Impact by Andreas Christensen
Narrated by Stephen Bel Davies

Fire Storm: Zulu Virus Chronicles #3 by Steven Konkoly
Narrated by Charles Hubbell
Something merciless watches over the outbreak – guiding its course.
Having narrowly survived the Kill Box, Hot Zone‘s hardened survivors and their Kill Box allies separate to pursue different objectives – outside of the Indianapolis quarantine zone.
For David Olson, that means bringing his son south to the safe haven of his parents’ home – far away from the infected cities. Eric Larsen takes him up on the offer to rest and heal at the house before departing on the long journey to find his family in Colorado.
For Rich and his secretive black ops team, that means transporting Dr. Chang and Dr. Hale to a secure facility out east, where they will join the nation’s few surviving bio-weapons researchers – with the hopes of pinpointing the source of the virus and possibly developing a vaccine.
Neither group will get very far before the true face of the evil controlling the Zulu Virus arrives – tempting them with irresistible opportunities.
Dangerous opportunities, with the potential to sweep them right into a lethal firestorm.
Survive: Live Free or Die #1 by Shawn Underhill
Narrated by Paul Costanzo
“We must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.” -Benjamin Franklin in the Continental Congress before signing the Declaration of Independence
Set against the backdrop of the isolated forests north of New Hampshire’s White Mountains, while camping on family land, Tom and Lori Thornton (and their dog, Buck) find themselves in a sudden SHTF scenario.
No cellular service. Dangerous roads. Limited supplies. And far more questions than answers.
After the shocking murder of Tom’s uncle by a band of looters, the couple’s already faltering marriage reaches the breaking point amid the chaos. Trust and loyalties are challenged, old friendships are put to the test, and while immediate answers and solutions elude them, they must rely on raw instincts in order to survive.
When David’s wife dies at the hands of a corrupt medical system, David is out for justice. With his skills as a lawyer and his position inside the biggest health insurance company in America – American True Care – he plans to bring down the system, from the inside.
David begins to work his way up the company while recruiting a clandestine team to build a covert case against American True Care. But this is a dangerous game and the players have ties to the highest levels of government. Propped up by lobbyists, senators, congressmen, and even the White House, American True Care will do whatever it takes to keep hold of its power.
As the web of deception and danger tightens around David and his team, they begin to realize that to win they have to risk it all – even their lives.

Tainted World: Rememdium Series #4 by Ashely Fontainne
Narrated by Rebecca Roberts
The final installment of what happens when a miraculous cure ends up destroying the entire world.
When Dr. Everett Berning’s discovery of a permanent cure for drug addiction fell into the hands of Benito San Nicholas, head of the Alvarado cartel in El Salvador – the end result was the dead took over the world.
In less than 48 hours, narcotics tainted with fungal spores are deployed around the globe and mankind’s existence hangs in the balance. Nowhere is safe as the death toll mounts and the reanimated corpses aren’t the only threat.
The remaining members of Project Rememdium and the small contingent of survivors from Arkansas band together. The decision is made to flee to a safer location, yet Teresa Alvarado had other intentions. Once in the air, hell-bent on finding Benito San Nicholas and killing him for what he’s done, Teresa Alvarado forced the pilot to take them to her native El Salvador.
Will Teresa’s own personal vendetta actually offer hope to Dr. Berning and the rest of the world?
Or will the dangerous jungles of El Salvador be the place where all hope is lost and they take their final breaths?
The Culling by Ramona Finn
Narrated by Stacey Glemboski
In a solar system where The Authority decides who lives and who dies, only one of their own executioners can stop them.
Glade Io is a trained killer. Marked at a young age as an individual with violent tendencies, she was taken from her family and groomed to be a Datapoint-a biotech-enabled analyst who carries out the Culling. She is designed to identify and destroy any potential humans that threaten the colonies: those marked as lawbreakers, unproductive or sick. But when she’s kidnapped by rogue colonists known as the Ferrymen, everything Glade thinks she knows about the colonies, and The Authority that runs them, collapses into doubt.
Pulled between two opposing sides, and with her family’s lives hanging in the balance, Glade is unsure of who to trust-and time is running out.
