Summary

The Weller is back!

Still healing from his battle with the distillers in Iowa City, legendary weller Matt Freeborn crosses into Missouri, where foes both old and new await him. Finding himself dangerously low on precious ammunition for the Well Digger, the desperate weller accepts a perilous job on the mighty Mississippi. Armed with only his wits and experience, Freeborn must descend into places no man dares go and face unknown terrors that hunger and hunt in absolute darkness.

From the author of Vengeance for My Valentine and War of The Worlds: Goliath!

Another excellent piece by Adam J. Whitlach

The story was amazing and stayed true to the Weller series. The voice acting was also done very well and loved the echo effects added in the cave scenes.

Great writing and great narration

All the tools are there. The writer clearly has talent with well-written scenes and the makings of a pretty elaborate world. The narrator is very dynamic with character voices. The concept is unique -- never heard of a weller before. The story had a science fiction vibe to it.

The main character found himself in a series of situations, but was never in doubt that he would survive somehow. And he seemed to just wander through the story line as a sequence of events vs any kind of greater plot taking place. I'd prefer some sense of purpose in each book if I were to continue the series.

I'll definitely keep an eye out for this author and this narrator. Both are really good.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great story.

This was the first time listening to a Weller book. I enjoyed it enough to purchase the rest. I look forward to seeing what misfortunes Matt Freeborn get himself into. Thanks to Zachary Johnson for the review copy.

This could/should be a movie!

I really enjoyed this. It’s a fresh take on a post apocalyptic world. Main character is enjoyable and fun.

The use of real world locations, places I’ve heard of or live near, it’s also very enjoyable.

I also felt the way it was organized, the chapter breaks, would make it an ideal movie/TV show/made for TV movie.
I have read/listen to his other books and it’s potential for a scyfi miniseries at the minimum.

If it looking for a different take on the future, then give this one a shot.
It’s like a refreshing splash of water across your face. Pun intended.
