Publisher's Summary

This publisher's pack contains Society (book three) and Hope (book four) of the After It Happened series.

Society, book three:

Set in the UK in the immediate aftermath of a mysterious illness which swept the country and left millions dead, the series follows the trials facing a reluctant hero, Dan, and the group he forms around him. They must battle the elements, find sufficient supplies and equipment to survive, and protect themselves against the most destructive force on the planet: other people.

The survivors have prospered, but their home is an enticing prospect for others to take. Besieged, they must respond with a savagery to dissuade further attempts.

Is this the end of society?

Hope, book four:

In the aftermath of the shocking revelations about the propagation of the human race, Dan latches on to a desperate chance to change the future which many have accepted. The group splits and Dan leads his closest allies on an uncertain journey to find a solution. They find themselves battling against the elements, against new foes, and above all, against time.

They must succeed.

They must have hope.

Can’t wait for next installment!

I’m listened to most of the popular PA books and this is my favorite so far. There is good character development and the storyline is quick and engaging. I love how conflicts come and go instead of a long build to a single conflict at the end. Usually by book 4 I’m losing interest but I found myself liking each book more! Release the next book quick!!!

Fantastic Series! Cant wait for the next one...

Great story and the narration is terrific. I was hooked after the first chapter of book one and I find myself waiting for the next book to come out on audible. I could easily listen to the whole book straight through but I force myself to go to work and wait until my ride home to continue!! I've listened to a few post apocalyptic books but the whole zombie thing just gets tiring, I don't really get the attraction of the zombie stories but to each his own. I prefer this story line as it opens my imagination as to what would really happen if 99% of the population was suddenly gone and how would we cope with the struggle to survive. The inevitable conflict that arises and the reinvention of basic technology is all very interesting to me. I highly recommend this series.

One of my favorites

It’s a new favorite! No zombies, more realistic as to what the end of the world may look like. I really like the story line and characters. I also appreciate that the author isn’t ruthlessly killing off characters constantly to keep our attention, but using the story and character development instead. That’s not to say we don’t lose favorites but it’s not the entire plot like some of the other authors in this genre tend to employ.

Damn good story

RC Bray is ALWAYS a good listen. This PA story is pretty good and I'm glad the author decided to change up the primary location. I'm not excited that the location is Africa - its always Africa. I'm looking forward to the last Audible in this series - which I believe combines the last two books in the series.

High Octane Society!

This series has proved to be a real find.  Each of the books in the first four follows the same group but has its own unique flavour.  The first two were largely about the initial group forming and then a very logical and structured progression towards a new society.  Book 3, Society,  is much more explosive, it is almost non-stop action as the new homeland is threatened in all manner of ways.  The group also find ways to investigate the origins of the pandemic.  The epilogue feels hugely ominous, it's extremely well done.

Then the fourth book. Hope, takes off in yet another completely new direction as the group splits with Dan leading a team on the start of an epic journey desperate to find answers. During both books the characters continue to develop, especially Leah and Ash.  Yes the dog steals the show at times!  The story is split between Dan's group and the enormous struggle faced by those left behind after losing much of the group's driving force. 

RC Bray, I don't think there's much I can say here that hasn't already been said.  Superb, and he is even more suited to these latest two books with their increased tension and higher octane levels.

In short this is becoming an extremely strong series especially with the excellent decision to provide these value for money / credit publisher's packs.

Bit more depressing than the 1st book

Brilliant series, wish the next book was available.

Takes a good look at the idea of thinking about the bigger picture and not just the welfare of a small group of people.
