Publisher's Summary

Surviving the Swamp 

Skin of Your Teeth Survival is a reality show made famous for pairing part-time survivalists with a real-life survival situation. Always carefully planned out by world-famous Prepper and Survivalist Wolf Henderson, season 10 promises to be different. This time none of the contestants are survivalists. They’ve all been picked to fail. 

But when an EMP hits, the cast scatters and Wolf is left to care for a husband and wife team, a quietly scrappy chick and a bumbling scientist. At the spur of the moment, Wolf offers them safety at his island bug-out location and takes off with his ragtag team to move through the wild and dangerous swampland of Florida. 

The loner of the group, Regan, isn’t sure what to do. She can’t survive on her own, but she also doesn’t work well in a group. She believes she has a better shot in one of the major cities on the coast than in the swamp, so she joins the team with every intent of striking out on her own once the opportunity arises. But with the world around them growing more dangerous every day, she has to figure out whether she’s better off with the group or alone in the post-EMP world. 

And whether Regan or Wolf realize it, the dangerous journey through swampland will soon become a literal fight for survival once they reach the chaos of "civilized" South Florida. 

Surviving the Refuge 

They thought their journey would be over when they reached the island refuge, but life isn’t as simple as what they’d hoped.  

At first glance, Wolf’s home is a prepper’s dream, but there’s a whole new learning curve that comes with living on the island. Regan is frustrated to learn that Wolf’s 12-year-old daughter outmaneuvers her constantly, and more seriously than that, Regan begins to feel like every move she makes is the wrong one — all except with Wolf, that is. 

Even as the group begins to acclimate to the island, Wolf has to stay strong for his team and his daughter. Making it “home” wasn’t the relief he thought it would be. Instead, he finds a whole new range of skills he has to teach the group, and it all has to happen in the face of failing equipment and a quickly approaching storm season. Everywhere he turns, he finds something else going unexpectedly wrong.

Struggling to keep up with the demands of life on an island and as part of a group, Regan finds herself in a rapidly disintegrating situation that causes her to question everything: her survival skills, the integrity of the group, and even the promise of safety they’ve worked so hard to secure. It’s enough to have her considering striking out on her own — even if it means threatening the safety of the team. But when the true threat is revealed, it will burn down everything the team knows — the good and the bad.

Surviving the Elements

Wolf has watched his entire world go up in flames. Now, Regan must help him pick up the pieces if they hope to survive....

After the total disintegration of the island, Regan, Wolf, and the rest of the group decide to return to the one place they’ve called home — the swamp. However, returning isn’t as easy as it seems. The journey across Florida presents a whole new range of horrors as society breaks down, made all the worse when one of their own gets seriously injured. Plus, the team must face the trek with two new members whom some believe don’t belong with them at all. 

With danger and supply shortages at every step, questions are raised whether or not they’re making the best choice in returning.

A Little Bit Different

I have really learned to love the post apocalyptic genre of audio books so I was super excited to get a whole series in one go. I was expecting it to be the same premise of a world gone bad. You know, except for the family that survived along with their close friends, no one else they come across has any good left in them. This series surprised me. Yes, they came across way too many bad people, but they found good people, too. It was refreshing. Another refreshing thing was that the main characters were not perfect. They argued and bickered constantly. The main character, Riley, really annoyed me at the beginning. I really didn’t like her. But, it was fun to listen to her learn and grow as the series progressed. Wolf, the professional survivalist , made plenty of mistakes. And, I liked that. Yes, it was frustrating in the moment, but it makes sense that these people would make bad decisions in these situations and I loved hearing how they fixed their mistakes and learned from them. The series had a very satisfying ending. Being a Florida resident myself, I think I might just start learning how to survive on my own in the swamp now! The narrator was great. Her enunciation was awesome and so was her ability to confer feelings and emotions. My only complaint was that I was constantly losing track of who was talking. The voices were different, but just barely and I got confused quite. But and had to wait for the “Riley said” at the end of a statement. I received this book for free at my request from Audiobook Boom in exchange for my honest review.

I really tried to like it

This book had an interesting premise, and I like the genre, but I just could not finish it. The characters are pretty two dimensional, and while I’ve never lived through an EMP, this just does not seem to be how it would go. I made it through the first two books, And partway through the third but could go no further. What finally made me put it down was the way the 12-year-old girl was portrayed, she sounded like she was in her late teens. All in all just a very unrealistic portrayal, in my opinion, of how such things would go. I was not very impressed with the narration either.

Frustratingly unrealistic!

Another very unrealistic series with the most oblivious, pacifist characters imaginable. Tons and tons of drama centered around very unrealistic scenarios and unrealistic actions by characters.
oh and the narrator does a fine job with one exception that just drives me crazy. it is Wolf, Wolf, not Woof or Wuf. If it was feasible, I would send you a value pack of L's for your next narration venture.
