    Each year, the residents of Pine Deep host the Halloween Festival, drawing tourists and celebrities from across the country to enjoy the deliciously creepy fun. Those who visit the small Pennsylvania town are out for a good time, but those who live there are desperately trying to survive. For a monstrous evil lives among them, a savage presence whose malicious power has grown too powerful even for death to hold it back.

    Wow, what a great series. I first became a fan of J. Maberrys with his Joe Ledger Books. After I ripped through all 5 like a wildman, anything from Maberry had to be great so I added the Pine Deep Trilogy to my "To Do" list. The only thing I can complain about is that I waited so long to get started on it. Since the next Ledger book is coming out later this month (3/32/14) I decided to queue them up and go!
    I listened to all three back to back to back so this review is going to encompass all 3 books, but dont worry, Ill avoid spoilers. One piece of advice, forget everything you know about werewolves and vampires. Maberry has a really nice twist that will leave you a little lost until Bad Moon Rising (book 3) when it all comes together nicely.
    Great writing, great story, great characters, great narrator in Tom Weiner. When I first started I felt a Stephen King vibe in the depth of the characters and surroundings, but not a rip off way, just in the buildup. The story unfolds over the three books, and you are given bits along the way. Maberry treats us to a variety of bad guys, not just one or two. You get your pick of who you hate the most. So for me, this was a real good listen. If you like your listens in the 10 hour time frame, then this may be much for you since you'll invest 47 hours in it. If you like a nice long walk in the park of death and mayhem, then this is a good one. @byf2

    For many years, the protagonist and his uncle, Dr. Elihu Whipple, have nurtured a dark fascination with an old, abandoned house on Benefit Street, in Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Whipple has made extensive records tracking the mysterious, yet apparently coincidental sickness, madness and death of many who have lived in the house, for over 150 years.

    This a real short listen, only 1 hour and 12 minutes so I chose it to fill some spare time. HP Lovecraft is a masterful writer and this book is a great example of if. His art of description is unmatched and shows in the fact the house was the main character. The book was narrated by Neil Hellegers (who also voiced “Dead Drunk”) and done a very solid job. He built anticipation during the read and heighten the grotesque aspects of the house as they were unveiled.

    So, if you have a hour or so and need a good fill, this is a good book with a good narrator. No reason not to put it on your wishlist!

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.

    Story

    OK, this was not what I was used to in a zombie thriller, but in a good way. Usually there is "good guy" character or group of characters trying to survive the dead, while trying to also survive the living "bad guys". This story is unique in the fact that the main character, Cyrus, is a disconnected, withdrawn, self proclaimed borderline sociopath who has no sympathy for any other survivor. What I found compelling about the story is how well it is written to pull the listener in. Two hours into the listen I would have been glad if Cyrus had been killed off because he is such a rotten person. BUT, the story and Cyrus evolves, he grows fond of some, begins to find he has a moral compass, and starts to evolve into a "better" version of himself. He is by no means a good guy yet, but there is a second book and we can only hope.

    Eloise J Knapp is a excellent writer that we should all pay attention to, I am adding her to my watch list. The narrator is Kevin T Collins and he did a solid job of the narration. He does have a slight Christian Slater vibe to his voice, but that is not a bad thing (unless you dont like C Slater).

    I give this book a solid "YOU MUST LISTEN" recommendation. @byf2 and MyNextListen dot com

    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.

    Story

    This may be one of the best Audiobooks I have ever listened to. I was expecting a haunted apartment with ghosts, spirits, or demons, but man, was I surprised. I am a big fan of Peter Clines and his “EX” series so I knew this would be good, but it was way more than I expected. The first half of the book has really nothing supernatural going on, just the hint of something amiss. But Clines writes it in such a way I was always on the edge of my seat while “things” were revealed through out the story. By the time I was half way into the story and thought I knew where it was going…..wrong, Peter Clines took it in a completely brilliant different direction. I love the way he threaded actual historical persons with the story line. And Ray Porter is a master narrator and brought life and depth to the story and characters. Great story, great performance, great narration, if you haven’t got the vibe yet, I loved this one and yes, YOU MUST listen to it. @byf2. More at MyNextListen dot com

    Story

    This is the second book in the series, the first being Darlene Bobich, Zombie Killer. Darlene has made her way to Florida, just south of St Augustine. I really like this setting because I am a native Floridian, and am familiar with the area, so this was pretty cool to me. Darlene is not your typical zombie hero, (read my review on the first book) she is just as lucky as she is ruthless, and does not hesitate in doing what needs to be done. She also has a very human side with desires and regrets, which is very refreshing. Overall, I am really enjoying the series. Armand Rosamilia has written a very unique view of the ZA that has a lot of directions still left unexplored. I am looking forward to learning more about the side characters and the circumstances surrounding them.

