It’s the end of the world. Who said you can’t fall in love?

Ren Dyer is at the pinnacle of her career. Newly appointed as head of the protection team for Home Secretary Andrea Fielding, she is a woman focused only on her job.

Andrea Fielding is a woman who is looking for love and finding it in all the wrong places. When the worst happens, and the world changes dramatically around them, will Andrea finally see what's been right in front of her all along?

On the road, together with a group of people that includes Andrea's ex, Dutch Foreign Minister Marja Stegenga, they must try to reach the safety of HQ at the other end of the country. 

For Ren Dyer, it is simple: keep her safe. For Andrea Fielding, it's anything but...

As protocols shift and rules go out the window, will Ren see there is more to life than work, and will Andrea finally find the love she is searching for?

A really great listen!

The more I read or listen to Claire Highton-Stevenson's work, the more impressed I become. Granted, I've only read three so far (and have several more in the queue) but every one has been completely unique. I was immediately intrigued with this thriller set in Britain about a worldwide apocalyptic event. It's a really interesting premise, the two female MCs are strong and admirable, and there are a host of other characters that really add to the story. And although the book primarily deals with the effects and survival of the event, there is also a lovely (and hot) romance at the heart of it. I also discovered a new narrator in Sarah Kempton. Wow. She has an absolutely delicious English accent and a deep repertoire of voices and dialects for the various characters - both male and female. She doesn't just have a great voice - she performs it beautifully as well. I'm completely impressed with her and am very hopeful she'll do the follow-up. Highton-Stevenson is quickly becoming a go-to author for me. Highly recommend!

Amazing

Amazing listening, adventurous, spicy, with plenty of action. Is well written and narrated, with smart, brave, gorgeous women. Is captivating, with a lot of unexpected events along the road, a roller coaster of twists and turns that will keep you wanting more. I love it and I definitely recommend it.

Definitely something different!

I have totally enjoyed this book! Great intrigue, adventure and wonderful lesbian sex! What more could any girl want?
As I listened to the beautiful voice of the narrator she described a world gone mad. And while I stay in the isolation of Covid-19, it made me realize that indeed, it could be so much worse. Home is where the heart is and we can make our own future, no matter the hardships.
In this book there is pain and loss but also hope. I can't wait for the next chapter in these characters lives.

Excellent book

I started to read this book while all over the US there were riots, during the pandemic and boy, was it not the right time, but I could hardly put this book down to go to sleep.
On one hand this comes out from such an amazing imagination on the other seeing what is happening in the world you can actually see it happening.
I already have the sequel and I am going to listen to it right now...

Grabbed me from the beginning!

What a story! I was totally hooked. It’s intense to imagine how one would survive if world as you know it is no more. I definitely would want REN and Andrea on my team. I loved the action, suspense and romance! The narration was superb! I definitely recommend.

Looking forward to part 2

Romance couched in an interesting and unusual tale made the occasional cliché and dodgy accent irrelevant. Loved it!
