Publisher's Summary

Grace Hardwick was raised to be a survivor. Her dad taught her how to how to fight and how to think on her feet, hoping she'd never need those skills. When society fell apart around her, she needed all that and more. There was nothing in her life to this point that prepared her for the random violence, the brutality, and the cruelty of a starving and desperate populace turning on each other.

In the highly-anticipated sequel to Locker Nine, Franklin Horton takes us on a breakneck dystopian thrill ride where you cannot let your guard down. Every peaceful moment could be the preamble to the next act of random violence. Every moment an exhausted traveler spends sleeping could be the moment an attacker's knife curls around their neck.

Picking up immediately after the last book we find Grace taking refuge in a secure compound in the Southern Appalachians. After reuniting with her father, she expected that the remainder of her journey home would be uneventful. Her dad was with her now - things would be okay. She couldn't have been more wrong.

Nothing in this new life is easy. Grace and her friend Tom, a physically-challenged veteran utilizing a specially-outfitted track chair, find themselves suddenly thrown back in the fight. Robert Hardwick and Tom's mother become separated from their children and find themselves under attack from a highly-skilled and heavily-armed force. Most alarming of all, an innocent comment from a child's lips puts the remainder of Grace's family directly in the cross-hairs of a violent sociopath. If he is able to carry out his plans, Grace and her father will not have a home, or even a family, to return to.

Franklin Horton and Kevin Pierce are perfect combo

I don't normally write long reviews but I thought this book was worth it. Perfect combination of action and storyline. The addition of some very interesting characters renewed my interest in the storyline. I also absolutely loved how one of the new characters in this book got to do a crossover and meet characters from one of Franklin Horton's other books that was also narrated by Kevin Pearce. If you're on the fence about this book you should definitely buy it, it's worth the credit.

Absolutely loved it!

I've read all of Franklin Hortons books and each one grabs you and doesn't let go. Grace Under Fire is my favorite so far, but I've said that about all the other too.

Once again this author leaves me longing for more

So many times an author has a hard time keeping the series alive and fresh, but not Franklin. You can tell he writes from the heart and paired with Narrator extraordinaire Kevin Pierce, he manages to bring us right back to the edge with this offering. I found this adventure to be even more action packed and wrought with the pain and suffering of what you would expect in times like these. As well you introduced the "Paul" and unfortunate
and very real danger to all walks of life in our country. They exist on the lowest levels of humanity and offer nothing and expect everything! The "Pauls" will be one of the most dangerous forms of foe to your existence when the SHTF really happen. I can say enough
good about this latest novel except bring on the next one!

Can't wait for book #3

Franklin Horton has done it again. Another exciting and compelling story in the series. His characters are "real" and he makes you feel for them and their struggles to survive they are like there are friends that you never met. The narrator or should I say "voice actor" makes the characters come to life and draws you into the story. Simply one of the best. Could not put the book down and consumed it in two days, ready for more.

Awesome!

So, I love this author. ALL of his books. I screamed my head off when I found out there was a sequel to Locker 9. When I listened to the crossover with the characters from the Borrowed World series, I was over the moon! My teen son and I are both huge fans, and looking forward to more books from both the author and the narrator! Well done!

Loved it!

Locker Nine is a book that has stuck in my memory. Excellent prepper/survivalist book! Grace under fire is just as good! In book one, Grace is trying to make her way home after a terrorist attack in the country. Luckily her dad is a well connected man. He was an author of prepper and survivalist books. Robert (her father) had a plan in place for his daughter just in case of an emergency. He stashed away a vehicle and supplies in a storage facility near Grace's college to help her get home. He even had a network of friends along the way to help her if help was needed. Grace finds help and friends at the farm. Book 2 picks up with Grace and her new friend Tom, a disabled veteran. They finally make it back to her home town with the help of more of her father's connections. When they reach her home she has a new set of problems to deal with. Her family was in danger! It's up to her, Tom, and yet another of Robert's connections to help take back her home.

Excellent book and great narration by Kevin Pierce. I honestly couldn't imagine anyone else doing this series! Can't wait for book 3!
