Great Story with great narration

I did not listen to Book 1. This story is a story of people coming together to help each other. Not everyone is there to be helpful. As in society there is always a trouble maker. I enjoyed this story.

The narration is super. Another great job by J Scott Bennett. I have listened to other books by this narrator and they have all been excellently narrated.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Continued story with emotion

This is the continuation of Allison's Secret. It begins with the group finding more bad guys and helping people to survive. The point of this book is that everyone you help may not be appreciative.

The book goes into great detail about the healing aspects of herbs and oils. It also is informative and helpful in pointing out other aspects of living without modern power and conveniences.

Book three should prove very interesting indeed.

The narration is exceptional and very clear and the range of voices is great.

This book was provided free of charge with the expectation of an honest review.

Great Series!

Loving this series! Society is broken by solar flare but in one little corner of the world they are over coming trials of the new world. The author does a fantastic job with the story and the characters. The narrator does an amazing job interpreting the characters and bringing them to life. Great series and narration. Great addition toy library and a book that I could listen to several times.

Great second book in the series

I really enjoyed this second book in the series. From neighbors helping neighbors, to cold-blooded killers and heart-breaking betrayals, this story is full of tension, drama and has lots of survival and herbalist tips. While it still has its action filled parts, the story centers more on how the community comes together and utilizes individuals’ skills to help them survive as a whole. The characters have depth and you easily become embroiled in their everyday life, but I am still a bit confused as to why Alison still does not like or trust Riley, even though he has proved himself honest and reliable many times over. It will be interesting to see how this develops in the next book. The narrator, J. Scott Bennett, did a great job of bringing the story to life. The different characters were easily distinguishable, and his pace fit just right. I will look forward to listening to the next book in the series.

An exciting and interesting second book

I love this series in audiobook. After a solar flare knocks out power in parts of America, Allison and her husband James open up their farm to take if family and friends and to build up a community. There are cold-hearted killers on the loose who are hungry and looking to steal.
The narration was perfect; the story was exciting and interesting with the author teaching about herbs and tinctures to improve health. Allison brought in neighbours who had skills to share, and they taught the children to add normalcy to the long days of manual labour for all.
I was disappointed in Allison's ambivalence to Riley; he worked tirelessly to make sure she was protected and everyone stayed safe from harm. Maybe the next book will capture this relationship and bring new information to light.
