Publisher's Summary

For Henry, a 17-year-old who feels no fear, the day starts like any other - homeless and alone on the streets of Boston. For Sarah, a 20-year-old college dropout, it’s an early morning serving donuts and coffee to commuters at North Station. Fate brings them together at the scene of a bank robbery, which they foil together, along with a mysterious and wealthy woman named Helen, who offers to reward them for their bravery.

But before they can reach Helen’s penthouse, they are assaulted by men and women from all walks of life, including police officers. Helen displays impressive fighting skills, fending off the attacks, allowing Henry and Sarah to make their escape - but they are spotted and pursued by the violent cult, out for Helen’s blood...and now theirs. 

Racing through the streets of Boston, Sarah and Henry are propelled into a strange and ancient underworld where the impossible is real, where the old world still lives, and where the gods still walk among us. As the pair wages war against the killers hunting them, they discover the truth about who their deceased parents were, and that their lives could be far more exceptional than either believed possible...if they can survive the day.

With Tribe, number-one Audible and New York Times best-selling author Jeremy Robinson brings mythology to the modern world, combining his trademarked fast-paced action and well developed characters and taking them to new levels of craziness. It’s 300, John Wick, and Wonder Woman rolled into a new kind of literary insanity.

Don’t think, just let yourself be absorbed.

This started off very interestingly. I was anticipating a much different progression than we got. Without spoiling it, the road taken is a little hokey. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still entertaining, but the way each turn comes, you are aware of and forced to recheck your suspension of disbelief. A lot of, “uh, okay... sure. Why not.”

The reference to R.C. Bray’s other series was cute the first time, but the forced plug was a little much. And this is coming from a huge fan of that series.

Overall, the story is okay. The author gives you a couple of interesting characters to follow. One more so than the other in my opinion. Henry’s character is simply to entertaining in his dialog and choices.

I do recommend this to people looking for a book that they can listen to, in which you give yourself the allowance to just turn off and let it happen. No need to think about much. Kinda bubblegum, if you understand what that means. W

THIS... IS... SPARTA!

What a rush man... It's fast, snappy and Mortal Kombat brutal laced with dark intelligent humour. Henry is now one of my favourite characters. His deadpan fearless dialog is just fantastic. Jeremy Robinson's usual pop culture references are sprinkled throughout the dialog along with some absolute epic one-liners. RC Bray's narration is world class as always and there's an awesome guest appearance for the Brayniacs out there.

The blurb says a mix of 300 and John Wick. I can absolutely see that, but would also add Percy Jackson in there. "... stared at me like I'd farted out a smurf" almost made me crash the car.

I can see this one pulling in more awards for these two.

What a great book, bitches!!

From his early books like "The Didymus Contingency" I was hooked on Robinson. He demonstrates his broad range whether it be time-travel, Sci-Fi, Kaiju Monsters or comedic Alien invasions. Now combine his writing skills with the narration talents of R. C, Bray, and you have the makings of a fantastic listening experience.

"Tribe" is full of action and humor. R. C. provides a great portrayal of all the characters (as usual) but in particular that of a 17-year-old boy without an amygdala and thus no fear and no filter on his mouth. Such a great plot device that R.C. leverages to the max.

Sarah, a 20-year-old Dunkin Donuts server, and Henry a 17-year-old orphan cross paths when Sarah comes to Henry's aid as his unfiltered mouth gets him into trouble while in line for a donut. And while Sarah loses her job as a result of the encounter, they meet up again and thwart a bank robbery. But we start to see that these two are different and seem to connect with one another. But it was not actually a robbery, but an attempt to kidnap a woman named Helen. Dispensing with the thugs, Helen takes the two under her wing and things get wild from there.

There are repeated attempts to capture Helen. Sarah and Henry again come to her defense and are discovering that they have extraordinary abilities that are only getting more powerful. But Helen is no slouch either and they soon discover that their meeting was no accident. The three of them are connected in a way that I did not see coming. Robinson leverages some ancient mythologies that explain how these three are related and who is trying to capture Helen and now Sarah and Henry. Sorry, no spoilers.

The story is fast-paced and has a satisfying ending that sets us up for a new series or trilogy. You can't help but connect with the characters, even if one of them loves the band Poison. Clearly, R.C. and Robinson had fun in this book as the character Skippy, from the Expeditionary Force book series by Craig Alanson and voice by R.C., makes a cameo appearance in the book - what a delight.

Great book - can't wait for #2.

Love RC Bray, but I just didn’t like the story. Definitely some funny parts, but it just wasn’t my kind of book

Worst part was when it was over

Wasn't sure at the beginning, loved every minute afterwards. Highly recommended. Especially to those who have already read (or listened to) the Expeditionary Force series.

Bring on Book 2 !!!

Very entertaining ,quick witted and action filled. Great storyline on mythology and character plot should definitely be a series. Mr. Robinson's talents shine and Mr. Bray's performance was excellent. Being a New Englander and knowing the landmarks in downtown made the action sequences more enjoyable. Get it you won't be disappointed.

Great Story. Bray was excellent

This was a tough one. I had to force to stop at o e point. It just drew me I. Time just flew by and to be honest. I wish he had kept the story going. I was easy to invest in the characters. Even the evil ones. Pick this one up if you really want to be entertained

Wow

I enjoyed the story and as always R.C. Bray’s narration. The big kicker was a sneak appearance of Skippy the Magnificent from the Expeditionary Force books. That was an amazing and delightful twist. Gonna listen to it again now! Enjoy

awesome ride!

Jeremy Robinson coupled with R.C Bray. what more could you possibly want? Outstanding writing that has mystery action and a whole lot of laughs. I could relisten to this novel over and over again. Actually I think I'm going to do that now. highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Robinson or the lord Bray.

Another Outstanding Collaboration

Once again, Jeremy Robinson and R.C. Bray have collaborated to deliver outstanding entertainment!

Imagine your worst day of work. Now add in an annoying, impulsive teen. No, not just the typical impulsiveness almost all teens are prone to, but the kind where the kid not only doesn't fear consequences, but doesn't have the capacity to even feel fear. Yeah, Sarah's day is THAT bad, and it's still early in the morning. But wait, it gets worse!

Sarah (20) and Henry, the aforementioned teen (17), have their fates entwined for the second time in a single day when their chance meeting at a Boston bank unexpectedly involves four armed thugs. As it turns out, these guys are part of a cult, one with a surprisingly large following throughout the city. As you might expect with a cult, Sarah and Henry catch their interest and are then on the run for their lives. Things haven't even begun to get weird yet!

Jeremy Robinson is one of the most exciting, creative authors of our generation. He blends fast-paced stories with surprising elements, and a healthy serving of mythology, monsters, or both. His pop-culture references, past and present, also provide ample humor to his tales.

R.C. Bray is fantastic. His portrayal of the characters is excellent, especially with the uniqueness of Henry. For anyone who is an avid fan of Bray, there is a special cameo of one of his most popular characters to look forward to. It is great to see authors supporting one another in their work, particularly when we fans get a bonus treat.
