Different Take in the Apocalyptic Genre

This played out like the typical zombie apocalypse story but without zomibes. Quite frankly I think I would have preferred zombies because the molters were never really explained to my satisfaction. I liked the concept and think there is a lot that can be further explained but they seemed more of a backstory to the overall struggle to survive in the apocalypse story.

As far as the characters went I really didn’t like the main character, Jonah. Dishonorably discharged from the military for drinking and while he has the skills of a trained soldier he wasn’t in long enough for me to believe he was some super survivor. Things seemed to be too convenient for him and it seemed his only real struggle was alcoholic demons which brought out the worst in him. I found myself drawn to more of the other characters in the story over him. I appreciated him growing throughout the story but that is to be expected.

The premise and plot of the story were great. Had some feel of some late night horror movie and I’m totally into those. I just wish there was more substance to this versus the standard apocalypse story. I thought this had a lot of potential that was unrealized. These style stories either focus on the internal human struggle or the external survival in a world of monsters, I don’t think this one did either above and beyond, which is needed to stand out amongst the crowd. I think this was left open for another book so hopefully that one will have more about the molters and answer some of my questions.

The narrator did a fantastic job. I really enjoyed every aspect of his narration especially his deep voice. He had great subtle character voices that really helped bring the story to life. As this was the first time I have listened to him I hope to hear more in the future.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Stars slow then picks up

This book is about 3.5 starts but I rounded up.

It started slow and I didn’t really care about the characters at first. Which is bad for a survival tale, they get a little better but can be kind of annoying.

Molters

I don't like leaving bad reviews. This book is not good. None of the characters are likeable. The only good thing about this book is the narrator. I received this audio book for free through Audiobook Boom for my unbiased review.

A refreshing horror

Molters. A most refreshing vision of horror. Well written, fast paced from beginning to end, and packed with action and suspense.
A great read/listen, my only disapointment with the book is it was over too quickly. I wanted more.
Highly recommend it is good entertainment.

A different kind of apocalypse

This story was different and is a bit sci-fiish. There are references to the molters evolving from something on Earth, although, that is only speculations by the main character, Jonah. He's an ex soldier and when bodies start piling up he takes charge. He's forced to or die. There's a long string of characters in the book and it could almost be divided into two separate books in a series.

The story had a good flow. The narrator matched my thoughts of the main character and it had enough suspense to intrigue me. It also has a fair amount of death. In a situation like Jonah faces death would be unavoidable. I don't normally have problems with character dying anyways but in this case it fits well. There are a few heroic moments for Jonah as he attempts to slay the molters that keep his life on edge.

Overall, I really enjoyed it and would reccomend it to anyone who enjoys zombie/apocalyptic type books and movies.

very 90's horror movie feel

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a very entertaining combination of 90's horror movie premise that make for a unique concept. Part pod people, part Aliens and a dash of zombies. It is really just good, gory fun. As long as you manage expecations, this is a fun listen.

Decent Premise, But With Gaps

I was given this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

There are absolutely elements of this story I enjoy. There is a fairly unique creature species, and it has three distinct classes. In a sense it’s like a bee hive, with numerous workers, a few drones, and a queen. The correlation isn’t exact, but similar enough in respect to percentages in each class.
There are some good action scenes, and the protagonist (Jonah) undergoes a significant change. He matures rapidly out of necessity, and continues along a better path through the conclusion. He goes from entitled to humble and reliable. In this regard I am quite pleased with the book.
The primary shortcoming is the gaps in the story. There are a few pivotal scenes that could have been amazing if they had been developed further. However, they were breezed through in order to rush back to Jonah driving. That is as far as I can explain without spoilers. These gaps give me an unfulfilled feeling about the story, and I considered giving only two stars for the story.
The narration is very good. David Drummond has done a couple hundred audiobooks and is quite skilled at storytelling. He also pronounces German well enough to pass as believable to my ears. Mind you, I don’t speak German but have heard enough to find the reading solid.

Zombie Alien Monsters

This story is an OK spin on the "let's see if we can survive the apocalypse" genre. Some new stuff in that the zombies are probably some kind of alien parasite infesting people.
There is a bit too much character angst at the start only to lose most of them. A fair amount of stupid decisions result in a lot of death, infestation and blood.
I didn't feel a lot of connection to the main character and felt that the writing overall was more of a passive observation than engaged activity. Lots of military descriptions of ordinance and mindset which would be helpful in surviving this type of disaster.

Pod People remake!

In this lightweight horror tale we come across Behemoths, Infectors, and of course Molters. The story reminds me of a cross between Pod People and Alien. Our protagonist Jonah disliked the life he led and the wimpy person he was. As the apocalypse appeared and spread, Jonah transformed himself into a soldier and leader of sorts. Some of the technicals are off and require more study; like the Squad Automatic Rifle (SAR). Did he mean a Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW)? Anyway the story wasn’t too bad. I gave extra credit for a bit of originality. This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
