Publisher's Summary

Beth, forever fanning the flames of tension and dissension, has the Stryvers, the Progerians, and the entire human race on the brink of annihilation. It is up to Michael Talbot, BT, Drababan, and the United Earth Marine Corps to stave off this extinction event, along with General Ginson aboard the outgunned, outmanned, and nearly crippled USS Guardian. Is it too late, or can it all still be saved?

    "Another stonker of a story!"

    I love Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series but there are times when this Indian Hill series is my favourite. This is one of those times.

    This latest story is full of everything you'd expect from Tufo; great characters, humour, excitement and pain. The progression of the war and the characters within it continues to thrill and feels so natural despite the subject matter. Enemies and alliances, friends and foes all battle through this book with Michael Talbot always the link between them. There are new characters to fall in love with, to fear, and to be wary of. And the play between BT and D is priceless. I found tears in my eyes more than once listening to this book. From both laughter and sadness.

    Brilliant writing. Brilliant character development. (I know a character is written well when I feel the need to punch them myself for their behaviour!)

    The second epilogue is a real treasure. Painfully bitter sweet. A story I'm both glad and sad to know.

    As ever, Sean Runnette breathes life into Tufo's already lively words. His delivery is rich and his comic timing perfect. The voice of Mike Talbot will only ever be Sean Runnette for me.

    "There are great writers then there is Mark Tufo"
    Any additional comments?

    A brilliantly written book again as normal, shame only 1 more to come in the series. I have written many reviews about all Mark Tufo books but after listening to many great books recently I was nervous it would be as good as normal but it was better. Why? it is like comming home it is a great story but with a humor that brings you into the book to be part of it. I think that is Marks skill, other books are very very good and the story is brilliant. But a Mark Tufo book it very very good but it has another dimension, it engulfs you and draws you in you become part of the story, you laugh and cry with the story. For me it is the humour that draws me in from listening to being part of the book. Gutted only 1 more in series to come but always following the group in other books also. 100% recommend this and other Tufo books

    "A great story with laughs, action, and feel"

    The amazing thing about this ongoing story about Indian Hill, is it ability to expand into new areas of action. Space. Ground. Dialog. Epic battles and it never gets old. Filled with actions that mirror absolute friendship, loyalty and the importance of survival. Mike still hovers with reality and not taking things too seriously. Deep down, he fully grasps the reality of everything happening but he protects himself with a armor of laughs. Often confusing or frustrating his friends and allies but giving all of us a good time.

    And yet somehow in the midst of all this patent ridiculosity. It manages to be serious. An edge to whats really a state. Confusing the listener as to not be able to tell what will happen next. Pressure based, because you never know just who might perish from the next battle.

    And at over five books at the time of this writing, it's hard to deny that this new chapter is epic. It will make you laugh like a kid at the circus. It will make tears spring to your eyes with laughter. It will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more while still leaving you with a sense of gleeful satisfaction after nearly every chapter.

    Indian hill introduced me to Michael Talbot. If you haven't heard of him in any of his parallel universe based stories, for the sake of all that is right, please do.

    I highly recommend this tale. :)

    "Narrator always does a good job."

    I returned this book because I can't bring myself to listen to another story along the Michael Talbot timelines that Mark Tufo is writing about. At first I really enjoyed the first Zombie books and the Indian Hill stories. But after so many books, one can start guessing how the story is going to go, what smart a** answers Talbot is going to give or what insane event will occur that Talbot will inadvertently find his way out of. I'm going to miss these stories but I cannot listen to another one again. Pick a series by Mark Tufo and stick with it. They are all good. I'm just burned out with trying to keep up with all of them. Honestly, they've begun to bleed together. Using the same characters didn't help. If Mr. Tufo starts another series that has nothing to do with Michael Talbot, I will buy it.

    "Mark Tufo has done it again!"

    This was a great addition to the Indian Hill series. These books will have you laughing out loud, cringing and maybe even shedding a tear or two. This book brings us back into Michael talbot universe where we can almost feel ourselves fighting alongside Mike, Tracy, BT and D against the aliens! Marks writing and Sean Runnette's performance brings you into another world and it's amazing! Don't miss this one.

    I absolutely loved this book! I'm always excited for Mark's book, he has a way of bringing his characters to life, without drawing things out too much. If you love this series try out the zombie fallout one. I've always been impressed with his writing style, I've never read an author that was able to have you biting your nails one minute then have you laughing about aliens, zombies and werewolves the next.
