Publisher's Summary

The deadly hunt continues in book two of the best-selling Trackers saga.

Five days ago North Korea detonated three nuclear warheads over the United States, triggering an electromagnetic pulse that crippled the country. A second attack destroyed the nerve center of America in a nuclear blast that flattened the nation's capitol. As the government falls apart in the aftermath, the survivors must decide how far they will go to save the ones they love. Police Chief Marcus Colton has struggled to maintain order in the isolated mountain town of Estes Park, Colorado, with the help of expert tracker Raven Spears and stranded pilot Major Nathan Sardetti. Together, they fought the evil terrorizing the town - but new threats are rising, and old rivalries are coming to a head. Charlize Montgomery, newly promoted to Secretary of Defense, is caught between loyalty to her country and love for her son, Ty. When the marines sent to find Ty in Colorado discover a scene of unspeakable carnage, the straightforward rescue mission turns into a deadly chase as the hunters become the hunted.

Reader recovered

In the first book and first review I noted some of the voices by the reader were distracting. In fairness I am happy to write no such distractions in book two!! The story improved as characters settled in. I really enjoyed it.

Great story, can't wait to read #3

Awesome! NSS has set the stage for a great fight between good and evil in a world that now lives with a different set of rules. Hopefully the good guys don't lose their humanity along the way

great second story!

I am a big NSS- fan, and thoroughly enjoyed the ongoing story of Estes park, and my new favorite character Raven!
I like authors and stories that put me there--with
powerful characters, and a story I want to continue hearing.
is that not the true proof of an excellent author?

Terrifying!!!

This story is horrifying as well as terrifying. Not because of monsters but because it comes across as REAL, especially if you have been keeping an eye to world news!

Mr. Smith has a way of making not only his main characters so well rounded that they could potentially be a friend, a neighbor, or a relative but because he writes these characters with faults, demons, and the capacity of goodness, kindness and love.

But I think that it is Mr. Pinchot who is the defining key in making these characters real to me. His ability to interject the right emotions into the character takes him from being a narrator to a Master Storyteller!

Don't miss out on this awesome series.

Fresh from having saved the town and their families from serial killers in the small town of Estes Park, Raven and Nathan find themselves on the move to find Nathan’s handicapped nephew, Ty.  Still plagued by radiation, thugs on the road and other dangers, both head off to Ty’s last known location.  While the US is recovering from the devastating EMP attack, others are ready to take advantage of the chaos.

Ty’s mother, the new Secretary of Defense is trying to find the last North Korean sub and also to save the rest of the US and her son from the newest homegrown terrorist – General Phoenix.   Together, Raven and Nathan hunt down General Phoenix and set into motion a deadly and a fight to the death.

Action packed, this second in the Trackers series is mesmerizing.  Nicholas Sansbury Smith has a gift for blending fact with fiction and creating a horrifying story.  A story that will keep one up for nights because the monsters he creates are people we very well may know in real life!  People who make headlines daily but who fail because there is no chaos – yet!

I have had the pleasure of enjoying several of Smiths books, this series, however, is far more frightening than any of his others.  He knows how to take terror and grow it, cultivating it until his readers cannot stop listening to his books – they know his horror can happen!

Well written with a shocking twist that will leave you gasping – I had to wait a couple of days to write this review because I was in shock and mostly angry at Smith!  I won’t say anymore but like life, a writer can be so unfair!

Once again Bronson Pinchot owns this book!  His talent of presenting each character with a voice that one can only love or hate; he nails each one perfectly!  I hate the voices of the President and General Phoenix – they are grating and “holier than thou” type voices thus gearing the audience to hate the men and appropriately so. While Raven, Nathan and Chief Colton are solid husky voices that demonstrates strength and stability – you cannot help but feel a strong connection to them and grow to love them.

Don't miss out on this awesome series.

There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.

Excellent book and narration

The Hunted:Trackers 2 is the second book in the series and continues where the last book left off. It's a post-apocalyptic EMP book, but it is so much more. The non-stop action, various subplots, Native American legends and realistic characters combine into a book that you won't want to put down. It's scary to think that something like this could truly happen, and we learn how different people will react in order to survive.
If you enjoy apocalyptic fiction, you should check out this series!

Bronson Pinchot is a fabulous narrator who really brings the story to life. He helps us distinguish between characters with his range of voices and helps us connect to them through the emotions brought forth in his voice. Great performance!

Great sequel

This was a awesome sequel to the first trackers book and all your favorite characters are back including Creek. This time they must battle their neighbors to save the people they love, and come back alive. There is non stop action and more than a few twists and turns in this book that will Segway into the third installment of this series. I still enjoyed the narrator and was glad he was back.

American Society Begins to Crumble.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hunted to be better than the print version?

I did not read this story. I preferred to listen to the narrator who gives an excellent performance.

What other book might you compare The Hunted to, and why?

The Hunted continues the story from Book One in the series "Trackers." The overlap of the two books is seamless as the main story continues with new subplots and adventures to maintain your interest in the story .

What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

The narrator Bronson Pinchot gives an outstanding performance, his vocal/tonal changes for different characters was entertaining and very effective.

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

The author cleverly uses different characters and story-lines to highlight the effects of the North Korean EMP attack on all levels of American society. Some of the results are not pretty as the social structure begins to degrade.

Any additional comments?

I did a lot of listening at night and during trips in my car. The book was finished in a couple of days. I can't wait for the next installment and have already placed an order for the yet to be published third book in the series.
