For fans of Stephen King, David Gerrold, and Richard Matheson, picture this: The world is being eaten by monsters and there's nothing you can do about it.

Four weeks ago...

Everything seemed fine.

Life was as we knew it.

Nothing was out of place.

Three weeks ago...

The first tiny creature, no bigger than a thumb, crawled out of the dark loamy earth of an Iowa corn field.

Two weeks ago...

Creatures came from the ground in every country, from the smallest maggot-sized killer, to Cadillac-sized devourers, each one eating everything in sight, their apparent desire, to cleanse the earth of any vestige of mankind.

Two days ago...

Our hero, Buckly Adamski, watched the Governor of North Carolina start to dance and go crazy on the television, it wasn't until the very end that the television announcer blew his brains out over the impossibility of it all.

Yesterday...

Planes crashed to the ground, the Eiffel Tower crumbled, trains stopped running, the power went out, and the entire human race (what was left of it) paused to take a breath, wondering if it would be their last.

Tonight...

Buckley gathered those he could save in the penthouse of an old building in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. Monsters are eating the city around them. They know they must leave. They know they have to make a run for it. But they also don't want to die.

And there is an answer, but it will come from the craziest of places.

This audiobook also contains an essay called The True Adventures of a Monster Screenplay in B-Movie Wonderland, which tells the tale of how the screenplay based on this novel was almost sold to Wesley Snipes, with many of the industry's top horror movie stars attached to the film.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/10/2014

    " Jeff Shaara just isn't as good as father Michael. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeleine | 2/10/2014

    " I love the way Shaara writes. He brings history to life with a realism and human touch that I find very engaging. His books are novels, since he has invented dialogue and invented minor characters, but it's all grounded in the facts. This book about the Battle of Shiloh captures a part of the Civil War that I, for one, know less about, and I found it a fascinating read. If you like history, this is a good one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 2/8/2014

    " I enjoyed this book as I have all of the Shaara books... keep them coming! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tim Settles | 2/1/2014

    " Jeff Shaara is one of my favorite writers. Once again, his ability to put you in the heart of the battle equals few others. While it is considered a historical fiction, he follows the actual events in the battle of Shiloh with a perspective of what it may have actually been like to be there in Shiloh in 1862. I highly recommend this book and any of the Shaara books to all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gary Baughn | 1/24/2014

    " Not as good as his father's Killer Angels (about Gettysburg), but that is a high standard. This is an interesting fictionalization of the battle of Shiloh in the 2nd year of the Civil War. This three day battle totalled more casualties than all battles the US had fought in its history up until that point, including the Revolution, War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War. Shaara gets into the heads of several prominent and ordinary participants of this often overlooked (except of course for Neil Diamond) battle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Carlson | 1/21/2014

    " Got this from the library and I'm glad I did. Shaara (and his dad) do a good job of writing historical novels. Most of my reading on the Civil War has been on the eastern side; this is the first of a trilogy on the western front. Quite good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bryan Robinson | 1/16/2014

    " Fine addition to Shaara's Civil War novels. I'm glad to hear that this is the beginning of a new Civil War trilogy of books that cover the western theater of the war. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig Earnshaw | 12/31/2013

    " We spent a day at Shiloh Battlefield which made this more interesting. Fills in details of the battle but not a page-turner. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Wadovick | 12/26/2013

    " Jeff Shaara at his best. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for His next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dalen | 12/19/2013

    " Interesting historical content - but maybe too much. I would have liked the surrounding story to be developed more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Lierman | 12/14/2013

    " The Author portrays the day to day struggle of the North and South as they do what soldiers must do in the time of war. The horrors and reality of battle come to life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin | 12/1/2013

    " Slow start; ended up being well worth the read. The description of the Shiloh battlefield as the Federal counterattacked on Day 2 is as sobering as it is riveting. That part, especially, was a fine piece of writing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/13/2013

    " It was a good person-centered introduction to the Battle of Shiloh "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ayelet | 9/27/2013

    " Jeff Shaara has written yet another great book where you empathize with the characters. It was also exciting to read as I have been to the battlefield and could really picture the locations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 8/14/2013

    " Definitely not as good as his Gettysburg books, or his father's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 7/31/2013

    " Really got me inside the battle of Shiloh. But wasn't drawn into the characters quite as much as in previous books. Still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey | 4/21/2013

    " As with his other books I totally enjoyed the narrative while learning something too. Looking forward to rest of the trilogy. A bit hopeful Shaara will figure a way to capture time and personality without a war. Sadly/gladly he's running out of conflicts to write about. Korea or Vietnam Next?? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve White | 4/17/2013

    " great study of the people behind the action. I'm not a civil war person so the absence of tactics made this very spray appealing. I don't live far from Corinth, and after reading this I may have to visit there now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nevin Goodman | 3/16/2013

    " Slower than any of his previous books and a little boring. Had trouble finishing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 12/23/2012

    " Alternating perspectives from high-ranking generals to front-line infantrymen, Shaara depicts the fear and fury that the Federal and Confederate soldiers endured during this deadly Civil War battle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christopher Keen | 12/7/2012

    " Other than Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure, this is the best book he has written. I love his writing, and the other books he's done, but I do believe he's up there with Cormac McCarthy to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. "
