boring

Definitely not for me, I found this series extremely boring and skipped through a lot of it. New type of monster for an apocalypse series, monsters from the depths of the earth. Reminded me of an attempt of a ripoff from Riddick movies

Not worth the listen

Tried slugging through this. The premise is good but the characters are ridiculous. Bad guys who’ve messed up the grid and freed monsters think catching the good guy will enable them to go on as if nothing happened, although there will never be electricity again and theirs monsters killing everyone. Good guy’s continuous relating if his thoughts which don’t equate to the critical nature of the environment are annoying. Just not worth it.

Requires massive suspension of disbelief

I think in order to really enjoy this book do you need to not only suspend your disbelief, you need to beat the crap out of your disbelief, take it out back and bury it.
to believe this I guess you'd have to believe that as many as every dog in the world all of a sudden came out of the ground from one point but within a day we're all over the world. millions of predators underground who ate a mineral, but had teeth and claws perfectly designed for tearing apart human flesh, Darwin would be laughing his ass off.
loading dock at the hospital must be the biggest loading dock in the history of mankind. people had to run 2 miles to get from the door at the loading dock to get to the car at the end of the loading dock.
ALSO NOTE, NOT A COMPLETE SERIES

Decent story

Good book but very predictable and the some of the outcomes aren't logical compared to probability.

Chocked full of immersion breaking nonsense

I really wanted to like this series, truly I did. But man, every time it started to get good, something stupid would pop up and annoy me to the point of breaking immersion. Ill get into some of it, so fair warning, spoiler alert.

The main monster is a mole like dog. Seriously. Subterranian ancient species provoked into coming to the surface. Nothing special about them, nothing overly dangerous. They arent extremely fast, strong, intellegent, venemous, infectious, nothing of thr sort. They are dogs, behaive like dogs, and are as easy to kill as dogs. Oh, and light hurts them, so where a wild dog is a threat 24/7 these guys are only dangerous in the dark. Yet these things appearing brings the us military and its armed citizens to their knees in a matter of days. Its a wholesale slaughter. It makes absolutely 0 sense no matter what way you look at it. Sure, theyd be scary and a threat if youd never ever encounter them before. But after the first night, they shouldnt be a threat. Heck, the characters wife keeps them from entering the house with a simple chair jamed under the knob of a broken door. A simple flashlight beam is enough to send them running in agony.

The main antagonist, a hotshot in an energy company, has his own personal pmc who is openly killing anyone they find in the streets. It happens right in front of the main protagonist, and a freaking national guard detachment goes along with it!??!?!

There are no friendly civilians. At all. Period. Its all of 1 day into a power outage with some freaky dogs, and people just openly slaughter everyone else. Come on, get real guys. I almost finished the 3rd of these 4 books before returning it due to how hard it was to get into, and they had yet to meet a single group of friendly anyone, anywhere, in like 24hours of listening.

The daughter. Ugg, youll he hoping a dog rips her to pieces. Whiny little brat..

Ive suffered through tough openings of books before only to have them turn into gems, which is why i stuck it out so long. But man ive had enough.. i almost never return books, but this one is going back.

If you like the genre, go check out extinction cycle. Youll be far happier.

I like it

It's a good story, the only annoying character is Glory. can the authors write in a Mexican Mom who spanks her with a chancla?

Overly verbose

Strings of adjectives behind anything. Overuse of consonance. Overly detailed descriptions. Not a bad story line but the editor or writer wastes too much time being overly verbose.

Can't finish

Started book 2 couldn't finish , I swear the characters are dumb as rocks fir survivalist or military men. Maybe it's because I am military and that's why I can't handle this whine mess, or break of protocol and discipline... the story just rambles on about what is, does it mean, temper tantrum kids let's give her pancakes. Book is bad real bad... narrator was pretty good.

the fall asleep book.

I could not finish this story. I think it's poorly written and the narrator was making me fall asleep. He might be better with better material.

Repetitive

I really struggled to finish . I got so tired of him repeating the same thing over again I will not listen or read any more books by Mike Kraus. I pushed through most of it only because I paid for it.
