    When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, the Iranian government then asks them to help find six nuclear bombs planted in the Mideast oil fields. These stolen WMDs will lead Joe and Echo Team into hidden vaults of forbidden knowledge, mass-murder, betrayal, and a brotherhood of genetically-engineered killers with a thirst for blood.

    Story

    If you liked the other Joe Ledger books than this one will not disappoint. Fast paced with a bit of supernatural mystery and Joe's mouthy commentary. Lots of fight scenes like the previous books and some old and new characters. Listened to it in two days while doing some mundane tasks. It kept me quite entertained and I had a hard time putting it down when I needed to actually concentrate on something.

    Best-selling author Michael J. Sullivan’s mesmerizing Riyria Revelations series has found a welcome home with fans of magic, clashing swords, and daring heroes. This second volume finds Royce and Hadrian on a quest to enlist the southern Nationalists to aid the ever-weakening kingdom of Melengar. Royce suspects an ancient wizard is manipulating them all, but to find the truth he’ll have to decipher Hadrian’s past—a past Hadrian wants to keep secret.

    Would you listen to Rise of Empire again? Why?

    It took a little bit to get into the first book and I wasn't sure I would want to keep going but I hung in there. This book, and the previous, is great and the narrator does and excellent job with the voices of different characters. No boring slow parts where I feel the urge to fast forward either. It just keeps going at a good pace with plenty of mysteries slowly revealed to the listener about all of their pasts and the potential future. Highly recommended.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between the two thieves is great.


    What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a great job of voicing the different characters with dialects and inflections.

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    Where does Zombie Fallout rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This ranked pretty high for me. Day by day is still the top zombie book series so far but this one is right up there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was a little worried about the "slapstick" description that some people have mentioned but I actually think it fits in just fine and does not detract at all from the story. It is just part of the character's profile. The story works well for me and is believable for a zombie book. One thing that always bothers me about these types of books is when the author tries to write about guns but really has no idea how they work or mention clip when they are refering to a magazine. This author does a pretty good job with that aspect which makes it much better especially considering the lead character was a survivalist of sorts and ex-marine.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

    The main character, Mike. Quite amusing and just seems to take everything as it comes without sniveling about it.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this. There is a lot of comic relief but it does not detract from the book IMO. If you like zombie books, then this one is a good one to add to the collection.

    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

    These two books so far are fantastic. I have listened to them twice now as they are fairly short and worth a second listen. The journal idea is a nice twist and the zombies are realistic and scary. I like the fact that the writer is active military and actually knows his weapons unlike some other writers who use the word "clip" when they are referring to a gun's magazine. Turns me off the book when the writer uses guns in their story but doesn't know jack all about them. I can't wait for the third installment!

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Story

    The book was good and I would recommend it with only some reserve. Some parts of it are a bit tedious...the war between Kvothe and his arch rival and his relationship with Denna. The second half of the book was better when he left the university for awhile. The writing is well done and the narrator did an excellent job but I did find myself just getting bored sometimes and wishing it would be over. I gave it 4 stars because I did want to know what would happen next.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Lore says: "Book 1 of a great series that is not to be missed!"
    "Great!"
    Overall

    This was a very good listen. I promptly had to get the other two books in the series as I needed to know what would happen next. The book never feels slow and there is plenty of action and mystery behind the story as a whole. The last book made the drive across the country go by quite easily as I was so entranced by the story. You will not be disappointed by this book or the series.
