    They say Black Dow has killed more men than winter and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbor, is not about to stand by smiling while Black Dow claws his way any higher. The orders have been given, and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

    "Why this narrator?"
    Overall

    I have never finished a book narrated by Michael Page. I bought this book without looking at who the narrator was and i regret it. I will go buy the real book and read it. The other books in the series were great so i just bought. Never going to make that mistake again.

    In a desperate bid to take back the continental United States - where hordes of undead now dominate the ravaged human population - a Navy commander leads a global mission to the heart of the pandemic. Task Force Hourglass is humanity’s final hope, and his team’s agonizing decisions could mean living one day more - or surrendering to the eternal hell that exists between life and death.

    Any additional comments?

    I liked the single perspective of the previous books. The sudden change to multiple ones made it seem just like any other zombie book out there currently.

    How the mighty have fallen! Once a sworn enemy of all vampires, Anita is now the human consort of both Jean-Claude, the Master Vampire, and Micah, the leopard shapeshifter. But her love life doesn't stop there. It can't. For Anita - not quite as human as she once was - is consumed by both the lusts of the vampire and the primal hungers of the wereleopards. Desires that must be sated - time and time again.

    Kimberly says: "Why did they change Narraters?"

    Overall

    Her earlier books were more about a mystery and a lot of action with some sex thrown in. Now it is sex with very little action and a mystery as an afterthought.

    Story
    (663)

    From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

    Prsilla says: "And a Cast of Thousands!"
    "Only OK"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the listen for the most part. I especially listened intently to the beginning, which described the Korean War which i did not know much about. I could do without hearing "Miss Nicole Lenoir-Jourdan" full name said over and over again. I get it already, her name is long and she is a wonderful lady. Just shorten it to "Nicole." The ending would have been far better if it was more realistic and less happy happy.
