Nothing stops former Navy SEAL and Tier One operator John Dempsey from answering the call of duty - including a mission with the highest stakes he's ever faced. When one of the most brazen and lethal acts of terrorism rocks American and Israeli intelligence forces at the highest levels, Dempsey's ultracovert antiterror unit, Ember, mobilizes. But this operation isn't just a retaliatory strike by Ember; it's a mission of vengeance for Dempsey.

Each book of this series has gotten better thus far, and as always Ray Porter's performance was remarkable.

Ever since her mother's death, Gabriella "Gutsy" Gomez has spent her days flying under the radar. But when her mother's undead body is returned to her doorstep from the grave and Gutsy witnesses a pack of ravagers digging up Los Muertos - her mother's name for the undead - she realizes that life finds you no matter how hard you try to hide from it. Meanwhile, Benny Imura and his gang set out on a journey to find a cure. As they venture into new and unexplored territory, they soon learn that the zombies they fought before were nothing compared to what they'll face in the wild.

It is possible this may be Maberry's best work yet, but that is a rather tall order to fill. I love that Maberry brought his characteristic split narrative to the great rot and ruin. This novel beatifully merges three of Maberry's great series togeather, the Dead of Night, Rot and Ruin, and Joe Ledger series. They have been linked this entire time, but now it seems conplete. We meet up with new friends, young friends, and old friends. And as always Ray Porter's preformance is fantastic.
I cannot wait to see what comes next.

I'll be honest. At first I had little to no intrest. I am a little tired of zombie novels, but the monsters in this story just did not appeal to me. The story moved at a steady pace, which made it hard to focus with out interest. About 1/3 of the way through book 1 the monsters are scientifically explained and their nature are revealed. From that point on, it has been a non-stop thrill.
There are plenty of characters that you will get connected to, and some you can watch develop. The action is top notch and Bronson Pinchot bring it all life. My only complaint with Nicholas Sansbury Smith is that his novels tend to be on the shorter side, but he is a very talented storyteller. With box sets such as this and cheaper price tags his pros far out weigh the cons.

More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago. The only thing keeping the two surviving lifeboats in the sky are Hell Divers - men and women who risk their lives by diving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.

It is the long slow rolling sequel to The Passage. While the story has a slow momentum, it adds to the beauty of it. The character depth was one of my favorite part, including the tie in with itself and the previous book. Scott Brick definitely breathes life into the story. Like with The Passage, I probably could not finish the book if I was reading it, but I am a very distracted reader. If you want a good story, keep listening to this trilogy.
