Publisher's Summary

For decades, inexplicable technology has passed into our world through the top secret anomaly called the Breach.
The latest device can punch a hole into the future....
What Paige Campbell saw when she opened a door into 70 years from now scared the hell out of her. She and her Tangent colleagues brought their terrible discovery to the President and were met with a hail of automatic gunfire after leaving the White House. Only Paige survived.
Fearing a terrifying personal destiny revealed to him from the other side of the Breach, Travis Chase abandoned Tangent...and Paige Campbell. Now he must rescue her because Paige knows tomorrow's world is desolate and dead, a ghost country scattered with the bones of billions. And Doomsday will dawn in just four short months...unless they can find the answers buried in the ruins to come.
But once they cross the nightmare border into Ghost Country, they might never find their way back....

Only wish I had known this is book 2 in a series

I wish I had known there was a book before this one (normally Audible indicates when books are part of a series...) The story/plot did stand alone, but it would have been better if I had known the background for the Breach where all the sci-fi components of the story come from. The characters do reflect on parts of the earlier book, and perhaps some of their motivations would make more sense if I had read that. In particular, their relationship with each other might have made more sense, and I would know what they were talking about when they kept referring to the 'Breach'.

However... overall it is a nicely paced and relatively suspenseful/thoughtful action thriller. Yes, yes, it is touted as a sci-fi book but it is not, not really. There is some "alien" technology that allows the premise of the book to occur, but, other than that, everything is within the realm of current tech.

I really liked it, but, then again, I like action novels as much as I like sci-fi novels. If you picked this up expecting it to be sci-fi, you might be disappointed. I will go read Breach now, and then the 3rd book in the series... it's really very engaging and decently written.

The narrator is okay. You can hear him inhale before speaking which is really noticeable for the first part of the book though it does improve as the book progresses (or maybe I tuned it out... ) There is no sex and no graphic violence and very minimal foul language.

Disappointing follow-up to The Breach

First off, don't even consider listening to this book unless you have listened to The Breach. In my opinion, The Breach is a vastly better book, and Ghost Country would spoil many important elements if you were to listen to it first.

As a sequel to The Breach, I was pretty disappointed in Ghost Country. The basic plot was interesting enough, but it lacked the excitement, variety, and twists that were present in The Breach. One of the things I liked so much about The Breach was the various use of the "entities" and their mysterious origins, uses, and consequences. In Ghost Country, the story focuses on just one type of entity, and while it does offer some potentially interesting uses, you'll pull your hair out listening to the characters go through some long, drawn-out sequence of events before they finally realize how to use the entity to their advantage.

On the bright side, Jeff Gurner gives another solid performance in his reading of the book. (If you're unfamiliar with his work, you must check out Daemon and Freedom(tm) by Daniel Suarez.) His narration makes almost makes up for the mediocrity of Ghost Country.

Liked the overall story

Kept me interested but this book failed to deliver on some level, but definately worth a read. Cannot really put my finger on whats making me mark this book down, maybe I have read too many or expect too much. I think I wanted more explanation and investigation of the anomaly itself, a very general overview of the story is we are going to mess up the planet so some guys decide to kill everyone, and thanks to a bit of time travel it's avoided. By no means a rubbish book but I feel it's missing something.

So exciting.

Different in a refreshing way from the first book. Stripped back and dynamic. Makes you wonder how close the world is to the end. Main characters really engaging although the end did stretch a tiny bit. Loved it. Great performance by narrator.
