Description

Captain Dominic Holland leads a crew of skilled covert operatives and talented scientific personnel. He's taken them to all corners of the Earth to protect the United States from biological and chemical warfare. When his CIA handler, Meredith Webb, gives him a mission to investigate a disturbing lead on a laboratory based out of an abandoned oil rig, they discover the most terrifying threat to mankind they've ever faced - a genetically engineered biological weapon called the Oni Agent.

Back in the United States, Meredith discovers a frightening connection between the CIA and the Oni Agent. But her investigations are short-lived when the agent spreads and brings mankind to its knees. Cities burn as it turns humans into warped creatures hell-bent on destruction.

Dominic and Meredith vow to do everything they can to combat the agent and find a cure. But will their efforts be enough to turn the tide - or is humanity's fate already sealed?

Great start! Repeat listener, right here.

This is a great start to a new series. 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. I've listened to this book twice already. The first time, my mind was blown but the second book wasn't out. I decided to listen again before I played the second book and I was just as impressed the second time as the first. Definitely worth a credit.

The Tide Series by Anthony J Melchiorri

First time reading Mr Melchiorri I am now a fan forever! Great story and narration I was pulled into the characters lives and predicaments from the first chapter.
I don't want to give away any of the stories but if you enjoy apocalypse fiction from teotwawki to zombies, you will love this series.
I can not wait for the next audiobook to come out!!

It's ok.

The voice performer's affectations of the various characters can sometimes be annoying. It's bad when he's doing a female voice or affectation of panic. That's just my opinion. Otherwise the reader has a pleasant voice and reading style.

The story was an eye roller in places. It seemed juvenile at times. I chalk this up to being the first book in a series. Almost like a pilot episode of a tv series is usually the worst.

I'm moderately interested in what happens next and so I'll try the next book. Given that there are many books in this series I'm fairly confident that it gets better.

The twist on the "zombie/infected" is interesting. Different.

WWZ meets Resident Evil

Take the best part of Resident Evil and mix it with the intelligent science part of World War Z and you have The Tide. There is nothing new here, but it is a fine piece of suspenceful entertainment.

The Tide

interesting story that puts a big twist on zombies. strong characters, I like that along with the tough men, the author has strong mind and bodied women that play key roles . The Narrator does a fabulous job with the different characters voices, it always makes a big difference to the listening pleasures. I am a long haul truck driver and audio books are a life savor for the endless miles. this book is a good one. you won't be disappointed.

Very suspenseful, couldn't stop reading.

Great suspense. I am not a huge fan of zombie gore but am a fan of pandemic stories. This is a spin on the zombie genre but with more medical realism to explain the spread. It was a good story where you liked the characters and good narration. This is a complete story with character goals clearly set, leading up to a the big conflict where it resolves at a good stopping point for a series so you are not left hanging too badly. I appreciate the author giving you enough to feel like you read a whole story and did not rely on a gimmicky cliffhanger that you might see from lesser authors.

Good book

Fast-paced biotech

Captain Dominic Holland (Dom) is head of a covert operations team which investigates bioterrorism. As he and his team check out some suspicious activity on what was believed to be an abandoned oil rig, bone-armored mutant men begin to wash up on shores of countries around the world. Soon, citizens become crazed - brutally attacking and devouring people. Dom's team rushes to find a cure to the bioweapon, as civilization crashes around them.


I found this book in the new releases in Audible and thought I'd try it out. The genre is basically bioweapon zombie apocalypse, but the "zombies" aren't actually zombies. They are living humans who develop bony armor around their bodies and get brain activation of unthinking violence. It was a fast-paced, high-action book. The science was very reasonable - clearly Melchiorri did his research - which I like to see in biotech books (otherwise I tend to roll my eyes and criticize every little mistake). Yes, the race for a cure moved along much too fast to be realistic, but that's the nature of the genre, not a problem with Melchiorri's writing. Nobody wants to read a book with the pacing of real life, after all. :)

I think this book will be quite enjoyable to anyone who likes biotech apocalypse thrillers, especially those who enjoyed Jonathan Maberry's Patient Zero. But beware, it is the first in a series, and the story just cuts off at the end - there's not a satisfying conclusion. Luckily, Melchiorri is releasing the second one hot on the heals of the first, so this may not be an issue for many readers.

The narration of this story was generally well-done. The pacing was good. The voices could have been a little better - Burke didn't do women's voices very well, which I imagine is a difficult, though manageable, skill for male readers.

The Tide

An enGROSSing tale with characters so vivid I can practically see and touch them. This isn't the kind of story I usually read, but I just bought the second book and am eager to begin.
