Three years ago, the sun began to die. In a desperate attempt to reignite the failing star, the United States joined the rest of the planet in unloading its nuclear arsenal at the flickering ember. The missiles burst from silos in Wyoming and Bangladesh, cocooning the Earth in tendrils of smoke as they began their two-and-a-half year journey into space. When they finally reach their target, it's 30 degrees in July and getting colder. Lisa and her husband, Guy, sit shivering on a South Carolina hilltop, watching as humanity's best hope at survival shimmers faintly...then disappears below the horizon.
A group of militant rebels called the Minutemen take advantage of the ensuing chaos to knock out power grids, cloaking the freezing Earth in near darkness. Seizing control. To escape this ruthless new world order, Lisa and Guy join a reluctant band of refugees crossing the snow-covered South in search of shelter and answers. From an icy parking lot in Atlanta to the Minutemen's makeshift headquarters at Asheville's Biltmore Estate, only one thing is certain: In a world with little light, nothing is guaranteed - least of all survival.

Great Book but not for me.
Written well with a strong story. Unfortunately the narrative did not resonate with me. Still a solid 'would' recommend 7/10.
I'm so glad I didn't give up on this book!
I rarely write reviews. Minor spoilers below:
When Guy turned the fleeing car around to pick up his mistress, I almost put the book down. I'm so happy I didnt. I cried at the end. Hopefully there will be a second book soon?!
