Publisher's Summary

A world devastated: a sky filled with magical auroras at night and deadly radiation during the day; technology all but gone; hundreds of millions dead by fire, starvation, disease, and violence. The survivors will have to face their own desolation.
Three groups struggle to endure and hold onto what little they have, while others will do anything to take it all. On a beach in Mexico, a small town in Wyoming, and a rural ranch in Illinois, epic battles between good and evil will be fought. Winners will have to face forces of nature never seen before.
But, there is a dim light on the horizon. A 150-year-old secret may lead the lucky few to a place that holds the promise of a new future, unless the sun doesn't set on humanity first.
This is the stunning follow-up to the #1 Amazon best seller Stone Age.

Desolation a serious view of a possible future.

What did you love best about Desolation?

I first stumbled onto ML Banner’s book the “Stone Age” which was his first book. This book brought to light an apocalyptic scenario I had not seen before in any other book. It is based on the 1859 Carrington Event with real facts and possibilities. No other book provided the insight of what a solar coronal mass ejection (CME) might be like, nor what the results could be. That book really hit home. It shook me to the core and as former Marine I could see the facts being provided and backed up by a scientific viewpoint. I could not wait to read his second book “Desolation”. The second book was just as good and provided a continuation of the story and further insight to the fallout of a CME. The characters both developed and continued, seem to spring to life throughout the tale. I know this is a work of fiction but after many years of human study I believe they are spot on. In conclusion I would say these books are a required read for anybody with an open mind, and the insight to be prepared for what the future might bring. Thank you ML for providing a much needed view of a possible catastrophic event which might be in our future.

What about Mikael Naramore’s performance did you like?

His performance was great and he brought life to the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A possible catastrophic event which might be looming in our future!

Another Great Story from ML Banner

Would you listen to Desolation again? Why?

No. Listening to a book you have to take your time to listen to make sure that you know what is going on in the story. Whereas, if I had read the book, I probably would have burned through it at certain points and might have missed something, because I wanted to know what was going to happen. I would be more apt to go back in the book and re-read what I had missed versus going back and trying to find what I didn't hear.

What does Mikael Naramore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I love the different voices. You have some audiobooks where you cringe when you hear the reader try to create different voices for all the characters, but this isn't one of the cringe worthy audio books.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed all of the different scenarios that were going on for everyone in the story. I thought that they all wove well with each other. I was never confused as to who was who or where each of the scenarios were taking place. I had never read the first book in the Stone Age series, but have read Cicada. So now knowing where each of these characters came from in the first place was great for me!
