Publisher's Summary

In this fifth installment in The Borrowed World Series, human resources manager Alice Watkins is finally making it home. In her journey across Virginia, she experiences a country disintegrating and collapsing in on itself in the wake of a nationwide terror attack. Her trip home is agonizing; her experiences indescribable.

She finds that her peaceful farm community is experiencing the same strife as the rest of the nation. As her world is further shaken by a series of devastating occurrences, she comes to realize that she has been profoundly and irreversibly changed by her agonizing experiences on the road. She is both emotionally blunted and wickedly violent. She cannot feel love, nor does she feel the slightest remorse at taking someone's life.

In an attempt to find safety for her family, she must reconnect with the former coworkers that she started this journey with. She discovers the group struggling with their own problems, finding that in this borrowed world there is no promise of safety, no peace, and no promise of tomorrow.

    "Mr Horton Just Keep on Bringing It!!!"
    Where does Valley of Vengeance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among the best, along with all of the books of this series!


    What other book might you compare Valley of Vengeance to and why?

    The other four books of this series.


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

    I can't really pick just one as Kevin does such a superb job with all of the characters. He's simply the best in the business!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was really not expecting Alice's character to go the direction she did, not to give anything away.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to just about every post-apocalyptic series on audio book, or at least the ones worth listening to, and this is one of the best series there is. First of all, it's Kevin Pierce, secondly, it's Franklin Horton...top writer w/ the top narrator. Every book is filled with a roller coaster of emotions coupled with unexpected twists & turns. I hope this series never ends!

    "ANOTHER WINNER!! COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!!"
    If you could sum up Valley of Vengeance in three words, what would they be?

    Awesome as always!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I think in this one it was Alice...she was very brave!!


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

    See above please!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did shed some tears...there were some tough losses!!


    Any additional comments?

    I love this writer/narrator combo and am always thrilled when the next book in this series comes out.....I am not sure with the way this one ended if we will be getting another one....I hope so, or at least a continuation of the Locker Nine series...This one showed how brutal a P/A can get and I was impressed with the bravery and courage of these characters...I listened all night long and could not put it down...It was Great!!!!<br/><br/>I RECOMMEND THIS ENTIRE SERIES!!!!

    "Top of the Genre!"

    Just finished and I'm going right back to the beginning. A dogged Pace amazing visuals and awesome one liners. Horton has distinguished himself as the best Pierce already was my fav. Glad I was home alone for the last hour a lot of woohooing. :)

    "Excellent"

    Franklin Horton cannot put a foot wrong with this series of books. The main protagonist, Jim, is believable and it is easy to empathise with him. The narration is brilliant.

    Keep them coming Franklin.
