I would say everyone should enjoy this story
He brings the story to life
There's only one thing to say about Tufo's books. They're all freaking awesome!
First of all, the narration is spot on and fits the character unbelievably well. Then there's the book. It is true to form for Mark Tuffo. Lycan Fallout is well-written and engaging. The dark humor does not stop and the laughs keep rolling out of my mouth even if I'm listening on headphones in public. What else could you ask for... Seriously? This book is exactly what I expected. As usual it is highly entertaining! I love the detail and nuances he puts into both the characters and the storyline. This author is recommended for everyone that has a sense of humor and is ready to be entertained!

Lycan Fallout: Rise of the Werewolf was everything I wanted from another Talbot adventure, action, mystery, comedy, blood, monsters, and of course pop tarts. I was a bit surprised, having not listened to all of the Zombie Fallout series, by the situation that Talbot has found himself in. Again Tufo creates a unique would that could only exist after the zombie apocalypse has been carried out, with sporadic groups of survivors all with different belief systems and mythology from the world that once was. At one point I thought where were going to be zombie werewolves, not sure how that would go down, but alas that branch of the story hasn't been traveled down yet.
I grew up with books....not television.
I was skeptical about introducing werewolves into the mix of vampires, zombies and witches - but it worked and kept me listening to the very end. It's strange to pick up after almost a century later AFTER the zombie fallout occurred but once you separated yourself from the Talbots and let this become your point of reference, it was a wonderfully engaging story. I would absolutely read the follow up book if one were to surface.
Mikes meets Purpose for the first time
The ending made me want to cry after so many books the loss of the character completely threw me off.
I love all of Mark Tufo's books but his Zombie Fallout series is the best in my humble opinion. I get depressed when I know the end of the latest book is coming and I will again have to wait for the next book to come out. This book helped tide me over for a bit waiting for ZF8. It is not the same by far and many of the characters are obviously not in it, but there are a few left and it was just enough to get you into this new stage in Mike Talbot's life. If you love the Zombie Fallout series, you should listen to this book...
Anyone who has not listened to the Zombie Fallout series.
With Mike now being immortal I felt very dis-attached to his character. He was no longer just a regular guy dealing with extraordinary circumstances. Also, the werewolves in this story lacked the personification that the zombies were given in the other series. No real connection to their human side before they became monsters.
Excellent as always.
I enjoyed the backstory on the Lycans.
I enjoy being able to listen to the book, Sean Runnette is a capable performer who does an amazing job with the characters.
That this book takes place in the future with some of the same characters and brings in new characters with links to the past
Sean's performance brings the action and characters to life
Mike's Travels continue
As usual Sean Runnette IS Michael Talbot. He perfectly portrays the whit, sarcasm and humor that I envision.
It drives me nuts that I cannot!
I was weary at first because this is to take place after the Zombie Fallout series which has yet to complete so I was worried how the two could develop parallel without spoilers appearing but I feel as though there are no great reveals in here. You are told the characters you loved are long since passed but that is to be expected. It is a bit heart wrenching knowing the chemistry that has been instilled in you for a whole series is over, but this book begins it's own saga.
Another great story from Mark Tufo. I loved getting to see Michael Talbot again in a different story line, although connected to Zombie Fallout. The book says you don't have to have read Zombie Fallout, which is true. But I recommend you finish that series first, as there are lots of references.
