    Story

    Awesome series. There were a few zombie twists/scenes that were unexpected and nothing was really cliche. Characters were believable. I swear I'm still laughing at the exchange between Sara & her stoner boyfriend in the back of the pickup truck. "Dude you totally farted and it was girl fart" I'm telling you Fred Berman could be on a stage somewhere. He's good!

    I mean I swear I listen to alot of books and this is the first one where the material, the scene setup & the presenter made me laugh outloud!

    I actually liked both of the books in the series and was pleasantly surprised by that. I LOVE the way the authors set up a chapter so you know what's going to happen but you do NOT know the outcome. Talk about suspense! LOVE it!!!

    If you're a walking dead, zombie, apocalypse or syfy fan you HAVE to get these books. I just wish there were more!

    Matt Kearns and the remnants of the scientific team return to a ravaged America. Modern medicine has failed to halt the spread of the flesh-consuming parasite, and humans have been forced to hide, even from one another. The infected roam the cities and suburbs of a ruined nation. But the devastating effects on human physiology are only the beginning. Something has been let loose, something that the team were not prepared for - human nature itself.

    Story

    The scientists made it out of the lost world but the mite outbreak back in the real world has escalated. Militia, crazy zealots and people with their skin falling off are abundant. I had to give up after chapter three. The last straw.....They are trying to get the possible CURE back to the CDC in an armored truck with a flame thrower on top. They've been attacked by zealots & one scientist & one army guy killed. The leader is stalking them. So what do they do? See a little girl with boils on her in the middle of the street holding a dead cat. When her boils burst aka bloom the mite eggs will be thrown in the air for blocks, get in your lungs and eat you from the inside out. NO cure. Can't help the girl. She will either bloom (the boils are close to blooming) or the mob that's chasing her will kill her and them. What do they do? Stop! If she blooms in their "tank" they'll die instantly but that's ok. Carla, the CDC scientist that could save the world decides they have to bring this ticking time bomb into the tank with them. Head military guy argues against it & the crazy mob shoots him. One little girl who is contagious and about to die/kill everyone for blocks is far more important than getting the cure to save millions to the CDC. Dumb Dumb Dumb. Would never happen. Kill blooms, Carla the scientist who insisted on stopping and CDC wiz kid who can save the world is holding her shoulders & now infected. Head military guys, only one left, is dead, tank on fire and now they're on foot. Girl is dead. Audio turned off ............

    The narrator has weird pronunciations that are driving me insane. Debris is Deb-ri and figure is fig-ur - those are the worse and abundant throughout

    Books one & two had flaws but was a descent listen. I can't continue with book #3. Characters would simply NOT act like that & good grief someone tell this narrator how to pronounce his words.

    In this creepy horror novel, Neal Becker is convinced that his 5 month old baby daughter can talk. But that's impossible...isn't it? Except that Neal didn't really want to get married in the first place - the pregnancy was the result of a one-night stand, and he preferred an abortion. Now, Baby Natasha knows it, and she's out to get him! Or so Neal believes...join the two in a terrifying battle for survival that will make your blood run cold.

    Story

    I walked by my daughter's baby doll & almost had a heart attack when it said "mama". That's how creepy this book is! It's been awhile since a book gave me the "heebie jeebies" but baby talk is truly one of those books that keeps you up at night.

    MINOR spoiler...................
    Neal finds himself in an unhappy marriage, in a minimum wage delivery job (dropped out of college before becoming a chemist then medical school because a one night stand ended in a pregnancy) and a very young father to Natasha. Natasha is he and Annie's 5 month old daughter. All is not what it appears when he thinks he hears Natasha, in an evil voice, talking to him. Think Chucky but instead of a doll its a baby. TOTALLY creepy. If your Aunt Mary has a room full of lifelike dolls that you have to help her change a light bulb in .....do NOT read this book lol.

    The author did a good job with the story & with the characters. All were multi dimensional and not boring. In a story like this it is easy to just pile catastrophe and bad luck so high on the character that the reader becomes smothered as well and frankly loses interest. There's just enough to make it interesting without bogging down the story and making us think "there is just no way someone has THAT much bad luck. There are hints as to who or what baby Natasha is but I would love to see another book with another unsuspecting family and a tad more back story

    I loved it and will definitely keep my eyes out for more from this author. Spend the credit you won't be disappointed!

    The year is 2033. The world has been reduced to rubble. Humanity is nearly extinct and the half-destroyed cities have become uninhabitable through radiation. Beyond their boundaries, they say, lie endless burned-out deserts and the remains of splintered forests. Survivors still remember the past greatness of humankind, but the last remains of civilisation have already become a distant memory. Man has handed over stewardship of the earth to new life-forms. A few score thousand survivors live on, not knowing whether they are the only ones left on Earth....

    Mike is back. The battle with Eliza is past. Now Mike must strike out once again in a desperate race against time as his son and best friend are succumbing to the zombie virus within them. What he does not know is that an old foe hasrisen up and a more insidious threat has emerged to not just the Talbots but all of humanity.

