Love the story line, and the character development. It has similarities to other LitRPGs, but stands on its own solidly. Looking forward to continuing the saga.

Amazing series, immense detail, great character development. Read the first 7 books back to back, and they left me thirsty for more.

Would you consider the audio edition of Riley V to be better than the print version?

Yes, Sean Runnette has been with multiple series put out by Mark Tufo, and knows exactly how Tufo wants his characters to sound.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Patches, the snarky old gal is more resourceful and dangerous than anyone could imagine. Thorngrasp is a close second.

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

Yes, Sean Runnette is amazing as always.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and I did.

Any additional comments?

Tufo can't write fast enough. His books are like delicious candy I can not hold myself back from, not even if it were a clown that were passing it out.

Amazing Talbot adventure

Where does Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right there at the top with the rest of Mark Tufo's books

What was one of the most memorable moments of Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes?

The descriptions of friendship between Mike and his Big Green friend and their banter with one another always gets me.

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

Sean Runnette has been the voice of Michael Talbot, and many other Mark Tufo books, for so long, I honestly can't imagine anyone else doing it justice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed so hard other people on the road looked over to see what the heck I was doing.

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo does it again. His continued chronicles of Michael Talbot weave an extraordinary adventure of excitement and trepidation in this, yet another wild ride, which I can not get enough of. Thank you Mark, and please keep writing.

What made the experience of listening to Tim2 the most enjoyable?

I actually got to do it all in one day on a long drive.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot, the descriptions, the action, all of it was one gorefest after another.

Which scene was your favorite?

Eating, really it all comes down to the buffet

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

Well there was an epic bowel movement. I mean a Zombie eats and eats and eats all that flesh, something has to happen to it eventually. Tufo is the first author to go there; except maybe a truely wacko proctologist. Does that count?

What did you love best about Inferno?

I like the continuing adventures of Robert and this one had a unique twist considering the injury he had sustained before the book even begins.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I was unsure who to trust, but at times I felt like it was a bit too much. In the end it all pans out logically, but for a minute or two audiances are left to wonder.

What about Paul Michael’s performance did you like?

Great.

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

Find the Dante within.

Any additional comments?

Enjoyed the book, but Brown's previous entries into the saga were better.

If you could sum up Callis Rose in three words, what would they be?

Professor X as a teenage girl.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Callis Rose?

The family circumstances that launched Callis on her road through the system.

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

Yes, it is just as good as his other works. I was worried since this is from a female perspective, but he did really well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wish I had the time but had to break it up over three days.

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo is amazing, keep writing!
