    Season two of this action-packed audio drama plunges listeners back into a ravaged world of violence and terror. The hope of a better life forces the survivors of the Tower out into the dissolving world around them. The consequences of past battles leave them struggling not only with each other but the remaining fragments of humanity.

    Not as over the top great as the 1st season, but that is still miles ahead of anything else I've listened to of this nature. It's a little slower than the first year, but you get to know the characters better. Still 4 stars!

    Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

    The GREAT Ms. Dawson! The only issue I had was I kept seeing her and had trouble seeing the character. I guess she took over the character, which was OK in my book! Loved the story, loved the ending! LOL Very detailed, which again, I loved because I do really like to know all the little details. Great stuff, I will check out more from this author.

    The battle has begun. There is no more running away or trying to hide. The survivors confront their attackers head on, both human and otherwise. As the mystery starts to unravel surrounding the man in the pin-striped suit, can our heroes stop him in time? We're Alive: A Story of Survival, the Fourth Season, the final season, features 12 chapters packed with performances and sound effects that rival movies and prove that modern audio drama is undead and well.

    For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.

    This is the way the world ends: with a nanosecond of computer error in a Defense Department laboratory and a million casual contacts that form the links in a chain letter of death. And here is the bleak new world of the day after: a world stripped of its institutions and emptied of 99 percent of its people. A world in which a handful of panicky survivors choose sides - or are chosen.

    Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the End of the World. In science fiction, the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm. But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH will tell their stories. Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and bestselling author Hugh Howey, THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH is a series of three anthologies of apocalyptic fiction. THE END IS NIGH focuses on life before the apocalypse. THE END IS NOW turns its attention to life during the apocalypse. And THE END HAS COME focuses on life after the apocalypse.

    Story

    I have listened to (or tried to) several selections. Tried to give them a chance, but I didn't get a good "feel" from the start. THIS ONE was magic, and instant!
    I loved the format of multiple short stories.
    I loved the multiple voice actors, that really brought it to life versus one voice reading all the parts.
    But the stories, WOW! There were only a few that didn't immediately pull me in and hold me. So varied, random, the characters and stories were brilliant. If the other two volumes are anywhere close to this one... I am looking forward to finding out. If I can amend this review later, I will.
