You start the morning off with Abby, who is heading into the city with her daughters, Addy and Mel. You watch as she does her business then takes off to do some shopping in another area. You become alarmed as everyone around her begins to panic and rush to get out of the city for some reason that isn't clear. You stay tense as she hurries to get out of the area. Then, your heart pounds when there is a blinding white light, deafening explosions, and Abby's van crashes as it is flung violently into the line of cars ahead of her.
That is how this gripping story about a nuclear apocalyse begins. It was so hard to put down, and refreshing as Abby isn't military or a prepper, and doesn't have survival skills. It's interesting being in the mind of someone who doesn't know exactly what needs to be done, who is injured, and has to depend on others. I was fascinated by this story from beginning to end.
This is my third book I've read by Jacqueline Druga and I plan on reading many more. There are a few spelling and grammar mistakes but none that take away from the story. I love her style of writing and am adding every one of her books to my wishlist.
