    In the Pacific, as USS Walker is repaired and updated after a previous battle and Reddy is healing from his wounds, planning begins for a bold raid on the very heart of the Grik Empire. But time is running out for the Alliance army in India, and the Allied forces in the west must gather in an unprecedented land, air, and sea campaign to destroy the mighty Grik battle fleet and break through to their relief. All other plans go on hold when the attempt proves more difficult - and more heartbreakingly costly - than anyone imagined.

    After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of the Church of God Awaiting - egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athawes. Now, in the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the populous Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I actually like Keven Collins the narrater but not this time. Kevin listen to a previous book or two for the tone of the book and pronunciation. You were so over the top and messed up simple words, We deserved better from you David and the publisher.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    It did not


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    No


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Homework is important


    Do you have any additional comments?

    When you change a narrator twice is a series with characters we love. You should care more about the people who buy your books

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    What made the experience of listening to The Twelve: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    I like the characters and the story line. I don't mind the religious overtone to a point but if your not a christian and don't want a lecture sermon you might want to pass on the book.

    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    What did you love best about 14?

    I thought the book was inventive, different, the character interesting and comfortable. The last time I enjoyed a book this much was "Agent to The Stars" by John Sealzi
