Before the odyssey began... there was the Trader.

Stories of the Trader and his convoy of war wagons endure in the badlands of post-holocaust America. A dealer in Deathlands'' most precious commodities-weapons and fuel-Trader takes note of a young Ryan Cawdor. Surrounded in myth and rumor, Trader sets into motion the beginnings of legend at a place called Virtue Lake...

At Spearpoint, the ultimate redoubt housing a valuable cache of predark technology, two opposing wills clash. Levi Shabazz intends to carve his own empire out of the vast wastelands, but the Trader intends to thwart him and end his bloody siege of power. It all comes to a head at Virtue Lake-a hard lesson fro Trader and a grim rite of passage for Ryan Cawdor.

Great Beginning by Robert (Posted on 7/20/2017)
The book is well done and is a great beginning to the saga. It gives you a little more detail about where Ryan comes from and how it all came together.
A great place to start by adam (Posted on 5/20/2017)
I wish I knew there was a book 0 when I started to listen, but I was able to slip this in between books ten and eleven.
I think it is "best" to listen to the books in order, but I'm glad to have the additional details presented in Encounter.

Kept me in my car listening by Debarah (Posted on 5/28/2016)
I was driving a long trip when I stopped to fill my car. 6 hours more to drive one night. I noted this book at the gas station. I figure it could keep my interest since my Satellite radio was not able to keep a signal in the mountains. I was hooked before the first cd was finished. I thank fully grabbed more then one book. I will never do a long road trip with out Graphic Audio again. This book kept my interest and really enjoyed the charters in the book.
Might try the second one. by Charles (Posted on 4/9/2016)

Encounter by Anthony (Posted on 3/21/2016)
Great first book. Originally found the deathlands books at a Haji shop in Iraq fell in love with it. I loved how this book wasn't focused on the normal characters all the others are about. I love the twists and turns that came with this one. A must listen for anyone that's loves post-apocalyptic books.
