Ancient future tech, post apocalypse saga....

This narrator is lovely to listen to. The book could have skipped some sections, was slightly predictable in parts, but otherwise was a very creative, easy read. Liked the 'tech magic', would have enjoyed even more of that.

Great value series.

Thought provoking, gripping and suspenseful. However, at times, the storyline was a bit repetitive. the villains are pretty much all the same with similar sinister motives. not enough cursing and more barbaric language imo. The people's vocabulary seems abundant, yet they lack knowledge of the most common tools and weapons. Doesn't make too much sense at times. Having said all that, it does make you think about what would happen if majority of the Earth's population is wiped away and how humanity would survive and rebuild.

A wonderful escape

A very enjoyable escape. Fast paced and well written story. Not particularly complex and not pretentious as some writers tend to be, easy to follow a listen to. Sometimes I like that, and don't want something overly deep and meaningful.
Sean Runnette is his usual superb self, with excellent voices for the characters and generally an outstanding performance.
I highly recommend this series, but make sure you read or listen to "Last Survivors " series first.

Interesting storyline that drags you in.

Interesting storyline and it was great to find out what happened to Bray, William & Kirby.

Felt that the last two to three hours dragged on a little too long.

have they found their castle???

the short back and forth between characters in each chapter helped to flow through the events. crude imagery of a desperate time helped in story immersion. I'm a big fan of this book series and hope the story is revisited... from the beginning maybe, jangos story???

One of the best post-apocalyptic series!

This is a continuation of the original series The Last Survivors. I highly recommend listening to that series first so you'll know more about these characters and the world they live in. I've already enjoyed this series before, but this box set includes an all new short story, book 2.5. I couldn't miss out on more of Kirby, Bray, and William! It felt like a nice reunion with old friends/characters. I always enjoy hearing Sean Runnette's narration! Book 2.5 is most definitely a nice addition to the series! Still sad to see this series had ended, but I look forward to more of what T.W. Piperbrook will write in the future!

Amazing.

When I was looking at the beginning of the original series a review caught my eye about how terrible and nasty the characters were. This person never read past the first few chapters of book 1 in the entire series.

I loved every second of this series and urge anyone thinking about reading it to hurry up and do so. Well written, well performed, satisfying ending that gives you hope for the characters future.

Pleasant surprise

I had not been attracted to this genre previously but glad I gave the author a chance. The characters continue to build throughout along with the story. Really enjoyed being able to buy as a “boxed set” rather than having to chase after the next book in the series.

A fantastic story from the first to the last book.

This series is in my opinion a modern classic! It has been one of my favorite world's to sink into and is full of peril and triumph. The audible version is read nearly perfectly. I feel the inflections and tone used for Kirby's voice to be a little too masculine at times though. This could momentarily be distracting. Not enough to tarnish the overall performance. The story encompasses a vast cast of characters, locales, challenges and twists and turns. The characters evolve and I felt myself invested in their outcomes. insurmountable odds are faced and at times overcome but just as many times we lose good characters to the reality of the world that has been imagined so thoroughly. Though I feel myself wanting more. I still find myself thoroughly satisfied with the conclusion.

WONDERFUL STORY AND NARRATION

I CAN'T HELP BUT THINKING EVERYONE WILL LOVE THIS SERIES. IT CHECKS ALL THE BOXES. EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE POST-APOCALYPTIC STORY LINES, I THINK YOU WILL LOVE THE ELEMENTS IN THIS SERIES. I WASN'T ABLE TO GET THE FIRST BOX SET THAT INTRODUCED THESE CHARACTERS (SURVIVORS BY PIPBROOK), BUT I STILL WAS ABLE TO FULLY ENJOY THIS SERIES. I CANNOT SAY ANYMORE EXCEPT...TRY IT YOU'LL LIKE IT!!!!!

better than the last survivors

I've read all 6 books the last survivors and loved them but The Ruins is another level I'm just in the middle of book 2 and its just fantastic, when I'm not listening to the audio book I'm thinking about it. I really recommend the last survivors but The Ruins is just fantastic.
Hope fully one day I'll be watching all these characters on TV in a series as it would be a great tv series.

Just Brilliant

this amazing collection of books got me through the second lockdown of the pandemic. I got totally lost in a dystopian world with very real characters.
