Publisher's Summary

In the first five minutes, over a million people died.
In the months since then things have only gotten worse. Much, much worse. Earth reels in the aftermath of a devastating solar flare; the effect of a savage solar storm that has resulted in a global disaster of unprecedented proportions. Most of the world is without electrical power or the means to restore it. In the blink of an eye, the life we lead today became history: the infrastructures of modern American life ceased to exist. Cities, nations and governments are no more. The economy has collapsed and lawlessness reigns. Billions have perished and survival has become a way of life in a world that seems intent on wiping out humankind; or at least its humanity. Those who remain seem to operate on opposite ends of the moral spectrum.
Whether it's a group of religious zealots delivering evil, a mysterious military faction with a secret agenda, the dispersal of the world's most terrible bio-weapon, or an approaching hurricane, there is much to threaten the survivors of Harris Springs and indeed the whole of mankind.
Scott Montgomery and his unlikely group of friends try to hold on to what remains of their community and help the countless shattered lives within it move on in the wake of the apocalypse. But what lies ahead appears to be even greater darkness.

I really have enjoyed both book one and now this 2nd book of this series.
I love the story line, and all ( most) the characters.
The characters are engaging and well developed. The plot was fast paced. I found this series to be a nice break, and different from other books in this genre. I would recommend this book, but i would read the first book in the series and go from there.

the narrator did an excellent job bringing this story to life!
as did the writer!

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

I'm not sure if a second book in a series has ever been so well written. Franks has become one of my favorite dystopia authors.
