HE SURVIVED THE SCOURGE. HE ESCAPED THE CARTEL. NOW HE FACES THE WALL.
In the chaos of a global plague, evil took hold. Governments fell, the good became servants, and the Cartel rose to power. A wall was built to contain the wasteland and keep the evil at bay. Now an organized resistance wants change. They're willing to fight for it and they've asked Marcus Battle to help. The last thing Battle wants is another war. But if that's what it takes to gain freedom and safe passage to the other side of the wall, he'll take aim and fire.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This book will make no sense at all unless Home and Canyon, the first novels in the series, are read first. Wall concludes the series. The Traveler is a well written and very well narrated dystopian series. The ending is not great but is as good as can be expected considering the nature of the crisis. Ultimately the story is about the difference on person, Marcus Battle, can make.
Finally an author who can write a three book series and not use one foul word to express the point if the book. Shows it is possible if your intelligent enough.

A battle is coming, well make that two battles. One actual battle between the two sides and Marcus Battle, the incredibly resilient good guy in the Traveler Series.
The narration for Wall was done by Kevin Pierce who has done the entire Traveler series and done an awesome job on them. As I've stated time and time again, Pierce just has one of those voices that really makes these post-apocalyptic stories. It's no wonder he's been featured over and over again on my blog considering that's one my favorite genres.
The story picks up where the other two have left off, so I may give some spoilers away. Battle is still alive and kicking and is now called upon to help more people once again. I really like the inner angst that Abrahams plays off of. Battle is a mess internally. He's fighting a lot of demons that would cause a lesser man to crumble. I think that it's written beautifully -- allowing Battle to have his moments, but also recover from them and grow because of them.
The combination of Abrahams writing style and Pierce's narration really made this book blow by. It felt like one moment I was just starting chapter 1 and the next the book was almost over. Not every book can do that, but this one definitely made the time evaporate.
Overall, the story was a little different from the first two Traveler books but was different in a needed way. This book had a lot of conclusions and endings to things. Without giving anything away, I will say that I was happy and a bit surprised by the ending.
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

It wa a great mini series. The characters were believable and the story was also. The only thing I sighed didn't like the ending. It ended abruptly.
Insatiable listener. I'm drawn to the dystopic and post-apocalyptic (including zombies) fiction, American and ancient history nonfiction.
It had a Western flavor. Very realistic characters. Narrator has an easy pace, though his voices aren't the most diverse.
Very good post apocalyptic trilogy. Good story with excellent narration. Hope there will be more to follow.
