    Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail....

    My lowest rating ever

    I think this book would have received much better rating if it weren't for the narrator – Oh My Giggles! He sounds like The “Macho Man” Randy Savage ..Show More »

    Jack Walker journeyed halfway around the world and completed his daring rescue. He must now return home, traversing a world filled with endless hordes of night runners; the genetically altered, ferocious species that now inhabit the dark recesses left over from the demise of mankind and now dominate the planet. The only things more dominant are the billions of corpses left to rot where they died.

    Narrator is terrible

    The narrator on this series is horrible which is frustrating brcause the story is good.

    Awareness grows... The gathering commences.... The world has changed. Jack Walker and the other survivors must adjust with it if they are to have a chance. They've managed to stay one step ahead so far but the gap is narrowing. The night runners are growing and adapting. The rules are changing. Winter is coming and the survivors must ready themselves for the long season. With Robert and Bri rescued from captivity, Jack focuses on the days ahead.

    This is the best book in the series so far

    For me, there has been time in between Taken and Awakening. For Jack and the crew, very little time has passed.

    Right form the get go O’Brien..Show More »

    One threat has been destroyed - another grows stronger. Even though Jack and the teams have won a major confrontation, their lives still hang by a thread. There are decisions to be made, and ones that have never been more critical.

    Awesome series! But why....

    Why does this have to be the last book?

    I sure hope he can resurrect the series using "A shrouded world" series.
