Publisher's Summary

It's the end of oil. We knew it was coming one day. But it happened so fast!

Devlin Quinn turns 16 the same week that a battle in a distant war shuts off the flow of imported petroleum to the US.

Gas runs low, then runs out, and soon the highways are empty.

And then it gets very serious. The grocery store shelves are empty, and people become desperate for food.

Dev is trained to fight-his father made sure of that-but is he trained enough? Smart enough? Tough enough? He is about to find out when people desperate for food flee the burning cities and attack....

Realistic View of Societal Breakdown

I loved this book. I think it is realistic of what might happen, and how fast, if oil production stopped. Makes me look at my "prepper" neighbors differently and wonder if I am built to survive. I liked how each character went into survival mode in their own time and manner.

Decent Story, But Lacking Something

Overall the story was pretty good, but there were a few weaknesses in the storyline and characters. Also, the author is either confused or has never used NVGs (nightvision goggles), because he kept talking about seeing heat signatures with the NVDs, but NVDs see light just below the visual spectrum not thermal...That would require Thermal equipment such as a FLIR!

I'll Give It 5

I liked the story. It has an interesting angle and some of the characters even reminded me of people I know. This author has more books that I recommend others should listen to also.

More great stuff from Lou Cadle

Great first book in the series. I really enjoyed the Gray series, so I’m very pleased that this is going to be just as enjoyable.

not as good as Gray

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It took me a long time to get into this book, and although I have listened to Gray many times I doubt I will be listening to this again any time soon as I was not keen on the narrator.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Slashed?

Without spoiling the story I think about a third of the way through the book it got better and the storyline faster.

Would you be willing to try another one of Cody Roberts’s performances?

no I did not like his style of reading.

Any additional comments?

I like Lou Cadles Gray and thought I would like this too but I was not keen, but I think that might have been down to the narrator.
