In a steel-and-lead-encased bunker 20 feet below the basement level of his house, a soldier waits for his final orders. On the surface, a plague ravages the planet, infecting over 90% of the populace. The bacterium burrows through the brain, destroying all signs of humanity and leaving behind little more than base, prehistoric instincts. The infected turn into hyper-aggressive predators, with an insatiable desire to kill and feed. Someday soon, the soldier will have to open the hatch to his bunker, and step out into this new wasteland, to complete his mission....

Excellent series as who really knows but we know people they will kill for a can of cat food to survive. Can we really trust our government or people who all they want is power hum like Clinton. They will do anything to be a true dictator over the people and to control you. Why is the answer so this book highlights this. Just be ready for the unknown, we are.

Would you listen to Victory's Defeat again? Why?

Great book and I have listen the book probably twice as going back making sure I did not miss anything. I wonder how long there luck will keep going as Mike pushes it to the limits. BT has faith in Mike as well D and Tracey. Beth well she is or wants to be the leader but I think her new spider friends will have her for dinner and she will be the main course as she thinks she will rule a new world. I see her death coming soon either by the spiders or Mike.

What other book might you compare Victory's Defeat to and why?

Nothing comes to mind as Marks books are one of a kind. Why compare.

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

Hell all of them but Sean your voice changed a little bit. We a re huge fan of yours. Hope all is good for you.

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

Yes but cannot I have a life I like to listen to this vs. the crazy fake news.

Any additional comments?

Mark keep up the good work you have to fans in my household and I do not know why they do not make a TV series out of Fallout and Lycian. Be good for ten years of good content.

Picking up where The First Days ends, Fighting to Survive features the further zombie-killing, civilization-saving adventures of a pair of sexy, kick butt heroines and the men who love them. A hundred or so survivors of the zombie plague have found tenuous safety in the walled off center of a small Texas town. Now the hard work of survival begins - finding enough food; creating safe, weather-resistant shelter; establishing laws; and fighting off both the undead who want to eat them and the living bandits who want to rob and kill them.

Rampaging hordes of Genogerians plague the planet, as does an invasion from Progerians hell-bent on knuckling under the will of man through their relentless assault. Yet this may not be the worst of it, as an insidious "ally" has lent their support. At what cost can a planet on the brink come back from such desperate odds?

Five stars as this book will have you cheering on Mike and his team, get angry at Paul and bitch Beth. Aliens will pick the Alligators as they need to make up their mind about their freedom. There are times your eyes will tear up as you with Mike and his team when one of them dies that is you have emotions, no worry if you are in you car I laugh. It is okay. Shows you are human as Mike would say.
