    In a desperate bid to take back the continental United States - where hordes of undead now dominate the ravaged human population - a Navy commander leads a global mission to the heart of the pandemic. Task Force Hourglass is humanity’s final hope, and his team’s agonizing decisions could mean living one day more - or surrendering to the eternal hell that exists between life and death.

    The narrator really needs to know how to say things the chief of the boat would never say call me C-O-B he would say call me the cob, like corn on the cob. Also kunai is not pronounced right and Rangeley all places where I have been stationed. It just seems like the narrator of the book could get it right. Same with buds

    The third son of a duke, Lord Clayton Clearbrook, discovers he needs to marry quickly and sets his sights on Miss Briana Garland for a convenient marriage. To his shock, Briana, wanting love, denies the nobleman. However, when an enemy comes calling, the couple soon discovers that love may indeed be the most important weapon of all... This sweet historical romance series, about a duke's family, includes delightful, heartwarming love stories that bring the Regency period to life.

She headed into the wilderness as a good-bye, to leave everything behind. But then the end of the world happened, and Alex took the first step down a treacherous road of betrayal and terror and death. Now, with no hope of rescue - on the brink of starvation in a winter that just won't quit - she discovers a new and horrifying truth. The Change isn't over.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book was all over the place. It became hard to follow there where so many story lines. The killing and fighting goes on and on and on. You just get lost with who is fighting with which changed and which person in the book. not worth the time.


    What was most disappointing about Ilsa J. Bick’s story?

    the number of chapters it just ran on and on .


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her screaming and the same phrases over and over run run run.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Monsters?

    a large part in the middle it just ran on and on.
