    It’s been two years since the world ended. Two years since the dead rose and the plague of ex-humanity decimated mankind. For most of that time, the superhero called St. George, formerly known to the world as the Mighty Dragon, has protected the people of Los Angeles at their film-studio-turned-fortress, The Mount. Together with his fellow heroes, he’s tried to give the survivors hope and something like a real life. But the swollen population of The Mount is becoming harder and harder to sustain....

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not a bad listen just kind of bland story. Zombies vs superheroes can only go so far. Voice actor does a nice job.


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

    Typical.


    What does Jay Snyder and Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Voice actors have nice tones and do well with action.


    Do you think Ex-Patriots needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. Not much else to do with this story.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    What made the experience of listening to Hexed the most enjoyable?

    I thoroughly enjoyed Hounded. This book was an excellent continuation. Can't get enough Oberan; he's just too funny. I also enjoy the author's use of classic 80 movie lines.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just the conglomeration of Demons, Bacchants, and witches keep the story fast paced and enjoyable. It has a modern LOTR feel to it with a splash of well-timed humor.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He's great. I hope he continues telling the story of Atticus O’Sullivan and his band of misfits.


    Any additional comments?

    One of my all-time favorite series hope it continues.

  • Ender's Game: Special 20th Anniversary Edition

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

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

    Yes. I am truly surprised that a story of a young boy's journey (through space even) could be so memorizing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ender's Game?

    Ender becoming a leader even when he was unsure of himself.


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

    Left me wanting more, but the 2nd book disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book if you can't find anything else. Definitely worth a credit.

    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.

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

    This book was simply written yet became so deep over time. Had a tad of a slow start, but got weird just in time. Having read so many books it has become hard to surprise me, this book pulled it off.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of 14?

    Couldn't even say without spoilers. The book had plenty.


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I did not notice anything strange and believe me when I do the book is toast. Too many readers hang or have a rasp and I just end up concentrating on their mistakes. Ray is an upper level reader. He delivers a story with out compromise.


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

    How close the tenants became thought out the story even though they had nothing in common except living in the same building.


    Any additional comments?

    You won't be sorry on this one!

    The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems....

    Story
    Would you listen to The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury again? Why?

    Yes. How can someone possibly get enough of Walking dead anything? Plus the Governor really gets interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lilly and her relationships and how drastically things change so quickly. Plus did I mention the Governor?


    Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favorite?

    Definitely the Governor with Lilly a close second.


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

    This is a survival book, but even knowing that it still surprised me several times. No time for tears in Woodbury.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not a fan of walking dead you will still love this book. Amazingly the humans are more dangerous than the walkers.

    Story

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sadie. Refreshing attitude and innocence.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first school dance.


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

    The final choice.
