The offer - $20 billion split between four leading scientists on alternative energies to purchase and then squash their research lines, which include the recent discovery of a powerful new energy source capable of replacing mankind’s reliance on fossil fuels. There’s no doubt their discovery is worth 10 times that much. But will any one of them live if they refuse?

It started with bright lights; a new medical technology, promising to eradicate all human ills. History of blood clots? Cholesterol clogging up the old ticker? There was a nanobot for that. It wasn’t cheap of course, and everyone knew that new technology had bugs in it. But hey, why not let the rich be the guinea pigs for once? Fast-forward a year, and the one percent began dying en masse. The nanobots had evolved to view aging as a virus and were reacting by shutting down the host.

I have read a number of these apocalypse stories and this is one of the best. The story is believable and very entertaining and it leads in to the series very nicely.

I have listened to books performed by this narrator before and that was some of the reason for choosing this as he is very easy to listen to.

I listen to this in my car on the way to and from work and found it very easy to get along with.

I will have to listen this many times before it finally sinks in however that may say more about me than the book !

The performance was pleasant to listen to as well as being a great way of picking up the accent, difficult to do with a book.

I will enjoy this book a number of times more

The Neuroweb began as the greatest invention since written language. A simple brain implant allowed the user to access information, entertainment, and even pain relief. The Neuroweb was the beginning of a golden age for mankind.... Until it was compromised. Everyone with the implant lost his or her most important commodity: free will. The collective human consciousness was hacked and is now directed by artificial intelligence. Only those without the Neuroweb have a chance of resisting...if they dare.

I really enjoyed this end of the world story. I have read some zombie apocalypse stories and this was satisfyingly different.

The story moved along at a good pace, gradually telling the reader about the backstory so we finally understand the situation and how it came to be. The characters and relationship was believable and the author manages to draw you in and carry you along making this an exciting story.

The narrator was excellent as usual, I have listened to him before and continue to be impressed

This was a great book. I knew some of the facts about these stories but I have learned a lot more.

When the world changes, sacrifice is sometimes the only option. While Genevieve and Ellie work to find a cure for the virus, a simple supply run turns into a horrifying experience and one of the team members is lost. But in sacrifice, there is hope; while their work has been slowed by the tragedy, they’ve learned something new about the zombie hordes. Matthew’s own contribution to the survival of his friends is about to be tested as he gathers information that could help Genevieve and Ellie get their research back on track. The clock is ticking, and Matthew can’t be sure if they’ll find the cure in time, or what will be left of them if they can’t find a cure.

I felt that this book ended too quickly, it seemed like it was an episode instead of a full story.Luckily I have read the first story so that helped.
The narrator was excellent and really helped moving the story along.
I would enjoy hearing the next episode.
