I thought I was ready for Episode III, I wasn’t.
5 out of 5 stars
Follow this motley crew of survivors as they enter town to pick up more supplies, find new mutations, and fight for their lives in the third installment of Wormwood Dawn.
I have to start this off by saying that I think that Clifford Edwards has done a bang-up job on Episodes 1 and 2, but the sound quality was a little rough. EPISODE 3 SOUNDS AMAZING!!!! With that off my chest… wait, no one more time. This sounds absolutely perfect. I had no issues with this episode at all. Edwards is a natural when it comes to narrating the main character and his buddies. I can tell that the author has had some say in how each is narrated because the style he chooses for each fits perfectly.
The story was crazy, and I’ve been promised that it just keeps getting more and more insane. Crae can really write, and this episode really proves that. I usually don’t like episodic fiction, but I’ve been really enjoying this series. The bite-sized treats feel just like that — a treat. I don’t feel like I’ve overindulged and now I can’t move. Each new episode provides a perfect story arc and it doesn’t feel like anything has been left out of waiting for the next story. That is not easy to pull off.
The new character was an interesting addition and I welcomed it with open arms. The new “creatures” scared me a lot, and I had to take some time before I went to bed so that I wouldn’t have nightmares about them.
A lot of times I can tell how a story arc is going to conclude, and I tell you I couldn’t tell for all three episodes I’ve read… and I have absolutely no idea how Crae is going to end the full series either. This is a balls-to-the-wall, off road blitzkrieg of a story and series. (If I thought another adjective could fit there I would have put one). Crae is not afraid of anything, and you can tell in the way he writes his stories.

On a routine trip to gather supplies in a nearby town, the trio picks up another member who adds a much-needed contrast to their own personalities. His skills and attitude will round out the group, bringing them all closer together and making survival a little easier--and much more interesting.
Disturbed by a few startling revelations they find during their scouring, Dan begins to probe into the notebooks discovered at a previous looting spree in order to find answers. His quest for the truth brings shocking revelations that make the end of the world even stranger and more horrifying than it was before.
This third installment of Wormwood Dawn will shatter the age-old formula and drive the Apocalypse into a dark, and terrifying direction that knows no bounds.

About the Author:
Edward was born in Zanesville, OH, where he did absolutely nothing worthwhile with his life. Having drank himself into a permanent stupor, he finally moved to Indiana. Years and years of alcoholism and drug abuse kept him from exploring his intellectual interests; including astronomy, quantum physics, biology, and weird things like UFOs, mythology, and interdimensional or astral travel.
Throughout the years, Ed’s constant binge drinking and pot smoking had polarized his brain into the realm of the deranged. Pill popping aside, he now contemplates battles against massive hordes of undead mutants, and has barricaded himself in his deep woods home; prepared for the inevitable apocalypse.
Having an extensive collection of high powered rifles, Ed constantly stares out his window to catch the first glimpse of the stumbling horde. If and when that happens, he WILL fire the first shot.
Don’t bother talking to Ed. He won’t listen. He’s crazy. Just read the filth that he spews out into MS Word, and be happy. It’s all you’ll ever get.
