Great post-apocalyptic book! Almost biblically apocalyptic! I couldn't put this book down! The end of the world came on Halloween night! Instead of the typical zombie story, the Treaters are demonic beings that want to rid the planet of life. Jaz, a retired Marine, and Jennifer, a waitress, and Tray, the dog, set off to find a safe place to live out the end of days. As with any great post-apocalyptic story, the dog plays a very important part. There is no better companion to have that would do anything to protect it's human! There's a bit of romance in the story between Jaz and Jennifer, but nothing inappropriate for a younger reader. I won't ruin the ending, but it was a twist I didn't see coming! I can't wait for book 2! This is the second series I've enjoyed by CJ Ruherford. Great author with a great imagination. Michael and Kelly Ables are new to me. I really enjoyed their narration, especially Michael. He expresses the emotions beautifully!

Treaters is an end of the world novel that makes you happy the gates of hell haven't opened. Survival horror is a new genre for me, and I like it. I have long been into apocalyptic stories and settings, but I really enjoyed the horror aspect a lot.
This is only the first book in what looks to be either a trilogy or a series. And it centers on two survivors who make their way with a lovable pooch, finding love in hope in the darkest of places. I know Rutherford is a newer writer, but he never comes across like a novice. Go read his Neverwar trilogy and see what I mean. Treaters is a descent into despair and terror as you try to survive in a world populated by demons out for your heart, blood, and soul. Jaz and Jennifer are likable characters, and you will feel everything that they feel as they make their way in the world.
The book does end on one heck of a cliffhanger, but then, this is a series so no worries. My only issue, and it is a small one is the flipping of narration. I really prefer just one person to do a book, and they can do all the voices from each gender. Having two narrators distracted me a little at first, but I got used to it. The Ables do work well together, and they are seamless in the transitions.
Treaters really looks to be a great start to an exciting series. I cannot wait for the next one to come out so that I can find out what happened after the end of this book!!!

This book caught my eye as it seemed to have an interesting cover art. Then the other reviews made my mind to buy this gem. I have not regretted it.
I'm not going in to details but both the story and the Ables voice acting is magnificent. The backstory bits that i usually find boring had me gripped and in some instances nearly in tears.
Buy this book, you will not regret it!
