    Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, award-winning authors of such best sellers as Footfall and The Legacy of Heorot, return us to the Mote, and to the universe of Kevin Renner and Horace Bury, of Rod Blaine and Sally Fowler. There, 25 years have passed since humanity quarantined the mysterious aliens known as Moties within the confines of their own solar system. They have spent a quarter century analyzing and agonizing over the deadly threat posed by the only aliens mankind has ever encountered - a race divided into distinct biological forms, each serving a different function: Master, Mediator, Engineer, Warrior.

    The year is 2061, and the planet is dying. Cataclysmic solar storms have forced leaders from around the world to finally put aside their differences and agree on one thing - to jump ship. The human race is headed to Mars. Dr. Sophie Winston is hired by New Tech Corporation to test a biosphere deep within the heart of Cheyenne Mountain; a mission she believes will help prepare NTC for the three-year flight to the red planet. But, just days into the assignment, things start to go wrong. When the blast doors hiss open, Winston's team finds a changed world outside.

    It's been twelve years since the undead hordes swept over the earth forcing mankind to the brink of extinction. We now live like rats, scavenging in the ruins of our fallen civilization as the dead hunt us night and day. There is little left to scavenge, however. Grocery stores were emptied ages ago, gas tanks have long been dry and bullets are so precious that a man is lucky to have two to his name. Still, we survive. But for how much longer? Instinct and love have combined to turn Darwin's theory on its head. The strongest didn't survive in this world. They were the first to die, leaving behind a generation of orphans. It's a generation that's never had a full belly. It's a generation that has no idea what an Xbox did, or what algebra is for. It's a generation of children who never laugh out loud, and who have learned to cry softly because the dead are always near and the dead are always so very, very hungry.

    Story

    Peter Meredith's Apocalypse series is my favorite Zombie series of all time, but this book was garbage. It played on the fans love for Jillybean, so no real thought went into it since he knew it would sell if it had her name in it. Her turns our favorite character into someone no one can really like. It had good ideas that never went anywhere, 8-10 foot monster Zombies could've been awesome, but they don't do anything. The main characters are from a town with ZERO defenses that somehow managed to survive these huge zombies and all the slavers that plague the land. They talk about "signs" all the time which gets very annoying. The characters from that community have never heard of Jillybean, Capt. Gray, Sadie, Neil, etc. even though it's only been 12 years since the apocalypse started. You mean to tell me that in a world with no real entertainment that the story of a six year old girl who destroyed the most powerful dictatorships in the wasteland wouldn't have spread to everyone everywhere??? She would've become a legend that EVERYONE would have heard of. It's completely ridiculous. The narrator was terrible, the only voice he did that sounded good was Stew's voice, every other voice was extremely annoying. If you still wanna know the story because it involves Jillybean then I would suggest reading the book instead of listening to this audio book. I can't express how disappointed I am with this book, nothing happens, it's all about finding antibiotics.

    For Jillybean, moments of utter happiness and pure sanity are as fleeting and wonderful as sun-showers at a July picnic. Her time with Granny Annie is one such moment, but as always it ends far too quickly and she is once more thrust back into a world of crushing loneliness and endless despair.

    Being a sentient spaceship really should be more fun. But after spreading out through space for almost a century, Bob and his clones just can't stay out of trouble. They've created enough colonies so humanity shouldn't go extinct. But political squabbles have a bad habit of dying hard, and the Brazilian probes are still trying to take out the competition. And the Bobs have picked a fight with an older, more powerful species with a large appetite and a short temper.

Civilization has flourished on Ghara's fertile moons, but humanity's drive to colonize and explore is still strong. Detecting plentiful mineral resources and a rich abundance of alien life on the nearby planet of Selva, the Gharian Colonists mount a dangerous expedition

    Piloted by a six-year-old girl, the godlike Skalm guards the Districts of TASC. Her family is long dead. Her adopted father is a synthetic copy of an alien, her nanny an artificial mind connected via subspace to every part of the globe, feeding the young girl information, finding prey to satiate her growing thirst. But the young girl is an innocent, a victim, one of millions the war has already claimed.

    Find the missing. Fear the found. Three months have passed since the aliens' arrival, but little has changed in the skies. Motherships still hover, impervious to attack and communication. Spherical shuttles ferry about with unclear intentions. But the abductions of select humans have ended, and most of those taken have been returned - dazed, incoherent, and prophesying glory or doom, but home where they belong. Still, nine seemingly unconnected people remain missing.

    I like this story a lot but I hate most of the characters personalities. Lila is a stupid whore and her mother is the biggest bitch ever. They treat Raj like shit because they're all hypocrites. I hope he kills them all, but if not, then at least Lila.

    Tales of horror from one of the masters of the genre. Peter Meredith delivers stories that will keep you devouring them one after another. From the Pen - a gift that just keeps on killing, to "The Eyes in the Storm" - a beast that feeds on those who dare to go out when nature is at its cruelest, to "The Haunting at Red Feathers" - a true haunting that has the young couple trapped in the woods with a demonic presence, begging: "Don't let the night catch me here!"

    I usually give 5 stars across the board for Peter Meredith books, but this one was lacking. The only stories that where any good are the witch and the pen. the other stories were stupid. he should have just put the witch story at the beginning of his last apocalypse book because this seemed like just a way to make extra money without effort. his other books are awesome though

    What will you do when the world ends? That's a question that needs answering quickly when the gates to Hell open up all over Earth. Taking place across the globe is an apocalypse like no other, as humanity finds itself at war against a smart and merciless foe. Follow the struggles of survival with several characters, as things go from bad to worse. Humanity is dwindling.
