This series is excellent! I can't wait for book three. There's a great mix of action and drama. The dialogue also fantastic. He really does a great job with character development which is hard to do with this type of genre. Everything played out in my head like a really good movie that you don't want to end. Basically a bio-weapon has been unleashed throughout the world and the Hunters are charged with saving what's left of humanity while stopping those that are infected, the skulls, from taking over the world. There's no need to read any more reviews. If you read the first one and liked it even a little. Then you'll love this one.

After destroying the oil rig housing the enemy lab, Captain Holland & crew along with the CIA handler Meredith Webb make their way to Fort Detrick. Once upon-a-time the Army base was the center for the United States’ bio-defense. Also, back in post WWII days it was home to scientists, both American and Japanese, working on black projects of the biological and chemical warfare type. Perhaps it is more than coincidental that the government chose Fort Detrick once again as central headquarters for the biological research. Captain Holland & crew are assigned to protect Fort Detrick and its inhabitants from the roaming infected folks commonly called “Crazies”. Later, Holland will also be charged with inspecting and administering a bug-out location when the situation demands it. There’s plenty of action to go along with the dialog and sub-plots within the story. Decent characters without a lot of background brought forward from book one. I hesitate to rate this book higher than three.point.five as the tempo slows then picks up with action then slows again. I’m hoping this improves or ceases in the next book.

as it was seconed series i thought id try it but couldnt finish it not a zommbie fan
What did you like most about Breakwater?
the high-paced action driven storyline
Who was your favorite character and why?
the huntress's helicopter pilot, charismatic, brought a ray of controlled humor through the haze of stress, death and destruction
Have you listened to any of Ryan Kennard Burke’s other performances? How does this one compare?
yes, Ryan's performance in this production has been drastically improved from the first book, there was more life, excitement, the characters were more distinguishable, their emotions had feeling and purpose
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
chapter 24 onwards, the assault/rescue of the naval base, there was a noticeable improvement in both the writing, (detail and selection of words) and the narrator's performance, chapter 24 onwards was like a different more improved book.
Any additional comments?
the detail to the bio-medical detail is astounding, it's what makes this series unique and a joy to listen to, also the armoured zombies and the arrival of the bigger and meaner skull.
