After a mysterious outbreak of a highly lethal virus ravages the globe and hundreds succumb to the contagious illness, the US government instigates a cordon sanitaire in major cities to contain it from spreading rapidly around the nation.
At the onset of the epidemic, his ex-wife, Kate, an epidemiologist for the CDC, warns Frank and their daughter, Ella, to prepare for the worst. The only hope of survival is retreating to their cottage on one of the isolated islands in the St. Lawrence River.
Desperation breeds anxiety. Their survival depends on fighting back and they're determined to survive.

Not Bad! I give the story 2 1/2 stars!!!!
Honestly its not a bad apocalyptic novel, but its not the greatest I've ever read either. Its actually a trilogy that has been put into a complete collection which is alot better then spending 3 credits, 1 for each individual book, so I'm glad they combined them into 1 novel. Plot was OK, but was for sure lacking in many areas, the characters were so back and forth especially the main character that it was hard to care about him, or any of the others, that honestly at the end it really didn't matter who lived or died because I didn't feel connected with any of them. The build up to the main event lasted the whole last novel, then was over in seconds with no real resolutions just those certain thugs dead, that's it. Its hard to explain without giving anything away which is why I don't normally leave reviews especially when I'm not impressed with a book, but I guess my main thing is that I don't feel like it was a waste of a credit, it's worth a read, just don't go into it expecting anything other then a mediocre story, something decent to pass the time but don't go expecting a Sarah Lyons Fleming story either because its nowhere near that good. It's just OK, but yes worth reading!!!!!

Condescending character voices and characters that just wont get it
Very frustrating to listen to as the narrator made everyone sound condescending. Further the author wrote characters that deserved to die from plain stupidness. I mean there is normalcy bias and some have it worse than others, but it is unrealistic to have th bulk of the characters to exhibit to such a degree and still survive. Frustrating to listen to when the. Story and narration each could have been so much better. Can only assume that this was an inaugural effort.
