Publisher's Summary

In the fall of 2012, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, embarked on a series of high-energy experiments. No one knows exactly what went wrong, but in the blink of an eye, thousands of possible universes all condensed into a single reality....

Between a desert and a dried up sea lies the town of Watering Hole, the only oasis for miles and the home of our intrepid heroes Shaani and Xoota. After some rather harrowing adventures in the desert, they are followed home by a swarm of empathic earwigs. As if a psychic bug infestation weren't enough, the town's water supply has suddenly died up. Where there was once fresh water to spare, there is only a trickle of brackish sludge. Theorizing that the water came from a source beyond the desert, Shaani proposes an expedition to re-establish the town's water supply. Xoota, of course, is voted to go with her. Crossing the desert has never been done - and with water in short supply, the task seems impossible. But the ever-helpful Shanni appeals to the town patron Benek, and his love of cryogenically frozen brides, to back the project. What follows is the adventure of a thousand lifetimes.

    I love a good story and excellent plot. Put them in a magical place or far off world; even better. Books are the gateway to another world

    Story
    "Rats and rodents where the rubber hits the road."
    If you could sum up Red Sails in the Fallout in three words, what would they be?

    Inventive, imaginative,fun.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Sails in the Fallout?

    When, tongue in cheek, the main character's name the intelligent plant, Russel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the land shark gets attacked by the razorback pigs. The troupe losses it's water in the attack. Stranded in the desert with water gone the group gets blown off course only to end up in more danger when they crash their land sail into an oasis.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I found coming bask to it after a few hours a good stint in the post apocalyptic world.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a romp with gamma irradiated rodents that have lots of character. It shows just how animalistic humans can be and how human evolved rodents, bugs and plants can be.
    Wigwig is a real treat!

    Worth the read.

    Story
    "A Perfect Picture of D&D Gamma World"

    I've followed Gamma World's 7 "mutations" from the 80's to now. This is the first time sitting back and enjoying a perfect depiction of the game without actually Game Mastering. This version of GW, featuring, the Big Mistake, is my favorite. The author did an amazing job conveying aspects of the game and that setting (the monsters, the Alpha Mutations and Omega Tech, etc.). The pacing, the scene descriptions... On Point! The narrator put a cinema in my mind's eye. The perfect mixture of absurd humor, wonderment, and thrilling scenes. My sincere thanks to all involved.

    "I want more!"
    What did you love best about Red Sails in the Fallout?

    The characters where awesome! I really wish there where more books in this series!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Xoota and Shaani have this great chemistry between them. Wigwig is the most adorable insect swarm ever! And you'll just love to hate Benek. ><


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

    Her reading is stunning! Good character voices! You'll hang on her every word! I just love her performance of Xoota!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but thankfully its to long for just one sitting! I have listened to it twice now and I am looking forwarded to listening to it agin! Tho I do wish there was more books in this series… Especially with Xoota and Shaani in them!


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait for my next credit! So I can listen to some of the books written by Paul Kidd and narrated by Amanda Carlin! This book was an amazing gem to fined and I am existed to get to lessen to more from the talented people that made this such a fun experience!

    Thanks for writing and reading for us!

    Your new fan!

    ^^
