Boarding a transport ship after the Battle of Gettysburg, Colonel Andrew Keane and his 35th Maine regiment are swept into an alternate world. The first human civilization they encounter on this planet resembles medieval Russia, with boyars and priests ruling over the peasants and townspeople. Soon Keane and his regiment learn this world's terrible secret: that cannibalistic hordes of large, fierce Tugars circle the planet and demand tribute - including humans to be devoured.

I've read this series multiple times and was happy to see an audiobook version. Patrick Lawlor does an impressive job with the material. Mostly every character is given a unique voice which really adds to the story telling. The novel itself is a fun read/listen. There's a bit of cheesiness that creeps in here and there and a few missed opportunities for character development (two of the antagonists have sons but are only ever briefly mentioned and could have had a deeper impact on some of the character motivations. The good do far outweigh the negatives. Lots of fun action, great bad guys and as one reviewer put a whole lot of MacGyvering! Overall though I would highly recommend!

Welcome to Derry, Maine. It’s a small city, a place as hauntingly familiar as your own hometown. Only in Derry the haunting is real. They were seven teenagers when they first stumbled upon the horror. Now they are grown-up men and women who have gone out into the big world to gain success and happiness. But the promise they made twenty-eight years ago calls them reunite in the same place where, as teenagers, they battled an evil creature that preyed on the city’s children.

I've been listening to "It" for the past several weeks as I travel to and from work and I have to say when I'm driving home at night my adrenaline spikes! Steven Weber puts his heart and soul into narrating the book and his passion goes a long way to making Stephen King's novel go from great to FANTASTIC! Highly recommended!
