Almost as good as the Fallout series

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

The narrator. Sean is the voice of Mike mother freaking Talbot. He is easy to listen to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Conquest?

The escape.

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

He is no better nor worse in this book he's Mike Talbot

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

Die bitches die

It Was Good.. But Not WOW!!!

I liked this book... There were few points where it was a bit low... but the ending of this book was good, its all a big buildup to the upcoming one... wonder how it will all go ...

To be honest, i like the characters more than the series itself. the zombie fallout series feels much more original than this one. I think more work could have gone into this series to give it more depth i guess... But still its a good series ...

Lets see hows the next book going to be like.

ENDING FIXES ALL !!!

Ending of the great series!!!
Everything is settled,
all plot lines come together and make marvelous work.

From this point on I definitely like "Indian hill" more than "ZF"
and Drababan is my favorite character
I think he is the best one of all ever written by Mark Tufo.

PS
I would like to read a sequel to this series.

TO MY FOLLOWERS:

I don't know what I've done,
but for some reason a single person spends his time
putting the negative mark to every one of my reviews.

He negatively rated 127 of my reviews in a day,
I thought it was someones prank but
recently he reappeared and
repeated the same to those that I wrote since

Please, If you don't like my reviews,
just stop reading them, stop following me.
There is on reason to start a Vengeance Campaign,
Besides I pretty much doubt that you read all 139 books I reviewed.

There is a lot more fighting

The first book “Encounters” was about Mike and his friends being kidnapped by the aliens. How he survived and how he finally returned to Earth after 18 months.

Book 2 “RECKONING” continues the story of what happened on and to the earth after Mike and the aliens arrived. The survival of the main characters in the face of a total breakdown of society.

“Conquest” (I have audio version) picks up where book 2 left off. Beth shot a man and is running scared. Mike wakes up in a hospital in France. FRANCE???? Paul had shot him with a dart. Well you didn’t expect the hero to get killed did you ?
This book details Beth’s journey back to Indian Hill. She had mad man chasing her and she found that children grow up fast in this new world. What she did when she finally got back, well she was in for a big surprise. Full of twists and turns, you will not want to stop reading. Mike is again abouard the alien ship. However, this time he has help for an unexpected source. Mark fully intends to halt the alien invasion and give the Earth another 2 or so years to prepare for the real invasion.

There is a lot more fighting and some good friends are lost. This is a non-stop thrill ride. Just when things look bleak the story takes a left turn. Mark must have a guardian angel on his shoulder. Or maybe, he has some cat in him.

If you can get the audio it is definitely worth it. Read by Sean Runnette and he is excellent. ( though his female voice could be a bit better) I still clung to every word.

I recommend Tufo's books at least twice a week to readers who come to my office.

The reader sucks you into these books.

Three is not a charm.

I liked the first two books of this action/alien series but the final installment was disappointing. The action and conflict of the characters was repetitive. The hero had several women so in love with him they would die for him. There were too many battles and improbable convenient escapes.

Great Ending

Another great book by Mark Tufo, all the excitement and entertainment one has come to expect. I enjoyed the book to the very end and was sad to have the series end. I look forward to my next Mike Talbot adventure

Great series!

Excellent alternate story arch to the main story! Can’t get enough of Mike! Does get a little confusing traveling forward in time with wear wolves, then back in time for aliens then reading the latest zombie book but it’s all great so not a real issue! I honestly don’t know how Mark Tufo keeps all the plates spinning, I’d be constantly mixing things up
