    Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is out of his element, working onboard the Magellan, a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But his work is interrupted when, surrounded by 30 miles of refuse, the ship and its high-tech systems are plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm. When the storm fades and the sun rises, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island...and no one knows how they got there.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Island 731 to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Island 731?

    The premise was quite good, esp once they get to the island.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Good overall but there were times where the narrater gets stuck on a character voice and continues this into another character so made it hard to follow some dialogue.

    Death-row prisoners with nightmare pasts and no future…. Until they were selected for a secret experiment….to create something more than human.

    Now they are the future and humanity's worst nightmare has begun. The Twelve is the epic sequel to The Passage. Read by Scott Brick.

    Marcelle says: "'Viral' post-apocalyptic adventure #2."
    "A worthy follow up to The Passage"

    What made the experience of listening to The Twelve the most enjoyable?

    Scott Brick brings life to each of the characters so you can just lose yourself in them and the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great follow on from the 1st book.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's Mr Audiobook. No other narrarter seems to bring the depth of narration to books that he does.

    Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old, and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world. She is.... Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row.... He's wrong. FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming.... It is.

    What did you love best about The Passage?

    All of it!! Mainly though the believability of all the characters and the story that follows each of them. You really feel invested in each of them.


    What other book might you compare The Passage to and why?

    Probably "The Stand" but only because thats another end of the world epic.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Its Scott Brick. Nothing more to say!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The first chapter really got to me. I won't spoil it but as a grown man it was the closet I've come to crying at the first part of any book.


    Any additional comments?

    Hands down one of the best books I have ever read.

    If you could sum up Conquest in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant, conclusive, funny!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Conquest?

    Just Michael Talbot as a whole and especially his interactions with D!


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

    Still love Michael Talbot the best as got to know the character as voiced by Sean in Zombie Fallout. That and D was great!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah couldn't get through it quick enough.


    Any additional comments?

    I picked up the Indian Hill books after listening to Zombie Fallout which I loved! Have to say though, Indian Hill could actually be better than ZF!
