Publisher's Summary

Mankind has suffered five mass extinction events; the sixth will be our final.
Days away from a catastrophic event that will end the world, five strangers find themselves stranded in the suicide capital of America dealing with the difficulties, regrets, and choices in their lives while trying to survive. Among the group is a talented performer, a petty thief, a gambler, a lady of the night, and a hard working cab driver.
With the clock ticking down and a sliver of hope found in a text message, their only hope is to get out of the city and embark on a dangerous journey across the country together.
Final Impact is a story of survival, friendship, and redemption in the face of impending doom.

Fun survival tale.

Final Impact is an apocalyptic survival tale. It follows the tropes of many books in the genre, detailing the events of a diverse group of survivors forced to work together to survive. However, unlike many books in the genre, which often times have EMP events (whether man caused or an extreme solar event) the reason the world is in peril is a mass asteroid. Yes we've seen this before in many films (Deep Impact/ Armageddon) but I can't say I've read many books with the asteroid focus. The story starts a short time after several smaller asteroids impact the country and focuses on a small diverse group of survivors attempting to get from Vegas to Florida, where a chance at salvation awaits. It's a pretty decent story, though not without some flaws, and entertained me from start to finish. I'd actually give it a 3.5 if Audible allowed half stars, but since I thought it was better than merely average I had to round up. This is the first time I've read/listened to a book by Jack Hunt, but I've looked at his catalog on Amazon and can already tell I'll be checking out some of his other work.

The book is narrated by Kevin Pierce, and as always he does a fantastic job. I so identify his voice with survival fiction that even when I am reading a survival book on my kindle, it's his voice I hear in my head.

I received a copy of this audio title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fun read, an afterwards story would be interesting

This was a real fun listen! It's a bit on the shorter side but sometimes that's a plus. The story does have a satisfying conclusion (if maybe a bit far-fetched, it's more enjoyable to if you just don't think too deeply about it).

I felt like some of the character interaction was a bit off and it was a bit hard to believe that with impending disaster the father would not take more drastic measures to locate his daughter sooner (though maybe that was part of his character flaw? Now that I think about it, perhaps!). Minor gripes aside, I really enjoyed listening to this book and feel like it would be an extremely interesting story to follow-up on.

Narration by Kevin Pierce was excellent and a pleasant listen. I swear I've listened to other books narrated by him (couldn't find any that were in my library) but maybe he just has one of those voices!

I would definitely recommend this for a casual listen and am definitely going to be keeping an eye out for more works by Jack Hunt and narrations by Kevin Pierce.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
