105 : Wretched Earth

by James Axler
Sep 1, 2012
5 Hours
Ages 18+
After the Megacull, the weak died off, so that a century later, the living have descended from only the toughest stock. Still, it takes more than strength to survive Deathlands. It takes skill, cunning and a warrior's heart. But for Ryan Cawdor, staying alive isn't just about living. In this nuke-transformed America, it helps if somewhere, deep inside, there's hope of finding something better.

A virulent strain of a predark biowep has been unleashed upon the denizens of northern Kansas, turning them into rotting, flesh-eating monsters. Running from the mindless, soulless rottie hordes, Ryan and his companions arrive in the civil-war-torn ville of Sweetwater Junction. They've got one shot at beating the hungry rotties: turn the bloodlust of the ville's warring factions away from each other and toward a common enemy. But that means splitting up and hiring on as sec for both sides and surviving the firefight-before the real hell is unleashed.

In Deathlands, time is blood.

DEATHLAND'S WRETCHED EARTH by alan (Posted on 3/12/2016)
I just adore the way that they added a whole new layer-a genre-while I'm totally into the walking dead theme today; all when I said I had had enough of it more than a decade before, and then it crept in and clobbered me with its intense character roles. Well I must say, sell it while it's HOT! you guys should consider: RE-visiting. The only limits are the ones you set and of course; not withstanding more in depth studies in literature and the "guidelines in/for the fabric of the fantasy" . I mean I kept on waiting for one of those damn things to reach out and bite me, while I was slurping on my big gulp soda, kicked back in my easy chair listening intently at Ryan and the gang..LOL! I give this one three because I thought it could have been longer.

Deathlands goes Walking Dead! by Jason (Posted on 10/26/2014)
All and all, I liked this story. Despite its rather anticlimactic ending, it was interesting to see how Rian and company would handle a zombie attack. The narration and acting were as perfect as usual, and the music and sound effects just get better and better as time goes on. So great job GA. keep up the good work.

Deathlands #105 Wretched Earth by Steven (Posted on 6/12/2014)
Arriving in Kansas, they encounter rotting flesh eaters caused by a bio wep. Not to mention, smack in the middle of a civil war. They split up as mercenaries a try to use each side to combat this menace and stay alive themselves.
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Hmmmm, someone, the author probably, has been watching too much of the Walking Dead!

Seriously? Though we all like zombie stories, in a world where there are horror like stickies, howlers, bio weapons, and undead pigs, I must wonder what made the author of this particular story think that zombies could bring anything to the table.

The whole production was well executed however, and actually made enjoyable by Graphic Audio's crew.

Like some of the stories before, this one left us at a slight cliffhanger, with many questions unanswered- and probably will never be answered either like many stories before- the problem of having multiple authors working on one series.

In fact, this has been a very big problem with the DL series after maybe the first 40 books- the later stories are disjointed, disconnected, and generally all over the place.

It's like every author wants to take the series in a certain direction, only to have the next guy come in and stop it short.

The fact that we still love this series is a testament to the power of Graphic Audio's work and ability in transforming a bad story into a very nice piece of audio drama.

Review by Armand (Posted on 5/23/2013)
I first started buying these in truck stops, then discovered MP3 download and thank goodness! I was able to fill in gaps where I couldn't find the CD's... now I download everything.

Personally, I like all the different stories, unanswered questions and such. I love this series and want it to keep going! I also wish Outlanders would continue... but... The Deathlands series is a SciFi soap opera brain candy for me on daily 10-11 hour drives... I love them all and I could hug the whole cast for doing such a wonderful job!

Keep up the great work!

(and yes, the zombie worm thing wasn't the best, but still entertaining! Still love it!)
Review by robert hir (Posted on 5/23/2013)
