    "It all comes together in Book 3!"

    Well, having invested several weeks listening to Jonathan Mayberry drag the reader through a rough first volume in Ghost Road Blues, and begin to mature as both a writer and storyteller in Book 2, Dead Man's Song, he finally hit his stride in Book 3 of The Pine Deep Trilogy, Bad Mon Rising. Not only is the plotting much more fluid but the overall storytelling has greatly improved since Book 1, and Mr. Mayberry throws every gruesome thing he can come up with at the reader as he brings all the warewolves, vampires of various kinds (including the zombie-esque "dead heads") and some new characters that liven up the storyline into the mix to make for a much faster paced and much, much more entertaining end to his trilogy of novels. I've beat on Mr. Weiner, the reader, in the previous two volumes' reviews for his stilted way of interpreting the story and it's characters, so I feel obliged to give him props in this final book as he seemed to have gained a better idea of how to read horror fiction. Again, fair warning: when I used the word "gruesome", I meant it. Even for horror fiction, which I've been reading since my youth, I don't think I've read/listened to a more overall dark and bloody story than Bad Moon Rising, not even in all the zombie fiction I read. No readers, this one is downright, well, gruesome! I hope that one day Mr. Mayberry will revisit Pine Deep now that his writing abilities have found their stride in the horror & thriller genres represented in the Joe Ledger series. So if you have made it through Books 1 & 2 of The Pine Deep Trilogy, you will be rewarded with this final installment. Just don't listen while eating. Never while eating.

    "Meh."

    I finally made it through the entire trilogy! Wish I would have just picked up the book at the library and not spent credits on the trilogy. Some of the material is wordy and repetitive, probably could have edited it a great deal and just made the trilogy a two part novel. The story was "meh" (all three combined, meh). Tom Weiner the narrator did all he could do with the material; he was very consistent in the entire trilogy. Seemed like a looooong build up to the finale.

    "Goodbye To Pine Deep"

    For now, anyway.
    Bad Moon Rising continues where the second installment left off. While it's not completely necessary that you listen to the first two books in the series (I found the first to be the weakest), the extra investment of time might be worth it.
    Although I enjoyed BMR and thought it a worthy end to the series, one thing that I didn't enjoy was Maberry's use of B-Movie celebrities as minor characters. Unless it's necessary, I don't like it when authors do that, because, as opposed to characters of the author's own invention, you know that nothing drastic will happen to these people. No matter what happens to all the "fake" characters around them, they will make it through the story with absolutely no change (inside or out) from when they were first introduced.
    This is a fun story, and if you've made it 2/3rds of the way in--why not finish?

    "I finally finished the series"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I am a huge fan of Jonathan Mayberry and the Joe ledger series. I made an assumption that this series would be the same quality of the Ledger series. Story didn't keep me captivated. Too many vulgarities. I am not offended my vulgarities if there it fits a situation that you can imagine using them. This series the hidden agenda appeared to be how many the writer can use in the story. I can not suggest this series should be read. A waste of time and money.


    What could Jonathan Maberry have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Better plot development and less confusing on to characters.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bad Moon Rising?

    Clean up the language and make the mythical creature something that seemed possible. I know that the whole idea of Zombies, vampires, and werewolf's are a bit difficult to believe. But his other books the characters seemed logical,

    Story
    "Good story that keeps moving"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend. The story which is all three books, moves along. The reader does a good job of voices and gets you into the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to say. Vic Wingate was portrayed greatly as someone you want to hate...


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

    His voices made you feel the character's emotions.


    If you could rename Bad Moon Rising, what would you call it?

    Hell night has cometh.
