Indian Hill 2: Reckoning starts where the first book in the series left off. After escaping from the Progerian Alien vessel, Michael Talbot is now given the opportunity to hide in obscurity with the rest of the human race or rise to the occasion and once again find himself immersed in a battle that he wants nothing to do with.
Mike goes home and while reconnecting with a family that believed him dead he decides to join whatever resistance force can be mustered to repel the oncoming invasion. As the world of man gets thrust towards the abyss of extinction, two women in love with the same man make a desperate bid to travel across the country to reunite with him.
Mike will suffer the ultimate betrayal from those he loves the most. Will mankind fall and be ground to dust like so many other civilizations or will the tiny humans thwart a takeover? Only time, and shed blood will tell.

I think mark let his wife write this book, felt like a cheesy love story. 'Oh every ones dead or dying I hope mike still loves me'. I can only hope Indian hill 3 drops the Beth storyline.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
The story and the narration of course! lol
There are a few....when Deb dies, when Paul just meaninglessly orders the execution of innocent people...and The end!!!!
Yep...love him...again I will say...HE IS MICHAEL TALBOT!!!!!!!!!
I hate this question...moving on!
This started a tad slow for me...but 2hrs in I was super hooked! I love love love Mark's writing...listening to his books being read by Sean are like visiting with an old familiar friend...I know what to expect..but am pleasantly surprised sometimes...I laugh, I cry, I scream out loud...sometimes I just shake my head and smile..This was a great installment and I am moving on to the 3rd one...I have been marathoning Tufo's book all month...I just cant get enough....lol I do need to say...Paul...pissed me off...I just really dont like Beth...I dont see what Mike sees in her....and I am so glad Mike is ok...that is all....2 thumbs up!!!
Every other Mark Tufo book I've rated 5 stars across the board. Even book one in this series was just awesome. I can't express how much I hated this book without spoilers. I hope book three does something to resurrect this series which started so fantastically.
Story line had potential but... The Author has no concept of large scale action, strategy, combat or anything else that would have made these books readable. The story lines go from allowing the Characters to mature to reverting to stupid beyond belief and nothing is consistent. First there are millions of aliens with 200 plus iQs on an indestructible ship then only thousands of stupid incompetent lizards.
DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
They are perfect together. Marks words leave me on the edge of my seat, And Sean's verbal interpretation is spot on. I may have to sell the family farm, but I'm going to buy as many book as these two can produce.
I don't want to spoil anything but tufo must hate the human race, almost everyone in this book is despicable.. I understand there are a lot of jerks in the world but tufo's depiction of the apocalypse is rife with the worst of the worst.. I don't think the characters ever run into anyone with a conscience. Even national guardsmen are no more then a gang of thugs.. Pauls story almost made me turn this off and I have read every tufo book there is so far, this series being my last. The twist with Paul didn't make any sense either since mike was quarantined by the military upon arrival (assume an MRI would be standard) but anyway at least in the ZF books mike occasionally ran into decent people.. In this it seems like everyone just sucks.. So aside from mike and maybe the girls every other character was just terrible. Makes me sick of hearing it.. Almost like the news media. I am going to give the next book a chance but this one is truly a low point for me with Tufo. Sean Runnette is great as always.
I love everything I have read from Tufo. As a retired veteran and Colorado resident, I was able to picture the story in stark clarity. Tufo does an exceptional job in capturing the human condition and mindset of a person in the military. I have audibly laughed more than a few times while listening to his books. Well worth the credits!
In this book...and from the last...I despise Beth. She is weak, worthless, and embodies some of the not so great parts I see in some American women. If I can melt into the story and be moved to care about the characters...the author is gold in my book.
I will definitely finish the series.
