Publisher's Summary

Monsters, paramedics, and street medicine.

New paramedic Dean Flynn is fresh out of the academy. When he gets assigned to the unknown backwater ambulance Station U, he wonders what he did wrong. Then Dean learns that his patients aren't your normal 911 callers.

Dean and his partner Brynne Garvey serve the creatures of myth and legend living alongside their normal human neighbors in Elk City. With patients that are vampires, werewolves, fairies and more, will Dean survive his first days on the new job? Will his patients?

Not all is well on the streets of Elk City either, and some humans are striking out at their mythical neighbors. Dean soon finds himself in the middle of a series of attacks on his patients, attacks that implicate a former member of Station U.

Come along on this ride with "Extreme Medical Services" - part one of the series by the same name, a paranormal medical thrill-ride with the paramedics of Elk City. Described by one fan as "like Grimm, but with paramedics" this book is brought to you by best-selling author and real-life paramedic Jamie Davis. He crafts a book called an accurate, interesting, & fabulous pause-resister.

Mispronunciations

I really wanted to like this book but there are 2 things that caused me to give it 2 stars. The minute drawn out detail just seems like filler. The mispronunciation of simple medical term/lab/medication. I’m an RN and these mispronunciation grate on my nerves. It seem that if your going to narrate a book you should look up the correct pronounciation.

Interesting angle on the paranormal.

The very detailed paramedical story line was extremely believable. At times, it was reminiscent of the old TV show Emergency. However, the scenes dealing with law enforcement and the criminal justice system were less authentic. I am used to that, so it didn't interfere with my enjotment of the characters.

Awkward pauses

The story would probably be better if I read the book. The narration has awkward pauses which are very frustrating and make it hard to be engaged with the story. It’s like he is reading the story for the first time and breaks the sentences in weird places. Ex. Dean thought zack would’ve been helpful clearly......he was mistaken. So your brain skips and has to reprocess what he said

Give it a chance

Ok so the first book has a lot of technical jargon that you lay people may not appreciate but all of us who are fantasy lovers in the medical field will love. There is still an awesome plot for everyone else. For all the normal people reading this, (medical people are not normal but we like being weird) this is what it really is like being on the ambulance except that in real life our patients don't have super powers and my boss would kill me if I got that many refusals. Oh and there aren't evil psychopaths coming behind me after my patients. It is so good technically that I may give it to my middle child who is currently finishing his Paramedic degree because well it's good enough to provide a refresher on what he has learned in class while giving him an escape from all the stress Paramedic school brings. Most people don't realize Paramedics have to learn about 3/4 of what an ER doctor knows in a 1 year class after passing their EMT class and doing prerequisites and then do twice the clinicals most nursing students do. So we cram 3 years of schooling into a little under 2 years and get an Associate's Degree just like nurses. We really do run into "Gibby" types. We really do know the ER staff by name and voice. We are a family. Let's face it we usually get paid less than the McDonald's fry cook and spend more time with our co-workers and patients than our blood family. So we don't do this for the money which is another thing that is right on target for this series. The "good" medics that make it are all about the patient's and family no matter what form that family takes. Can't wait to "read" the second set.

Fun Read

Performance is a bit stilted with some odd mid sentence pauses but is otherwise good. Story is interesting and the medical info is accurate. Medical stuff doesn’t overwhelm the story line. Looking forward to the next set.

boring

Way too overly procedural. I feel like I'm listening to a text book on how to be a paramedic. I could not get involved in the story at all

Great real life experience

As a retired medical professional this book hit home. I had patients who thought they were vampires. And generally just every patient in this book I’ve treated maybe not real but they thought they were. Great book
