Publisher's Summary

Kaiden Jericho's life just went sideways.

He has been working odd jobs since the first school year ended.

(People have to eat, right?)

The problem? He isn't as prepared as he thinks he is.

Out in the jungles of the Amazon, Kaiden meets a new set of nightmares, and death there is permanent.

Even with all his previous training in the Animus, will Kaiden survive?

You don't become the best of the best by staying alive. In the Animus, you are closer to perfection with each death you suffer.

Kaiden Jericho would rather skip the death part, thank you very much.

Includes special note from co-author Michael Anderle.

well written with an incredible narrator

Joshua and Michael Anderle do an amazing job co-writing this series. Scott Aiello truly does a masterful job bring the characters that the authors have created to life. Looking forward to the next book and what it has in store.

Too short but good

Great book, amazing series, but way too short. Going to lose fans if you try to drag out the series by making more books but they are hours shorter

Still love the series

I almost never buy books below eight hours long but I made an acception here. It's worth the credit. I relally love the bad guy Sunny. Hope that he sticks around for a book or two.

Handsome Jack meets Gin!

A new bad guy is in town and man oh man! For you gamers out there this is 100% Handsome Jack from borderlands 2 type of a bad guy! I could not stop listening and laughing. Can't wait for book 5! Great story and love the new dramas and absolutely hate the authors for making me wait to see what happens next! lol JK.

Well written but oh so short.

It's... ok, but way to short, and ends in an odd way. Even starts in an odd way, doing one of those, "start the story in the middle, then flashback to show us what we missed" things. However, it only does it once, making it feel disjointed as I kept expecting it to flashback every time he lost consciousness. Why even do it at all if you only planned to do it once?

Aside from that, every other book has ended in a satisfying way, typically with him beating a midterm test or something. This one ends a week before a vauge test with him dealing with PTSD and fighting Werewolves to build his flagging confidence. If you were going to bring PTSD into this it feels a bit dismissive to have it come off as resolved so fast.

Again I have to point out how short this is, shortest book in the series so far if I'm not mistaken. Most of it was focused on Jericho, a few disposable fodder, and a Bounty hunter akin to Boba Fet in reputation. All the other side characters are relogated to little more than a cheering squad.

Also, PLEASE don't add some half baked romance with Chio. It's perfected fine to be opposite genders, and still be friends. It would be refreshing infact.

The only real redeeming feature of this book is the Villan. He was interesting, and fun. Though he could have killed everyone easily If he'd stop messing around. Feels a bit lackluster in that regard. As if the only reason he didn't was for the sake of the plot.

The narration is as good as always to.

felt short

the story was good but didnt follow the same theme as the other books. I hope the return to the original style to the books. the new setup made it feel short and that it wasnt actually part of the series. It was good but I'm still on the fence.

Not what I was expecting

So the first 3 books of the series were great fun read that we a lot more light hearted. The book shifts gears and shows that the protagonist is an immortal God but a guy still learning the ropes. I really appreciate that after going through a all the hard times in the meat of the story that it depicted the after effects and his recovery. Great work and can’t wait for the next audiobook.
