Jack, Mike and Trip were ripped from their loved ones and thrown into a dangerous world they know nothing about, relentlessly pursued by Night Runners, Zombies and terrifying new creatures known only as Whistlers.

Everything seems to be converging Atlantis. Will Jack, Mike and Trip find what they are looking for in the city? Or will they meet an end that none of them were prepared for?

Lots of action and edge of your seat twists

This is book two in a series. Three men from different worlds (Tripp and Mike are from the same world – well if you know Tripp, they are sorta from the same world …) find themselves thrust into one mysterious world complete with Zombies, Night Runners and Whistlers. Mike and Jack have secrets – secret abilities they don’t want to share in this new world where civilization has also collapsed and there is a dangerous creature lurking behind each brick. Together they head to Atlantis to find answers. Where are they? Why are they here? How can they get back home?

This trio of men is the equivalent of Abbott & Costello or Jerry Lewis & Dean Martin. Tripp is the confused goofy one who annoys Jack (he’s the serious one) and Mike who …. Well, Mike has his own sense of humor-sarcasm thing going on. As a trio, they work perfectly together. Tripp doing yoga moves in the middle of a Night Runner vs Whistler vs Zombie fight with the three guys stuck in the middle … pure entertainment!

The sense of adventure, horror and each of their quirks comes through vividly. Two different writing styles but they weave them together expertly. Although I have not heard/read the first of this series I was still captivated by how they seamlessly wove their story together allowing each of their writing styles and characters to shine through without the clumsy transitions that happens all too often.

Lots of action and edge of your seat twists and turns before they head off to another location. If you are looking for a solid answer to any of the questions, you won’t find it in this one … this is clearly the book that takes them on fact finding missions and more searching.

As usual, Sean Runnette does an excellent job of narrating. With the combination of Tufo, O’Brien and Runnette – there is no way to go wrong!

There were no production issues, everything was clear.

I have been a huge fan of Tufo for the last couple of years and I was hesitant to try this collaborative work. I’m glad I did because I couldn’t stop listening! I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sci-fi, zombies, aliens, Runnette and the authors – Tufo and O’Brien.

Almost Good

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was time well spent because I love Mike and Tripp and Sean Runnette is always a great narrator. However, the book was just a bit boring. Jack is not a character that engages the audience or makes you care about what happens to him. I think Mark Tufo could have done this alone or even with BT being transported with Mike and Tripp. That would have made for a more fun and interesting interaction.


Would you recommend A Shrouded World Book 2: Atlantis to your friends? Why or why not?

I would say no; the book is a bit boring and does not have the great banter I've come to expect from his other books and among the various characters.


What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

Everything! Next to Ray Porter he is my favorite able to fully convey each character.


Did A Shrouded World Book 2: Atlantis inspire you to do anything?

No


Any additional comments?

Worth it only to keep up with the series; but really a boring effort.
