    Texas? Toast. Battered by five cataclysmic hurricanes in three weeks, the Texas Gulf Coast and half of the Lone Star State is reeling from the worst devastation in history. Thousands are dead or dying - but the worst is only beginning. Amid the wreckage, something unimaginable is happening: a deadly virus has broken out, returning the dead to life - with an insatiable hunger for human flesh. The nightmare begins...

    Would you try another book from Joe McKinney and/or Michael Kramer?

    Already listening to Apocalypse of the Dead.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an ok zombie novel. I kind of nodded off in a couple of spots. It had its great thriller spots and then started going off in to left field for a moment or two.

    I have had quite a few cop friends and you could tell this was written by a police officer. Everyone is out to get the main character or he thought that was the case. Granted during this time of crisis you would only try to trust a select few but to me in an end of times scenerio I would want some one watching my back.

    I'm going to listen to Apocalypse of the Dead (the next novel) and give this author another shot. Hopefully he will earn another star or two from me.

    It's the last weekend of summer break in the small town of Castor, and four teenage friends are about to attend the most popular end-of-summer high-school party in town… with a massive wave of mutated undead about to crash the party. It's The Breakfast Club meets Resident Evil as the teens of Castor fight to stay alive.

    This book had me really surprised when I found out the main character was going to be a 14 year old boy. I’m not into the Harry Potter teen main character books. I have to say I was really surprised. I thought it was well written and deserves a listen. Original story with creepy creatures that were easy to visualize. One of the girl main characters had me rolling my eyes a little. At 14 with the supposed knowledge she had she should be out of high school not getting ready to start. Small annoying part to an overall good book. Very new way to come at this theme. Nice job I will listen to another from this author.

    It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

    You probably either love or hate this author. I can't get enough. I finished this one in 4 days which in my busy schedule is really good. I couldn't stop listening. Read by the same guy that narrated Afraid, Phil Gigante did an excellent job. I could really visualize all the characters especially Lester. If you are a fan of gore/thriller/action then don't pass this one up. Keep putting them out Jack and I'll keep buying.

    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.

    People kept commenting on how this was better than the first book. I disagreed until about a quarter of the way into this one. I was very impressed. It kept my attention the whole time. I'm left wanting the next installment big time. Keep em' coming Mr. Bourne you have earned a long time fan.

    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.

    "Very Surprised."
    Overall

    I didn't know what to expect with the "journal entry" reading of an audio book but I was very surprised. This was very well read and had me really caring for the characters. If you're a fan of the zombie world this is one you can't pass up. Highly recommend.

    Leigh is a beautiful girl, 18 years old, headstrong and rebellious. All she wants from her summer by the lake is a chance to relax and have some fun. And that handsome boy she just met certainly looks like fun. But her summer fling will lead to terror. That night in the old abandoned house will haunt her nightmares for the rest of her life.

    This one was alright but nothing to write home about. 2.5 stars in my opinion. Was predictable at the same time your thinking lifetime movie network here this one comes. It had some high points and then it had some low points that I had to fast forward through. Only worth a listen if you have nothing else waiting in your wish list.

    Five ordinary people must pay the price of survival at the end of the world. A mysterious virus suddenly strikes down millions. Three days later, its victims awake with a single purpose: spread the Infection.

    I wasn't impressed with Tooth and Nail but this one was very good. I couldn't stop listening. I hope that there is a follow-up to this book. The creatures needed a little more time in the book to earn my five stars. I can't wait for another one. Keep improving Mr. DiLouie!

    There is a dark underside to the sunny city of St. Augustine, Florida. An ancient evil is awakened in the Tolomato Cemetery, and is intent on stalking and destroying the citizens of the town. The evil creature, a Shiru, was believed to be a mythical beast from ancient Indian legend. The legend says the Shiru once roamed the earth attempting to mate with the women of the local Indian tribes in an effort to breed, but the Indians recognized the danger and hunted them down, destroying their hideous deformed offspring.

    Still a good story and I liked the characters but wasn't the best I've listened to from this author. If you got a credit to spend its worth the listen.

    Across America, a mysterious pathogen transforms ordinary people into raging killers, psychopaths driven by a terrifying, alien agenda. The human race fights back, yet after every battle the disease responds, adapts, using sophisticated strategies and brilliant ruses to fool its pursuers. The only possible explanation: the epidemic is driven not by evolution but by some malevolent intelligence.

    "Great new story!"
    Overall

    I loved this book. I didn't mind the author reading his material. This one takes you on quite a ride. I would recommend this one. On a side note if you like his work Earthcore, Nocturnal (if you can get past some of the character voices), and Ancestor are must listens.

    The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the world's most inhospitable rainforest - a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing...and came out with both intact.

    Overall

    I'm torn on this one. The action, suspense, overall story, etc... was great. On the other hand some of the little things really bothered me. The rangers seemed poorly equiped. I would think thermal imaging would be needed along with night vision considering the importance of the mission. The tribesman that followed the rangers really hated them but didn't mind the "bad guys" that were behind them. Seemed like the other team was able to waltz in while the rangers were being taken out. Just a few things that bothered me a little but overall a good listen. Will listen to this author again.
