The Last Hunter - Descent: Antarktos Saga, Book 1 | [Jeremy Robinson]

The Last Hunter - Descent: Antarktos Saga, Book 1

"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."

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."

    Story
    "My First Audio Book"
    Where does The Last Hunter - Descent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's the best, so far, but it's my only one. I really enjoyed it, so I'll be getting more!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really liked how R.C. Bray brought the characters to life.


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

    It had to be his voice for the Nephilim.


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

    If I could have listened to it in one sitting, I would have, but that's never going to be possible with my schedule.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read the book, and it's my favorite series, but instead of simply reading it again, I wanted to see this series from a new perspective. I thought R.C. Bray did a great job narrating the story, and exceeded my expectations!

    Any additional comments?

    RC Bray is an amazing narrator, who brings Sol and the other characters even more to life than I imagined possible. I was really impressed with the different voices he uses, and the extra effort he took to make them supernatural.

    Story
    "Better then expected and less"

    Okay I bought this thinking it would be great. Then I started it and was questioning my decision. The story is great and the first chapter or so seemed a positive if slow start. However once they got to Antarctica. The story initially sped up into rapid action, which was great, however that action became have a book of oh my god lets detail out every aspect of this "breaking" which was not necessary. The steps yes those were necessary but did we really need paragraphs/pages descriptions of the insides of what he was eating raw and sleeping on? this took up most of the book and really seemed like gross filler and not really any point to it. About 3 and half hours into the 6 ish hour book, it took a turn and you finally began to understand what the over all story was and where it would be ultimately going. At this point the story began to get interesting. Interesting enough that I am considering the second novel, though not right away, it will likely be in the I will try it when I am looking for something to listen too. I am a little afraid of wasting have the book on nothing again.

    Narration: This went back and forth. For the most part it was good, there were a few characters that I had to really question the choices made for them, and it grated me to listed to the narrator do them, but thankfully they were relatively small parts and I could ignore them.

    So
    Con: Slow start and lot of space that seemed like just filler.
    Pro: It sets up for a positive continuation if the author can stay way from the random nothingness of filler.

    "Enjoyed this book and the others after it"

    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

    Story
    "Brainwashing a young boy with harsh lessons"

    This is the story of a young boy who was the only person born on Antarctica and somehow became a part of the land. His family leaves Antarctica shortly after he's born but surprises him with a trip back. He had been fascinated with the continent and had always wanted to visit it. As soon as he steps off the plane he fells like he's home. He's able to leave the plane without a coat and not feel the cold.

    Shortly after they return the young boy is kidnapped and taken underground where there's another world. His "brainwashing" is harsh lessons and soon he forgets his previous life. Although he still retains some knowledge of before, he doesn't know why he knows certain things. You follow him as he learns from another hunter how to be the last hunter of Antarctica.

    The narrator brought the story to life and was a perfect fit for the book.

    "Worth a listen but not amazing for me."

    The story was a bit "young" for me. It seems like it's geared for kids rather than adults or young adults but over all it was creative and different. Let's just say that If it were in print I would have put it down.

    Story
    "Just tired of these "action" scenes"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Focus on the meat of the story


    What was most disappointing about Jeremy Robinson’s story?

    Overdoing the movie style Rocky scenes. (hero gets beaten to death and then miraculously gets up and beat the other guy)


    Any additional comments?

    I bought the series and have no interest inlistening to the others.

    Story
    "Just ok"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not. There are much better ones out there.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It seemed like the story couldn't quite choose an identity, and I constantly felt like I was missing something. Is it an Antarctic-themed mystery? A Journey to the Center of the Earth-type book? A Bible-themed tale of mysticism? It progressed through all of these stages with only a loose thread tying them all together.
    The protagonist was not relatable and seemed to find things utterly mysterious that made little sense. The nice black lady who was a friend of his parents was presented as being nearly as strange as the earthquakes surrounding his birth. Much attention was given to coincidences and destiny-type portents, but I felt like the hype they generated resulted in disappointment later in the story.


    What three words best describe R. C. Bray’s performance?

    He had a good range of skill.


    Was The Last Hunter - Descent worth the listening time?

    I had to force myself to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not interested enough to follow this series. It was a little too weird and hodgepodge, and the tone ranged from overly serious to what I can only describe as pre-teen. *Slight Spoiler Alert* A twerp kid goes to Antarctica, spends a long time fighting dinosaurs underground, and then ends up in a scenario related to the book of Genesis... Is that imaginative? Yes. It was not, however, well executed.
