Publisher's Summary

Ripley's a tomboy at heart who has never met a stranger. Her plans were to finish her veterinary studies and take her family to the country, where life wouldn't be such a struggle. She thought the worst she'd have to deal with at the University of Maryland were the unwelcome advances and attitudes of affluent students, and the occasional East Coast hurricane.
She never expected the sun to fall down.
An immense coronal mass ejection, the likes of which the modern world has never seen, blankets the Earth and destroys the power grid worldwide.
Ripley has no communication with her family at home and - thanks to the University's zero-tolerance policy - no weapons to protect herself. Society is becoming increasingly panicked and desperate, and the government seems slow to respond.
The world, as she knew it, has ended. A new world of lawlessness, betrayal, and scarcity is beginning.
Can she become the woman she needs to be so that she and her friends can make it home?
With the thin veneer of a civilized society collapsing, can she even survive?

Beware the power of the Sun!

This was a very enjoyable post apocalyptic story about a coronal mass ejection that hits the planet. This story is unique in that it has two narrators, Kevin Pierce and Becket Royce. Ms Royce narrates Ripley and the college students as they deal with the event and their plan to get home on foot the100 plus miles. Mr Pierce narrates Dottie and the people of Ripley's home town as they deal with the breakdown of society after the event. The writing of the story is excellent with well developed characters from a diverse background. The story told is fun and makes you think about what is going on around you and how fragile our world is. If you enjoy this genre you should like this audio book

The narration was excellent in this audio book. Mr Pierce delivered another stellar performance. This is the first time that I have heard Ms Royce and enjoyed her performance and would enjoyed hearing her again.

A Decent Story With Excellent Narrators

Not the typical SHTF story. The characters are fairly original and the storyline is fairly fresh and not filled with technical jargon or filler to make the story longer and boring. Decent pace and quite interesting! Looking forward to the next book!
