the land of falling stars Reviews
I received a copy from the author/narrator in exchange for an honest review. This was my first foray into Troy Hallewell's After Civilisation series and I enjoyed it for the most part. It was just two sections long and the story was well told. It had a fair bit of depth for an hour and a quarter's worth of listening but for me it was spoiled by the music and singer between the sections. This is just a personal preference for my audiobooks to be all narration as I like to hear it the way I would read it without musical interruptions (also the reason I marked it down to 3*). If you have already read RazorWire: After Civilization, Book 1 you will have already met the main character as this is a short story told from when he is still a young boy. I know I will be getting an audio copy of RazorWire as soon as I have credits to spare :D
(Format: Audiobook)"What are you doin', boy? Run."More than a hundred years after the fall of civilisation, a fourteen year old boy stands alone in the desert, the Waste. More than a year has passed since he was sold into slavery for a handful of bullets but he escaped and now tries to survive and search for his mother. He traps rabbits for food and for clothes. But tonight he is hungry. Then he comes across two men, one big and one small, with a fire and the sweet smell of cooking meat and is invited to join them in exchange for a secret...This delightful short story, written and narrated by Troy Hallewell, is a prequel to the imaginative After Civilisation series. Rock survives the harsh Wasteland and is one of the main protagonists in the first book, Razorwire. This story gives the reader insights into how the man was formed and how he came to own dragon skin armour
A Futuristic Tale with a Western Flare..This short story is about how the main character, Rock, at the age of Fourteen, came across his Dragon Skin Armor. Rock was sold into slavery for bullets, however, he escaped and began a search for his mother.One evening he comes across two men, and the smell of cooking food. I don't want to give too much away about the story line.The Land of Falling Stars, is the prequel to "RazorWire: After Civilization".Overall, this was a quick read with a Futuristic Western Flare..Troy Hallewell did well with the narration, only a bonus that he is the author.Note:"This audio book was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review."
This is a quick read to set the stage for RazorWire. If you're a fan of The Book of Eli or the Deathlands series, there's a lot here to enjoy. Short and poignant, it pulls the reader on to the next in the series to see what kind of man Rock grows into.I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
I did not want to leave this interesting universe and this story gave me a great excuse to keep reading. It was interesting to see a serious situation from a character we already know and yet to see him as vulnerable as he was. Some parts of the narrative surprised me nut did not stop me from reading. I waned to know how it will end and was interested throughout.
