Four years after a massive solar storm knocked out the world's power grids, Adrian Hunter is off on another adventure. He has heard that the US Navy may have docked some ships at Corpus Christi, so he saddles up and heads that way.
Before he gets there, he unintentionally rescues several girls and has no idea how to get rid of them. So he does what comes naturally and trains them in hunting and combat proficiency, turning them into a tough and deadly fighting unit.
But his troubles aren't over. He quickly finds himself leading a group of Texas volunteers against a much larger invading army from Mexico.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Its a good story...
This more of a military based post apocalypse story...
I haven't, but I like him...I thought he did a good job, and was actually very relaxing to listen too!
I did laugh at the girls antics a few times, Adrian really empowered them!
**I was given a free copy of this book via audiobookblast in exchange for an honest review**
I really enjoyed the first half of this book, when Adrian finds the girls, and then tries to find them a home, realizing the home for girls was not what he though and ultimately liberating 16 young girls from a life of torture....I liked how he trained them and loved them and taught them to be independent...but they took it and ran with it...and that was actually kind of endearing..the last part of the book was kind of boring to me...very military based and at times it was a little much...I do like Adrian though...he rocks!!!
The Eden books are good for what they are and this one is no exception. They give a story that is enjoyable and they out line skills and ideas that one needs to at least think about in an end of the current government situation.
The narrator is a little different than many others I have listen to on Audible but he brings that uniqueness to the Eden books and after the 4 book it is what I expect.
If you are interested at all about SHTF scenarios than I recommend this book it can be read by it's self but even better in order.
The book was an ok read. Adrian's Rangers were just plain silly. These little girls who fancy themselves some kind of a Navy Seal unit I found to be just plain silly. They manage to sneak on an aircraft carrier and take the bridge from experienced Navy officers. Ridiculous. I almost stopped reading right there.The end battle was very anti-climactic. The author just sailed right through it in a couple pages.
Yes, it's really fantastic.
The scene between Adrian and the man who had the girl.
Received for an unbiased review.
The story is fine, a bit predictable at times but not bad. The person reading the book is horrible, though. His tone and manners of speech seem terribly out of step with the characters he is trying to portray. He sounds like some type of English aristocrat trying to imitate the speech of real people. Made a pretty good story nearly unbearable to listen to. I should just bought the print book and it for myself. Audio quality varied several times within chapters, like he stopped at some point and started recording again, but with different audio settings.
