A paranormal agency in tatters. A critical alliance that must not fail. A betrayal in their darkest hour. The demon Ekhmez ripped out the heart of America’s supernatural defenders and strengthened their foes. The agencies of the Omicron branch of the US government face a newly expanded threat with their resources stretched to the breaking point. To hold the line, newly promoted Commander David White of ONSET is sent to forge an alliance with the Elfin Conclave, a supernatural organization with its own history, grudges, and politics.

When vampires attack David White's small town, only luck, firepower, and the intervention of an elite government task force saves his life. The aftermath of the attack leaves him in the middle of the world's biggest secret: the existence of government agencies that regulate the supernatural. They insist that David's "luck" is actually a supernatural gift, and he's immediately recruited into ONSET, the most shadowy part of America's thin blue line of police protectors.

for me, this book was too reminiscent of Monster Hunters Incorporated and much of the storyline could almost be pulled from mhi. also, although there is very good character development I feel that the writer at time spent too long reiterating points that he's already made over and over and trying to create drama when it's was pretty obvious what was going to happen in fact it was not until the very end where he threw in a significate twist that actually made the book pretty good and which also made me consider listening to the remainder of the series.

Collins (male narrator) was intense, passionate and true immersed you into the story... In stark contrast, Sands (female narrator), unusual speaking cadence by constantly speeding up and slowing down coupled with her whiny mumbling voice DROVE ME CRAZY! In fact, i contemplated not purchasing in next book in the series because she is also sharing narrator duties...luckly tge story is too interesting.

United Nations Special Operations Command sent an elite expeditionary force of soldiers and pilots out on a simple recon mission, and somehow along the way they sparked an alien civil war. Now the not-at-all-merry band of pirates is in desperate trouble, again. Their stolen alien starship is falling apart, thousands of light years from home. The ancient alien AI they nicknamed Skippy is apparently dead, and even if they can by some miracle revive him, he might never be the same.

good story...i just think the merry band of pirates need some unexpected good luck from time to time... and considering the title of the book is in regard to Skippy's zero hour, i was expecting an epic battle between Skippy and his nemesis the worm, with a dramatic plea to Joe (even somehow pulling Joe's consciousness into another plain) and both of them crushing the worm.....however that part was just blown over..... oh well

As with the other two books, this was a great story. This title was 4 or 5 hours longer than the otjers and my only complaint is that at times it took too long to come to an obvious point on the story... It's like the author added a bunch of "filler" in order to stretch the story...

When marine private Oliver Chadwick Gardenier is killed in the marine barrack bombing in Beirut, somebody who might be Saint Peter gives him a choice: Go to heaven, which, while nice, might be a little boring, or return to earth. The Boss has a mission for him, and he's to look for a sign. He's a marine: He'll choose the mission. Unfortunately, the sign he's to look for is "57". Which, given the food services contract in Bethesda Hospital, creates some difficulty. Eventually it appears that God's will is for Chad to join a group called Monster Hunters International.

Toooooo much time spent on grandizing and talking about how spectacular the main character was/is...and too little time on Monster Hunting. As always, the narration was great, which was probably the only reason I made it to the end of the book.
