Publisher's Summary

Ripley and her friends have escaped the University's lockdown and started their journey home on foot. They've found an opportunity to get supplies they sorely need, but the risk is high. Marco insists that the world is already far more dangerous than it seems, while Ripley's not yet convinced.
She's about to get a very bloody wake-up call.
Back home, Dotty worries over her little makeshift family, scattered to the four winds. Her neighbor is already out of food and getting pushy. There's been a riot, and a man was killed. Holiday travelers, stranded without gas, fill the town's parking lots. The elderly have begun dying. At the edge of town, watching over the Federal prison, the Sheriff faces a horrible decision.
The idyllic little town of Snow Hill is a powder keg, and the Mayor is holding a match.
Over the past century, people had become so reliant on electricity that they forgot how to provide for themselves. With the push of a button, food cooked in minutes. Endless clean water flowed from the faucets. Freezers preserved food for years. Stores were open 24 hours a day; there was no need to keep a pantry. What once had been thought of as magic had become...normal.
Ripley and Dotty are about to discover that normal has left the building.
Reality, with all of its hardships and danger, has arrived.
Not everyone will survive it.

There is no place like home?

This was a really solid continuation of the series and I just find myself liking it more and more. This story picks up right where book 1 ended. Folloing 2 different POV, there is still no power and our main characters are trying to make it home with many different road blocks. I really enjoyed how the author not only showed the dark side of people in crisis but also the kind side throughout this story. This helps the author keep events fresh and the reader engaged. During this story you can really see the change in our main character's attitudes shifting from blissful and naive to nervous and ruthless. As this series progresses the author chooses to leave some events to the listener's imagination, which I am okay with but still nosy about. SO maybe a side novella or explaination in a future book. This story was done with duel narration and both did a wonderful job. Each narrator bring something different to the table and gel together very well. This is what brings the author's words to life. Our group of survivors journey is far from over and I can't wait to see what is in store next. Hurry book 3!

What made the experience of listening to Advent the most enjoyable?

I've already reviewed the first book, but if you haven't already bought it, do so now!
