Survival in Man's Second Dark Age
Three hundred years after the fall of society, the last fragments of civilization are clinging to life, living in the ruins of the ancient cities in nearly-medieval conditions. Technology has been reduced to legend, monsters roam the forests, and fear reigns supreme. But that is just the beginning...
The wind-borne spores are spreading, disfiguring men and twisting their minds, turning them into creatures that threaten to destroy the townships. Among the townsfolk, political and the religious, dissension is spreading.
Through it all, a mother must protect her son...

Wow. Just wow! I wasn't sure how much I was going to like this, as I've seen collaborations go horribly awry before. This, however, was insanely great! I couldn't tell the story was coming from different sources because I was so wrapped up in what was happening. The plot, the flow, EVERYTHING, is just awesome! I love dystopian, but this one was unlike any of the others that I've read in the past, and I love it! Thank God tomorrow is payday, because I almost cried when the narrator said "End of book 1".
Speaking of the narrator, a Mr. Sean Runnette, I suppose I should give my opinion about him, as well. I have to say, this man is my favorite one so far. Granted, I haven't had a whole lot of experience with audibles (they can be a bit pricey!), but of the few, he is the only one so far that I have absolutely no complaints with. His voice was deep and soothing, but instead of lulling me into a bored or tired state, he kept me completely engaged in every word he uttered. He spoke clearly and with the emotion one would hope for when being read to. Very well done job, sir! I've decided to make a list of the narrators and rank them for my personal use, and he is going at the top of those I want to look for more work by.
All in all, this work was wonderfully done.
