After book 2 which I found to be pretty poor I was undecided if I should go for Halifax. In the end Im glad I did. Its not that book 2 did not have its good parts, but it was the constant repitition that at times made it unbearable. Some editing would make it a much better book. This book, Halifax,, thankfully suffered less from repitition but could have still done with some more editing to cut out some of the dead wood. Having said that its a good story that rolls along at a pace, with some very good characterisation.

much better than expected!
What did you love best about Hellifax?
the palpable tension in parts of the story.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Hellifax?
there were several memorable moments, but i can't say without spoiling parts of the story. but i did find myself cheering for somebody unexpected. 'nuff said!
What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
r.c. bray is the man! he can do all sorts of voices, from a regular joe to deep and gravely to a confident, young girl to a great canadian accent.
Who was the most memorable character of Hellifax and why?
tenner definitely gets more developed, but i'd have to say amy. who is she? listen to the book to find out!
Any additional comments?
at first, i wasn't to sure about this story. i liked scott's character from book 1, but i wasn't sure if he could carry a story bby himself, without gus. also, i wasn't sure if a whole 12 hour story about hunting for a serial killer would be that interesting. so if you're wondering the same things, then let me put those worries to rest. this is another great story.
as the story opens, scott is traveling to hellifax in search of tenner, the serial killer who brutally tortured and killed his 2 friends and mistakenly left him for dead. there's one problem though- a blizzard. the snow is really piling up, and scott must find a suitable place to hole up before he and his suv get stuck.
the beginning is kind of slow. tenner lures somebody to their death. at first, i thought it was just another torture scene, but that person's death plays a pivotal role in the direction of the plot later in the book. throughout the story, parts of the story are told from tenner's point of view. these are like short vignettes, and i enjoyed them.
there's also another group introduced in the beginning. they call themselves the norsemen. they are a hardened group of men ordered to head east to find out what's going on and to look for supplies. like tenner, i wasn't to sure about them, but their story is woven nicely into the overall arch of the story.
i must say the author has once again done a good job of creating a lot of tension in certain parts of the story. i was actually holding my breath in parts, trying not to make to much noise as i listened. LOL no, i won't spoil your listening experience and tell you what was happening. but it does involve scott meeting a girl named amy at the most inopportune time!
once the story starts to pick up, it moves quickly to end. yes, the ending is a little sad but satisfying. the author nicely wraps up the major plot lines, and you don't get the feeling that the author rushed to finish things. i would say the pacing is excellent. at the end, there is a possibility of another book, but if not, the story definitely wrapped up in a satisfying way!
overall, i highly recommend this book! it could be read as a standalone book, but i really enjoyed it as the 3rd and final? book.

Now we're talking!
Great story, has everything. Scott takes off on his mission to find the sociopath that murdered his friends. There are cannibal raiders, a hot chick, a whole new group of people and a big plot line with different parts weaved together, and its 12 hrs long! Woot! I couldn't put my headphones down :) Can't wait for book 4, "Well Fed". Ok, but narrator, when you speak, you say Tennor, when you speak for them, they say Tanner. Hmm.
