Publisher's Summary

When society ceases to exist, who can you trust?
After the collapse of the nation's power grid, America is under martial law - and safety is an illusion. As violence erupts around him, Morgan Carter faces one of his most difficult decisions yet: whether to stay and defend his home, or move to a more isolated area, away from the prying eyes of the government. He and his family are hesitant to leave their beloved Lake County, but with increasingly suspicious activities happening in a nearby refugee camp, all signs point towards defecting. Morgan and his friends aren't going to leave without a fight, though - and they'll do anything to protect their freedoms.
From the author of the hit survivalist novels Going Home and Surviving Home, Escaping Home describes the struggle to live in a world with no rules, and how, sometimes, the strength of family is the only thing that can pull you through.

It's only half a book!

What did you like best about Escaping Home? What did you like least?

Least: This is part 3 in the series and it really is only half of part 3. This one is only 8 3/4 Hrs long - Book one and two are 16 hrs. each. Seems like this is an underhanded ripoff to force you to buy part 4...You have to listen to understand what I mean, but all of a sudden the story ends and the epilogue begins. The previous books were much longer and actually completed part of the story, then led you into the next part. This one just cuts off the storyline.

What did you like best about this story?

This series is very entertaining.

What about Duke Fontaine’s performance did you like?

Very well spoken. The different character voices are a very nice and enjoyable to listen to.

Do you think Escaping Home needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. I would enjoy continuing to follow this series, with the exception of this shortened version as mentioned above. Everyone be aware that book 3 is only half a book.

Any additional comments?

I think this shortened version is a very bad practice. Book 3 is only 8 hours and 41 minutes and really leaves you hanging for an ending. I think making people pay full price for half a story is just wrong. Whoever chose this tactic should really reconsider their options. Makes me consider not buying part 4 out of spite.

WARNING! DOES NOT END SERIES! CUT FOR PROFIT?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - but only if they understood that this book will not 'finish the story'. My only complaint - as far as the reader goes - is that he often didn't allow enough 'silent space' to show that a chapter, or a scene, had changed....and your mind had to do some 'catchup' to figure out what was going on.

Any additional comments?

I AM REALLY TICKED OFF ABOUT THIS BOOK! I have thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes, but THIS book appeared to be INTENTIONALLY CUT - while suggesting the final, dramatic ending still to come. The other books were roughly 16 hours +/- , but this only 8. WHY? Obviously this part of the story needed another 8 hours to tell it - as the final confrontation with the DHS is yet to come. But - it just....STOPS.

I HAD THE DEFINITE IMPRESSION THAT IT WAS INTENTIONALLY SHORTENED - TO MAKE READERS BUY THE 4TH BOOK IN THE SERIES, IF THEY WANTED TO KNOW THE ENDING.

AUDIBLE - This was probably the publisher's 'doing'....but you should be alerted to this 'sales tactic'.... and WARN YOUR CUSTOMERS ACCORDINGLY.

PERHAPS YOU SHOULD WORK WITH THE PUBLISHER TO MAKE THIS A 'TWO FOR ONE' DEAL.... BOOKS 3 & 4 FOR ONE CREDIT. Then we'd be getting what we thought we were paying for.

Review of the whole series so far books 1-5

I have just finished book 5 in the series and thought I would write a review on the whole series (so far) as I loved all of them the same.

So if you've read the synopsis you'll now that Morgan was on his way home to his wife and 3 kids when.... the power goes out, an EMP maybe? and plunges the world back into the stone age. Now you might be thinking that there is a couple of other books on the same line and a successful TV show.

However what makes this different?
Morgans story and the situations that he finds himself in with people that are trying to survive. I continually thought "yeah, that is what would happen, thats how people would act in that situation" it is brilliantly thought through. The characters are fantastic as well all with very different backstories which really makes you care about what happens to them.

But the stand out thing is the narration by Duke Fontaine it is fantastic it probably the best I've heard, he puts constant voices on all the characters so you know every time who is talking but is still clear to understand.

The only thing I would have liked is an explanation to why Morgan prepared the way he did, it sort of does near the end of the series, its only a small thing but it bug me a little.

If you like excellent narration, brilliant characters and a believable story (with a little hollywood drama chucked in) give this a go.
