I have been accused of disliking books, simply for their length. This soon to be classic, is an example of how to write an 18 hour book and keep my interest. It is full of characters who we grow with. The characters include both genders and even different age groups. The demons are scary and almost invincible. Zombie lovers should like these bad guys. This is my second read and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. It is entertaining from start to finish.

This starts out like a western, but ends up more like Dune. It is an apocalyptic story. that some might compare to Revelations in the Bible. Preppers should like the message about taking charge and not cowering and accepting. I have a reputation for liking the sophomoric, but this does not fit that category, this is an intellectual adventure. When enough time has past this will be considered a classic.

Bradbury does a great job narrating.

The novel is amazing granted a few things, first the character set up is at least 35-40% of this story. The writer does a great job showing their development vs telling it via reflection, you can see the characters growing. Secondly, this book is intended to be one of several, because of that there seems to be a lot of minor loose ends. All of that aside, I think the novel was amazing. Very well thought out, structured and executed. Amazing character development and over all interesting. It kept my attention from the very beginning. Now for the narration, originally I thought Pete Bradbury was going to be too dry to endure. Surprisingly this novel suits him allowing him to show case his control over his voice. However, there are few times where knowing who is speaking can become problem. Overall, the novel is very pleasing and highly suggested.
