In the sky, ships appear. Colossal alien spacecraft hover in different locations, strategically placed around the globe. With the virus having killed off most of humanity and the arrival of the extraterrestrial ships, how will the survivors defend themselves against this new, impending threat? 

Join the survivors as they prepare to battle the unknown. What they're up against is much greater than anything they could ever imagine. Will humanity prevail?

Great Read

Fatal Reaction, Survival was another great read by M.A. Hollstein. The survivors are now dealing with ships that appear in the sky. There are alien spaceships that are placed in different locations across the globe. The survivors have been battling the virus that has killed most of humanity and now they are facing the extra terrestrial ships. I enjoyed reading this post-apacolyptic book.

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!

Fatal Reaction, Survival

Another great story from MA Hollstein matched by an equally great narration by Tim Jackson.

The main characters from book one were joined by others. These people also survived the infection and were all scared of the looming danger above. As they try to live day to day, they were forced to face scarier circumstances and individuals.

The suspense was definitely rising as the surviving humans realized that the threat they face was way beyond what they imagined.

The big twist in the first book was accounted for and then another twist was introduced. Brilliant! Making me eager to start listening to the third book.

A Virus, Alien Invasion & Human Survival!!

This installment to the Fatal Reaction series is very well done. The author gives us a decimated Earth, developed characters and scary situations! I enjoyed this book despite Ellie driving me crazy. This story continues to take us on a crazy, suspenseful and amazing adventure. I listened to this in one setting and look forward to the next installment. If you don't like cliffhangers then you'll want to get the third book before listening to this one. The narration really brought the story to life and the voices are nicely distinct. Can't wait to listen to the next one!

Zombies and Aliens

I enjoyed listening to the book as it has good characters action and alien components not just zombies. Amanda is the main character from 1st book, Bill and his son Benjamin, and then there is Liam and Susan who are aliens trying to help save Ben, crusaders who are trying to take over everything and then comes scourges. Only complaint was the ending was abrupt and cliffhanger requiring the next book Recommend if you want a different zombie/alien book.

Fatal Reaction :Survival

Book 2 in a series but actually a stand alone audiobook. I enjoyed the listen and hopefully will have the chance to listen to more of the authors work.
There are several groups of people (and non-people) but the characters are so well defined that you never lose your place (and that is a mark of quality writing!).
The author was kind enough to gift me with my copy in exchange for a honest review. I honestly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook and I think you will too.
Enjoyable weekend listen AA++

Remarkably original zombie story

I love zombie stories and I'm always thrilled to find a new angle on it. This had the usual thrills you could expect, but the story behind the plague was completely different and just the tip of the iceberg. Very original, very intriguing. Great character development as well and lots of action. One of my new favorites.

A great series

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed the first book, so was happy to move on to this one. I found that I enjoyed it as much as the first. The narrator does a good job and kept me engaged throughout. I really love the alien aspect of this series in a zombie apocalypse. Definitely looking forward to book 3.

Not my people I'm afraid of - it's what's coming.

"It's not my people I'm afraid of - it's what's coming."
Three weeks have passed since the virus wiped out most of humanity. The scattered survivors mostly stay alone, doors closed to anyone in case they are sick. Only one person was known to have survived after catching the infection, Bill's little son, Benjamin, but not before he had murdered his mother. Now he, his dad and another woman, Amanda are just trying to survive. Sheriff Mike Wilson and Ellie are hopeful of finding others like themselves - there's safety in numbers - and are looking after an elderly neighbour. Ellie has also seen video footage of a teenage, red headed youth who seems to be on his own. But there are also small gangs beginning to form that look dangerous. The phone lines went down, electricity, too. But that latter was restored when the spaceships arrived. And the big silver ship sat above them in the sky, silent, not moving, doing nothing, just being. Until a white light started to flash in the centre...

The book is nicely written, building tension, the oppression of the ship's presence constantly there. The story line moves between different people, their fears and their hopes expressed, their actions followed. It is not dependent on major confrontations, though they do occure, but on the internal observations of each separate character. The people become very real, their reactions what might be in such a situation. It is cleverly presented to give the reader the feeling of actually being there, with the terrors and uncertainties of life threatening unknowns.

Narrator, Tim Jackson, has a pleasing mellow voice with just a tiny undertone of the sinister just below the surface, perfect for this book. His pace is not fast, no histrionics, but steady, which curiously increases the tension. It feels like breaking point is not far away. His voicing of each protagonist is individual and appropriate. A fine performance.

My thanks to the rights holder of Fatal Reaction: Survival, who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. This is an unusual apocalyptic story, not just the average survival after the disaster book. And with more still to come, I am very much looking forward to the continuation in book three.
