Publisher's Summary

They said it could never happen - that the day would never come.

They were wrong.

Five years post-collapse, former Texas Ranger Lucas Shaw is surviving hardscrabble in a kill-or-be-killed wasteland. When an enigmatic young woman enters his life with a desperate plea, Lucas must face impossible odds and battle an adversary who will stop at nothing to destroy them. Lightning-paced and gritty, Blood Honor, the debut novel in The Day after Never trilogy, is a non-stop adrenaline rush set in a chillingly plausible dystopian future.

    "Better than Mad Max"
    What made the experience of listening to Blood Honor the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a great job with all the character's voices. It really made the story come alive.


    What other book might you compare Blood Honor to and why?

    I don't usually read post-apocalyptic fiction, but I've watched Mad Max, and I think The Day After Never - Blood Honor is better than that.


    What does John David Farrell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sounds great and gives my eyes a break!


    If you could rename Blood Honor, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't rename it.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read all of Russell Blake's books, and I think this is one of his best.

    "Decent read"

    The story is a little unusual so it was entertaining but followed the typical apocalypse story line. The narrator had a lot of interesting voices. The voice of Lucas was annoying and hard to understand at low volume. The voice was like Clint Eastwood in his old spaghetti Westerns without the coolness. Decent read but I am glad to be done with it.

    "didn't realize this was a series"

    I feel it's unfinished, which was the intent of the author. This trend towards series is getting annoying.

    "Entertaining Read"

    I have listened to both books in this series and I must say they are probably my favorite of all post apocalyptic novels I've read. It's almost like Clint Eastwood meets mad max. What's different about these stories is the fact that they are not heavy in the bible banging or the preaching to buy silver and gold. But they are heavy on action and story line. I loved that, as I have grown weary of the former. They read like a western but better. I love Lamore, so this was right up my alley. I would strongly urge those of you who love post A novels but are sick of the religious overtones to read it. Patterson bores me half to death. But I suffered through them because I never give up. Now, don't get me wrong, I am religious. I just don't need the nonstop chatter about JC. I crave action and man this is packed with it. The narrator is excellent and brings the story to life. Far far better than some others who have strange intonation and speaking habits. Great range of voices. Just excellent. I am disappointed that I have to wait for book three. But hopefully I will get to hear it soon. Great book to sit out side in a hammock witch a beer, chill, close your eyes and let the story unfold.

    "Great narration.....Good story"

    Well written and read....just curious...how big does the author think saddlebags are?
    The ones herein seem to be bottomless........otherwise great......except I question that in chapter 16 the author seems to make a basic liberal's mistake of claiming that there is an "interchangeability" between good guys and bad guys.....that evil exists in everyone and therefore there is no such thing as pure evil...........that is of course B.S........

    "Good survival story leaving you wanting more"

    I have listened to over 500+ audio books and I will say this story is in my top favorites. The only grip I have is that it's only 7 and half hours long, it leaves you wanting allot more. Is it worth the 7 hours? He'll yes it is. The stories protagonist isn't only surviving but helping a little girl and an apparent hotty which in my book is as good as any reason, he has a good backdrop story and really doesn't want to do it, but because he's a good guy does. It seems simple but it works. I don't give books under 10 to15 hrs a 5 star rating and I know allot of audio book lovers love longer stories like me, however like I said before it's worth it.

    Story
    "Ladies, skip this one,"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Misogynistic knuckleheads?


    Has Blood Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I enjoy the genre, but will not be following this particular series. Good thing this wasn't my first rodeo.


    What didn’t you like about John David Farrell’s performance?

    The performance was okay, though all the older guys tended to sound the same - like Gabby Hayes.


    Any additional comments?

    Ah, the new wild west. Where the men are courageous, steely-eyed and resourceful (that is, those few who are not sadistic psychopaths). And 50% of the women (one of only two adult female characters) are plucky, headstrong twits needing to be saved from the results of their own ill-considered actions. Good thing Sierra is a good kisser. The character of Ruby doesn't mitigate my impression that the author does not enjoy writing female characters. The horses and dog were nice....

    "BORING"

    Not action packed as advertised. Sing song narration is tedious. Waste if time. Much better post apocalyptic audiobooks on Audible. Don't waste your time. Timelines in story are unrealistic.
