Another excellent installment in the ongoing Zombie Armageddon. Often times the sequel to any book (or movie) isn't able to hold up to the expectatio..Show More »ns of the original. Beyond Exile is certainly one of the few exceptions, with J.L. taking us on a new and equally intense journey.
If you are into the Zombie/Post Apocalyptic experience and/or you enjoyed Day by Day Armageddon, Beyond Exile is a must read.
First impression is that what I had feared has happened, the journal style of the story was completely removed. The main character that has remained n..Show More »ameless through 2 books now has a name, Killjoy. The entire feeling of the series has changed and I am not sure if I like it or not. Yea okay I was totally disappointed with this book. However it was a solid story by itself, not compared to the rest of the story. If you are in need of a one off zombie story fix Shattered Hourglass: Day by Day Armageddon, Book 3 would be perfect for you. If you are looking to be engrossed in a somewhat vague journal entries of an unnamed military man trying to eek out his existence, I think you will be disappointed.
Listening to Jay Snyder is like being serenaded by an old friend that has a way will telling stories. It’s kind of funny because every time I listen to an Audible Frontiers book, Snyder often does the intro regardless of who the actual narrator is, I get giddy inside and think to myself “Did I misread who the narrator was?”, then the real narrator takes over and I breath a sigh of disappointment. Not today folks! Snyder has a a very dynamic range of voices, useful for whatever type of character might cross his lips, combined with his foresight to create tension and suspense by choosing great places for pauses, rhythm changes, and emotional outbursts. If you can’t I am a fan of Snyder’s work and will continue to look for his narrations.
