    On a cold October night, five people gather in a run-down motel on the Jersey shore and begin preparations to break into the Paragon Hotel. Built in the glory days of Asbury Park by a reclusive millionaire, the magnificent structure - which foreshadowed the beauties of art deco architecture - is now boarded up and marked for demolition.

    It had some good parts. I felt the beginning was too slow for me. It kept dragging on. The last third of the book held the most intensity, but by then I didn't care as much. I like fast paced action. This was not it.

    On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova - a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.

    Story

    Pessi has written a fascinating mystery with many twists and turns. The characters are very rich and layered, so much so you can clearly see them in your mind's eye. As soon as you think you know where the story's going, BAM-it changes again. I love creepy mysteries, and this one definitely fits the bill. Film actor Jake Weber does a fabulous job as narrator, and could be even pictured as our protagonist.

    I raced my way to the end, so excited to see where this roller coaster of a ride would take me. With that said, I can't help but feel ripped off by the ending. After so many ups and downs, the ending seemed too easy and not well thought out. After listening for 23 hours and becoming so immersed in the world Pessi created, I needed an ending that fit the story. It just wasn't there.

    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.

    My first Peter Clines book. It was fantastic! It's been a long time since I couldn't stop listening to an audiobook. I wanted to know all the answers to all the mysterious questions. Right when things would be intense, Clines would throw some levity into the mix. This book did NOT disappoint!

    Story

    I throughly enjoy a good creepy tale. Among my favorites would be Stephen King and Dean Koontz. This author did not disappoint. I was so engrossed in the story that I couldn't stop listening to it. I was extremely intrigued as to where it would lead. The story does fluctuate between past and present, which I count as a plus as it kept me in constant suspense. Due is a fantastic author! I look forward to her next audiobook.

    The second, riveting novel from Bram Stoker Award-winner Jack Ketchum, Hide and Seek is a book about games. Reckless, dangerous games. Games you might even want to play yourself if you're with the right people. But shouldn't. Not ever… In a small Maine town, a group of thrill seeking college kids finds a game of hide and seek in an abandoned house turning into a reality of stark terror.

    I was so bored listening to this one. Even towards the end where the "action" is was awful as well. Waste of a credit and a waste of my time.

    Our heroes are dressed in homemade uniforms and armed with prop phasers but soon find themselves defending their hotel and convention center against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Suddenly, all of their useless knowledge about particle physics and old Star Trek episodes has genuine real-world applications! And while hotel employees and regular civilians are dying left and right, our Trekkies summon strength and courage by emulating their favorite starship-voyaging characters

    "A Great Read!!!"
    Overall

    I found this book highly entertaining. It had so many elements of the genre, including a good amount of humor. I'm not a Star Trek fan, but I was still able to appreciate "the humor." Quite simply put, it was just downright great! If you have read the Scott Sigler books, there is most definitely a connection with zombies from this book and the characters in Sigler's Infected and Contagious. However the book was so fun, I just didn't care.

    Francis Sherman and Anna Demilio want only a vaccine, but to find it, they must cross a countryside in ruins, dodging not only the infected, but also the lawless living. The bulk of the storm has passed over the world, leaving echoing thunder and softly drifting ashes. But for the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure is just beginning.

    Scott says: "The strain continues, for now."
    "Loved it!!!"
    Overall

    After reading the first novel, I looked forward to reading the second one. It proved to be even better. Of course I was REALLY excited for the end of the trilogy. That's when I found out the 26 year old author died recently. I am hoping with the hit that this story is someone can come in and finish up the storyline in a way that would make Recht proud and give closure to his readers.

    The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind has ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rate. Death. But it doesn't end there. The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic.

    I listened to this only on the recommendations of other audible members. It turned out pretty good. It took me a little while to get into it, however once you do it's definitely worth it. If you like this one then you'd really enjoy Patient Zero.

    Dru Anderson is a very special girl - even if she doesn't always feel it. Gifted with "the touch", Dru travels about with her dad, hunting all manner of things that go bump in the night. But then her dad turns up dead - or, er, undead - and everything changes.

    No. It's not another Twilight wannabe. It's more like the Supernatural TV show and cross it with Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show and then sprinkle a little Twilight on top. I ended up getting each book in the series. Can't wait for the next one!

    Both a dystopian masterpiece and a timely cautionary tale of what could happen if the powers that be monkey around with the food chain for their own ends, "Meat" breaks new ground in horror fiction.

    Great story! I love horror stories and this is definitely one of them. Warning: it is VERY graphic. Also make sure you listen for changing character POV. It does change back and forth a lot, so if you're not paying attention you might get confused.

    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....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."

    Overall

    A new spin on the zombie genre. It was fast paced, the narration was good and so thrilling that I was finished with it in three days. Looking forward to more of the Joe Ledger series.
