Publisher's Summary

It has been three years since the Progerians left their mark of devastation upon Earth. The remaining humans are in a desperate race against time as they do their best to reverse engineer the alien technology they captured, in an effort to bolster their beleaguered defenses against the oncoming onslaught of Progerians hell-bent on revenge. Revenge against the humans that thwarted their take-over and revenge against the subordinate Genogerians that helped.Michael Talbot once again finds himself at the forefront to protect all that is sacred to him. He will receive help from some unexpected allies but will it be enough?

THE BEST ONE YET!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes to be better than the print version?

I only say yes because I Love Sean Runnette!

What did you like best about this story?

The depth of the main characters commitment and loyalty to his family and friends. This series is so different from anything I have ever read. I never know what is going to happen next. I have listened to so many books that I have been able to figure out what was going to happen long before the story was over. I like to be surprised and Mark Tufo isn't afraid of the road less traveled. IH 4 stopped at the perfect moment and I can't wait for IH 5!!!

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

EVERYTHING!! He is my all time favorite narrator! He was born to be Mike Talbot!

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

There are to many to count. I laughed out loud several times, said NO, NO, NO, and cried several times!

Just keeps getting better!

I thought the first book was too oppressively dark and had to force myself to keep listening to the series. By book two, I was glad I had kept going. It's been classic Mike Talbot ever since and seems to get better with each installment.

This one had me laughing out loud before the end of the first sentence, I think--certainly the first paragraph. There's plenty of action and suspense for those who like it, always balanced by Mike's wit and banter with others.

If you've read a lot of Tufo, you've probably already figured this out, but I'll say it anyway. The various Mike Talbot series' are pretty much mutually exclusive. I had read the available Zombie Fallout books first, and expected this series to be the adventures of young Mike before the zombies. I couldn't have been wronger.

It seems as if Mark Tufo had several completely different adventures that he imagined himself in over the years, and now he has stuck Mike Talbot in his place, (hey, I just noticed they even have the same initials) and is writing them up. I think that is way cool, especially since I have a similar situation inside my own head, but I'm not writing about mine.

Highly recommended!

Amazing Talbot adventure

Where does Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right there at the top with the rest of Mark Tufo's books

What was one of the most memorable moments of Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes?

The descriptions of friendship between Mike and his Big Green friend and their banter with one another always gets me.

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

Sean Runnette has been the voice of Michael Talbot, and many other Mark Tufo books, for so long, I honestly can't imagine anyone else doing it justice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed so hard other people on the road looked over to see what the heck I was doing.

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo does it again. His continued chronicles of Michael Talbot weave an extraordinary adventure of excitement and trepidation in this, yet another wild ride, which I can not get enough of. Thank you Mark, and please keep writing.

How could I not listen

About three years later Mike and Tracy are married and have a son, 2 1\2 year old Travis. “D” lives close by and visits often. Things have been quiet for a while. The calm before the storm.

This series just keeps getting better and better. You got to worry about Mike. He is so nice and friendly but watch out he has a dark side. Paul, his best friend and Leader of the country wants him on a photo shoot. Beth, now Paul’s wife, is still thinks she can seduce Mike. I would really like to ring her neck.
Mark has developed his characters very well. The banter between Mike and D is soooo funny. Just like good friends would kid each other.
Mike and Paul are having problems, mostly because of Beth’s undermining their relationship.

The storm hits and Tracy and Mike are separated. Mike in the hospital, again, and Tracy on the battlefield. One thing leads to another and it looks like the end again. Treachery by the aliens and humans alike. Things go from bad to worse and then even worse. A twist toward the end. Should have seen it coming.

Again for this book I had the audio version. Got to tell you that Sean is fantastic as the narrator . He brings the book to life with his various voices. The whole audio was totally enjoyable. Clear and clean recording without any distractions or static.

If you like aliens, war and comic relief you have got to get this series. Oh, and this is not the last book.

Give me more

Would you listen to Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes again? Why?

