CJ Rutherford did a marvelous job of developing his characters. Jaz, Jennifer, and even the dog, Tray were characters you come to love and badly want them to survive this horrific ordeal they are having to live through. I laughed and cried with them. I was terrified with and for them. I mourned with them. I can hardly bear to wait for the next book in this series.
The pros in this story are well developed characters, good descriptions of surroundings and events, and believability within the parameters of the story. I was so wowed by the ending of the story that if there were any errors in it I totally forgot them.
The only issue I have with the story is I would prefer less profanity particularly of the f bombs that often plague it. I do understand that in real life certain events do seem to elicit some profanity (I have been guilty of it myself) but I do find f bombs particularly distasteful.
I first experienced Treaters by listening to the audible version. It was outstandingly narrated by Michael and Kelly Ables. Michael did a wonderful job of narrating Jaz's portion of the story and Kelly was terrific at recounting Jennifer's part. They each gave the characters voices a naturalness. The emotions they depicted came across as real whether it was being playful, hurt, loving, etc.
I purchased the Kindle ebook but I was gifted the audible copy through a giveaway I won but as I thoroughly enjoyed it I am voluntarily reviewing it. Thanks go to CJ for this amazing story and Michael and Kelly for their wonderful narrations.
It’s an amazing mix of horror, fantasy and romance, with plenty of action.
It grabs you on page one and doesn’t let go until you reach the end…
And what an ending – I didn’t see that coming.
The treaters are out to destroy all humankind and something else is destroying all life on earth.
After the death of his friends, Jaz is left to survive the end of the world on his own, until he meets Jennifer. They may be the only two people left on earth after the treater’s invasion.
Thanks to CJ Rutherford’s descriptive writing, I joined Jaz and Jennifer (and Tray, the dog) as they ran, hid, survived attacks and fell in love.
This is an awesome book and I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
**I first came across CJ Rutherford’s Treaters when it was a short story in The Cat, the Crow, and the Cauldron: A Halloween Anthology which I read and reviewed in October, 2015.
Since then CJ Rutherford has taken that short story and turned it into this terrific novel.
I loved this book so much. It is a fast paced scifi thriller with lots of humor and pop culture references. The characters were well developed and worthy of the exciting journey. The story has twist and turns with surprises. I am purposely trying not to give specific information as the less you know, the more I think you will enjoy this book. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Seriously stop reading this review, and start reading Treaters! You will not regret it. This book engages the reader and leaves you wanting more. I am excited to read what happens next.
I should mention that I listened to the audio book. The narrators were perfect.
Jaz, a retired Marine, is with his buddies on their annual fishing trip in remote North Dakota. When they head back to civilization, they realize that something is terribly wrong. Nobody seems to be around and everywhere they go, they find evidence of death and destruction. The first encounter with the Treaters, so named because they attacked on Halloween, is truly horrific.
Fast forward to Jaz finding a young woman dead in a basement, guarded by her dog, Trey. Jaz quickly decides to try to get back to his remote cabin and Trey seems to be his only companion. The two find a young woman named Jennifer hiding out in her family's diner and the three head back the cabin.
This story was wonderfully written, full of humor, horror, sadness, hope and despair. The two main characters were very well developed and their friendship develops as they face the possible end of the world together. I enjoy reading apocalyptic stories and this one has to be the most unique one that I have read.
Of course, the addition of the faithful canine companion was a wonderful addition to the story. Trey became my favorite character and really added a lot to the story.
The ending will have you screaming and crying and ready to throw your book (or other reading device) across the room. I had to wait several days before I could even begin to write a review!
I listened to the Audible version of the book and the narrators did an excellent job. The use of two narrators enhanced the story a lot. Usually, you have one narrator just reading the book to you and I enjoyed this unique approach of using a man and woman as the voices of the characters.
My only complaint is that the Epilogue came WAY out of left field! It was so totally different from the rest of the book that I ended up being confused. I hope that Mr. Rutherford writes the next book in this series quickly because I really want to know what happened!

Be warned, this is nothing more than a love story for teens thinly veiled as a survival horror story.
