Description

The Crazed are flesh-hungry monsters. Can civilization survive...and escape from the edge of humanity?

Three books of non-stop zombie action that audiences are calling "fresh" with "dollops of violence" to satisfy even the most discriminating post-apocalyptic fan. From an Amazon best-selling author.

Book 1: Turn - A town on the run...The Crazed wants their flesh.

Will they make it out alive? 

When a meteorite crashes to earth it catapults a small utopian town into an archaic nightmare. It's up to one man to protect them, not only from the flesh-eating monsters but also from the maniacal colonel who storms in, barking orders for immediate evacuation. Clay Dobbs is the small-town sheriff about to, unknowingly, take on the end of the world. 

When the Crazed come for your flesh, how will you survive? 

Book 2: Detour - Their escape was certain...or so they thought. 

Their survival is, and forever will be, in question. 

With the nanite epidemic out of control, Clay leads his skeleton crew head first into the aftermath. The nightmare continues as he battles both the Crazed and the rouge, as well as his own inner demons. The once small town sheriff must find order where there is no law until he encounters his near-equal at the end of the world. But, is she all that she seems? Will Clay unravel all the clues before it's too late? 

The road is a dark and chilling place. There is no time to rest if you want to survive. 

Book 3: Reversion - At the end of the world...never dismiss the unexpected. 

A surprise reunion. A forgotten friend. 

Long odds and determination reward Sheriff Clay Dobbs with a bit of what he wants most. But, he won't rest - he can't rest - not until he's dead. And he has no plans for that until he defeats the insane military general that has caused so much hardship. But, it's not as easy as he thinks, not when there's an even more neurotic psychopath standing in his way. Can Clay learn to control himself, and the undead around him? 

When the Crazed come for you, where will you hide?

I Tried...

I tried to make it through this trilogy, but I just couldn't do it. The characters are not believable, engage it too much introspection and then act irrationally. Lesbian characters seem to spontaneously switch sides with alcohol or pressure as well.
The plot is disjointed as is the dialogue. I just couldn't care about the characters and by the second book, I couldn't really care what happened. I quit at about chapter 105 and don't really have any interest in what happens to the characters or story.
Narration is OK, but some of the voices are distracting.
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Humanity's Edge

This is an interesting book to listen to the audiobook. keeps you listening in the characters and how they get on. This is a long audiobook and I have to take a break several times and listened until the end.

An honest review

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. I genuinely hate giving bad reviews ideally do. I don't want to get too much into detail, because I don't want to spoil anything later in the story. If the things I had issues with are things that your fine with then its not a horrid book. But this seemingly hit on about 3/4 of my pet peeves. With that said here's my honest review.

Positives

The author does explain some of the things I disliked happened.

It has good pacing.

The narrator did a pretty decent job.


Cons
So at the beginning I had to force myself to keep the book going. From the author saying that military hair cuts are Nazi cuts to a fist sized meteor not turning everything in an area to paste. The author at the end of book 1 and beginning of book 2 tries to explain a bit of it. But there was just so much to not like. By the time I got to that point I was barely able to keep the book going. And that sums up a lot of my feelings about the book. There was just so many little things that made me go wait what. More than once I had to skip back because I thought I had missed something because the sheriff would go from average guy to rage monster. Again it was sort of explained at the beginning of the second book why this happens. But by that point I was of the opinion that the author had such horrible characterization that none of the characters were redeemable.

One character is a lesbian and it doesn’t seem natural. I know lesbians, I know gays. In general they are normal people who just happen to be attracted to the same sex. I don’t know if the author has never been around someone who is gay. But it just constantly came across as stilted.

Every single interaction with the military seems like the author is trying to beat you over the head with every member of the military is a sociopath that barely controls himself. And never has any interaction with females that doesn’t come across as they are about to physically maul them. There are bad apples and there are also really bright shining stars of human integrity. Pretty much like they are normal people. Because they are.

On the military... in this small town that everyone knows everyone, that also somehow has a nightlife, 4 bars and a hospital. Everyone hates the military, which isn't common. In small towns generally, you know someone or are related to someone who is or was military. And everyone in this town actively hates the military, with gusto. Even the older people who would have had like a father that was in WW2 and brothers in Vietnam.

Random yelling?!?

Half of the book was great and the other half felt like someone was randomly yelling from my neighbors backyard. Seemed like there was a lot of over explaining of how a character felt. For example when the main character was able to hear what was going on in a zombies mind. There was about 5 or 6 times in the book that I almost stopped listening but I’m not that person that stops when he started something but man did I consider it.

Childish preteen

Title says how I feel. I regrets the credit waste. The performance was most annoying and the story was accidentally preteen horror

If you like end of the world genera, pick this up!

In some ways it's a typical apocalyptic book and then by book 3 the srory takes a different and interesting turn. Not wanting to give anything away, but the author's view on voices in one's head and the narrator's performance was amazing and disturbing at the same time.

Humanity's Edge

I didn't hate this book series.I also didn't really like it.It is middle of the road sort of zombie apocolypse.The characters never grew on me. Narration by Wayne Mitchell was ok. Ralph and Brandon sounded like stoners. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

Top class post apoc

Humanity's Edge: The Complete Trilogy ' Great "zombie" entertainment. A real good read.
Lots of blood and gore, corrupt politicians & military.
As a trilogy in one audio book it is long but that also makes it exceedingly good value.

Not for me

Couldn't finish it unfortunately. Didn't come close. Performance and content is subpar. I just could not get into this one.

End of the world with zombies, sort of

Overall I though the story was pretty good, but there were some holes that left me wondering if I missed something. Too much was left unsaid or answers appear to have been pulled out of a magic hat. There were great elements which should have been fleshed out more but were stitched together leaving it feel like a rushed project. The narrator did a decent job except that almost every female had a bit of a nasally "Oh my God" sound to her voice that was not only irritating but made it had to determine who was speaking at times.
