    They were known as the Killing Times, when serial murder reached epidemic proportions.... A woman named Jaguar tries to rehabilitate these killers by establishing a telepathic link with them and divulging their worst fears. But now she's about to face the most challenging subject of her career: the ultimate assassin, a dangerously disturbed woman who will teach Jaguar the true meaning of fear.

    For forty years, Colony 3245.12 has been Ofelia’s home. On this planet far away in space and time from the world of her youth, she has lived and loved, weathered the death of her husband, raised her one surviving child, lovingly tended her garden, and grown placidly old. And it is here that she fully expects to finish out her days - until the shifting corporate fortunes of the Sims Bancorp Company dictates that Colony 3245.12 is to be disbanded, its residents shipped off, deep in cryo-sleep, to somewhere new and strange and not of their choosing.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Remnant Population the most enjoyable?

    Unusual story, endearing characters that I just wanted to be with. As soon as I finished it, I played it again and was equally as charmed and delighted by the second hearing as the first.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The babies, I wanted to cuddle them too. Actually I loved all the characters even the son and daughter-in-law and especially the 70 year old lady who made me look at my grandma in a very different way.


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

    She was just great. Trying to pronounce those alien words when you are reading them can be frustrating but hearing them doesn't interupt the story flow and Ms Hart does a great job of that. Her voice is soft and a little smokey and not overly dramatic. For this story she was a great pleasure to listen to.


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

    Really extreme for me. Listened twice in a row, the first time non stop and I'm writing this review without being asked to by Audible :) Never done that before.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms Elizabeth Moon has written a wonderful book, wish I had discovered it before. Give yourself a great treat and listen to this lovely story that will stay with you for a long time.

    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    I listened to Lucifer's Hammer and One Second After, then Alas Babylon. Very similar stories, all scary, all wonderful stories, all brilliantly performed. In all three people end up becoming cannibals *shudder*. All three scenarios could actually happen, at times the action seems all too real, the things people would have to do to survive are things I never thought about before. Just loved these audios and learnt a lot.

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

    Scary as hell


    What did you like best about this story?

    The suspense builds and builds, takes your breath away at times


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Lane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He's got a great voice for the creepy bits


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

    Sure was, and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    I have all of Dean Koontz books, now I'm collecting the audios for my Kindle. The audios give you another dimension to the already fabulous story. I live in Australia so not all of his titles are available to me. Please please please make other titles available, especially 'Watchers'.
