    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 water coming out of your tap is four billion years old and might have been slurped by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. We will always have exactly as much water on Earth as we have ever had. Water cannot be destroyed, and it can always be made clean enough for drinking again. In fact, water can be made so clean that it actually becomes toxic. As Charles Fishman brings vibrantly to life in this delightful narrative excursion, water runs our world in a host of awe-inspiring ways, which is both the promise and the peril of our unexplored connections to it.

    I thought this book was along the lines of Salt, or Alchemy of Air, however, after 45mins, I just couldn't stand listening any longer.

    Story

    I've listened to this for a week, and decided to return it. The author comes across as type A personality, I don't find the book relaxing.

    The book feels more like a "pump you up sales meeting", then a method to learn to relax and teach yourself how to fall asleep.

    Kasey and the gang have come full circle through the crumbling world. Working for the National Guard, they realize old friends and fellow survivors are disappearing. When the missing start to reappear as walking corpses, the group sets out on another journey to discover the truth. Their answers wait in the West Virginia Command Center. Along the way, Kasey’s group encounters a new breed of horror; humanity twisted into something not quite alive, but not quite dead. When the secret of the Command Center is unearthed, an old enemy threatens to rip Kasey’s world inside out.

    Story

    This is one of the few series I restarted from book 1 when I purchased book 3; I wanted the story to be fresh in my mind, and It was well worth the time.

    I've listen to almost every Zombie book out there, Dulaney isn't pushing some worn out, re-hashed story; this book was full of surprises, when you think the story was ending, Dulaney has more for you. If there's a 4th book, I'll buy it.

    Brandt Evans is floundering. Leadership of their dysfunctional group wasn’t something he asked for or wanted. Their problems are numerous: Remy Angellette is grief-stricken and suicidal, Gray Carter is distant and reclusive, and Cade Alton is near death. And things only get worse.

    Story

    I guess this is the last book in the series, seems like they just gave up on writing a real story. Maybe this is what happens when you have to write three books covering the same group of people.

    If there is a book 4, I wont bother to read it.

    Story

    Mark Tufo is a very good writer, his stories are interesting, and I've enjoyed them, however, since he feels the need to use the same names in all of his books, covering totally different plot lines, it's become hard to keep the stories apart when listening to them.

    Micheal Talbert is the main character in his stories covering Zombies, Aliens, and everything else he seems to feel the urge to write. Come on Mark, use a different character for each story series.

    Ugh...

    The world has turned. Plague-infected, flesh-eating zombies now infest the earth. Black ops agent Chad Halverson of the CIA's top secret National Clandestine Service and a motley band of survivors must do everything they can to survive one more day, even as they try to find out what caused the pandemic.

    Story

    The publishers description made me think this was going to be interesting, however, less then an hour into the book I'd had enough.

    I disliked this book so much, I didn't waste the brain power to remember the names.

    A CIA agent, wouldn't have spent 10 minutes, trying to talk to the dingbat woman he runs into in the first few minutes. How you can be so stupid, to think zombies running around and killing everyone, are just "rioters", and still, have survived the first few days of an outbreak, is beyond me; no, this wasn't Sean of the dead, or even an attempt to be funny, its just poor writing and a bad plot.

    The conversations where painful, no flow, no attempt to even try to talk, it was like listening to a couple of shy 5th graders, forced to sit next to each other on the school bus.

    The first book in an action–packed new SF adventure series. Vulcan is a factory planet, centuries old, Company run, ugly as sin, and unfeeling as death. Vulcan breeds just two types of native: complacent or tough. Sten is tough. When his family is killed in a mysterious accident, Sten rebels, harassing the Company from the metal world’s endless maze-like warrens. He could end up just another burnt–out Delinquent. But people like Sten never give up.

    I'd never heard of the Sten series, and now I'm hooked. On the same level as David Drake, if you like War Sci-Fi, with the technical details to make it real, these guys are for you.

  • Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

    A largely untold facet of the war on terror is the widespread outsourcing of military tasks to private mercenary companies. Accountable neither to the citizenry nor to standard military legal codes, these largely unregulated corporate armies are being entrusted with ever-greater responsibilities on behalf of the nation.

    Stanley says: "Truly frightening"
    "Very poorly writen"

    Story

    Rather then give a history, Scahill spends most of his time trying to bash the Right and make it look like they are behind everything.

    It could have been a good book, if the facts where just presented.

    The audio quality is poor, and ad in Weiner's poor reading, and you've got a loser of a book.

    Tufo is finally killing off Michael Talbot, however, he did it in such a slow manner, it put me to sleep. Maybe Tufo's next book will be better.

    Indian Hill is about an ordinary boy who grows up in relatively normal times but who finds himself thrust into an extraordinary position. Growing up in suburban Boston, Michael enjoys the trials and tribulations that all adolescents go through, from the seemingly tyrannical mother, to girl problems, to run-ins with the law. From there he escapes to college out in Colorado with his best friend, Paul, where they begin to forge new relationships with those around them. It is one girl in particular that has caught Michael's eye, and he alternately pines for her and laments ever meeting her.

    Mark says: "Not anywhere near as good as the zombie series"
    "I didn't know how I'd like Tofo's next series"

    I think Tufo's becoming one of my favorite writers.

    I was very happy with this series, I ended up listen to all three books this weekend.
