But keeping it alive will require extraordinary measures. Yesterday's world is gone. All Deni and her family have left is each other and their neighbors. Their little community will either stand or fall together. But they're only beginning to realize that, and trust doesn't come easily.
Particularly when one of them is a killer.
Best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.

I have listened, to "Last Light" and having been with out electricity for over three weeks after the hurricanes that hit Fla., I felt much the same way that these characters felt. And believe me after the first week my family was on each other's nerves. Just knowing the electricity would soon be back on was all that got us through.
And as I was looking for a good Christian author, it felt good to read this book and then recommend this book to others, with out saying, just ignore the few bad parts. Thanks Terry for this book.
And as for bringing Christ into the Book, It made me stop and take a good long look at my own life.
To see where I stand with God, myself. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the books by this author.
I enjoyed this book, even though I really wanted to choke one particular character(no spoilers). I think many of us would be whinny and unappreciative, when put in similar circumstances. Overall a pretty good book and series.
I was really moved by the plot of this novel.Could I live without all the luxuries of my life? I think that Terri Blackstock has introduced a book series that,for me, can help me address that question.Her characters are not super human but just ordinary people faced with a crisis of global magnitude.As far as her pushing Christian values on others,I did not see it that way.I saw her as a writer bringing Christian values and principles into her characters lives at a time when I believe that I would have also done if I were in the same situation.I believe that Terri Blackstock did a very good job and can't wait to start the rest of this series.I have listened to "The Cape Refuge series" and loved that one too.So I hope that this series is just as good.
I thought this was a good story, although I would have enjoyed a little more depth. The major characters were reasonably believable, and the basic premise was a new take on an old theme. As I listened, I found myself taking stock of my own possessions and wanting to lay in a stock of canned goods. I thought the reading was fine, and don't understand the gulping noise some others have commented about. I listened for it and never quite caught it. Overall, a good listen. I will be getting the rest of the series.
OK story, but worst EVER narration
The ending was all that kept me listening
Every character was whiney and whingey, from start to finish. Narrator had 0 skill
The so-called lead - Denni. And her father, her mother, her siblings. Oh, and everyone else
Quite honestly the worst read audiobook I've ever experienced!
The story. It brought a lot of things to mind considering the state of our country.
The father because of his strong faith in the Lord.
All of it.
Terri Blackstock has never let me down. Her books are wonderful.
I enjoyed thinking through the issues and solutions with the characters. I also appreciated that the dialog was not "sanitized" but seemed real. Has me thinking about how I might react in a disaster.
All I can say is GROSS! The only thing Dick Hill inspired in me with his gulp swallow narration was nausea. Not only were his throat noises absolutely disgusting, but his simpering whining impersonation of female characters only succeeded in making all the women sound like clinging, whining shrews. I can't even rate the story as I would have needed a lobotamy to finish the book.
The plot is very amaterish. I could not relate to or care about any of the characters. There were few surprises. I hated the narration.
The story lacked any sophistication or suspense.
Maybe if he didn't try any women's voices.
None. It is singular in that I stopped listening which I have never done before.
I just love the Restoration series books. It really makes you think and put your life into perspective. I can't imagine going through that. Terri Blackstock does a great job depicting what life without technology of any kind would be like. I love reading books, but having books like this and the added bonus of making yourself look at your own relationship with Christ is wonderfal.
