About the Author

Born in 1968, I discovered fishing shortly after walking, a boon, considering I lived in South Florida. After a brief move to Kentucky, my family trekked back to the Sunshine State. I had the good fortune to attend high school in idyllic upstate New York, where I learned about a mythical occurrence known in Florida as "seasons". After two or three failed attempts at college, I bought a bar. That was fun because I love beer, but, then, I eventually met someone smarter than me (a common event), and, in this case, she married me and convinced me to go back to school--which I did, with enthusiasm. I earned a Master's Degree in History and rediscovered my love for writing.
I live near Nashville, Tennessee, with the aforementioned wife, son, and herd, and, when I'm not writing, I teach history, grow wildly enthusiastic tomato plants, and restore my 1967 Mustang.

As you may know post-apocalyptic audiobooks with or without zombies, but especially with, are all the rage or maybe they are just getting more coverage these days. Terry Maggert has decided to jump in the flow of the raging river of destruction of the earth and human perseverance. Yet he was able to spin it in a way that I have not seen before. No zombies. Instead dragons and demons. Sounds so exciting right! Demons rise from the bowels of hell destroying all that humanity has built. Then, as if that wasn’t enough, dragons rise from their hiding places to help defend humanity. We are told various eye witness accounts in documentary style throughout the story. Giving a great insight into the war that ensued that the characters along would not have given us. While it was fascinating that Maggert ventured into the biology of the life that was left in the world, I found it tedious at times. Even though I loved that idea of what life became. Even though it has been a long long time since I read anything from the world of Pernn, a place that Maggert obviously has a more recent experience with. He was able to pay homage to the classic while creating something of his own. Because in its simplest form here we have the Dragon Rides of Pernn fighting hell on earth. I applaud Maggert for doing something unexpected and unusual while keep some basic familiarity. If you have become board with all of the similar apocalyptic stories out there, Banshee could be quite refreshing to you. If all you want is a dark fantasy, you will find that here as well. This was my first time listening to Henry McNulty. He has a very deep voice and a fast speaking pace. I found it difficult at times to follow what he was saying because of the speed that he was going. Do you know what I mean when I say that certain narrators connect with the listeners? Well, unfortunately MCnulty and I did not connect. When I do not connect to a narrator, my mind wonders and my attention fades. However, he has some great characterizations that really helped immerse me into the fantastical world that Maggert created. Audiobook provided for review by the author.

I loved this book! The dragons were fantastic, their descriptions thorough and inspiring, and the monsters were beyond even my worst nightmares. I thought the plot was wonderful, with a quick pace to keep one turning pages until the wee hours of the morning. The characters were well fleshed out, both the good guys, and the obnoxious protagonists concerned only with themselves. Might be a bit scary for the younger crowd, but I'd recommend for the Teen+ fantasy enthusiasts.
