A Dark and Gloomy Revenge Story

3.5 out of 5 stars

In Rising, Battle is back but he finds himself a new companion. After being left for dead — he vows to get revenge on the three men who left him for dead. The wake that Battle leaves is unbelievable.

Rising showed a completely different Battle. Honestly, it was a Battle I didn’t enjoy as much. It definitely had a “Taken” feel to it where he would do absolutely anything to get revenge. I think the addition of Lou really helped make this story for me. She was a little firepot and the conversations between Battle and her were sometimes outright hilarious.

Because this book was so dark, the comedic breaks were really needed. One of the reoccurring ones was calling the people who he was after Storm Troopers and saying “If these people could shoot, I’d be dead three times over” were easily two of the funniest moments in Rising. Another was the continuous comparison to the Wizard of Oz. It added those little “smile” moments in an otherwise dark and gloomy tale.

The whole “revenge” plot in this didn’t do it for me. It wasn’t that it felt forced, but it really felt out of character for Battle — even after what happened at the start of this story. I know that readers (me included) wanted more stories but changing the way a character acts after three books is a hard 90-degree turn to take.

Overall, my least favorite book in the Traveler series, but I didn’t hate it. The moments of laughter and conversation between Battle and Lou saved this one for me. And the fact that Kevin Pierce narrated it! I’m really intrigued to see what happens to Battle (and maybe Lou) in book 5. I hope that the story is a little less revenge next time.

waiting on Battle

This book was really good, it's nice to see Battle's maturation. Marcus battle was a recluse and it's nice ti see him through all these books face different situations as he continues to battle his inner demons.

Traveling the revenge road.

Our hero Marcus Battle gets no breaks in this life. Sorrow and tragedy follow him like a doting puppy. Losing his first family to the Scourge, he mourned the loss for five years as he fought and struggled to survive this new apocalyptic world. Amazingly, Battle was blessed with another family, which he rescued post-scourge. Throughout the next five years Battle strove to restore and rebuild what had been lost, but tragedy reared its ugly head and struck again. Once more Battle was a man without a family and without a home. Now he traveled the revenge road, searching for the men who took everything and left him for dead. This is a wonderful story and excellent furtherance of a great series. I look forward to the next installment “Battle” when Audible acquires it.

Good Guys Win...

I like Marcus Battle character a lot. Kevin Pierce is perfect narrator for this series. Let's have a book five. Don't kill off Fifty or Lou, they are perfect partners for Major Battle

Rising from the ashes.

One of the best books I've encountered in a while.
Trust me , I'm a long haul trucker and i go through audio books like most people do TV shows .
Tom Abrahams has brought the Traveler series back with a bang.
This modern day western dystopian is absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!
Marcus Battle is today's John Wayne.
Kevin Pierce makes the story flow with his vocal style and grace bringing each character to life.

The best yet.

This book series keeps getting better. Just when it seems that all hope is lost, the story takes a turn. Battle is all thumbs, with two left feet and comes to terms with the realization that he needs other good people, sometimes more than they need him.
