Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author Bobby Andrews comes a thrilling new tale of a post-apocalyptic world. ISIS has unleashed a weaponized version of the deadly Ebola virus, killing 97% of the world's population. Only the immune and those who hunkered down in remote locations remain.
Through the chaos strides a giant of a man known only as Stryker. He is a former Force Recon Marine, who has lost as much as anyone, but fights to preserve his honor and creed in the face of slave traders and rogue military elements who prey on the innocent. Together with his former drill instructor, Sarge, they struggle to eliminate the remaining evil elements in society, even as the nation's infrastructure crumbles and life becomes considerably more difficult. Together, they care for three young women who survived the plague and attempt to give them lives that are as normal as possible under the circumstances.
Follow along as they travel through a world gone mad, determined to defend the weak and innocent against long odds.

Excellent narration, book was lacking

Would you try another book from Bobby Andrews and/or Kevin Pierce?

Definitely Kevin Pierce, he has proven to be an excellent and consistent narrator.

Bobby Andrews? Not too sure. I have never read anything by Andrews before and, although the book held some promise and portions of it were interesting, it was lacking in substance. If this is the first book in a series, which I suspect it is based on the ending, I might read/listen to book 2 to see if it gets better.


What could Bobby Andrews have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It needed a lot more development. Characters were shallow and relationships between them had little to no chemistry. That alone is hard enough to handle but probably the worst part for me was how little motivation or emotion surrounded every interaction or event in the book. I don't know how to describe it other than a sense that the author had no real direction or intention in the plot until he got there. The primary protagonist is a typical former-military, post apocalyptic stoic and the rest of the book was written...well...just like him.

It was like a great first draft or flushing out of a story without any real meat on the bones; this same, exact story line could have been twice the length with identical milestones but with much more content. I suspect that, based on the fact that Andrews is obviously an otherwise talented novelist, these "fixes" would have made this book a 4 or 5 star listen for me.


Was Stryker worth the listening time?

This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review. I may not have otherwise listened to it because I tend to look for longer books when spending my hard-earned, Audible credits. However, due to this and since it was a pretty short book that did have some redeeming qualities, I enjoyed it enough to not regret the 5 hours spent.
