Publisher's Summary

Dick, AKA Devil Dog's world changes drastically when the EMP takes out the power grid. The loss of electricity brings out the darker side of human nature across the city. A homeless Marine veteran living in the abandoned tunnels beneath Chicago, he's far better prepared than most people. Good folk have survived, but they are often outnumbered and outgunned. Only the tunnels provide the safety he needs.

Devil Dog becomes the reluctant savior of women and children from the worst of the gangs that now rule topside. Doing the right thing makes him new enemies, driving him ever deeper into the tunnels that keep his charges safe - until he runs across a young woman who might be his daughter.

    "Too much unnecessary profanity"

    I enjoyed the basic idea of this book and enjoyed The narration – although character performance would have been nice – but why all of the gratuitous and excessive profanity? Guess some people think that's necessary to be cool. How very sad ...

    "Compelling"
    Where does Devil Dog rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the top 10.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil Dog?

    I dont recall a specific moment or moments. The story is rather unique in the post-apocalyptic genre. Kevin Pierce is a great choice in narrator for this story.


    What does Kevin Pierce bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good narrator is always the difference between a good and bad listening experience. In this example, Kevin Pierce was a good choice.


    Any additional comments?

    This story is overall really good. Most authors chose to use either a law enforcement or military background as their primary character. Many times that idea can be over played, but in this case, the author sets up the story differently. As the story continues in the subsequent continuations, its a very compelling story. This story has a very down to earth feel to it. I'm very happy with this story and I have enjoyed the continuations and look forward to the story continuing.

    Story
    "Just what I needed!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. So often in PA books the hero is perfect at everything. That gets a little old after awhile. The "hero" in this book wasn't perfect, he was a flawed man doing the best he could under the circumstances. His flaw made him more real to me and you will find Devil Dog to be a guy that you are cheering for.

    My complaint is one I often make with books under 10 hours - it was too short! As a avid reader/listener I can fly through books like this - especially ones that I lose myself in. I was provided this book in exchange for a review. Mr. Craven if you see this, thanks for the listen, great book BUT please write longer ones so I can get a few more hours of enjoyment please!!

    "Action Suspense and the Apocalypse"

    This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks Audiobook Boom.

    I really enjoyed this story! Alas, it has no zombies, an EMP has brought the world as we know it to a sudden stop. It's how one man copes with his changed world. It well written and narrated and this book could definitely become a series. Bonus? The story gave great survival tips, what more could you ask for?

    "Kevin Pierce strike again."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Devil Dog to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of Devil Dog.


    What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

    Kevin Pierce’s performance was flawless as always.


    Who was the most memorable character of Devil Dog and why?

    The main character Dick A.K.A the Devil Dog. I found that some of the most emotional scenes of the book were the parts when he kept mistaking people for his wife and daughter.


    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBlast dot com.

    Story
    "The Devil Dog is Back"

    in action! Dick was crazy long before the EMP hit. PTSD and drug abuse had messed with his mind in a way even the end of the world can't touch. What does get his attention is all of the abuse around him after the apocalypse and how no one is willing to look out for the ones who can't help themselves. So he does something about it and makes everyone else sit up and take notice. What the bad guys don't know is that the Devil Dog will only stop trying when he's dead. Or they are. He wants to clean up Chicago in a hurry so he can be on his way to finding his daughter who he sees everywhere and in everybody.

    This was not a prepper story, at least in this first installment, in the traditional sense of a prepper novel. It's a story of survival and a cautionary tale about what can happen if everybody is out for number one and willing to look the other way when bad things are going on. There are not many neat tricks to prepare for when the bad days come but there is a lot of weaponry and kicking butt to get Dick's point across. There are plenty of surveillance tricks as well. I liked it. I liked Dick. I liked him enough to put the rest of the series in my wish list for later.

    Kevin Pierce is a perfect narrator for this material and I always enjoy listening to his voice tell the story. He is one of the greats and I try to listen to anything he does. He's that good.

    I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