    Story

    OMG OMG OMG. Best one yet! I really think I like the Elizaless story much better. Mike & Family set out looking for Dr. Baker thinking he can cure BT & Mike's son. Both had been infected but not yet turned. BUT not only does the Talbot caravan provide awesome entertainment - Tufo gives us the back story of Mrs. D. and it is a doozy! Better yet...........TRIPP is back! Gotta love the stoner with a big personality. It seems Mike & Company aren't the only ones looking for Dr. Baker. A military group with connections to Mrs. D. is also interested in the Doc. Everyone ends up in the same place and we learn more about what started this whole zombie apocalypse.

    Mike & the group start to ponder on whether or not GOD is steering the group together & somewhere since there are allot of events that they had been chalking up to coincidences or fate that now seem outrageously unlikely. I don't mind the religious aspect of 7 at all but I hope, are you listening TUFO?, the author doesn't turn this whole series into a Lost finale and the Talbot party is in purgatory. That would not fly with us loyal fans. GOD helping out, fine, Mike waking up in the shower and this is all a bad dream, Mike being in a psych ward & slowly coming out of his stupor and purgatory/hell would be an insult to those of us who love this series!!!! I don't know if that's where he is going but I hope not. The book kind of ends abruptly but I don't have a problem with it at all. It simply means there's a book 8!!!

    Zombie Fallout 7 is the best yet! WOW

    Emily Baxter’s dream life turns into a waking nightmare the day the red rain falls. Like a biblical plague, the scarlet downpour spreads a hideous virus that demolishes life in New York City, the nation, and the world. Suddenly the last soul in an annihilated metropolis - and possibly on Earth - the onetime newspaper reporter must learn to scavenge, survive...and plan for a future of utter solitude. Then, from far-flung Alaska, another living voice reaches out, and Emily grasps at her only glimmer of hope. But she may be even less alone than she thinks.

    Story

    Our hero, Emily, was likable yet flawed (really ride a bike from NY to Alaska instead of learning to drive quickly? puleez). I love a story that has "monsters" (monsters & zombies - Christmas Day) and I liked how these were portrayed. A nice premise and I think book two will be even better than the first. There were a few cliches that I could have lived without but for the most part interesting and entertaining.

    Red rain begins falling & people die. Aliens? Terrorists? Monsters appear that may or may not be Aliens but definitely scary. Emily doesn't see a single soul but is lucky enough to find a well trained and protected malamute. They journey north towards Jacob & his group of scientist hoping the cold will stave off the effects of the "red rain". Along the way she meets a surviving family and they join her on her trek. Emily runs into lots of problems along the way but triumphs!

    looking forward to book 2.

He had no idea if anyone would care, or take the time, to read his daily blog entries about his late night observations. But what started as an open monologue of his day-to-day life became a running journal of the firsthand account detailing the rising of the dead and the downfall and degradation of mankind...

    The horde is coming. Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade's love.

    OMG I absolutely loved this last (sadly) chapter in Deuce's adventure. The story picked up with just as much action as it left off with. I love how the author has invented the "freaks" (humans mutated from biological weapons, testing and evolution). Deuce & Fade are a great believable couple. I'm in my 40's and I enjoyed this"young adult" couple.

    Ok, Salvation is surrounded & attacked, Deuce creates her own army/resistance, there are unexpected allies and finally Deuce has a family and a real home. She and Fade and her new found family live happily ever after (some are not so lucky) in a place they can finally call home...........and safe!

    Get it you won't regret it. I really hate that the series has ended. .

    New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint has received glowing critical praise for his Ring of Fire alternate history series. In this first installment, a West Virginia town is transported from the year 2000 to 1631 Germany at the height of the Thirty Years’ War. Thrust into conflict, the town residents must also contend with moral issues such as who should be considered a citizen.

    Story

    I'll admit, I only purchased this because it was the deal of the day. Otherwise it would have sat in my wish list. Man am I glad I did! It's nice to see Appalachian (I grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky) people portrayed in a positive light. The author did a great job - though no one I grew up spoke so "proper" lol.The narrator needed to give it a bit more hillbilly twang. I won't hold it against him since I love Guidall. What a great premise. Not to give too much away..............a small community in West Virginia is suddenly uprooted and thrown into Germany in the 1600's. The author set it up cleverly to get a mixture of people into the town. The hero of the story is attending his sister's wedding along with several out of town guests and pretty much the rest of the town. History is changed. I am off to purchase the other books in the series right now! Great listen. LOVED it!!!

    Story

    I'm either the only person who hated this story or the only horror/fantasy fan that purchased it! I liked The Terror and the title and description is hinting towards a "creature" making an appearance so I gave it a try. why oh why did I give it a try. If you are a climber or have an interest in it then definitely you'd like this book. If you're a horror/supernatural/fantasy fan don't waste you're time. He just goes on and on and on and on with details. If he wrote a description of how to boil an egg it would go like this.......walk with one foot in front of the other. Cautiously so you do not fall. Concentrate on this task and do not get distracted. If you hear a noise for example, perhaps a doorbell it is best to wait until you've reached your destination to investigate the sound. You then lift your right hand, unless you are left handed in which case you would lift the left hand and grasp the refrigerator door firmly. If you don't grasp it firmly you will not have enough momentum to actually open the door. Once the door is opened search diligently and methodically through the contents looking for the egg carton...........you get the idea. By the time you learn how to boil an egg you've lost interest and anything he has to say is so boring you really just don't care anymore, assume the boiled egg would be just as boring and would grab a bag of chips. Off to get a bag of chips and look for another book!
