Creepy and full of suspense

This book is phenomenal with a really creepy mysterious plan to lure you into thinking you know what's going on. The fight for the human race has truly begun and the humans must make an important decision in order to survive. This book has me in edge but I could not stop listening I had to find out what happened and who made it out ok. I highly recommend this series of you love sci-fi, mystery and action all rolled into one. I love to watch the characters develop over time the strength and cohesiveness.
Do not miss this series it is absolutely phenomenal, creative and impressive. I received this audio book at my request. I am voluntarily leaving this review of my own volition.

Another great book in this series!💜

This is one of the best sci-fi series I’ve read/listened to in a long time.
This book continues the fight for the human race. Plenty of action some light romance and let’s just the aliens are not the only problem. It easily flows between different scenarios (main character storylines) happening at the the same time. This book also adds new characters which add even more mystery.
It’s creepy, mysterious and suspenseful. I love all the characters and I’m excited to read/listen to the next book in this series.
The narration was absolutely amazing!! The narrator really brings these characters to life!! And does a wonderful job on the different sound effects.
I would definitely recommend this book!
This is a continuous story but with no drastic cliffhanger.

Great Read

Fatal Reaction, Battle of the Hunted was another great by M.A. Hollstein. The survivors find themselves having to work together with the aliens in order to save the planet. They are face with creatures that are looking to procreate and end the human race. This was another great read by M.A. Hollstein.

Don't listen alone

I had to stop this book multiple times! I got so scared. These books are a mix of walking dead and falling skies! Great storyline, background of characters, and narrator!

The Scourge Have Arrived

I totally enjoyed listening to this alien/dystopian book 3rd in series and thus far the best. I totally enjoy the characters Amanda, Bill, Ellie, Mike, Kylie and Uncle Jack. Most of the good aliens had left except a few and the vicious aliens (scourge) are killing and eating men and kidnapping fertile women while Susan is working to find a cure for the virus for remaining humans and is using Ben who can also communicate with the scourge. Cannot wait to find out about the women the scourge have kidnapped and if cure is found and who ends up surviving. Recommend if you want a different zombie/alien book. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Amazing Continuation!

This installment was quite enjoyable to listen to. Once again we are pulled into the fight for survival with a well written story and developed characters. I listened to all three of the books in this series one after the other. The first book was good but the second was better and this was the best yet. I'm hoping there's at least one more to this series. I enjoyed Tim Jackson's narration once again. He really helps to bring the book to life. His voices, emotions and pace really will pull you into this book and keep you hanging on his words until the end! I'll be recommending this story to my zombie reading friends.

Human Offal On The Menu

It's the end of the world as we know it.
Yet another well written story, 3rd in a series
but can be a standalone as the author deftly
reintroduces the charactors without it losing
the flow to the audience that has read/heard
the first two stories. Very well done.
I enjoy the narration of Tim Jackson but I do
enjoy him at 1 1/4 speed-just my preference (he's quite good).
I look forward to book number #4.
The author kindly gifted me this audio in exchange
for a honest review.
I would reccomend this story as your next purchase
it is very enjoyable.

Battle of the Hunted

This is Book 3 of a trilogy, but since it ends on a cliffhanger, I can only hope that the author decides to continue the story!

If you don't want to know what happens, quit reading this review now! SPOILERS AHEAD!!!




All of the characters who have survived so far are back in this book. There are now two races of aliens, called the Order (the good guys) and the Scourge (the bad guys), who are invading Earth. The Order is trying to find a new planet away from the Scourge since the Scourge's favorite food is the Order. The Scourge have to be one of the most frightening beings that I have read in a long, long time. Nothing seems to be able to stop them and their appetite is never ending. Their whole reason for living seems to be to eat either humans or the Order. The Order appears to be trying to help the humans survive while trying to save themselves as well.

Our beloved characters from the previous books finally seem to have gotten smarter and not so trusting. You have some young girls, teenaged boys with attitude, evil biker gangs, a dog named Max that somehow has managed to survive and a growing romantic relationship or two. You also have a pretty badass Japanese gentleman who knows how to use a machine gun. All in all, a bunch of great characters that you hope will be able to survive (except for the Crusaders....you just want them to die a violent death!).

I was expecting this book to wrap up the story, but it doesn't. Instead, you have a surprise ending that definitely leaves the reader wanting more. This trilogy has progressed into a totally different direction than I thought it would when I first started reading it and the writer's skill has progressed as well. She has written a book that is definitely one to either scare you or give you nightmares!

This book does have quite a bit of cursing, so if that is offensive, steer clear. But, to be honest, who wouldn't be cursing if they were being pursued by aliens who want to make you their lunch!

The narrator does a great job and really added a lot to my enjoyment of the book. I was given a chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book through Audiobook Worm and chose to review it.

Battle of the Hunted

When this book ended we knew a war was coming to Earth and the big question was will the survivors of the virus be able to fight against an unknown enemy who see's them as a food source. I enjoyed all 3 books in this series

Another epic book in the serise.

The scourge are merciless and hunting anything they can for food, humans are on the menu.
The Order are merely trying to escape from the scourge and trying to blend with humans, and escape from slavery.
This is another epic book in the serise, it's brilliantly written and the narration is flawless.
it seemlessly flows and deffinatly keep you entertained.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this serise.
5 STAR....

Book three Dystopia

You have to read the others to know what is going on otherwise you'll get yourself confused. This carries on from where we were left in book two. We find out more about the alien spiecies and about the humans that knew.
It is fast paced and full of tension. This book gets your heart pumping with nail biting moments but because of the violence I would not recommend you listen to it while you eat. you have been warned.
Dying to find out what happens next.
Would recommend.

3rd book in the series

Book 3 in this series continues to follow the survivors' struggles in a world where most of the population has died. With the new threat which was introduced in book 2, they have more threats to deal with. As with the previous books, the story moved along at a good pace and the narrator did well with the text. Well worth a listen if you enjoy horror/scifi with a twist.

Too old to breed but still good to eat.

The silver ship in the sky might have caused unease and consternation but the black ship that replaced it caused terror. These aliens, faster, taller and bulkier than humans and making sounds similar to those who had been sick with the virus, were very different from those who came first. They were on Earth to feed, and they were hungry. So few humans left, what hope do they have?

Again written mostly with quite short, simple sentences which increase the tension, Battle of the Hunted, follows the handful of survivors met in the previous book in their attempts to live through the arrival of the Shroud. Tim Jackson again narrates, his pleasant mellow voice with just a tiny undertone of the sinister is perfect for this book also. His pace is not fast, no histrionics, but steady, which curiously increases the tension. His voicing of each protagonist is individual and appropriate.

My thanks to the rights holder of The Batt!e of the Hunted, who,at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Best started at the beginning with book one, this has become an absorbing and scary series
