Publisher's Summary

Everyone has a story to tell…I’m Charlie, and this is mine. My life…unremarkable when compared to gods and kings, until the day the sky exploded. Now, everything has changed…life is all new. This is where it took me, and the people whose stories met up with mine.
From her home in the Colorado Rockies, reclusive Charlie watches the stunning star-filled sky when fireballs begin to rain down on the city below…Denver is destroyed. When she learns that most of the life on this planet is gone, she takes shelter in a large cave cut deep into the mountainside, and then is joined by other refugees. From that moment on, her life swerves down a path completely unexpected. She reconnects with people, finds love and hope again. Charlie diaries the events following a catastrophic attack on this planet. This is the story of the people who travel that path with her, who become family. Can they keep their humanity…find happiness when the world they knew is shattered forever? As they struggle to find out what is left for the remaining members of the human race, will they someday face the unseen enemy? Will they ever be safe again? Follow Charlie’s journey into a world where survival means more than just staying alive.

Would you consider the audio edition of Last Best Hope to be better than the print version?

I only listened, but it always is!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how realistic it was, and how this group of people came together and formed a lasting bond...creating a new family!

Which scene was your favorite?

When John finally arrives!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Oh yes...especially when Charlies dogs died..

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I loved this book! This was not your typical post apocalyptic book...there were no zombies or monsters...but there were aliens!!! Charlie had moved to Colorado to seclude herself and live a peaceful life...she feels free, has a nice man...and pets.and is content...Then one day the sky rains down fire...ending the world as she knew it...John her boyfriend, sends her to the mountains and to a cave named the old lady...more people come and before she knows it, she has a family...This is Charlies journal....and it was a beautiful easy listen that I quite enjoyed....and highly recommend!!!

Best Hope for a good SciFi

Last Best Hope by T.C. Butts is a good book. And i almost had to give full score for this book, but the action level is a bit low to be honest, but gosh this gets close to perfect! I would give it 4,4 out of 5, and gosh i wish it had that last 0,1. I recommend this book in the highest if you want a good quality SciFi. So get this book and be amazed like i was!

12 hrs and 15 mins with Cheril Lee is good, she does read the bo.ok a bit fast to get full score, but she is also a 4,4 out of 5. Cheril Lee is new for me, and i feel maybe she needs to get a bit more sure of her self, but gosh she is good for her first book!
