Publisher's Summary

The same flames which consume the chaff will purify the silver.

Unlike many of the people in their compound, Shane, Julianna, and Cole are still alive. However, their trial by fire is far from over.

The replacement currency has failed and America is crumbling from within. Roving gangs scour the country, preying on small towns which are too weak and unprepared to fend off their carnivorous attacks.

When one such band of ruffians show up in Sylva, NC, Shane and Julianna will have to strike a decisive blow before they are subjugated into slavery.

A spark has found a bed of tinder. The inferno of chaos may never stop burning.

If they are successful in their campaign against the lawless criminal biker gang, the next challenge will be taking on the IMF’s special commission, which is tasked with selling off all of the country’s assets in what amounts to a national bankruptcy. Profiteers swoop in like vultures ready to harvest the still-beating heart of America. With carte-blanche privileges, the pillagers make their own laws, take what they want, and force US citizens to carry out the abominable work of draining America dry of all her resources.

Will this blaze of destruction thaw Julianna’s frigid heart?

No matter how hard he tries to push it out of his mind, Shane can’t stop wondering what it would be like to hold Julianna in his arms. She has warmed somewhat, but still keeps him at arms’ length. Yet, the more he allows himself to dream about the family which could be, the more distracted he becomes from the mission at hand. If he fails to keep Julianna, Cole, and himself alive, nothing else will matter anyway.

Don’t miss the heart-stopping conclusion to the Black Swan trilogy. Listen to Gehenna today!

Another great series.

You know a story is well written when you're involved enough to get mad at the characters. This was another book at the high level of Goodwin's talent. The series is a bit short, but well worth reading.

Goodwin delivers again!

Goodwin's series get better and better. It's great reading books where I know language and content won't be an issue. He does a good job of having diversity among his series and not rehashing already trodden ground. I hope he continues to write more fiction. Can't get enough.

Great listen

The story is excellent however, I think at times the dialogue was a little too complicated or intellectual in some conversations I.e youth speaking above anything that an average child would and some lengthy discussions that the author uses to educate the reader that said… the discussions do educate so not sure how he would have written it differently
Very good book that I fervently hope readers take to heart

Another Great Trilogy

I love Mark Goodwin’s books & Kevin Pierce is an excellent narrator. I’m a Christian and his books are all clean and very inspiring. They keep me so interested I can’t wait to get from one to the next. I usually don’t write reviews, made an exception this time because I so enjoy his books.

Out of the frying pan...

Mark Goodwin’s third installment of his Black Swan trilogy is a fast-paced series of victories and setbacks for his impetuous hero-in-the-making, Shane Black. This is a no-holds-barred glimpse of how bad things could easily become in post US America. Better yet is that there’s no bad language or depictions of sex scenes.
