    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.

    Story

    I originally purchased this book when I saw it "on the cheap" on one of Audbiles specials. I had the lowest of expectations just judging from the cover art and the name of the book but as I drive allot and the price was right I figured I would give it a try.
    MUCH to my delight this was a fun, action packed and funny as hell book. I ended up well hooked on the series and have now read them all. Larry has a good imagination and a heck of a sick sense of humor, which I can relate to.
    Bottom line............Loved it.

    For years the Department of Military Sciences has fought to stop terrorists from using radical bioweapons - designer plagues, weaponized pathogens, genetically modified viruses, and even the zombie plague that first brought Ledger into the DMS. These terrible weapons have been locked away in the world’s most secure facility. Until now. Joe Ledger and Echo Team are scrambled when a highly elite team of killers breaks the unbreakable security and steals the world’s most dangerous weapons.

    If you could sum up Code Zero in three words, what would they be?

    Fast, violent and suspenseful


    What other book might you compare Code Zero to and why?

    This series stands on its own. The nearest I could compare would be Monster Hunters International but that is as close as I can think of off the top of my head. Both series are well written and both sets of characters are so well written that they each have their own "charisma" to them. If John Mayberry wrote weather reports I would read the damn things. He is that good!


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    Ray Porter is an excellent narrator. One of my personal favorites. You know the character that is speaking immediately. This guy has great talent!


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

    The whole book produces a series of strong reactions. The "Oh hell no!" moments to the times when Ledger says something so sarcastically funny you cannot help but laugh. It is a good read but start from Book 1!

    Would you listen to Kildar again? Why?

    No, once was enough


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the plot was good and quick paced.


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

    The Narration was top notch. Really good when you can easily tell one character from another and the accents were pretty good as well!


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

    The story was good. The pace was good. What John Ringo's fascination with grown men screwing children was as usual the low part of the book for me. He can definitely write but I would have this guy on my neighborhood watch list for sure. How he thinks that adds to the books I have no idea. It's not enough that his character has issues with women of a more consenting age but he has to take it that one step further every time. If the base story and action were not so good I would have dumped this writer by now. In my opinion the writer seems like a scumbag that just so happens can write.

    Jake Taylor was a New Hampshire farm boy who wanted nothing more than to marry his girlfriend, work on the farm, and maybe one day write a great novel. But mankind was fighting the alien Tegeri and their bio-mechanical cyborg soldiers, and UN Central needed men…men to go to war on hostile worlds far from home. Jake wasn't given a choice, not a real one. He found himself torn from home and family, conscripted for life and shipped to the planet Erastus to take his place in the battle lines, never to return.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story and premise are really pretty interesting. Perhaps just a bit more character development leading up to being "recruited/blackmailed" into military service would have added to the story.


    What didn’t you like about Liam Owen’s performance?

    I really felt that Liam Owen was just not suited to this book. After almost 300 audio books I have listened to a great many readers and Liam is simply not that great at voices.


    Was Gehenna Dawn worth the listening time?

    Gehenna Dawn was worth the listen. I got past the narration issues I was having and just immersed myself in the story. Definitely want to see where this goes in the next book!


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely worth the listen. Without giving it away I will say that the price of deceiving the troops will become an expensive mistake.

    In Night Pleasures, Kyrian of Thrace - an immortal who protects humans from vampires - wakes up one morning handcuffed to the one thing that can scare him: a conservative woman in a button-down shirt. But Amanda Devereaux turns out to be his perfect partner for hunting down a deadly foe, and for helping him to regain his soul and learn that love doesn't have to bite.

    "Potential for an interesting story.......lost"
    Overall

    Well written, however, every other page seems to be the two main characters fawning over eachother or having sex, which by the way was well written and descriptive. My problem with the book is that the underlying story is an interesting premise, but the thought that a creature over 2000 years old and a woman somewhere around thirty would be so physically enamored with eachother to the extent in this book is just about juvenile. If there were more balance I would overlook this one aspect of the book, but there is no balance in this book and the story becomes almost an afterthought. She is a best selling author though......amazing.
