Publisher's Summary

A North Carolina combat vet finds himself far from home on the front lines of an environmental battle to save the planet in an award-winning author’s provocative story of a twenty-first-century Wild West.

Joel Dunbar, the last branch of an Appalachian family tree, accepts a mysterious invitation from a billionaire plutocrat to attend a conservation expo in San Francisco. The rock star environmentalist has startling plans for the future and a caveat for Joel: don’t ask too many questions, and don’t divulge any answers. But when Joel befriends a rebellious eco-friendly Arizona rancher, he’s roped into a new kind of war, with new kinds of casualties.

Skip Horack’s Falls the Shadow is part of Warmer, a collection of seven visions of a conceivable tomorrow by today’s most thought-provoking authors. Alarming, inventive, intimate, and frightening, each story can be read, or listened to, in a single breathtaking sitting.

story seemed flat

The story was pretty dull. I kept waiting for something interesting or a twist but in the end it was just pretty dull.

It felt like the train actually jumped tracks...

What the hell happened to this story? I listened to it and felt that the end wasn't so much of a train wreck, but that the train actually jumped tracks and we ended up in a totally different story... It made my head swim, I even wondered if I'd missed part of it, and backed up to be sure. Nope, I didn't miss it, and it had to be the same story, cause our protagonist was there...
Narration was fine... hummm...

The narration was distracting.

The narrator's fast-pace was an annoying distraction. It was read as if a great deal of the writing was one massive, run-on sentence filled with random commentary. The title is only 37 minutes long and I couldn't even finish it.

Confused

The author spends most of the story describing details, that are irrelevant for the most part. Very little storytelling, no clue what his point was. Don’t waste your time.

Senseless

Well read, interesting characters, but pointless. I was left feeling disappointed, my time was wasted

What? That's it?

I'm not sure I understand the point of this piece. it seemed to end very abruptly with no real point or conclusion to the story. The narrator was mostly fine, but perhaps a bit boring.
