    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Overall

    I've listened to many zombie audio books including World War Z, Plague of the Dead, Day by Day Armageddon, Thunder and Ashes etc and this book is right up there with them. I highly recommend it. Ray Porter this at masterfull job with the narration and I'm looking forward to hearing him again. I just have to say..."Couldn't put my ipod down"

    A mysterious incident in Russia, a blip buried in the news - it’s the only warning humanity receives that civilization will soon be destroyed by a single, voracious virus that creates monsters of men. A lawyer, still grieving over the death of his young wife, begins to write as a form of therapy. But he never expected that his anonymous blog and journal would ultimately record humanity’s last days. Governments scramble to stop the zombie virus, people panic, so-called Safe Havens are established, the world erupts into chaos; soon it’s every man, woman, and child for themselves.

    I've read a lot of good post apocalyptic books. Alas Babylon, World War Z, Earth Abides, Patient Zero, Day by Day Armageddon etc etc... This book was amazing. If I had to compare, it reminded me of Day by Day Armageddon but better. Once I finished it, I purchased the second book right away... they are both great.. what's amazing to me is that I was able to submerge myself in the story. .. loved it.

    The ancient books of Genesis and Enoch tell us that sprit beings known as the Watchers descended to the Earth, had sex with women, and begat a hybrid race of offspring known as the Nephilim. Such tales are as old as humanity itself. These histories and accounts of visitations and subsequent mixed-blood, alien-human races comprise the bulk of the world's myths, legends, religions, and superstitions.

    I felt I was listening to a compilation of the most bizarre/rare/debatable passages taken from the bible and non-canonical books. The author however did not add much insight to these passages. Instead he brings each one of them to our attention with the purpose of making us think and draw our own conclusions. I’m glad I read the Genesis and the book of Enoch before I listened to this; otherwise I wouldn't have understood it. I felt angry at times because not much additional information was given, I wish the author would have at least offered more… He did a lot of research though, I can tell he spent time going over their history. I wouldn't recommend this book for Christians as it touches a lot on passages from non-canonical books, Alien theories, secular history and non-factual stories. Interesting to listen to nevertheless. I also picked up a couple of new Ideas and concepts I didn't know about.
