Summary

Small town reporter Mia Durante finds herself having brunch with the President of the United States on the day civilization comes to an end.

An electromagnetic pulse blinds the U.S. Cars crash. Planes fall. Chaos reigns. Power is restored within minutes, but it’s already too late. Russian nukes are falling. U.S. allies around the world are already wiped out. The United States will cease to exist inside of five minutes.

After giving the order to launch a full-scale retaliation–dooming the planet–the president, his staff, Secret Service and those lucky enough to be visiting the White House, are whisked below ground, where they board several Earth Escape Pods. As the EEPs launch into Earth orbit, missiles descend.

Less than forty survive the end of the world. When they return, they’re greeted by survivors of a different sort. The bloodbath that follows leaves Durante and nine other survivors on the run. They find themselves fighting for survival in a world in which only torment remains and where death is the only escape.

Torment is award-winning author Jeremy Robinson’s first pulse-pounding horror novel (originally penned under his Jeremy Bishop pseudonym). It's a horrific tale of post-apocalyptic terror that is one part zombie story and one part Dante’s Inferno. The story asks hard questions and generates strong emotions in everyone who listens to it—anger, excitement, and most of all: fear. This book asks the question that everyone is afraid to answer: are you ready?

excellent as always

Another amazing story by the author and expertly read by the narrator. A grim story which kept me gripped to the end.

Not my favourite

I’ve loved everyone of Jeremy Robinson’s books so far but this book was sadly disappointing & depressing .

outstanding...

I didn't read ifirst time round so can't comment on the narration, but obviously the story is the same ...gripping from the start with an unusual understated narration from 'THE KING'...he deserves his ferrari, penthouse and 10 million in the bank...
anyone who gives this 1 star is deaf...
I highly recommend ROBOT GENETICISTS...(6 books for 1 credit)

what a ride!

I literally love Jeremy Robinson, I have been devouring his books for the last 6 months, And the narration by R.C. Bray as always is phenomenal.

TORMEMENT is brilliant, anyone that says otherwise obviously struggled the different themes of the book. I'm currently reading the infinite time line and this book definitely needed to be re-released as the tormented feature so often. Bring on Khaos!

Refreshing take on old themes.

I spoiled it for myself somewhat due to infinite series, but it still had a bunch of disturbing surprises in it.

I'm not typically a fan of any kinda zombie horror. It's all been done to death. But I really enjoyed this refreshing take on it all the same.

I don't understand why anyone would give this 1 star.

The ending was perfection.

One of the worst books I have listened to.

I carried on listening in the hope that it would get better but Noooo. Probably the worst book I’ve listened to. I haven’t a clue what it was about.

Interesting

This was one that I couldn’t stop listening to. It goes without saying RC Bray is the best in the industry! This is first Robinson audible that scared me just a little listening to at night! Interested to see how this story will fit into the timeline and which character we may hear from again!

zombies with a twist!!

the ending is always so conflicting, but I think its one of the great things about books like these...it leave the reader to really go back and relive the book start to finish and question so much!

if this wasn't a book you enjoyed, i strongly recommend trying one of his newer ones. They're wonderful books that hold, comedy, romance and so much action! he always leave the reader craving more!
the dark is by far one of his best books in my opinion and all of his recent books have a very similar vibe.
and I promise you after you've read one of his recent books, you're gonna read another and another and another lol.

honestly you can skip this one

I finished this book and I have to say I am sad that I did. it's a thinly veiled christianic apocalypse bull. I'm serious what I say the most horrible people in this God damn story get to live because they say words... like seriously I'm going to get my money back for this goddamn book that's how bad it is. this coming from somebody who's read at least eight different Jeremy Robinson books, I enjoyed every single one of his books save one . this one.

A Fine Author’s Worst Book

Jeremy Robinson has written lots of good books. This isn’t one of them. Originally published under a pseudonym, he has bravely decided to put it out under his own name. Brave isn’t the same as smart. I would only recommend this to a literary student looking to see how much an author can improve over time. If that’s not you, give it a miss.

Another Epic Ending!

Simply put, this is a great book; as always, RC Bray rocks. Horror is not my genre, but the Infinite timeline is, and I needed the whole overall experience. This book is thought-provoking without the need for typical theological debates. If you’re like me, you will not be sure how to feel after listening to this book. I say let it soak in and enjoy this addition to the timeline. JR, in my opinion, is the Master of the EPIC endings.

Wow!!!

This is my new favorite Robinson book, and that’s a very bold statement about my absolutely favorite author. I love being challenged, and JR always delivers. The way his writing leaps from a jumping off point and takes my imagination on a suspenseful, can’t-stop-listening, thought-provoking journey is unparalleled. I just finished listening, and I need to restart immediately and probably several times over. Robinson takes familiar concepts and beliefs and rearranges them in his stories so artfully, he forces you to re-examine what you know.

RC Bray is an amazing narrator! If his voice were a person, it’d be Cary Grant. Smooth, classic, and so talented. It’s always a joy to listen.

Torment

This just hasn’t worked for me. The “terror” part has been so overworked as to become ho hum, not again. I was disappointed, to say the least. The narration was superb and good enough to lift this book from one star to three.

Don’t even try and guess where it’s going

What a wild ride. Just when you think you know what direction the book is going, you get whiplashed into another, totally unexpected direction.

Once the full story takes shape, and you realize what’s going on…..the adventure just keeps on going. Very fun, exciting read/listen. Bravo JR and team!

Worst book I’ve read. Seriously.

Slight spoiler alert…

The book has plot holes a 5th grader wouldn’t make. The characters were so ridiculous that it was almost comical. One of my biggest issues was with the little girl. She loses her mother and doesn’t even seem to care? She’s an upbeat sociopath essentially. But, apparently that’s what passes for “innocence” to Jeremy Robinson as that is what she was a symbol of.

The fiancé of an accused traitor to the US is able to land a meeting with the president of the United States by simply writing an essay for her niece? Really?

This is on Audible as part of the Infinite series. But it wasn’t prt of it. Don’t be fooled. That’s just a way to get completionists like me to buy the book despite the reviews. These reviews have further convinced me that a lot of reviews on this site are fake. There is just no possibly way that many people liked it enough to maintain 4 stars.
