Barred from crossing the NorthAm border, Clay McAulay, his AI copilot Gibbons, and their battle mech are forced to flee into the warped and twisted territory of the Midlands. A desolate, dreary landscape filled with denizens of questionable character, the Midlands has the reputation of a place folks want to avoid on their travels.
Few ever enter, almost none ever leave.
Clay is quickly embroiled in a conflict between the townsfolk of Perdition Plains and a mad scientist who may have discovered the secrets to immortality. Clay tries to extricate himself from the volatile situation, but as always, trouble keeps its grip on him, and he is soon fighting against a foe he'd never thought possible: a mech made entirely of dead flesh!

Interesting, unusual and entertaining story. Definitely an unusual and unique story. I have not read the first book in the series but that didn't hinder my enjoyment of this installment. I had no problem following the story line. It can absolutely be listened to as a stand alone book. I would like to go back and read the first book just for the enjoyment of it.
An unusual world that is a mixture of post apocalyptic, old west, futuristic. Full of humor, action and creepiness. A twisted tale that includes ghouls/zombies, rotten meat, a mad scientist and much more. What cast of characters. Of coarse Clay and Gibbons are great characters. The rest are just creepy. Good but creepy.
Run far and fast from any place that has the name perdition in it.
J Scott Bennett did a fantastic job with the narration as usual. Great character voices. Love the voice for Gibbons. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great delivery with the humor in the story. He just has a way of bringing the characters and story to life.

Clay and Gibbons Rock!
I listened to book one and was very happy to find there was a book two. Clay and his AI, Gibbons, are so much fun and the narrator absolutely makes you feel, think and believe!!
Book two picks up where book one leaves off but you don't need book one for this listen to resonate--it can stand on its own. (But get book one. That's where my love affair for Clay and Gibbons began!)
The two road warriors stumble yet again into the crazy that is this new/neo existence. Even though the world and the technology therein is not real to my 2016 sensibilities, the author and narrator combine to bring the machinery to life.
I really enjoy whatever it is that the narrator does to create the vocals for Gibbons. He even ratcheted it up a notch for Gibbons with this listen.
I have to believe that a book three is in the works and I can not wait.
