Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying.

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Story

    Another great story from Mark Tufo. I loved getting to see Michael Talbot again in a different story line, although connected to Zombie Fallout. The book says you don't have to have read Zombie Fallout, which is true. But I recommend you finish that series first, as there are lots of references.

    Ask yourself this: If the dead rise tomorrow, are you ready? Do you have a plan? The dead rose, and the living quickly realized that Hollywood-style tactics were the quickest way to find yourself one of the walking dead. Kasey, a strong-willed loner from West Virginia, and Ben, a college student from Pennsylvania, have shared an unlikely friendship over the years. And their bond is stretched to its limits when society collapses under a tide of zombies. But Kasey has something she likes to call The Zombie Plan.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    It has been a long time since I picked up a Stephen King book, and this one brought back why I love his writing so much. The character development and pace of the story are great. I was entertained right till the end. I loved the long length of the book, felt like a great deal.

    The Walking Dead original novel series, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic universe, continues with The Fall of the Governor. From co-authors Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic book and executive producer of AMC's blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker Award-finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

    Story

    Overall I have enjoyed the Walking Dead Audiobook series, but they could be much better. I am a huge fan of the TV series, but the books hit a mediocre level. I suspect they are thrown together to simply make some cash of the success of other parts of the franchise. Don't get me wrong, I have heard worse stories and will buy part 2 to this book, but I have other zombie novels I like much better. Check out Zombie Fallout for a well written series.

The bulk of the storm has passed over the world, leaving echoing thunder and softly drifting ashes. But for the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure is just beginning.

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Story

    I don't get all the negative reviews on this book. Ok it's not the original author as he passed away. It would have been nice if he had finished the series, but tragedy struck.

    I think Thom did a very good job finishing things up. The story moved along much in the way I think Recht would have written it. Is it perfect no, but I was entertained and looked forward to putting the the headset on to listen to the story. I am glad I stuck the series out. I am a Zombie fan and this one did a great job taking it from the military approach to the rag tag band of survivors. I recommend the series to anyone who likes then genera, you won't be disappointed

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    Story

    Dan Brown was was an exciting read. I was on the edge of seat and could not wait to get back to his earlier books. But I found Symbols disappointing and Inferno continues with that thought. It's not the worse story ever, but such a formula, it is getting boring. Paul Michael does a wonderful job, but with this story I found myself tuning out, which is not a good thing. I think Robert Langdon needs to rest now, try writing a different character.

As her family life is turned asunder she is thrown into an indifferent Social Services program where she defends herself the only way she knows how. Callis is moved from home to home until she finally settles at the Lowries. As she starts her first day of high school she meets both her favorite and least favorite person. Both happen to be part of the same household.

    Story

    Wow not sure what these other reviewers are seeing in this book. Purchased because of good reviews, but the writing style makes it dreadful. The journal style with it saying every few minutes Tuesday January 18th 1:30pm.....Friday January 27th ..... Drives you nuts and makes the book so boring and frustrating to listen to. At first I thought it was just the start of the book, but it does not go away. I see why the author used this style, it allows him to basically avoid stringing his story together. The fact I finished the book is why I gave it 2 stars, but I have no intention of finishing the series and yes that means I won't know what happen to these two dimensional characters. Oh well not going to lose sleep over it, at least I bought it on sale for $10
