A mysterious suicide. Horrific specters walking the streets. A drug that promises to change the world. An apocalyptic cult. Something is stirring in the city of Duluth, Minnesota. Ever since a celebrated researcher announced the creation of a new experimental drug - a drug with the potential to cure the mind of countless ills - people have been disappearing. When a grad student involved with the drug's development unexpectedly commits suicide, a private detective is tasked with unearthing the details of her tumultuous final days. This miracle drug may not be what it seems.

Thrown into danger and carried along by events outside of his control, Jaron discovered that his whole life was only a disguise. His friends weren't who he thought they were, and his father whom he thought was dead, wasn't. In a war of kings, he is the final piece of a plan that started centuries ago. We follow the heroes as Jaron tries to find the strength to become the person everyone else expects him to be.

For years, the biggest threat that Yellowstone was thought to offer was in the form of its semi-dormant super volcano. Little did anyone realize the threat was real and slowly working its way to the surface, but not in the form of magma. Lying deep within the bowels of the Earth itself, an ancient virus waited. Recently credited with the extinction of Neanderthal man, the virus erupts into a crowded Yellowstone. The park is packed with sight seers and party goers during a benefit concert who are all now fodder for the ancient rage virus.

Good beginning to the series. I'm curious about the differences between the people who are scratched and the ones who are bitten. I hope the author will explain it in future books. I've listened to this narrator before and his female voice work has improved. I received this audio book for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

The scene between Jason and the lion was really really intense. There were plenty of intense scenes but that one really stood out for me. I like how the mercenaries in this book wasn't the evil stereotypical men that are usually portrayed in books. I also like how the people in general were portrayed. I was impressed with the narrator.

The would-be Archmage has slain nearly all the magic-users in the world, taking their power for himself. If he succeeds in killing the Lucky Seven's own mage Stratocaster, the Archmage's power will become absolute and plunge the world into darkness under his cruel reign. But not if Mustang Sally and the rest of the Just Cause superheroes have anything to say about it.
