Cthulhu Armageddon is the story of a world 100 years past the rise of the Old Ones which has been reduced to a giant monster-filled desert and pockets of human survivors (along with Deep Ones, ghouls, and other "talking" monsters).
John Henry Booth is a ranger of one of the largest remaining city-states when he's exiled for his group's massacre and the suspicion that he's "tainted". Escaping with a doctor who killed her husband, John travels across the Earth's blasted alien ruins to seek the life of the man who killed his friends.
It's the one thing he has left.

The world (earth) is different now that the Old Ones have resurfaced and reduced cities, nations and humans to near extinction. Life is different and 100 years later, things are only worse as the monstrous Old Ones have risen and turned loose giant monsters that roam freely the now expansive desert like world and where magic is the only way to survive.
John Henry Booth is in the military – a ranger charged with the destruction of the monsters and aliens along with saving humans. Then he encounters an old friend/mentor – Ward who has become a deadly and magical foe seeking to collect children for his latest experiments.
His team comes under deadly fire; lives are lost and suddenly Booth is persona non-gratis. Along with another criminal ex-government sanctioned torturer, Booth sets about discovering answers and making Ward pay for his crimes.
Booth discovers more than he bargained for and loses much more!
Action packed post-apocalyptic horror book that keeps one on the edge of their chair! The twists and surprise ending will keep your head spinning!
The dialog is realistic and well done; the character development is solid as well. C.T. Phipps does an excellent job of creating imagery to describe what is going on keeping it realistic – such as the relationships and issues are real life but fit easily into the plot. Phipps does a good job of crafting his story beginning to end.
My only issue lies with how the story is described as a post-apocalypse western; I saw it more as a military type post-apocalypse story.
This is my first time listening to one of Phipps books and I know it will NOT be my last!
Jeffrey Kafer, narrator does an excellent job of telling the story and putting life into the characters via his skillful reading. He was John Henry Booth – or at least what I think he would sound like. His voice was gravelly and deep, just as it should be for the type of book and characters involved.
There were no issues with production; everything was clear and well done.
