Publisher's Summary

Newly revised version now read by award-winning narrator Sean Runnette! 

From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. 

Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began, and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. 

With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine. 

Can one teenage girl and her dream of a better life really change the whole world?

SEAN GIVES THIS A UNIQUE TWIST! SURPRISE ENDING!

Well, I like how Mark rebranded this one...I see what he did...and I think I kinda know where he is gonna go with this one; Well maybe..Mark is unpredictable most times....But I like what I heard! I loved the old version too, this one took me a minute to settle into, because I had listened to the old one 3 times and was in love with the characters already, I could hear them in my head, the old way...lol I am huge Sean Runnette fan, so it just took a bit to get used to this way..and he did a great job, he gave the story a lot of heart, and humor...and he made me believe it all over again...Im really excited that Winter made it this time..and I cant wait to listen to the next one!!!

ANOTHER WINNER MR TUFO!!! I RECOMMEND!!!!

Brilliant

Worth 10 credits. I can't wait for the next one! Great story for teens to 100 year olds. Fun links to characters from the authors other series. Hunger game feel but with wonderful questions.

mark tufo and sean do it again

Sean is a wonderful narrator. The revamping of this book is awsome! Winter is a strong female character so many books lack.

So Good!

I just loved this book and can't wait for the next one! Narrator was awesome, of course, and I have not read anything by Mark Tufo that I haven't liked. Zombies are still my favorite, but this is well worth the read/listen and highly recommended!

How far in the Dystance.....

The world as we know it is gone. The world that came after the world that we know is gone also. All there is now is orchestrated wars between klans. Why? No one really knows, it's just the way it it's. Dytance and her discovery has given her a peek into the world the way it use to be and a yearning for the freedom she before never knew existed.

better and better

Sean runnette narrates this tufo story wonderfully. having read the book some time ago and seeing that the sequel is around the corner I decided to refresh my mind and listened to it. the story is excellent and second time round I realised how well it fits into the tufoverse.
definitely recommended
