    The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems....

    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    It has been three years since the Progerians left their mark of devastation upon Earth. The remaining humans are in a desperate race against time as they do their best to reverse engineer the alien technology they captured, in an effort to bolster their beleaguered defenses against the oncoming onslaught of Progerians hell-bent on revenge.

    Story

    I love the first three Indian Hills books, maybe more then Zombie Fallout. I was happy to see Mark Tufo return to the story where it left off. The 4th installment picks up where the third ended and while a great listen is a little off from the first three. None the less I love the adventures of Mike Talbot and gang. I often find myself laughing out loud and love how Tufo is able to take the same group of characters and put them in completely different stories. The lap-overs are always nice to see and bring back memories of the other stories. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing Michael's next story. As always Sean Runnette rocks, I could not image Mark's books without him.

    Kasey and the gang were held together by a set of rules, their Zombie Plan. It kept them alive through the beginning of the End. But when the chaos faded, they became careless, and Murphy’s Law decided to pay a long-overdue visit.

    Story

    To be up front, I thought the first book was entertaining, but I have listened to better audio books. None the less it kept me engaged enough to continue the series. Well that ends with the second book. I am amazed I made it to the end and several time thought of stopping the book as the word painful comes to mind. But it would pick up a little and I would keep going. The story line itself is nothing new and just normal.The real problem is the characters, I just did not care if they lived or died. Their stories did not capture my interest and they were not developed in a may that kept my attention. For this reason I will not be continuing the story and will seek out some other Zombie books, ones where my credits provide more enjoyment.

    In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

    To Captain Lee Harden, Project Hometown feels like a distant dream and the completion of his mission seems unattainable. Wounded and weaponless, he has stumbled upon a group of survivors that seems willing to help. But a tragedy in the group causes a deep rift to come to light and forces him into action. In the chaos of the world outside, Lee is pursued by a new threat: someone who will stop at nothing to get what he has.

    What's not to like about Captain Harden a kick ass soldier in a world gone to crap. Like most zombie stories, the creatures fall back as simple background story and the real fight is between the humans. This of course is why I like the genera so much, all about survival. I look forward to continuing the series.

    I watch True Blood and really like the TV series. The TV show stayed very close to the book, but as it was a few years since I saw season 1 it was a nice refresher. I will continue with book 2, but hope the TV show deviated a little and I get more story out of the book series.

    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.
