The audiobook begins when Lissy wakes from a restful sleep. Her children, Natalie and Nathaniel, kiss her good-bye and leave for their first day back to college. Her husband, Glen, leaves for work right behind them. She continues on with her morning routine before she heads out to work as a nurse at their local hospital.
Lissy receives a disturbing phone call from her best friend, Carmen. Carmen tries to warn Lissy that meteors are headed straight for them. Their phone call is cut short. The power goes out.
Lissy races to get her children before the first meteor strikes. She catches up to Natalie and Nate. They attempt to take cover in an open field. A meteor strikes in close proximity to them, then another, then another. The impact causes an earthquake. The earth underneath them opens up and swallows them alive.
When they hit the bottom of the pit, Lissy inspects her surroundings with her kids firmly in tow. After crawling around in the dark for what seems to be an eternity, Lissy discovers a penlight in her pants pocket attached to her key chain. She clicks it on. They all crawl along in a very narrow passageway on their bellies until they find an opening to an elaborate cave system.
After much exploration, all three fall asleep. They are trapped, buried alive.
After a few minutes of unrestful sleep, Lissy awakens and stumbles toward a troubling light. It is an angel. He confronts Lissy and tells her that everything she had experienced that day will come to pass in 30 days if America does not repent. Her dream was a prophetic warning.
Everything Lissy had just experienced was a dream. Disbelief rolled off her shoulders. She was dreaming that she was dreaming.
The angel carves a 30 into the meat of Lissy's arm as a sober reminder that her time is short. God means to destroy America for its backsliding ways. If America does not repent as a nation, America will fall.

Avid reader who is also a mommy. Audible saved my reading time!
...someone published a book imagining God's reaction to America's rejection of Him! This book is timely and a good premise. I loved the faith that Lissy showed throughout her ordeal. And I loved how her kids stayed by her side, without question, from the minute she told them about her dream. All in all, it is a plausible visualization of how a call to action would be received in the United States today. I will be on the lookout for the next book in the series.
The one downside for me was the narration. I had to get past Tina Marie Shuster's performance to the real story Lisa Scott was called to write. Tina's voice is good and enjoyable to listen to when she is straight narrating. For me, it was how she made Lissy sound more whiny than anything else and her male voices were horrendous. Glenn sounded like a cartoon character.
I received this book for free from Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review.
I like big books and I cannot lie.
I mainly listen genres other than this. I like to listen to apocalyptic thrillers and have listened to many. This book was different and interesting.
I like the way the main character is strong in her faith and devotion.
This is my first book narrated by Tina. I like her voice and feel like she would do well reading YA as she sounds very youthful.

This is an end times Christian thriller, that is not much of a thrill to read, nor is it very spiritually challenging, as it is obviously intended to be. As much as the initial idea may seem plausible, the execution of the story falls on its face and ranks somewhere between the unbelievable and the absurd, mostly on account of the characters and their nonchalant attitude about their responsibility to warn America of her impending doom. All suspense and action is held back until the very end of this first part trilogy.
It seems like the target audience was intended to be teenagers, around 13 to 15 years old, and I don't mean that as an insult to the author.
The reader did a decent performance, but again, a lack of edginess to help where the story lacks.
Yes. It is a uneque read.
Lisy: the main character was heart warming.
Yes. This is the best.
United States Wake up call
Best book ever.
This book was just ok, the only thing i can say I liked about the book was it was christian based. The narration was horrible. I hate to leave such a low review on a book since this audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast but this one wasn't for me
"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."
When God finally says enough and gives the United States a 30 day warning to repent and make him the center of their l7ves or be destroyed; will the people heed the warning? This book follows the end times that we now face.
I could not stop listening. The plot continually builds throughout.
If I understood correctly this is book one in a trilogy. I hope the continuation happens soon, as the characters make the listener care for them.
The narration was well done, The characters were excellently portrayed.
