Combines the two-part Keo storyline, The Walls of Lemuria and The Fields of Lemuria, into a single volume and does not contain new material.
Every survivor has a story.
The Purge decimated the planet almost a year ago, leaving small bands of humanity scrambling to find sanctuary from the hordes of unkillable monsters that reside in the darkness. Keo is one of the few who made it through that harrowing first night. Trapped in a small town in Louisiana, he finds himself joining forces with a group of strangers to make sense of what's happening. Like thousands of others around the globe at that exact moment, Keo and his new allies will discover that braving the creature-infested first night is only the beginning. Every day from that moment on will be a struggle, and every night will be a nightmare. This is their story.

Sam really fleshes out a character so that they become people you care about. You feel like you are with them in the fight to stay alive.
Keo has come to be a favorite character. Ex-mercenary but good guy, earns an important part in this post apocalyptic adventure. His skills, intelligence and humor are indispensable to the group's success. Why is he named Keo? Because (insert name here) was taken. ;-)
I received this Audible version for an honest review. I had already read the books and have loved the whole series. The Audible version was well read and a great way to spend time with my favorite series while I commute and work.
I bought this out of desperation for a good read. I was pleasantly surprised. I first got the tale of Babylon which had the first three books so I figure what the heck. It was good and I went through the series quick. Compared to Maberry's Rot and Ruin, different but the writing and narrator were definitely in competition.
Warning...when you get to this book, there are 2 versions. One has just this sorry but there is another out with both books for the credit. Walls of Lemuria and Field of Lemuria. Save a credit and get the double feature.
I may have a new author to add to my favs
This narrated version of San Sisavath's novel added tremendous depth to Keo, who is one of my favorite characters. He is an unlikely hero who repeatedly demonstrates the same honorable qualities that make Will and Danny, other primary characters in this series, heroic leads. The narrator did an outstanding job lending emotion and personality to Keo while staying true to gritty tone of the story. I love this author. I love this series. I love these characters. The audio version is just one more way to enjoy my favorite indulgence.
Sam Sisavath has managed to balance many nuances, resulting in a compelling, engaging story. There is romance, danger, adventure, drama and mystery. He doesn't cut his characters any slack when it comes to loss and struggle, but overall there is a theme of hope and redemption. Excellent world-building, compelling plot twists and fantastic characters. I think this series is comparable to The Walking Dead in that once you get attached to the characters, you'll keep coming back to see what happens next. So glad I can enjoy it on audio for those times I cannot sit down with the books.
This is my first audiobook by Ryan Burke. High points for his narration and representation of these characters and book.
Dead, not stupid.
Don't miss any of the books in this awesome series!
