    A New York Times best-selling author and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner, Marvel Comics writer Jonathan Maberry continues the story he began in Rot and Ruin. Six months have passed since Benny Imura and Nix Riley learned that flesh-eating zombies aren’t the scariest or most dangerous monsters around. Now, Benny’s brother Tom is training them in the art of zombie whacking. But as they plan to leave and find a better future, a zombie attack puts a crimp in their plans.

    CRISTY says: "Hutchison's narration (once again) is excellent!"
    "GREAT start to the series!"

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

    Yes! For those whose guilty reading secret is zombie gore, this is a great addition to your library. This is a different story that picks up a decade and a half after the beginning of the zompoc.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tom Imura is a wonderful, mentor-like character who is misjudged by the person who has the most cause to trust him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The defeat of the villain makes you stand up and cheer. I loved the final confrontation scene and the surprise that appears during that scene. Maberry is good at tricking his audience.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end of the novel is tearjerking and completes the novel perfectly. Tears without death are always great moments in any book.

    Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia. Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.

    A dazzling urban satire of modern human relations? An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family? Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something? The third installment in Bridget Jones' journey, Mad About the Boy, will be out in October 2013.

    Have read this book half a dozen times and this is my first foray into Bridget's world on audio. Exactly the right voice for this entertaining character. Still laughed aloud at bits that I've read many times. Highly recommended.

    This is Irving Stone's powerful and passionate biographical novel of Michelangelo. His time: the turbulent Renaissance, the years of poisoning princes, warring popes, the all-powerful Medici family, the fanatic monk Savonarola. His loves: the frail and lovely daughter of Lorenzo de Medici; the ardent mistress of Marco Aldovrandi; and his last love - his greatest love - the beautiful, unhappy Vittoria Colonna.

    Jean says: "The Master of the Biographical Novel at his BEST"

    I'm a big fan of historical fiction. This book impressed me on all levels. The beauty of the words and the fascinating story of Michelangelo's life blended to create a wonderful tale of this great artist.

    Britain, early 10th century AD: a time of change. There are new raids by the Vikings from Ireland, and turmoil among the Saxons over the leadership of Mercia. A younger generation is taking over. Æthelred, the ruler of Mercia, is dying, leaving no legitimate heir. The West Saxons want their king, but Uhtred has long supported Athelflaed, sister to King Edward of Wessex and widow of Aethelred. Widely loved and respected, Athelflaed has all the makings of a leader - but can Saxon warriors ever accept a woman as their ruler?

    Jean says: "Cracking good historical fiction"
    "Carry on, Uhtred"

  • A Song for Arbonne

    A Song for Arbonne is Guy Gavriel Kay's critically acclaimed fantasy of love, both courtly and forbidden, and of kingdoms endlessly opposed - one dominated by male rulers and their male god, the other guided by women and their goddess.

    Yaryna says: "An alternate world"

    Story
    Where does A Song for Arbonne rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a top ranked story. I can't possibly give books a number rank, I've listened to too many. I'll go with percentages. This is a top ten percent book. I've never listened to or read anything by Kay, but I'll be diving into his works after this one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The shadowing of history. This book mirrors, in a fantasy world, the Albigensian Crusade and the story of the Cathars.


    Which character – as performed by Euan Morton – was your favorite?

    Blaise definitely, but his women were soft and well done. No annoying high pitched voices or impressions that he was trying too hard.


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

    It made me sigh. At the end. Because it was over.
