Publisher's Summary

There Is No Rest For The Wretched....

After nearly being wiped out, the remnants of the U.S. Military launch a daring mission against the Reapers. If it works, it could destroy millions of Reapers in an instant. But if it fails, then the Reapers dominance could grow even more.

A new group arises from the shadows, one which operates under a simple mantra: Join us or die.

Meanwhile, a single Reaper commander pursues a personal vendetta as he hunts former police officer Malcolm Foster.

As Foster and his group are being hunted, he fights to keep his friends alive and to find a safe haven from the growing number of Reaper hordes.

As the battle lines begin to form, there is no chance for diplomacy or peace and the future is anything but certain. Can Foster and his group find a way to survive?

Great series with outstanding narration

Wretched Retribution, the third book in The Wretched series, is a non-stop action-packed post-apocalyptic thriller. The tension and heat are turned up high in this exciting installment. The military, with its limited resources, is desperate for a successful mission. The Reapers are discovering new abilities giving them an added advantage. For Malcolm Foster and the rest of the survivors, nowhere is safe, old and new enemies continue to obstruct their path.

Foster and the group of survivors have reached a new destination, the home of Gregory, Charles's son. The group finds themselves amidst an extremist cult, lead by Ezekiel. He has his congregation believing that the Reapers are saviors. The saviors are a pack of territorial Reapers, patrolling the town from non-cult members. The connection between the Reapers alpha and the cult leader is more than meets the eye. To remain safe, survivors must find a way out of the undesirable town. Meanwhile, Foster is still being hunted by Berks, the megalomaniac alpha of red-caped Reapers and his soldier.

Brian Callanan does an exceptional job capturing the nuances of personalities and emotions of the characters. I'm floored by his ability to perform a wide range of accents and distinguishing tones. His inflections and timing during the battle scenes are excellent, giving a real edge to the story. I thoroughly enjoyed his performance.

This was a satisfying post-apocalyptic story, fast-paced with quality plot and character development. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Good series

I love comic books, zombies and all things apocalyptic. Because of this I can suspend my expectation for things to make sense.... but I still can’t get past some of the discrepancies in the intelligence and lack there of when it comes to the reapers. In this one there’s also the stupid humans in the ‘cult’ of stupid! Lol
Our main group of heroes are well written and pretty clever, also likable and enjoyable.
It’s a great series but again think evil comic book villain when it comes to the reaper leaders or alphas.
Narration by Brian Callanan is excellent just like it was in the other 2.

I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.

Interesting story but cartoonish villains

I like the general story, and the characters are reasonably well done. My only real complaint is that the villains of the story just seem almost cartoonish. I understand that when the author gives the villains superhuman strength and speed, plus the ability to heal quickly, something must be taken away to balance the scales. But these villains have lost so much intelligence that they turn comical, which takes away from the sense of fear and dread.

I think there are many good things about the series...I like the teamwork in the main group, and like the pace of the story.

The skills of Brian Callanan seem to really bring the story together.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a fair review.

Writing Leaning toward cheesy

This next book in the series makes me wonder why I stuck with this series. The MC and fellow survivors are likable, but the Reapers are beginning to wear on me. The way the Reapers talk like knights in the dark age is ridiculous. But I hung in there UNTIL the new President invites a lowly seaman to a high security meeting because she overheard the seaman talking about her. Just utterly ridiculous. This story is taking a non listenable turn.....no more for me.
