Publisher's Summary

Life in Abney, Texas, is predictable and safe - until the night a massive solar flare wipes out all modern technology.

Shelby Sparks, novelist and single mom, had one goal: to provide for her diabetic son. In the wake of this global disaster, her mission hasn't changed. Only now, medication is a priceless commodity and the future resembles an apocalyptic nightmare.

Max Berkman and Shelby were once sweethearts, but he lost his chance at claiming her love years ago. When the abrupt loss of power ushers him into a leadership role, he rises to the occasion. But his highest priority - to keep Shelby and her son safe - could prove to be the biggest challenge of all.

As the brilliant northern lights give way to deep shadows, Max and Shelby's faith will be tested like never before. Only one rule remains: Find a way to survive.

Reader is Horrid

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

No, while the story is engaging, the performance is almost unbearable. It sounds like a machine is reading it in some places.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Shelby is well developed. The reader tries to give her an accent that the writer did not write into the story effectively making her sound much less intelligent. She leaves the "G" off of most -ing endings even though the writer did not write it this way (I checked the sample download of the Kindle version).

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rebecca Mitchell?

Anyone else!

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

It was very engaging and hard to pause once I got used to the awful narration.

Narrator is terrible

I'm only about half way through the Audible book. The narrator is just terrible. She has no personality. All the characters sound the same. Unusual pauses.

I can't wait to read the next book

Overall Rating: 4.5 stars
Story Rating: 4.5 stars
Narrator-Rebecca Mitchell: 4 stars

What I liked:

• The author caught my attention right from the beginning and drew me into the story with the opening scene with the Aurora Borealis in Texas. I was engaged in this story from the beginning until the end.
• The writer's words painted clear pictures that helped me to visualize the scenes and the emotions of the characters. The author's writing style was concise vivid, and clear.
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done, easy to visualize, and to feel. I felt like I was a part of the scenes with Shelby, Carter, and Max.
• There were many twists and turns to this plot, which kept my interest. This book was not predictable.
• The pacing of the story was neither too slow nor too fast.
• There was a smooth, coherent flow to this book.
• This story had a satisfying ending and was a great starting place for the next book in the Remnant Series.
• This was a clean read and I appreciated that.
• This was a Christian apocalyptic novel. Religion was a part of the characters' daily lives. No religious lectures.
• The narrator had a pleasant voice.

I am looking forward to reading more of the Remnant Series and learning how Shelby, Carter, and Max deal with the situations life deals them.
