Publisher's Summary

Cthulhu Armageddon is the story of a world 100 years past the rise of the Old Ones which has been reduced to a giant monster-filled desert and pockets of human survivors (along with Deep Ones, ghouls, and other "talking" monsters).

John Henry Booth is a ranger of one of the largest remaining city-states when he's exiled for his group's massacre and the suspicion that he's "tainted". Escaping with a doctor who killed her husband, John travels across the Earth's blasted alien ruins to seek the life of the man who killed his friends.

It's the one thing he has left.

    "Cthulhu Meets Fallout"

    This book feels very much like the Fallout series meets Cthulhu with a few things different. The narration is great and fun to listen to.

    Story
    "Original tale of Post Apocalyptic Earth."

    Cthulu Armageddon deals with the remnants of humanity struggling to survive in small walled enclaves 100 years or so after the rise of the Old Ones, the primordial gods of the universe. Being so vast they barely notice the life forms on earth except as nuisaces under their tentacles. This coming has also created mutated humans and brought monsterous servants with it. Into the wasteland created by this invasion go the Rangers, the city's scavengers and warriors against the encroaching darkness.

    John Henry Booth is just such a Ranger. When he and his team discover a tower deep in the Wasteland, they discover a man they thought dead is working with the power of the Old Ones to bring about the end of Humanity as it was, and shape it to his twisted desires. When his team is lost on the mission, Booth is found wandering near his city, and is brought in and tried as a traitor. With the help of his ex wife, he escapes with another prisoner, a woman who killed her husband, and they escape into the wasteland. Out there, they discover what the madman's real plan is, and gain allies and new enemies while trying to stay alive. The climactic ending is well suited to the book, and leaves you wanting more, especially as you discover just how Booth plays into the grand scheme of things.

    Like all CT Phipps books, this is a very character driven story, even given the large and appalling setting of a world almost destroyed by the Old Ones. The relationships between Booth and his companions and enemies sets the tone for the whole book. Booth almost seems a man out of time, a warrior with honor in a time when that commodity is becoming increasingly scarce, even as his world slowly comes apart and his secret is revealed, even to himself. The worldbuiding (destroying?) is excellent, giving you a feeling of living in this desolate and dying world, where you live on the knifes edge of survival. This has to be one of the best realized dystopias I've ever heard of in books. Plot and pacing are also top notch, with a great storyline and fast paced action keeping the listener engaged.

    Narrationwise, Jeffrey Kafer does an outstanding job, which is something I've come to expect from him. He brings each character to life, and keeps the narration flowing steadily, never letting his narration lag or become monotone. Just another excellent performance.

    This book is a must listen to anyone into the Cthulu mythos or Dystopian worlds. It keeps the listener engaged and wanting to see where the story will take them. In this case, it will be in directions you never expected. All told, a five star effort from the Author.

    I was voluntarily given a review copy of this audiobook by the Author, Narrator or Publisher.

    "I'd Like To Read More Like This From The Author"

    “Cthulhu Armageddon” is set in a post-apocalyptic earth that has fallen to the “Old Ones,” the various monsters found in H. P. Lovecraft stories. The main character is John Henry Booth, a Ranger of one of the largest remaining city-states. Booth and his squad are seemingly massacred at the beginning of the book, but Booth finds himself waking up a month later with no memory of exactly what happened. The only thing he and others are sure of is that something did, indeed, happen. Booth doesn’t seem completely human anymore.

    Immediately after waking up, Booth finds out that he has become the scapegoat for his team’s massacre. He has been stripped of his commission, suspected of being tainted and sentenced to death. Ready to accept his fate, Booth is contacted by a doctor who killed her husband. Soon the two escape to the wastelands. This is just the start of “Cthulhu Armageddon.” I was not familiar with the author, C. T. Phipps before this story. Since “Cthulhu Armageddon,” I’ve found myself picking up another C. T. Phipps novel and was just as impressed by it.

    Jeffrey Kafer narrates this novel and does a wonderful job bringing an added dimension to the story. I think his voice is perfect for the Booth character and the book overall. I hope Mr. Phipps writes more stories in his Lovecraftian world. Finally, this audio book was provided by the narrator at no cost in exchange for an honest review, courtesy of Audio Book Boom.

    Story
    "Post Apocalyptic world with an American cowboy"
    What did you like best about Cthulhu Armageddon? What did you like least?

    C.T.'s description is catching from the get go. The description of the Black Cathedral is something. The building feels old and almost alive, maybe something from the underworld. I like it!

    Slowly we start to see that the world is now occupied with the great Old Ones once again. We see the land as it was destroyed, desert and strange, with deadly creatures that exist and roaming freely. There is a magic present in people they call 'touched'. And we get to see a few that are Touched.

