Publisher's Summary

After securing High Point Special Facility, Colonel Lee and his lightfighters of Tenth Mountain have been shot up, run out, and worn down.

Pretty Meh

I followed this arc because I started it. The story had so much potential but it’s just so meh at this point. Only RC Bray’s performance saves this series. And the villain’s agenda for creating the virus is just so stupid. I almost returned the book immediately after I heard it but decided I at least owed Bray’s awesome performance full listen.

Turning into a bit of a cliche now.

just really underwhelming book. An evil for the sake of being evil mad scientist. Infighting with characters that previously had no problems/interaction before. New super bad virus that can't be fought. Basically a checklist for bad scifi fanfiction.

terrible, I love it!

this has been one of the most graphic and violent books I've ever heard. like a car crash that goes on for hours. I have seriously questioned my humanity for continuing to listen.
I can't wait for the next one.

Outstanding!!!!

Without doubt the best military apocalyptic series. The story is riveting and believable. My only issue is the length of the books. But that said I’m looking forward to the next in the series
