Publisher's Summary

What if you woke up one day and everything you ever knew had gone? The people you encounter want to take everything you have - including your life. The cities you used to visit are reduced to uninhabitable ruins. There is no law and order and no government or organized society. Even worse, you have no recollection of how it got this way. Nor do you know who you are. Your friends and family are nowhere to be found. Are you a hero or a villain? Perhaps a nobody? All you have is a handful of photos of a wife and a daughter you don't remember and the will to live. That is the world before Zed. What would you do?

It is day one in the Wasteland for Zed - the first day in a nightmarish existence he could never have imagined. In every direction he faces hostile and feral survivors. Savage gangs rule the ruined cities and shantytowns, and their brutal leaders rule like feudal lords.

Zed has almost nothing left in the world, yet everyone wants what little remains. He must fight for survival but also try to find answers, to seek an explanation for the catastrophic world he inhabits. Is his family still alive? Is there anyone left who doesn't want to kill him to take what is his?

15 Years Later: Wasteland is a brand-new action-packed sci-fi adventure from the best-selling author of the Battle Earth and Battle Beyond Earth series.

Mad max with amnesia

This audiobook was provided to me by the author narrator or publisher at no cost to me by audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review. Good story a little repetitive in the character interactions...climactic battle seen was good.

Post Apocalyptic Action/Adventure

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Would definitely recommend to fans of this genre.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rave really stood out for me. She seemed to have to most growth in the story as a character from when we first meet her.

What about Neal Arango’s performance did you like?

Neal Arango's performance was quite lively and engaging. He voiced the characters very well, and made them all distinct so I knew who was speaking at all times.

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

The story was intriguing and filled with just enough mystery that I kept wanting to continue on to the next chapter.

Any additional comments?

I hope there is more to this story, as I would like to find out more about "the boss".

Hard to label

What did you love best about 15 Years Later: Wasteland?

I loved the part of the book where Zed escaped from the prison. The book was well-written and different enough to be interesting. Zed's escape was an example of being exciting and original.

What does Neal Arango bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Neal did a very good job of reading the book. The voices were good, but not too far over the top. His voice really became a non-issue which is really what you want from an audiobook. It was like I was reading it. Very well done!

More "action/thriller" than "survival"

While this book is set in a post-apocalyptical world, I really didn't feel this book is so much about survival (outside of typical fight/war scenes) as much as it is a mystery/action/thriller. Unfortunately... that's not really what I was looking for.

It did have some interesting plot twists and it was surprising at times, but I didn't really feel the plot was that believable and I had a hard time caring about the characters.

The narrator makes such a huge difference in my enjoyment in audio books. (I can't listen to ANYTHING Kevin Pierce reads! ) I was a bit worried at first when I started listening to this book. I was concerned it was going to be over the top like some of the old "Graphic Audio" thrillers, but I really warmed up to this narrator. I'm not sure that he would make my top 5, but I'm looking forward to hearing him read a book that I find more enjoyable to find out. Maybe he could re-record some of Kevin Pierce's work! Haha

Good story with plenty of action

This was a very enjoyable listen. The narrator did a good job in his delivery throughout. I always like stories where the main character is a more normal, person who can be related to vs. the ex-Delta Force type character. This one is even more interesting with the amnesia that he has to deal with. I definitely recommend this book if you like the dystopian end of the world genre - with no zombies.

15 Years Later: Wasteland

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

A dystopian with twists and turns., and a few surprises. Not my favorite, but not too bad.

Loved the characters

The author brings the characters to life in this one and the narrator does a good job of delivering it. The storyline is good as well, very detailed imagery. This is what I would imagine a post apocalyptic world would be. I look forward to future books with these characters in this hellish world...

Is there a sequel? Please be a sequel!

What did you love best about 15 Years Later: Wasteland?

The story. It was packed full of adventure and had a few twists. There are a lot of similar type books in this genre but I thought this was great.

What did you like best about this story?

I really liked how the main character wasn't an over the top, cocky, know it all. It made him feel more real.

Have you listened to any of Neal Arango’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't believe so, but he did an excellent job with this book

good post-apocalyptic

I just finished the book and thought it was enjoyable. It is a good post-apocalyptic without the zombies. It still has blood and gore and held my interest to find out more with Zed, I would recommend this book. The narrator did a decent job as well. This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. THANK YOU!

the perfect blend of blood, gore, and plot

Where does 15 Years Later: Wasteland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I liked it. The book throws the reader into the middle of a dramatic situation, and then as you progress it starts to share more and more of what's happening with you. What a great way of grabbing your interest!

What was one of the most memorable moments of 15 Years Later: Wasteland?

I like how it starts and the enigma that is Zed

What does Neal Arango bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

It's a fast paced story and I think the narration captures this well. The narrator does all the hard work for you in this sense and you can sit back and let them sweep you along in the roller coaster ride. A good voice for this book it drew me in.

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

Yes
