When a bolt of lightning ignited a hilltop in the sleepy town of Yarnell, Arizona, in June of 2013, setting off a blaze that would grow into one of the deadliest fires in American history, the 20 men who made up the Granite Mountain Hotshots sprang into action. An elite crew trained to combat the most challenging wildfires, the Granite Mountain Hotshots were a ragtag family crisscrossing the American West and wherever else the fires took them. The Hotshots were loyal to one another and dedicated to the tough job they had.

Where does The Fire Line rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Excellent story - flows well, and the narration is great.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I live in Gilbert, AZ and remember still how this fire affected our whole state. This is a tragic story, and heartbreaking but also what a wonderful tribute to the fallen Hotshots.

The Darkness is a fast-paced story of survival that brings the apocalypse to Main Street USA. While the world falls apart, Jacob Anderson barricades his family behind locked doors. News reports tell of civil unrest in the streets, murders, and disappearances; citizens are warned to remain behind locked doors. When Jacob becomes witness to horrible events and the alarming actions of his neighbors, he and his family realize everything is far worse than being reported.

The narrator is awful. His glare for the dramatic is overdone and I'm so focused on how he speaks I can't get into the story. Don't do it!
