Midnight Gulch used to be a magical place, a town where people could sing up thunderstorms and dance up sunflowers. But that was long ago, before a curse drove the magic away. Twelve-year-old Felicity knows all about things like that; her nomadic mother is cursed with a wandering heart. But when she arrives in Midnight Gulch, Felicity thinks her luck's about to change. A "word collector", Felicity sees words everywhere - shining above strangers, tucked into church eaves, and tangled up her dog's floppy ears - but Midnight Gulch is the first place she's ever seen the word "home".

The finale of the Zombie Road tale. It's been a month since the outbreak, and the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have started a new life in a walled city. There are still a few enemies that need to be dealt with, the kind that can think and plan, and they can be more devastating than a horde of the undead.

The people that tried to kill the world almost succeeded. They were fiendishly clever but they didn't take into account the vets, the truckers, and the two-fisted fighters who didn't know how to give up. Gunny and his band of survivors continue their journey along the Zombie Road, saving as many as they can along the way. They power through the undead hordes with their modified semi-trucks to beat the ticking clock of nuclear meltdowns.

And extraordinarily awesome zombie apocalypse story. Outstanding cast of characters very well written and a page turner from beginning to end. I read the book and I listen to the audiobook. Both are outstanding. Listening to an audiobook the narrator gives a voice to all of the different characters in a book. The author is extensively knowledgeable on everything he writes. It makes it a believable tell even though it is an imagined story. The narrator does an outstanding job as well and brings the story to life. If you like zombie apocalypse books this series is a definite must read and must listen to. Check them all out

When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry. In his first ever Divination class, Professor Trelawney sees an omen of death in Harry's tea leaves.... But perhaps most terrifying of all are the Dementors patrolling the school grounds, with their soul-sucking kiss....

As with the first book the world of Harry Potter is an amazing and extraordinary place. Everyone should read the book and everyone should listen to the audiobook with Jim Dale as the narrator. He brings all of the characters to life and in many cases sounds nearly identical to the characters in the movies. You will not be disappointed great for all ages
