Loved this book! Starts off with action , has action all the way through and even ends with action! listened to book in one setting just couldn't put it down. The only bad thing about this book!!! It ended way to soon for me! The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life and getting you vested in them. Great zombie book for your collection!!!

The Freedman is Hedbor’s standalone novel set in North Carolina from his Tales From a Revolution series, in which he examines the American War of Independence as it unfolded in each of the colonies. If you like enthralling stories of familiar events from unfamiliar viewpoints, you’ll love The Freedman.

Loved listening to this book. The author did a great job researching the time period this book was written in. The main Character Jupiter was amazing and believable. There were a couple of places where I was laughing pretty hard. Then other places where I was pulling for him and cheering for him. The narrator was amazing with his smooth voice. The characters were brought to life and he made it easy to visualize them and become part of their lives. Great addition to your library especially if you are interested in history.

Be careful who you bring into your home. Not everyone is who you think they are. After a solar flare takes down a large section of the American power grid, Allison opens her doors to friends and neighbors in order to build a sustainable community. But not everyone who claims to be her friend is one.

I really enjoyed the story the characters were well thought out and well developed. The narrator brought it home and made them living creatures. I say creatures because they aren't human. The smooth voice and interpretation of the characters brings another level of creativity to this book. Great addition and listen for your library. Well worth the money and time.

When a writer, down on his luck, takes an assignment as a reporter for a small-town newspaper he figures life couldn't get much worse or mundane, being that the town in which he is to reside is on one of those fabled roads that are seldom crossed...even by folks that are lost. But the town of Gabyvale is about to get interesting. Interesting enough to write home about.

Just when you think you have read everything there is that could be written about zombies you encounter a book like this one. There were parts that the humor of the situation took me by surprise and had me laughing. The narrator was hilarious and did a great job . I could see the characters and just made it funnier. Great book for your collection.

Imagine being liquid enough to fool around with the building blocks of life just to create a park full of zombies to cash in on the general public's infatuation with the undead. Now imagine, as it often does, something going wrong with that concept and zombies ruining the world for everybody. Next, imagine dinosaurs returning to prominence in a Planet of the Apes-type scenario and evolving so they fill all the roles we humans did before the fall of the species. So our story begins. A group of dino-commandos are sent in to uncover the fate of their missing colleagues....

This book took me totally by surprise. It is a dinosaur/highlander/irobot/harlem globetrotters. There were a few places where I became lost but with a minute or so it picked back up to where I knew what was going on. There weren't any zombies eating but we had lots of head removals with the highlander flow after. The humans are gone and the dinosaurs are running the show but... they are dinosaur/human.
The narrator did a great job and made the story more 3 dimensional. If you are into dinosaurs, have a crass sense of humor and love highlander with a twist then this is your book.

Great short story! The author did a great job with this short story it wasn't too short sgu that left you with holes and it was long enough to finish the tale. The narrator did a fantastic job. You can hear the feelings in the characters coming through making them more human. I think most women can relate to the main character she her bladder. :)
