    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!

    A phenomenon known as crustal displacement shifts the Earth's crust, repositioning continents and causing countless deaths. In the wake of the global catastrophe, the world struggles to take care of its displaced billions. But Antarctica, freshly thawed and blooming, has emerged as a new hope. Rather than wage a world war no nation can endure, the leading nations devise a competition, a race to the center of Antarctica, with the three victors dividing the continent.

    Would you listen to Antarktos Rising again? Why?

    Not really, but only because it isn't that kind of book, but man it was still good the first time!


    What other book might you compare Antarktos Rising to and why?

    Some of the Lincoln Child books have a similar style.


    Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this was my first one, but won't be the last.


    Who was the most memorable character of Antarktos Rising and why?

    Mirander.

    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world. But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels, NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help.

    G. House Sr. says: "Whiplash from the emotional rollercaster"

    Would you try another book from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child and/or Rene Auberjonois?

    Yeah for sure as the Pendergast series is a great one and Rene does the perfect voice for him


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    To be honest I didn't like it but thats because I saw it coming from about half way.


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

    Rene was really good again, but a couple of times he kept the wrong voice for a character.


    Was Two Graves worth the listening time?

    Yes as it was a further trip into the world of A.L.Pengdergast, but I think its one of the weakest in the series.

    Jon Hudson, lead investigator for the Department of Homeland Security's Fusion Center-P, thinks his job is a joke. While other Fusion Centers focus on thwarting terrorist activity, Hudson's division is tasked with handling paranormal threats to national security, of which there have been zero during his years at the DHS. When yet another Sasquatch sighting leads to a research facility in the backwoods of Maine, disguised as an abandoned Nike missile site, Hudson's job becomes deadly serious.

    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Nocturnal: A Novel to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print edition but for a first time Singler novel I thought the audio one was great!


    What other book might you compare Nocturnal: A Novel to and why?

    The Passage by Justin Cronin. Just for the amount of depth the book goes into.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The finale.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Blue Balls :)

    One of the best Dresden Files books in the series. Liked how it brings back so many characters from previous books and intertwines them in ways I didn't see coming.

    He nailed Dresden again!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
