Publisher's Summary

"There is a voice in my head, slithering through my mind like a serpent. It whispers dark things. Tells me to feed." (Osiris, Egyptian lord of the underworld.)

Were the Egyptian gods fanciful imaginings of primitive people or something more? Some believe they once walked the Earth as mortals, that they warred and loved just as any of their worshippers.

This is their story--the tale of how Isis gained the power of shaping. How mighty Osiris died and lived again. How they discovered the fabled First Ark, a structure older than man. It is the tale of us all, the story that shaped our race from cave dwellers into the people we are today.

Are these fanciful tales? Or long-lost truth wrapped in myth? Only time knows.

"It's like Clan of the Cave Bear ran right into The Walking Dead." (The author's totally biased friend.)

    "Good tie in the the main trilogy"

    Some of this was told in the 1st book however this a good tie end to help you better understand how things really happened and why they was so lost by the appearance of the 1st ark

    "I like the recreation of Egyptian mythology"

    I like the recreation of Egyptian mythology for the origins of Osiris, Isis and the rest and the discovery of the first Ark was pretty cool.  I know you would normally read a prequel first, I would actually recommend reading No Such Things as Werewolves first so that you don’t have spoilers and enjoy finding out what happens as it is happening (that could just be me though….I like it when I can’t figure out a book right away).  After listening to this I was glad that I did not read/listen before I started the first book.  The frustrating part of this is that it is a very small snapshot of the beginning, I wish it were a bit longer and maybe covered some details about what happened to cause the creation of the werewolves…..but I digress.    I have actually started the third book, Vampires Don’t Sparkle so maybe some of those questions will be answered…..hopefully they will be answered.

    This was a fun and interesting listen and as usual the narrator, Ryan Kennard Burke, did a fabulous job, the voices he gives the characters are very distinct and I had no problem knowing which character was speaking and I am glad that we have the same narrator through the series.

    So all in all, a fun but short listen that gives you a tiny glimpse of where and how it all started.

    Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.

    Please find this complete review and many others at my review blog

    Story
    "Wonderful short addition to Chris Foxs' first book"
    Where does The First Ark: Deathless Prequel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there, but not at the very top. It's a short add-on story


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the additional insight into the series


    Which character – as performed by Ryan Kennard Burke – was your favorite?

    I didn't really have one


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

    yes, and I did

    "Nice little back story"

    I enjoyed this book although it was way to short. I have read the 1st two books which I loved. If your like me and read the other books then this is just a little bite to hold you over until the author finishes the last book.

    Story
    "An interesting story which fits into our history"
    What did you love best about The First Ark: Deathless Prequel?

    This short story sets up the series and gives insight into what the world will find unthinkable


    What did you like best about this story?

    The use of our idea of past charactors whose names we are familiar with make it a good read


    What about Ryan Kennard Burke’s performance did you like?

    No doubt Mr Burke is a true professional who can give life and drama to each character he playx VERY good job


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

    I like the current name THE FIRST ARK


    Any additional comments?

    Look forward to reading the complete series

    you need to know this stuff if you are reading the series
    it makes more sense
    i actually think its best to read no such thing as werewolves first, then jump to this one
    it helps with book 2

    "Odd beginning, hoping to get clarification"

    Narrator, definitely had a strong voice, back story was a little odd & seemed hard to follow along. If this book had been maybe based on Greek Methlogy instead, i might of had a easier time following along with the story

    "Dont"

    Very short prequel, not worth the money. Part of the prequel is already a part of the first novel.
