Tales of the Forgotten (Volume II in the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Series)
The world is at war with the Primal Virus. Military forces across the globe have been recalled to defend the homelands as the virus spreads and decimates populations.
Out on patrol and assigned to a remote base in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson's unit was abandoned and left behind, alone and without contact.
They survived and have built a refuge, but now they are forgotten. No contact with their families or commands.
Brad makes a tough decision to leave the safety of his compound to try and make contact with the States, desperate to find rescue for his men.
What he finds is worse than he could have ever predicted.

Staff Sergeant Brad Thompson and a small portion of his unit (Sean and Brooks) have survived the initial few days of the Primal Virus. Determined to save his men and find word about home, Brad leaves the compound his men and a few other local survivors have fortified. No word from anyone, satellite phones dead and no way to arrange a rescue mission for them, they leave the compound in search of answers and possible rescue.
Joining with Hassan, a guide and a Taliban fighter, they travel the wasteland. Finding a facility with batteries and other military items, the team makes satellite phone contact with other military officials. These officials provide information for the Brad and his team to maneuver safely through the terrain. In exchange for their rescue, they need to perform a snatch and grab.
This book was longer and even richer in detailed descriptions. The first book did what it needed to set the stage for this book. The feeling of abandonment, joy, fear and suspicion was communicated so clearly that one had no choice but to connect with the characters.
The writing style is laid back, realistic, and flows seamlessly. There were no distracting storylines; the author did an excellent job of staying on target. Action packed; there is no rest for Brad, Sean or Brooks as they manage to land in one tight spot after another.
Eric Vincent again did an excellent job narrating. His voice is expressive.
Audio production was good except the music at times was a bit loud and long at the beginning of some chapters but was a nice touch for building suspense.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys military action with zombie action.
