Publisher's Summary

Separated, but not out of the fight. Gaby has been captured by a familiar figure from her past. Some might take captivity lying down, but they aren't Gaby. Will and Danny are close on Gaby's trail, but their rescue mission is detoured in a city under siege by a very dangerous new breed of ghouls. The reunited ex-Army Rangers will face their toughest fight yet if they want to get out alive.

Back on Song Island, Lara prepares for an impending attack. She receives unexpected assistance from a man named Keo, an ex-mercenary with his own agenda. Meanwhile, the survivors' radio broadcast has elicited surprising responses from around the globe. It might be the start of a resistance against the ghoul domination, if Lara can keep everyone alive long enough. Where the purge begins, the gates hold, and the stones crumble, the fires will burn.

    "To book 5"

    This series is awesome. I just bought book 5! And the plot thickens. I can't want to see what happens next.

    "Another great story from Sam Sisavath"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fires of Atlantis to be better than the print version?

    I am a diehard fan of Sam Sisavath and have re-read this series several times. Listening to the audiobook version allows me to enjoy the story in a different way than reading. The characters seem more real and I often discover different nuances in the story than when reading. This is a well written story that is well narrated.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite characters are Keo, Will and Lara.

    "really great book"

    great book the only complaint is you have to get used to the narrator. he kind of reads fast and doesnt change his voice all the time for characters but once you get used to him its not to bad. well worth the credit if you like apocalyptic books.

    "One of the Best Books in the Series."
    Where does The Fires of Atlantis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to a little over 60 audiobooks in the past five years. This one belongs somewhere in the top 10.


    What other book might you compare The Fires of Atlantis to and why?

    This series is the "Z-Burbia" series by Jake Bible meets "Until the End of the World" (series by Sarah Lyons Fleming) meets the "Walking in the Rain" series by William Allen. It has the biting, witty humor and dialogue of the first-mentioned series, the engaging characters and survivalist bent of the 2nd series, and the granular gun-details (required to make these sorts of books with these sorts of characters credible) and requisite seriousness/stakes of the latter.


    Have you listened to any of Adam Danoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to The Purge of Babylon, Gates of Byzantium, and The Stones of Angkor (the three books prior to this one in the main series), all of which utilized Adam Danoff as narrator. The finest compliment I can pay to Danoff is that Keo, the major protagonist to the two-book side series (Lemuria) was introduced in this novel as a new character. Ryan Burke has a very distinct narrative voice and told those side-stories in a way that very much made him "Keo" for listeners. Adam was able to integrate the character into the novel in a way that both (1) made it his own while (2) not being jarring to the reader with the narrative switch. I have listened to audio book series like "One Year Later/After" (by William Forstchen) where this narrator switch didn't work, so when it works really well like here it is definitely noticed and appreciated. Alsof note, Will, Danny, Keo, Blaine, and (to a lesser extent) Laura and Abby all have their own unique voices, which make multiple POV stories like this extremely enjoyable to listen to. Not every narrator can do this.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't know that I'm that clever... but to borrow the author's phrase:

    "They May be Dead, But They're Not Stupid."


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 4th (or 6th, if you count the side novels) book in what will ultimately be an 8/10 book series. I recommend starting from the beginning before reading this one, but absolutely every one of them is worth it. I started listening to this series 8-ish months ago every night before bed and have shown up to work exhausted the next day several times since because I literally couldn't stop even as night ended and the sun rose. To have a series with this sort of staying power, an author has to have (1) engaging characters that the reader cares about, (2) a compelling plot that causes said characters to grow, and (3) antagonists that the reader really wants to see get their come-uppance. "The Purge" series has all of these things. And it just keeps getting better.

    Also of note, the narrative quirks that at times weakened the earlier books - namely (1) overuse of character specific catch-phrases, (2) too many plot device characters introduced solely as a means to advance the story before being killed off, and (3) every character being described as attractive/beautiful/handsome several times a book with each being better looking than the last (Carly, Laura, Gabby, Bonnie, Kate, Jillian, Will, Donny, Claire +a dozen others I am looking at you... do only good looking people survive the end of the world?) have also gradually faded away as the series has gone on. As Sam has improved as a writer (he started good and keeps getting better and better) in the process listeners/readers have gotten a steadily more engaging narrative.

    Frankly, this is the best thing I'm listening to right now. And I listen to my fair share of audiobooks. I can't wait for book 5/7.
