Summary

Indian Hill 2: Reckoning starts where the first book in the series left off. After escaping from the Progerian Alien vessel, Michael Talbot is now given the opportunity to hide in obscurity with the rest of the human race or rise to the occasion and once again find himself immersed in a battle that he wants nothing to do with.

Mike goes home and while reconnecting with a family that believed him dead he decides to join whatever resistance force can be mustered to repel the oncoming invasion. As the world of man gets thrust towards the abyss of extinction, two women in love with the same man make a desperate bid to travel across the country to reunite with him.

Mike will suffer the ultimate betrayal from those he loves the most. Will mankind fall and be ground to dust like so many other civilizations or will the tiny humans thwart a takeover? Only time, and shed blood will tell.

Gripping!

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

Brilliant, engrossing, thrilling

What other book might you compare Reckoning to, and why?

I can't think of another book or writer for that matter that even comes close. I loose myself in the worlds Mark Tufo creates, and I can go back again and again without it loosing anything!

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have, (he narrates all Mark Tufo's books, and I have listened to them all) - Sean Runnette always delivers as a narrator. He makes you feel like you know the characters and are part of the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had the time to YES! I have all of the Indian Hill series, Zombie Fallout (so far), Lycan Fallout, Shrouded World etc. and listen to them whenever I have the chance. When I reach the end of the books, I start them over again.

Any additional comments?

Mark Tufo is a writer to become addicted to, and Indian Hill is a great series to start with. I NEVER get bored of the characters or story. I am sure I will still be listening to them in 20 years!
If you are looking for your latest obsession, this is it!

waiting for something to happen

the author seems too caught up in sex, violence and sexual violence to actually get the story moving. little of note occurs, a death or two and then nothing. this is the epitomy of treating water.

addictive!

I am a massive fan of Mark Tufo's books. I The Indian Hill series is another great story. I loved the Zombie Fallout series and this adds another dimension to Mike Talbot's life.



Mark keeps you engaged with the story and always makes you want to read more. This book goes deeper into Mike's experience on the ship and really digs deep into his personality.



A must for all Mike Talbot fans.

Awesome

What made the experience of listening to Reckoning the most enjoyable?

Just when you think Talbot can't have anything more happen to him, it does.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Heck yes. I always feel like I want to rush through these books and I am always sorry when they are done.

Just plain fun

What made the experience of listening to Reckoning the most enjoyable?

I've read or listened to almost all of Marc Tufo's stuff, having more Mike Talbot, who is just a great character, is absolutely fantastic.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mike Talbot. He's got a great wit. He's strong. He thinks beyond himself even while he's broken and in pain. In these books, he is kinda like a super hero, standing up against the aliens and those who chose to use the situation to bring out their worst. In the grans scheme, it really is the adverse moments that show humanity, not the perfect peace times.

Have you listened to any of Sean Runnette’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Sean is consistent. His voice is great and his capturing of characters is inspired.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Aliens, welcome to earth. Aliens, Meet Mike Talbot.

blah

I enjoyed the first book in this series. It was just so weird, it was hard not to.

Reckoning is just stupid without the weird. The plot was minimal. It could have been summed up in a couple of paragraphs. Some of it was really dumb. More than some of it.

Mike Talbot

yes

Any additional comments?

I didn't think I would enjoy the indian Hill Series, but thought I would give it a try because I enjoyed the Zombie Fallout series so much. I was pleasantly Surprised that I enjoyed it just as much as the zombie Fall out series. Mark Tufo is a talent writer and Sean Runnette is a great narrator.

Michael Talbot, our hero, is back

I haven’t read the first Indian Hill book but I am going to. You really should start this series with the first book. In the Reckoning you pick up were the first book left off.

Michael Talbot, our hero, is back on earth and he knows that the Progerians are coming and what they plan for our small world. They have done the same thing on many other worlds. However, they have never fought Humans before.

This book is more about the results of the first alien attack and the aftermath of the destruction of the military and government. Without rules, chaos.

This book shows how fast everything can fall apart. The three story lines involve Mike, now 21, Deb and Beth, and Paul. Deb and Beth are the two young women that Mike loves. They were on the alien ship with him and other humans. Paul is Mike’s best friend. They grew up together. Paul thought that Mike had been killed and he had started to put together a secret army to fight the aliens.

The story goes back and forth from one character to the other showing what each of them has had to do to survive. Civilization has collapsed and this is humanity at its worst. Remains of National Guard and Police try to keep some balance of order but the dregs are taking over.

Mr. Tufo has added depth to his characters in this book. You can love,hate, pity, and despise them all at the same time. Lots of action and blood shed and a last page that will leave you ……

This audio book was read by Sean Runnette. He has a wonderful voice and his narration was exciting. He gave life to the characters with feeling. He performed each character with just the right expression and emotion. Excellent rendition.

The audio production was also excellent. Every word was clear. No static or unwanted skips.

Tufo must hate humanity

I don't want to spoil anything but tufo must hate the human race, almost everyone in this book is despicable.. I understand there are a lot of jerks in the world but tufo's depiction of the apocalypse is rife with the worst of the worst.. I don't think the characters ever run into anyone with a conscience. Even national guardsmen are no more then a gang of thugs.. Pauls story almost made me turn this off and I have read every tufo book there is so far, this series being my last. The twist with Paul didn't make any sense either since mike was quarantined by the military upon arrival (assume an MRI would be standard) but anyway at least in the ZF books mike occasionally ran into decent people.. In this it seems like everyone just sucks.. So aside from mike and maybe the girls every other character was just terrible. Makes me sick of hearing it.. Almost like the news media. I am going to give the next book a chance but this one is truly a low point for me with Tufo. Sean Runnette is great as always.

Please do some research before you start writing!

I still like the concept.... HOWEVER.... If you are going to start writing about the military, you need to do some research into the military. My God, this book has got to be the worst piece I've ever read (or heard in this case) misusing military jargon, lifestyle, rank... Well, absolutely everything! No Marine would ever just accept someone giving anyone a uniform and proclaiming themselves a Marine. Even if that was their son. The title is earned. And this crap about just calling yourself a rank makes it so and everyone else is supposed to respect you?? Really? Uh no. I guess Beth can just proclaim herself world empress too, right?? And the killer of all killers... How is it possible that Mike spends a week with a group of scientists who find nothing yet his friend Paul gives him an MRI and finds out he has been bugged??? Seriously??? What did he do with the scientists then for the entire week, drink beers?

One Man....Aliens

The moment Mike goes back to the ship...

Mike Talbott

Absolutely

Any additional comments?

This book is a great edition to the first, I finished them both in 3 days, now I can't wait to start the third!! IF you are looking for an author that has a writing style that makes you feel like you are listening to the guy tell you a story this is it!!! Mark Tufo makes you feel like you are sitting at table listening to the first hand account of the story!!
