Summary

Warning: May contain Egyptian gods, werewolves, power armor, and a world-ending apocalypse

A pyramid predating all known cultures appears without warning. Its discovery throws into question everything we know about the origins of mankind.

Inside lies incredible technology, proof of a culture far more advanced than our own. Something dark lurks within, eager to resume a war as old as mankind. When it is unleashed, it heralds the end of our species' reign.

A plague of werewolves spreads across the world. A sunspot larger than anything in recorded history begins to grow. Yet both pale in comparison to the true threat, the evil the werewolves were created to fight.

"It's like Indiana Jones went through the Stargate and ended up in Aliens versus Predator." - One of the author's totally biased friends

This collection gathers No Such Thing As Werewolves, No Mere Zombie, Vampires Don't Sparkle, and The First Ark.

Wow

Surprisingly good twist on the Werewolves's, Vampire's and Zombie origin type books we all no and love. Great set of books, i found it hard to stop listening! Chris Fox has just found a new fan!! Only one thing I would like to moan about...... I personally think a prequel book should be at the start of the series but for some reason its been added to the end. There was a lot of small clues in the three books of how the main character became but waiting until the conclusion of the story to hear this i think was wrong. But all in all 10 out of 10.

Worth a listen if you are a fantasy or sci fi fan.

Slow to get started but builds momentum and is thoroughly enjoyable by the end. You can't take this book too seriously. Remember it is a story and not factual so any lore or characters taken out of history may not be correct but the way they are portrayed in this book really works.

You start listening and think you have made a mistake but the story gets deeper and more involved over time and has you questioning whether the main characters are right or wrong.

The main problem I had with this book is the crigeworthy recaps between the novels. You will understand when you listen. There are a few cheesy lines as well but look past them, this is worth listening to if you are a sci fi and fantasy fan. a

Cliches and hackneyed prose

The plot once it gets going is entertaining, although somewhat linear. The author however seems unable to come up with a single line of original descriptive prose. You can look forward to “hails of bullets” and other similar phrases. The performer does their best, but you can almost hear their soul slowly dissolving as the book progresses.

excellent trilogy. can't wait to hear his others


listened to all 3 books in 4 days straight, while working. can't wait to listen to the 4th book in the set, and will definitely be buying all his other books. the narrator is brilliant to listen to and the author had my imagination racing. excellent, Stargate meets the howling meets Dracula, and they all kick butt with the walking dead!!

Good romp of a tale

If you could sum up Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella in three words, what would they be?

Gives a new look at the werewolf legend however by the end of book 3 I was wishing that you could kill a deathless and a werewolf's a lot more permanently. Don't know f I would get any more in this series as it got a bit samey by the end of the last book

The work of a tortured idiot

This book is terrible, I now realise that one of the reasons that publishers exists is to stop nonsense like this from ever reaching an audience. There are so many poor aspects to this story but I will list a few:

1. The science is rubbish. I know it's science fiction but many of the things in this book are just plan wrong from a scientific point of view. Science fiction writers take the science that exists and project it into the future. This "author" gets most of today's science wrong which just spoils any attempt to project further. From that point everything he writes is just stupid.

2. Why don't we just re-write history in the most stupid way ever?

3. A convoluted plot is not necessarily a clever plot, particularly when the "author" lacks the talent to erm ... WRITE!

4. Some people just aren't meant to be writers. I never thought that this was true till I tortured myself by sitting through this rubbish. Despite the massive volume of work here the writer never seems to get better. The writing style remains poor, annoying, and uninteresting. I went to his website and at the time of this review the "author" is 38 years old and has been writing since he was 6. I think its time he stopped or at least kept his nonsense to himself.

5. What on earth the point of this story anyway? There is more hole than plot in this abject excuse of a story.

6. You don't need to be a scientist to write science fiction, but it helps if you can read and comprehend scientific theory better than a 3 year old.

7. Why are the Egyptian gods white?

8. The writer's tone is annoying, his characters are annoying, the plot is annoying such as it is ... there appears to be nothing worth reading in this story. I can't even use the book as toilet paper or pulp and recycle it since it is an audiobook.

9. I am not a twilight fan, I've never read the books, but I can bet the writer of the twilight saga would wipe the floor with this poor excuse for a writer. You have to have some kind of standard to be a popular author. Fox has none and has the cheek to lambast his betters in this indefensible excuse for a story.

10. Did this guy ever study past primary school? I really can't tell.

11. Why did Audible think it was a good idea to pedal this nonsense to us?

A little different

I bought this because it was a good price for 3 books. Started out a little slow and almost gave up. Glad I stuck with it because once it got going it got great.
The author did a great job with the plot and people. The reader... what to say? I could tell what character he was doing with no problem. Never heard a book read by him, so now I have to see what else he read.
Give this book a shot, I am only about half way through the second book and am enjoying it so very much

A great unexpected series and unique premise.

