What did you like most about To Sail a Darkling Sea?
I really enjoyed this book 2 the whole zombie tale from a new standpoint it a real breath of fresh air to the zombie stories, i really can get behind Faith the hero. If zombies exist then why can't a 13 year old girl that kills them exist? I really enjoyed this book.

I liked this book. A bit slow, but kept my attention. Not gory, and a nice mix of personal and military. The narrator has av good voice, nice rhythm and diction, though I found some of his pronunciations were peculiar, and he didn't seem to know that "M." before a Frenchman's surname means "Monsieur", not his initial. Overall, a good listen.
If you could sum up To Sail a Darkling Sea in three words, what would they be?
This is extremely difficult for me as there is so much in this book that cannot fit in only three words. If forced, however, I would go for alliteration:
Fun, Fighting, Family (or even without the commas)
What other book might you compare To Sail a Darkling Sea to and why?
As with the first book in this series, To Sail a Darkling Sea is my only experience with Zombie Apocalypse books. Characters remind me of other memorable characters from many of John Ringo's other series, but the books are unlike anything I've read before.
Which scene was your favorite?
I think my favorite scene in this book was when Faith is explaining to her commanding officers why she went dress shopping in the middle of an operation. Most of her superiors are male, so they have to contact the very top brass, who is female for both a more experienced and female opinion. Yves St Laurent dresses are, after all, masterpieces. Even men will appreciate the interaction between these two females in a male-dominated chain of command.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book had many more laughing moments than the first of this series. The awards ceremony and the Pass in Review, however, both evoked tears.
Any additional comments?
WARNING for Military listeners: Morris spells out acronyms rather than pronouncing them. If you hate with people spell R-O-W-P-U, this is not the listen for you.
However, Morris IS an excellent voice actor and his performance, especially with the many accented characters in this book, is AMAZING!

My only issue, being former military and having worked in aviation, is the narrator doesn't know military lingo. Often referred to helicopters as "hellos" instead of "he-lows" is something that triggers my ocd. Otherwise, a great series so far. I'm already heading into the next...
