For Mo Collins, surviving the zombie apocalypse isn’t getting any easier. Defeating blunatics, saving survivors, recovering treasure, and securing Guntersville Island has been taking up Mo’s time when he would rather just make time with his girl. But he can’t avoid his scripted destiny; his personal Oracle, Smokes, won’t let him. He can still bitch about it, though.

This is definitely a different look on zombies. This ones are blue, called peevies and avoid the sun. The characters are definitely different, the interaction between Moe and Smokes is someof the funniest I've ever enjoyed. This is a 5 star book with lots of laughs and action.

The group of survivors must go up against their deadliest opponent yet: Winter. The survivors must bounce back from their losses and push through a harsh winter. Again, the humans they cross are far more dangerous than the undead scrambling for their flesh. They must overcome battles within their own group to help one another survive the elements as they find themselves once again on the run with zombies and their own demons chomping at their heels.

Let me start off by saying that I'm kind of a "zombie snob" . It takes a lot to hook me on a series and Raymond Lee has me hook,line and sinker. I thought book one was good but the author has really stepped it up in book two. Don't get me wrong, there was lots of action in book one but book two is action packed and darker and more intense.if you haven't read or listened to hook one STOP RIGHT NOW and go grab it, you won't be disappointed.
As you know, Hal, Raven, Cruz, Damion, Janjai, Angela and Jeremy are heading to what they hope is safety at an army base in Alabama. Who will survive the trip, will they even make it? We get to join Raven and company's see what they have to go through to survive in this deadly and dangerous new life, if you can call running from both zombies and humans constantly a life. Why are some of the others having dreams centered around Raven? Is Cruz really crazy or possessed by evil like Hal says? The book ended at the perfect OMG moment, bravo Mr. Lee bravo. This is darker and more intense than book one and I LOVE IT!!!!

Few people know that the Scion School exists. Tucked away on a private Caribbean island, the school hosts 36 exceptionally gifted students. They train every day to prepare themselves for an immense responsibility, to lead humankind back from the brink of extinction. At least, that's what they've been told. Only one student - a 17-year-old named Jacey - suspects the truth. Driven by her undying loyalty to her friends, Jacey races to untangle the truth of who the Scions are...and what the headmaster truly means when he says they are bound for a great destiny. Daughter of Nothing is the first audiobook in an amazing new series for fans of young adult dystopian fiction.

When Isaac appears at Rafi's favorite restaurant acting like a long-lost friend, Rafi bluntly dismisses him. But Isaac is tenacious and he has his heart set on the grown-up version of the boy he always wanted and never forgot. The way Isaac sees it, he and Rafi are perfect for each other.

Would you listen to A Shot at Forgiveness again? Why?

Yes I absolutely love this author and her way of story telling has kept me interested from the first book.

What did you like best about this story?

That Isaac wouldn't give up on trying to convince Rafi that they're meant to be together even though Rafi doesn't want anything to do with his childhood bully at first.

What about Robert M. Clark’s performance did you like?

The way he made both men come to life and I could hear the emotions in his voice.

If you could take any character from A Shot at Forgiveness out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Isaac because I love someone who sees what he wants and goes for it no matter what gets in the way, Isaac just bull does over every obstacle.

Any additional comments?

This author writes woth such emotion and the storyline flows effortlessly

"Sexiest Man Alive" and Golden Globe-winning actor Ethan Baker lights up the screen but fizzles in his personal life. When his latest girlfriend breaks up with him, Ethan turns to his one "forever" person - Jude Harrison. But as Ethan makes the familiar drive to his best friend's house, an unexpected detour and a bewildering passenger take him through places in time he'd long forgotten. Suddenly, Ethan sees Jude's actions over the years from a different perspective, but it's his own reaction that's the biggest surprise.

What did you love best about Places in Time?

The relationship between Ethan and Judy even before it turned sexual.

What did you like best about this story?

That the first person Ethan thinks of when he gets dumped by his latest gf is his best friend Jude, showed me that there was more emotional attachments there than Ethan realised.

Have you listened to any of John Solo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No but thought this was excellent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Ethan realizes how he really fells about Jude.

Any additional comments?

Just wish it was a longer story I enjoyed it so much but I so enjoy all this author's stories.

But when his one and only finally arrives, Noah is horrified to discover that he doesn't remember anything from the past three years. Clark Lehman built a life around the person who insisted from their first meeting that they were meant to be together.

I wouldn't say that it's better just different. I love being able to hear the emotions in Noah and Clark's voices in the audio.

What did you like best about this story?

How Clark wouldn't give up on Noah and did everything he could to bring back Noah's memory of their love and lives together.

Just as amazing as any other.

Who was the most memorable character of Home Again and why?

Clark because he believed in his ability to bring Noah back to him.
