Good but not enough
This is an excellent series of books but they should be packaged together as it effectively just one story and each book doesn’t include enough to warrant the use of one credit.
As usual the narration is excellent and I will move on to the next instalment!!

A Mid-Series Scene Setter
I’m sorry Michael Fuchs but it’s now official, you need to be locked away and never let out again. No more wasting time on recreation and spending time with family and friends you need to be working 24/7 on new books for this series. R C Bray we can let out on license in between recording sessions but only if he promises not to the leave the country. This series is a REAL guilty pleasure and the fact that the adrenalin has kept flowing for so many books and I still look forwards to each new one coming out tells me all I need to know about it. So sorry Michael / RC you need to accept responsibility for creating my addiction!
That said, in truth this one isn’t quite the same high-octane, non-stop action that most of the books in the series have managed to deliver. It does take a while to get going, relatively speaking, and when the action does start it occasionally feels a bit choppy as it switches from London to Africa with occasional visits to Russia thrown in. It was still good though and I certainly get the feeling that the next book will be a real blast given the scenes that have been set.
It’s worth noting that the last half hour of the book is in fact a taster of the next in the series. I didn’t listen to it this time, I suspect that the pace of that one will be frenetic and I don’t want to get into the first half hour just to have to wait a few months to get my next fix.
So, although Cataclysm is not the very best in the series it is still damn good and clearly sets things up to follow in epic fashion. If you’ve not read the series then much better to start at the beginning and believe me it’s a hell of a ride.

Awesome book but...
Another awesome book in the series but I really wish the author would advance the storyline more and stop jumping all over the place tell the story from multiple points of view and just stick to telling it from team alpha's point of view, they are the only reason I keep buying the books to see what they face next.

Does absolutely nothing to advance the story.
This entire book could have been easily condensed and added to the next book in the series. On its own it does nothing at all to advance the story of the Arisen series. Everything is more or less as it was at the end of the book as it was at the start. Considering how book 8.5 ended this is especially disappointing.
R.C. does an amazing job as usual.
