    The Talbots are evacuating their home amidst a zombie apocalypse. Mankind is on the edge of extinction as a new dominant, mindless opponent scours the landscape in search of food, which just so happens to be noninfected humans. The Talbots have escaped Little Turtle, but to what end? On the run, they find themselves encountering a far vaster evil than the one that has already beset them. As they travel across the countryside they soon learn that there are more than just zombies to be fearful of....

    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a weird little series. It took me halfway through the first book to get into the groove of the inappropriate humor, what is usually internal dialogue being external, and seemingly light-hearted approach to the zombie genre. Once I got it into my head that this felt like a character with some time and distance from the events using the "laugh or lose your mind and cry" approach it all made sense to me. I would encourage readers to hang in there, get through the first book, and see if it doesn't grow on you. If I hadn't paid 20 bucks for the audio book I would have stopped a chapter in. I'm soooo glad I didn't because now I'm on book 6 and I love this series. This isn't a humorous take on zombies. It is a character (like cops, military, er nurses etc) using sarcasm and black humor to get through tragedy and horror.

    Wayward Pines, Idaho, is quintessential small-town America — or so it seems. Secret Service agent Ethan Burke arrives in search of two missing federal agents, yet soon is facing much more than he bargained for. After a violent accident lands him in the hospital, Ethan comes to with no ID and no cell phone. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into his colleagues’ disappearance turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he make contact with his family in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what’s the purpose of the electrified fences encircling the town? Are they keeping the residents in? Or something else out? Each step toward the truth takes Ethan further from the world he knows, until he must face the horrifying possibility that he may never leave Wayward Pines alive…

    What would have made Pines better?

    Slight spoiler alert***
    Leave out the environmental "the sky is falling and humans are a scourge on the Earth" baloney. It's very disappointing to finally get to find out the grand mystery and then it's just a bunch of enviro-babble and bad science. Just make something up out of whole cloth and stop lecturing when you should be entertaining. On the other hand if you DO believe humans are a scourge on the Earth and should be wiped off it then you will love this book ;) It would just be nice to know ahead of time as I am not interested in this message.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Blake Crouch again?

    No

    Six months ago, the world ended. The Baugh Contagion swept across the planet. Its victims were left twitching, adrenalized cannibals that quickly became know as Junkies. Civilization crumbled as people created isolated safe havens to hide from the infected... and the possibly infected. Now, as society nears a tipping point, lives will intersect and intertwine across two days in a desolate city.

    What would have made The Junkie Quatrain better?

    Leave out the random unnecessary interjections of political cheap shots.


    Has The Junkie Quatrain turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love the genre.


    What does Christian Rummel and Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Therese Plummer was okay but Christian Rummel was really really good. I'm glad I listened to this on audio.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadly it just sparked meh. It sounded like an interesting premise but quickly devolved into the same old evil rich guy/ government cabal blah blah blah. One section in I could see where we were going and it was to retread town.


    Any additional comments?

    The writing wasn't bad, just unoriginal and as a huge fan of this genre I'm sick of the same old bad guy story. The one thing I really did like was the new take on the infected. This is not zombies - but more like 28 Days Later rage infected but with some very interesting nuances.

    As a new plague related to the rabies virus infects millions, America recalls its military forces from around the world to safeguard hospitals and other vital buildings. Many of the victims become rabid and violent but are easily controlled—that is, until so many are infected that they begin to run amok, spreading slaughter and disease.

    What made the experience of listening to Tooth and Nail the most enjoyable?

    Nonstop action!


    What other book might you compare Tooth and Nail to and why?

    Z A Recht's Morningstar saga is a similar book. Same larger scope military viewpoint so if you liked either you'll probably like the other ;)


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book. Serious heavy nonstop zombie action - the infected rage kind not shamblers. This is told mostly through the eyes of an Army brigade and thousands of infected get mowed down on a regular basis. Only a few terminology or military culture mistakes so if you've served this book won't drive you nuts with lack of weapon research etc. That said if you aren't a fan of the military, like very deep character development, appreciate sentient zombies, or are a shambler purist then skip this book. If you love action, the military, and or terrifying swarms and hordes of PO'd zombies - you'll be onboard with this relentless rotting train!

    Time is a very fluid thing, no one really has a grasp on it other than maybe how to measure it. As the maestro of the Day by Day Armageddon Universe, I have the latitude of being in control of that time. I can adjust the slider either direction, moving the timeline back and forth along the continuum. This is one of the perks of creation, the benefit in constructing something (albeit small) from nothing. Sort of makes you wonder what the maestro of the universe is up to, no? You have again stumbled upon a ticket with service through the apocalyptic wastes, but this time the train is a little bit older, a little more beat up, and maybe a little wiser. Keep your doors locked.

Wrapped in the woman's arms is a baby - stone-cold, not breathing, and without a pulse. But then his eyes open and look up at Wanda, and he begins to move.The family hides the child - whom they name Stony - rather than turn him over to authorities who would destroy him. Against all scientific reason, the undead boy begins to grow....

    Let me start by saying I am not a fan of the warm and fuzzy sentient zombie section of z fiction. In fact I hate most of them. I like action and dumb shamblers. That said, I really enjoyed this book so for those who are more inclined to this type of zombie story I bet you will really love it! This book is well narrated, beautifully written, interesting with good character development and wholly unique.

    Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

    Patches the cat - absolutely. Runnette perfectly captures what I think my cat's inner voice must sound like. Great job!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Couldn't put it down and was very sad when it was over :( Hope there will be more!


    Any additional comments?

    This is as good if not better than Tufo's other z series. You will love this series if you are an animal lover, or a zombie lover, and if you are both you just can't miss this. Very detailed, great animal characters, and on the edge of your seat zombie action. Ever wonder what your dog or cat is really thinking when they are barking at nothing or randomly slapping you with a claw? This series gives you a pretty good idea what might be going on in their furry little heads!

Now this motley mishmash of mammals are running for their lives.

    When the zombie apocalypse strikes without warning one dog will hold the fate of her pack in her paws. This is the story of Riley, an American bulldog. Follow along as she tries to keep her pack safe from a zombie apocalypse. Traveling with her are Ben-Ben the high-strung Yorkie; her favorite two-legger, Jessie; Jessie's younger brother, Zachary; and Riley's archenemy, Patches the cat. They are a rag-tag group of survivors, who, when pushed to the limit, realize that they are all each other has.
