Wow! I'm speechless. An amazing, well thought out and written book. the last chapter was the most powerful I have ever read. I am a big fan of Stephen King's The Stand (even though the climax was a bit dissapointing) this book which is somewhat similar in more then a few ways, blew The stand out of the water. The characters were awesome, the climax was nail biting, the ending was powerful. I can't really say much else. but of the 43 books I have read this year, and all the books I have read in my previous year's this one was by far the best. Get this book and get it now. absolutely great.
This was the first time I've heard Tom Stechschulte, he is an incredible narrator! I love the different voices and accents he does, and the way he tells the story.
**SPOILER** I thought the ending was a bit disappointing. I thought for sure we were going to see Swan use the crown in some life or death situation, or to save the planet somehow. But she never even used it. Throughout the whole book Sister was trying to get the crown to her, and the thing never came into play, what was the point?

Well written novel of apocalypse, horror, steadfastness, love and hope. Characters are well developed. I thoroughly enjoyed this!
I highly recommend this story for anyone looking for an end of the world adventure. It took a few chapters to suck me in, but then I could not stop listening. Many times it made me laugh out loud and yell in anger. You become attached to the main characters in a way where they become your best friends. Great book and great narration.
In depth character development. You grow to truly love each character, even the ones you hate. The book is a little slow in the beginning but picks up speed and by the middle your heart is palpitating with excitement at ever word. The narration is spot on, giving voice to the characters that is very believable. I enjoy reading this book 10 years ago and enjoyed it just as much listening over these last few days!!
