Publisher's Summary

Ripley and her friends have escaped the University's lockdown and started their journey home on foot. They've found an opportunity to get supplies they sorely need, but the risk is high. Marco insists that the world is already far more dangerous than it seems, while Ripley's not yet convinced.

She's about to get a very bloody wake-up call.

Back home, Dotty worries over her little makeshift family, scattered to the four winds. Her neighbor is already out of food and getting pushy. There's been a riot, and a man was killed. Holiday travelers, stranded without gas, fill the town's parking lots. The elderly have begun dying. At the edge of town, watching over the Federal prison, the Sheriff faces a horrible decision.

The idyllic little town of Snow Hill is a powder keg, and the Mayor is holding a match.

Over the past century, people had become so reliant on electricity that they forgot how to provide for themselves. With the push of a button, food cooked in minutes. Endless clean water flowed from the faucets. Freezers preserved food for years. Stores were open 24 hours a day; there was no need to keep a pantry. What once had been thought of as magic had become...normal.

Ripley and Dotty are about to discover that normal has left the building.

Reality, with all of its hardships and danger, has arrived.

Not everyone will survive it.

There is no place like home?

This was a really solid continuation of the series and I just find myself liking it more and more. This story picks up right where book 1 ended. Folloing 2 different POV, there is still no power and our main characters are trying to make it home with many different road blocks. I really enjoyed how the author not only showed the dark side of people in crisis but also the kind side throughout this story. This helps the author keep events fresh and the reader engaged. During this story you can really see the change in our main character's attitudes shifting from blissful and naive to nervous and ruthless. As this series progresses the author chooses to leave some events to the listener's imagination, which I am okay with but still nosy about. SO maybe a side novella or explaination in a future book. This story was done with duel narration and both did a wonderful job. Each narrator bring something different to the table and gel together very well. This is what brings the author's words to life. Our group of survivors journey is far from over and I can't wait to see what is in store next. Hurry book 3!

My new favorite Prepper Series!!

Where does Advent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top, finally a great book from a woman's point of view. I CAN NOT wait for the 3rd book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Advent?

Ripley knew it was a trap. With each step home she is learning more and more.

Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce and Becket Royce ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, and I love them together!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I couldn't stop listening.

Any additional comments?

D. GIDEON PLEASE DON'T KEEP US WAITING TOO LONG FOR THE 3RD BOOK!!!!!!

Another great book from D Gideon

This was excellent 2nd book in the series and a phenomenal performance by the narration team. I have so many books narrated by Kevin Pierce I've lost count. He is like an old friend telling a story and makes the characters seem very real. Beckett Royce does an excellent job and the concept of male/female narration is a good idea. Can't wait for the next one!

familiar story but excellent character building

does have the feel of a realistic scenario with people's psychological response to multiple major shifts in sociological and Community reaction to severe disaster. book 1 and book 2 worth the read.

Good story, and awesome narration!

It's one of the more realistic post-apocoliptic stories, but the best narration I've found yet!

“Normal Had Left The Building”

4.5 out of 5 stars

The CME had already destroyed most of the infrastructure that people were used to using. Especially the power. And it wasn’t coming back anytime soon. People are being lied to and don’t even know it. Things are about to get a whole lot worse. Normal had left the building.

I had to go back and re-read my review of the first book in this series. I know that I liked the dual narration and it was my first book by Becket Royce. But, I couldn’t remember if I liked or loved the first book. Turns out I liked it a lot but didn’t love it love it.

Well, this book either hit me at the right time or something was even more enjoyable. I think first off, this was a true “post-apocalyptic” book instead of being a “pre/during the apocalypse” book. Things are starting to hit the fan and people are starting to freak out. I love a book like this, especially when it’s written from different points of view like Gideon did in Advent.

The back and forth (and switch narrators) really helped make this book for me. A lot of times you’re forced to see everything from one person’s point of view, and if you don’t like them or how they are written it can ruin a whole book for you. When given numerous point of views you get to see the apocalypse from all sorts of positions, ages, and wealth/preparedness levels. I really enjoyed that aspect of Advent.

The story itself dealt with a lot of walking and traveling which can get boring, but they kept coming across people and situations that really helped move this from a 4-star to a 5-star book.

The “change” of some of the characters (coming into their own and realizing things about themselves) was also really fun to listen to. I think that Gideon did a good job writing about these changes and how the people felt about what was changing both internally and around them.

The relationship and friendship building also took this book to another level for me. There were a few parts where I actually almost cried some tears of joy and happiness because of something that happened. And also tears of sadness for other parts. I realized that I was emotionally invested in them and their survival. Which shows me just how well this book was written.

Overall, a book that really came into its own. Sunfall: Advent was a definitely a thrill ride from beginning to end.

I received a free copy of this book. It has not affected my review of my opinion.
