Bobby does a fabulous job in all his novels of navigating his heroes away from the disaster and toward a place they think they will be safe. Book two of this series takes our heroes on an odyssey away from Yellow Stone.

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.

American political leaders failed to heed the warnings as two bullies of the world unite. North Korea and Iran - the Axis of Evil - bring the battle to American soil. Most of the country is without power, and the new president must decide whether to retaliate and risk escalation of hostilities or focus on recovery to minimize loss of life. Through careful, prudent planning and protection of their power grid, the state of Texas emerged relatively unscathed from the EMP attack. But what now?

Book two of the Lone Star series is Bobby’s best book to date. Book one introduced the characters and set the stage. Book two picks up in the middle of the EMP disaster, with the main characters in Canada, North Korea, Texas and DC.
Fans of international intrigue, apocalyptic science fiction, political trillers and adventure drama will love the Lone Star series.

Geophysicist Jack Greer believes he may finally have found the resting place of the meteorite that wiped out the dinosaurs sixty-five million years ago. A few miles off the Yucatán coast, Jack and a team of scientists tow an aging drilling platform over the impact crater with the aim of securing a sample. But buried deep beneath the earth lies a shocking discovery that threatens to shatter everything we think we know about the origins of our species.

For decades, American administrations have forced our military to be neutered in many respects - hampered by restrained rules of engagement, passed in strength by Russia and China, and tested by rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. As a result, nuclear Armageddon hangs over us like a mighty sword. Military analysts agree that the United States can't start World War III. Why? We might lose. Sabers are rattling, and the war of words escalate between America and her enemies....

Author Bobby Akart the book is awesome. I love the characters. Sean did a great job with the reading. I’ve listened to several of his readings, and it always takes me a minute to adjust to him. He did a nice job with the character voices and made the seem very real. I look forward to the next book in the series. Btw, I’ll leave this review on audible too.
Our volunteers are looking great; I hope we do well in the SEC tournament.

There is no such thing as an ending, just a new beginning. Throughout the millennia, extinction has been the norm and survival, the exception. When faced with the hour of departure, will mankind fight to survive? Not only was there a patient zero, there was also a last patient.

As the world falls into anarchy the worst comes out of some and best out of others. Government disaster plans are used to serve the ambitions of the crooked political leadership. Our heroes find themselves caught between trying to do good in a crooked system and doing what's best for them, their new family, and their country.

This book will leave you shaking your head at the depravity of men, and wanting the next book to be released.

And so it begins, the virus enters on the quiet feet of The Innocents. It invades each and every one of us. But, they say, plagues are like fires. At some point, they burn themselves out. Or not. Fear and rumor can be far more dangerous than the virus itself.

Akart does a fantastic job of showing both the deadliness of the disease and the ineptness of political leaders effort to contain the disease. In The innocents, we the story focus on Hunter and Mac as a couple, as they continue to search for the terrorist and a vaccine.

Would you consider the audio edition of Pandemic: Beginnings to be better than the print version?

Yes, the readers do a great job. I felt like the readers where very in character.

What did you like best about this story?

The "beggings" sends time developmenting and laying out the deadliness of the virus. If you love medical thrillers, Counter-terror adventures, and end of the world books, you will love the Pandemic series.

What does John David Farrell and Kris Adams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Yes, the readers do a great job. I felt like the readers where very in character.

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

Yes, the moment when the ms14 gang attack Hunter and Max.

Any additional comments?

In this short book illuminated by a deep understanding and love of humanity, John Steinbeck retells an old Mexican folk tale: the story of the great pearl, how it was found, and how it was lost. For the diver Kino, finding a magnificent pearl means the promise of a better life for his impoverished family. His dream blinds him to the greed and suspicions the pearl arouses in him and his neighbors, and even his loving wife cannot temper his obsession or stem the events leading to the tragedy. For Steinbeck, Kino and his wife illustrate the fall from innocence of people who believe that wealth erases all problems.
