    Planet by planet, galaxy by galaxy, the inhabited universe has fallen to the alien Xul. Now only one obstacle stands between them and total domination: the warriors of a resilient race the world-devourers nearly annihilated centuries ago.

    Story

    I read the reviews before getting this and I have to say I have loved this book. I was concerned by what was described as over use military jargon, and way to much detail. To that I have to say, this is a trilogy, and the author must build the story for it to expand into a three volume set. I will be reading the second book next.
    Great stuff.

    In the 10th year of the Change, the survivors in western Oregon have learned how to live in a world without technology. They have held the Lord Protector, Norman Arminger - the warlord of Portland - at bay. The tensions between these factions have been building for some time, and the only reason they haven't confronted one another on the battlefield is because Arminger's daughter has fallen into Clan Mackenzie's hands. But Lady Sandra has a plan to retrieve her, one that may spark open warfare.

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    I have listened to a few other book about post apocalyptic settings and this series is by far the best. It has a twist that changes every thing! Great story, great characters, great narration.

    Acclaimed author Michael J. Sullivan created instant best sellers with his spellbinding Riyria Revelations series. This first volume introduces Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater, two enterprising thieves who end up running for their lives when they’re framed for the death of the king. Trapped in a conspiracy bigger than they can imagine, their only hope is unraveling an ancient mystery - before it’s too late.

    Story

    I started this book, and after a two days (about two hours) I could not help but feel I had herd this story before. Going back through my old Audio books I did. This book was on Podiobooks, up to the end to book1. Then book two starts.

    Well any way this is a very cool adventure! I love the writing, and the narration. I can't wait to get started on the next book.

    The gigantic comet had slammed into Earth, forging earthquakes a thousand times too powerful to measure on the Richter scale, tidal waves thousands of feet high. Cities were turned into oceans; oceans turned into steam. It was the beginning of a new Ice Age and the end of civilization. But for the terrified men and women chance had saved, it was also the dawn of a new struggle for survival--a struggle more dangerous and challenging than any they had ever known....

    Story

    After finishing the book "Swan Song" (Fantastic book) I decided to listen to this book. I have been very pleased, and have enjoyed the fact that this was written in the 70s. As I was a kid in the 70s I was able to place my self there. Also I felt it followed the disaster movies of that time, ware there is a large build up of the story, and then the after math. The book brings a hole bunch of people to the reader, each with a story. I would recommend this to any one who likes the post apocalyptic time. I would also suggest you read this then read "Swan Song". I think it would have been easier for the people in the 70s to make it over the people in the 2010s.

    I was hooked from the first 10 minutes of this book. What a ride! This is the first book to ever give me nightmares. I do not mean spooky monster nightmares.
