Publisher's Summary

Dick, AKA Devil Dog's world changes drastically when the EMP takes out the power grid. The loss of electricity brings out the darker side of human nature across the city. A homeless Marine veteran living in the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago, he's far better prepared than most people. Good folk have survived, but they are often outnumbered and outgunned. Only the tunnels provide the safety he needs.

Devil Dog becomes the reluctant savior of women and children from the worst of the gangs that now rule topside. Doing the right thing makes him new enemies, driving him ever deeper into the tunnels that keep his charges safe - until he runs across a young woman who might be his daughter.

    "Compelling"
    Where does Devil Dog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil Dog?

    I dont recall a specific moment or moments. The story is rather unique in the post-apocalyptic genre. Kevin Pierce is a great choice in narrator for this story.


    What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good narrator is always the difference between a good and bad listening experience. In this example, Kevin Pierce was a good choice.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is overall really good. Most authors chose to use either a law enforcement or military background as their primary character. Many times that idea can be over played, but in this case, the author sets up the story differently. As the story continues in the subsequent continuations, its a very compelling story. This story has a very down to earth feel to it. I'm very happy with this story and I have enjoyed the continuations and look forward to the story continuing.

    "Action Suspense and the Apocalypse"

    This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks Audiobook Boom.

    I really enjoyed this story! Alas, it has no zombies, an EMP has brought the world as we know it to a sudden stop. It's how one man copes with his changed world. It well written and narrated and this book could definitely become a series. Bonus? The story gave great survival tips, what more could you ask for?

    Story
    "Just what I needed!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So often in PA books the hero is perfect at everything. That gets a little old after awhile. The "hero" in this book wasn't perfect, he was a flawed man doing the best he could under the circumstances. His flaw made him more real to me and you will find Devil Dog to be a guy that you are cheering for.

    My complaint is one I often make with books under 10 hours - it was too short! As a avid reader/listener I can fly through books like this - especially ones that I lose myself in. I was provided this book in exchange for a review. Mr. Craven if you see this, thanks for the listen, great book BUT please write longer ones so I can get a few more hours of enjoyment please!!

    "crazy"

    great story line and a good way to help bring a positive look on PTSD, we suffer but it is not always the way the crony media want to spin it.

    "More please!"

    I'm hoping Kevin Pierce will narrate the second book as well. He's a favorite narrator of mine, so I'm always happy to find a new series that he's read.

    Devil Dog begins with a homeless marine living underground with a bunch of homeless kids. It seems they may be better off than everyone else trying to survive the effects of an EMP taking out the power grid. The plot is short and simple, but very enjoyable with its unique story line. This is not your usual EMP survival story.

    Story
    "Kevin Pierce strike again."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Devil Dog to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of Devil Dog.


    What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

    Kevin Pierce’s performance was flawless as always.


    Who was the most memorable character of Devil Dog and why?

    The main character Dick A.K.A the Devil Dog. I found that some of the most emotional scenes of the book were the parts when he kept mistaking people for his wife and daughter.


    Any additional comments?
