The survivors have come to settle in the mountains of Wyoming, fighting day in and day out to establish a home for themselves in a near-empty world. Things are good at first; scavenging is a workable, short-term solution that seems to be providing all they need. But they know that it’s only a matter of time before the food runs out. They need to scramble to find a sustainable solution before the clock stops, and for a little handful of people up in the mountains, the odds don’t seem very favorable.

What a great story this is, one that you can't put down or in our case unplug, i was looking to excuses to get away and plug in.
Gibbs is by far one of the best characters iv ever meet listen to, funny, charming, crass someone id defenatly want on my team at the end of the world.
All the other characters were well written you felt a conection with every one. The story was great, funny, sad, scary and iv deffanetlly had some conversations with fellow listeners going over the bits we liked and what we think we would do if in the same situation can't wait for the next book.

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

For dinosaurs, it was a big rock. For humans: Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). When the Earth is hit by the greatest CME in recorded history (several times larger than the Carrington Event of 1859), the combined societies of the planet's most developed nations struggle to adapt to a life thrust back into the Dark Ages. In the United States, the military scrambles to speed the nation's recovery on multiple fronts including putting down riots, establishing relief camps, delivering medical aid, and bringing communication and travel back on line. Just as a real foothold is established in retaking the skies (utilizing existing commercial aircraft supplemented by military resources and ground control systems), a mysterious virus takes hold of the population, spreading globally over the very flight routes that the survivors fought so hard to rebuild.

As a young boy, Diogenes Alejandro Xenos, witnesses the murder of his mother and sister by a band of marauders. As "Dax" grows to adulthood, he channels his fear and hatred into a desire for revolution, swearing revenge on those in power as he upsets the status quo. His actions make him an outlaw, living on the fringes of society in a land turned upside down with corruption. He is wanted by men and women alike-but for very different reasons.

This is one of the first adult books I have ever read and it one that sticks in your head and your heart forever. the audible version is good, easy to listen to. brought back lots of old feelings and memories. this is one of the books I recommend for people to read now listen to. I'm a fan of most johnras and I really enjoy this story..

This was a hard book to get through. I love and rave about Christina Lauren and recommend their to books to friends that like sexy, strong female characters; one liners that make you laugh out loud and want to share; plot lines that you can watch unfold and enjoy the ride.
Dark wild nights just fell flat, I found the main character Lola; boring, sad and detached. I usually really enjoy Shayna Thibodeaux notation but I found she took lots of long pauses that made the book slow. Steve West did a great Aussie accent, he was sexy and I loved the character of Oliver, I think that side of things was fairly enjoyable. All I can say is I couldn't wait to finish it so it was over. I didn't feel any connection to the characters or story line.
I love these girls and their writing and love that through glimpses we can visit our old friends, but this book was disappointing. I really hope the next one is better..

If you loved the last two books then you wont be disappointed.. could not put this down I was plugged in for days, made me laugh, cry, cringe and loose my appetite, it even got a little steamy. I can't wait until season 4; I'm so tempted to read it but know ill miss the voices of the characters like missing an old friend. especially the villain we love to hate or hate to love Boriceo. you do have to listen to the first 2 book before consuming the third; but if this is you I am jealous because you get to indulge in a fantastic series and I'm stuck waiting for the next instalment.. happy listening (:

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I defiantly would but they need to listen to season 1 first.

What other book might you compare Yesterday's Gone: Season 2 to, and why?

not a book, but maybe a series, the walking dead would be close that cult like atmosphere zombie alien intruders. all that character development only to rip it away and leave you with a oow look on your face..

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

yes and love all the narrators. they changed some of the narrators in this book but I think it was for the better, as long as Boricio doesn't change he really brings it to life great job :)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes it was very addictive.

Any additional comments?

Boricio and Luka were the stars of this book well written and spoken, I laughed cryed and was shocked all through. I can't wait until the next instalment comes out, im tempted to read it but I really think the audio dose do it so much more justice.
