Publisher's Summary

"I've been told that the entire continent of Antarctica groaned at the moment of my birth. The howl tore across glaciers, over mountains and deep into the ice. Everyone says so. Except for my father; all he heard was Mother's sobs. Not of pain, but of joy, so he says. Other than that, the only verifiable fact about the day I was born is that an iceberg the size of Los Angeles broke free from the ice shelf a few miles off the coast. Again, some would have me believe the fracture took place as I entered the world. But all that really matters, according to my parents, is that I, Solomon Ull Vincent, the first child born on Antarctica - the first and only Antarctican - was born on September 2nd, 1974.

"If only someone could have warned me that, upon my return to the continent of my birth thirteen years later, I would be kidnapped, subjected to tortures beyond comprehension and forced to fight... and kill. If only someone had hinted that I'd wind up struggling to survive in a subterranean world full of ancient warriors, strange creatures and supernatural powers.

"Had I been warned I might have lived a normal life. The human race might have remained safe. And the fate of the world might not rest on my shoulders. Had I been warned....

"This is my story - the tale of Solomon Ull Vincent - The Last Hunter."

My First Audio Book

Where does The Last Hunter - Descent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's the best, so far, but it's my only one. I really enjoyed it, so I'll be getting more!

It had to be his voice for the Nephilim.

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

If I could have listened to it in one sitting, I would have, but that's never going to be possible with my schedule.

I've read the book, and it's my favorite series, but instead of simply reading it again, I wanted to see this series from a new perspective. I thought R.C. Bray did a great job narrating the story, and exceeded my expectations!

RC Bray is awesome

Any additional comments?

RC Bray is an amazing narrator, who brings Sol and the other characters even more to life than I imagined possible. I was really impressed with the different voices he uses, and the extra effort he took to make them supernatural.<br/>

Better then expected and less

Okay I bought this thinking it would be great. Then I started it and was questioning my decision. The story is great and the first chapter or so seemed a positive if slow start. However once they got to Antarctica. The story initially sped up into rapid action, which was great, however that action became have a book of oh my god lets detail out every aspect of this "breaking" which was not necessary. The steps yes those were necessary but did we really need paragraphs/pages descriptions of the insides of what he was eating raw and sleeping on? this took up most of the book and really seemed like gross filler and not really any point to it. About 3 and half hours into the 6 ish hour book, it took a turn and you finally began to understand what the over all story was and where it would be ultimately going. At this point the story began to get interesting. Interesting enough that I am considering the second novel, though not right away, it will likely be in the I will try it when I am looking for something to listen too. I am a little afraid of wasting have the book on nothing again.

Narration: This went back and forth. For the most part it was good, there were a few characters that I had to really question the choices made for them, and it grated me to listed to the narrator do them, but thankfully they were relatively small parts and I could ignore them.

So
Con: Slow start and lot of space that seemed like just filler.
Pro: It sets up for a positive continuation if the author can stay way from the random nothingness of filler.

Brainwashing a young boy with harsh lessons

This is the story of a young boy who was the only person born on Antarctica and somehow became a part of the land. His family leaves Antarctica shortly after he's born but surprises him with a trip back. He had been fascinated with the continent and had always wanted to visit it. As soon as he steps off the plane he fells like he's home. He's able to leave the plane without a coat and not feel the cold.

Shortly after they return the young boy is kidnapped and taken underground where there's another world. His "brainwashing" is harsh lessons and soon he forgets his previous life. Although he still retains some knowledge of before, he doesn't know why he knows certain things. You follow him as he learns from another hunter how to be the last hunter of Antarctica.

The narrator brought the story to life and was a perfect fit for the book.

A five star read!

I am glad that there are several books in this series, as I could not stop listening to this one. I loved Solomon's story and enjoyed seeing how he progressed and grew. The whole storyline was interesting to me, and I thought the characters and settings in this book were wonderful. As soon as I finish writing this review, I will start on the next book! R. C. Bray did an excellent job with the narration, which made the story even more enjoyable.

Worth a listen but not amazing for me.

The story was a bit "young" for me. It seems like it's geared for kids rather than adults or young adults but over all it was creative and different. Let's just say that If it were in print I would have put it down.

Just tired of these "action" scenes

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Focus on the meat of the story

What was most disappointing about Jeremy Robinson’s story?

Overdoing the movie style Rocky scenes. (hero gets beaten to death and then miraculously gets up and beat the other guy)

Any additional comments?

I bought the series and have no interest inlistening to the others.
