    The United States military hides a secret: the completely real existence of eat-your-brains, one-bite-and-you're-dead zombies. The Army has known they exist for over 100, and has been quietly and expertly keeping the secret. Until now. His hometown destroyed, with everyone he has ever known dead and gone, the sole survivor of the massacre at Fall Creek joins a secret military group to combat the single greatest threat our world has ever faced. Unfortunately, his help may come too late.

    If you could sum up The Dying of the Light: End in three words, what would they be?

    Our World's End


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dying of the Light: End?

    The deaths of some of the members of Alpha team and the whole second half of the book, when the $#%@ hit the fan...


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. The zombie outbreak is explained and justified in the narration, and you could see how a group of soldiers are trying to do their job no matter what. I also liked how the author handles the global reaction to the outbreak in a very realistic way.

    In these pages, you will thrill to some of the most exciting superhero stories ever to star a caped avenger, all written by DC Comics writer Robert T. Jeschonek. Don't miss these edgy, exciting, and surprising tales from this award-winning storyteller. This volume includes six superhero stories for one low price.

    What disappointed you about Six Superhero Stories?

    I found the stories predictable and deprived of real emotion


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Indifference


    Would you be willing to try another one of Craig Jessen’s performances?

    Maybe in a non-fiction book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Six Superhero Stories?

    I think there is too much I would cut. I cannot decide.

    The world has ended, and the few who are left struggle day by day to survive. They hoped that the worst thing they would have to deal with in this new world would be the walkers, who come to rip and tear and kill. They were wrong.

    Where does The Dying of the Light: Interval rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the most interesting zombie books I've listened in 2013


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dying of the Light: Interval?

    The trip back from Antartica.


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

    It's the first time I listened to him, but he does an excellent job making characters distinguishable and emotional.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. Lots of tense moments though.


    Any additional comments?

    Great vision of the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse. Totally worth it!

    In the winter of 1872, Captain William Trace and his men were ordered to investigate a series of unexplained attacks on local citizens in the remote villages of the wild and untamed Washington Territory. What Captain Trace found was pure nightmare fuel, and what had started as a simple reconnaissance mission had become something far, far more. For Captain Trace, the winter of 1872 was about survival, not just of the body, but of the mind.

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

    Absolutely! If you like zombies, you would enjoy this short story. After I read and listen The Dying of the Light: End this story explains how this nightmare started.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Captain William Trace, the main character. I liked the way this first outbreak is seen through Trace's eyes.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Andrew McFerrin?

    Probably

  • The Werewolf's Guide to Life: A Manual for the Newly Bitten

    The Werewolf's Guide to Life cuts through the fiction and guides you through your first transformation and beyond, offering indispensable advice on how to tell if you're really a werewolf, post-attack etiquette, breaking the news to your spouse, avoiding government abduction, and how to not just survive, but thrive. You cannot afford to not read this book. Your very life depends on it.

    Michelle says: "A totally new look at the werewolf."
    "Entertaining..."
    Overall

    If you like werewolves and you have some sense of humor you will like this audiobook. It respects the myth (unlike they have done with vampires so many times...) and gives you a new and modern perspective of what a werewolf should do in these days. I really enjoyed it and it will be one of the audiobooks that i will listen more than one time.
