Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Not as good as first book"

    The story went down hill but it's still worth your time and credit.

    Let's hope that ending will fix it all.

    Story
    "Michael Talbot, our hero, is back"

    I haven’t read the first Indian Hill book but I am going to. You really should start this series with the first book. In the Reckoning you pick up were the first book left off.

    Michael Talbot, our hero, is back on earth and he knows that the Progerians are coming and what they plan for our small world. They have done the same thing on many other worlds. However, they have never fought Humans before.

    This book is more about the results of the first alien attack and the aftermath of the destruction of the military and government. Without rules, chaos.

    This book shows how fast everything can fall apart. The three story lines involve Mike, now 21, Deb and Beth, and Paul. Deb and Beth are the two young women that Mike loves. They were on the alien ship with him and other humans. Paul is Mike’s best friend. They grew up together. Paul thought that Mike had been killed and he had started to put together a secret army to fight the aliens.

    The story goes back and forth from one character to the other showing what each of them has had to do to survive. Civilization has collapsed and this is humanity at its worst. Remains of National Guard and Police try to keep some balance of order but the dregs are taking over.

    Mr. Tufo has added depth to his characters in this book. You can love,hate, pity, and despise them all at the same time. Lots of action and blood shed and a last page that will leave you ……

    This audio book was read by Sean Runnette. He has a wonderful voice and his narration was exciting. He gave life to the characters with feeling. He performed each character with just the right expression and emotion. Excellent rendition.

    The audio production was also excellent. Every word was clear. No static or unwanted skips.

    Audiobook provided for review by the publisher.

    Story
    "Don't!"

    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

    "Just plain fun"
    What made the experience of listening to Reckoning the most enjoyable?

    I've read or listened to almost all of Marc Tufo's stuff, having more Mike Talbot, who is just a great character, is absolutely fantastic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mike Talbot. He's got a great wit. He's strong. He thinks beyond himself even while he's broken and in pain. In these books, he is kinda like a super hero, standing up against the aliens and those who chose to use the situation to bring out their worst. In the grans scheme, it really is the adverse moments that show humanity, not the perfect peace times.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Sean is consistent. His voice is great and his capturing of characters is inspired.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Aliens, welcome to earth. Aliens, Meet Mike Talbot.

    "Its Not Bad."

    What put me off reading this book were the reviews, so many people said it was really bad... But its not.. it was a good book, showing the aftermath of the Aliens attacks... it was slow and some low points ... but it was not a bad book... There are few things here and there that could have been done better...

    In my opinion, this series could have been done in a different way and could have been much better.. Am a fan of Mark Tufo, and really a big fan of the zombie fallout series, but wish this series was as good as the zombie one.

    Story
    "Ignore the Elephant in the Room!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have probably read about a dozen Mark Tufo books, and in general I like them very much. For this one, where the major story is an alien invasion, we seem to talk about most everything OTHER than the aliens. This reads more like Zombie Fallout then it does a book about aliens. I mean, seriously, do we have to have the "humans turn crazy and mean" and then spend half the book on that?


    Has Reckoning turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't read the rest of this serious. I am a big Mike Talbot fan, but this series is just silly.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Great narration. Love his voice. He IS Mike Talbot. Just give him a better script.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Great narration. Mike Talbot is great. Too bad this book didn't have very much Michael Talbot.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Tufo, I think one reason so many of the scenes in this book sound like the scenes in your other books is because you have too many series going on and can't keep them all straight. Quality, not quantity.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone


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

    Mike Talbot


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't think I would enjoy the indian Hill Series, but thought I would give it a try because I enjoyed the Zombie Fallout series so much. I was pleasantly Surprised that I enjoyed it just as much as the zombie Fall out series. Mark Tufo is a talent writer and Sean Runnette is a great narrator.

    Story
    "This is great and brutal. Captures human depravity"
    Where does Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a great second book to the series. Mark likes a good cliffhanger.If you gives this book a try you will have to get the third book. Mark really shows how terrible humans are in the story line. In some points in the book I feel like we are no better that are foes.But not all is last are good humanity will shine in the end......


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of this book is how Mark shows us the way humanity turns in the aftermath of an alien invasion...Not our proudest moment..


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    Sean performance is pretty good. I hear an accent, maybe he is doing on purpose.Overall I enjoy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    To win you have to let go of a little humanity

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes if on special, Book 1 was a great and total story .. Book 2 is an attempt to milk money from the series it is not a whole story it is really half a book only.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    have it as a self contained story


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    story was good but a lot more predicable

    All other Mark Tuffo's works

    "addictive!"

    I am a massive fan of Mark Tufo's books. I The Indian Hill series is another great story. I loved the Zombie Fallout series and this adds another dimension to Mike Talbot's life.



    Mark keeps you engaged with the story and always makes you want to read more. This book goes deeper into Mike's experience on the ship and really digs deep into his personality.



    A must for all Mike Talbot fans.
