I love everything about this series

Breakers starts as an outbreak story, then becomes a post-apocalyptic survival story, then an alien invasion story, then a war story. I'm a sucker for several of those story archetypes, so this is right up my alley, but Breakers transcends all that by being something more. Breakers is about people, both human and alien people, finding a way to keep going despite the odds against them. It starts with discrete groups of people in different places, but Robertson weaves their stories together, so that it keeps coming back to some of the key players. It was like meeting up with old friends every time he'd come back to folks I hadn't heard from in a novel or two. The characters are whole, flawed beings, and Robertson spent enough time on them to make them real, something that some authors don't do. I didn't love the narrator at first. A little too gruff and dramatic, but he grew on me, probably because I loved the story so much that I started associating his voice with something I loved. The series ends beautifully, with wistfulness and hope, and it left me in tears. Thank you, Mr. Robertson.

A riveting finale for the Breakers series

As this book concludes, one can only be fascinated by the possible centuries-later sequels that might be ahead. As an avid reader, I'm enthralled by the thought.

As for this finale, it pulls together all the surviving lead characters of the series and weaves their lives, their adventures and their conflicts into a can't-put-it-down tale.

As always, Raina is a fascinating mix of cunning animal and an increasingly perceptive young woman. Walt remains Mr. Grit and incredibly also Mr. Luck. Mauser stands fast as an ineloquent but wise second and Ness and Sebastian remain the most unlikely but loyal pair of friends I've encountered in 6+decades or reading science fiction.

FASCINATING SERIES

I got started on this series as deal of the day, 1st 3 books in one. I am so glad Audible does this or I'd have missed this series, It's great from start to finish- love the world the author created. Good story about human perseverance and life going on during a major world crisis. Narrator does a great job, so glad he did all the books.Loved the characters !

Great ending

Throughout the series I’ve had mixed feelings. Some additions were great, others so so. I thought this ending was great. I liked the twists and turns and coming together of the main characters. The story line felt realistic not just everything comes up roses. The story line reminded me of many shows I’ve watched but that did not detract from it at all.

An ending that sets a new standard for sci-fi...

What a terrific series ending finale! Loss, redemption, resilience, forgiveness, regret, hope, encouragement, love, and acceptance from front to back.All the major characters are brought together for one last battle to outshine the others! In Nt he slight chance that this series is ever brought to tv (I think the production team behind Walking Dead would be perfect..definitely AMC) then fans worldwide would drop all other plans and geek out while sharing the love of the mythos. Ray Chase delivers again (his Mauser is reminds me of Hugh Jackman for some reason), if theres a Noblel for audio books then he's a shoo-in...Im spreading the word of this series everywhere, I LOOOVE IT.

Exciting End to An Imaginative Saga

I got the first 3 books in the 9 book Breakers series as a bundle and have enjoyed every minute of every book. Many threads of a world gripping viral invasion, each with its own location, multi dimensional characters and their challenges, woven together into a huge story that carries you along over more than 6 years of life on earth. Wonderful narration helps further create dimensions in the characters as they grow and develop through each book. I have to say that I'll miss these people.

Edward you've done it again!!!!

I've listened to several of your books. And I love your style buddy. I love to read, but I work sometimes 14 hours a day. Listening gives me pleasure and your worlds you have created are rich, funny and entertaining. Please keep up the good work.

Interesting end to an amazing series

I loved the whole Breakers series, because it is really different from other books in my opinion. This last audio book of the series brought it to a moving end. Considering how much story was packed into the other books the end did feel a bit on the short side though. I don't want to spoil what happens, but I would have wished for a bit more at the very end.
