The audible summary kinda says it all. This book picks up right where book 5 left off. Although it is not nice to loose characters, I like the way this series is realistic in that not all people make it through each confrontation. It would be too convenient if they could sneak in, sidestep a huge elite armed force, and get out without any losses.
I did not find Megan as irritating in this book as I did the previous. Her dialogue was a lot less repetitive.
I enjoyed the ending and think it was a good conclusion to the series. I’ve only listened to book 5 and 6. Now I need to start at book 1.
The narrator once again provided an excellent performance. All the characters had distinct voices and he brought out their personalities well. Even the female voices were well done. I would listen again to another book by this narrator.
There are no explicit sex scenes or excessive violence or swearing.

Dark Revival: EMP Lodge Series Book 6 by Grace Hamilton and narrated by Andrew Tell. This is the final book in the series. This story picks up right where the last book ended, with the group split in two. Half the group in danger from the NRU after being duped by Neil into taking the silver case to the NRU in hopes they would trade that for medical care for baby J.J at Megan’s insistence. So they were on the run from the NRU, racing back to the lodge where Neil was with their family. Neil was a dangerous man who was not who he said he was and his case helped destroy the NRU and made them some of the most wanted people in what was left of America.
At the lodge, Albert caught Neil using the ham radio without asking and speaking Russian. At their evening meal, Albert confronted him and Neil pulled a gun on the remaining members of the family at the lodge. And so this is when the Story really begins and Megan and everyone pushes themselves to their personal limits to make a 7 day march back from Ravenna in 3 days. Grace Hamilton has really crafted a well-rounded story and series. I will admit my personal frustration with the character of Megan. She drives me nuts and still does at times especially in this book. At times it is like over the 18 months so far in the apocalypse she has learned nothing for all she claims to understand she can’t do everything alone and needs other people and needs the support offered by others. The story is good though because it evokes thought and emotions in the listener and makes a person think and react to the story.
The narration by Andrew Tell was very enjoyable. Mr. Tell has narrated the entire EMP Lodge Series with the same High-quality vocal talent that he is very well known and respected for in this field of endeavor. He is able to get the listener to find the children endearing, Neil despicable, Megan the heartfelt reluctant hero, with ease and grace. Mr. Tell holds our attention in rapt awe listening to characters through 6 books as Ms. Hamilton crafts a unique world with a true beginning and end. This is a rare achievement for an author in the Post Apocalyptic Genre. Once again the production quality from Relay Publishing was excellent creating an amazing final installment to this series.

I have enjoyed all six books, but unfortunately I will never listen to another audio book if Andrew tell is narrating it as he is so bland. The overall story was exciting and would recommend it to anyone, but please read it yourself. Viv
