Publisher's Summary

"The characters are compelling and real, the setting devastatingly dystopian, and the action-packed story, as original as anything I've read in a very long time. This is a big event series that should be a big event Hollywood franchise." (Jim Thompson, Original Content)

The end has come, and there's nowhere to hide.

In the aftermath of a cataclysmic eruption, America becomes a wasteland trapped in a suffocating volcanic winter. In 16-year-old Sera Donner's isolated Pacific Northwest town, thousands are dead and hundreds are missing - including her own mother. With precious resources running low, neighbor turns against neighbor, sparking a brutal civil war, and when the new survivalist regime decides Sera's disabled brother isn't fit to live, she picks up the rifle she's vowed never to touch and fights to defend those she loves.

Mysterious Micah Abrams is Sera's only comfort in the chaos; Micah clings to an inexplicable hope that Sera finds hard to resist but difficult to understand. She longs to let down her guard and reveal to him a secret that's tearing her apart. But with the stakes higher than ever, can Sera really trust a schoolyard bully suddenly turned prophet?

As the battle over control of the community reaches a fevered pitch, a powerful military leader marches into town with an imposing force, offering food, water, and promises of salvation. Everyone thinks the worst is finally over.

They're wrong.

Excellent reader!

Having already read the book last year, I wanted to read it again and decided to let audible read it to me. Wow! Gabrielle de Cuir does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life with her versatile voice. I'm so looking forward to book 2.

Interesting...

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story was weak, the audio was... really bad... although the topic was interesting.

What was most disappointing about Suzanne Leonhard’s story?

too much jumping around.... hard to follow at times...

Would you be willing to try another one of Gabrielle de Cuir’s performances?

Wow... don't get me started, it was really bad...

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was interesting and I did finish it.

Any additional comments?

no...
