The legendary range wars of the early American West were brutal, bloody affairs. Water was often an excuse for the skirmishes, but rarely was it the true root of conflict. Political competition, an unquenchable thirst for power, and poor communications were the real catalysts for these violent struggles. In the post-apocalyptic world of Bishop and Terri, circumstances are ripe for history to repeat. Electricity replaces water as the point of contention, the new world on the brink of falling into violent chaos, just like in the past. The issues run in tandem, human nature apparently unchanged in 200 years. Join the citizens of post-collapse West Texas as they struggle to rebuild and improve their lives. It's a journey filled with the joy of success and fraught with the peril of defeat.

Please have some consistency!!
I want to first say that I really like where this story has gone in books 2,3,4. The characters and storyline where excellent, and I highly recommend those books to everyone.
With that being said this series has been all over the place. The first book and narrator were horrible. As stated above the next 3 books were great and the narrators did a good job. Then this turd. The story although not as good as the previous 2 books is ok, my problem lies mainly with the bad narration and crappy production values. The 'tele-type' sound effects are beyond annoying.
My biggest issue lies is in the lack of consistency this series has had. If you look at all the books in this series they all have different narrators. Now that can be ok, but then keep the production side of things the same. Listening to this book felt like I was listening to an entirely different series then the last 3 books. And compared to the last book this narrator sucked bad.
After getting through books 2,3,4 in about a week I was looking forward to this one, but am disappointed. I wouldn't tell anyone who have already invested in the other books in the series not to get it, but I think you will see what I am saying after the first hour or so.
If I can make a plea to all the authors and/or publishing companies out there in control of getting these books made in audio format, it's to please understand that book series that are as linear as this one need to have the same narrator throughout. If I could compare it to movies, this is akin to having a different actor play Frodo in each Lord of the Rings movies.
Joe Nobody you have a lot of promise with your stories but if you don't have someone who can give your books the performance they need people won't buy them.

Narrator ruins the story
as with all of the books in this series, the narrator ruins this book. he makes everyone sound either excited as a 5 year old kid or like whining brats. It is painful to listen to. However I like Bishop and Terri' adventures
