    Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes. Vigilantes. Crusaders for justice, using their superhuman abilites to make Los Angeles a better place. Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Despite the best efforts of the superheroes, the police, and the military, the hungry corpses rose up and overwhelmed the country. The population was decimated, heroes fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland like so many others.

    I was unable to listen to this on the Audible app, I had to use itunes instead. So that wasn't a good start. I did like the fact they used two narrators, I got into the story right away. Unfortunately, there are better apocalyptic books out there that are better. I won't be continuing with the series, but it was an okay listen thankfully to the narration.

    Story

    Totally absurd, smartly written, entertaining and unexpected! The narrator was GREAT! I really hope there's a next one and that is just as good as this one, because I felt a mix of sadness and anticipation when I was about to finish this one.

    For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf – her wolf – is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives. In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human... until the cold makes him shift back again.

    Story

    This book is definitely for young girls in high school. It does deal with death and sex but very lightly. As with all YA novels, parents are never around and the teenagers are smarter than them. I won't buy the next novel since this puppy love story was not for me.

    The second instalment in James Patterson's magical new series.Whit and Wisty Allgood are leading the Resistance against the despotic New Order. Hailed as ‘Liberators’, they are prophesised to overthrow the ruling regime. As such, Whit and Wisty have achieved notoriety and are very much at the top of the New Order’s ‘most wanted' list. But as time passes, they are becoming more skilful at harnessing their magical capabilities, and their powers are growing stronger every day.

    I am sorry to say that the first book was ok, but this one was awful. I don't know if James Patterson even read it much less wrote it. A waste of a credit, and I won't get the last one either.
