Publisher's Summary

"I've been told that the entire continent of Antarctica groaned at the moment of my birth. The howl tore across glaciers, over mountains and deep into the ice. Everyone says so. Except for my father; all he heard was Mother's sobs. Not of pain, but of joy, so he says. Other than that, the only verifiable fact about the day I was born is that an iceberg the size of Los Angeles broke free from the ice shelf a few miles off the coast. Again, some would have me believe the fracture took place as I entered the world. But all that really matters, according to my parents, is that I, Solomon Ull Vincent, the first child born on Antarctica - the first and only Antarctican - was born on September 2nd, 1974.

"If only someone could have warned me that, upon my return to the continent of my birth thirteen years later, I would be kidnapped, subjected to tortures beyond comprehension and forced to fight... and kill. If only someone had hinted that I'd wind up struggling to survive in a subterranean world full of ancient warriors, strange creatures and supernatural powers.

"Had I been warned I might have lived a normal life. The human race might have remained safe. And the fate of the world might not rest on my shoulders. Had I been warned....

"This is my story - the tale of Solomon Ull Vincent - The Last Hunter."

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    "Ready to sit on the edge of your chair???"

    I got lucky when I decided to listen to the sample for "The Last Hunter Decent". Before this book I had never heard of Jeremy Robinson or R.C. Bray. Now, I am a 24 karat supporter of both. The story starts slowly, but like all great adventures, it continues to build in stature from innocence to full adventure mode. I loved everly minute of it and look forward to followup books.

    Story
    "Exceptional Story...Masterful Narration..."
    What did you love best about The Last Hunter - Descent?

    That's a tough one. I can't honestly think of anything I didn't like. The characters were rich and textured. Even the villains were likable. Charismatic. Intriguing. The story had elements of the Noble Savage in reverse, as well as Peter Pan, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and Survivor Man. It was light-hearted, yet there were elements that were disturbing in regards to Solomon's "descent" into savagery. I feared for the boy's soul...which says alot when considering how many physical dangers that threatened him. This shows expert craftsmanship on the part of the author.

    But there was more to this audiobook than a great story. I have to say that R.C. Bray, the narrator, stole the show in this one. He was absolutely amazing. His voices captivated me. It sounds cliche', but it honestly seemed like a movie was playing in my head while he narrated and that different actors were playing individual parts. It was difficult to distinguish Bray's voice from that of the characters he portrayed, which, in my opinion, is the key to masterful narration.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Hunter - Descent?

    Honestly, the most memorable for me was watching this sweet, innocent boy slowly, gradually be turned into a hardened, savage hunter. There were scenes in which Solomon, er, I mean Ull, scared me in regards for the boy's soul. No child should ever be so hardened as he. And this exploration of the savagery that a child can unleash fascinated me.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to Bray's narration, but definitely won't be the last. I think he's going to go places. A fantastic actor and storyteller.


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

    From the first few minutes, I wished I had time enough to just sit and listen straight through.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to listen to the next one. Already purchased and will be downloading as soon as I finish this.

    Any additional comments?

    Overall : C
    What a strange book. I’m not sure why I selected this. I jumped in due to RC Bray as the narrator. This is a story about a teen who has a connection to the continent of Antarctica and is sucked into the underworld of monsters, dinosaurs, and giants.

    The writing is good. RC Bray is fantastic. But, I just don’t like the story very much. I don’t see a good vs evil theme. Just a survival story of a kid forced down a path he doesn’t want to go. I have no desire to continue this series.

    "A fantastic story"

    Excellent writing, really captures the readers attention and imagination. Solomon is a strong character who you feel for and want him to succeed. I am looking forward to the next one. I think this series is probably one of the most character driven series Robinson has written. R.C.Bray did such an amazing job with the narration, if I hadn't known from the start that he was narrating I wouldn't have believed it, it is that good.

    Story
    "The beginning of a must listen series"
    If you could sum up The Last Hunter - Descent in three words, what would they be?

    Must listen


    What did you like best about this story?

    Character development was excellent


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

    Solomon


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

    The breaking


    Any additional comments?

    I was looking for a quick sci-fi book to listen to and stumbled across this book. After I finished this one I got the remainder of the books in the series and listened to them all the way through. I have it playing in the background while I am working and it makes the day go by much faster although I have to admit it may have reduced my productivity at times.

    This is a great book that is a new type of adventure for me. There is a lot of action and it does not get boring, thus hard to turn off. It was so worth getting

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    Story
    "It is YA - boy becomes Super - and that's it"

    I didn't realize it was a YA novel until a little ways in - I had thought it was odd the main character was a teenage boy, and figured the time would fast-forward to current day (it starts in the late 80s) after the first chapter or two, but... nope... it is fully YA.

    The plot? A 14 year old becomes a super-hero-magical-being.
    The story? He is tested, tortured, escapes, heals, gets injured, heals, kills monsters, gets injured, heals, then joins the ranks of the super-magical-power-beings.

    I occasionally like YA books, but... they really do need to have more story than boy become super, kills dinosaurs/monsters, becomes more super, then story just ends and you have to buy book 2.

    The narration, however, is excellent. As might be expected in a YA novel, there is nothing graphic.

    If you are a teenaged reader, this book is probably pretty decent "action adventure" as long as you don't need there to be some point other than the one character "finding his true self". I am old and tainted and need more story, more plot, more "meaning" than is here...
