Publisher's Summary

Book 3 in Anthony J Melchiorri's The Tide series.

New heroes emerge from the smoldering ashes of humanity....But so do new threats.

A man-made plague has ravaged humanity, the military is in shambles, and chaos reigns over the world. Hope seems nothing more than a dream.

Captain Dominic Holland is determined to stop the inevitable. His daughters are finally safe, and his crew has found new ways to combat the Skulls. He leads the Hunters on a mission to recover vital research that may hold the key to stopping the biological agent responsible for this apocalyptic new world.

But unexpected new dangers threaten the Hunters' efforts. They must adapt and face these challenges with everything they have. After all, it's no longer just their lives on the line. The future of the human race relies on their success.

Can the Hunters salvage what remains of humanity? Or is it already too late?

Spoils of War

Story continues very quickly and I love it. Ends with everyone's world turned upside down. Ship is under attack - captain is away and daughters are being saved by a crewman. Government of course is being as shady trying to blame anyone else and will stop at nothing to prove it. Captain must solve the virus problem before there is nothing to save.
Fast paced action so keep up - Captain will bring it together but first they must get to safety.
Will get the next one.

More action than first two books combined.

The Oni Agent outbreak continues its rise to devastating levels across the globe. The infected, now called “Skulls” are evolving. The horn or scale-like protrusions on their bodies are growing, covering more of their body and becoming thicker, like armor. There also is a king-size version of the Skulls, called “Goliaths”; bigger, meaner, and more dangerous in every way. Another evolved version spits acid; they call these “Droolers”. Add to this the political climate is turning against Holland & crew as well. There are facets of government that definitely have conflicting visions of how things should be run (what’s new?). It is becoming evident that finding an antidote is taking second place to staying alive. Captain Holland & crew certainly have their work cut out for themselves and have difficulty determining who to trust. There seems to be more action and excitement in this third book than the first two combined.

Ride Continues at fun, breathtaking pace!

Sometimes a series slows down but not this one. There are new problems and monsters at every turn. The Tide is a fun, wild ride facing hard challenges with wonderful varied characters. I care what happens to all of them. I am beginning the next book immediately!

I enjoyed it for the most part

If you could sum up The Tide in three words, what would they be?

the story moved

Any additional comments?

A military consultant is needed. When military title, like Command Sergeant Major (CSM), is messed up it sticks out like a sore thumb. The CSM was referred to as the "Commander" Sergeant Major once. Ouch! the title is Command Sergeant Major

Zombies and monsters

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

I like the audio version, the voice actor is great & really gives a good voice to all the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that the author has added all the different types of zombies - not just skulls. It really ups the level of scare in the book.

Have you listened to any of Ryan Kennard Burke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, He's done a great job on this series. I'd look for other things preformed by him.

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

When the hunters were escaping from the museum.

a good mistake

Ok I will come clean… I’m an big fat idiot! I brought this title by mistake. Don’t ask me how because I just don’t know how. I certainly don’t have any money to burn… I am so poor that the ducks throw bread at me.

So with the confession of me being dumb and broke out of the way. I was thinking about going through the process of returning this title. I mean who would start listening to a series at Volume 3?

I thought I would just sample it before I made up my mind. I’m glad I didn’t return it, because as I ‘sampled’ the story, I soon discovered it was good enough to stand on it’s own merit.

Like I said this was the first I have heard of the series and I was generally intrigued by the story. It isn’t a normal zombie story. In fact the ‘zombies’ are more monsters like in the fashion from ‘Torment’ by Jeremy Bishop. Which was one of my first ever reviews… I loved that one as well!

I do have to get one gripe of my chest… the narration… it is just too slow! I easily listened to this one at 1.5x speed. I do normally listen to most titles at 1.25x speed but even at 1.5x speed on several occasions I wished I had a 1.75x option. In my view if a person has to increase the narration beyond 1.25x speed, then the customer is being ripped off in the adverts price of the title. 1.5x is just too much, it deceases the listening time dramatically! This in turn alters the $per listening hour ratio that people like me take into consideration.
I guess the best way to determine what I really thought about this title is for me to answer the question; ‘am I going to buy the 2 previous books in the series?’ The answer is no. I don’t think I need to.

But, and it is a big BUT (much like my own but) ‘am I going to purchase the next in the series’? And my answer would be ‘yes’.

I did like this one and I suspect those who are not as dumb as me. Those smarter people who actually started the series at number one would also be keen to see this series through to the end.

This fatman is giving this one a single handed ‘fonzie’ thumbs up and a ‘hey’. Not a two handed thumbs up and a ‘heeeeeeeeeeey’ mind you. But you never know, maybe the next in the series.

Enjoyed

Enjoyed the first 2 books. Must admit I had downloaded 2 and 3 before I finished the first book.
