It starts with a thunderous crack and a flash of light. Screams come next. Then the hunters. With a staccato flicker, light disappears and everything within a hundred-yard radius goes with it. All that remains is a massive crater where a chunk of the world has gone missing. As the deadly phenomenon repeats and expands amidst the world's most densely populated cities, Jack Sigler, Callsign: King, and his black ops team take action. But the team is broken, spread across the globe, and vulnerable.

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean's deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face to face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he's sure he saw but still can't prove exists - Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life.

i downloaded this book expecting it to be like the movie but either the movie was wayyyy off or this is a different Meg book. But i much preferred this book. The narrator took a bit of getting used to but he didba great job.

Stranded in the Amazon rainforest, a lost man fights for survival and discovers that the root of evil doesn’t just reside in the world’s darkest corners, but inside the hearts of all mankind. Dr. Gregory Zekser is on a mission to visit the furthest reaches of the Amazon, providing medical aid to recently contacted tribes. As a general practitioner and food pantry director, his life in Massachusetts can be chaotic, but serving people is what he does best, and he doesn’t mind sacrificing his personal life to help others, at home or half way around the world.

A thrilling new novella from best-selling author Greig Beck - starring the formidable Alex Hunter. When the coalition of Allied Forces established an international zone in Iraq, they meant to bring peace to the region. They were succeeding - until the moment something hulked into the zone and detonated a nuclear bomb. The last images from the area prior to the blast are not of drones or the trail of an ICBM. Instead they show a solitary figure carrying the enormous weapon to the soon-to-be ground zero on its back.

A small change today can change our tomorrow. A small change 100 million years ago can change everything. No one really noticed when things started to change. Some animals vanished. Some new ones appeared. Then some things appeared that were monstrous. No one seemed to notice except Ben Cartwright and the other survivors of hidden plateau in the depths of the Amazon jungle. Only they were aware of the growing threat to the human race.

They say Black Dow's killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbour, is not about to stand smiling by while he claws his way any higher. The orders have been given and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.

you have to be rerealistic ...after listening to all of Joe's other books and reading the reviews about this one i was very excited..but over all i was un satisfied...it was true to form hilarious, bloody and entertaining but i found i got lost in the apparent 3 days of battle...i was expecting so much more...3 continuous days maybe..no stopping just because it got dark..i still highly recommend the book..the narration was spot on..and Gorste had me wanting to grab him and well...you know...😜 The ending was dragged out and that twist kinda ruined it for me :(
