    There are reasons we fear the night. He isn't one of them. Bill Ryder was a dateless dweeb...then he died. Unfortunately for him that was just the beginning of his troubles. He awoke to find himself a vampire, one of the legendary predators of the night. Unfortunately for him, he was still at the bottom of the food chain. Now he finds himself surrounded by creatures stronger, deadlier and a whole lot cooler than he is. Worst yet, they all want him dead...permanently this time.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I have already recommended this book, actually the entire series, to all of my friends and family!


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story is light and funny. There was never a dull moment and the geeky humor had me laughing out loud in public (which resulted in many curious glances from bystanders).


    What about Christopher John Fetherolf’s performance did you like?

    Mr Fetherolf is also going to the top of my favorite narrators list, just under Sean Runnette, Grover Gardener, and Amanda Ronconi!!


    Who was the most memorable character of Bill the Vampire and why?

    Well it is Bill, of course!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I truly loved this book, the story, the characters and the narrator!

    A sinister darkness has finally cast its long shadow across the world, and Adrian Ring now suspects he's at the center of the maelstrom. And he's not alone. Even overseas, his friend Kevin is somehow standing at his side. At Auburn Lake, Adrian and his adopted family finally understand that the dreams they have suffered since the end of the world are far more than restless imaginings. When a thousand mindless dead arrive holding books, can it be anything but a message from beyond the grave?

    Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

    Aminata Diallo is the beguiling heroine of Lawrence Hill's Someone Knows My Name. In it, Hill exquisitely imagines the tale of an 18th-century woman's life, spanning six decades and three continents. The fascinating story that Hill tells is a work of the soul and the imagination. Aminata is a character who will stir listeners, from her kidnapping from Africa through her journeys back and forth across the ocean.

    Nick Gautier is tired of his destiny. He doesn’t want to be the son of a demon who’s fated to end the world. Nor does he want to see another demon or other preternatural creature who wants to kill or enslave him. He just wants to be normal and have normal problems like everyone else. But normality isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

    I'm loving this series and can't wait for the next book! The author and the narrator are a magical team! With that being said..it seemed like Holter's character voices were different with this book than in the previous books. When I first started this last book, I thought it was a new narrator and had to check the details...maybe it's just me? Anyway...I love the books! The story is great and the narrator breathes life into the characters! I highly recommend listening to this series even if you haven't read/listened to the other dark hunter books yet.

    For the first time, the Internet phenomenon is now in print! Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors.

    This turned out to be a great story! The narrator, James Foster is very good and has a way of breathing life into the characters. The story itself is very interesting and well written. My only complaint is that the book didn't seem long enough...I could have listened to Adrian's diary entries for a few more hours at least! Thank Goodness there is a Volume 2...which I will be starting as soon as I finish writing this review! Nice work Mr. Philbrook & Mr. Foster!

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    Story

    Well written and very realistic story. The writing is consistent and the character development is good. The narrator is pretty good. I personally prefer a narrator who sounds like they are telling the story rather than reading it from a script (the latter seems to be the case here) but this narrator has a nice, smooth voice and his character voice tones are believable (no weird, irritating, or squeaky female voices). Overall, I am enjoying this book and will have no problem finishing the series (4 books in all so far).

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won an Anthony Award for her one-of-a-kind Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. Sookie, a Louisiana cocktail waitress, skilled telepath, and friend to vampires, has a dedicated fan base that grows larger every day.

    Story

    Another fantastic addition to the Southern Vampire series. However, something seemed to be wrong with the audio and/or narration this time. Sookie seemed to lose some of her southern accent in this book and I could hear the narrator swallowing frequently. It was pretty distracting. This shouldn't prevent you from listening to the book though. I'm picky when it comes to narration and if you can get past the somewhat minor audio issues the story is 100% worth a credit! I just hope Johanna is back on track for book #6 because the 1st four books were read perfectly.

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.