I listen to all of Mark's books multiple times and I own ALL of his books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Talbot of course, Mark makes him real not like some other writers where there heroes seem super human.

What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings every character to life in my mind.

Excellent

Yet again Mike Talbot is forced to save the day against untenable odds and succeeds, mostly. He and his wife Tracy make a dynamic duo fighting evil at every turn. Will mike's best friend Paul keep the faith and fight the good fight or has he turned traitor? I Beth evil incarnate? Who is really stirring the Genogerians to war? Time will tell! Great read and great narration as always!

BEST ONE YET!!! DYING FOR #5 NOW!!!

Where does Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its fabulous....all Mark's books are!!!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike, then D, Then BT!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

When D, escapes with Travis, and When Mike meets BT!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a LOT!!! I cried a little, and I screamed and cussed Beth and Paul a ton!!!! lol

Any additional comments?

Ok I have to say it...Beth has GOTTA GO!!! And I wont cry if Paul does too....This was the best book of this series so far...I have liked them all, but this one just hit the right pitch finally and flowed like a Mike book should, I think its because Mikes character has grown into the Michael Talbot us readers are familiar with, and when he is with Tracy its just right...I love D, I want to be his friend, he is the coolest Alien I have ever read...and now BT! Woohoo!! All we need now is a Trip appearance and I will feel complete...I could not put this book down...I want and need more...good thing its less than a month till #5!! 2 huge thumbs up and a highly recommend!!!!!!

Start from the Beginning

What did you like best about this story?

If you haven't read/listened to the Zombie Fallout books, start there. The Characters are phenomenal and the development of each "alternate reality" is fun. One might think it a bit hoakey but I am just glad to be able to follow Mike along on another fun, blundering adventure.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unfortunantely! I wish they would just keep going! It is getting painful to wait for the next book. :-)

Any additional comments?

Mr. Tufo, please keep them coming! You style and humour are wonderful!

Great Story Continues!!

I love the first three Indian Hills books, maybe more then Zombie Fallout. I was happy to see Mark Tufo return to the story where it left off. The 4th installment picks up where the third ended and while a great listen is a little off from the first three. None the less I love the adventures of Mike Talbot and gang. I often find myself laughing out loud and love how Tufo is able to take the same group of characters and put them in completely different stories. The lap-overs are always nice to see and bring back memories of the other stories. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing Michael's next story. As always Sean Runnette rocks, I could not image Mark's books without him.

What a fantastic surprise!

I am currently listening to Indian Hill again with my partner on long journeys. I had no idea Mark Tufo was planning another, let alone that it was written, so I was very excited to get hold of this book. Not that I ever doubted him, but Tufo did it again! I really enjoyed this tale. Set five years after the end of IH3, it catches us up and takes us forward. The themes explored in this book are as harrowing as in the original three and mirror some pretty terrible moments in human history. I like this about these books.

There are some hilarious moments, one of which will stay with me for a very long time and with Sean Runnette's delivery, this is an entertaining listen. I couldn't recommend this audiobook enough. Enjoy!

Mark Tufo is a master at his art

Mark Tufo is an incredible author. Shaun Runnette is Mike Talbot.

Fun and well paced story telling. I feel so close to the characters and love the alternate reality idea. Been quite a ride to get to book 4. For me the most intriguing part is the switch in allegiances, this is heartbreaking (as far as fiction can be).

Mark Tufo is a master at his art, thank you!

Love Mark Tufo Books and Indian Hills is Top

Would you listen to Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes again? Why?

Maybe but more excited about IH5 :)

What other book might you compare Indian Hill 4: From The Ashes to, and why?

IH reminds me of a few films i saw about human champions vs off world champions very close to them indeed but Mark Tufo builds on this and takes the story on and with great humour takes each IH book forward.

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes i think Sean is one of the best narrators on Audible and he really keeps you into the story.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Indian Hills 4 lol

Any additional comments?

A really great book where Mike Talbot keeps going from crisis to crisis but with humour that will make you laugh and laugh whilst being totally absorbed into the story.
