I heart scifi, and have become addicted to listening instead of reading, or even watching tv.

    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I absolutely love Khristine Hvam. The last few books I have listened to have been by her, coincidentally. Usually I avoid doing that because you don't want to think of two books with the same sounding characters... Distracting. But not with her. I am amazed by that. And I've enjoyed her readings so much I consider books read by her higher because she always narrates good books. Jay was great also. That sounds so trite after my praise for Hvam. But I really did like him a lot. W


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Eh, I don't know about a particular moment. I just really enjoyed the book and definitely recommend it. Worth the credit.


    Any additional comments?

    Im a huge scifi urban fantasy fan, don't usually care one way or another for zombies. But this was done well, not just apocalyptic crap. Overall good book.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....
