Publisher's Summary

This omnibus edition contains Survival (book 1) and Humanity (book 2) of the After It Happened series.

Survival, book 1:

Set in the UK in the immediate aftermath of a mysterious illness which swept the country and left millions dead, the series follows the trials facing a reluctant hero, Dan, and the group he forms around him. They must battle the elements, find sufficient supplies and equipment to survive, and protect themselves against the most destructive force on the planet: other people.

Banding together those he found along the way, he has to fight to keep them safe.

To keep them alive. To survive.

Humanity, book 2:

The survivors have established a home, but they still have to face the brutality of human nature.

Not only do they have to survive, they must keep their humanity.

    "Very Good Story and Very Enjoyable"

    Okay. First of all, it's narrated by RC Bray, So even if it was a shopping list it would sound spectacular, The story is good as is the character development. The story is realistic, not your usual, unlimited round magazines and indestructible hero's, running on broken legs.

    The only thing that concerns me; is the length - 12hrs 38 mins for 2 books and a chapter or two of book 3 is worrisome. I would love to continue to purchase this series but that is reliant upon the author providing the hours of entertainment per buck. Too many authors now think 4 to 6 hours and only half a story is worth the cost of a full story. Hopefully, this author, will realise what most people want and will endeavour to provide value for money, rather than lose customers due to subjective overpricing.

    Getting back to the books - The storyline is incredibly believable, the characters too seam realistic portrayals and the story moves at a quick pace without the usual dead spots, that whilst necessary, the listeners hate, as they wait for the next installment of the storyline. Can't wait to get Society when it's released. I'm sure this series will prove to be long-lived and eagerly awaited. I don't see the point of detailing the story as it would be pointless only know that it's definitely a Zompoc fans must have.

    As a final point - Well worth the investment and you will not be disappointed with the story or the purchase.

    "Great story, great characters dodgy narration"

    I really enjoyed these two books. The characters are great and it's nice to read a survival story that doesn't include zombies. Unfortunately, the usually good RC Bray was a poor choice for narrator. He reads well but as an American is pretty much completely incapable of reading in an English accent. His Scottish is ropey too and I'm pretty sure he's never even heard a Welsh accent because his attempts at one are laughable. Such a shame because it's easy to forget this is a British story with the constant American accent. And when Bray attempts one of the British accents it is jarring and pulls me out of the story. Ruins the enjoyment somewhat. BUT having said all that, it's still worth listening to for the characters and story. I've bought the next two books on the strength on these two.

    Story
    "Logical Survivors"

    Devon C Ford chose his title well. There's nothing new about the premise, a terrible disease wipes the vast majority of humanity out. But this book isn't about that part and it's all over and forgotten about with breathtaking speed. The characters seem to immediately accept it's pretty much game over for the whole planet and largely get on with things.

    What it is about is a group of survivors trying to build a new society for themselves. They actually get very logical very quickly and the story speaks to the human need for identity and purpose which while the book possibly skirts a lot of the other situational psychology is often overlooked in the genre. There is action, violence and disagreement but there is also a lot about the building of a fledgling society. To me it was very satisfying as a read.

    So what about the narration? Hmm, this is where I hope not too many people read this one because I love RC Bray but I can't quite give him the usual five stars. This is a very English book and I have to say that while he does his usual brilliant job I do think one of the better English narrators might have given the book a little more of a unique local character.

    Finally I note that the publisher / author have decided to combine each pair of books into these Publisher's packs. I say bravo! Shorter books are fine but I think that if you are going to produce a series each book should be a reasonable length. I don't expect every author to match the imperious Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight series at nearly 50 hours per book but 5 or 6 hours would definitely have been too little.

    "LOVE RC BRAY - best Narrator there is "

    The first two books are good. Shame none of the others have been added to Audible. I would almost advise not getting this until the rest are added.

    "After It Happened: Books 1-2"

    The story is right up to my alley and the narrator makes it even better. R.C Bray brings into life a whole cavalcade of post apocalyptic refugees with intriguing stories to be told.

    If you like:
    - Post apocalyptic survival journals
    - Military operations and weaponry
    - Light romance encounters
    ...then this is worthy of checking out!

    "Devon C. Ford and And R.C. Bray did a great job! "
    If you could sum up After It Happened in three words, what would they be?

    Very Enjoyable Read


    What other book might you compare After It Happened to and why?

    DJ Molles’ Remaining series and The Arisen series but without Zombies!


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favorite?

    Being a huge R.C Bray fan, it's hard to say, I liked them all


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

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Finally, a great apocalyptic book series, it’s been a while since I’ve heard a decent one.

    "great story and interesting take on survival"

    this was a great series of books and I will be following up to hear how it plays out. one of the most refreshing parts is that it isn't centered around a "prepper" that was proven right, it takes onto account everyday people forced into extreme situations.
