What did you love best about The Last Hunter - Lament?
This book, as well as the series, isn't just one big thrill ride through the subterranean realms of Antarktos. Oh, trust me...it certainly has that. It's not just that every single character seems authentic and that you grow to care about them...though this is true as well. It's not just the incredible imagination of the author to connect the myths and legends of our world to the biblical Nephelim, which he does spendidly. No, there's something else. Something you don't see very often in fantasy adventure books...it has great heart. It tugs at your emotions as you cheer for the heroes. There is a tremendous amount of emotional depth and that's what I love about this book.
FYI, if I had to pick a second thing I love best about it...I'd have to say the narration. R.C. Bray has become one of my all time favorite narrators since starting this series. He didn't let me down at all with this book.
What about R. C. Bray’s performance did you like?
Bray is going places in the world of voice over work. He's an amazing talent. He draws you into the story and a movie truly does play within your head. His ability to perform different voices and accents paints a very vivid picture of every single character in the book. As I said in the first question, he's quickly becoming one of my favorite narrators out there.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, yes, and yes. To all those questions. As I mentioned in the first question, this book has tremendous heart. It tugs at your emotional strings...whether joyfully or mournfully. You cannot listen to this book without feeling your throat tighten. You can't listen without laughing out loud in a few places. If you can do these things, I question whether your emotional well-being.
Any additional comments?
Do yourself a favor...if you listen to just one series on audiobook, let it be The Last Hunter series. You won't regret it.

Filled with excitement, this book builds on the previous adventures of Solomon Ull Vincent as the battle against the Nephilim continues. I love the themes and the emotions rendered by these stories. I also enjoy the pop references scattered throughout.
The reader is really good at expressing the mood of the moment. He is a master of pacing. For instance, just when Solomon's heart is most likely beating wildly, Mr. Bray quickens the pace which enhances the excitement. He is also great at voicing multiple personalties as he did so masterfully in the Didymus Contingency (also by this author).
I wasn't sure about this series when I started it. I got it on sale. But I am very glad that I did since I have found another author that I really like. And I couldn't stop until I had read the entire series!
