I cannot help but think that they are now dragging the story out and filling pages with over the top individual internal dialog. When you actually review what actually happened in this book there wasn't much.
I'm still enjoying the story but I think they need to start focusing on ending the story and not hanging around too long and undermining their good work.
Like a terrible TV show, repeats of the previous books and flash backs. The book is written like a script for a TV show, drawn out with nothing being achieved. Leaves a terrible empty feeling.
Having read all of the previous books its clear that the series fluctuates between being amazing and a bit poor. This book in my opinion is better than the previous one but not as good as some of the others. Its hopefully building up for a strong ending as this is fairly close to the last book.
There are some good scenes here and there but generally a lot of filler. The chapters at the end are the best and there is a good action scene at the very end. Still though, its slow paced up to that point and there is so much filler that Alpha team STILL haven't started their mission in Africa.... it feels like three books ago they were getting ready to start it.
The chapters with the battleships fighting were intense and pretty solid, I enjoyed them but they are also excellent examples of how everything in this series kind of just goes wrong several times until it would be nearly impossible to get out of it alive - and then someone will do the impossible and save the day last second.
Overall though, a pretty solid book but not near the standard of some of the previous books.
Writer, reader, now an avid listener, why hadn't I discovered this before!
As far as this series goes, it's pretty awesome. I've breezed through the books just wanting the next, and the next, this one did have a much slower pacing, with some flashbacks, and I think that was okay. It can't all be so fast-paced, we as readers and listener do need a break.
Great work as usual to both writers and of course, the narrator, he's been totally awesome throughout the whole series.
Americans save the British and the world from the evil Russians with Islamic terrorism to blame....original writing? Well maybe if you are a 14 year old boy, which I assume is the intended audience. The repetitive nature of the narrative is getting wearisome. Everything must go horribly wrong in order for the last second act of heroism to succeed. The formula and writing needs to evolve with each book...it hasn't.
This is a good series however we've strayed into what feels like Saturday morning cinema territory with a cliff hanger ending every week. If it's going to be episodic at least end each book.
"Exciting Zombie battles continue with answers"
After reading all 6 titles previously in this series, it was nice to see some answers given, like how, why and where. Excellent. Enthusiastically waiting for the rest of the series.
R.C. Bray is simply my fave narrator, incredible range with the different characters and performance is simply outstanding. Totally enjoyed the performance.
"The masterpiece continues!!!"
Absolutely the best continuation of a story that started out strong and just keeps getting better.
Start with 0.5 and enjoy each after.
"Keeps you on the edge of your seat."
This whole series keeps you on the edge of your seat. I can't wait for the next book to become available.
"This series just keeps getting better"
Unexpected turns in the story kept me hooked.
This story grows on you and your connection continues to grow with the characters. Having several stories going on at the same time in several places makes this an edge of your seat kind of story. I can't wait for the next one!
Narration was top notch. The story ended abruptly and surprised me. Now I have to wait for the next installment.
"Wonderful story just keeps getting better!"
Mike and Glynn keep pushing out great excitement. The stories are Awesome!!! I recommend all the books!
Absolutely brilliant. Thank you. Making the series into a TV show series would be a logistics nightmare but it still needs to be done in my opinion.
"On the edge of my seat
This series has progressed to become the epitome of my idea of surviving an apocalypse. Great research and superb writing. Amazing narrator. Deserves more than 5 stars.
"Awesome as usual!"
RC Bray brings it as always and leaves this truck driver salivating for more! Hurry up dude and git er done!
"Another excellent book in the series"
This series is a excellent series. I'd highly recommend it for its realism (scenario wise) and it's well written plot from the beginning. Go forth and start on book 1 because it's worth it. Anyways on to book 8
