Summary

Sal had woken up with no recollection of the night before a few times, but never like this - in a forest...alone...confused...scared.

She scoured her surroundings, desperate for some clue as to how she’d ended up here. Fragments of conversations and snapshots of memories were all she could scramble together.

But suddenly, none of it mattered.

A stranger.

A warning.

And the hunt is on. 

Now, Sal and her friends are in a battle like no other. Death and terror lurk around every corner. Can they defy the odds and live to fight another day? Or will they fall like so many before?

Is it all a nightmare, or is it for real? One thing is for sure. It’s relentless.

Different

Well, this story is a bit different. I had already read the book but listening to it bought it all to gory life (again!) No end of talent from this author and as usual the narration by Kim Bretton was superb . If you're a fan of horror, you will love this.

brilliant new story

Great new non zombie book from this author. This is very fast paced and some characters don't last very long! the narration is great, love how Kim manages to produce so many accents. I have read this book but the narration really brings it alive.
And I enjoyed the ending!!!!!

Relentless

Oh my goodness what an amazing book and I am soo looking forward to the next one. Christopher Artinian has an amazing imagination (at least I hope it’s his imagination and not writing this from experience) I am never disappointed with any of his books and his narrator must be one of the best as she sucks you into his world with her amazing voice.

Chilling!

Wow, this book was intense, right from the beginning, when the girls wake up confused in the middle of a nightmarish scenario, it gave me the chills. The suspense is steady, with plenty of plot twists and gruesome moments, as the girls try to stay ahead of the 'game', using ingenuity to 'Macgyver' some weapons! I absolutely loved this book, I couldn't put it down, although I was shocked by the ending, but I definately can't wait for the next book. Kim Bretton's narration was superb as always, and a joy to listen to.

Scared the bejeebies out of me

Wow! A whole new direction from what I usually read. Not much of a horror fan other than Zombies but Christopher is one of my favorites so I gave it a whirl. So glad I did! This story has you anticipating what will happen next every second. The scariest part is I can see this happening in real life! Not to give anything away but the ending shocked me. Building up my nerve for Relentless 2. Kim does a fantastic job as usual. You have GOT to give Relentless a shot, either by reading or listening. You will NOT be disappointed.

Fast-paced and intense game of survival!

Relentless (A Survival Horror Story) by Christopher Artinian and narrated by Kim Bretton is a fast-paced tale of cat and mouse that I want more of! This review is going to be minimal due to spoilers. After a night out, Sal and her friends wake up in an unknown place and are immediately thrust into a sick game of survival. It’s go, go, go from start to finish. The ending- it fits but I can see how some might not like it (for the record, I liked it). You’ll get closure for Sal and her friends, but it’s also left open for the next book (can’t wait for that to come to Audible!) Kim did a fanatic job of narrating- great character voices, great pace, and perfect for the intense situation.

I highly recommend this one and while it’s not a new concept, it’s well-written and well-narrated. I was on the edge of my seat for this one and you will be too.

Parental guidance/trigger warnings: Due to spoilers, I will only say things like death and violence. Language used: Fx161, Sx54 (I’m impressed Christopher, didn’t seem that like many)

Survive or Die

Christopher Artinian is one of my favorite authors in the Zombie genre. When I saw that he had written a book in another genre, I knew I had to give it a try. I was not disappointed.

Sal is a young woman who was out having fun with her friends as a celebration of her upcoming wedding. When she wakes up in a forest, totally disoriented and unsure as to what has happened, she is understandably confused. She thinks that her chums are playing a trick on her as part of the celebration. However, a scream of terror soon changes her mind.

I don't want to give away any spoilers, so I won't say more about the plot. You have to experience this terrifying and action-packed story for yourself. I will say that I was hoping for a happier ending, but it is a horror story after all. The writing is wonderful, the pace is extreme, and the obvious horror of the girls' situation is palpable.

I first read this book as an ebook & thoroughly enjoyed it. When the audiobook version became available, I jumped at the chance to listen to it. The narrator, Kim Bretton, is one of my favorite narrators. Her ability to bring each character to life is amazing and you always know who is speaking, even with a three or four way dialogue. Simply amazing!

If you enjoy fast paced thrillers and great storytelling, give this book a try. You won't be disappointed! I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version by the author/narrator/publisher and chose to review it.

Relentless

A very well written story about the real monsters in the world. Good character development made me care about these women. The narration was perfect and brought the different women to life.

Wow! Unexpected, love it!

This is such a thrill ride! It was an unexpected one for sure, but couldn’t stop listening. The narrator is excellent! This story will take you places you don’t know existed in yourself.
I want to tell you all about it but I don’t want to spoil a thing.

Wow!

Ok, some advice...do not start this book unless you can listen to it all at once with no breaks. This story is amazing. I made the mistake of starting it on my lunch break at work. I wanted more! I spent the rest of the day when I got home listening. I highly recommend this book. So awesome!!

Artinian & Bretton you can’t go wrong!

Super fact pace as expected from Artinian!
Loved the girls, loved the action and the twisted surprise ending. Yes it’s a story that’s been told before in a few different ways.... but not like this!
Kim is my favorite female narrator! She is amazing!