Where does Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top quarter. I really didn't expect this book to be such a great listen.

What other book might you compare Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella to and why?

If you like series like Adrians Undead Diaries or any of Mark Tufo's books you'll love this.
As a fan of undead fiction then I suggest you give this a chance. Its such an unusual combinations of elements that work perfectly together.

Which scene was your favorite?

When it became clear that Werewolves, a high profile and socially relevant disease and solar flares all had a place in the unfolding zombie apocalypse.

Any additional comments?

I set out listening to this series with a nagging expectation that I was going to return it. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great tale and great performance.Obviously, if you aren't into this style of fiction you wont like it but if you are, I'd suggest giving this one a try and I think you'll be surprised.

You want fun? You got fun! Because...werewolves!

Would you listen to Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella again? Why?

I love the theme of werewolves and zombies. Also, I'm an avid player of a specific RPG chain about werewolves and this feels like a game I've played in for that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't feel I can pick any one character, because it's the composite whole of the series I love. It's a little campy, a lot rompy, full of Indiana Jones hijinks meets Resident Evil. So my favorite character isn't an actual character within the book, but the character of the series- it's just amazingly fun!

Have you listened to any of Ryan Kennard Burke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I'm going to look this fellow up for more work!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I were the type to listen to it in one sitting, I would; but by and large I use audio books to reward myself for doing things that need to get doing- I listen to it to clean, to work out, all sorts of drudgery necessities. This series did accomplish that.

Any additional comments?

I'm not going to say this is the most spot-on, well-composed piece of work ever. It's not. But quite frankly, I don't want something that is so entrenched in layers of meaning and profound depth- and if I do, I'll go log into one of a number of online college courses on literature that are available. What I love, love, LOVE is anything involving shapeshifters. I love Indiana-Jones-style hijinks. I love fighting to save the world. I love RPGs, which this book series feels so very much akin to a chain of RPG books that I play dedicated to that monster type, that it just.. hits so many happy points in my world. I read/listen to audio books to be entertained, to be caught up in a story...and this does it and with a smile on my face. Also, the author is so invested in his readership! I am so impressed. Put it this way- I already had book one and two purchased in my audio library, and I just went ahead and put in the credit to get the full series AGAIN, and I posted about it to my friends on social media (one of which I'm pretty sure has already purchased it). I cannot emphasize it enough- if you want to have fun, a really good enjoyable fun read, get this series. It's like a Snickers bar- it may not be chock full of nutritious value to make you think upon for hours and hours, but it will absolutely make you happy and leave you satisfied and wanting more. SUPPORT THIS AUTHOR! GIVE US MORE!

A wicked fun story!

This is an epic book series that really draws you into to an amazing world of werewolves, zombies, and vampires and the myths behind their creation/existence. But make no mistake this is not you typical mythos about them. This is a well thought out well planned story that grabs you by the throat and keeps you asking for more. If you like books like Monster Hunter then this series is right up your alley. I guarantee it!

Recommend it!

It's hard to recommend this book without giving away all of the surprise plot twists, so I'm going to just say that if you did a mashup of Indiana Jones, Underworld, and Night of the Living Dead, you might come close to capturing the awesomeness that is the Deathless series. It's such a divergence from mainstream, yet hits all of the right buttons. When I was finished listening to the longest audiobook I've ever read, my first thought was, wait, it's over? 40 plus hours of awesome!

Holy Fricken crap!

this is without a doubt a damned treasure waiting for people to find! I hope that this review serves as a map to that very treasure. if you want a story with everything a reader could ever want in an action adventure novel, we'll then, this is your X, and it marks the spot. VERY well done Mr. Fox, very well indeed. The performance of the reading was spot on as well.

Well crafted trilogy.

Chris Fox has done a good job creating a great trilogy. Each book can stand on its own but when compiled into the trilogy as it is, makes it difficult to want to do anything else for two days. The first gives a solid foundation for this trilogy and the next two books are equally as good.
I found it so engrossing that I wanted to blow off my responsibilities. I found Chris's interesting twisting of genres into a completely original story line refreshing. I would have never dreamed that werewolves, zombies and vampires could have been created by Egyptian gods. As crazy as this sounds, Chris makes it work in a very fun way.
Great action, enthralling story telling and plenty of humor sprinkled in. I do not write many reviews but I felt compelled to let people know how good this trilogy is with Chris Fox's writing and Ryan Kennard Burke's reading. These are both talented people that I had not heard of before but I will be looking forward to finding more works from in the future.

Better than Expected

This was a chance taker. I wasn't familiar with the writer on his works. But it was surprisingly good. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I loved this new take on mythological characters. The writing is descriptive and moves along at a great pace. Character wise, there are many but all of them have a central role to play. Some of the plot and twist get you looking forward to the next. While others are see-through glass. All in all I would tell anyone who is looking for something different this is the book for them.
