Publisher's Summary

By the most ludicrous of means, special ops soldier Clayton Sanders had a warning that something was going to happen to the world. Clay prepared for the worst, but just because you're well prepared doesn't mean everything is going to be okay. Clay has faced some of the worst humanity has to offer in all parts of the world, but now he is faced with something much worse than terrorists. His family.

Having returned home at great cost to himself, Clay has prepared his family as best he could in secret, but now that the crap has actually hit the fan, things aren't going as he had hoped. Having planned for his family to shelter in place at their farm and ride out the worst of the disaster, that plan goes completely haywire within days and doesn't get any better. Forced by his family's actions to abandon his initial plan, Clay and his friends must adapt quickly and make a new plan on the fly.

Faced with armed gangs and a leader who shocks them all, how will things play out for Clay and the others? Especially when his own family members can't seem to remember the plan and continuously make things hard on him and the rest?

Good Series

I’m so glad I found another apocalypse series to listen to. And this one is really really good. Started off I thought a little odd but it just gives you time to know the characters well. It’s a real story and I finished two books and I’m so much looking forward to all of the rest. There’s not a lot of curse words, which some of these books overdo. But there is good action and good personal stories. I am thoroughly enjoying this!

Great Series, can't wait for the next book

I finished all 3 books in this series in less then a week, great story. Only thing that could have made it better is if it was narrated by Kevin Pierce, which by no means is a dig on Lee Allen, because he does a great job, but Kevin Pierce just does end of the world like no other.

Too much padding and unrealistic

Where to start... this series is padded with a ton of yaya, most of which is unrealistic and boring. This is clearly an effort to stretch out the number of books in the series. If the Outlander series has thousands of pages and are each over 44 hours in length, then by producing very short stories (not even a real book-length publication) and putting them out as a serial, then shame on Reed and Amazon. He is now up to 12 books in this series, which should have been edited down to half of that. Again, if the Outlander series of seven books, each about 44 hours per book, can edit out the filler, then so can Reed and other the other authors who pad their stories.

There is way too much sexist bull, too much religious nonsense, with unrealistic opportunity to add to their little community with things the regular person couldn't obtain. The little ranch is blessed with finding someone with a photographic memory who just happened to read the entire encyclopedia; family members who have every skill imaginable, boatloads of extreme weapons and equipment, genius teenagers, and on and on and on. Add to that, it is in serious need of editing. The narrator's missteps have not been removed, so we hear him clearing his throat and then repeating the same few lines.

Most, if not all, of the very irritating people in the little group are women. The irritating men quickly redeem themselves. A good story teller knows that you shouldn't write a character as all good or evil, as all irritating, worthless, etc.

They conveniently have everything they need from weapons to supplies, to land, etc. All because they stole it from an African warlord.

I still gave it a three star score because parts are very interesting. But the narrator says M.R.A.P. instead of pronouncing it as M-rap. and too many other examples such as that.

Lack of quality Narration takes away from the story

Brotherhood of Fire is a great story. Well thought out ways to help survive. Unfortunately the narrator does a poor job. It’s difficult to follow at times because there is only an old mans voice, a young mans voice and a female voice used for many different characters . Also one third of the book could be cut out that us nothing but annoying drama with women. I plan to keep listening but I sure hope the next one is better. If it’s the same drama and bad narration I do t think I’ll continue. Good post apocalyptic story otherwise.

WOW! It keeps getting better

This series was so good I didn't even take the time to write a review. I went straight for the next book, then the next book and now book 8 is finished. Keep going, several twists and turns. This is just a good story. I normally listen to books that have thousands of reviews, best sellers and they don't write a good story like this. The narrator grew on me. He does the Old Man very well, Clay, Brick and many others. You can see the layout of the land, the towns the fortified positions it all comes to life. You have good guys you like, bad guys you like to hate and the survival of a family. Many hard choices to make. Keep going the series keeps getting better and better.

Apocalyptic Adventure

Don't judge me but this is the third time of me reading this series. I am waiting patiently for the sixth installment, each character has me well invested in their journey. the writing is realistic but my favorite character is Leon (Pa) who is onerously complex and funny. Clay is the baby son who has a world of knowledge that isn't really given the respect deserves. All in all great narration and great novel.

A good lesson.

Mr. Reid is a great storyteller. Really enjoyed the series. The narrator does a pretty good job but is a little week on female voices which is not unexpected. He does a outstanding job with the old man, Pa.

Awesome character development ... well done!

I have enjoyed books one and two very much. The dive into the overlooked interpersonal challenges that would likely emerge in this environment was a fine touch of brilliant character development. This is a skill modern authors often lack ... This author does a fine job.
