Where’s the audiobook for book 11 of the System Apocalypse series?

A Fist Full of Credits

Bail bondsman. Veteran. Survivor.

Hal Mason’s still going to find surviving the System Apocalypse challenging.

While bringing in his latest fugitive, Hal’s payday is interrupted by the translucent blue boxes that herald Earth’s introduction to the System – a galaxy spanning wave of structured mystical energy that destroys all electronics and bestows game-like abilities upon mankind.

With society breaking down and mutating wildlife rampaging through the city of Pittsburgh, those who remain will sacrifice anything for a chance at earning their next Level. As bodies fall and civilization crumbles, Hal finds himself asking what price is his humanity. Are the Credits worth his hands being ever more stained with blood?

Or does he press on – relentless?

A Fist Full of Credits is the first book in a new series in the System Apocalypse universe. Written by debut author Craig Hamilton in Tao Wong’s bestselling post-apocalyptic LitRPG universe, System Apocalypse – Relentless is another glimpse into what humanity will do when the chips are down and the monsters are crawling from the shadows.
