Neutron Solstice (Deathlands #3)

3.74  ·  Rating Details  ·  377 Ratings  ·  16 Reviews
A generation after a global nuclear war, Louisiana is a fetid, sullen landscape of impenetrable swamps and grotesquely mutated wildlife. Above the gnarled bayous, radioactive red dust clouds race across the sky on nuclear winds; below, thick mud sucks at a man's boots. Now and then a biting acid rain falls, swept in on the boiling winds from the Gulf.

In the reeking swamp

Published November 1st 1997 by Gold Eagle (first published January 1st 1987)

Another great book by James Axler. I have read a lot of the newer books, but decided that I would like to start at the beginning to read this series. For those who enjoy a very explicitly detailed and graphic accounting of events that occur, then this book is for you.

My ratings system is as follows. One star is GOOD. The book is entertaining, easy to read and you don't want to stop reading because something about the book is compelling you not to. Two stars is GREAT! This time the story is not only entertaining, but highly creative, unique, easy to read and hard to put down. Three stars is EXCELLENT. Here the book has all aspects of one and two stars, but now the book is thought and emotionally provoking. Four is AWESOME. This is the read that is not only cr ...more

Set formula to this series! Explore somewhere, someone dies, someone's captured, escape somehow, kill someone, repeat......

This was the first Death Lands book I bought. I was hooked immediately. Now have every book in the series.

Recommends it for: lovers of post apocalyptic world settings
Shelves: post-apocalyptic
This was the first James Axler--it's a house owned name with multiple authors writing the series--that I ever read. Bought it used because it looked interesting and it was. Lots of action in a post Apocalyptic world setting which is one of my favorite futuristic themes.

If you like 'men's fiction' with lots of fights and freaky mutants, dangerous warlords and down right bug nuts crazy stuff going on, I highly recommend reading this series.

Possibly the best Deathlands book I've read yet. A well written pulp adventure with some revolting villains and a growing sense of heroism amongst the protagonists. Quite a few significant details are added to the mythos. Jak joins the team and we find out more about Ryan's secret past. Shockingly violent in places and a fast pace. A good one to sample the series with.

The Baron characted along with his lead Sec Man Mephisto add a depth of darkness and vileness that have not yet been reached until now. Although it's for adult audiances, this descriptive account of capture, torture, and abuse is entertaining to say the least.

Shelves: didn-t-finish
I don't think of myself as particularly squeemish or prudish, but I thought this books was just gross and offensive. I gave it a shot, but didn't feel it necessary to finish.

Het audioboek is goed geproduceerd, met veel geluidseffecten en dergelijke, maar het verhaal zelf valt eigenlijk toch tegen. Ga de reeks niet verder beluisteren.
Timothy Boyd
An average apocalyptic adventure story. This one takes place a century after the last war and now there are mutants running around the earth. Recommended
Yep, I'm a glutton for punishment... He's getting better though. Once again too much unneeded detail, at least the stories don't suck...yet.

Good production quality. Not something to listen to while the kids are in the car though.

See my reviews for the first 2 books in the series... this is just more of the same.
