College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran-and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

Cash is alive. But who knows how bad he's hurt. There was an explosion, and he won't wake up. It's the phone call that any Titan wife dreads, and the one that brings Nicola Garrison to her knees in tears. Crying and praying for Cash to wake up, she has one secret to tell him and now it might be too late. "I'm pregnant. You're going to be a daddy." Practicing the words a million times didn't matter if he wasn't coming home.

I loved the 1st two books in this series and was thrilled to see a third. I didnt even bother looking at length or reading any reviews.

listened to the story and am so dang disappointed.... there's barely anything to this. nothing to real you in, leave you hooked and addicted. it talks about characters from the other books but ties nothing together this book is highly lacking in story in many ways

Fritz vanished just after an argument over Matthias' breaking of the school's honor code, and Matthias has long been haunted by the idea that his betrayal led to his friend's disappearance. When he is offered the opportunity to return to Blackburne as an English teacher, he sees it as a chance to put his life back together.

there was such a storyline and climax, leading you to believe there was still a ton of "adventure" to be had... but then... it dies... loses all its steam and the climax it was seeming to build up to just is gone. Very very disappointed in the ending
