What an amazing story collection! My favorites included Magnum Opus, Letters from my dead wife, I used a dating site once and Tits.

But! Nothing in this well gathered collection will disappoint.

An enjoyment from beginning to the end.

Also the narration was very much on point.

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

Yes I already did. If you like Sci-Fi, Zombie, Alien, or doomsday tales, than this one is great!

What did you like best about this story?

Hearing this story from the infection's POV.

Which character – as performed by Scott Sigler – was your favorite?

Perry Dawsey, by far! Even though you could tell he was pitch shifted down for the role, it didn't take away from the performance at all.

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

I did.

Any additional comments?

I think it is so cool that the author voiced the whole thing. I see a lot of hate about it in other reviews, but it was not a problem for me, in fact it was a giant plus!

Rebecca and Daniel have never met. A 15-year-old preacher's kid and a 16-year-old atheist outcast, they appear to have little in common. And yet they both have attracted the attention of a recruiter for Angel Island, where bad kids go to be remade-or destroyed. Agents of the all-powerful New America Unity Church will stop at nothing to get them. They're building an army, a modern children's crusade, in which Rebecca and Daniel may be just the kind of future leaders they need. If not, they might be just the kind of sacrifice necessary to keep the rest of the faithless in line.

A. R. Meyering has brought a lavishly beautiful dark landscape to light with highly personalities.

Jessica McEvoy does what she does so well, paints the world with her audio brushes, so you can hear it entrance the Canvas of your mind. She gives a longing reality to fantastical written world.

Here's to a sequel. Hopefully.