    This was narrated by Amanda M Lehman. I thought she did a better job on the first book and may have tried a little hard on this one. With that being said, she did not take away from the book and I would listen to her other works. Just being honest. @byf2

    Story

    I really enjoy finding new authors that are putting out new, different and captivating content. Mark Matthews is one of these guys. You can tell he is a serious runner because the imagery he uses can only be from experience, not background interviews. This is a very scary story based on the possibility of something like this actually existing in our dark world. The monsters are human, while being as un-human as possible. The characters are very believable and he ties together experiences that we all have faced as parents as an anchor of sorts. For example, we have all had that time where we lost track of our child, if only for a second, in a crowded place, Matthews links us to the characters with situations we have all had.

    The narration was done by Bob Dunsworth, who has over 30 books to his credit on Audible. He does a good job with the only exception being that his “first person voice” sometimes distracts from the story and shifts you to the delivery. Its almost like it is a production issue where they had to go back and re-voice a sentence or two and the pitch was off. That is really my only complaint, really, so I am not knocking on him, just giving you my impression.

    I recommend this as a solid horror listen, its not a long one, 6 and half hours, fast paced with no downtime. Give it a listen, unless you are a runner and plan to listen to it while you are running, AT NIGHT, ALONE. If that’s you, then listen to it during the day, in the car! Byf2 MyNextListen

    Story

    My Review: I have been waiting for this book for a long time. When I saw that it was a sequel to Patient Zero, the first book in the series, I wondered how that was going to work. Was I supposed to forget all that happened in the 5 book series? All the ones that died, still alive?

    Well, the reason Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite authors is because he is a great writer. This is both a sequel and book number 6. It takes place in the proper timeline but gives us a view into things that happened back during the events of Patient Zero and even into The Dragon Factory that, at the time, were hidden to us. This is by no means a rehash, but a masterful weaving of story and story lines. No spoilers here, so I not going to get into all the details. All the characters you love, and love to hate are here. Ray Porter once again does a great job narrating, as he always has. You have no reason not to listen to this, as a matter of fact, you OWE it to yourself. @byf2

    In under 10 minutes, 99.9% of the world's population will be dead... or changed. Conversion is instant. Headshots just make them angry. And they're getting smarter. Ken Strickland has made it through the first moments. But his family is still out there. Can he survive? Can he find them? Or will he become one more of the creatures that now rule our world?

    This is a short listen, only 4 hours and 39 min. I got a 10.00 credit from audible, I had this one on my watch list for awhile and wisely invested my 10.00. This was a really entertaining listen and was action from beginning to end. It had a couple of nice twists around cell phone signals and zombies going into a trance for a short period. It does end in cliffhanger, but you can only fit so much into 4 and a half hours. All will be revealed in the next book if Collings continues the series. His continuation to audio hinges on us listening to this one, so I recommend you getting it, if not for your own enjoyment, but so I can find out what the cell phone and trance thing is all about…….@byf2

    I have been meaning to listen to this book for some time now and decided to work it in. I wish I had not waited so long. This was a nice change of pace from the normal when it comes to zombie tales. The main character is Darlene Bobich (as you may have guessed) who is no Alice or Selene, but takes everything coming her way head on. Now, I need to make this clear, this is NOT a young adult book, its way to graphic and violent. Darlene faces the undead and the living, and in her case, the living have less humanity. She is a young and attractive and since the law no longer keeps people in check, she has it pretty rough. But, she perseveres, and takes a measure of revenge along the way. This is a pretty quick listen (2hrs 32min) but there is a second one waiting for me next, Dying Days. So, if you like zombie fiction, then I highly recommended Armand Rosamilia.

    From the powerful imagination of a horror master comes a bone-chilling tale set in a small town where good and evil are joined in a terrifying, deadly battle. Once an idyllic Pennsylvania village, Pine Deep awoke one morning to find itself bathed in a massive bloodletting. Twice in 30 years, the townsfolk have endured the savage hungers of a murderous madman—but if the residents think the death of serial killer Karl Ruger put an end to the carnage, they’re dead wrong.
