Dreary Apocalyptic Tale

Kind of a weird book. Several information dumps that will hopefully pay off as the series continues. Unfortunately, the dumps dragged down this entry quite a bit. As others have stated, it does get better towards the end. But, then you get the cliffhanger. The narration was quite good. Recommended half-heartedly.

Awesome Narration

I purchased this book when it first came out and loved the storylines. yes, all of the books in the series. When I noted the Audible version was available on Erica's FB announcement page, I immediately purchased it. The Narrator, Stefan Rudnicki, does a great job! The 2nd book in the series has some of the most memorable parts of the series in my mind. Therefore, as soon as it comes out, I will definitely be hitting play.

Good

At first I felt the performance and story dragged. I guess because of the introductions to the characters of course was probably it but when it all started coming together that’s when the story was keeping you on the edge and yes there is a cliffhanger and you are still left with wtf is happening. I love this authors work I’m glad I wasn’t disappointed. Can’t wait to read or listen to the next audiobook whenever it finally comes out.

Just a tease for free

The story is slow and it doesn’t get anywhere by the end. I downloaded it as part of the free stories and wish the fact it was part of a series I would have liked to know that first. The story is not going anywhere after nine hours and I doubt it will in six hundred.

Bad

I couldn't get past the narration, his voice is terrible and he should not be reading this. I got a whole 5 minutes in and wanted to rip my ears off. And I really wanted to listen to this book.

Not a prepper book

Pushed Through 7 chapters and had to stop. A lot of character history and relationship development through out. Mostly focused on how characters interact with each other and very slow movement through the story. Sorry couldn’t keep my interest. Maybe more interesting to a female audience??

Narrator is AWFUL

I was really interested in this story, but I couldn’t stand the narrator long enough to even finish a chapter. He’s so monotoned! His voice and the way he talks just makes my skin crawl. So I’ve returned the book because I won’t ever be able to stand it. Disappointed! This guy should find a different job!
