Publisher's Summary

Dan and Drew continue their quest for survival in the chaotic new world. Having gained a little more knowledge and weaponry, the two strike out to prepare for the coming winter and secure their base of operations. In the process, they discover a few frightening things about the former occupants of their neighborhood and the surprising existence of another person who has faced the apocalypse with a startling indifference.

Communicating via the bulletin board system, Dan meets another survivor not far away who would make a valuable third addition to their little group. His knowledge of obscure things, and seeming preparedness, leads Dan to believe that he is needed. Deciding to scoop him up in an impromptu rescue mission, the two travel north. Along the way, they discover the desolation that has been left by not only the infection, but an ongoing conflict between a paramilitary group and the surviving US Armed Forces.

As the world continues to crumble around them, new challenges and shocking discoveries will test their strength and unity. Only by teaming up with their new ally, and making it safely back home, can Dan and Drew hope to survive.

    "Great second book!"

    Dan and Drew are back!! They are running out of supplies so have to go out and forage. During this time they see just how bad things are in the outside. They also get a shocking surprise from a neighbour.

    The duo that is Dan and Drew just have a way of crawling under your skin!! They are the unlikeliest heroes but one you can't help but love. Then they end up creating a trio instead of a duo, and I for one, am really looking forward to seeing how these 3 gel.

    This serial is so good. Its action packed and at times very witty. It's the type of book where you sit down to read a bit but when you look up an hour is gone by!! I love diving back into the world the author has created and so look forward to more.

    Clifford Edwards did an amazing job with the voices he used. He has quite a selection of them!! So why 4 stars instead of 5, well it's the production quality. The overall sound was very echoey and quite distracting. It was the same in book 1, which is a shame because these books and narrator are really good! Let's hope the sound quality gets better. :)

    *I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*

    "Another great epidsode!!"

    Episode 2 to Wormwood Dawn was excellent and kept me just as engrossed as Episode 1. I highly recommend this series. The time flew by when I was listening to this book. My sole complaint is again the length. It seems as if I just start listening to it and it is over. The narrator is doing a great job, despite the tinniness in the audio, as I stated in my earlier review, the book is just that good that I quickly forget about it. Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book for a honest review, and if you look at my reviews, I am brutally honest. Jake is a new character and his voice seems a bit Mike Tysonish (don't believe thats a word, but I am sticking with it!) as he is a huge strapping guy with a voice that doesn't match in my mind.

    I am glad I stumbled upon Edward Crae. I am anxiously awaiting another installment and as much as I love Audible books, I have already went to Amazon and put the next installment in my shopping cart. Happy Reading!

    "Awesome!"

    I have very much enjoyed this series thus far. It's a unique spin on the Apocalypse story-line. Keep them coming!

    "action packed from very beginning"

    it's better to start off with book one, this way u get to know the main characters Dan and Drew. this book starts were the last left. I really enjoyed the narration. C. Edwards really gets into it.

    "Recommend, Entertaining"

    I love this post-apocalyptic series, not the usual take on it. The characters Drew and Dan are great, they are humorous and crazy, very fun listen. But still too short, wanted it to continue. Can’t wait until the next. Wish the series was in one long listen book.

    "Two men against an ever-changing world"

    Dan and Drew, the unlikely duo, are out trying to survive. They are comfortable, but they are running out of food and booze, so they decide to go out on some supply runs. Things aren't looking good when they hear gunshots near the house. Wormwood Dawn: Episode Two will have you along for the ride while these two try and rescue neighbors and new friends alike.

    Narration for this (and the rest of the Wormwood Dawn series) was done by Clifford Edwards. Clifford has the perfect voice for this. He voices the perfect deep, dark, and definitely libertarian voices. It's just so incredibly fitting for these books. Once again the awesome effects were present in this audiobook, news reports sound like they're on a TV. He voices the crazy old woman that the men go "rescue" in a funny female rendition. The sound quality is still lacking a little bit here, but I've been told that Episode III is going to be much better. The quality takes nothing away from the narration of this story at all.

    Wow, well this story has some teeth. If the first episode was a marathon, this story is a sprint. There is no "getting to know" in this, from sentence one this story is full of action. Dan and Drew are really fun to listen to and follow in this story. They are no like anyone that I know, and I still feel like I know the duo really well. I chalk that up to the incredible writing that Crae does for these books. Every page, every second has me glued to my seat wondering what on earth could happen next. This episode is a top-speed dragster run from 0-120 in less than 5 seconds. Just pure craziness going on in this book. And I loved every second of it.

