Publisher's Summary

When a bomb goes off at Yellowstone National Park, threatening the stability of the world's largest active volcano, the reclusive park ranger Harvey "Ben" Bennett is startled to realize that the blast itself wasn't the only threat: the bomb released a virus into the air, and the outbreak is beginning to infect and kill more and more people.
Ben teams up with Juliette Richardson, a driven CDC agent working inside the newly-formed BTR (Biological Threat Research) team, to find the people behind the act of terrorism.
When the attacks get personal, Ben and Julie take it upon themselves to seek out and destroy the threat before it's too late.
A race across the United States, chasing terrorists, dodging bullets, and escaping the threat of a deadly virus outbreak and military apocalypse.

An entertaining read.

Any additional comments?

With Post Apocalyptic fiction being one of my favourite genres this appealed to me from the start and I was delighted to get the chance to listen to it.

In this we follow Ben, A Yellowstone ranger and Julie, who is from the CDC. First off Ben is returning a wayward Grizzly back to where he belongs when an earthquake happens. His partner is sucked into the earth when a fissure appears and Ben is left hanging on for his life. When he gets back to the park it's to find that a bomb caused the earthquake and the place has to be evacuated. Ben finds out that at the site of the blast, an airborne virus was released and all who were there died. He partners up with Julie to see can they create an antidote for what looks like a terrorist made virus.

This was such a fast paced and intense listen. I found myself on the edge of my seat a lot waiting to see what would happen. Ben and Julie were both great characters and were easily likable. The plot flowed along and was quite scary because it could happen. We all have fear that a virus could be released so it was scary reading this.

The setting is another plus, for me anyway. I've always loved reading books set in Yellowstone both because of the stunning scenery it portrays and the fact that there is a super volcano there. It made the scenario that much more believable.

Anyway, this was awesome and I can't wait for more from these characters. It grabbed me from the start and kept my attention the whole way through. I thoroughly enjoyed the read!!

Mike Vendetti was amazing. He drew the tension of the book out and made it come alive. He had a lot of characters to portray and did a great job of distinguishing each. It came across that he enjoyed recording the story and it showed. I will definitely check out more by him.
