Not bad, but not really part of the series

As zombie books go, this is an okay one, and if I had wanted a zombie book, then I'd have no real complaints. Trouble is, this book is touted as the third book in the Threshold Series. This book has very little to do with the previous books, other than a tenuous link to creatures from the previous books. In my opinion, this should've been a standalone book. After all, in 14 and Fold, he spent time building characters into a team to fight these monsters. There is no mention of them in this book. I feel a bit ripped off and let down.

Good story, bad narrator.

I have listened to all of Mr. Blackmore's books and have enjoyed them all. This one, however, was different. I liked the story itself, but the narrator's speech patterns were annoying. In fact, I nearly stopped listening after the first ten minutes. Because I've liked all Blackmore's previous books, I did stick with it, though. After a while, I became more used to the narrator's poor reading style. If this had been read by someone like R.C. Bray, it would be five stars all around. My advice is, even if you find the narrator as annoying as I did, stick with it. The book is worth putting up with his poor reading.

Great book!

I love D.J. Molles books, and this is probably one of the best. It has a real Stephen King vibe to it and is masterfully written. Loved it!

A great book.

I really enjoyed this audiobook, it had action, pace, and kept me riveted. It does bear a striking resemblance to Star Wars, and the character Tyrus Rechs could be Roland Deschain from the Dark Tower series. All in all, very entertaining.

I knew nothing about this author, but I'm glad I gave this book a try. It's what a good apocalypse book should be.

I've never been a big fan of fantasy but this series is amazing! I hope the author does another book in the series because I feel it still has legs for another book. I cannot recommend this series more highly.

I have read everything by this author, and while this book was entertaining, by halfway through the ending was clear. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book but I can't help but feel it's time to retire Robert Langdon.

I wouldn't normally go for a werewolf book, but I like this author, so I gave it a go. I'm glad I did. This book takes the classic werewolf story in a new direction. Loved it. :)

Great opener to a new series

I've read everything by D.J. Molles, and this book is just as good as all his others. He is incredibly good at creating realistic characters and environments. The dystopic worlds he creates are believable and enthralling. Great work.

good, but short

This was a good book, but too short to warrant being a stand-alone audio book.
