Publisher's Summary

The nanotechnology was designed to fight cancer. Instead, it evolved into the machine plague, killing nearly five billion people and changing life on Earth forever.

The nanotech has one weakness: it self-destructs at altitudes above ten thousand feet. Those few who've managed to escape the plague struggle to stay alive on the highest mountains, but time is running out. There is famine and war, and the environment is crashing worldwide. Humanity's last hope lies with a top nanotech researcher aboard the International Space Station -- and with a small group of survivors in California who risk a daring journey below the death line...

terrible story, terrible narration, terrible !!!!

Not worth a download a losten or even a second though. Move on by and don't look back. I've never had a worse book to date... boring, monotone, dull and i gave it quite a few chapters before i could do no more. Each to their own but I can't in good conscious recommend this book. 😩

Difficult listen and read

Narrator did not follow through word for word with the book, and sometimes paragraphs were skipped or rephrased.

Book was too draggy and too much in depth detail about the littlest things.
