Publisher's Summary

The Shepherd: A Society Lost is an action-packed post-apocalyptic thrill ride detailing the struggles of former sheriff Jessie Townsend as he and his family seek shelter from a crumbling world with a self-sufficient life on a homestead deep in the Rocky Mountains. Sanctuary soon becomes what he meant to escape, peaceful bliss slipping into desperation and despair in the aftermath of events that shook the foundations that shaped our world to the core. An unholy alliance of conspirators had sought the collapse of our civilization in order to rebuild and reclaim it as their own. Never truly intending to coexist, the unlikely allies found their courses diverging, leading to a struggle that dealt the final death blows to our society. In the absence of the order and structure of our modern civilization, evil, suffering, and chaos were unleashed throughout the world. As the post-collapse struggles of the outside world begin to threaten Jessie's mountain hideaway, a return to the world he left behind becomes a chance for redemption and survival in a society lost.

    "Don't give into the bad reviews."

    I enjoyed this story very much. It had a bit of a slow start, but I think the information the listener gets is important to the rest of the story and the main characters mindset. The only thing that I didn't like was the narrator she-male voice for women. But what can you do? I guess I'm glad he wasn't too good at sounding like a woman...

    "OK, but that's all"

    "Fizzles fast"

    The story sounded like it would be great. It started out interesting but fizzled quickly. The narrator kinda sounded like a used car salesmen and then morphed into a used car salesman with split personalities. It was very distracting.

    "Apocalyptic Audio Success!"

    "bad narration"

    I listen to a lot of downloadable books. this is probably the worst book I have listened to. It was boring. the narration was probably about as monotone as you could get reading a book out loud. I have listened to other books by mr. bird and enjoyed them greatly.

    "This guy is an idiot! !"

    This book reminds me of one of those scary movies that leaves you shouting at the screen, saying "no stop don't do it go back" . Everything that you think is a bad idea, this main character does. The narrator drove me crazy the way he talked as well. needless to say I did not enjoy this book.

    "Can't wait for the next book!"

    This is a great, realistic post-collapse novel. Not some special forces guy, but a man with the skills to survive. I can't wait to hear the next book! I hope the author writes fast!
