Publisher's Summary

The quest is no longer just to survive, it's to escape. 

The snow is melting, and the crabs are growing more violent. 

At the base of a blocked-off bridge spanning the South River, Dominic and his friends plan a daunting journey to flee Warren County and the monsters that came when the snow fell. 

But the crabs aren't the only danger they face. 

There are other forces at work, forces with a secret as inhuman and terrifying as the crabs themselves. 

And these forces are determined to never let the group leave.

Could have been better

The story was “ok” but the narration was so monotone. The worst part was the editing & splicing often over lapped or repeated-not once or twice but several times all throughout the production. Story concept was good but lacked depth of characters. Seems like an inexperienced writer or he was in a rush to finish the work. I had high hopes because the first in the series “They came with the snow” had so much potential.

EDITING!!!!

This could have been an excellent book however there was absolutely no attempt made at editing or even rereading the narrators work. Great voice but mispronounced words, and constant repetition of sentences. I was given the impression that the narrator just assumed that the editor, whoever that wasn’t, would delete the repeated sentence. The author has some great story ideas but has a lot of growing to do on putting a book together. Painfully disappointing.

Please save your time

To start with the Narrator drags the story along, doesn't even attempt character voices, and you can hear alot of ambient noise in the background. Perhaps I missed the plot but this "zombie" style book has Breen done quite a bit. The characters are one dimensional and even while supposedly emotional don't seen real. This is probably the least put together story regarding a world ending scenario and people supposedly sticking together.

Fantastic novel full of intrigue!

The author has written another superb novel! The characters are superb! The narration is great if you don't count the repeat of several sentences!

Horrible narrator and sound editing

I gave up an hour in. The story seemed promising, but is ruined by the lazy performance and terrible recording. The narrator didn’t even try, and the recording/editing staff are either stoned or just didn’t give a sh*t. I gave the story 2 stars because Audible requires a “Story” rating, but I honestly have no clue how this turns out and honestly don’t care to try the print version. The fact that Coleman approved this representation of his story is enough to make it a pass for me on all formats.
