Summary

Battle plans never survive first contact with the enemy....

John Eric Carver and Shrek, a retired SEAL war dog team, have created a safe haven in the high mountain desert. The remote former Boy Scout Camp seems perfect, with enough water and stored food to last years. Everything is in place to ride out the viral storm that is consuming the world. 

Off the California coast, an aircraft carrier strike group carrying nearly 15,000 souls seeks refuge. There is talk of moving to an isolated island, untouched by the infected. That changes when they are given new orders to retake Los Angeles from the Variant hordes. 

Survival will require courage and commitment. But most of all, it will demand sacrifice. Both groups thought they had escaped the apocalypse, but they are about to find out how wrong they are.

Incredible story!

I absolutely love this story. The tale is so gripping I find my anxiety level rising as the plot thickens. I want more.

Excellent

I sure hope there is a third book! These are fantastic stories and I have fallen in love with Shrek. Great work to the author. This is one of my favorite Extinction Cycle spin offs and Bronson Pinchot is great!

Great addition to the Extinction Cycle World!

If you love extinction cycle by Nicholas Sansbury Smith you will love this, if you haven’t read that yet this is a great addition to that world and you better be prepared to read both as the story backbone lies in Nicholas’s world which gives you an even better picture of everything all told together. This series gives us the story of Shrek and his handler, John Carver. Shrek is a war dog partnered with John, both were a SEAL team before they retired together. Since retirement John got a farm with room for Shrek to run and hunt while helping out with a Boy Scouts camp in Lost Valley.

When the apocalypse started John and Shrek join the camp counselors and some scouts and their families. This sequel divides between John and Shrek at the camp and the Camp director, Jen who happened to be visiting her naval boyfriend when the shit hit the fan. You also get the views of some marines and another SEAL who happens to be friends with Carver who get to be part of one of the major battles in Extinction Cycle. There is tons of action and you can see the pieces moving to bring us to a finale that’s very satisfying. While the tale could end here, there is plenty left to be said and a sting left that lets us know there is more to come for our heroes. Great read, well worth the credit.

Excellent wrap up to this two book series

I enjoyed finding out what happened to the likable characters from the first book. I believe it would be best to listen to that first book, Lost Valley, before listening to Satan's Gate. Otherwise you probably would not enjoy this book as much. All the Lost Valley characters are in Satan's Gate, plus we meet some new and likable characters. The action moves back and forth from Los Angelos to the boy scout camp. The variants, otherwise know as the Zombies, are over running the entire country. Their numbers are massive and they are quick and cunning. The coyotes have also thrown in their lot with the variants as they also become infected. Shrek, the war dog, and Cyclops, the infected coyote, finally meet for an epic battle. The ending is satisfying.

Bronson Pinchot does a better job narrating this book than he did in Lost Valley, but he is still not as good as I usually find him in other books. His voice is just too harsh and unnecessarily loud and mean at times when he performs one of the SEALS or Marines.
