When the plague came, federal agent Ellie Colson fled into the Adirondacks with Dee, the daughter she barely knew. They began a new life as subsistence farmers, isolated from the fall of the world. In the six years since, a small community has arisen from the ashes. Dee is grown up. She's engaged to Quinn, a young man from across the lake. And she's being hunted. Strangers are spying on the farms at night. Dee's harassed by a spurned suitor. One of Quinn's dogs turns up dead. Drawing on her old skills, Ellie launches an investigation of the locals. Turns out Quinn's dad has made some bad decisions. Some enemies, too. The strangers aren't after Dee - they're after Quinn. When he goes missing, Quinn's dad fears the worst. But Ellie has a lead. She and Dee track the kidnappers into the post-apocalyptic wilderness of New York - and into darker lands than Ellie could ever imagine.

Very high. All of Robertson's audible books that he has put out so far are read by Ray Chase who is one of the best readers. I hadn't heard him before but was so happy as he has the characters down pat.
A great continuation in the Breakers series. I have all the ebooks and all the audible books. Yes they are worth reading AND listening too. Definitely worth "reading" twice.
Will not reveal plot!
Absolutely - I put in my ear buds and went about my day with chores and running around.
Any Robertson book is not only worth reading but listening to. One of my favorite authors.
I really don't know what happened here. Did the author have a stand-alone cowboy novel that he decided to incorporate into Breakers? The characters are way too silly. The story is way too boring. I ended up not finishing it. Skipping to the epilogue where the story does go back to some of the previous characters. No harm done. You can simply skip this novel and go straight to Book 5 in the series without missing a thing (except a drawn out story).
This is the fourth book in the series and it was just boring. I listened to the first 3 books and the were good but couldn't get into this one. The only good thing i can say about this book is the narrator was good
The story is just boring. The plot meanders along with none of the epic battles or confrontations that made the previous books so good. I started skipping ahead half way through desperately hoping the story would get better.
Cameo appearance from the Aliens...
The first 3 books were so good....
Ray Chase is excellent, as always.

I felt that this was not quite up to par from the Breakers 3 book series which I rated a 5. It's tough to go to book 4 and compare to to a previous book that I rated a 5- you go in with high expectations and it wasn't up to par. But in all fairness, I don't rate books a 4 or 5 too often, so if you liked 'Breakers' you will enjoy this book.
I felt that 'Breakers' was great and I know that there are several follow ups to this series-Reapers being the first. I hope that book five can pick up the energy and characters that you can get in to that the first three books 'Breakers' had. I'll soon find out!
In this book we finally revisit Elle and Dee after their long absence since their story arc began in book 1 and while the new story arc was entertaining and satisfying, the new set of characters, Lucy and Tilly really set this book ablaze with a story of one person's dogged determination to save her childhood friend, even when that friend wanted nothing to do with her.
Another couple of sleepless nights but well worth the shadowed and sunken eyes and lack of focus accompanying them.
I enjoyed how this story line had more of a mystery/investigative type element to it which maintained variety from the previous books in the series. My only gripe is that the narrator's depiction of a female southern accent was absolutely atrocious. Most of the narration is good, but as in the previous omnibus, his female narration in general has room for improvement.
"Love this narrator"
Love this series - it has a good story that keeps you guessing and the narrator is great with his accented characters.
Well worth the listen !!
"amazing series!! I was hooked from the start"
loved these series of books! I couldn't stop listening once I started I would definitely recommend to anyone. The narrator reads so clearly and you can automatically tell which character he is portraying. can't wait to start the next one
"A bit like "The difficult 3rd [sic] Album""
I think its a crucial step in the series, and deals with some interesting situations. Its different from others in as much as the 'apocalypse' has now taken hold and we're dealing with other threats now.
Its an apocalypse book, there are a myriad out there, but this series is one of my preferred.
The sheriff, amusing and quirky.
I never want to listen to a whole book in one sitting. It;s a good book though
Good narration, good story, not the best in the series, but still worth a listen.
"Good Continuation of the Series"
If you're new to the series, you should start with The Breakers Omnibus (the stories preceding this book).
Overall, this is a good continuation with the series. I would say that Ellie doesn't seem quite as kick arse as she was in the prequel novella, but this is certainly worth a listen.
