Summary

In the aftermath of the War with No Name, the Colony has been defeated, its queen lies dead, and the world left behind will never be the same. In her madness, the queen used a strange technology to uplift the surface animals, turning dogs and cats, bats and bears, pigs and wolves into intelligent, highly evolved creatures who rise up and kill their oppressors. And now, after years of bloodshed, these sentient beasts must learn to live alongside their sworn enemies - humans.

Far removed from this newly emerging civilization, a housecat turned war hero named Mort(e) lives a quiet life with the love he thought he had lost, a dog named Sheba. But before long, the chaos that they escaped comes crashing down around them. An unstoppable monster terrorizes a nearby settlement of beavers. A serial killer runs amok in the holy city of Hosanna. An apocalyptic cult threatens the fragile peace. And a mysterious race of amphibious creatures rises from the seas, intent on fulfilling the Colony's destiny and ridding the earth of all humans. No longer able to run away, Sheba and Mort(e) rush headlong into the conflict, ready to fight but unprepared for a world that seems hell-bent on tearing them apart. In the twilight of all life on earth, love survives - but at a cost that only the desperate and the reckless are willing to pay.

Couldn't finish it...

I have over 200 books in my Audible library. Of those books, there have only been about 6 I couldn't finish. Alas... D'Arc has been added to that list of unfinished books. I really enjoyed Mort(e) and was pleased to see a new addition to the story. Although there is nothing wrong with Robert Repino's writing or Bronson Pinchot's narration (although I do find it a bit too detached and low keyed), I quickly realized that the story itself was at fault. There was nothing here worth telling. I didn't care about these characters, and especially the beavers. While it was interesting to see Mort(e) as the battle scared veteran trying to find peace after a lifetime of war, I couldn't shake the feeling that I was listening to an animalized retelling of Rambo II.

amazing adventure story

Literally the best book
great story of emotion, war, and revolution of a new society after a very unique catastrophe.
one of the best adventures I've ever taken, the structure of the book, the details and the immense back story on all the characters and such, are all so well executed and the best part?
The second book is even better! i haven't gotten to the third yet but i have high hopes.
also the narrator is top notch

It was better than idiotic religious ending

This book was better than the Mort(e) where ending was idiotically religious while it also dissing religion in some ways, I don't know what author is trying to say to others. Anyways, I just liked characters and world chronologically in book 1 but I like story of book 2.

Felt like a bad fan fiction. story all over

I enjoyed Morte, and was excited for this one. But the story was all over the place, a struggle to pay attention to, Morte became so unlikable, as did the likability of many other characters suffered. the worst part was, it felt like an awful fan fiction.

Mort(e) was great and so was this

I absolutely loved this. So many interesting characters. Nice descriptions of combat and action. Loved the audible narrator and how he distinguished the different characters. Great literary work with a great audible performance.

Good, but not as much as Morte

I liked Morte more. This was not as engaging, for some reason. Also, the narration was a bit fast, I had to decrease the speed to .9x in order to listen. Overall, not bad, but not great either. 3 stars overall.

I

Dont really think this continuation of Morte really doesn't had a function. Not complaining of logic in such a story (or I may forgotten something) but what kind of creature will be the next soldiers of the queen....

Thoroughly Enjoyed This

I love the concept of this world. Well written and we'll narrated. I'm hoping there's a 3rd book soon!
