Mike reunites with his wife and his friend, Paul, aboard the Guardian only to find that things have gone from bleak to hellish on earth. 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?

Every installment in the Indian Hill series continues to out shine the previous ones. This one is no exception. I have listened to it and the others many times as I love them, they never get old. Great action, love, humor, deception, well rounded in every aspect. sean's narration is perfect. I am really spoiled by him and the books he does. I catch myself listening to other books not narrated by & wishing they were. Nothing against the others but as I said Sean has me spoiled.

I enjoy other books by Bobby Adair. His Slow Burn series really kept me hooked. I can see this one doing the same. The audible rendition most times were good however there were a few where the narrative lacked and seemed a bit monotone. I would still recommend and will listen to it in the future.

I read this book a while ago and loved it, had to have the Audable version. This book is so good. I don't put spoilers in my reviews. I will tell you this book will make you laugh, feel great friendship, and make you cry. There will be characters which really push your buttons, others you can't help but love. Some things in this story will keep you on the edge of your seat,trying to figure out at what is going on.
It's an excellent story that will pull you in and won't let you go. I highly recommend it! Stephen King fans will love it.

From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.

Maleficent was a different sort of faerie. For one thing she was raised by all the Fair Folk after her parents were killed. For another she believed there had to be some good in everyone, even humans. Happy and spirited, Maleficent was beloved by all who knew her. That is until she experienced the ultimate betrayal by a trusted friend.

Where does Maleficent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of my favorites. I had borrowed it from the library many times till I could get my own. I listen to it often and I adore it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Maleficent?

There are many memorable moments in Maleficent. I am trying to pick just one but there are many that I am not sure I can pick just one. But I really do love when Maleficent tries to reverse the curse because she has come to love Aurora.

What does Lucy Rayner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She just really brings it alive.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Maleficent kisses Aurora after proclaiming her love for her. A mother's love. The truest love.

Any additional comments?

I adore this book and I love listening to it often. Audible makes it so easy for me to take it with me on walks, or when I'm cleaning, when ever I decide I want to listen to it instead of music. Thank you for this gift.

One fateful decision - that is all it takes to either unravel all the Talbot clan has achieved or fulfill their desire for safety. Many are lost, though others return; this is the story of their struggle to survive and in remembrance of those left behind.

What made the experience of listening to Those Left Behind the most enjoyable?

As always Sean Runnette is perfect for Mark's books! I could not imagine anyone else doing it any better! He voice is awesome. The different tones, accents, everything. Sean brings Mark's wonderful characters to life and makes you feel as if you are right there with them!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Those Left Behind?

*giggle* I won't go into the gross details but the bathroom scene with Trip. OMG that man is so funny but that part had me dying. Just when you think he can't make you shake your head more and say "No way!" he does something to top himself.

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The only perfomances of Sean's I have listened to have been of Mark Tufo's books but there have been a lot. So far all four Lycan Fallout Series, ten of the Zombie Fallout, five of the Indian Hill series but also Spirit Clearing (awesome book). Oh Riley 5 and the two A Shrouded World series. All of these are Mark Tufo's books. If Sean has narrated for other authors I haven't heard those as of yet. He is wonderful though!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are many moments in all of Mark's books that move me so it's hard to pin point just one.

Any additional comments?

I am very happy that Audible offers Mark's books for me to download and listen to on my devices. As I suffer from chronic migraines sometimes reading hurts so I am able to listen to my favorite books. As well as when I am at the gym or doing other things when listening to a book is a better option. Thank you Audible!!!!

The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung... Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win.

Would you listen to Lycan Fallout again? Why?

Of course I would and have listened to it several times. It's another great series by Mark Tufo!

What did you like best about this story?

I love the fact that this is a futuristic continuation of Michael Talbot but different from the Zombie Fallout Series.

Which scene was your favorite?

Wow I don't know how to pick just one favorite scene because there are many. If I had to pick one I would say it is when Tommy brings Mike a puppy for "food" and Mike cussing Tommy out for making him care about something or someone again.

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

Not your typical Lycan movie! Get ready for a Lycan future that will blow you away...

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo is a great Independent author whose books really grab you and never let go! I absolutely love his books and different Series. I highly recommend his books to everyone who loves great books.

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.

Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.
