Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Maberry's thrilling Relentless, Rogue Team International joins Joe Ledger in a new hunt that spans the globe and journeys deep into the terrifying landscape of the human heart.

Joe Ledger’s world has been torn apart. The people closest to him have been savagely murdered, and Ledger is on the hunt for the killers. His already fragile psyche has cracked apart, allowing a dangerous darkness to overwhelm him.

His hunt takes him deep into the world of the deadly black-market weapons sales, and standing in his way are a new generation of private military contractors. These mercenaries have been enhanced with cutting-edge cybernetics and chemical enhancements, transforming them into real-world super soldiers. Stronger, faster, harder to hurt, and fitted with built-in weapons. They are beyond anything Joe has ever faced.

But he is not the Joe Ledger they expected to fight. He is defined by the Darkness now. The attempt to destroy him - to break him - has backfired. Instead his enemies have turned him into a far more fearsome weapon.

Everyone is out for blood.

So Damned Amazing

Hoo Ahh! Joe Ledger returns with The Darkness, to take the hunt for Kuga and Santoro and bringing the death and pain to anyone who aligned with them. Joe, in all his fractured spirit and soul, is ready for blood. I loved this book so much, now with Ray Porter's amazing voice bringing this book to life, and it makes it feel so much more real, like you hear the pain and hurt in Ray's voice like the entire story is a full reflection of Joe's heart as it is right after losing his family. 10/10 a very welcome and loved continuation of The Joe Ledger universe and of the book Rage

Joe ledger goes woke

I'm tired of everything having a political undertones. These book used to be pretty good but I'm done with them at this point.

What Happened to Jonathan Maberry?

Never in a million years did I think I would ever type this. I am a MASSIVE Joe Ledger fan, and a Jonathan Maberry Fan. This audiobook is so so so so so boring. I could not believe it, it drags on and on and on. What is up Jonathan, maybe COVID isolation affected your creativity, I don't know. I pray the new books are back on track, as I always buy Joe Ledger books the second they are available and can't wait to listen......This one was just too painful to get through.....

Disappointed

Although all of the Ledger books have political overtones this one was just a blatant podium for left wing propaganda.

The story had some potential with the revenge motif. But, how the help did Bolton and Santoro escape from the Black Site prison.

So many disappointing things in this book. I have been on board since book one. I will buy the next one but, if it's anything like this one it will be my last.

Wait if you like resolution.

While this may be the longest book in the series this book is too short. 1/4 to 1/3 of the book is used to set up some future battle. Only about half of the plot points are in resolved. All of the “big bads” are paper tigers that cause no damage to “Marty Stu”.

Once my favorite author now not so much

Up to this installment, I would have called this my favorite series hands down. While it not not be a big deal to most, Maberry has taken to using outdated harmful references to autism as well as combining autistic with faggot for a groovy new insult. WTHF? Disappointment doesn't come close to expressing myself on his latest piece of work. I'll finish the book only to get a total on spectrum disparagement then I'm returning it.

Too dark, lame story

I normally am a huge fan of Mayberry, and loved all of the Joe Ledger books.... except this one the story line was lame , same ole same ole, characters were bland and boring , but the HUGE problem was how dark it was, extremely DARK , and as good as Ray Porter is he seemed bored narrating it. I do believe this will be my last Joe Ledger book , and that’s sad because it had a lot of potential of going on and on.

One of the Best Ledger Books.

I read them all. I feel Jonathan is just getting started. My wish list includes a stand-alone novel about Church who deserves his own series.

Stellar

Another fantastic book... Dark, bloody, worrisome, and perfect. I listened to it while recovering from surgery in the hospital and freaked a few nurses out in parts lol... But a bloody good (even if heart-rending) story and closure to some open loops.

Maberry... Keep that damn dog safe and alive forever or I'll hunt you down. I mean it.

Decent enough yarn but excruciatingly long-winded

I'm determined to get to the end, but it's hard work. The story itself isn't without interest, but there're at least twice as many words as there need to be, so there's no pace and far too much padding. You get a little action or some significant plot, and then yet another longueur. Honestly, on the whole, it's just boring.

I've long since lost interest, but the app says there's another eight hours to go...!

Consistently awesome

Hard to do this justice without any spoilers. Threads that have been developing for years are coming together, characters I love threatened, characters I love to hate getting theirs, a character exit rivalling the best one in Indiana Jones (you’ll know it when you read it). Can’t recommend this series highly enough. Narration, as ever perfect from Ray Porter, gives characters real identity with subtle accents and mannerisms that never take you out of the moment.
If you haven’t listened to this series, then grab Patient Zero, I envy what you’ve got coming :) if you’ve gotten as far as relentless, then this is what you’ve been waiting for since ‘that Christmas’ and you’re buying it anyway!

Brilliant edition to the Joe Ledger world

Being a long term fan of both Jonathan Maberry and his brilliant creation Joe Ledger I have be waiting with baited breath for the new chapter in the series, and to say I was not disappointed would be a huge understatement - a excellent fast moving story that doesn't skimp on outstanding characters and nail bitting situations, would recommend to anyone who likes action stories with characters that aren't cardboard cutouts but are sculpted to be interesting, a great story.

worth waiting for!

This newest book in this series did not disappoint. I found myself trying to eek out the length of it by not listening too long at once but it just made me think about listening to it until I picked it up again.
The action is literally non stop. The characters are everything you want them to be...fun and super tough for me. I loved the story and no doubt I will listen again very soon but I'm now eagerly waiting for the next!

A exploration of the darkner side of Ledger!

With the pace of a thriller this book has a distinct and different feel to previous books.
With the narration of Ray Porter bringing emotion and compassion in the darkest of plots.
Definitely one of the best in series.

A full on ride

This has to be the best book so far, Ray porter is Joe ledger and reads him perfectly. Jonathan Maberry's writing and story telling is as close to perfect as you can get if you have followed the last few books then this is grate set up for even more excitement too come and I can't wait for the next. I'd recommend this and the rest of the books to anyone buy the book !
