I spend about 2 1/2 hrs a day commuting to work, so I have a good amount of Audible time. I love sci-fi, post apocalypse, and zombie books.

    A walled city surrounded by lush land, protected by high mountain summits, and fortified by a massive gate to secure the only pass into the valley, The Bastion remained humanity's last hope against the fearsome undead creatures known as the Inferi Scourge. On one fateful day, the valley gate failed and the Inferi Scourge overran and destroyed the human settlements outside the walls, trapping the remaining survivors inside the city. Now, decades later, the last remaining humans are struggling to survive....

    The story is really interesting. I really loved it!!! Completely worth it and I would read another book from this author. My only negitive is the narrator took some getting used to. I think maybe she was forcing the american accent...maybe shes Canadian or Brittish? Oh one other thing...they never say where the city is located. AWESOME mix of future sci-fi and zombie!!!!!!

    When aliens trundled a gate to other worlds into the solar system, the world reacted with awe, hope and fear. But the first aliens to come through, the Glatun, were peaceful traders and the world breathed a sigh of relief.

    This is really an enjoyable story...and the best part is that the next books are the best friggin space battles ever!!! Yes there is some right wing comments (as with all of Ringo's works), but I can tell you as a Democrat (but also retired military), its not too much to irritate even a liberal from California. lol Buy this book!!!!! If you don't like the series I will donate credits back to you!! ...not really, but it is that good! The only bad part is that there are only 3 books. ENJOY!!!!!!

    The United States of North America is now engaged in a civil war with the Earth Confederation, which wants to yield to the demands of the alien Sh'daar, limit human technology, and become a part of the Sh'daar Galactic Collective. USNA President Koenig believes that surrendering to the Sh'daar will ultimately doom humankind. But when highly advanced, seemingly godlike aliens appear through an artificial wormhole in the Omega Centauri Cluster 16,000 light years from Earth, President Koenig is faced with a tremendous choice.

    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.

    From the Audie-nominated narrator of The Martian. In eleven years' time, a million members of an alien race will arrive at Earth. Years before they enter orbit, their approach will be announced by the flare of a thousand flames in the sky, their ships' huge engines burning hard to slow them from the vast speeds needed to cross interstellar space. These foreboding lights will shine in our night sky like new stars, getting ever brighter until they outshine even the sun, casting ominous shadows and banishing the night until they suddenly blink out.

    I had randomly saw the title on one of the audible emails and after seeing the summary, bought and started the book. Fantastic!!!! I have over 100 titles in my audible library and except for the 9/11 commission report, all the titles are military sci fi or zombie. This has risen to my top 10 list along with my John Ringo books. Really interesting take on an invasion book. FYI, it did take me about 30-40 min to get used to the narrator but love him now. Enjoy!!!

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Kyle Riggs is in for a rough ride. In Annihilation, the seventh book of the Star Force Series, nothing goes as planned. The three fledgling human colonies in the Eden System are beginning to take hold, but the forces threatening to root them out are many. The Crustaceans are calling for help, despite the fact they are the sworn enemies of Star Force. Are they potential allies, or vicious tricksters? And why are the oceans of their world heating up?

    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong I enjoy the series. It's just that the writing is getting on my nerves after so many books. Example, without any details, an event occurs, the characters talk about the event and then 5 min later the same information is presented and the main character is like OMG I never saw this coming!!!! The main character is becoming more irritating but this may be me. Being retired military it frustrates me when he (Kyle) does things that are unprofessional and stupid. Overall I liked it but am really looking forward to the next installment...also is it me or is it irritating that Kyle has been saying things like "we've been doing this for years..." He has been saying this since book 1!!! It's not like its been 10-15 yrs or something!! Ok happy that's off my chest. Lol

    Many millennia ago, the human race was enslaved by the An - a fearsome alien people whose cruel empire once spanned the galaxies, until they were defeated and consigned to oblivion. But a research mission to the planet Ishtar has made a terrifying - and fatal - discovery: The Ahanu, ancestors of the former masters, live on, far from the reach of Earth - born weapons and technology ... and tens of thousands of captive human souls still bow to their iron will.

    The narrator, mr Drummond, sounds like a crappy capt Kirk imposter. I mean, sure there are pronunciation issues like another review stated...but seriously who has not heard of friggin Camp Lejeune!!! (though in his defense wikipedia does list "lajurn" as a second way to say it) But even aside with the most common military jargon being screwed up, his voice is just horrible. The way his voice trails off at the end of sentences, not to mention the absolute worst character voices, really destroyed this book. I will be reading the other two books.

    As for the book, if you have made it this far you are like me and just want to see what happens. Reading this series after Star Carrier is a complete let down!

    *****in summary...Drummond is the worst book narrator I have ever heard!!!*****

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    What did you love best about The Passage?

    The characters were all so well developed and the story just sucks you in.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael is my favorite character. His technical knowledge and curiosity in a world of horse and carts, mixed with the burden of the understanding what this knowledge tells him.I very much enjoyed watching this character develop as events unfold.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The main narrator (there are a couple others that thoughtfully sprinkled throughout the reading), has a great voice. His tones and inflections are perfect and pulled me deeper into the story.


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

    As a 20 year military guy, I loved the part when we get the background on


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, similar to

    For 100 years after a nuclear holocaust annihilated civilization, the Family has eked out a meager existence in the wilds of what used to be Minnesota. But something is going wrong in the Home. People aren't living as long as they used to. Mutations are becoming more common. To ensure their survival, there's only one thing the Family can do: venture outside the compound walls for help. Three of their best warriors are chosen for the task – Blade, Hickok and Geronimo.

    see my review of the first novel...but overall worth knowing what happens to the "Family" 100 years later.
