Description

Warning: May contain Egyptian gods, werewolves, power armor, and a world-ending apocalypse

A pyramid predating all known cultures appears without warning. Its discovery throws into question everything we know about the origins of mankind.

Inside lies incredible technology, proof of a culture far more advanced than our own. Something dark lurks within, eager to resume a war as old as mankind. When it is unleashed, it heralds the end of our species' reign.

A plague of werewolves spreads across the world. A sunspot larger than anything in recorded history begins to grow. Yet both pale in comparison to the true threat, the evil the werewolves were created to fight.

"It's like Indiana Jones went through the Stargate and ended up in Aliens versus Predator." - One of the author's totally biased friends

This collection gathers No Such Thing As Werewolves, No Mere Zombie, Vampires Don't Sparkle, and The First Ark.

A little different

I bought this because it was a good price for 3 books. Started out a little slow and almost gave up. Glad I stuck with it because once it got going it got great.
The author did a great job with the plot and people. The reader... what to say? I could tell what character he was doing with no problem. Never heard a book read by him, so now I have to see what else he read.
Give this book a shot, I am only about half way through the second book and am enjoying it so very much

Same mistakes as other writers

I got halfway through the third book before my BS meter maxed out and I had to turn it off. YOU CANT HAVE CHARACTERS WHO ARE POWERFUL, VICTORS OF AGES OF STRUGGLE - and DUMB AS A BOX OF ROCKS. It always kills a good story with characters who are truly likeable when the author is determined to strain my ability to believe they could be so stupid.

You want fun? You got fun! Because...werewolves!

Would you listen to Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella again? Why?

I love the theme of werewolves and zombies. Also, I'm an avid player of a specific RPG chain about werewolves and this feels like a game I've played in for that.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't feel I can pick any one character, because it's the composite whole of the series I love. It's a little campy, a lot rompy, full of Indiana Jones hijinks meets Resident Evil. So my favorite character isn't an actual character within the book, but the character of the series- it's just amazingly fun!

Have you listened to any of Ryan Kennard Burke’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I'm going to look this fellow up for more work!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I were the type to listen to it in one sitting, I would; but by and large I use audio books to reward myself for doing things that need to get doing- I listen to it to clean, to work out, all sorts of drudgery necessities. This series did accomplish that.

Any additional comments?

I'm not going to say this is the most spot-on, well-composed piece of work ever. It's not. But quite frankly, I don't want something that is so entrenched in layers of meaning and profound depth- and if I do, I'll go log into one of a number of online college courses on literature that are available. What I love, love, LOVE is anything involving shapeshifters. I love Indiana-Jones-style hijinks. I love fighting to save the world. I love RPGs, which this book series feels so very much akin to a chain of RPG books that I play dedicated to that monster type, that it just.. hits so many happy points in my world. I read/listen to audio books to be entertained, to be caught up in a story...and this does it and with a smile on my face. Also, the author is so invested in his readership! I am so impressed. Put it this way- I already had book one and two purchased in my audio library, and I just went ahead and put in the credit to get the full series AGAIN, and I posted about it to my friends on social media (one of which I'm pretty sure has already purchased it). I cannot emphasize it enough- if you want to have fun, a really good enjoyable fun read, get this series. It's like a Snickers bar- it may not be chock full of nutritious value to make you think upon for hours and hours, but it will absolutely make you happy and leave you satisfied and wanting more. SUPPORT THIS AUTHOR! GIVE US MORE!

A great unexpected series and unique premise.

Where does Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top quarter. I really didn't expect this book to be such a great listen.

What other book might you compare Deathless Collection: Books 1-3 and the Prequel Novella to and why?

If you like series like Adrians Undead Diaries or any of Mark Tufo's books you'll love this.
As a fan of undead fiction then I suggest you give this a chance. Its such an unusual combinations of elements that work perfectly together.

Which scene was your favorite?

When it became clear that Werewolves, a high profile and socially relevant disease and solar flares all had a place in the unfolding zombie apocalypse.

Any additional comments?

I set out listening to this series with a nagging expectation that I was going to return it. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great tale and great performance.Obviously, if you aren't into this style of fiction you wont like it but if you are, I'd suggest giving this one a try and I think you'll be surprised.

A wicked fun story!

This is an epic book series that really draws you into to an amazing world of werewolves, zombies, and vampires and the myths behind their creation/existence. But make no mistake this is not you typical mythos about them. This is a well thought out well planned story that grabs you by the throat and keeps you asking for more. If you like books like Monster Hunter then this series is right up your alley. I guarantee it!

Better than Expected

This was a chance taker. I wasn't familiar with the writer on his works. But it was surprisingly good. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I loved this new take on mythological characters. The writing is descriptive and moves along at a great pace. Character wise, there are many but all of them have a central role to play. Some of the plot and twist get you looking forward to the next. While others are see-through glass. All in all I would tell anyone who is looking for something different this is the book for them.

B movie meets anime characters

I hadn't read a good zombie apocalypse book in quite some time and unfortunately that's still true. I was willing to suspend my disbelief at a werewolf plague and then at their misunderstood role as heroes, but the characters were all two dimensional and their progression seemed to follow a Dragonball Z formula. Protagonist is weak and gets dominated by enemy, somehow lives and is now super strong. Then he meets next enemy, is dominated, comes back super strong. Rinse and repeat. Sadly, I had to admit to myself that the novelty of werewolf - undead battles weren't enough to hold my attention to the end.

Recommend it!

It's hard to recommend this book without giving away all of the surprise plot twists, so I'm going to just say that if you did a mashup of Indiana Jones, Underworld, and Night of the Living Dead, you might come close to capturing the awesomeness that is the Deathless series. It's such a divergence from mainstream, yet hits all of the right buttons. When I was finished listening to the longest audiobook I've ever read, my first thought was, wait, it's over? 40 plus hours of awesome!

Amazing series!

I've read just about everything i have come across that pertains to werewolves and vapires. Just when you think that all available plots have been explored you run into a series like this!
