Publisher's Summary

The world of man was brought to its knees with the zombie apocalypse. A hundred and fifty years have passed since man clawed and climbed his way back from the brink of extinction. Civilization has rebooted, man has begun to rebuild, creating new communities and society. It is on this fragile new shaky ground that a threat worse than the scourge of the dead has sprung...

Once again, one man finds himself once thrust into the forefront of a war he wants nothing to do with and seemingly cannot win. Follow along as Michael Talbot attempts to thwart the rise of the werewolf...

Enjoyable

As a newcomer to Mark Tufo's work, I was pleasantly surprised. His writing style flows well and is easy to follow along with.

I slightly take issue with the notion that this is a stand alone book, seeing as characters from his other works are front and center. Some effort is made to explain who they are, but it feels like it was an afterthought. For example: (light spoilers ahead) at no point is it explained how or why the protagonist is a vampire. The significance of many characters was simply lost on me as someone who isn't at all familiar with his Zombie Fallout series.

Never the less, there's enough of an original plot here that I still found it enjoyable. So I'll probably follow up on Mark's work, since all in all he is a good writer.

Loved it! Mike Talbot Returns!!!

I jumped on this one as soon as I found it. I had no idea that there was going to be a Lycan Fallout but it was a welcomed surprise when I saw it. There a re a couple of surprises in this book, a series of new characters being introduced and a bunch of old characters resurfacing. If you even remotely liked Zombie Fallout, you will absolutely be floored with Lycan Fallout.

I very much appreciated the fact that Sean Runnette has returned. I am willing to say now that I am a complete fan of Sean Runnette as a narrator. I never noticed how many titles I have that is narrated by him in my library and each and every one of them I find that I have thoroughly enjoyed.

Lycan Fallout itself and Mark Tufo on a whole is a combination of old and new. Old in the sense that you are once again thrown into the world of Mike Talbot in a time long after the happenings in Zombie Fallout. Not a direct sequel of the book but somewhat of an alternate reality... If you have listened to any other Mark Tufo books you will see Mike Talbot's character reoccurring in varying situations. New in the sense that there are now Lycans, the quest to regain his soul and the appearance of varying new characters.

One Fallout Isn't Enough for Michael Talbot

First of all, i have assumed that this book was a stand alone book, but its a new fallout series, which is amazing, and its starring our dear friend Michael Talbot. although it is weird that a new series have started, while the first one starring Michael Talbot didn't finish yet, but still its a great idea.

So after mankind survived from zombies, Lycans and warewolfs find it their turn to eat and kill all man kind.. Mark Tufo, give man kind a break.. a 150 years is not enough for them. Not going to say which characters from the zombie fallout come here, you have to read the book to find out, lets just say its a good combination.

This first book was bloody and had a really sad ending. but I feel that this is nothing comparing to what Tufo has in his mind.

Another great beginning for a series, and looking forward for the next book and series.

Disregard the preface

Any additional comments?

The author states in the beginning that having any knowledge of series Zombie Fallout is not necessary. That is a LIE put out by the author to get new people to listen to his work. There are too many references to events in Zombie Fallout to disregard the series as unnecessary pre read. There are even mentions of Indian Hill events.

Mark Tufo knocks it out of the park again

Would you listen to Lycan Fallout again? Why?

Absolutely. Mark Tufo's books are must-reads and must-rereads for me. Talbot has become part of the family and while I find myself occasionally yelling at him because he's being stupid, it's because i find myself caring for him and identifying with him. Reliving the adventures only brings him back to life for me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Michael Talbot. Duh.

What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

Sean Runnette IS Michael Talbot. His accent, reading style, and everything just brings a lot of life and humor into the book, where other narrators just fall flat.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Talbot's adventures ALWAYS make me laugh and cry. He's real to me, and I enjoy living through the adventures with him.

Awesome.....yup, just awesome!

EXCITED! Not a werewolf fan but after reading Tufo's Lycan Fallout I am now becoming a fan. The book follows a weary and depressed (until he gets mad) Mike Talbot (now a vampire) on a quest to save mankind against werewolves and lycans. Witches, Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves, and Lycans oh no! This book as it all. Will mankind prevail? Will Mike rally the villages to come together to fight? Will he make it in time? You will just have to read Rise of the Werewolf and wait for the rest in the series to find out.

Narration was perfect as always....Sean Runnette is a perfect fit!!!!!

What do you call a depressed sarcastic person?

I loved Mike in the Zombie Fallout books. It was the character's voice (not the actor; I mean the expressions and attitude of the character) that made those books stand out from others in the genre. Mike was a up-beat, can-do everyman whose quips and a positive outlook managed to survive the ZA. He kept his humor and his moral code, and collected fun friends along the way. AND there was still action and violence.

So I bought this thinking I'd get the same. OMG. I wanted to shoot myself after the first few chapters. The tone was defeated and the story line, stalled. Maybe it got better after the first few chapters, but I'll never know - I'm not picking up that flat and dull piece of work again.

Sean Runnette did the best he could with what he had, I guess.

To much Michael Talbot - give me a new hero!

I enjoyed the Talbot zombie series. I could not get into this or the Indian Hill series because Tufo uses the same characters. In the introduction Tufo says this is a stand alone but on the same time line. I was confused in the start of chapter one when in the main character, Mike Talbot begins the story, as usual with a journal entry. He is the main character in the zombie and Indian Hill series.

Talbot use the same narrator, which reinforce that sameness from the other series. The characters has the same personality characteristics. Despite what he says, understanding Mike's character and relationship with Tommy does play in this book, at least in the beginning. If you have not read the zombie series, you will not understand the significance of Henry or the pop tart reference.

I did not even get to chapter two before I was finish. Why can't Tufo just create new characters. If your three series are stand alone, create new characters. If they are not, put them in a chronological order.

Good fun and a smart ass Talbot

Lycan Fallout is the first book which somewhat continues after Zombie Fallout. If you don’t like zombies but want a fun action book come on down. If you liked the Mike Talbot character from Zombie Fallout then you should probably read this as he’s just as much of smart ass here as he was there. The book has a familiar cast of characters and is good fun. It has a good balance of action and moving the story along and made me laugh in a number of places. I can’t wait to see what happens in book number 2!

Sean Runnette is a great Narrator and he does wonderfully here.
