    Description

    Man's Best Friend

    Almost a year after Rick walked back into Tina's life, they find themselves at a virtual crossroads. It's time for Rick to meet Tina's family. Opus has healed from his gunshot, though he's a little older and slightly slower.

    Setting out to meet the parents becomes an epic adventure in Rick and Tina's mind. Because of timing, they decide to road trip across the USA. Tina chronicles their experiences with a camera and Facebook Live videos while interviewing Rick.

    Cryptic and threatening messages keep turning up, bad luck follows the couple on their trek across the country. To make matters worse, Rick fears a cyber breach, and somebody from both of their pasts is released from prison.

    Watching over them, one dog, who's used to protecting the humans he owns. Opus. He is happily along for the ride to make sure they don't do anything they would regret, but when the fur starts to fly, he comes out of retirement.

    When the bullets start buzzing through the air, and a mad dash across a desert landscape ends them up slightly lost, it'll take Rick, Tina, and Opus to work in concert to survive the ordeal. Unfortunately, that isn't the worst of it.

    They find themselves alone, cut off, stuck in the desert without their preps, hunted by a madman with no fear of death. Can the trio survive?

    A Prepper-Thriller (if that's a thing)

    When I found out that Craven was writing a continuation of the first book in this series I was excited.  And then I found out that Kevin Pierce was going to narrate the audiobook I was thrilled.

    The Opus' storyline isn't one of a typical post-apocalyptic book.  There isn't an apocalypse to speak of, but it is about a prepper and the prepper lifestyle (and how it can help you in everyday life).  Opus Odyssey is a great example of that.  I would call this a prepper book first but then a thriller second.  It was totally different than most of the books that I read and I loved it for it. 

    Opus Odyssey tells the story of a cross-country trip to PrepperCon.  Along the way, Tina is live streaming and providing social media updates to all of Rick's fans online.  They are showing their routes and what they are doing as they meander their way across the country.  Unfortunately, not everyone is a fan. 

    The story itself was great, I found myself riveted throughout.  I didn't realize this was going to combine my favorite parts of the first story and throw in some mystery and thriller aspects that I enjoy.  It really took me for a ride. 

    If you read the first book, you know that there are three main characters: Tina, Rick, and Opus.  Opus is the best of these three.  His personality is by far my favorite and reminds me of my dog (and other dogs I've met in life).  Able to "answer" with different huffs and chuffs. All three have been set up well in the first book and then continued in Odyssey. (If you haven't read the first book in this series, check it out before jumping into this one).  I, once again, appreciated the self-depreciation and introspection into the life of a self-published author in Rick.  Those scenes were still some of my favorites. 

    But, overall, if you like a good thriller then this book is for you.  If you're a prepper or like to think that one is none and two is one, then Opus Odyssey is for you.

    I was voluntarily provided with a free copy of this book which has not affected my review in any way.

    Awesome sequel

    Excellent sequel to the original story. It was nice to have more background on the main characters and at the same time a whole new story. 👍👍

    A Survival Story

    This is a great book. It continues with Rick and Tina's relationship. It is the type of book that you get wrapped up in and can relate to. It's like the first book it reminds me of my past dogs. This is the second book and it makes you want to get the next book. It's not overboard it's more believable. It's well worth buying. Kevin Pierce does an excellent job narraiting this book. If my review was any help will you please click the helpful link. Thank you

    Not what expected

    I am not one to give negative reviews, but this 2nd book is a huge disappointment.

    I am an Apocalypse Survival aficionado, and have enjoyed Boyd Cravens other books, but I am not interested in reading about someone's vacation events. What a let down. I couldn't get beyond chapter 12. I'm done.
    If it wasn't for the dog, I would've read that more.

    Great ideas

    Fell in love with Opus. Makes me wonder what my dog is thinking. Left me wanting more.

    Excellent sequel....leaves me wanting more

    Excellent sequel. As a dog owner I found myself thinking about my dog and her actions. I hope that Boyd continues this series as it has already setup for several books that could be done. The adventures of Opus and Ophelia!

    great story!!!

    Loved the way this story was narrated. Would be ecstatic to see more chapters from Opus' point of view. Romance, adventure and laughter... great combination. Can't wait for the next chapter on this story!

    Great story...

    I really enjoyed the story and the fact that Opus had a perspective on the situation. Refreshing and different. A fresh escape from the "all to repeated" post apocalyptic story lines these days. If you write a book three I will definitely read (or listen) to it.
