  • For Which We Stand: Ian's Road (A Five Roads to Texas Novel)

El Paso wasn’t the Promised Land that Ian and his crew had hoped for, but it wasn’t a total bust either. The concept of a safe haven in today’s world was a fool’s errand at best. This was the consensus of their tiny band and to keep moving their only salvation. While others waited in their pens, the four from the private security company moved on, taking on as many they could help, in hopes that they too would join the fight. Their journey was long and arduous, but it was worth it...they hope.

The human race has turned to dust. August Morrison faces it after rising from the depths of a dark matter research facility in Arizona. His co-workers. His daughter. All of them: dust. Friends and colleagues around the world don’t answer their phones. The city of Phoenix burns. He is alone. As a world without mankind starts to crumble, August fights not just for survival, but for his very sanity. On the other side of the country, Poe McDowell watches her parents crumble into dust just moments after being shoved inside a coffin-like device that spares her from the same fate.

The Texas Safe Zone is home to four million refugees, trapped behind the walls of Fort Bliss - too many people and not enough food. In a desperate gamble, the Army unit responsible for securing the walls begins to cast its net far and wide for pre-outbreak food storage locations. Not everyone will make it home. For Sidney Bannister, the Safe Zone has become a nightmare she can no longer endure. She must find a way to leave before her baby is born or risk never experiencing freedom again.

it was a good story and well preformed by the narrator . it was not how ever a story about a storm. the main story was about a drug lord and smuggling drugs. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Growing up in the foster system, Della never really had anything to call her own, not even a last name. Now, the truth was exposed, but there was still so much she didn't know. Hoping to learn more about the mother she never knew and maybe discover a bit more about herself along the way, Della travels across the country seeking answers - and finds far more than she bargained for. An unimaginable world - one on the brink of war - is pulling her in and making her claim a birthright she never knew she wanted.

It spread fast - no time to understand it - let alone learn how to fight it. Once it reached you, it was too late. All you could do is run. Rumored safe zones and potential for a cure drifted across the populace, forcing tough decisions to be made. They say only the strong survive. Well, they forgot about the smart, the inventive, and the lucky.

Pilgrimage is a stand-alone post-apocalyptic story of survival. It was previously published as three separate novellas: Crossing, Refuge, and Advent. High School teacher James Rockwell is vacationing in Maine with his family, when an earth-changing explosion sends them on a race for their lives. Their first step is escaping an island in the midst of a tsunami, and it only gets more dangerous from there. Can they find their way home as civilization crumbles around them? And if they do, what horrors will they find?
