PRIMAL Origin: The PRIMAL Series, Book 1 | [Jack Silkstone]

PRIMAL Origin: The PRIMAL Series, Book 1

Your mission is to build an organization capable of dealing with men…Men who think they are above the law. Men who sow hatred and pain wherever they walk. Men who are evil.” That’s the call to arms for Vance, Ice, Mitch, and Bishop, a team of highly trained operatives who’ve gone rogue and formed PRIMAL, a global vigilante unit. They protect the innocent, punish the guilty, and wage war against terrorism, all in the name of justice. Their first target: the wealthy CEO of a powerful corporation—and a die-hard jihadist supporter—scheming to exterminate Western influence in the United Arab Emirates. Our four warriors challenge his murderous ambitions, turning the dark arts of clandestine ops against a seemingly untouchable evil. Success gives them access to new resources and new targets, and within a matter of days they’ve brought a Russian mafia cartel to its knees.

Publisher's Summary

"Your mission is to build an organization capable of dealing with men…Men who think they are above the law. Men who sow hatred and pain wherever they walk. Men who are evil."

That's the call to arms for Vance, Ice, Mitch, and Bishop, a team of highly trained operatives who've gone rogue and formed PRIMAL, a global vigilante unit. They protect the innocent, punish the guilty, and wage war against terrorism, all in the name of justice. Their first target: the wealthy CEO of a powerful corporation—and a die-hard jihadist supporter—scheming to exterminate Western influence in the United Arab Emirates. Our four warriors challenge his murderous ambitions, turning the dark arts of clandestine ops against a seemingly untouchable evil. Success gives them access to new resources and new targets, and within a matter of days they've brought a Russian mafia cartel to its knees.

Middle Eastern warmongers, insipid Russian mobsters, and all those who prey on the weak and helpless can rest assured: justice comes with a dose of fury when it's delivered by PRIMAL.

    "Excellent Debut novella"
    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill is PERFECT for this book. He brings his experience from Child, Deutermann, Griffen and others. His many voices and accents add depth to the characters you would not get from reading.


    Any additional comments?

    This is an Excellent debut novella. Fast paced, clearly written and easy to follow story line. Character origins are defined and are believable. I am looking forward to another exciting new series.

    "would recommend it to anyone that enjoys military"

    ABR's full Primal: Origin audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

    The CIA are working undercover to prevent terror attacks when they find out that they are the next target, rather than pack up and go home, two members of the team decide to find out what is going on and put an end to the attacks. Through this they are approached to set up a team that would fly under the radar, no government controlling them, all they have to do is rid the world of the ’bad guys’ with an unlimited budget, that was an offer they couldn’t refuse. We join Vance & Ice as they set up their ‘PRIMAL’ team and embark on their first mission. I liked the characters, I thought they were written really well and that the author did a fantastic job of setting the scene in his descriptions, it is fast-paced and kept my attention throughout. Overall I think the origin did its job, it has whet my appetite enough to make me want to read more of the series.

    I have only ever listened to one audio book by Dick Hill, so I don’t really have much to compare it to, I thought he did a good job with it, the narration was clear and entertaining, I could follow which character was which with no difficulty at all and I even had a few laugh out loud moments, which was more due to Dick Hill’s narration than the writing. It is not a long audio book, easily listened to in a day. I found that I enjoyed the narration more on the second listen than I did originally, whether that was because it took a while to get used to the narration or because I gave it more attention, I’m not sure. Overall I enjoyed the audio book and would recommend it to anyone that enjoys military thrillers.

    Story
    "Very bad narration."
    Would you try another book from Jack Silkstone and/or Dick Hill?

    The reader made the book seem so disconnected and silly that I would not attempt another purchase from this author.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jack Silkstone again?

    Possibly


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    No way!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from PRIMAL Origin?

    Never got to that point and could not get past the bad narration.

    Story
    "To Much stop and go,"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The storyline was good and the action was enough to keep the read/listener entertained throughout. But what I had to knock off stars for the choppy narration. I am not clear as to why the narration was so choppy whether it was part of the direction or the pattern of the narrators voice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I felt the narration was choppy and a whole lot of stop and go "Sly" type of voicing. I think a smoother performance and presentation would have made for a more enjoyable listen and in fact I will be getting the next book in print because I don't think I could listen to another book by this narrator and I really liked the concept of good mercs going after bad people.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, I enjoyed the concept of good people taking the fight to the bad. I think I will read the rest of the books in the series. I felt the characters were a little weak in this book but they were developed enough for me to want to find out more about what happens with Primal in the future.

    "Decent Story, Bad Narration"
    Would you try another book from Jack Silkstone and/or Dick Hill?

    I would have bought the rest of the series, but when I saw they had the same narrator I decided against it. His primary character voice has a decent tone, but his different character voices are terribly annoying and his reading style is choppy and often slurred. One review described the narrator as sounding drunk, and I would concur with that. He also has frequent awkward pauses in the middle of sentences which makes listening to the book rather annoying. Change the narrator and I'll buy the rest of the series

    "Story okay but did not care for the performance"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    No, I don't think I will. I felt his character voices where not good. Every character seemed to be the same...a drunk poor English man. Even the American Marine had an English accent.
