    As the world spirals even further down into the abyss of apocalypse, one man struggles to keep those around him safe. Michael stands side by side with his wife, their children, his friends, and the wonder Bulldog, along with the Wal-Mart greeter Tommy, who is infinitely more than he appears. Whether Tommy is leading Mike and his family and friends to salvation or death remains to be seen.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'd recommend this book to a zombie nut.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    BT is the best buddy a guy can have. He always has Mike's back, provides comic relief, and a hard dose of common sense when the situation calls for it.


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

    Voices, definitely the voices! At first I was turned off by what I thought was a Family Guy dad voice and almost didn't buy the series, but then I read the reviews. I bought the first book, then the next, and am now waiting for ZFO6. Mr. Runnette plays a huge part in my loyalty. I can't imagine any other reader doing this series justice. Sean Runnette is versatile with voices, every character is distinct and ideally portrayed. Mr. Runnette has exquisite timing for comedy. He delivers the right emotional inflection that makes the series memorable.


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

    Mark Tufo has so many "wow" descriptions that I am stunned. It's hard to pick one moment. Terror, humor and good description makes every part of the book work for me.


    Any additional comments?

    You got a solid team here. Tufo + Runnette = success.

    The Ancient Enemy has risen from the depths of time and turned the world into a darkened and desolate place. The last outposts of humanity are hidden in the sewers and subways, guarding against patrolling hordes of walking dead and their overseers, the sadistic and inhuman Locust People. Struggling to survive in the New York underground is a young man named Jack. But Jack has an edge: a growing psychic power he uses to fight The Enemy's lieutenants.

    Timothy says: "Enjoyable. Memorable. Ready for the Sequel!"

    Would you listen to Lords of Night again? Why?

    The characters are distinctive, constantly giving each other a hard time, and realistically portrayed. The Ranger is intriguing. He catches flack for being loony (he actually wears a mask and thinks the military hospital's mental ward was a hoot), but in the end, no one doubts his skill.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Brannan is unpredictable. I thought I was getting a typical zombie apocalypse story, but there are so many surprising and creative aspects to this novel I was blown away.


    Have you listened to any of Jonah Cummings’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen to Jonah Cummings. I thought he did a fine job. All the characters are uniquely voiced.


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

    The end choked me up, especially the part about the chain of glow sticks.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to book two.

  • Survivors: The Morningstar Strain, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 5 mins)
    • By Z. A. Recht, Thom Brannan
    • Narrated By Oliver Wyman

    Survivors is the all-new soul-shattering climax to the postapocalyptic trilogy, featuring a deadly virus, military action, global devastation - and zombies. A lot can change in three months: Wars can be decided, nations can be forged...or entire species can be brought to the brink of annihilation. The Morningstar Virus, an incredibly virulent disease, has swept the face of the planet, infecting billions. The infected hosts rampage, attacking anything that remains uninfected.

    Ben says: "Good. But could have been so much better"
    "Wanted Recht's Style and Narrator's Consistency..."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book, but only as part of the series. The Morningstar Strain, Book 1, was my first introduction to the zombie genre. It's hard to find that perfect blend of memorable characters (General Francis Sherman and Sergeant Major Thomas were brilliant!), military action, and knuckle-whitening chills in a zombie apocalypse. More so in the first two books than in the third. Only Day By Day Armageddon, by J.L. Borne, is on par with Recht's books. In Survivors, the style is inconsistent, but I understand why and doubt anyone could mirror Z.A.'s unique vision. I am grateful to the family for releasing Z.A. Recht's final volume, and to Thom Brannan for completing the work. Thank you.


    Would you recommend Survivors to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not without first reading the other two books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Oliver Wyman's voice is normally my audiodrug of choice, but what happened to Brewster and the others? I can't read Morningstar without hearing Wynman's characterization as portrayed in the first two books! Then Survivors happened. Why Wynman?!! Couldn't you have just taken a moment to listen to Brewster from your previous recordings? I'm just saying.


    Do you think Survivors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If only.
