Publisher's Summary

He’s got pirates behind him, sea monsters ahead of him and a boatload of passengers that refuse to get along.

It’s been a year since the events in Niagara Falls. Things have generally gotten better in the wasteland and civilization is starting to take hold along the rivers.

No one knows where the Librarian is, or if he’s alive, but there’s a man and a mastiff running passengers from Hannibal to Cairo that might have an idea as to what really happened.

Life is starting to return to normal along the river if you don’t count the pirates and the sea monsters. But all of that is about to change and the end of the world may never be the same again.

The Duck and Cover Adventures continue in book five, Crossroads of the Apocalypse.

It’s still the end of the world as you’ve never known it.

Just As Much Fun As The First 4 Books

I'd been checking Wallace's web site for the 5th book every month since finishing the last book, so I was thrilled to see it hit Audible. I went in with high expectations, but they were met and exceeded. If anything, there's more great humor in this one (even poking fun at itself at times). And the new setting and characters were a blast. The reader does an outstanding job and shifts between characters seamlessly. Just bummed I have to wait for the next book to come out now that it's over. Because, while I'm loathe to agree with that idiot Kane, everyone really DOES love a sequel. 😉

loved the continued story

this book seemed a bit short and lacked a suspenseful story line, however it was still a great book if you follow the series and I look forward to the next book.

if you love Old School Spaghetti Western / Trigun

love the story, the voice actor, the characters/dogs, the situational humor, and the "360 degree turn around on character building."

love it. I am glad the series will continue.

Apocalyptic fun-fest.

I got a three-book package and thought it was a risk worth taking for a credit. What surprised me was how a seemingly generic set of scenarios could be woven into an unmistakable series of adventures. To be taken as seriously as Indiana Jones and with credulity suspended, these have entertained me, no end. A combination of Boys Own adventure and teenage humour, beautifully written and flawlessly entertaining in it's narration, transported me in a way only the finest stories do. I love these romps because, for all the genericism, they are the finest in their genre.

Gripping from beginning to the end

Just when i thought you couldn’t add something new to a post apocalyptic book then came along Duck & Cover.
Comedy, pirates, amazing battles under unthinkable odds, a talking dog & a touch of romance . These books just keep getting better.

I hope these not a long wait until the next one

Brilliant set up to continue the saga

As the story began it felt like a casual epilogue into the life of our favourite Librarian from the aftermath of his tumble from the Falls. As the story unfolded it quickly turned that assumption right around as it setup up a rather brilliant continuation to the saga.

Narrated, as always, with comedic timing perfection from Phil Thron.

Next book, please!

Absolute Perfection

Benjamin's at his best here. Phil Thron is the perfect choice of voice actor for this series. I wish I could listen to this book for the first time again. The action is gripping, the humour is on point, the whole production is outstanding. I can't get enough.
