Really bad bad guys, mad scientists, mosters, evil plots to take over the world, hidden underground lairs, a secret government agency, none-stop action, and the baddest good guy ever - Joe Ledger. This is a great book.
To top it off Ray Porter's narration is world class, some of the best I've ever heard.
I'm becoming a big fan of Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter.
A fantastic plot premise is somewhat mishandled by Maberry. What could have been a mix of relentless action mayhem and a sense of wonder, instead becomes action mixed with endless descriptions of the evil mind. Lecturing mixed with bloody carnage. Evil is bad, genocide is evil. OK I guess i knew that already. And that Extinction Clock... Ye gods how I hated hearing that at the beginning of EVERY chapter.
Ray Porter saves this book with his outstanding narration.
Yes. It is full of action and anything that might deal with Nazi's and eugenics is my cup of tea.
I think it was when the "dogs" attacked in packs. Yikes!
His performances are always right on. He is a wonderful choice for Joe's adventures!
Of course, it was with the red headed "new men".
I was glad when Joe's new love died. She always had to make a speech instead of shoot which of course, either got her in trouble or shot. REALLY??? There had to be another way to continue with the story line then have her enter talking.
Love my family....along with guitars, cameras, and a good book!
I loved this book more than the first one! Joe ledger is a fantastic character! You have to be able to suspend reality for a while, and just let the story happen, but if you do this book will not disappoint! SO much action, and great fight sequences. There were even a few "HOLY _____ " moments in this one. Very good book! Ray Porter is AMAZING as well. LOVE the way he narrates these novels. A+ all around!
I absolutely love this series. Try it you will like it. I just love Ray Porter. What a great narrator. He is a good as Luke Daniels. They make the books come alive😎

I hope Hollywood never gets the chance to ruin the Joe Ledger series. This reading kept me hooked. The story is great but the character development made these people real. Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter are a dynamic duo ;-). It's hard to say more without spoilers, but a chapter in this book made me choke up and cry real tears!! And of course, some of the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny.
There are very few times that I actually cry out in surprise at a book, but this was one. When the real villain's identity was revealed, I yelled " Holy crap! I can't be... but it is!" Haha. It was a great moment in a fantastic and fast-paced book.
