Publisher's Summary

Gather, Darkness! is a science-fiction classic. It tells the story of Armon Jarles, a man on the edge, living amidst the disputes of two rival powers at large in the world. 360 years after a nuclear holocaust ravaged mankind, throwing society back into the dark ages, the world is fraught with chaos and superstition. The new rulers over the masses of humanity are the techno-priests of the Great God, endowed with scientific knowledge lost to the rest of humanity.

Gather Darkness!

This is my first book from audible and with so much choice it was difficult to choose. In the end I plumped for a Fritz Leiber book as I am familiar with his work and have never read this one. The narration is superb, when Jonathon Davis uttered the words "Gather Darkness", it sent a shiver down my spine, I had to listen to it 2 or 3 times it was so good. The story is excellent, but the way it was read elevates the experience to a different level. I would give the story 8/10 and the reading 10/10.
