Publisher's Summary

The chaos that recently gripped America has been replaced with an era of prosperity and joy. Markets are flourishing, people are happy, and the country is in recovery. Although much was lost in the turmoil of the previous year, the country was feeling as if they’d dodged a bullet.

Dave Cavanaugh, the silver haired outdoorsman, mountain hiker, and billionaire dubbed the “Richard Branson of the Rockies,” presses ahead with his audacious plan to build walled, gated communities across the country to preserve art, science, medicine, and religion. These Arks of America are planned to be islands of hope during times of strife, chaos, and uncertainty.  

An early investor in the program, Liz Pendleton, the beautiful auburn haired actress from Kentucky, is back at work making movies. Both she and Dave are concerned for Vince Cavanaugh, the billionaire’s nephew, a divorced, gruff ex-Special Forces soldier who’s experiencing a deep personal calamity, leaving him a shell of his former self.  

Without Vince the entire Arks of America program could fail. 

In the prosperity of the post-chaotic America, the group who so recently survived together is spread across the country when the unthinkable happens again. 

Are they prepared to support the people who need them?
Can the government right one more crisis?
Can Vince summon the strength to be the hero they need?

Waiting for book 3

The story was fluid and easy to listen to. This book is a fast action packed space opera with romantic moments.

Thank goodness

Ok, first possible spoiler thank you so much for not killing off certain characters as one in particular is my favorite and my anger at one point almost caused me to stop reading(being vague so as not to drop too much of a spoiler) . Next it's so great to read something with some political common sense(seems improbable to have those 2 notions in one phrase) on the plausible results of some ideals, as well as some solid preparedness ideas. The writing is good, story is great, and characters make you believe in heroes/heroines again. The narration is great as well. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because I'm wary of giving unfinished series 5 stars so authors don't get lazy, I would have given a 4.7 at least though with more precise measurements.

Entertaining and recommended.

Personally I am a little upset how you left the book..... I need to know what happens next! so please please please finish book 3 so I can learn more. I love this genre and find them fun and exciting. I also agree our country could be headed for a decline. Thanks D.A. for keeping me entertained.

Great Continuation of the Story; Excellent Narrator

D. A. Carey created a little spin at the beginning of the this book, which was unexpected and grabbed my attention from the get-go. While I already had a great idea of the characters from the first book, we got a deeper look into them in this continuation. These well rounded characters, the realistic exchanges between them and the well written story that balances action and depth, all made the story one I didn’t want to put down.

Another excellent performance by Michael Driggs! I could listen to him all day!

a post-apocalypse action story without much action

many missed opportunities throughout the story. the author seems to have phoned this one in.

Narrator makes females sound hysterical

Not unusually, the male narrator has difficulty portraying a range of emotions that the female characters express. This assumes of course that the author did not write it as thus.

Good story overall. Will be purchasing third instalment. Am wondering at authors knowledge of subject matter. Does not detract from overall good story. I recommend.

Amazing!

I can not wait to hear more from this series in the near future! From the writing and the narrator I was hooked on ever chapter. I was more then pissed to think that Vince was killed off and true to his life he is truly hard to kill. As a veteran I see alot of the struggles and connections to the characters and find it a great way to work through problems. Great work and keep up the series.
