Publisher's Summary

The human race hangs by a thread the thickness of a single gene: RC-714. The gene, which unlocks the millennia of genetic traits stored in junk DNA, gives crops the ability to rapidly evolve and thrive in any environment. But RC-714 is passed on when consumed. Any creature - mammal, reptile, fish, or insect - that eats the genetically modified crops becomes a slave to the Change. Bodies morph into unrecognizable abominations. Intellect takes a back seat to ravenous hunger. And all the world's species eat each other toward extinction.

Racing against this impending outcome, Peter Crane and his family attempt to reach a laboratory in Boston where a slim hope of saving the human race from extinction exists. But before heading northeast, they must visit the swamps of South Carolina's Hellhole Bay to find a scientist who can help undo the damage done by ExoGen, the corporation that created and unleashed RC-714. Upon reaching Hellhole, the family is captured by a man named Mason, who not only survived the Change, but managed to keep a small community alive as well - a community that is subject to his every carnal desire and whim.

Trapped in the clutches of a man whose heart is as twisted as the monsters that roam the Earth, Peter, Ella, Jakob, Anne, and Alia must fight for their freedom from a literal hellhole. Danger lurks behind every door, stalks beneath the swampy waters, and descends from the sky. As enemies - both human and ExoGenetic - close in, surviving will be harder than ever, and for some, impossible.

Apocalyptic Appetite Killer

This series will appeal to fans of action thrillers and science fiction buffs. It's fast paced with unique characters. The premise is terrifying because you CAN imagine something going really sideways with a plan to genetically modify crops (to taste better and grow faster even in the most inhospitable places) to feed the desperately hungry. Great narration. Can't wait for Book 3.

So many things wanting to kill and/or eat you.

The consequences of RC-714 continue to escalate. Genetically modified creatures and people who have eaten the bounty of RC-714 become more dangerous and in some cases smarter every day. ExoGen security continue to search for Ella and Anne. So many things to avoid, so many things wanting to kill and/or eat you. Peter and his son Jakob protecting Ella, Anne and Alia struggle to continue their journey to the east coast. Ella has another lab in Boston where she believes she can help the contaminated world going forward. The trick is getting there alive. Traveling through South Carolina they are captured by a misfit named Mason. Mason and his small community of survivors are the last place you want to wind up; his sexual inclinations less than admirable. Time to get out of Dodge. Will our merry band of survivors make it to Boston or will ExoGen and the vast array of altered creatures spoil their plans? Looks like we’ll have to wait for book three to find out.

If you thought Hunger was good…

4.75 out of 5 stars

Feast really delivers from all aspects. I really enjoyed Hunger, and I wasn’t sure how good Feast was going to be. I was pleasantly surprised that it was better than I was expecting, and might even be better than the first book.

The narration for Feast was done by Jeffrey Kafer who is a master of his craft. His voice provides the perfect soundtrack for this novel. Making sure that the pace and everything matched perfectly with the book.

The continued story follows the same group of people that it followed in the first (I won’t ruin it by telling you exactly who) on their journey towards Boston. The story itself was fast-paced and felt like it was over before I blinked.

It was really enjoyable, a mixture of “what the?” and “well, that was awesome!” which is pretty awesome for any book to do. Jeremiah Knight aka Jeremy Robinson definitely knows how to write about monsters. Every book I read of his always finds a way to surprise me. Even when I know that a monster (or in this case a highly evolved animal) is coming it still surprises me the way that he can explain them with ease and terror.

Overall, Feast was a great second book to the series. Expect a third book, because the story is definitely not done.

I received this book for free. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Excellent Sequel

This book is one of the few examples of a sequel that lives up to the original. It is a great story that builds on the characters' personalities and plight. The plot moves along fluidly, and Knight's imagination is on full display as his newest creatures are more horrific than ever.

Started With A Bang...Ended In A Fizzle!!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book based on the first one, and it being a decent follow-up, but the ending is lacking.

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

All characters are great, Jeffrey Kafer is the reason for me listening to this, and the first part.

Did Feast inspire you to do anything?

Because I did not like the ending, I was inspired to find another series to delve into.

Any additional comments?

Jeffrey Kafer, keep doing your thing, you are the Boss as a narrator! Jeremiah Knight, I hope that you are writing a follow-up to this one, and please, take your time, develop a twisting, action packed conclusion! Once you do that, let me know, and I will retract all I said here.

Hunger can be a deadly motivation

Any additional comments?

Every bit as hard-charging as the first book in the series, this release kept me listing well past the completion of my homeward commute (I read the audio version). With the world devolved into primordial chaos, one would assume the greatest threats would be the mutated creatures stalking the wild. Sadly, it seems it's the holdouts left from "civilized" society who are the most dangerous and depraved. As Peter and his family fight hostile forces from all directions they also find an unlikely ally. And there may yet be hope for the human race. Looks like we'll find out about that in book #3.
