    Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way - not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

    Annie says: "Decent zombie story but lacking depth"

    What would have made Hollowland better?

    A different author.


    What was most disappointing about Amanda Hocking’s story?

    1. Horrible writing
    2. the use of the word "Hella"
    3. No connection to the characters, no story development, just awful.


    What didn’t you like about Eileen Stevens’s performance?

    I'm not sure if it was the horrible content or the combination of the two. Monotone and disconnected.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The Lion was the best character.

    In Book Six of Adrian's Undead Diary, no one near Adrian is safe. Many will make the ultimate sacrifice to ensure that he can keep his loved ones protected at any cost, and rebuild a new, better world. In the Arms of Family also follows Kevin and Michelle as their stories entwine and bring them ever closer to the horrors that surround Adrian across the vast Atlantic Ocean. How long can they survive before the dead finish what they came to do?

    What made the experience of listening to In the Arms of Family the most enjoyable?

    After feeling so much for these characters I didn't think I could love any more of them- but alas....the existence of the Kevin/Michelle storyline is great. During the parts with Caleb/Becca I literally was yelling out loud in the car- it was ridiculous.


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

    He embodies Adrian. I would read other books just for him- I hope they keep in for the duration.

    For the first time, the Internet phenomenon is now in print! Beheading a zombie isn't easy in a world where you're more afraid of the living than the dead. Adrian Ring's simple life is thrown into chaos when the world is ripped apart by a plague of undead and legions of desperate survivors. Retreating to Auburn Lake Preparatory Academy, Adrian attempts to rescue friends and family on the way while dancing around his impending insanity over who and what he left behind, and evading maniac survivors.

    What did you love best about Dark Recollections?

    This book was a winner from the get go- the level of detail brings you right into the story. So much so, that I often find myself thinking how I would do it or where I would go and have to rewind the book. It goes into detail on things the zombie movies and other books gloss over and it's the important stuff!


    Any additional comments?

    The performer is great- I have come to associate him with Adrian!

    In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

    Jennifer says: "Meh."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If you hate books with strong, intelligent and courageous female leads you will LOVE this book. the one dimensional main character offers you nothing. No empathy..just pathetic, irrational, cowardly and selfish. It's not just Mary either- none of them are likable or realistic. This is literally the only book I have never finished. In my life.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vane Millon’s performances?

    She wasn't great but she didn't have great material. However, when she did Jacob's voice I literally laughed out loud at the ridiculousness.


    Any additional comments?

    Please. Please don't read this. If you want post apocalypse YA- read Enclave or the 5th Wave. Post Apocalypse non YA- The Passage or Station 11.

    New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings.

    This series is amazing. It is real, dark, funny, a story of redemption.... it's honestly great. It is the best series I have read since Hunger Games and I have read them all.

    The narrator is awful. Just Awful and does Deuce no justice but you get used to her and then it's not nearly as bad. I get it- I almost stopped because of her too but it's worth it to keep going. I promise.
