    The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating unmentionables. But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    I'm only part way through, but the narrator is fantastic and the story is fantastic! So what! if our hero is perfect in a rugged sort of way.He can be my hero anytime.As far as story line other reviews have summed it up well. (Who wants to work when you have a decent book to listen too. :).

    The story of a Polish-Jewish family that was destined to the horrors of WWII that evolves into the story of one of the sons - a young man, Gabe, who would be rounded up and sent to work camps where he faced death and/or torture constantly. After years he would escape with a close friend and together they would seek a new life - by then over 200 family members including Gabe's parents and two of his brothers had been brutally murdered and so there was deep remorse that followed, mixed with the yearnings for revenge.

    The end of the world has come not with a bang or a whimper, but with the guttural snarl of walking corpses hungry for human flesh. The "lucky" survivors flee an unstoppable virus spreading death and societal collapse across the globe. As the rules of civilization crumble, a lawyer, a pilot, and a nurse become comrades-in-arms in the fight against extinction. But not every enemy wears a rotting face, and anyone who doesn’t have your back just might have your head. Humankind’s twilight is at hand, and these are indeed...dark days.

    Story

    A vulnerability about this character, where his friend is more the strong silent type.The narrator brings all the book to life.he was excellent. I highly recommend no1 and 2 in this series. Although it follows the theme every zombie book has. It has a slightly different flavor. Full of action, adventure and has a good ending which to me is most important.

    The nightmare home. We thought we'd found our haven, a cottage deep in the heart of the forest. Quaint, charming, maybe a little run-down, but so peaceful. The woodland animals and birds couldn't have been more neighbourly. That was the first part of the Magic. Midge's painting and my music soared to new heights of creativity. That was another part of the Magic. Our sensing, our feelings, our love for each other - well, that became the supreme Magic. But the cottage had an alternative side. The Bad Magic.

    But beware of the bats and crazy cultists.Mitch was a bit annoying, when she was seeking answers from her dead parents, but thank god! She saw the light just in time.kept me listening which is good as I don't always finish a book.

    Ely Stone returns to the wilds of upper Michigan from the military. A jaded and wounded warrior, he accepts a job as his tribe's special agent and sets off to troubleshoot the ominous Muskcrat Island. He finds love in the form of a beautiful girl, but things only go badly from there. Chinese agents, an old Russian spy, and secretive U.S. Air Force operatives are all after something on the island; and the former Coast Guardsman is right in the way.

    Ely escapes death, but, at the end of his tribal mission, he finally hears the "The Murmurings"....

Authorities brought in to investigate discover the horrific virus not only kills, but it reanimates its victims, turning them into the walking dead. In spite of the government believing they have contained the outbreak, samples of the contagion are brought to the United States via infected military and other victims. The virus breaks boundaries and the infection spreads initiating the ground invasion of the War against the Undead.

    I got into this book when I found out which people were the main characters.One ended up listening to a lot of stories about people and there lives. Making you wonder, how they were going to escape the situation, thinking they must be one of the main people in the story, then they died. I was disappointed a few times.Overall I enjoyed this book .Even if it was just for the mills and boon ending.

In fact, they may have more to fear than the walking dead in the person of Alcatraz's reigning Chosen One, the charismatic proponent of law and order Jefferson Bascomb, who believes zombies have the right to a fair trial.

Will his special-forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew?

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    I read that review and wondered what the reviewer was talking about until I listened to the book. It was a very frustrating listen.The author just needed to keep the story going.So add
    Stupid doctors , with whining potential, and red necks who are allowed to roam around willy nilly with guns and no real lawmen or women and you have disaster.
