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.

Really enjoying the series.

The Borrowed World has been one of my favorites in the post apocalyptic survivor fiction. I am anxiously awaiting Book 5.
I usually buy the audiobook as well so I can listen while I'm doing chores or driving.
Kevin Pierce is an incredible narrator!
His voice really enhances the trading experience

Book Two....now you're hooked!

I intend this review to cover the entire Borrowed World series. Point of fact, I could not stop listening to them. I think Franklin Horton's work here is fantastic. Nicely paced, full of action, with well developed antagonists,to say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. I appreciate how Mr. Horton stays away from politics and religion (for the large part), and the motivation of the protagonist is universal enough that any reader can slip into his skin. Good job, I look forward to seeing the "Valley Tribe" fares through the winter! Write more, Mr. Horton! Quit your day job and write more!

Book Filler

Would you try another book from Franklin Horton and/or Kevin Pierce?

I think I am done with Franklin Horton. After reading four of his books he still hasn't gotten the pacing and storytelling correct. The timing in his stories are way off and has been since book 1. Kevin Pierce rocked as always. Love listening to him.

Would you ever listen to anything by Franklin Horton again?

No I think I am good at this point. Four books in and he still has the same issues as he started with. I thought he was getting them worked out in book 3 and looking back on it I think it was just because I was getting used to his inconsistencies in storytelling.

Which scene was your favorite?

None. This book was forced. It didn't add anything to the story. He could have stopped with 3 books.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Sadness. Horton has some great ideas for stories but the mechanics are horrible. If they were better written this story premise would be incredible.
