Atrum Terra Trilogy
1 : Dark Lands

by Brenton J. Cox
Aug 29, 2016
6 Hours
Ages 18+
What will it be like when the world really ends? Do you think that your Doomsday television shows and your Survival internet forums have prepared you for what is really coming? Do you think you will be able to keep your sanity with no cellular phone, no automobile, and no electricity? Will you be able to steal to stay warm, eat the family pet so you do not starve, or kill another human being to stay alive? You do not really want the world to end, not like this.

Atrum Terra: Dark Lands tells the story of two people from different sides of the nation that struggle to survive after a devastating attack breaks the back of the United States. It is a journey in which the whole world is sent spiraling towards a dark future where humans are an endangered species.

Jonathan Fisher is an average man living in Minnesota whose very sanity is tested when everything about his normal life is ripped away in an instant. He is left to survive in a new world full of victims, brigands, and a man made plague that turns its victims into violent, mindless cannibals.

Miguel Alverez is a Marine recruit trainee in California when the attack begins. He is thrown into active duty and must overcome the terror of a war from two sides as a biological weapon turns America's citizens against one another while enemy forces close in on the nation's borders.

Atrum Terra Trilogy: Dark Lands by Steve (Posted on 2/18/2019)
Book was great. Kept me rivited throughout. Looking forward to the next book.
Drew me in by Lynn (Posted on 12/28/2018)
I was a bit unsure whether I would like this series because of the zombie thing but I found it quite addictive.
Great book by Kyle (Posted on 8/27/2018)
What a good listen. Gritty and dark at times the way you would expect for an Apocalypse style book.
Atrum Terra Trilogy by Nellie (Posted on 4/25/2018)
This series is great. I really enjoy listening to Graphic Audio.
a must have by ken (Posted on 3/23/2018)

ATRUM TERRA TRILOGY 1 : Dark Lands by Roger (Posted on 3/16/2018)
I was unhappy with the start, however, it picked up. At the end, I could not wait for the next one.
Semper Fi by Shunsmith (Posted on 2/23/2018)
This book was a great listen for a Devil Dog like myself. This was a good twist with having a compelling story overlaid on a very overdone theme(zombies). Left me on a cliffhanger
Enjoyed it by Kerry (Posted on 1/24/2018)
I really enjoyed the book. It started off kind of slow but picked up the pace. I was disappointed when it ended since I didn't have the second or third
Very well done by Jim (Posted on 12/4/2017)
As with most or all of the GA productions, the voice acting, sound FX, and all that fun stuff are top notch. The story itself is decent, though admittedly a little sparse in character development. But, then again, few of us are looking for high literary values in these stories. We want action, we want some suspense, we want to have some fun listening. This story fills all those slots very nicely.
Another Zombie Apocalypse ??? by Armand (Posted on 6/4/2017)
Well, sort of a zombie apocalypse movie, but that seems to be more background than foreground so I trudge on! Actually pretty entertaining, action, good characters!
Disappointing by Justin (Posted on 5/6/2017)
Every review on the page is positive, which makes me think that the negative ones people didn't feel like writing. Therefore, I will write mine.

First of all, I can't criticize the overall production, so if that's all you need look no further. The voice acting is on point, the sound design is good, the background music is perfect... All of that is awesome. However, as a long time Graphic Audio listener, it takes more than their wonderful productions to blow me away.

The story. These characters are average characters. Completely average. The suburban guy, Johny, lives with his wife, has a dog, and no personal problems at all. Just a boring guy who goes to his boring administrative job. Our second character, Alverz, is a recruit for the Marines. That's it. He has one line of inner monologue, if you can even call it that, where he questions if college is worth being in the military. But that's all we know about his personal life.
And this is the problem. The characters aren't memorable. They're just people. I understand that's supposed to be the appeal of the story, but normal people have stuff going on in their lives. Why isn't the recruit thinking about his family? Why isn't Johny and his wife having some kind of issue? Why is there no inner monologue? This story relies on the events to take it forward, not the characters. Anyone could be in this story, and since they're personality wouldn't come into play, things would unfold the same way. I got almost to the end of track 2 before I figured out why I wasn't enjoying this book, and stopped.

