Four audiobooks in one box set: Last Stand: Surviving America's Collapse, Last Stand: Patriots, Last Stand: Warlords, and Last Stand: Turning the Tide. John Mack, a prepper and former soldier, struggles to save his family and community after an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) takes out the country's electrical grid.

Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted, and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself....

as a reader, you always wonder if the next book in a series will be as good as the ones that came before. I can truthfully say for The Black Dagger Brotherhood , yes, yes yes. Ward says she write what the Brotherhood shows her, it must be true. every piece of the Brotherhood s life is so clearly written you can see and feel it. You laugh and cry , you hold your in suspense . it takes you away to a place where you know in your head it's only in the book but in your heart you know somewhere, some place there is The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it.

Where does The King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top 5

What did you like best about this story?

The surprise twists and turns

What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does each character so well that he doesn't have to tell us who he is speaking for

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed, cried, worried and celebrated

Any additional comments?

When you have series of this size, I keep waiting for the ideas to run out or become repetitive. Nope, not with this series. I really believe the Warden must have a real place where the Black Dagger Brotherhood really exist. She may be the real reporter not Beth. Just writing what she witnesses

If you could sum up Unlawful Contact in three words, what would they be?

Breathtaking, believable, suspenseful

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to pick just one

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I have always had a love of reading and now with dimming eyesight , I have transferred that love to audio books. This author, Pamela Clare, is one of my top 5 authors. I held my breath, cried and laughed out loud. Probably even learned a good bit about journalism . She makes it real.
