As always Danielle Steel’s book is awesome and Gideon Emery did really great job with the narration, this was my first time listening to his narration and I will definitely watch for him in the future. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who likes historical books or just wants to read a really great book!

In an impossible situation, our story of a mini ice age starts with hopefulness spanning to heartbreak. How will Bishop and the others survive impossible odds as they seek to bring those they love to shelter. And is the Osprey, and all those on board, truly gone forever? How will Jax and the others make their way on such a perilous journey? The brutality of survival in this post-apocalyptic world leaves little hope for humanity after the Maunder Minimum. Perhaps they're lost after all.

As I have said before this author does a wonderful job writing these books but I think that nearly $15.00 for a 4 to 5 hour book is definitely over priced!!! The 1st book was A little over 5 hours as was the second book so if you add that up you are looking at less than 15 hours which could and less money for the customer have been 2 books I will definitely watch all of my purchases. I am a senior citizen and have a small amount of income.
I do enjoy A. R. Shaw’s Books(I hope that you will consider the price issue)but they are much, better with Kevin Pierce narrating them.

In the year 2030 the Maunder Minimum, a period of solar inactivity, will cause a mini-ice age like it did between the years 1645 and 1710. When it does, Bishop will have to save her not only from the effects of severe weather but also from man himself. Maeve Tildon and her son Ben live alone in the rural town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Since her husband died in the war, she's barely kept her head above water, and when the first freeze strikes in the fall, she's completely unprepared for what lies ahead.

Surrender the Sun, couldn’t be better, my only complaint is the book is to short for how much we’re charged: this book has 2 sequels each book being about 550 pages equal about 1650 pages if that were divided by 2 it would make 2 books instead of 3. I realize that makes the author a little less money but then the older person can afford to read the entire series. As it is I and others can’t read all three books. Henderson, NV

I’m not sure if I’ve ever read a more awesome series of books at least not since I was a child. Rebecca Donovan hit it out of the ballpark with these books. I’m sure that I’ll read them many times as I tend to do when I love them as I do. I’m 71 and I’ve read Little Women at least once a year is since I was 10. And the Five little Peppers as much, until the book fell apart about 10 years ago and I’ve been unable to find another cop
Kate Rudd also did a wonderful job, if I had one complaint it was when she was reading the male parts I had a hard time determining whomever was speaking I always thought that it was Evan until enough was said to help me decide, I didn’t seem to have a problem with her speaking the female parts.

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

Missing for almost two years, the castaways are thrust into the spotlight after their rescue, becoming media darlings overnight. But they can't tell the real story--so they lie.

Takers had made their presence known, and their malevolent intentions clear, transforming the once benign community into a violent battleground.
