Sons of War 3, Sinners by Nicholas Sansbury Smith


Sinners is the third book in the Sons of War series. Sinners picks up where book 2 left off, continuing the action-packed saga. Much of the United States is unlivable. California continues to see an influx of people. Determining the good guys from the bad guys is a growing gray area.

Emotional turmoil drives most characters to go above and beyond what they would have done if not pushed so relentlessly. Book one set the stage when America turned on itself. Nuclear fallout made much of America uninhabitable. Life is hard for everyone. Sanity is precious—the fight over who will be in control of California builds to a breaking point.

Sinners wrap up all the loose ends from the previous two books. Book Three, Sinners, is an unpredictable story. I don’t know if a fourth book is coming. The author ends Sinners with a brilliant ending. I will keep my eyes open for book 4. Fingers crossed!

Earth Unrelenting by M. R. Forbes. Narrated by Jonathan Davis


Earth Unrelenting is the second book in this series. Sheriff Duke is called upon to assist in finding a fugitive, Nathan Stacker, that fled Proxima and is now on earth. Proxima is a planet many from earth fled to a long time ago.

A lot is going on—the story transitions well from various locations and situations. Sheriff Duke is an Earther in the know. He is a very valuable person in many situations. Nathan Stacker is a worthy opponent, as are many others.

Earth Unrelenting is a face-paced action-packed story. I could not put it down. I love the Sheriff Duke character. The Sheriff is in another M. R. Forbes story. It’s great to be learning more about and enjoying this character again.

Jonathan Davis is a favorite narrator of mine. Davis does a fantastic job with this action-packed post-apocalyptic thriller. Davis gives each character an individual personality. I’m addicted to listening to this series along with the series itself. M. R. Forbes is extraordinarily detail-oriented. I’ve read and or listened to many of his books. I will not stop.

Phantoms by Dean Koontz


Can the small mountain town of Snowfield, California, disappear? It seems that way to the doctor of this small ski town when she returns home with her much younger sister. Everyone is gone. The few people found can’t share anything that happened to them.

Some bizarre things have and are happening to this town. Shadows. Flashing lights. Bodies. The source of this nightmare is well hidden. Dean Koontz has penned another nightmare onto paper.
