Publisher's Summary

The world is barely holding on. A century after a series of apocalyptic events, humanity is struggling to survive. In the frigid north of Scandinavia, people have returned to farming, fishing, and fighting amongst themselves, living as their ancient Viking ancestors once did. But their days in the world are numbered. The last tattered remnants of humankind have become barren. No new live births have occurred in over a decade. When the remaining population dies, the human race will end. 

When a call goes out to the greatest fighters in the North, men capable of surviving a long journey and crushing any obstacle in their path, a young female berserker named Val takes up the challenge. With her eyes hidden behind red-lens goggles, she violently proves her worth, seizes control of a small band of fellow berserkers, and heads south to claim her prize: the first glimmer of hope for a tomorrow. 

Traveling deep into the wastes of Europe, surrounded by dangerous landscapes and the mutated creatures that populate them, they find themselves pursued by enemies determined to stop them at all costs. Attacked from without and betrayed from within, Val fights for the future, and if she fails, humanity fails along with her. 

Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour imagine a world that has survived multiple apocalyptic events, mixing the savagery of the History Channel's Vikings with the frenetic chase scenes of Mad Max, resulting in a high-octane battle raging across Europe with the fate of humanity at stake.

Vikings!!!

In a ravaged world, in the wilds of Scandinavia, their is a civilisation that has survived..... barely. They are barren, with no live births in over a decade. A scientist has put a call out for the greatest warriors because there is hope for humanity, but it's in Italy, and with no way to get there quickly or safely, it's an important but extremely dangerous mission.

Val is determined to lead the mission, and with proving her worth in a battle, she is tasked with bringing the genetic material back from Italy. Along with a small group of Vikings, Val sets out with some provisions and the few quads they have managed to keep running. But the world is totally different than what they are used to and the group have to contend with mutated animals and groups of gangs. Can they make it or will this be the death of them?

I devoured this book!! It was absolutely brilliant!! Comparing it to "the savagery of the History Channel’s Vikings with the frenetic chase scenes of Mad Max" sums this up perfectly. I adored the Viking group, especially Val and Ulrick. Val was such a kick ass character and her second in command Ulrick was the same. Ulrick respects Val in a way none of the others do. He backs up her decisions and Val comes to rely on him too.

Right from the start, we are brought into the action and taken on an unforgettable journey. The world these authors have created was brutal, deadly and oh so good!! The team have to learn new things as they go, have to learn to work together and most importantly, learn to trust each other, and I loved seeing that play out. Things don't always work smoothly, but I loved how Val does her best for all her men.

In all, this was an action packed, adventurous and extremely fun book to read. I've always loved reading about the Vikings, and when you add in a creature feature, I knew I'd love this, and love it I did!! Filled with amazing characters, danger at every turn, deception and plenty of action, this is a must read for everyone!!! I really hope we get to see Val and Ulrick again soon.

What can I about Jeffrey Kaffers performance that I haven't said before?? Every book he reads, he brings his "A" game. He read this well and his accents were actually pretty good. I say that because he had to do quite a few different ones here and they were great. He is so easy to listen to and nails the performance.

I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Go Vikings!!

This is the first I’ve listened to a book by these authors. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would happily listen to another book by them.

The book synopsis basically says it all- Val, a female berserker, leads a group of eight fellow berserkers on a journey to collect something vital to the human race. Without it, it is believed humans will die out. The journey is perilous. They must cross Europe, navigate the unknown lands and local populations to reach their destination and collect what they’ve been entrusted to. Then, they have to manage to return home, a journey that could take years in this post-apocalyptic age. The book ends with an obvious lead up to the next book. I can’t wait to find out what happens next.

There is one character that says a swear word a few times but that’s the extent I recall. There are no explicit sex scenes. As for violence, there are fight scenes and some passages that the squeamish reader would likely want to gloss over, however, the description is not excessive.

I’ve listened to another book (Villain’s Rule) that Jeffrey Kafer narrated. I enjoyed his narration for that book as much as I did this one. He has distinguishable voices for each character and does the female voices and accents well. I’d love to listen to another book narrated by him.

Dissapointing

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone who likes listening to hand to hand combat with graphic display

Has Viking Tomorrow turned you off from other books in this genre?

No - I like this genre, but I like reading books that have a plan, other than describing new monsters and how to kill them

What about Jeffrey Kafer’s performance did you like?

Steady

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Viking Tomorrow?

WAY too much time spent in fights, without a strategy for the end game

Any additional comments?

I know Jeremy Robinson has many fans. I read a number of his previous books, but stopped listening to them or reading them because I found there was little "plot" and they were mostly descriptions of battles with various creatures. I was hoping this one would be different since it has a co-author, but it wasn't.

Post Apocalyptic Vikings Save Humanity

Or try to anyway
The world has fallen and the remaining few
People fight to recover/survive.
Mr. Gilmore and Mr. Robinson have put together a good story.
Mr. Kafer..... Once again excellent work. I do
Think that I’d listen to him read the phone book, the white pages even...

