The Candle Flickers Yet every ship and town holds the flickering hope of survivors. One and two from lifeboats, a dozen from a fishing village, a few hundred wrenched by fury and fire from a ship that once housed thousands If Wolf Squadron can accomplish that task, an even tougher trial awaits: an apocalyptic battle to win a new dawn for humanity.
The war for civilization begins as the boats of the Wolf Squadron become a beacon of hope on a Darkling Sea.

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? 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 Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book and this series is excellent, shut your mind off and just enjoy the ride fun. The primary characters are a 13 year old Marine lieutenant and her 15 year old Navy ensign sister.
It's ridiculous. However, it's a zombie apocalypse, so deal with it. Who was your favorite character and why? Faith Marie Smith. A 13 year old zombie annhilator par-excellance. She's just flat out fun to read.
Character accents. I enjoyed Tristan Morris' ability to do some reasonable accents. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Yes, indeed.
We've crossed much of the same ground from Fort Bragg to Europe, the Caribbean, etc Otherwise, a great series so far. Added to Cart. He examines politics and government, which are two entirely different things, economy and order, how to mesh civilian and military discipline and how to raise children in a world that is not their own. All an all, an excellent rendition. Other Popular Editions of the Same Title. James W.
Minor quibbles. Also, there were some odd pauses during some sections.
Not enough to detract from enjoying the story, but noticeable. All an all, an excellent rendition. The series is less than a year old, and I've read them multiple times. Its nice to be able to listen to them as well. John Ringo can sure spin a story and develop characters. He is clearly an intelligent writer. However, there are none too subtle strains of racism, sexism and antisemitism in his work. He is also rabidly political, all of which baffled me. LULz 5. Would you recommend To Sail a Darkling Sea to your friends? Why or why not? Depends on the friend.
Which character — as performed by Tristan Morris — was your favorite? Whichever one said "barbie guns" the least. Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The authors endless fanboying of the 7. It moved me to never purchase a firearm in that caliber.
For the love of god, 5. Are you kidding me? The rounds are dropping nearly feet from the point of aim. Holy crap.
Obligatory: barbie gun, barbie gun, 5. The story, for end-of-world-in-horrible-plague, is fun, in implausible way. Teenage girls rock battle, sailing and tactics against zombie apocalypse. Down side - the narrator ruined the book. The earlier review lauding the narrator's performance had to be written by agent, BFF, or relative. The accents are just OFF.
His emotion range is flat. There is little character to character "voice". The characters occasionally sing - narrator speaks these portions in flat tone, killing the plot effect. His voice, in a crash-bang-kill to survive plot is boarding on effeminate. I checked and this same performer does the rest of this series. Terrible choice. Good series. My only complaint is that the narrator needs to learn to pronounce nautical terms before he narrates a nautical book. For example The forecastle is pronounced fok-sel. The coxswain is pronounced cox-in. Would you consider the audio edition of To Sail a Darkling Sea to be better than the print version?
I know Mr Ringo Slightly.. Met several times, Long Talks with groups of other people "Pool-side", etc That Ain't Ringo! We've crossed much of the same ground from Fort Bragg to Europe, the Caribbean, etc Needs a better ending, but maybe they could talk John into "Touching up the Series a bit" before turning it into an Audible Series Even Better, he uses his past experiences to make characters "Real".
Ringo somehow allows you to experience that even if you've never "Been there yourself". I spend a lot of time with the "Pause Icon" until I can make myself quit laughing and pay attention again. If I feel a book starting to make me uncomfortable, or begin bashing my own Sacred Cows I need to stop and reexamine why those cows are so sacred to me Ringo causes me to re-think a LOT of things at times.
I can't say enough about the Man, OR most of his Books. Already Pre-Ordered Book 4! What did you love best about To Sail a Darkling Sea? The character of Faith Smith Shewolf.
She was funny and capable, not that she was a comic, but that her uncensored remarks and reactions were the high point of the story. What was your reaction to the ending?
To Sail a Darkling Sea book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. BOOK II IN THE BLACK TIDE RISING SERIES FROM THE NEW. BOOK II IN THE BLACK TIDE RISING SERIES FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR. Sequel to Under a Graveyard Sky. A family of survivors.
No spoilers please! Good job with voices and pacing. I enjoyed the narration. Characters were brought in, like Rusty, then mostly ignored. There was no one main character. The story didn't feature a challenging obstacle, other than the overall hopelessness of a few people trying to save themselves and the world. That's less of a problem in the book than it would seem. Each challenge was taken in stride. There was no fighting to a climax. Success piled on success.
