The elite crew of the pirate ship UNS Flying Dutchman had a simple mission: determining whether the Thuranin are sending another starship to Earth. Along the way, they became sidetracked by securing a future for the UNEF troops on the planet Paradise. When asked whether Earth was now safe, their ancient alien AI responded "Not so much"...now they have to deal with the consequences.

Morgan and his extended family could see the light at the end of the tunnel, dim though it may be. There was the promise of power once again. The plant was being repaired, and it looked as though it may actually run. While it meant lots of hard, sweaty work, the reward was worth the investment. The farm was growing strong, and community involvement was good. People were finally coming to terms with the fact that they needed to work together. So far Mother Nature had been on their side. But that, too, was about to change.

My wife and I both like this series more than many others, factual where it needs realistic military equipment and Operation's 99% spot on and the rest is theory and maybe abit too harsh on the DHS, it is not that I have any desire to be under the thumb under an Obama DHS (He is Gone Now, Hazza ! Hazza ! But I urge A. to keep this series going, Put on your devious writers cap and get to writing my friend, WE ARE WAITING

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

In Turning Point, the Ryman family faces a life altering decision - should we stay or should we go? The oldest and strongest emotion in man is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. Will Americans flee the urban centers, the proverbial golden hordes, for the countryside? Will it be safer than the cities? Turning Point will lead the Ryman family into a complex, inexplicable world where danger lurks around every bend.

Would you listen to Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series again? Why?

yes,,, I reread all books I enjoy

What was one of the most memorable moments of Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series?

sad to say one mistake that was multiplied and I could not get it out of my mind as I finished the book,,, This is fiction that is leaning upon some historical facts which have been reversed from reality, The South was Democrat and Bobby made several mistakes based upon this error, That is my only peeve

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

yes and I like him very much

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

many spots that I cannot point to just one

Any additional comments?

Keep them coming Bobby

The Guardians is an action-adventure thrill ride, packed with plausible events that offers listeners a glimpse into a potential collapse of society, while providing an exciting and entertaining story with characters you will feel you truly know and understand. Continue on this journey with them as they face the dangers, hardships, chaos, and violence of an unraveling and collapsing modern world, while never losing touch with their own humanity, decency, and dignity.

Would you try another book from Jeff Motes and/or Holly Henrichs and Michael Stadler ?

This is a horrible book, its a script not a book

Would you ever listen to anything by Jeff Motes again?

NOT LIKELY

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Holly Henrichs and Michael Stadler ?

I am sure they are fine but this is a annoying manuscript

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

"I HATE IT" level too high

Any additional comments?

I HATE IT DO NOT BUY THIS SCRIPT
