Publisher's Summary

After the apocalypse, the world’s most valuable resource is the people that remain. And the knowledge and skills they possess.

On the island of Big Tancook, Collie Jones is making plans. She informs the islanders that it’s time to resume her original mission - to find other survivors, screen them, and return them to the island. Every survivor she brings back is one more valuable addition to the skill and gene pool.

But first, she must return to the place whence she came.

She must secure the elaborate government bunker called Whitecap and its vast stores of munitions within.

With a small group accompanying her - including Gus Berry, the Mountain Man - the islanders will once again return to the mainland and confront a new enemy.

An enemy who has the very same goal of locating survivors, but for a different purpose.

To build an empire.

Contains coarse language and violence.

Great Series

This story was a bit short but still excellent. This is the first zombie apocalypse series I've every read. It's not really my thing. Having said that, I love the series and the characters. R.C. Bray does a great job with the voices.

A worthy Sequel. Incredibly Fun

In a world fighting coronavirus, novels about dystopian futures are particularly engrossing. Blackmore's vision of a post-apocalyptic Canada is somewhat disturbing. The 'Road Warrior' meets 'Walking Dead' approach, as cartoonishly ridiculous as it is, actually made me take pause and think.
Obvious fiction, but some real-life people are acting almost like bands of roving sociopaths could actually happen. Regardless, this book is a blast.
Blackmore's descriptions are vivid and humorous. His pacing is break-neck. His chief characters are engrossing. Unfortunately, most of his peripheral figures are pretty shallow.
I would love to know Bruno or Corey's backgrounds. What is Monica's deal? Coming in the next book, I guess.

R.C. Bray is, well, R.C. Bray...best narrator in the Business.

This continuation of the "Mountain Man" series is fantastic, and could be read stand-alone, though it's set up for an obvious sequel. Bring it on.

Another great story about Gus.

Really enjoyed this story. I like where Blackmore is taking it as long as there are going to be more. And making Canuckistan a nuclear power, breathtaking!
Of course, RC was amazing. Makes all the books he reads that much better.

AMAZING

I adore this series. I was SO EXCITED when I heard #5 had been released.. finished it in a few days. RC Bray is absolutely amazing as the entire cast, and I couldn't imagine any one else narrating the series.
Blackmore, I will be here waiting for #6, please don't ever stop this series /lol/

i need some Captain after this one

really like this next book in the Mountain man series. i didn't enjoy it as much as the previous books but in saying that it was really good. I believe no matter what your of this opinion this book it was necessary to advance the Mountain Man story. In books and shows you need an information filler season or book to drive the story ahead and that's what i feel this book is. don't get me wrong it was a well written and had lots of substance, i feel the next chapter will be epic because i have faith in Keith C Blackmore.
great listen well worth the purchase and my biggest complaint is that i don't know how long i have to wait for MM6.
Keith from a fellow maritimer(NB) I'm glad i found your books and keep up the great work!!
R.C. Bray love your books you have ruined me to be able to listen to a lot of different narrators. The mountain man series is what introduced me to you. Love your work keep it up and i hope you have a pocket of time carved out in your busy schedule for MM6 AS SOON AS ITS DONE, because we need morrrrrrree!!!!!!

FAN-FRACKING-TASTIC!!!!

Blackmore just opened up a whole new can of whoopass, expanded the Mountain man universe with this incredible story. RC Bray bright back old friends, and introduced us to New ones, and of course new ball-breaking bad guys, peppered with monsters. this series is my favorite in the genre, and podium audio is a top notch outfit, never disappoints me. Kieth is a genius at stringing words together and Bob brings it all to life, I can't recommend this series enough. at the end of this story, Bray asks the reader to visit them in social media, so come join the fan group 50 shades of Bray on Facebook, a group of fans who Geek out on all of these great stories in the Bray universe!!

best yet <br />

Blackmore's best writing yet. When you combine this with R.C. Bray's narration you get an instant classic. Most series get watered down over time but the mountain man series continue to just get better. Highly recommend this series.

One of my favorite storylines.

Not your normal zombie faire. It is a good storyline with some serious twists and turns.

Love Gus

I really missed spending time with Gus! So glad this series has been continued. Bray gives a great performance as usual. I felt that Gus was a little more passive in this story than we’ve ever seen before but overall, the story was great. Nice to have some new characters thrown into the mix. This guy deserves to catch a break. Gus is the guy I love to root for. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Enjoy!
