    Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages - not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color.

    The classic love story with a new spin...yawn. The small things about this story were interesting, but the overall premise I find to be rather over done.

    The war that has torn the human race apart is finally nearing its end. With most towns and cities now uninhabitable, and with the country in the grip of a savage nuclear winter, both Hater and Unchanged struggle to survive.

    Story

    Not nearly as good as the first two books in the trilogy. I felt like it was an anti-climatic ending and disappointed for having sat through the book and nothing awesome ever really happened. There was also a lot of really repetitive dialog. Really every conversation in the book could be boiled down to Danny whining that he just wants to go off in to a corner and die, and someone else saying they want him to go do something for them. Seriously, this book was set in a post apocalyptic world so I knew it would be depressing, but damn talk about annoying and abysmal. Very disappointed.

    There's a book inside you, just begging to be written. But if you're like most people, the task of writing it gets pushed aside day by day until the weeks become years. Speaker and author Liv Montgomery has published more than 80 book and audio titles in less than two years. Learn from a high-output author with dozens of published works the techniques for writing at super speed, and you too can draft your book in a single day!

    Story

    The really weird and ultra annoying introduction almost made me stop listening, but if you can fast forward through that and get to the actual speech, Liv actually does give out a few gems of helpful advice. The random sound effects thrown in are cheesy and a big turn off. Listen when you're in a good mood and feeling forgiving.

    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.

    The Overlords appeared suddenly over every city - intellectually, technologically, and militarily superior to humankind. Benevolent, they made few demands: unify earth, eliminate poverty, and end war. With little rebellion, humankind agreed, and a golden age began.

    Even though this book was written in the 50's I believe it is still very believable and relevant. The narrator did a good job and I was able to be fully absorbed in the story. Good listen and nice story. I'd recommend it.

    Conner's parents want to be rid of him because he's a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Lev's unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his family's strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance.

    Overall

    Wow. I wasn't expecting such an amazing story. I was hooked by the premise and then slowly reeled in as the story unfolded. If a book can evoke an emotional response from me, it is rare and genuine. The part with Rolland in the chop shop did just that. The detail was powerful. The whole scene was riveting and gut wrenching. I felt like it was real. After finishing the book, I felt like the whole story was completely plausible and could be a reality we face in the not so distant future. I thought about the story intently for days after I read it. It's very relevant to now also in that this book brings up the Pro-Life and Pro-Choice debate which is active and heated. This book definitely made me think about all the angles in a new light and questions for the next book in the series which I hope will be released soon! It was a joy to read this book and I would recommend it highly.

    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.

    Overall

    The narrator did a good job with voicing different characters, did not distract from the story but the story itself was long (which is fine) but the ending was so abrupt it was a disappointment for me. If you're going to write a long book why end it with little to no resolution???
