Arianwyn has flunked her witch's assessment. She knows she's doomed. Declared an apprentice and sent to the town of Lull in disgrace, Arianwyn may never become a real witch like everyone else - much to the glee of her archrival, Gimma. But the remote Lull is not as boring as it seems. Strange things are being sighted in the woods, and a dangerous infestation of hex creeps throughout the town. Then the worst thing Arianwyn can imagine arrives in Lull: Gimma turns up on vacation determined to make her life miserable.

Not sure if it's US but I enjoyed the story for a light read. Lovely narration.

Recent art school graduate Bekah thought she’d hit the jackpot: an unknown relative died, and she inherited a small fortune and a huge house in the mountains of North Carolina. Trey Howard, the lawyer who handled the estate, is a handsome man in his 20s and they hit it off right away - and soon become more than friends. Bekah expected a pleasant year to get her head together and have a romantic fling. Problem is, the house is full of junk...and siblings she didn’t know she had are willing to kill her for it.

What a trip! It's like a hidden puzzle, Clue game, with good and bad guys and a bit of snogging. The narration is spot on! Try it. I believe you'll love it.

Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

What did you love best about One Second After?

This was my first and best experience with prepping fiction. I learned SO MUCH from this book. It really got me started on getting ready for any disaster. Living in Florida we are always prepared for a hurricane and have lived through a few. Adding additional items in preparation for a longer period of "not being able to get" needed items has really raised our security level.

Wonderful storyline. I'd have liked a happier ending but such is life. Other books I've enjoyed are Alas Babylon!, Wool, Patriots, Distant Eden, and so many more.

I didn't particularly like the forced southern accent. It kind of gave me the creeps.

I'd still suggest this to anyone on the fence about prepping.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No one in particular.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Joe Barrett?

Not really if I had a choice. If he didn't put on the fake southern accent I might.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When they executed the thieves. It made me realize the difficult choices that sometimes must me made.
