After a harrowing escape from the SYLO occupied Pemberwick Island, Tucker Pierce and his surviving friends have finally reached the mainland, only to find that no one is left. The once bustling seaport city is deserted.
From the bowels of a Portland hospital where they encounter their first fellow survivor to the abandoned stores they must raid for supplies, Tucker, Tori, and company set off on a quest for answers and, for Tucker, vengeance. But as one highway gives way to the next - and one death-defying escape precedes another - Tucker soon realizes that “trust no one” doesn’t just mean the U.S. military.

Pam can often be found singing many of The Wiggles songs while simultaneously reading a book in rhyme and drinking coffee.
Perhaps with a different narrator.
I love that it's nonstop action from start to finish.
I wasn't thrilled with the voice of the narrator. It was too scratchy or something. I liked him imitation of the non American voices but that's all.
The first book in the series, SYLO, introduces us to the main characters and the problems erupting on Pemberwick Island in Maine. It's fast paced from jump and appeals to boys and girls. Its perfect for young teens who aren't quite ready for Divergent type books but might be a tad too old for standard middle grade novels.
Then comes Storm, book two.
More non stop action! Plus you get a tour of the US and I learned some things about Nevada and not just that Las Vegas is there. I cannot wait to get my hands on the last book. Trust no one, you hear so often in the book it makes you wonder.
I love that this series is head rushing from start to finish. I listened in my car through my Audible app on the phone so I couldn't wait to get in my car and drive!
I really enjoy a good 'Mystery/Thriller' but the narrator can cause me, at times, to not listen to what might have been a really good story.
Good follow-up to the first in the series. I know these are meant for 'younger' listeners but I enjoyed this one as much as the first. My only question is, when is the third in the series being released?
