Description

"Leave it to DJ Molles to change the genre with a breakneck action novel that had me turning the pages while thinking, why the hell didn't I write this?!" (Nicholas Sansbury Smith, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Hell Divers and Extinction Cycle series) 

In the beginning, the gods destroyed the world. 

Five hundred years later, things haven’t gotten much better for humans. The demigods that were left behind to guard over humanity have been using them as fodder for an endless civil war between themselves, and the humans just go on dutifully slaughtering each other, battle after battle. 

It’s not all bad, though. Perry McGown makes his living off those bloody, stinking battlefields. He works on a crew that reclaims all the spent shell casings. They reload them into new cartridges, and then sell them in towns. It’s a good gig, it puts a few gold coins in Perry’s pocket, and best of all, no one asks too many questions about his past. 

Which is ideal, because if anyone found out that he was a deserter from the war, he’d be executed for heresy. 

Then some bad blood between crewmembers leads to one man with his brains dashed in, and Perry heading for the hangman’s noose. Through a flurry of gunfire and blood, Perry manages a narrow escape, but only with the help of the two people he likes least: A girl named Teran that asks far too many questions about his past; and an ex-legionnaire named Stuber, whose penchant for gleeful violence brings back bad memories for Perry. 

On the run and pursued by a ruthless demigod, Perry is forced to confront the demons of a past that he thought he’d left behind him - and learn truths about himself and his family that have been buried for decades. But the more Perry learns, the more dangerous his journey becomes. Because the truth about Perry could break the gods.

Well, turned out way better than i thought

I must be honest, for the first 3 to 4 hours i kept wondering to myself "where's this going?' Give it a chance. Its a set up for a bad@$$ story.

Better than I thought

Christian Rummel saves this book. His reading was compelling enough to Get the listener past the dry suspense that is riddled through this book.

He does it again!

The versatility of this author is incredible. I would imagine it’s very difficult to make a quality single series, but what is this, his fifth?

Every book of his leaves you anxious for the next installment. And this one is no different. Get this book, I feel like I’m ripping the author and audible off with a mere $11 credit.

Could be better

I'm a big fan of DJ Molles from his Remaining series. That said the story was a bit lacking. Stuber is awesome, Perry is a baby and the overall setting is interesting. This book might be more of a "scene setting" story so I'll definitely be checking out the next book in the series to see if it picks up.

wow - what a great sci fi book

well, this exceeded my expectations. I knew dj molles was a good author from his Lee & Angela books. I was cautiously optimistic when I started, hoping for a good book. and I got one. The narrator is the same as Mr Molles previous books, which is good. I am so used to his voicing Lee and Angela, it took me a bit to shift gears to the new characters:) Setting up the backstory, aka universe in this book took a bit. It was woven in with the story and it appears to be a complex, yet believable set of story constraints. Action is fast paced, believable, logical. The characters seem like real people - thought one quesion is how did Uncle get so accepted so quickly by the Outsiders?? just a random thought here.
I am in my car 3 hours a day. So when I find myself going out a lunch to listen to a book, I know it is a good one. And I did that until this book ended. So bring on the next one!

Great Book!

This could be a series that ranks up there with Red Rising and (dare I say) the First Law series. Great start.

Mad Max meets Star Wars

Great story by D.J. as usual and Christian Rummel's performance was also great as always.

It grows on you

The starting of the story was a bit hard on the ears not having heard language like that in some years :) but it does fit the story line. I almost stopped listening maybe a 1/4 of the way but the plot and story line picks up nicely. And at the end, i can honestly say i am anxious for the next book. Short Stack is a growing forming character which is nice to hear for a change. His supporting characters are fully formed and contribute to the story well and they grow some too. I found the plot engaging and not too hard to follow which is always nice assuming you want a light plot. There have been some fun twists already and some comic sarcasm which is always welcomed

Take it easy short stack

What can I say DJ Molles is my favorite author and Christian Rommel is one of my favorite narrators. I really recommend this book it sounds like it’s gonna be another hit like the remaining series. The only thing I don’t like about this book is that I have to wait for book 2 :)
