    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Due to the very poor narration I do not think this book is enjoyable for anyone who is not already a Sigma Force reader.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything not narrated by Christian Baskous.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has no ability to mimic an Italian or Asian accent. He sounded like a comedian trying to tell a joke about a specific nationality and using stereotypical pronunciations. The previous narrator, Peter Jay Fernandez,was quite good at separating male and female characters voices and providing specific voices for each that were believable. This narrator has no ability to provide individual character voices, not even for male and female characters making it more difficult to follow the story..


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The story is in line with the previous Sigma Force series but is definitely running out of steam. Without some new characters and better narration this will probably be my last read for this series. I might not even finish this one.

    Any additional comments?

    This chapter of the Zombie Fallout series is as good or better than each of the previous ones. The characters remain interesting and enjoyable while the story continues into a new direction that leaves you craving the next book. Can't wait for Zombie Fallout 8!!!

    There are many who do not wish for peace. As the Free Legion declares war on the survivors of Hollow Rock, Gabriel and Eric find themselves drawn ever deeper into the growing conflict. Aided by a fledgling militia, and a small contingent of federal operatives, the two warriors must find a way to defeat an unyielding enemy that threatens to destroy all they have grown to love.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Jordan Leigh’s performances?

    No. Can someone please explain to me why the narrator is changed in the middle of a successful series. By the third book readers are accustomed to, and, if they are listening to the third book, satisfied with the narration of first two. You get comfortable with the narrators voices and cadence and connect the characters with the narration. As I have previously experienced with the Sigma Force series, the replacement narrator for this series cannot hold a candle to the previous narrator, Guy Williams. The voices are forced and without emotion. The lead character, Eric, is now shallow and almost unrecognizable. If another book is offered I hope that the author and publisher have the sense to go back to Guy Williams and beg him to resume narrating the series and perhaps rerecord this one. It would be an excellent addition to the series if not for the narration.

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The first book ended and the second book picked right up as though it was the next page in the book. Surprisingly the action increased with this book while building the character at the same time. The narrator has a fantastic grip on the lead character and really brings him and the story to life. I have listened to both books twice and can't wait for third!

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    Story
    If you could sum up Day By Day Armageddon in three words, what would they be?

    The story follows the lead character from a very personal yet detached perspective that made him and the plot more interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is a steady rise and fall throughout the book allowing for personal insight squeezed between constant action.