    I know that there are at least a few more in this episodic series, but, hearing how well Edwards narrates them, I've been spoiled. Even though I want to know what happens to these guys, I need to hear it. The combination of Crae's fast-paced writing and Edwards' quick tongue has me chomping at the bits for the next book to be released.

    "A Heart-Pounding, Pulse Raising Horror Serial"

    This audiobook is a Heart pounding, Pulse raising, Nail biting, goosebump inducing story of monsters and mayhem with a apocalyptic setting.

    I had completely forgotten how much I LOVED the first book in the Wormwood Dawn audiobook serial until I started listening to Book Two.

    A few minutes into this audiobook and I was hooked once again. This is NOT a zombie fiction book. This book is Science Fiction/Horror and it is AWESOME. Now I want to kick myself for not listening to this book as soon as I downloaded it. I WILL NOT make that mistake with this series ever again.

    Dan and Drew are two regular guys. Well, I guess they are definitely slackers, but they are loveable slackers. In the first book we find out that Dan is an alcoholic and Drew likes his marijuana a bit too much.

    But neither of their addictions seem to matter when people around them start turning into rabid psychos.

    The two friends hole up at Dan's house. But, when their cat ends up encased in a cocoon and then emerges as a horrific mutation, the two friends know that something very strange is going on and that the world has changed - and that change is NOT good.

    In Book Two, Dan and Drew have gained both knowledge and weapons. They know that they will need to prepare for winter which is fast-approaching.

    As they check out the other homes in the area, they make a few discoveries.

    They are no longer alone...

    I LOVED THIS AUDIOBOOK.

    The first book in the series had a plethora of production quality issues. Those glitches have been reduced in Book Two and are no longer a factor. This is wonderful since it made the listening experience even better than I expected.

    Dan and Drew are not the type of people that you would normally equate with the title of "hero." But that is exactly what makes them so compelling.

    The action never stops in this audiobook and narrator, Clifford Edwards is an absolute pleasure to listen to. It is almost unbelievable that only one person narrates this book because Cliff is just that good. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks over the years and I cannot remember any other narrator who was able to voice so many different characters with so much variation and still be able to keep the overall story flowing with apparent ease. The narrator deserves 5 Stars all his own.

    I have seen some reviews of this audiobook that mention the "echo-y" sound in parts of the story. I thought the use of this "echo-y" technique was perfect. It is used when Dan and Drew are watching and listening to online news reports and it adds authenticity to the story.

    The action begins right away and like a car whose gas pedal is stuck, the action is unending. I LOVED IT!

    This horror audiobook serial is an absolute MUST LISTEN for all horror fans.

    Thankfully I already have Book Three because I don't just want to listen to it, I NEED TO listen to it right away.

    I rate WORMWOOD DAWN: Episode Two as 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and it has earned every single star.

    * I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "adrenaline-fueled nightmare"

    This story builds on the tension and horror of the first episode but it is faster-paced, scarier and leaves you breathless and begging for more. the writing is slick and compelling, hurrying the story on at a fast clip. Edward Crae has a real talent for this genre. The narrator, Clifford Edwards, once again does a superb job, slipping smoothly in and out of the different characters effortlessly. I cannot wait for the next book in this series

    "Great second episode!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wormwood Dawn, Episode II to be better than the print version?

    I haven't personally read the book, but the narration always adds another dimension to a story. Because they put so much into the acting. There is a lot of work gone into this and it's obvious. :)


    What other book might you compare Wormwood Dawn, Episode II to and why?

    I'm not a huge zombie reader, so can't really compare, I do however like the Dawn of the Dead movies, and Shaun of the Dead, which is the more comedic version. I defo love the comedy side of this, and the eery side. It's not quite zombies, but mutations as well, so it adds that extra layer, which is horrid and gruesome, but fascinating as well.


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

    The humour, Dan's inner dialogue can be so brilliant. Like you're thinking it, but Clifford delivers perfectly.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm not so sure 'moved' is the right term, but there are plenty of 'egggh' and 'yuk' moments, described very well and given just the right tone in delivery that you really do feel utter sick by the gruesome monsters in this story.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope, reserving it for the third :)
