Publisher's Summary

Before World War II could reach its conclusion, the world suffered what could only be defined as a cataclysm.

Legend has it that an experiment failed. Catastrophically so. And when it failed, the center of the United States, from the Sierra Nevada to the Mississippi river, became "The Waste", where everything changed.

In The Waste, every fantasy creature, fairytale demon, or mythological monster exists. From orcs, to neriads, ogres, trolls, wraiths, elves, harpies, and even beastmen. They all exist, and all despise humankind.

In the ruins of the west and east coasts, new governments have arisen. With new jobs.

Vince is a Ranger, a profession whose sole job duty is surviving in the waste, and taking missions from the Ranger Guild. Be it courier services, escorts, or simply exploring tombs and cities.

Taking up an escort mission, Vince encounters a situation that will shape his life forever onward.

As well as the lives of everyone in North America.

Warning: This novel contains adult themes and moral ambiguities. The main character is written as a real person in an apocalypse, and will not make choices that line up with society and cultural norms.

    "Fantastic!"

    Nice ballance between erotica and story. Excellent character development, none of the characters are two dimensional or overly cliché. Both the author and narrator make you care about them all.

    Looking forward to the next book.

    "Everything I Love in One Book"

    Fantasy, magic and sex? Amazing! I just loved this book. I guess this can be called erotic fantasy, but it really felt like it was much more than that. Amazing characters and character development and a great environment. I loved the take on the whole post-apocalyptic world mixed with magic. Eagerly waiting for the sequel!

    Thank you for an entertaining start. the reader was very good and the story line held up nicely. All characters maintained continuity and kept their places in the pecking order.
    Please don't take to long with next audio.

    "Amazing narration to a great story"

    First let me say, though Andrea's voices for the characters didn't fit with what I'd imagined for them, they did fit the characters enough to grow on me. Please tell me she will be doing the whole series. It's always weird for me to listen to an audio book of one I've previously read since it can be quite jarring when the narrator 'miss voices' someone. Thankfully that didn't happen here.

    As far as the story itself goes, it's your typical loner guy sets off on adventure, meets harem, danger, and fun times insue. The story is good, the characters are well written. The sex isn't overdone and fits the plotline, adding to the overall story. If that's not your thing, or it bothers you, give this book a skip, you probably won't like it. Otherwise I can't recommend it enough.

    I plan to give more Andrea Parsneau books a listen while waiting for Randi to finish book two. She's really good at bringing a book to life.

    "May be a bit too adult for most listeners"

    Great story and very entertaining if a bit adult.

    If your looking for an adult based fantasy novel this is well worth it.

    Story
    "Interesting with potential flat as week old Coke"

    Fantasy adventure with a harem of girls of a variety of unique fantasy races; Orc, Dryad, Soldier Ant, and Elves. Kinda post apocalypse. Main male character seems to have undergone some sort of genetic engineering as a child by his mother. It is only alluded and never elaborated upon. I really wanted to like it. It is not even close to as good as any of the Daniel Black books, The Selfless Hero Trilogy, or Good Intentions. The author should take notes on the main characters from those two series. I'm fine with graphic sex when it adds something to the story. The story could have been greatly improved upon with the character development of all the females. The females have so much potential but the writer basically treats them all like Dutch Wives. I honestly laughed a number of times as I could frankly imagine a sexually frustrated teenage boy trying to write a Fantasy Adventure story from the Harem subgenre and it turning into this. The series is certainly not beyond salvage. I hope the writer continues to grind away at the craft and takes the feedback from those of us that have invested in this first and hopefully not last book. In closing, the female narrator saved you book this time. The narrator's performance far outstripped the material she was given. I could easily give the narrator five stars with any other material. Truth is the material actually was bad enough that I had to keep that fifth star.

    "Disappointing narration for a great story"
    Where does Wild Wastes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Great story. Horrible choice fora narator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Andrea Parsneau’s performances?

    As long as it's not for a male main character. She has a slightly breathy and sultry voice. Everything sounds like she's about to have an orgasm. And it makes you feel like the main character is a woman.

    "Good but under wrong category"

    Passable science fiction / fantasy cover of a blatantly amazing erotic book. What clinches the cover status of the SF / FA is the pure deluge of descriptive and imaginatively delightful sex. There are times that it would be forgivable to forget that this is a book set in a SF/FA / alt history world.
