I didn't expect much from the story, but was pleasantly surprised. This is not your typical post apocalypse story.

One of my favorite books done well.

Just irreverent enough not to be insulting. a perfect mix of humor and seriousness. The author has perfectly imagined Jesus the missing years.

This story is a lot of fun. Great listen

The author had me interested and invested in the characters in the first few minutes. The world of that is built feels like it has the sun shining, with just a slight cloud over the protagonist. A wonderful mix of real the world with something darker bleeding through.

Much better than the summary leads you to believe.

The story has much more depth and character development than I thought it would. Very entertained and engaged up to the end. the end makes it obvious that this is going to be a series and a single stand alone story.

It is one of those stories that is realistic

Any additional comments?

This is a strong series. The story, narrator production value everything is solid. No over the top action. No macho BS. Just solid character and great narration across the series. The only down sound so far is that Adrien is a cat person. We all know that cats are the gate keepers of hell. Other than that good series, strong story telling and he can,t write female characters with out turning them into charactures. "Go team Vagina"!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This was not time well spent. By the time I got half way through I was only listening so I could be done with it.

Would you be willing to try another book from Patrick D'Orazio? Why or why not?

Yes. The first two books in this series were pretty good.

Any additional comments?

By the end I wanted every character to die. This may spoil the book for anyone that wants to listen, so be warned. The book picks up at the very end of the second, and from there is just one long slog of being chased and characters trying to reconnect. They action in this book is so no stop that it goes beyond suspension of disbelief into bad action movie fight sequence. This overall made the listen very tedious. It was only stubbornness that made me hear it through to the very end. After I was done I listened to Day by Day Armageddon just so I would not have this book's disappointment stuck in my head.
