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.

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
1*=I didn't like it..... 2*=It was OK...... 3*=It was good but I will never read it again.......... 4*=Maybe I will read it again in the future.............. 5*=I will definitely read it again(maybe more than once)
The story went down hill but it's still worth your time and credit.
Let's hope that ending will fix it all.
Unfortunately, I believe Sean Runnette has ruined me with audio book tastes... I can't listen to anyone else... It's really really sad... Sean Runnette is such a pimp, and really brings all the characters to life.
Durgan is my favorite character because he is a great villan.
Any of the Pregarian's are my favorite. He really makes them creepy.
This book just makes you want to root for humanity.
MARK TUFO IS ONE OF THE BEST AUTHOR'S OF ALL TIME!
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.
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.
Sean is consistent. His voice is great and his capturing of characters is inspired.
Aliens, welcome to earth. Aliens, Meet Mike Talbot.
I usually don't write a negative review because I feel the author has worked hard to do something most of us have never done -and that is to publish a book. But this book really needs to come with a warning. The first of the series wasn't as bad as this one. What do I mean by bad? I felt that this was a filler book that was written quickly for no other reason but to make it a three book series. The writing and events are all over the place. There is sometimes no reasoning for the characters actions. It was as if everyone in the story was bipolar and without their meds for too long. One minute a character would be feeling one way and the next a complete different without anything that could have provoked such a change. I found myself not relating to anyone because they were all so paper thin. The writing is overloaded with cliched dialogue. The author clearly doesn't understand the way the military works. My only emotion was that I found myself feeling sorry for the narrator. I was not able to complete this book. I've read, or listened to, hundreds of books, and I can say without any doubt that this one was by far the worst in every way possible.
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.
Yes, like all of Tufo's books the more you listen the more you pick up you missed the last time.
When Paul sees Mike for the first time, also when Mikes dad relizes it is his son driving up the way! There was crying.
Sean is Mike, always.
Mike Talbot fighting for the human race, and winning, always by accidental luck!
Amazing as always Mr. Tufo.
I do love the story and Mike is so funny at times even when things seem that they couldn't be worse. I am rooting for United Earth Marine Corp. It makes you think about what it would be like if something like that really happened here on Earth.. The only thing I don't like is how long and drawn out some of the explaining of what people are thinking is. I get bored and find my thoughts wandering. I am on book three now and can't wait to see how it unfolds!!
Book two in the Indian Hill story is defiantly a must from Mark Tufo and Mike Talbot fans a like. Reckoning continues the fight for earth and while not as good as book 1 it delivers in every way you would expect. Sean Runnette does another wonderful job are narrating the book. Look forward to finishing number 3
It's not a Zombie series, however, it's just as fun.
I had to get all three, and read them this weekend.
Even though Mike is back in the middle of things, and some of the background is taken from Tufo's other series, this set was a real treat.
I hope there will be a book four.
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.
