Overview

A Shrouded World - Whistlers by Mark Tufo, John O'Brien

When two worlds collide...

Jack Walker and Michael Talbot come from two worlds; the same, yet different. They both find themselves transported into an alien one, where things aren't as they seem. While it appears similar to the ones they come from, there are some terrifying differences. Is it a dream? Or has reality been somehow warped?

Jack comes from a world filled with nocturnal creatures that were once human, but now seek to destroy the last vestiges of humanity. Mike, living under a constant threat from hordes of the undead, arrives with a companion, John the Tripper. Ripped away from their family members and thrown into the unknown, they find that the nightmares from their worlds have preceded them. Survival becomes moment to moment as they encounter old dangers, and new.

Each wants nothing more than to be reunited with their loved ones. With dangers lurking around every corner, they seek to unravel the mystery that brought them. It may be a long road ahead, but they begin by taking the first step, hoping the next one will be the one that takes them home.

Another winner from Mark Tufo. Following Mike Talbots zombie (and lycan) adventures are always fun. I have never read anything from O''Brien previously but will check out his series as well. Hope for more...

I liked this book. In order to fully appreciate this book, it's helpful to know the backstories on the characters. If you are familiar with Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series you will appreciate this addition.

Didn't know what to expect when two writers co-author a book. Doesn't always work but it sure worked this time. Can't wait to jump into the second book in this series.

Very easy to follow as two different character join forces to fight and survive in a world that has a survival rate of zero. Getting ready to read the next book in this series, A Shrouded World: Atlantis.

When you put two awesome authors (Mark Tufo and John O'Brien) together writing on zombies and alternate realities, you find yourself in A Shrouded World! This is book one of a series and you find Mike Talbot, our fun-loving, all-around Bad Luck guy, trapped in a world with Trip! Of all people! The world seems like home, but completely different and they seem to be the only ones... until John runs across their path- or into it! You will enjoy a new take on an old subject: Zombies! This was an audiobook and the awesome narrator, Sean Runnette tells this one in Mike's voice. It's great, but sadly, when John tells his side of the story, they're very much alike. It make the transition a bit off every now and then, but it didn't hurt the story one bit! Check it out! For the full review on this and book 2, http://bit.ly/1PqhIs7

I've read both authors series and believe Mark Tufo to be a much better writer than John O'brien. Tufo writes with solid plots and a lot of humor (his trip to Mcdonalds in particular).O'briens novels are full of holes And they show through in this novel

A Shrouded World – Whistlers follows the survival story of Jack Walker and Michael Talbot (with his companion John the Tripper) as they navigate a new zombie apocalypse world, different from each of their own. Trapped in this new world they have to find a way to stay alive as unique types of zombie threaten them. A zombie apocalypse novel, it’s different from what little I have seen before. Most stories that I’ve read or seen involved one type of zombie creature. However, in this novel, there are multiple unique zombie types with different strengths and weaknesses. The plot itself was pretty simple in the sense that the characters are trying to survive different dangers, but they don’t actually move much distance in the world. And so the story is dependent on the characters’ personalities. Fortunately, all three were well defined and unique, which made their interactions fun to experience. Jack and Michael are military men, and John is a perpetually high hippie. John is clearly the comic relief in the novel, but there are hints to his importance that may come to light in future novels. However, the dependence on one or two characters perspectives in a novel involving three human characters, made my interest lag sometimes. While the inner monologues were often good, I think more dialogue could have made it more dynamic. It’s clear that this is a first novel of many. While the book comes to an end, it’s more like coming to an end of a section of to a novel rather than an entire novel. It’s clear that there is more to come and at the end of the novel, the hanging threads are laid out clearly. This novel is told from two different points of view, Michael and Jack. One aspect of the novel, which takes a little getting used to, is that the voices of Jack Walker and Michael are different tenses. It’s unusual and doesn’t necessarily distract, but it’s noticeable. It’s an interesting complement to the confused and isolated emotions that the characters are feeling in a new, but still somewhat familiar world. The narration was nuanced and wonderful. The characters were easily distinguished from one another through the tone of the narrator and that made the novel easy to follow and experience. This was especially great when there are multiple points of view. The voices ascribed to the different characters were also fitting to the individual styles of speech. This isn’t a genre that I normally choose to read and I enjoyed the novel. However, I think it could’ve been improved with more characters. Female perspectives or characters would have made it more diverse and perhaps a little more dynamic. Audiobook provided for review by the author.

Fullfilled expectations. I have read Tufo and O'brien's complete works. I hope to see another "Shrouded World entry soon.

Very disjointed story that really needed an editor. Some chapters sounded as if they were written by a 3rd grader. Sorry attempts at humor ruin many scenes. The Remaining by DJ Molles is soooo much better than this garbage.
