She's small. She's quiet. She's deadly. Lou survived the plague that killed her mother. As her father sheltered her from the evil that consumed the world, he taught her how to survive. After an ambush leaves her orphaned, the young, unassuming girl put her skills to the test. A wanderer every bit as brilliant as she is deadly, she forges a new path in the wilderness once known as Texas. But can she do it alone?

I love this series I have every book but sadly they are all just 5 or 5 hours maybe one or two are over the dreaded 6 hour listening time. I wish Lou and Marcus had more time together than 10 minutes. So my review will be short just like the book. See if u can get a friend to share it. This entire series could have been in 3 books not 6

In an impossible situation, our story of a mini ice age starts with hopefulness spanning to heartbreak. How will Bishop and the others survive impossible odds as they seek to bring those they love to shelter. And is the Osprey, and all those on board, truly gone forever? How will Jax and the others make their way on such a perilous journey? The brutality of survival in this post-apocalyptic world leaves little hope for humanity after the Maunder Minimum. Perhaps they're lost after all.

This is the 3rd book in this series and all three were a great read. But I am so tired of these 4 and 5 hour books if I had not already listened to the first 2 I would not have gotten this book because I am refusing to spend a credit for under 8 to 9 hour books. Kevin did a GREAT job as usual. I waited until I had no credits and purchased for 10 $ and change.

Months into the apocalypse, the zombies show no signs of dying, but it's clear everyone in Sunset Park will die without enough food to outlast the undead. Add in the less-than-sociable new neighbors only blocks away, and the hunt for sustenance has come to feel more like a race than a ramble. Sylvie is happy in her new home with the people who've become like family, though she's still working out how to let them into her heart. Eric wants in, and he wants to find his sister, but he can't do both at the same time.

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

Well heck yes I would recommend this book to everyone. I have listened to this 2 book series 4 times in 9 weeks. Get past the fact that there are zombie types in this book and jump in and get to know the people. Who knows you might love it too.

What did you like best about this story?

Sylvie and Eric, no Maria and Jorge, no Grace and Eli ok I liked everything.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Eric and Sylvie were on the bike coming back from the cabin. MUMBLES, STUMBLE, GRIPES the way Eric helped Sylvie grow out of her shell.

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

Never give up

Any additional comments?

Can't wait till the next installment

Sylvie Rossi has the loner thing down pat, with the exception of her best friend, Grace. But when the two are trapped in a hospital during the last gasp of a dying city, alone time is no longer an option. A nurse's offer of sanctuary promises Sylvie the supplies she needs to survive the zombies - it's the coexisting with people that might do her in. Eric Forrest will do whatever it takes to get into the dead city for his sister, including ending up dead himself. He's used to taking risks, but with every mile he travels death looks likelier.

Would you listen to Mordacious again? Why?

At the time of this review I have listened to the two books in the series FOUR (4) times. Yes I said 4 times I guess I could say I can't get enough of the Eric Forrest, Sylvie Rossie, Grace, Paul, Maria, Jorge, through good guy list goes on and on. Then as in all books there is the bad guys whom you grow to HATE. Back to the good guys OMGoodness how you will grow to love them expecially after listening to this book 4 times in 9 weeks. I loved the performances of Luke Daniels and Therese Plummer as narraters. I can't imagine anyone else reading and fortunately they do read Peripeteia (book 2). Mordacious is a side bar so to speak from "Unitil The End Of The World" series all written by my New Favorite Author "Sarah Lyons Fleming" ignore the zombie aspect of the book that is just a military we pon gone wrong the real story is Sylvie learning how to open herself to everything life has to offer and Eric and the gang show her how this is to date one of my favorite books and I believe could be yours. So puch add to cart and introduce yourself to my new friends I hope you are sitting on the edge of your seat as I have been and grow to love this incredible group of survivors who find Family, Forgiveness, Love, Friendship, Faith and Concering Fear while learning how to survive among the worst kind of evil heartless Curney

What other book might you compare Mordacious to and why?

Maybe the Hunger Games or the Walking Dead why: because the real story is about personal growth with a lot of bad guy in the mix oh and some nasty killers

What does Luke Daniels and Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Their voice changes for each character and the depth of emotion that is needed to transport you to the moment. They made the two books in this series come alive I only wish as hard as I can if more books come forth in this series that both Luke and Therese are already booked to read them.

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

The story of Sylvie

Any additional comments?

I emailed Sarah Lyons Fleming and she responded personally or at least I felt it was her not her publishers or HR person just try the book and if u like it then try the Until the End of the world series also with out a dough I will listen to the's again and again they are just that good to me

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am a huge fan, but this book jumped from past to present as much it was hard to keep up I found I kept having to rewind to figure out what I missed. I thought in the Will Trent books Sarah was in love with Jeffery and this book laid out a different reality than the one I belived to be. I can't tell you about the book because I don't remember any of it. My thoughts save your credit. I wish I had

What was most disappointing about Karin Slaughter’s story?

The jumping back and forth from past to present and the relationship between the men in Sarah's life

Did Kathleen Early do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Same as usual

Hornet's Nest, book five in The Blackout Series, tests the mettle of our characters. Will one success lead to devastation for them all? Is it possible for an unlikely group of heroes to band together to defeat an evil which had plagued a small community for decades? And if they are successful, how do you build a world shattered by the devastating aftereffects of a massive solar flare?

What would have made City of Echoes better?

A GOOD STORY I can't tell you very much about this book, well that isn't totally true I do find that I have not been listening for 30 minutes or so and don't want to rewind to see what I missed. The reviews made we buy book 1 & 2 I only hope Love Killings are better, Please Be Better..

What could Robert Ellis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I have no idea..

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

After a while it all just keeps running together..

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from City of Echoes?

I stated above I go for 20 to 30 minutes and realize I wasn't listening and do not want to go back and catch up..

Any additional comments?

I have been disappointed in this book

I love this series I was hoping for a continuation of the first three books but I hope going back to the beginning only means we have to know this information because the series will contains. Saying all that to say these books are not for the faint of heart. They are filled with IT and I believe IT is real because I believe it Jesus and our Lord and they say demons exist. I cried and prayed and shouted and stomped my feet. Don't start here if u are thinking of reading this book make sure you read the other three and read them in order!
