Publisher's Summary

In the Borrowed World Series, America is brought to its knees by coordinated terror attacks against the infrastructure. After spending weeks walking across a violent and horrific landscape to reach his family, Jim Powell hoped they could weather this storm on their secluded Appalachian farm. They had prepared for this. They had armed for this. They could live without power and fuel. What happens, though, when the same qualities that drew Jim to his isolated valley begin to attract another armed group looking for a place to hide from the unrest of a starving nation?

Franklin Horton's Borrowed World Series has been a best seller in the categories of Post-Apocalyptic and Dystopian Science Fiction. He has been interviewed extensively for podcasts and for print media on the topic of preparedness. The series is noted for its realistic portrayal of how average Americans might be affected by societal collapse.

Story is getting long in the tooth

Franklin Horton's first books in a series have never disappointed me and always makes me want more. The first book in the series was great with an interesting plot though set in a typical context. Each successive book seems to have dulled the edge more and more. Still, it's a serviceable SHTF series.

If you haven't yet read the first book and enjoy this genre, go get it. If you've read the books prior to this, you can pass on this without missing anything. Narration was excellent and Kevin Pierce does a terrific job as he has in the previous volumes.

Leaves you wanting the next book

There are a lot of great authors out there but Franklin is a cut above. Flows well and leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat.

Excellent story and great narration.

Really enjoyed the fourth installment in the Borrowed World Series. Mr. Horton continued to develop the characters and introduces new situations that continue to keep me wanting more. His ability to give the reader an emotional attachment to the characters really makes these books stand out. Can't wait for the next one!

Wonderful writing.

Franklin Horton surprises me with each book he puts out. This book shows his depth by pulling the listener deep inside the characters emotional being. Combined with the grand storytelling ability of Kevin Pierce I felt the characters fears, loss. anger and joy. Franklin Horton has quickly became one of my favorite authors .

A great continuation of the Saga in The Valley!

Where does No Time for Mourning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 10

What did you like best about this story?

No fatalities to the main characters, not ready for any of them to die off although I thought it was about to happen a couple of times.

Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

Jim, because of his dedication to his family and the no non-sense approach he has to doing whatever it takes regardless of how hard it may be.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud several times during some of the conversations between Randi, Lloyd and Buddy. However, my most extreme outburst of laughter was after Gary made his shot and the exchange between him and Jim...not going to elaborate and give it away...LMAO!!!

Any additional comments?

Just love Mr Horton's ability to make me laugh and then cry within 15 minutes of each other, which also has to do with Kevin's tremendous gift of narration. Definitely one of the top five combos of author & narrator in the business!

Couldn't turn it off...

Another fantastic story.. gripping, worried, happy, crying.... knowing the characters now, the story has you running through all the emotions of life and you feel the pain and elation during this chapter. Kevin Pearce is a master of his trade and compliments these books magnificently.

My cup of tea.

I love the story line of the entire series so far and I am just about to buy book 5, great job Franklin Horton.

The narrator also does a great job of bringing the series to life, thanks Kevin Pierce.
