    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.

    Would you listen to Hissers again? Why?

    Normally I don't listen or read books again after I've read them, but I would definitely without a doubt recommend this story!


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I enjoyed the best is that the story revolves around four kids trying to survive in this now new zombie


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Perhaps when the amalgamation of bodies finally takes Nicole at the end - that for some reason is my most memorable scene.


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

    The part where the kids realize each fault: one's a cutter, one's fat, one's shallow, etc.

    When linguist Andrew Dennison is yanked from his bed by the Secret Service and taken to a top secret facility in the desert, he has no idea he’s been brought there to translate the words of an ancient demon. He joins pretty but cold veterinarian Sun Jones, eccentric molecular biologist Dr. Frank Belgium, and a hodge-podge of religious, military, and science personnel to try and figure out if the creature is, indeed, Satan. But things quickly go bad, and very soon Andy isn’t just fighting for his life, but the lives of everyone on earth.

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

    Not sure - I've only listened to the audio version - but it definitely made some of the sounds and ambiance stand out.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself was terrific. J.A. Konrath I wonder must be a freaking genius! This book is labeled as a techno-thriller. Not sure exactly what that is per se, but the level of information about DNA strands and nuclear fusion, etc. literally was impressive. Blew me away. No pun intended.


    What about Luke Daniels???s performance did you like?

    Bub's voice scared the crap out of me.


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

    80 years ago it was found buried nearly 200 feet below the Mayan soil deeply submersed inset a deep coma...

    ...Until today.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a really great story. Some of the twists were just so impressive that I had no idea what I was in for. The ending I was perhaps a little disappointed with. I would have liked to have had more closer, but still that did not detract much from anything. The character of
