The bridge connecting the grand and storied Meeting Den Resort with the outside world has collapsed! The resort's buildings are on fire, and the worst ice storm in 500 seasons is on the way. Thurians of every age and rank are now trapped high in the Yarvea mountains, without heat, communications, or food. With no ability to escape on their own, the coming sunrise might well be their last!
Nearby, a vehicle leaving the Meeting Den has been buried in a landslide triggered by the same quake that isolated and nearly destroyed the mountaintop resort. Close to death and entombed beside her unconscious employer in their crushed vehicle, Sahnassa de Orturu cries out into the stifling darkness for help, knowing that no one can hear.
But someone does! She awakens inside the fantasy she's always dreamed of - contact with life outside of her own world! An extraordinary being with astonishing powers heals Sahnassa and her boss, Vanarra Anasto, and places them back safely on the mountainside. With his secretive assistance, the two stranded Thurians must ensure that help gets to the Meeting Den before time runs out!
Fifteen hundred lives depend on it!

Interesting multiple rescue
I think the one of the most memorable parts of the book is when Sahnassa figured out where she was. I don't want to give much more away, you've got to read it for yourself.
I think it was when Vanarra was held hostage.
There were several parts that made me laugh, a few that made me cry, and one or two that made me mad.
Mr. Lewis really drew me into the story in a way that hasn't happened quite a while. THE RESCUE: THE FIRST VISITATION OF THURIA captivated me, drew me in so deep that I didn't want to stop listening, even during work or at home. The world he created was so vivid that I couldn't help but suspend my disbelief and fall into the story, falling into the characters to a point where I could see them, I could feel their pain, their joy, their fear. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the series, and I think I'm going to pick up the paper copies to keep in my book shelf as well. If you want an excellent science fiction read with very strong feminine characters and a distinctive challenge to look at our own world the same again, take the time to listen to this book.
