For dinosaurs, it was a big rock. For humans: Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). When the Earth is hit by the greatest CME in recorded history (several times larger than the Carrington Event of 1859), the combined societies of the planet's most developed nations struggle to adapt to a life thrust back into the Dark Ages. In the United States, the military scrambles to speed the nation's recovery on multiple fronts including putting down riots, establishing relief camps, delivering medical aid, and bringing communication and travel back on line. Just as a real foothold is established in retaking the skies (utilizing existing commercial aircraft supplemented by military resources and ground control systems), a mysterious virus takes hold of the population, spreading globally over the very flight routes that the survivors fought so hard to rebuild.

What a great opening book to the book series. I really love how I really had a personal connection to each of the main characters and could feel their pain and fear in just trying to survive in this world after everything went to crap.

R.C. Bray did another masterful job narrating the story and making each character come to life. I really love his Hispanic woman's voice which was a large portion of the book.

Before book one was complete I was ordering book two. As I write this book 4 comes out in a month and I believe I will have killed book 2 and 3 by then.

Awesome opening book.

R.C. Bray is by far my favorite narrator and I have approximately 50 of his narrated titles. If you are not familiar with him look him up on Audible his has more than 300 narrated titles. You won't be sorry.

I love everything RC Bray narrates, and this book just like book 1 is just as gripping with lots of action, scares, and tragedy.
This is an amazing series and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves action books.

After a long day of prepping a house for painting, all Gus Berry wanted was the night off to spend some time with his girlfriend and relax before having to return to work the next morning. But that isn’t going to happen. Because Gus’s co-worker Benny has found a one-night job at the local Mollymart East, a job that has to be done by morning. If Gus and his paint crew can complete the work by then, it could mean huge business with a respected, established grocery store chain.

Man, Keith C Blackmore did not disappoint with the prequel for the Mountain Man book series. RC Bray who is my absolute favorite narrator made Gus Berry come alive again. The Book has some laughs, chills, and terror all wrapped in one neat package. I would listen to the store while going on my early morning walks and more than once would look over my shoulder thinking a zombie was coming out between a house to come eat me.
Well Done Keith C. Blackmore and RC Bray! Bravo...Wish we could keep the Gus Berry stories going, but only if RC Bray keeps narrating the stories.

Perhaps the most compelling murder case of our day, the death of six-year-old JonBenet Ramsey galvanized the nation - and years after it occurred, the mystery still endures. Who killed the young beauty queen and why? Who is covering up for whom, and who is simply lying? In JonBenet, the most authoritative and comprehensive study of the Ramsey murder, a former lead Boulder Police detective, Steve Thomas, explores the case in vivid and fascinating detail.

Just the extreme disappointment no matter how much evidence against the parents for either committing the crime or at least covering it up for Burke the DA was unwilling to prosecute.

It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

Geoff Ashden is a regular guy trying to make an honest living as an antique dealer, but who has an uncanny knack for finding cursed objects and haunted places: a sinister Georgian clock carved with obscene and satanic designs, a hideous doll with deadly powers, a pair of old spectacles that let their wearer see a little too clearly, an ugly house with a terrifying secret, a church full of graffiti scrawled in decomposing human flesh.
