I loved the Mountain Man series, have listened to it a few times now. The story and narrator are great and it is easy to relate to Gus and the challenges he faces.
When I read online that there would be no more books in the Mountain Man series I was quite disappointed. Then I saw this book was released and I quickly bought it and listened to it in one day. it didn't let me down, it closed the loop on a lot of back stories and provided the zombie fighting action that I enjoy.
Thank you for writing this book! Please think about writing another Mountain Man book in the future.

When I reached the end of the Mountain Man series it was a bittersweet moment. I'd reached the end of the story of one of the most real-feeling characters of this rather crowded genre. I'd walked with the Mountain Man and his companions through many adventures and like most I felt like I had a friend in Gus. For the most part he was just an ordinary guy doing his kind of best to cope with his world being torn apart and infested with zombies with all the horror that brings.
The slightly odd thing about the original series was that by the time we start with Gus the zombie apocalypse has done its worst and we meet a character who is already through the shock phase and is well into the longer term mental and physical effects of being one of the few survivors.
This new book gives us a chance to walk with Gus again. A slightly younger and less jaundiced Gus but still very much Gus! We get a healthy helping of great Gusisms and lots of Blackmore's trademark zombie horror and pointed dialogue. Gus treats us frequently to his own brand of the coarse male crudeness that we all love him for and naturally with the voice of RC Bray (who else?) bringing it to us all feels right in Gus's dystopian world.
It's a chance to walk with the Mountain Man once more and fill in some of the blanks from the original series. Thanks Mr Blackmore!

Any additional comments?
I loved the Mountain Man book series and this is certainly not a let down.
Once i had finished the original books i was guttered that it had finished so had to buy the prequel straight away. It is a great insight into life before the mountain man and how it all started going wrong for gus. The story line wasn't as great as the original but if your a fan, it really wont matter.
RC bray is also a phenomenal audio book narrator, top draw!

I just love this series I hope Keith can squeeze another one out :) Now I have to listen to the rest of them- AGAIN!!
Great prequel: Thank you so much Keith C. Blackmore for providing another in this fantastic series, this book did not disappoint. Your collaboration with RC Bray brought Gus back to us thanks to both of you. I drive a lot in my job often in remote areas of Australia listening to this book had me checking the rear vision mirrors as I was so enthralled (scared me) it gives great insight into Gus and his coping mechanism later with Captain Morgan. This is PTSD on steroids how any one could keep it together is amazing great prequel to a fantastic series. 4.5 out of 5