    This book is good, but it didn't seem to hold my attention like C.T.'s other novels I've listened to. I think because I'm not 100% sure what to expect in the world here. We know there are Old Ones but not much more than that. That there are different beings or creatures that now live on the earth too. All are not known to me, but it's known to John Booth. It's not that we are seeing them for the first time with John but as we've seen them time and time again, but they are unfamiliar to me. Although, this is an attraction for many people. Not knowing what's coming around the next bend is something to keep them on their toes, and Captain John Booth could be your person with his adventure.

    There was a section where we go back to learn with John Booth as to what happened to him in the block of time he doesn't remember. I really like how C.T. smoothly brought us to the current moment. This transition felt extremely well done and thought out.


    Did Jeffrey Kafer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Jeffery Kafer has returned to the microphone for C.T. in this new novel. He voices John Booth in a way that feels as though he's John. But I didn't feel as much in the additional characters from Jeffery. For me it felt good but just shy of more.


    Any additional comments?

    The world feels Post Apocalyptic in the way the land has fallen and man has grouped, and even with the new residents of the world. John Booth is like the American cowboy on a mission through the book.

    Story
    "Western/Horror/Humour"

    I have to admit, that following Jeffery Kafer around brought me to this book. I kept looking at it, reading the synopsis and then not picking it up, but I did still keep on coming back to it. A friend kept pushing me to give it a go, and I'm glad that I did. I'm not very familiar with Cthulhu as a story, but because it seemed to be myth/law, I did a little digging and found many references to it. Nice job on creating this amazing world around something so diverse in its creation.

    C.T. Phipps has an extraordinary imagination, both for the setting and the characters. It starts off really quick and the action just doesn't let up. The humour, both dark, and gripping kept me listening even with the horrible creatures and destruction of our world.

    Booth's mission with his team turns bad and he loses them all or so he thinks, he's not only any clue how he eventually escapes but he's left with a strange handprint on his shoulder. As things unfold Booth's adventure grows in intensity, he's to take the blame for his team's death, resulting in a public execution, that the 'torturer' Mercury fakes because she wants him as a guide in the wastelands. It seems her life is on a short leash as well. So booth agrees to help her reluctantly.

    The friendships that develop and the journey that Booth sets out on is fraught with monsters, danger, and death.

    The monsters are horrible. I didn't think that anything he could continue to see and witness would scare him more than the previous encounter, and in one sense, I think that being terrified all the time did get a little repetitive. I believe that more you're exposed to these kinds of things the more that you get accustomed to them, or at least a little immune, the horrors of war and life in the wastelands would be more and more like normal life, but the fact was that Booth seemed to just keep on finding things so horrible and sickening that it kind of detracted it for me.

    The narration was, of course, pretty spot on, there were great characterisations from Jeffery especially with Booth, I enjoyed the performance and the ladies, even if they all did seem to fawn over the MC. The only one who gave as much as she was dealt with, without an emotional attachment was Jackie, and she was a kid, everyone else seemed to 'want' to be with or had been with Booth, and that got a little old, more so thinking that he actually might want to be with the woman who tortured people.... Booth seemed to just do the opposite of what I thought he might when there was a pretty body near him.

    Overall I was impressed both with the story and the narration, so I picked up book 2 and am almost finished with it :) Thank you for the entertainment, really enjoyed the journey and the ending was really exciting! solid 4.5 stars from me all round.

    Story
    "grim western set in a magical realm"

    In a genre of Cthulhu monsters and elder gods, this was expectedly strange and unique. The weird western setting was a cool start, with the hook of a soldier trying to find out how his team was killed on a mission. The many twists and clues about who was responsible and how our hero would respond led to a fast paced journey through the strange and magical blend of realities. The middle of the book lost me at times, and had portions where I lost interest in the plot, but I rode out the last three hours and thought it had a great ending. Part of my problem was the compounding grimness of the feel and succeeding stages in the plot. The ending offered a piece of hope that helped enhance my empathy for the characters going forward, and as a kind of relief from the mostly depressing tone of the rest of the book. The narrator, Jeffrey Kafer does a great job as always, and certainly fits the bleak feel. This one landed a little outside my preference for dystopia/post-apocalyptic in this sense, but the creativity in world building and plot twists could make this a great read for someone with a bit different preferences on tone.
    3.5/5 stars

Phipps has created yet another exeptional protagonist to want to keep fallowing. simply amazing. a must read.

    "Fun action romp through dystopian Earth."

    Plenty of action and monsters and a real dystopian feel. Alas, I struggled with the narration and the 'protag' throughout, although that may just be me. Mad Max vs Predator is the best way I can describe this, so if that's your bag then give it a shot and hold on tight for gargantuan beings and vistas alike.
