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.

    "Great Start & A Hidden Gem!!"

    Great Start & A Hidden Gem!! I can't wait to see where this story goes!! I am glad I found this Gem!! most books are done over a hundred different ways just told a bit differently by each author! THIS HOWEVER WAS A UNIQUE STORY & I LOVED IT!! The Narrator Kevin did a good job bringing the story to life!!

    "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!!

    "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.

    "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.

    "Great Short Story"
    Any additional comments?

    The story grabs hold of you from the start and doesn't let go. This may be considered a short story but it doesn't feel like it. It is action packed from beginning to end.

    It's a story about humanity in the aftermath of an EMP attack that takes down the grid. Yes, it's a story that's been told before, but this story stands out for several reasons. It's well written, has great characters, is full of action, realistic situations and a believable story.

    Great lead character. Dick, aka Devil Dog a former Marine with PTSD who has a strong sense of wrong and right in a world gone crazy especially where women and children are concerned.

    Kevin Pierce did a fantastic job with the narration. He has the perfect voice for this story.

    I have some catching up to do. This is the first book by Boyd Craven III I have read, but not the last.

    "So Good"
    Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. He did another excellent job.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed listening to this book. I really liked the main character "Devil Dog". Even though he has been tough times and bears the scars both mentally and physically, he tries to do the right thing. I like the supporting characters and thought they added to the story. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
