Publisher's Summary

Two men. Two life-altering decisions. One epic journey.

In this eighth installment in the best-selling Borrowed World series, Jim Powell is convinced that his presence in the valley is putting his friends and family in danger. Hoping to buy them some time, he increases the security at his home, then sets off on a trip to allow the situation in his community to cool off. As much as he hates the idea, he also intends to scout out a location to fall back to if his people get driven from their homes.

Frustrated by the constant tension and violence, his best friend, Lloyd, joins him. Though Jim initially welcomes the company, Lloyd spends his day writing folk ballads about his friend’s body count and bad decisions.

Both men struggle with how best to confront their changing world. Both are desperate for a solution that will give them peace. Jim ultimately wants control of his surroundings, but doesn’t want the responsibility. Lloyd wants to lay down his gun and return to the life of a performing musician. In his own way, each man will find that some truths are inescapable. While their collapsed world still allows them free will, there will be no peace, and there is no escape from the violence.

A brilliant addition to the story

I really loved this book!! Although I have read the whole series this book could stand by itself and catches you up nicely. As always, Kevin Pierce’s performance brings the characters to life. On point!

Not his best work.

This was a little slow compared to his other books but sets up his next book very well. I liked how he brought in new characters but again it was a little slow for me

Another great addition to the series.

The best book of the series so far. With new characters introduced and situations evolving, I'll be looking forward to the next book.

Not my favorite in the series

Loved the other books in the series but this one was a little slow and dragged on at times. Im still looking forward to the next one.
