    The year is 2016, and America is no more. The United States, Canada, and Mexico now comprise a single, unified front to the world: the North American Union. Implanted ID chips are soon to become mandatory for every citizen of the NAU, and Trez Sleighton, a disgruntled ex-Army officer, takes to the mountains of Colorado to come to terms with the changing world-and his own hand in the whole mess. Then sounds the trumpet. Around the planet, people simply disappear.

    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Yes. I was a great read that took the time to develop the characters, but didn't feel like it meandered too much.

    The whole scene at the church with the nuns and the zoo.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the agent decided to save the little girl, despite knowing the personal risks.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want to get the next one.

    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos.

April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    For decades, December 21, 2012, has been a touchstone for doomsayers worldwide. It is the date, they claim, when the ancient Maya calendar predicts the world will end. In Los Angeles, two weeks before, all is calm. Dr. Gabriel Stanton takes his usual morning bike ride, drops off the dog with his ex-wife, and heads to the lab where he studies incurable prion diseases for the CDC. His first phone call is from a hospital resident who has an urgent case she thinks he needs to see.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The beginning was very very slow. All the science stuff makes for a dull start!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not surprised, since we all know the basic premise.


    Was 12.21 worth the listening time?

    Yea
