Publisher's Summary

From affluent beginnings, Bailey Dewitt's life has become a broken mess. After her parents died unexpectedly, she was sent to live with her renegade uncle in a community of preppers. She didn't think it could get any worse, but when the arrogance of man catches up and puts the entire world into a doomsday spiral, there will be only one place she can run to, the one place she wanted desperately to escape.

    "Wonderful"

    The story held me captivated. It was one I wanted to continue. The voice of the Narrator helped the story move smoothly without error.

    "Looking forward to the next book"

    I chose to listen to this audiobook after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.



    Retained picks up where Rendered left off. Bailey has tried to fit in with the community that her uncle belongs to but they decide she’s too much of a risk. She’s told she’s being taken back to finish school but Caleb takes her himself and insinuates that she never would have made it, that she would have “disappeared.” She can’t believe her uncle would have let them kill her!

    Again, there’s not really a lot to this book. Rendered and Retained could easily have been one book.

    Things start to go crazy when the weather turns cold and it looks like another Ice Age is possible. Caleb and Bailey decide to go back to The Ranch, hoping that she’ll be accepted by them since things have gotten so bad. When they get to The Ranch, it’s deserted. Will they be able to find the community members? Can they survive on their own?

    Samantha Jacobey is a good storyteller and this was a quick and easy read. The narrator, Sarah Rogers, did a good job enunciating and made it easy to listen to Retained. She had also narrated Rendered and it’s nice to have the same narrator in a series. The pauses were appropriate and I could differentiate between voices.

    I’m looking forward to reading (listening to) the next book and finding out what happens to Caleb and Bailey and hopefully get all my questions answered.
