Publisher's Summary

Raina was just a girl when the plague came. She survived. Her parents didn't. Neither did the world. As civilization fell, she took to the ruins of Los Angeles, eating whatever she could catch. After two years alone, she's found and adopted by a fisherman and his wife. Their makeshift family lives a quiet life - until a man named Karslaw sails in from Catalina Island with an army of conquerors. Driven by visions of empire, he executes Raina's new father as a traitor and takes her mother captive. But Karslaw's people aren't the only ones vying for control of the ruined land. As violence wracks the city, Raina joins a rebellion against Karslaw's rule. She will stop at nothing to free her mother - and to have her revenge.

Another Victory for Robertson

This series has been one of my favorites to listen to. The performance is captivating from beginning to end, and the story keeps a solid pace throughout.

Return to form

Any additional comments?

This book took me a little by surprise - after book 2 in the series it took me a while before getting back into it , as I was disappointed. The performance by Ray Chase was as good as ever, the parallel story lines crafted expertly so that at times they touched but were still allowed on their own way. I welcomed the return of Walt, visits by Ness and Sebastian, and the new perspective on events afforded by a 15 year old girl.

Overall the dry wit, narration and characterization was the best part, and leaving aside yet more overt nods to Game of Thrones ( Medieval marauders with meglomaniac leader,living in an island castle, the main female character behaving very similar to Arya, complete with assassin like training, even a totem called Reek, for goodness sake) it was an enjoyable adventure.

Great After The End of the World Story

Would you consider the audio edition of Knifepoint to be better than the print version?

Don't actually read for entertainment. I have no idea.

What did you like best about this story?

I like "end of the world" stories but this one was fun to listen to. For this type of subject matter, I was surprised I laughed so much. The dark humor was quite funny.

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

Ray Chase did an excellent job bringing the characters to life. With the dark humor, he played off the lines really well. I will have to see what else Mr. Chase has narrated.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, but I did finish the story fast for me. I wish there were more stories in the series. I figure I will take a break because I read 1, 2 and 3 pretty quickly, one after another. I will read something else and come back to book 4.

Any additional comments?

I was surprised that I really enjoyed this series and had quite a few laughs. Hopefully this author has other books I might like.

LOVE series--but Audible DOESNT have books 4, 5&6

What did you like best about this story?

The different point of views offered. But why doesn't Audible carry books 4, 5, 6???????? Because you can't get books 4, 5, 6 I'd say don't even bother to read the series. It's too disappointing not being able to continue with the story.

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

He reads with great feeling.

Any additional comments?

Audible--get it together. It's bad business to only carry HALF the series. The other half has been out for a YEAR.
