    Callis Rose is a girl blessed with a gift from above or cursed with a ruthless power she barely understands; it's really just a matter of degrees. As her family life is turned asunder she is thrown into an indifferent Social Services program where she defends herself the only way she knows how. Callis is moved from home to home until she finally settles at the Lowries. As she starts her first day of high school she meets both her favorite and least favorite person. Both happen to be part of the same household.

    I would have given this story 3 stars, except for the return of one of my favorite ZF characters, that alone was worth the ride. The story was predictable, dark, and did I mention predictable?

    Just another awesome book that combines Tufo's talent with Runnette's wonderful ability to weave a tale. Absolutely loved it and love that it is far different from normal zombie apocalypse tales.

    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.

    I really enjoyed the book, and it was definitely worth purchasing. I was a bit disappointed only that many aspects of the book seemed like so many other similar tales that I've read. Still, definitely worth a listen!

    This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

    I happened upon this series randomly, or maybe it was meant to be. I am not a huge fan of gore or horror so was almost scared away. I couldn't be more happy that I gave it a chance. The main character, has such a wonderful sense of humour and is such a sarcastic d*ck sometimes, he is impossible not to love! The other characters all make the story that much more vivid! Absolutely hooked me from the start, I promise you will not be disappointed!

    The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

    Teddy says: "Loved it! Mike Talbot Returns!!!"
    "Amazing!"

    Where does Lycan Fallout rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    top 15 (the Zombie fallout books take up the first 7 spots of course!)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Purpose <3


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The combination of Sean Runnette and Mark Tufo is so amazing, I have every book that they have done together and can't get enough.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't want to spoil it, but Tommy definitely brought a sentimental moment for me


    Any additional comments?

    Just wonderful to get to see what Talbot would do in another situation! I can't get enough! The book is amazingly written, has a great combination of story, memories, comedy, sarcasm, terror, and a little bit of sexiness! Awesome combination!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Fallout 7: For The Fallen to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, Sean Runnette makes the characters come alive! He is Mike Talbot in my mind, and makes the story even better!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Henry of course, for his smile and his ever present gassy gifts to his family


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He absolutely presents the humor and the sarcasm of BT and Mike, which makes the story come alive!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Couldn't turn it off until I listened to it all!


    Any additional comments?

    I love the series, and loved this book as well (but I do admit the ending was a bit of a disappointment)