If you're a reader who enjoys complex stories, that's not what this is, and don't be fooled. It's not worth the 15 dollars I spent. Not at all.
Great Start by Tad (Posted on 3/31/2017)
I loved it. Kind of a modern marriage of typical zombie fare with the Deathlands/Survivalist narrative about humanity at the end of civilization. Sympathetic marines, and a realistic tie-in to current geopolitical climate with China as the heavy instead of Russia. Definitely going to see what happens next...
Atrum Terra Dark Lands by Robert (Posted on 3/10/2017)
I am a huge Deathlands fan and bought this one while waiting for a new release. I loved the book and have just ordered the other 2!
Atrium Terra Darklands by Anthony (Posted on 2/7/2017)
Another good series that I purchased while waiting for my other favorites to have a new release. I was pleasantly surprised, and found myself just as immersed as I normally am with the other series I enjoy. Great job! Highly suggest purchasing.
Driver by Alfred (Posted on 1/26/2017)
I am hook need more than 3 book this can be another great audio book for the people!
WOW! by Andrea (Posted on 1/26/2017)
I've always loved zombies, depending on how they're done, and even better when you have an audiobook with a full cast! This was seriously phenomenal! There was so much action and suspense, and I'd get all tensed up listening to it on the drive home from work. It was great. And it was so easy to like the main characters too! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring us more zombie books like this one.
great action by Chris (Posted on 12/7/2016)
I love end of the world stories
Johnny by John (Posted on 11/23/2016)
An awesome new series. Really keeps you in suspense.
well thought out and nice set up. by rafael (Posted on 11/10/2016)
I loved the way it was explained so you understood how things happened. Just a great story that leaves you wanting more. Bring it on.
Very surprised by Kurt (Posted on 11/2/2016)
I was honestly shocked that I loved this story, but, it turned out that I did. The narrator, actors/actresses, truly hit home the "This is real, and you will see this." view. I think Graphic Audio is improving every time, not one book I can say I dislike by them honestly.
Dark lands by Jeremy (Posted on 10/21/2016)
Very thrilling and fun to listen to
I don't think three will be enough. by Jacob (Posted on 10/18/2016)
I started Dark Lands at the beginning of my shift. I was instantly enthralled. The plot line and character development has been on point from chapter one. I highly suggest this title.
Strong Voice-Work and Compelling Characters Draw in Listeners by Dee Emm Elms (Posted on 9/22/2016)
What can I say? The cover art, premise and title of this series left me a little cold at first. But I was looking for a distracting horror story and I decided to give it a try.

I'm SO glad I did.

ATRUM TERRA: DARK LANDS sucks in the reader with deceptive quietude, gradually building over about 30 minutes -- and then the story unleashes its true nature on the listener. The action doesn't let up for the rest of the run-time, albeit with the occasional breather as you gear up to experience the next harrowing chapter. But those lulls are all in service to the plot and the development of the characters.

And those characters stand out because they're normal people. They're recruit soldiers, old men, businesspeople. They're suburbanites. They're your neighbors. That's what makes the story shine, in that it depicts the events of war and disease from the perspective of average folks trying to survive and having to make crucial decisions that could mean the end for themselves and/or those for whom they care.

And you'll care about these people, too, thanks to a terrific voice cast. I want to heap specific kudus on Kenyatta Rogers for his work as Sergeant Jack Ford, a character I didn't expect much from at the start but who surprisingly ended up being a favorite. Also want to note David Jourdan as Frank Bishop; his work adds gravity and realism to otherworldly situations and helps root the story's realism despite the fantastical elements.

This one gets my highest recommendation. And I want to join with others who've said they hope this becomes a regular series from GraphicAudio. I think it could be a best-seller and could stand above the pack of similar titles if care is taken to nurture the characters' growth and development. Maybe you'll have another Deathlands on your hands.
Can't wait for more! by allan (Posted on 9/22/2016)
Well written and great acting! I try to make each book last as long as possible but this one was done in a day!

I really like the way the author had different perspectives across the US.

Thanks and bring more!
I Was Skeptical at First by Zuberi (Posted on 9/21/2016)
I was hesitant to dive into this series. The preview didn't quite sell me on the story; however I was in a zombie mood, and I thought I'd roll the dice on this one.

Within the first few minutes, I was hooked. I couldn't put the damn thing down, and I was fortunate that it was a quiet day at work. It certainly helped the work day go by quickly. I loved the take on how the disaster is created.

I Zombied out and already listed to it three times and eager to hear the rest of the trilogy.
Keep 'em coming by Michael (Posted on 9/19/2016)
Great story and great adventure. A destroyed society, man eating zombies on the loose, and a rag tag small army of fighting Marines defending America from foreign invaders. The action is non-stop. Keep 'em coming.
Very good starter book by Larry (Posted on 9/18/2016)
This book is very good from the start have to see if the rest are just as good
Awesome! by john (Posted on 9/16/2016)
I wanted to follow up the review I wrote about Atrum Terra. I love zombie movies and the zombie genre the movies, games and tv shows. This story had me hooked from the start and I can’t wait for part 2!
Atrum Terra Trilogy 1 by Joseph (Posted on 9/15/2016)
The Radio Thrills from the 50s are back !!!!......Good Stuff......Good Sound : )
Glad I got it! by Alan (Posted on 9/15/2016)
I wasn't sure about this one either, but it had me hooked after about 30 mins. I usually listen to audio books and GA audios as a way to kill time when I am going back and forth to work, or stuck in traffic. I actually sat in my driveway for an hour and a half listening to the ending, because I couldn't stop. I HAD to know what was going to happen. I am getting the second book right now and will definitely be getting the third when it comes out. I hope GA does more audios like this.
