I'm glad to read another great book by this author! I'v e known about the dangers of Yellowstone for over 10 yrs & it's about time a book is done reg. it (at least 1 I found, maybe there are others). This author writes about so many different topics in his various groups of books that prove just how delicate our balance of life is on this earth. People need to wake up to the oh so many things that could bring society as we know it to a screeching halt! Reading the books by this author is a good starting point to find out just how fast things can go wrong, & how desperate we all may get if any of them happen. My thx to the author for yet another great book. I also appreciate his good books that don't have (o r need) cussing in them.

The worst has happened. Texas has fallen. It's up to Ava to get it back. Without the support of the Lone Star State, the Alliance has no hope against the powerful and corrupt regime which has hijacked the majority of the United States. Still mourning her loss, Ava has seen more death and destruction than she ever bargained for. She's finished with fighting, but she may hold the key to America's survival. An unexpected visitor implores her to take on one last impossible task.

There is no such thing as an ending, just a new beginning. Throughout the millennia, extinction has been the norm and survival, the exception. When faced with the hour of departure, will mankind fight to survive? Not only was there a patient zero, there was also a last patient.

I've listened to several series by Bobby Akart & love them all! Only 1 did I return, Deep Nine, book 1. One of my reasons for appreciating Bobby Akart's books is because he proves you don't have to use tons (o r any, for that matter) of cussing to make a great book. I was very disappointed with Deep Nine, no 1, as immediately there was swearing. I do love this author & will continue to listen to his bks, as long as the cussing's kept out. Out of several series the only 1 I've found w/cussing is Deep Nine, so I'm anxious to get started on another series by Akart. Pandemic was a great series. However, remember if should 1 happen it'd be much worse than what this series shows. Akart describes a lot of the horrendous things of a pandemic, but the story centered more around the lives of 1 family. So, a lot was left out of the horrors of a true pandemic (!God forbid should 1 ever occur!). Still, Pandemic series by Akart's very well worth hearing. I especially enjoyed having a male voice & a female voice on the book. Wish more Audible books had both when reading a book. Makes it so much more interesting.

I listen to a lot of end times scenarios audible books. This is by far one of my favorite authors out of all of them! He writes a great book, that keeps you moving right along with it for everyone, including Christians and non-christians. He has wonderful survival ideas for anyone who's interested. And the best part is he proves that you can write a great book on end times scenarios without cussing. I, as a Christian, greatly appreciate that. My thanks to the author.

They use their ingenuity, grit, and faith to persevere but find themselves facing a most unexpected enemy. The Lone Star Series is a thought-provoking, gut-wrenching look into a postapocalyptic country devastated by nuclear destruction.

I've read many, many apocolypse type books (where an EMP, or deadly virus, etc. knock civilization to it's knees). This is the 3rd bk in a series of 6, & I pre-ordered this 1 b4 it came out. Highly recommend starting w/bk 1 in series, & enjoy the ride this series takes you on. Esp. great bk for Texans! I also love the authors knowledge of prepping & that he doesn't use cuss words (which really don't add anything to a great book[s] like the 1's in this series). Anxious to try some of this author's other books!

I can't wait for this author's next book. He switches back & forth in times with the rare art of not losing the reader, and giving the book more depth & emotion taking you deep into the book where you feel like you're actually there. Excellent author to follow!

Final Exit is the most famous book on voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide. There is unique step-by-step language for the competent adult who is terminally or hopelessly ill to bring their life to a peaceful, non-violent end if they wish. Final Exit outlines the legal complications connected with dying, death, hastened death, euthanasia laws, suicide, living wills, and advance directives. Derek Humphry explores the problems with life insurance, as well as the ethics of double suicide.

I bought this to listen to on Audible only because I saw this book at an elderly family members' house therefore I wanted to know what it said. As a Christian I have great empathy for those who suffer, especially because I am 100% disabled and have lived with horriffic chronic pain 24 hours a day 7 days a week for 20 years (as of 2018). I suffer from two failed back surgeries low back pain, tumors on my spine causing horrible pain in my thoracic region, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, depression, Complex PTSD, high anxiety, ADHD and ADD, Etc. I suffer terribly everyday and have no quality of life, never go have fun, can barely get groceries & keep up w/house stuff, but I became a born-again Believer and gave my heart to the Lord in 2001 and know without a doubt that killing oneself is wrong. I cannot speak for anybody else, I can only speak for myself, nor do I judge anyone else should they choose this route, but I also have an only sibling that committed suicide, so I understand what the people who are left behind feel like, and it's horrendous. My elderly family members are in their 80s and are healthier than I am at 53! They have early to mid- Alzheimers and dementia and I know how terrible that is but they are not in pain and they can go longer and do more than I am able to! I think suicide is selfish, causes terrible suffering for those left behind for the rest of their lives, but like I said that's my opinion only.

All he wants is peace. All he finds is war. Marcus Battle is a wanted man. No matter where he goes or what he does, he can't escape those who aim to kill him. But as he fights off one would-be vigilante after another, a new threat emerges. It's a threat worse than the viral Scourge which plunged his world into a dystopian nightmare and it could give rise to second apocalypse. Can Marcus fend off the coming attacks or will he finally fall prey to an enemy he won't see coming?

This has been one of my favorite series of books of ever listened to. The characters are so colorful and the main character breaks your heart, makes you want to salute him and you fall in love with the good man that he is. He's so sad, & has lost so much in his life, & it would be wonderful to make just 1 more bk on Marcus Battle with a happy ending for him. I pray the author does! HIGHLY reccomend all in this series!

This is the 4th of 1 of the greatest series I have listened to on Audible. And I have listened to a ton of books, so that says a lot. These books are so well written and take you so deeply into them it's amazing. And at the end there's always a touching part that makes me want to cry. I would definitely recommend these books to anyone. And the best part is is from what I can recall, I am over 50 by the way, there is no cussing in these books. I'm of the firm belief cussing does not make for a better book and have returned books because of too much cussing. So if you want a great series to listen to this is the one. Enjoy as much as I did.

This has everything you want from a good apocalypse-type book. What starts this is a plague, killing 2 out of 3 people world-wide. The main character, Battle, is an awesome retired military man & it's him against a bunch of bad men. The author slides between past & present in a way that keeps you with the story & just adds more mraning to it. Highly recommend!
