“I thought Robert Petkoff’s narration was amazing  and very impressive especially the narration of the 2 psycho hit men The Blackwell Brothers that are after Jace/Conner then when one of the characters describes how these men talk, it was even more right on because he narrated them exactly how the author describes them. Every character has a distinct voice and his female voices were well done.  I will be seeking out other books Petkoff has narrated. I see he narrates quite a few of Koryta’s books so; I will be listening to more of this author & narrator combo.” ~ Miss Susie

Miss Susie’s full review

“I will admit that I knew nothing about this author going into this book. I selected to review this book based pretty much on the narrator, Robert Petkoff, who I love and list in my top five favorite narrators. I read the synopsis and thought it sounded interesting. Not knowing what I was getting into, I will say that I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book.” ~ Hot Listens

Audio Specific Review: Y’all Bronson Pinchot did a FANTASTIC job! This is a series that I will be switching over to audio from this point out. I read the first two but pretty much loved Bronson’s narration. The only reason that he did not get a 5 is because of the women voices which took some getting used too. 90% of this book is male voices so it was only a little distracting.

RiseAgain

Rise Again: A Zombie Thriller by Ben Tripp and narrated by Kirsten Potter

Reviews

Jenn’s Bookshelves

A completely engaging and rewarding experience, Rise Again is a must read/listen for any zombie fan. Narrated Kirsten Potter.
