What if you woke up one day and everything you ever knew had gone? The people you encounter want to take everything you have - including your life. The cities you used to visit are reduced to uninhabitable ruins. There is no law and order and no government or organized society. Even worse, you have no recollection of how it got this way. Nor do you know who you are. Your friends and family are nowhere to be found. Are you a hero or a villain? Perhaps a nobody? All you have is a handful of photos of a wife and a daughter you don't remember and the will to live. That is the world before Zed. What would you do?
It is day one in the Wasteland for Zed - the first day in a nightmarish existence he could never have imagined. In every direction he faces hostile and feral survivors. Savage gangs rule the ruined cities and shantytowns, and their brutal leaders rule like feudal lords.
Zed has almost nothing left in the world, yet everyone wants what little remains. He must fight for survival but also try to find answers, to seek an explanation for the catastrophic world he inhabits. Is his family still alive? Is there anyone left who doesn't want to kill him to take what is his?
15 Years Later: Wasteland is a brand-new action-packed sci-fi adventure from the best-selling author of the Battle Earth and Battle Beyond Earth series.

I liked it. The book throws the reader into the middle of a dramatic situation, and then as you progress it starts to share more and more of what's happening with you. What a great way of grabbing your interest!
I like how it starts and the enigma that is Zed
It's a fast paced story and I think the narration captures this well. The narrator does all the hard work for you in this sense and you can sit back and let them sweep you along in the roller coaster ride. A good voice for this book it drew me in.

"Mad max with amnesia"
This audiobook was provided to me by the author narrator or publisher at no cost to me by audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review. Good story a little repetitive in the character interactions...climactic battle seen was good.
"Post Apocalyptic Action/Adventure"
Would definitely recommend to fans of this genre.
Rave really stood out for me. She seemed to have to most growth in the story as a character from when we first meet her.
Neal Arango's performance was quite lively and engaging. He voiced the characters very well, and made them all distinct so I knew who was speaking at all times.
The story was intriguing and filled with just enough mystery that I kept wanting to continue on to the next chapter.
I hope there is more to this story, as I would like to find out more about "the boss".
"Hard to label"
I loved the part of the book where Zed escaped from the prison. The book was well-written and different enough to be interesting. Zed's escape was an example of being exciting and original.
Neal did a very good job of reading the book. The voices were good, but not too far over the top. His voice really became a non-issue which is really what you want from an audiobook. It was like I was reading it. Very well done!

"More "action/thriller" than "survival""
While this book is set in a post-apocalyptical world, I really didn't feel this book is so much about survival (outside of typical fight/war scenes) as much as it is a mystery/action/thriller. Unfortunately... that's not really what I was looking for.
It did have some interesting plot twists and it was surprising at times, but I didn't really feel the plot was that believable and I had a hard time caring about the characters.
The narrator makes such a huge difference in my enjoyment in audio books. (I can't listen to ANYTHING Kevin Pierce reads! ) I was a bit worried at first when I started listening to this book. I was concerned it was going to be over the top like some of the old "Graphic Audio" thrillers, but I really warmed up to this narrator. I'm not sure that he would make my top 5, but I'm looking forward to hearing him read a book that I find more enjoyable to find out. Maybe he could re-record some of Kevin Pierce's work! Haha

"Good story with plenty of action"
This was a very enjoyable listen. The narrator did a good job in his delivery throughout. I always like stories where the main character is a more normal, person who can be related to vs. the ex-Delta Force type character. This one is even more interesting with the amnesia that he has to deal with. I definitely recommend this book if you like the dystopian end of the world genre - with no zombies.

"15 Years Later: Wasteland"
"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."
A dystopian with twists and turns., and a few surprises. Not my favorite, but not too bad.
"Loved the characters"
The author brings the characters to life in this one and the narrator does a good job of delivering it. The storyline is good as well, very detailed imagery. This is what I would imagine a post apocalyptic world would be. I look forward to future books with these characters in this hellish world...
"Pretty good listen"
Got this book free in exchange for un bias review.was a bit hard to follow at first but was worth it. Good characters and plot twist.
"Is there a sequel? Please be a sequel!"
The story. It was packed full of adventure and had a few twists. There are a lot of similar type books in this genre but I thought this was great.
I really liked how the main character wasn't an over the top, cocky, know it all. It made him feel more real.
I don't believe so, but he did an excellent job with this book
I received this title in exchange for an honest review
I just finished the book and thought it was enjoyable. It is a good post-apocalyptic without the zombies. It still has blood and gore and held my interest to find out more with Zed, I would recommend this book. The narrator did a decent job as well.
