    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.

    Overall

    I do appreciate the conservative views and interesting twists of political insight, but a little bit too much theoretical science and too little action. Because it's Johnny Ringo, I gave it 3 stars. I guess I was spoiled by the Prince Roger and Aldenata series. The main character was pretty savvy, but I couldn’t get over the fact that the aliens acted too human. I’ll pass on book 2 unless there is a serious drought in good sci-fi.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    "New Narrator Not Bad"
    Overall

    This is the first time I've experienced a new narrator in a series of books that actually did a very good job replacing a beloved reader. You can tell that he listened to Marster's narrations and he actually pulled it off. Yes, it does take a few hours to get used the Harry's new voice but after a while you realize Glover got the tone right and this is just another great installment of the Dresden files.

    To all you haters: Marsters bailed on us so quit you're crying. I miss him too and I will welcome him back for any future books. But if pulls this crap again, then I will be just as happy with Glover.

    The race is on to claim the area between the Ohio River and Tennessee. What's left of the resistance is hiding out in the tangle of central Kentucky hills - leaving the powerful, well-organized Kurian vampires the opportunity to fill the void. Major David Valentine knows there's only one way for them to find help before the Kurians settle in: a desperate dash by hijacked rail, followed by a harrowing river journey. Valentine unites friends old and new in the effort - but the Kurian Order won't easily yield.

    Overall

    Halfway through and I just can't finish it. Even after listening to the first 8 books, I find myself not caring about what happens. I'm an avid audiobook listener (80+hours per month) and this one just can't keep my attention. Audiobooks are an investment of my time, not to mention a credit, and this one just doesn't cut it.

    The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind has ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rate. Death. But it doesn't end there. The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic.

    "Cliche and simple minded"
    Overall

    Way too cliche and simple. Gets 3 stars by default because it's zombies. If you get rid of the f-bombs, this book would be a great intro book for any youngster getting into the genre. The military mentality was on par with any of the non-Romero Living Dead movies.

    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.

    "Painfully Boring"
    Overall

    What a disappointment! As a serious supernatural post-apocalyptic fan, the premise of this book was kind of exciting. C’mon Stephen King! Why would you throw your name at this?!

    Honestly, this was completely boring. Action was lame and minimal suspense. The villian(s) were not compelling in any way. Out of the 37 hours I tolerated this, there was probably 6 hours that I found interesting. Avoid The Passage if you liked the following supernatural post-apocalyptic books: I am Legend, World War Z, Day by Day, Salem’s Lot, The Warded Man or the Vampire Earth series.
