Small-town Deputy Sheriff A.J. "Jesse" Prieo led a comfortable life with his wife and daughter by his side. All that changed in an instant when genetically engineered creatures - terrifyingly similar to velociraptors - were set loose on an unsuspecting world. In the post-apocalyptic aftermath, pockets of civilization endure, but they are few and far between. Helped by a sword-wielding former radical, a woman of shifting loyalties, and a mysterious lost child, Jesse must do whatever it takes to lay his ghosts to rest and survive long enough to uncover the twisted secrets behind the raptor apocalypse.

Literal Raptor Apocalypse
What I think I enjoyed best about RA Book 1 is that it managed to combine the very popular Zombie and Apocalypse genres with dinosaurs, an all too untouched or commonly poorly handled subject in fiction. Well portrayed and interesting characters in a world described to be clearly imagined in the mind's eye being subjected to a unique and exciting horror, makes Raptor Apocalypse Book 1 the start to a series I am now truly looking forwards to reading through in its entirety. That being said, if you are looking for something with substantial meat to it and much scientific actuality to it, understand, this is a fun, B-movie story written in a serious manner. It has its dark moments and can leave your heart strings tugged at times. Thank you for the enjoyable read and fun start to an adventure Steve R. Yeager!
Being a Canadian, it took me a little while to adjust to Alex Lankford's accent. I took a couple chapters to get it in my mind that his voice fits perfectly in with Raptor Apocalypse because of the region in which the story takes place. He spoke clearly and other than when a character screamed or yelled, I could not find a flaw in his performance. I do not think I have found a performer in an audio book who has mastered the perfect "Noooo!" or scream or yell from a character. Good job Mr. Lankford.
I was happy with the author's ability to take a story like this seriously and although fun, so dark at times as well.
Thank you Steve for the gift of this audio book. I greatly appreciated it and cant wait to either get the books 2 and 3 for my kindle or for the audio books to be produced so I can give them a listen too.
