    Tragedy and mental illness have been dark companions of Rae Newborn for more than 50 years. Her life seems to start rebuilding itself, though, when she moves to a deserted island to restore the house her mysterious great-uncle built in the 1920s. But Rae senses powerful forces stirring on the island. Is the skin-crawling feeling she has of someone watching her only in her mind, or has something disturbingly real taken notice of Rae?

    Story

    The quality of the narration can make or break a story for me. The narrator of this book, Frank Mueller, is by far the very worst one I have ever heard. I would not even consider buying book where he is the narrator. He has a very soft sing-song voice and he ends every sentence with a breathy overly dramatic voice as if every sentence needs extra emphasis. It's so annoying and very distracting and that's just the general narration. His character voices are comical. I will not be able to complete this audio book. What a waste of money. I like Laurie R. King as an author so my best advice is to go with a traditional book on this one.

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    Story

    As other reviewers have said, this book is not well written. I thought I would never get over the constant use of acronyms, it seemed over the top and totally affected. The repetition of tasks (washing dishes, getting water, where the guns were placed while sleeping) and obvious statements (I just want to get home, well duh) became totally annoying after a while. Perhaps the author was going for a minimum word count because it certainly didn't add to the story. I also had a problem with the narration, especially once the 3 traveling companions split up. I don't know if it was the producer's error or the narrator's style but there were no discernible transitions (even a pause would have been helpful) from one story line to the other leaving me with way too many, huh? moments. I see no reason to spend another credit on this series. If you want to read a book on this topic try One Second After by William R. Forstchen or the classic Alas, Babylon. I enjoyed both books very much.
