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.

    Story
    "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!

    "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!

    "fantastic continuation!"

    the story continues with some fantastic new characters you will be excited to get to know all the while written so as not to treat the reader like an idiot.
    the writer is skilled in the art of leaving the reader wanting more but not in a cheap cliff hanger fashion. never once did I get the feeling this book 2 was being written just to sell book 3. I can not wait for the rest of the story to unfold.
    I need more of the giant Preacher and Miss Dotty!

    "Becoming an average PA story"
    Where does Advent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks in the top 10 due to the female narrator. 99% of the PA books i've listened to have had a male narrator. The female voice is refreshing.


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

    Kevin Pierce has read a few other stories/series that I've come across and I've found him to be pleasant over all. He isnt a master of voices and characters like some that i've heard, but he is still enjoyable to listen to. Becket is sort of the same. This series is the first I've heard from her and just a female voice in a PA novel is refreshing.


    Any additional comments?

    The author starts the first book with a disclaimer that she wrote the book in the aspect that most PA books are written with the main character having been a "prepper" with lots of money... she wrote this book/series with the aim of going the opposite direction and not writing about the "rich preppers". Gideon starts out strong with book 1, but this book, book 2 sorta goes 50/50. With Book 2, Gideon dives into more of the mental dealings and how each character copes with certain situations that are basically inherent of the PA/CME (these are basically standard situations that will likely, inevitable, occur in any type of PA). With Book 3 and the main characters having arrived at their destinations, I think Gideon can get back to her desired portrayal of a PA without being a prepper with money. It seems her goal is to tell a story of people surviving a PA with intelligence and common sense and pooling together the necessary knowledge and resources, rather than have planned or prepared in advance for a PA situation.

    I want more on Ripley and does Preacher end up protecting the family or going back to the brotherhood?

    "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!!!!!!

    "Fresh Take on TEOTWAWKI"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters. So glad to not hear gun descriptions every other chapter! I can't wait for the next one! This is my favorite series at this time and I read/listen to tons of Apocalyptic novels.


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

    Kevin Pierce is by far my favorite narrator! I love being read to rather than listening to an overacted radio play which some "narrators" tend to do. Kevin Pierce adds so much and never gets in the way of the book!


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

    Absolutely!

    "Do not waste the credit"

    This book lacks character development and shows no understanding of human nature. The characters are either extremely good, bad or clueless, no matter the situation. The main character shows no ability to adept to the changing situation. The "I'm going to be a good person no matter what" mentality of the main character is sickening. Please don't waste the credit.

    "Disappointed"

    I bought this because I like the first one. The first hour maybe hour and a half of this book is Word for Word from the first book so I was disappointed with that. Then it took me less than a day to listen to it. Maybe that's OK for some folks but I prefer a longer story that I can really get into. I hope the series doesn't continue like this with small short books.
