Emily Baxter’s dream life turns into a waking nightmare the day the red rain falls. Like a biblical plague, the scarlet downpour spreads a hideous virus that demolishes life in New York City, the nation, and the world. Suddenly the last soul in an annihilated metropolis - and possibly on Earth - the onetime newspaper reporter must learn to scavenge, survive...and plan for a future of utter solitude. Then, from far-flung Alaska, another living voice reaches out, and Emily grasps at her only glimmer of hope. But she may be even less alone than she thinks.

this book is very slow going to start. The main character is so dumb. She make some choices and doesn't take advantage of things that she could to help her on her journey. Half expected her to die in the first book.

Victoria McQueen has an uncanny knack for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. When she rides her bicycle over the rickety old covered bridge in the woods near her house, she always emerges in the places she needs to be. Vic doesn't tell anyone about her unusual ability, because she knows no one will believe her. She has trouble understanding it herself.

this book was awful! The narrator was terrible. And the whole storyline was just as bad as if not worse. the author of this book is in my opinion disgusting. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Amy is watching TV when the world is attacked by Them. Most of the population is overtaken, but Amy manages to survive - and even rescue "Baby" a toddler she finds in an abandoned supermarket. Then, after years of hiding, they are miraculously rescued and taken to New Hope, a colony of survivors living in a former government research compound. While at first the colony seems like a dream, with plenty of food, safety, and shelter, New Hope slowly reveals that it is far from ideal. And Amy soon realizes that unless things change, she'll lose Baby - and much more.

ok story line and decent charecters. the female narator who I have listened to in books before was really good. the male narrator made the story a little less enjoyable for me. all in all not a terrible book but I probably would not recommend it to anybody .

this book started out really slow. At times it was kind of hard to follow and pretty boring. In the end it was kind of pointless.
