Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new series spanning worlds and ages. A war is raging between gods and demons, with an unstoppable interdimensional terror - THE BLEED - destroying everything it touches. From ancient alien civilisations through to modern day London, through to deep space and beyond, nothing and no one is safe. The Bleed wants flesh. It wants to destroy life. It wants to be worshipped.   

London: next week.
The Bleed strains at the edges of reality, and God has come to help Earth make a stand against the demons from beyond, but it's going to come down to one frightened kid to save the entire planet from a blood-soaked fate.    

The moon: sometime in the future.
A covert mission to colonize the moon is Earth's last chance. The mission is going well, until the brand-new technology used to operate the colony begins failing mysteriously. Will the survivors of Earth's civil war be caught up in a larger conflict they couldn't ever know anything about?   

Another world: another time.
The gods of this world left to fight the Bleed. The war raged on the horizon, at the very edge of this reality. One morning there are screams at the shore and the red tide arrives. The war against the monsters of the Bleed is no longer forgotten history, it's happening now.  

It Always Bleeds Through. Three Worlds. Three Authors. The Mother of All Apocalypses.

Amazing

I'm not even sure where to start with this review, this story is nonstop action from beginning to end. If you're familiar with Philbrook, Tufo and Moody this falls right in line with their writing styles, but the collaboration is something truly beautiful. The biggest suprise was Scott Aiello. I'm not sure how he does it, but his narrating is something of pure magic. The way he alters his voice for each charecter makes it hard to believe that he's the only one narrating. Ok, the story (without spoilers)...God's, but not in the sense you may be used to. The God's are a race who have strengths, weaknesses and agendas. They are all preparing for The Bleed, which is telltale sign that they are losing the war with the demons. The story is split into three sections. You follow characters on the moon (Fuck you Sandra) as they flee a failing station. You will follow two half-gods as they track down the secrets of their mother and you will follow Jenny as she makes first contact with a God. Every story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Waiting for P2 and P3 till 2021 is gonna be torture.

I'm hooked like a freshly born crack baby!

I loved it. Short introduction narration bit was slightly tedious, but everything else was awesome!

Very disappointed in this book

Book was very slow and all over the place. Couldn't even finish it because it couldn't hold my attention.

Great story and very strong character performance!

I've listened to a number of Tufo's books. I'm trying to take anything away from the other narrators performances, but this one truly sold the story, for me. Thanks to all the writers and everyone that had a part in this book...I'm on pins and needles for the next one now

Everything I hoped for and more

This book is fantastic. It has multiple layers and the characters are JUST like people you know in real life. The excitement doesn’t just end with a good guy or bad guy winning! I will wait IMPATIENTLY for the next one!! Scott Aiello’s performance is flawless and makes the story INCREDIBLY realistic!!! DARN great all around!

Story is all over the place

Loved Scott Aiello's Narration but the story is all over the place. I always felt like I was missing chapters. Seems the books written by three people who shuffled there parts like a deck of cards

Dreadful accents ruined fantastic book.

The English accents are dreadful, they made it hard to listen to this book. It would be a 5 star but the narrator when trying to speak in an English voice is comically bad. The story is great & very entertaining. But the accents really bring you out of it, making you hate parts.

Performance carried the book

so far this is fine. Some things are seemingly random at the moment but may connect or make sense later in the story. There isn't likely much that will wow you reading this, but it's a fun story that is performed very well. Although one of the bad guys does sound like bargain basement Bane (that could be good or bad).

oh gosh the accents

ok first I must confess I'm only 15 minutes in, second that I was that madman on the 15.55 Sutton train from Victoria (London) that burst out laughing for no apparent reason. the reason is the accents, honestly the world the authors were spinning was such an awesome image of my city that I love and work in but when the narrator spoke in character, that's when I couldn't help but bust out laughing. the most exaggerated versions of Oliver twist ain't got nothing on this, I'm just waiting for the character of a boy selling newspapers to appear asking if a passing governor has a spare shilling I'm totally going to finish the book but if it's all set in London with Very British characters it won't be with a straight face..... :)

Great new series!

Two of my favourite authors have come together with a new author to me and written the start of a fabulous new series. I love the characters, the concept and the story. It feels fresh and original but with the great writing and characters of three experienced authors. I can't wait to read David Moody's works now. And of course I can't wait for book two of The Bleed. Good narration if you can ignore the dodgy English accents. They certainly didn't spoil the story for me.
