A New York Times best-selling author and multiple Bram Stoker Award winner, Marvel Comics writer Jonathan Maberry continues the story he began in Rot and Ruin. Six months have passed since Benny Imura and Nix Riley learned that flesh-eating zombies aren’t the scariest or most dangerous monsters around. Now, Benny’s brother Tom is training them in the art of zombie whacking. But as they plan to leave and find a better future, a zombie attack puts a crimp in their plans. And soon, they discover an old enemy they believed was long-gone may actually still be alive. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Hutchison.

In the fall of 1969, three brothers, Adam, Carl and Mark, venture out on Halloween night in what would be their last time trick-or-treating together. On the most sacred of all nights, these brothers will try almost anything in their relentless pursuit to acquire as much candy as they can during the Super Bowl of sugar bliss, Halloween. The oldest brother (Adam) creates a plan of attack that will allow them to retrieve the maximum amount of candy in the shortest period of time. Even though it’s a Friday night their father has set a 10 o’clock curfew which must be followed. To breach the curfew could result in all candy being confiscated and weeks of sugar withdrawal. On this Halloween night, the brothers encounter a few sweet old ladies and a grumpy old man that not only looks creepy, but also happens to live right next to the Cemetery. And if that isn’t scary enough they also encounter the only man more frightening than the Grim Reaper himself on Halloween - the dentist, who is giving out floss and lecturing kids about the dangers of sugar and tooth decay. Adam decides the last house they will visit is the one house the youngest brother, Mark, has been dreading all night, The Haunted House. Mark is convinced the house is not only haunted, but that there is someone watching him from inside each time he passes by on his way home from school alone. What they see and hear at the haunted house is something that most adults can no longer see. That is, the unadulterated wonder of youth, the power of imagination and the unbreakable bond between brothers that no ghost or goblin can ever take away. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael L.

With Caesar´s assassination comes renewed civil war. The aristocratic senatorial faction is defeated and the Republican form of government is replaced by dictatorship. Caesar´s adopted nephew, Augustus, comes to power as the first Roman Emperor and puts into place the most extraordinary experiment in imperial government ever attempted. In the process, he paves the way for a long period of peace, a golden age, the likes of which has never before been seen. The Empire is ruled by one dynasty after another - some good, some bad - until it reaches its apogee during the age of the brilliant Antonine emperors. But chaos follows with a series of corrupt rulers, and only the strong leadership of Diocletion 85 years later brings stability. Shortly afterward, Constantine´s rule promotes the new faith of Christianity and makes it the official religion of the empire. But the downward spiral of decay cannot be reversed. Economic disruptions, plague and barbarian invasions prove too much for Rome, and the western half of the empire descends into a maelstrom of ignorance, dispair and random violence from which it will not emerge for many centuries. This is Volume 2 of A History of Rome (Unabridged). Have you heard Volume 1? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Charlton Griffin.
