminal homeboys seek to capitalize on new alliances and new freedoms.

"Down the Road: The Fall of Austin" is as deeply entertaining as it is deeply unsettling. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in a good read, and doesn't mind staying up all night long to finish reading it!

Boring story, poorly written. I generally give author's a lot of wiggle room, but I couldn't finish 1/4 th of this novel and I am not only a fan of this genre, but also live in Austin. The characters are trite, the plot....oh, never mind. Don't waste your time or money.

another great book by this south texas author! the way the characters were brought together and the connections they had was great!it showed how chaotic things can get and excactly how the rules can change when there are no rules. highly recommended to zombie fans as well as Bowie's other books.An author who not only enjoys writing but puts a little of himself and his passion into every book.i hope this helps anyone looking into this or any other books by this author

You need to read the other books to understand whats going on, but the book itself is well written. I love this series and hope the author writes more. Well edited, great characters and really hooks you in

If the end of the world as we know it happended, would you lose the time you have left to go after someone you dislike so you could kill him? No? That's what I tought. The characters in this book are really bizarre and almost everybody is a sociopath. Cops are deranged, soldiers just want to kill one another. It is very frustating to read. Plus the writer loves to describe the damages that a bullet inflict on people and zombies. I love zombies stories but this one is really too unbelievable for me.

High ideals, and petty squabbles intertwine as people's struggle to survive in a world gone wrong, where the dead walk.
Bowie Ibarra's zombieverse is mind blowing. His "Down the Road" series all connect so amazingly once you read one of them you will be hooked and have to read them all, again and again
