Endworld #1: Fox Run based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A very "popcorn" book about a group of warriors and survivors after the apocalypse. The book was painful at times in audio form with a bunch of "he said" statements when the voice actor was doing a fine job distinguishing the characters by voice. Overall it was very good to keep me awake for long drives and was an action movie in book format.
A solid addition to the post apocalypse genre with interesting characters, unique world but slightly generic plot but helps set up for grander schemes and future endeavors. This is a continuation of Endworld: Doomsday; 100 years later and descendents are trying to survive and thrive. I enjoyed the first book alot but was sad when learned about the time lapse; would have liked to have read more about original Family and Home but still enjoyable ride with future generations. Don't have to read first Endworld to fully appreciate Fox Run but helps. The Alpha Triad of Blade, Hickock and Geronimo are an excellent driving force in narration and character development. Each presents their own archetype with their own unique differences/qualities which ensures something for everyone. Good dialogue chemistry helps move along the action so books gets hard to put down after while. The Endworld universe is an interesting take on nuclear holocaust with usual mutants and scavengers. Greatly enjoyed the Home and its system of operation with the idea of different job classes and naming ritual which adds an almost mythic tone to proceedings. The action/violence is plentiful and well written combining gun/knife right along side hand-to-hand throughout each different characters and seeing them react/respond helps the pace and overall variety to the story. The author has numerous stories/missions lined up in Endworld; some of which are hinted at (Twin Cities, Watchers?) so can forgive my only real flaw with book which is that it was too short. :) Overall; cool characters, quick dialogue and amazing surroundings help make this a welcome read.
