    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, along with the men and women of the U.S.S. Walker, are once again at war. Having sided with the peaceful Lemurians against the savage, reptilian Grik, they now find themselves scrambling to prepare for the attack that is sure to come, searching for resources to support their forces - even as they look for allies to join their struggle.

    A few slow spots here and there, but that is to be expected. I really am enjoying this series.



    FYI, people complaining about AUDIO books prices when comparing them to a paper back book. Think for a second. The audio book must be produced, scripted to a point, and a GOOD actor hired to read the book and act out all parts. Don't whine about an audio books price

    The wreckage of the starship Odyssey, once Earth's greatest guardian, lies strewn across New York City. Abandoned by all but its captain, Odyssey's sacrifice covered the withdrawal of countless troops as the Drasin assault ravaged the planet. When Captain Eric Weston finally emerges from the rubble, impossibly alive thanks to the mysterious "Gaia", he knows with the Drasin it's kill or be killed.

    Eric Riordan was once a wealthy man leading a comfortable, easy life. Until one day Gabriel, his oldest friend, Marine Corps veteran, and a former mercenary, told him how the world was going to end. He did his best to prepare. He thought he was ready for anything. He was wrong. As the dead rise up to devour the living, one man finds himself struggling to survive in the ruins of a shattered world. Alone, isolated, and facing starvation, his only chance is to flee to the Appalachians and join forces with Gabriel.

    Story

    I am not done with this book, but i felt the need to put out some much needed information that i seemed to have missed in others reviews. The narrator is terrible. He cant do female voices well, at all. I dont expect perfection when a narrator is doing a womans voice, but this guy makes them sound like Jim Carrey doing Vera Di Milo on In Living Color. Actually, half the men get that same narration as well.
    The story is decent, and i eventually can focus on that. But man, if the narrator was good i know id really enjoy this book.

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to. In the Maze, life was easy... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago. Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

    Now the people know that the dragon minions of Takhisis, Queen of Dragons, have returned. The people of all nations prepare to fight to save their homes, their lives, and their freedom. But the races have long been divided by hatred and prejudice. Elven warriors and human knights fight among themselves. It seems the battle has been lost before it begins. The companions are separated, torn apart by war. A full season will pass before they meet again - if they meet again.

    Star Force listeners will like this incite into the past of a character we wanted to know a little more about. To say anything else would ruin the plot. Listen,its free!

    Beyond the din and dancing lights of the Las Vegas strip, a young woman has mysteriously gone missing. All the facts point to something sinister - even paranormal. Quentin Draith, supernatural crime investigator, is hired to assist. However, the deeper Draith digs, the more otherworldly his assignment gets. Assassins, human and otherwise, put a target on Draith’s head and a ravenous alien beast starts rampaging through the city. The clues point Draith to Sin City’s infamous “Bone Triangle,” a neighborhood marked for its dark happenings and disappearances.

    For me,this second book really went a little darker than the first. We are finally getting some incite into the "objects" and other character details we all wondered about.


    My only complaint......DON'T CHANGE NARRATORS! Dont get me wrong,the new narrator did a fine job. But the one voice i just got sick of hearing was McKesson(sp?). He now sounds like he is always talking with a mouth full of peanut butter.


    New narrator or not,this book was awesome and i cant wait for the next.

    I gave the second book in this series a mediocre grade,about a B-, C+. This third installment gets an A++. I loved it. Im not going to be a reviewer that goes into endless details that no one needs to know. But if you read the first two books in this series,this latest book will excite you. Set your dvr to record anything you may want to watch. I finished this book in less than a week. I listened to it any chance i got and at the end of a long day i put it on instead of the mindless garbage on television. This book even made my dog walk,longer and farther because i got so into the story. I cant wait for book 4.

    When a huge alien spacecraft crashes on the island of Cuba, the world scrambles to investigate. Secretive organizations have waited for generations for this opportunity, and they do not hesitate to send in recovery teams. Cooperation between nations breaks down as every government wants the newly discovered technology for themselves. Naturally, the Cubans have beaten everyone else, and the island is beginning to change. Aircraft flying reconnaissance are swatted from the skies.

    I feel like I listened to half of a book by the time i was done. I want answers and i didn't get them. Aliens,secret government agents stealing the aliens technology, craziness.

    Dont get me wrong,this was a very entertaining listen,but it left me wanting more. It felt like half of a thought almost at times. That will not stop me from getting the next in the series.
