Publisher's Summary

The Dice Are Cast...

Death Watches and Waits

The sanctuary walls were breached and through them poured screaming hordes of night runners. About to be overrun, the survivors formed a last stand against the thousands that threatened to end their existence. Inexplicably, the night runners, who were on the verge of taking one of the last vestiges of humanity, departed, carrying the limp body of Lynn with them.

Communications with the compound failed as Jack was out searching for additional survivors, leaving him unaware of what was happening at home. A tragedy sends him rushing back where he learns about the attack and Lynn being taken. Not knowing if she's alive or dead, he sets off in search for her.

A mysterious image is sent setting forth a confrontation with Sandra, the female night runner responsible for the attack on the sanctuary. Is Lynn alive, or is this some elaborate trap? Jack will put everything on the line in order to find out.

When logical reasoning fails...

Insanity must be expected

JACK IS A GREAT MAIN MAN!!!

What made the experience of listening to A New World the most enjoyable?

Jack...well and Mark Gagliardi as Jack...so I guess John O'Brien too...I have become quite enamored with Jack..he is such a good man...he is a great dad, great partner, great leader...I just adore him!

Who was your favorite character and why?

DUH! JACK!!!! ^^^^^ LOL

What about Mark Gagliardi’s performance did you like?

I love his narrating...He IS Jack Walker for me...he is good....I will listen to more of his work...so he better do some more books!!! lol

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both!

Any additional comments?

I am on to book 8....I loved this one...the search and rescue for the soldiers...finding others and helping people.... .The Rescue of Lynn...and yet ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER ENDING!!!!!!!!! Book 8 is in my ears now! LOL Jack is a GREAT main character...his snarkiness and love for others is remarkable and makes me just adore him!!!

Great story! I wish the next one was available now

You would think that after eight books this author's imagination would run dry on the topic of "Night Runners", but he keeps it entertaining with fresh content, including side stories and new situations for the main characters.

Good book, Great narration.

Well, I liked the book. It seems as though they are doing a lot of busy work in this one and not much of note happens for most of the book. And I truly despise cliffhanger books, especially when they are new books, mostly because you are left hanging the whole time it takes to write the followup book.
That being said I really like the practicality the author puts into his work. The things talked about in this series are things you would have to think about if anything ever happened like this, hey don't knock it, you never know. lol.

Another cliff hanger!!!!

Very entertaining if you like post apocalyptic zombie type survival listens!!! I've listen to all of the new World Series and can't wait for the next. While this isn't normally my taste! I find the style and the narrator a little over the top. I can't help but enjoy this series!!! So much macho fun, with just enough humanity to keep it grounded. Enjoy!!'

Nice twist in the New World series

Really enjoying the New World Series by O'Brien. Like this strange turn of events, puts quite a wrinkle in the battle for survival from the Night Runners. A great read, lots of adventure and action, and relatable characters. I recommend the series.

It just keeps getting better and better!

Would you listen to A New World again? Why?

Yes! There were so many twist and turns and it just kept me on my toes! I feel like I'm sure I missed something and I would catch things with a second listen.

Which character – as performed by Mark Gagliardi – was your favorite?

Jack but I think he did a good job with them all

Any additional comments?

This series just keeps getting better with each book I can't wait for the next!

John O'Brien is a Genius of Zombie Fiction!

Any additional comments?

Jack Walker, Greg and Red Team are awesome. If you’ve come this far in the series, I would suggest that it is now impossible to stop. Just buy the rest of the set to be sure you can binge uninterrupted! This book is highly recommended!
