Publisher's Summary

In the Borrowed World Series, America is brought to its knees by coordinated terror attacks against the infrastructure. After spending weeks walking across a violent and horrific landscape to reach his family, Jim Powell hoped they could weather this storm on their secluded Appalachian farm. They had prepared for this. They had armed for this. They could live without power and fuel. What happens, though, when the same qualities that drew Jim to his isolated valley begin to attract another armed group looking for a place to hide from the unrest of a starving nation?

Franklin Horton's Borrowed World Series has been a best seller in the categories of Post-Apocalyptic and Dystopian Science Fiction. He has been interviewed extensively for podcasts and for print media on the topic of preparedness. The series is noted for its realistic portrayal of how average Americans might be affected by societal collapse.

Story is getting long in the tooth

Franklin Horton's first books in a series have never disappointed me and always makes me want more. The first book in the series was great with an interesting plot though set in a typical context. Each successive book seems to have dulled the edge more and more. Still, it's a serviceable SHTF series.

If you haven't yet read the first book and enjoy this genre, go get it. If you've read the books prior to this, you can pass on this without missing anything. Narration was excellent and Kevin Pierce does a terrific job as he has in the previous volumes.

THIS WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!!!

Just as I suspected, and this always happens in end of the world situations...the people that are trying to survive become your enemy! JIm and his friends are doing there best to survive and protect each other...there is a lot of violence in this book...and our group was in grave danger! I was very proud of Randy, she has really came a long way, she is one tough lady and I can not wait to see where this series goes next!!!

Really enjoying the series.

The Borrowed World has been one of my favorites in the post apocalyptic survivor fiction. I am anxiously awaiting Book 5.
I usually buy the audiobook as well so I can listen while I'm doing chores or driving.
Kevin Pierce is an incredible narrator!
His voice really enhances the trading experience

Book Two....now you're hooked!

I intend this review to cover the entire Borrowed World series. Point of fact, I could not stop listening to them. I think Franklin Horton's work here is fantastic. Nicely paced, full of action, with well developed antagonists,to say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. I appreciate how Mr. Horton stays away from politics and religion (for the large part), and the motivation of the protagonist is universal enough that any reader can slip into his skin. Good job, I look forward to seeing the "Valley Tribe" fares through the winter! Write more, Mr. Horton! Quit your day job and write more!

Leaves you wanting the next book

There are a lot of great authors out there but Franklin is a cut above. Flows well and leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat.

Excellent story and great narration.

Really enjoyed the fourth installment in the Borrowed World Series. Mr. Horton continued to develop the characters and introduces new situations that continue to keep me wanting more. His ability to give the reader an emotional attachment to the characters really makes these books stand out. Can't wait for the next one!

Couldn't turn it off...

Another fantastic story.. gripping, worried, happy, crying.... knowing the characters now, the story has you running through all the emotions of life and you feel the pain and elation during this chapter. Kevin Pearce is a master of his trade and compliments these books magnificently.
