Joshua Gayou’s vision into a possible future is stacked with layers of relatable characters and events. No zombies or aliens are required in this post-apocalyptic struggle of raw survival - humans can be dark enough all on their own.
RC Bray’s narration is in a class of its own. Every character and every moment just spring to life with his superb delivery.

Abercrombie continues to amaze me with the depth of his characters, their various motivators, and how they all intermingle.
Not for the squeamish reader though.
Pacey is phenomenal and breathes even more colour into the story.

There are some great facets to both the story and the main character, which don’t really reach their full potential. Worthwhile for a casual listen but it didn’t get me properly engaged in the outcome because there are too many layers that don’t get resolved deeply enough.
The narrator is okay but didn’t get the military talk sounding genuine which doesn’t help.

Weak story and characters.

The story telling in this series is much weaker than the Expeditionary Force series. It feels like it’s written for younger readers, but I would say that discerning younger readers would question the plot and character development as much as anyone else.
