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 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.
Busy working mom who depends on audio books to get me through dinner preparations and prevent road rage!
the story always keeps you on the edge of your seat. struggled a few times to keep up with switching locations... I am usually doing other things while listening.... but love the storytelling
I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.
Another great series from Tufo/Runnette! I'm getting caught up on reviews. This is for the first 5 in the series. I loved them all with the exception of #3, which under-delivered for me, but was still great. I like Zombie Fallout series best still, but I highly recommend this one as well. If you are familiar with Tufo's other works, then many of the names and personalities will be familiar. He sticks with winning combinations and just changes the situations these characters find themselves in. Get the series!
Great story, a little slow in places but overall an amazing story line. If you like Mark & Shawn narrative then you will enjoy this book. I've already purchased the 3rd book.
I think this book will do it for me for the Indian Hill series and maybe I'll just look for a synopsis somewhere. The first book was amusing but this book was like one long "coming attraction." Pretty much nothing happens. There are some action sequences and such but it's really a long haul. Also, it's getting deep into the teen angsty thing and the entire Deb/Beth/Mike thing is really way, way too played out. People die and I'm pretty much not moved emotionally at all.
I have to say I'm really not a fan of the narrator. He could be good in other books but he doesn't sound anywhere near like a catholic kid from Boston. Not even close and the voice just doesn't match up with the heroics that the character ends up performing.
Anyway, I'm pretty tired of this book and cannot see myself sticking around for 4 more of the same.
not worth the 5 credits you have to pay to finish 1 book I quit after 2 books when i realized to finish I would have to use 3 more credits. Story stops in the middle so you have to pay again to continue.
