NIGHTBLOOD by T. Chris Martindale
Nightblood - T. Chris Martindale

3.5/5 stars!

 

This was total 80's, cheesy, horror fun. Uzis and vampires in a small town. There's so many horror tropes involved I don't know where to begin, so I think I'll just leave it at that.

 

My complaints mostly focus on the fact that the book is a bit too long. If you don't take things too seriously, and you enjoy that fun, silly Rambo-like type of horror, than this is for you!

 

 

Recommended!

DEEP SILENCE by Jonathan Maberry, narrated by Ray Porter
Deep Silence (Joe Ledger #10) - Jonathan Maberry,Ray Porter

What a ride!

 

Here we join Captain Ledger and the DMS team, once again facing bad publicity and once again, saving the world.

 

Everyone is here, including Mr. Church, Aunt Sally and Ghost. Instead of Doctor Hu, we now have Doc Holiday, and, (of course), she's related to the real Doc Holiday.

 

This series has been a huge part of my life over the past 6 months. I feel like I know all of these people, (and Ghost), as well as, or maybe even better than, my own family. In fact, I like these people MORE than most of my own family.

 

Thanks to Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter for the many, many hours of enjoyment I've spent with the Department of Military Sciences. I'm looking forward to joining everyone again in RAGE: ROGUE TEAM INTERNATIONAL.

 

Until then? HOOAH!

 

*I rejoined Audible solely due to this series. I was tired of waiting for the audios to come in at the library. Plus, the library didn't have them all on audio. I do not for one second regret this decision.*

KILL SWITCH by Jonathan Maberry, narrated by Ray Porter
Kill Switch: A Joe Ledger Novel - Jonathan Maberry

I know I’ve said this about previous books in this series, but this is my favorite entry as of now. 

 

 Having the advantage of starting a series once it’s already finished-I know Joe will make it through. Everyone else though? I genuinely was afraid for Top, Bunny, Church, and the gang. 

 

I enjoyed the references to Lovecraft and other pulp fiction writers and combined with the real tension I felt for these characters- I feel this volume surpassed the others. 

 

Bring on the next book! 

 

* I downloaded the audio of this book free from my local library. Libraries RULE! *

** Listening to these free library downloads has hooked me on this series. As such, I’ve rejoined Audible so I don’t have to wait for library holds to arrive. So, attention publishers! Free access to books and audiobooks at local libraries can and does lead to actual sales. **

Predator One by Jonathan Maberry, narrated by Ray Porter
Predator One: A Joe Ledger Novel - Jonathan Maberry

This was another action packed thriller from the team of Jonathan Maberry, the author, and Ray Porter, the narrator.

 

 

There was a bit of down time in this one, while Joe was out of the picture for a bit, but wow! Towards the end things accelerated so quickly I could barely catch my breath. I'm looking forward  to continuing on to the next volume in the series.

 

I found the audio at my library and there's only 1 person waiting for it, so I requested a hold and by the time I'm done with the audio I'm currently reading, I'll be back with my beloved Joe again.

CODE ZERO by Jonathan Maberry, narrated by Ray Porter
Code Zero - Jonathan Maberry

The Joe Ledger series is a perfect example of how a great audiobook narrator can add to the magic of good writing. When both are combined together as they were in CODE ZERO? It's close to perfection.

 

Mother Night was an excellent, well drawn character with all kinds of evil levels. Her plans to lead Joe Ledger and his team on a wild good chase worked so well, I was genuinely afraid that I was going to have to say goodbye to a few beloved characters. Did I have to do that? You'll have to read CODE ZERO to find out!

 

I will say this: that ending had me driving down the highway legit crying.

 

Highly recommended, (but you should probably read the preceding books in the series first!)

 

*I bought this audio book with my hard earned cash because Joe Ledger, Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter MADE ME! (I could NOT continue waiting for each volume from the library.)*
