As Rock and Caroline continue their journey with a new companion, they discover their world, which previously seemed so empty, is beginning to feel uncomfortably occupied.
In RazorsCut, Rock and Caroline find themselves among a people seeking purpose in a "post-Wandering" world. And although all cultures have dealt with the horror of The Wandering in different ways and for different reasons, Rock and Caroline soon learn that no matter how many smiles you see, when lies are told eventually the truth must come out.
And when truth is denied with a whisper, it will be revealed with a bang.

I really enjoyed the first two books but this one took a while to get going. The story wasn't as focussed on Rock and Caroline who are the characters I'm interested in. They came into the story more around halfway through. Performance was consistent with the first two and I generally enjoyed that aspect of the book.
"Skipping and singing"
Quite different from the first two books, the story of RazorsCut brings in many new characters. One of the beloved characters die. A new character, Sam, a 12 year old boy brings much more lightheartedness to the story's progression. This book focuses on Roc (sp) and Caroline's entrance into a 3rd land.
I was hooked partway through the first book, but really, none of the books are complete. None of them stand alone. You must read all of them or BIG parts of the plot will not be understood. And some plot points are left unmanaged. I am hoping that they get tied together in later books.
Regarding the audio of the book, the author himself is the performer. And he uses a variety of voices. Kudos. Even MORE fantastic is that he sings a couple of times too. But for some reason, the book skipped backwards a number of times. One time it was two whole chapters back. Most of the time it is between 2-14 seconds. Not sure if was my phone, my Bluetooth headset, or the available audio.
So, star rating less than perfect due to audio quality and loose plot points. Performance is fantastic, the story is captivating.
One suggestion for the author would have been to include your own new swear words. Not the f-bomb or s***. And when the heck to we get to figure out what the "big event" was that began this apocalyptic world?
I'm super antsy for the next book.
I don't know if it's the authors voice or just the story itself but I just couldn't get into it.
This book is written and narrated by the author.He did a good job narrating this audiobook. He also read books 1 & 2. I started with book 3 so I was bit at a loss at the progression of the story.
"Reading Books 1 and 2 are a must"
The story was okay. It was hard for me to follow since I have not read the first two books. I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.
"Great story and narration"
It ranks pretty high up there. I have listened to it twice. And continue to look forward to others
I thought this was a well rounded listen. I think the author did a great job narrating the book. Since I jumped into the series at book three I like that I didn't have to read the other two to catch on. In my mind those are great books. Thank you for the share.

Like some of the other reviewers, I started this book without having read the previous two books. Consequently, I'm pretty much lost as far as the plot goes. The author/narrator tries to give his characters different voices, with varying degrees of success. I doubt I'll finish this book.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
"The Story Continues."
I jumped into this series with this book so I really did not get the jest of it right off. But, as it progresses, things become a little clearer. If you plan on reading this or listening like I did, find the first 2 books and listen to them first. After I did that, this one fell right into place.
The author and narrator are one in the same. He did a really good job narrating for this being his 3rd book. He also read books 1 & 2. The lay of the land is described so that you feel that you are there with the characters as the story progresses.
It was a good read and I would recommend this book to all I meet.

Troy Hollowell did a great job narrating. This Book is full of Adventures as the others.
"Interesting story line"
This was the 1st time listening to this writer and I enjoyed the book.
Needs a new narrator.
