On his last combat deployment, Lt. Cmdr. James Reece's entire team was killed in an ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government. Now, with no family and free from the military's command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward revenge.

In this stirring prequel, New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe returns to the “cold-blooded yet fascinating” ( Publishers Weekly) character from her acclaimed novel The Upper Room. Ruby is a wild youth, with a thirst for boys and booze by the age of 15. When she discovers she’s pregnant, the only person she can confide in is her best friend Othella. But Othella talks Ruby into giving up the child, leaving Ruby emotionally shattered and adamant that Othella is to blame for her loss.

This last book in the Tim series had the perfect ending. How does Mark Tufo come up with this stuff. Sean Runnnette as the narrator in this series was nothing like the other books but still great. Tim's no Mike Talbot. You can't hide from Tim he ain't your average Zombie. He's worst. Mark Tufo is short for Hannibal Lector. :-) Love you man!

This is the story of Michael Talbot, his family, and his friends: a band of ordinary people trying to get by in extraordinary times. When disaster strikes, Mike, a self-proclaimed survivalist, does his best to ensure the safety and security of those he cares for. Book one of the Zombie Fallout Trilogy follows our lead character at his self-deprecating, sarcastic best. What he encounters along the way leads him down a long dark road, always skirting the edge of insanity.

It looked like another ordinary day in Los Angeles. Then night came...Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angels - it comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determination - and the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.

What did you love best about Left Behind?

It is so compelling. If you don't know the Bible you will.

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

I would make It a T.V. series instead. Each episode could follow the book and every episode title would be named like the book titles. It would be a must see every week.

Any additional comments?

Ferone is a better narrator than Sondericker. Sondericker made the Zion and Albie characters sound like little old German shoemakers. These are very strong charaters. After Ferone stops narrating for the rest of the book series I would choose Frank Muller. His Nicolei impression sounds a little like Count Chocola and he kept saying Ze On instead of Zion but I got used to it. Frank Muller made the rest of the characters sound just as good as Ferone.
