This America Falls box set collect the first three books in the series. The story is about a virus that has eradicated almost all of the adult population in the United States leaving the young to fend for themselves. The plot is well crafted and full of intrigue, mystery and action. The narrator did a good job.

War is hell....but sometimes it's also funny as hell.

Combat and Other Shenanigans is Lieutenant Piers Platt's firsthand account of his year as a cavalry platoon leader in Iraq. Wry, action-packed, and poignant, Combat and Other Shenanigans is the absurd-but-true story of the antics the world's finest soldiers get up to when no one high-ranking is watching

Kale Drayton knows his place. As a Ringer born on Titan, he's used to keeping his head down and his mouth shut--no matter how much the Earthers abuse him or his own kind berate him. So, when he's caught stealing from a wealthy merchant, he's lucky to be sentenced to low-paying maintenance work on a gas-harvesting ship instead of life in a cell... or worse. But when his mother is quarantined, Kale finds himself backed into a corner.
