Publisher's Summary

In the face of a crisis that sweeps an entire high-tech planet back to the age before electricity, Deni Branning's career ambitions have vanished. She's not about to let her dream of marriage go as well.

But keeping it alive will require extraordinary measures. Yesterday's world is gone. All Deni and her family have left is each other and their neighbors. Their little community will either stand or fall together. But they're only beginning to realize that, and trust doesn't come easily.

Particularly when one of them is a killer.

Best-selling suspense author Terri Blackstock weaves a masterful what-if novel in which global catastrophe reveals the darkness in human hearts and lights the way to restoration for a self-centered world.

    "great story / did care for the reader tone"

    we have throughly enjoyed every Terri Blackstock book. we liked this one as well, but my only complaint was it was hard to hear the reader. with the phone turned up as loud as it would go we still struggled to hear. we have listen to many books on audio and have never had this problem, so I am not sure what was going on. I would recommend this book. though.

    "Good listen"

    I very much enjoyed this book. It took a few unexpected turns, which helps to keep your interest. Gives me alot to think about. Could I survive in those conditions? Could you? Look forward to the next book.

    "Not to be missed"

    Finally a religious survivalist combo that works. Developed well and no contrived situations. Enjoyed it from start to finish.

    Story
    "I want to have a discussion group around this book"
    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    The constant whining and complaining of the children does get pretty annoying. I am absolutely certain I would not be able to put up with them AND the lack of air-conditioning. I think the narrator contributes to my distaste for the children. I do like the general narration, but when he tries to do women and children, ugh.


    Any additional comments?

    There is something compelling about this series for me. I am fascinated by the images of life after the power goes out and how the family and the community respond to the intensive changes that surround them. I cannot help but put myself in some of these situations and wonder how I would react. Would I be mentally, physically, and spiritually strong enough to survive. The scenes in Walmart are especially frightening to me because I can so easily imagine something similar happening in the event of a natural disaster. The complete lack of authority and communication is stunning to me.

    "audio quality"

    it is a great book with a good story. however this book (and I've listened to many audible books) seemed top have a bit poorer audio quality, and even when i turned the volume up I heard more background noise than the audio.

    "Not as good as I had hoped."

    This book got me to think but it was not as good as I had hoped. It did not flow well.

    "What a terrifying thought!"

    As I listened to this story, I saw a lot of myself in there, and wonder how I would react. It was so carefully crafted to keep me on my toes, and so realistic.as I say in all your reviews, I pray that many, many thousands of people will come into His Kingdom thru your books, as they see how useless life is without Jesus. The narrator spoke beautifully, although the recorded volume was low so I had to listen through earplugs or speakers. But thank you for the book, absolutely brilliant!

    Story
    "Narrator ruined it for me"

    I have only been able to listen to about 20 minutes of this audiobook, which is a shame because I think the story might be engrossing. Instead of reading the book, the narrator attempts to act it out, with different voices (with accents seemingly from different parts of the country) for each family member. I prefer to use my imagination to picture what is happening rather than have someone dictate what the characters sound like. If you think a whining teenager is annoying in real life, try listening to a grown man imitate one.
