Publisher's Summary

In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to the age before electricity, Deni Branning's career ambitions have vanished. She's not about to let her dream of marriage go as well. But keeping it alive will require extraordinary measures. Yesterday's world is gone. All Deni and her family have left is each other and their neighbors. Their little community will either stand or fall together. But they're only beginning to realize that, and trust doesn't come easily.
Particularly when one of them is a killer.
Best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.

If it does nothing else it will get you thinking

I have listened, to "Last Light" and having been with out electricity for over three weeks after the hurricanes that hit Fla., I felt much the same way that these characters felt. And believe me after the first week my family was on each other's nerves. Just knowing the electricity would soon be back on was all that got us through.
And as I was looking for a good Christian author, it felt good to read this book and then recommend this book to others, with out saying, just ignore the few bad parts. Thanks Terry for this book.
And as for bringing Christ into the Book, It made me stop and take a good long look at my own life.
To see where I stand with God, myself. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books by this author.

A thought provoking,Christian based novel

I was really moved by the plot of this novel.Could I live without all the luxuries of my life? I think that Terri Blackstock has introduced a book series that,for me, can help me address that question.Her characters are not super human but just ordinary people faced with a crisis of global magnitude.As far as her pushing Christian values on others,I did not see it that way.I saw her as a writer bringing Christian values and principles into her characters lives at a time when I believe that I would have also done if I were in the same situation.I believe that Terri Blackstock did a very good job and can't wait to start the rest of this series.I have listened to "The Cape Refuge series" and loved that one too.So I hope that this series is just as good.

Dreadful

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Evangelists and hard line born again christians

What was most disappointing about Terri Blackstock’s story?

A brilliant idea wasted

What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

I wasn't sure if it was for real

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The characters were portrayed well and quite easy to imagine. Descriptive passages were quite good.

Any additional comments?

I thought I would enjoy this book because the original idea was good, but by the time I reached the final religious rant (I managed to stick it out to the end!) I was starting to wonder whether the whole thing was just some kind of satirical parody. I agree with the previous reviewer - it definitely should come with a warning!

Interesting.

Started off great. The ever increasing religious sermons put us off listening to the end. It should contain a warning about that!