A great twist on the post-apocalyptic tale!

Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour have created a fantastic post-apocalyptic environment in this fast paced, action packed story. I very much enjoyed the mix of ancient and modern world technologies and how the characters interact with each new situation they encounter.

Robinson and Gilmour do an awesome job with the characters, providing solid back stories, individual values and interest amongst the group.

I am very much looking forward to the follow up book.

My thanks to the author/narrator/publisher for providing me a copy of this book, free of charge, in return for an unbiased review.

A Blast of a Book

Most of the time a synopsis by the authors is 100 times better than anything I can write. Viking Tomorrow was definitely one of those books: "The world is barely holding on. A century after a series of apocalyptic events, humanity is struggling to survive. In the frigid north of Scandinavia, people have returned to farming, fishing, and fighting amongst themselves, living as their ancient Viking ancestors once did. But their days in the world are numbered. The last tattered remnants of humankind have become barren. No new live births have occurred in over a decade. When the remaining population dies, the human race will end."

This book is action-packed and character driven. Both were written perfectly. I loved the action parts because they made this book absolutely fly by. Seriously I sat down and realized that I'd listened to about half of it without even trying. Most of a Saturday was gone but I didn't regret it. Couple that with really great character building and this book has a chance at being one of my favorite books of 2018.

When you realize that this is still a Jeremy Robinson book -- you'll quickly realize that there will most likely be a creature involved. If you were thinking that and curious, you won't be disappointed.

As with all things Kafer related, Viking Tomorrow was privileged to have him sign on to narrate it. He just adds so much to a story and makes it so enjoyable to listen to.

Good Old Viking Gore and Glory

I was provided this free review copy audio book by the author or narrator at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of: Viking Tomorrow: The Berserker Saga, Book 1 by Kane Gilmour and Jeremy Robinson and narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. I didn’t know what to expect when I started to listen to this book. The premise was slightly different from my usual end of the world stories so I thought I’d give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. The story reaches out and grabs you with good old Viking gore and glory. I listened to it every moment I could. Character development was just right for the story line. And the action and adventure never stopped. Jeffrey made the story come alive in my mind and my opinion is that he was the perfect choice to narrate this story. Now I can’t wait for the next book. You can kind of sort of stop with this book but what fun is there in that!

Vikings!

Great story with the perfect description of a mad Max type world. Great listen that was easy to follow and digest in a short time. Will be checking out more by Robinson and as always Kafer shines and proves why he is one of the gold standards or narration.

I received this audiobook as a gift in exchange for my honest review.

Viking adventure through apocalyptic wastelands

An future apocalyptic wasteland that has erased most of the world's technology and population. It creates a medieval setting with some modern things thrown into it, it is a fun setting for the story plays out. A trek across Europe to save infertility issues plaguing the remaining human population. You get battles with mutates animals, bikers gangs, lack of food and internal conflicts. It is filled with set pieces and battles, if you are a fan of action there is a ton to experience throughout.

The narration by Jeffrey Kafer is very good. He provides lots of unique voices for everyone, and is always great at the heroic characters. He varies all of the voices and personalities well, and has a nice pace at which he reads.

If you are looking for a fast paced viking adventure this will please. What is not to like about a main character that can take on mutate polar bear as a child? The book sets up a future conflict and new places that will be explored, and leaves you interested in what is next. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Vikings star in post-apocalyptic story

This book opens with a fairly common scene, a child left orphaned after a tragedy befalls her parents, but despite us returning to her after she has grown up, this does not become a defining part of the story and is dealt with almost in passing because it isn't as important as the primary quest of our viking heroes.

Many years after some undefined catastrophe has destroyed almost all technology, set the surviving humans back to a more medieval time and left many areas and countries extremely hazardous due to mutated animals, a small group of vikings led by the young woman named Val embark on a quest to find some genetic material that is needed to help ensure the survival of the human race as a whole.

Through the course of this journey, the party is beset by numerous troubles from a shadowy foe who controls various bizarre remnants of humanity to delay or stop our heroes and seemingly has help from a traitor within the party of vikings. This journey is predominantly through Germany and it was an interesting change to hear about places I recognised from there being mentioned in this post-apocalyptic setting.

I hadn't read or heard anything from these authors before this book, but will be looking for further work from them with interest as they had a very good blend of story, characters and world-building that resulted in a compelling start to an interesting series.

The narrator of this book had a pleasant style that nicely enhanced my enjoyment of the book, albeit without maybe providing sufficient distinction between the various characters that appeared in the book.

Hooked from the first chapter!

From the first chapter, I was hooked! I don't want to give anything away, but I really enjoyed the story and I thought Jeffrey Kafer did an amazing job of narrating. I was lost in a very scary (and yet hopeful) post-apoc world for a few days.
