Publisher's Summary

Dick, AKA Devil Dog's world changes drastically when the EMP takes out the power grid. The loss of electricity brings out the darker side of human nature across the city. A homeless Marine veteran living in the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago, he's far better prepared than most people. Good folk have survived, but they are often outnumbered and outgunned. Only the tunnels provide the safety he needs.

Devil Dog becomes the reluctant savior of women and children from the worst of the gangs that now rule topside. Doing the right thing makes him new enemies, driving him ever deeper into the tunnels that keep his charges safe - until he runs across a young woman who might be his daughter.

Compelling

Where does Devil Dog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 10.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil Dog?

I dont recall a specific moment or moments. The story is rather unique in the post-apocalyptic genre. Kevin Pierce is a great choice in narrator for this story.

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

A good narrator is always the difference between a good and bad listening experience. In this example, Kevin Pierce was a good choice.

Any additional comments?

This story is overall really good. Most authors chose to use either a law enforcement or military background as their primary character. Many times that idea can be over played, but in this case, the author sets up the story differently. As the story continues in the subsequent continuations, its a very compelling story. This story has a very down to earth feel to it. I'm very happy with this story and I have enjoyed the continuations and look forward to the story continuing.

Too much unnecessary profanity

I enjoyed the basic idea of this book and enjoyed The narration – although character performance would have been nice – but why all of the gratuitous and excessive profanity? Guess some people think that's necessary to be cool. How very sad ...

Just what I needed!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So often in PA books the hero is perfect at everything. That gets a little old after awhile. The "hero" in this book wasn't perfect, he was a flawed man doing the best he could under the circumstances. His flaw made him more real to me and you will find Devil Dog to be a guy that you are cheering for.

My complaint is one I often make with books under 10 hours - it was too short! As a avid reader/listener I can fly through books like this - especially ones that I lose myself in. I was provided this book in exchange for a review. Mr. Craven if you see this, thanks for the listen, great book BUT please write longer ones so I can get a few more hours of enjoyment please!!

Good Book

This book was an interesting take on the apocalypse.

The storyline was a bit predictable but I plan to listen to the next book to see if it has more new information.

Kevin Pierce is an amazing storyteller!

Shows what War can do

War and being in the armed forces can destroy a person and this book goes into some of that. This book also shows that these people that suffer from PTSD can come back from that brink and are still amazing people. This guy just needed some help... ie apocalypse to help him on his way back! Great story and narration!
