The zombie apocalypse is not forgiving, especially in the world of The Orphans. A group of teens, against all odds, continue to survive against the challenges presented to them in a world where the rules have changed and the Turned are trying to devour them. These are not your typical slow zombies, these zombies are fast, strong, and by far the smartest that you will encounter. Don't miss Strangers!

Mr. Wallen did a great job of giving us other ideas about Frankenstein, and his narration of the story was one of the best I've listened to from him

For Michael Roberts, it started out as just another day. Little did he know that when the first siren went off, his world would be plunged into hell. Bitten and infected, you must now experience the horror through Michael's eyes as he lives out what could become his final day.

He made everyone think he was dead. The Police told everyone that it was safe again. Safe to go outside, safe to lead a normal life. The problem? They were all wrong! The Stranger is back with a thirst for blood, and a sick, twisted desire to kill, torture, and maim. If you thought book one was gruesome, you were sadly mistaken. Book two is a high-octane extreme horror thriller like you have not heard before. Very few boundaries were left untouched. The one question, can the Stranger be stopped finally?

The best part about a book, is that moment you can put it down, and say at least that can't happen in real life, until now. The Uninvited will leave you checking your doors, locking your windows and skipping the weekend camping trip. Meet the stranger, a killer who is unbiased about who it chooses to be the victim, and never tires of the killing. If Dexter and Leatherface had a baby, The Uninvited would be their offspring.

Mike Evans does a great job of going from the zombie genre to the horror genre with this book. Scares that come when you least expect it. once you start reading it you wont put it down until your done

Frank Fox lost his wife to cancer eight years ago. He'd been recruited to work on a classified mission for a cure, which could have saved tens of thousands. On the verge of success, his wife unexpectedly lost her battle. He was sent home to care for his young son, Shaun, who still holds resentment today. Now, when a second chance at love holds promise, she tells him that she too is dying of cancer. Frank vows to cure her, not knowing of the deadly results and government cover-up that took place almost a decade earlier.

What made the experience of listening to The Orphans the most enjoyable?

the characters and their back stories

What other book might you compare The Orphans to and why?

I cant say any other book could be compared to the orphanes book 1

The best scene was the hospital when Dr. Fox administered the cure for cancer

it made me think what would i do for my family in a crisises like this

Any additional comments?

Mike makes you wanna like each of his characters from the start then he builds them up for you to love them and hate anything bad that happens to them
