Publisher's Summary

In the blink of an eye, the world changed.

Danger lurks around every corner.

Captain Jake Phillips wakes in his crash-landed craft and finds Earth transformed into a frightening new world. He faces two immediate threats that will test his survival skills to the limit.

Mutated beings prowl the landscape, hunting humans and searching for the remaining resources. Without a plan in place, the battle will be lost, and humanity as Jake knows it will be destroyed.

Sixth Cycle is a gritty postapocalyptic story of survival and adventure.

    Story
    "A story of could have been so much..."

    I tend to listen to anything one Mr R.C Bray narrates as he has the great ability to turn a story I don't naturally gel with into something which is acceptable. That is not to say that there is something below par with this title!

    However, I finished listening to this one and felt it could have been so much better! This could easily have been the surprise title of the year for me and I do listen to a lot of titles! It has an element or feel of 'Planet of the Apes' to it. In the sense of 'what has man done?' While at the same time a cowboy and Indian feel with a Wild West theme. It has a mutant, although to tell you the truth I was hoping for a zombie theme.... But don't tell anyone that :-)

    But then when I sit down and think about it some more, it could have also been so much worse with those different types of elements contained within. I get the feeling this title could have been so much longer with so much more character development from all of the different parties. I thought it felt like a story made for a movie straight out of the box.

    The narration was good, usual R.C. Bray standard. Speed was increased to just 1.25x so no significant impact to your $ per hour calculations.

    This one will keep your commute to work from becoming to stressful or boring, but as it stands it is not an outstanding title when it had the chance to be outstanding.

    All in all just one out of two thumbs up from this fat man!

    Story
    "A perfect book with something missing."

    It is always a pleasure when a dystopian book feels like it could be real. Sixth Cycle is a well written and beautifully performed (audiobook) adventure. Action, mystery, politics and even some humor round out the story.The curry fart joke is brilliant, trust me you will love it.

    The best part of this story is what is missing:
    I kept waiting for two of the main characters (leaving names out for spoilers) to engage in a romantic relationship. I was so happy when the book ended and that cheap trope was not present.

    I look forward to more books from this author collaboration.

    Would you listen to Sixth Cycle again? Why?

    I would listen again because the story was excellent. I wanted to hear more. I could see it in my head like it was a movie. It wasn't over complicated or wordy. There was a good balance of action and character development. I listened to it without getting bored and going to another book. The narrator does good male and female voices that all sound unique. For a person that gets bored easily, it had my attention from start to finish. It kind of reminded my of Fallout 3 ...lol.... Maybe that's why I liked it so much.

    Story
    "I can't wait for the movie!"
    What did you love best about Sixth Cycle?

    It felt cinematic! There was a big, dashing astronaut hero and a tortured soul of a young orphaned heroine, banding together to save society.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sixth Cycle?

    Exploring the 'ancient' Earth bunkers and technology with the astronaut from that era


    What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?

    Great voices and pacing. One of the best!


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

    Skye finding the old friends of her long dead parents


    Any additional comments?

    Great book and great narration. That's enough, right? ;)

    Story
    "Misleading description."

    The publishers description of this book needs some work. As in, throw it away and rewrite it.
    There is a nuclear war on earth. We have bombers in space that wait for their green light to drop their payloads. One does crash and our main character is left inside, in stasis. When he wakes up there isnt a ton of "survival" to do. There are no mutant beings, just the regular folks surviving and then the outcasts that have been living to close to radiation zones. Those irradiated people are nuts, lack intelligence, and are extremely violent. For me, the main characters back story and "survival" aspect of the book, was more or less useless, and just thrown in there so you can have a man with access to bad ass weapons.
    The book was just OK.

    What did you like most about Sixth Cycle?

    The story is interesting and engaging. The narration did not do it for me, but still listenable.


    Any additional comments?

    Could possibly be turned into a mini series.

    Story
    "Lacking depth"

    I quite enjoyed the concept behind this - but it is let down, in my opinion, by shallow characters - and unlikely dialogue. I also found some parts unfeasible (aside from suspending disbelief for the obvious - i.e. the story). When I listen to e.g. Joe Abercrombie - I never doubt what characters do and say. In this book, I did, repeatedly.

    "Well made audio book of a great story"

    I loved this book when I read it, so when I had a chance to own it on audio I snapped it up. The narrator does a great job of retelling this cracking sci-fi tale.

    Highly recommended
