Publisher's Summary

It's been around nine long months since the United States spiraled into chaos due to a cascading systems failure. The die-off everyone predicted has begun and after a hard winter nearly every other house sits empty with the owners dead or unaccounted for. Lately the power has flickered on and off a few times, raising hopes that power restoration is coming soon.

But how do you put the genie back in the bottle? Violence is everywhere. Disease is rampant. Hundreds of thousands are dead. Insurance can never pay for the damage and loss that has occurred. The economy will take years to restore, if it can be restored at all.

From the recesses of a fractured government comes a plan to restore order and rescue what remains of the population. The first step comes with restoring power. But what if having access to electricity came at such a price that many - like Jim Powell, his friends, and his neighbors - would rather face a future in the dark.

Realistic and Captivating

I have been an avid reader of all of Franklin’s books since the first in this series. Not only does this whole series seem more plausible and realistic than other books in this genre but the story also grips you to the point of not wanting to turn it off.
I’ve read all of his books to date and hope to eventually get signed copies of all his work! Kevin Pierce you are the man! Best narrator ever by a long shot!

great addition

this was a great addition to the series. I'm eager to see where the author takes this one next. (Spoiler alert) however I hate to see good characters leave the story.

Liked Book 6, didn't love it

This book was good, but it seemed too clinical. It was kind of a step by step directions how to kick butt and take names later. I will still wait with excitement for book 7. And there's plenty of action, heartwarming scenes, too; but this one's not my favorite in the series.

5 Star all around

Franklin Horton has done it again! This book will not disappoint. The only negative for me personally was the loss of one of my favorite Tribe members RIP
Kevin Pierce... ohh that voice, LOVE IT!

Never let's you down

The series is spectacular. Lots of twists, turns, and descriptive details. Horton does a great job in his work. Kevin Pierce is absolutely perfect for narration of any kind, especially of a series like this. Pierce could read ingredients off the back of cleaning supplies and could still manage to make it enthralling. Love the work guys, keep it up!

Deeper look into the big picture

I have loved this series from the start and this book did not disappoint! I enjoyed the usual action, suspense; and well thought-out and well written plot I’ve come to expect from Franklin Horton, as well as getting a better understanding of the big picture of what is going on in the nation. Jim, Gary, and Randy continue to do everything in their power to protect their families and friends. However, those in the valley are facing two bad options and must select the one they can live with, figuratively and hopefully, literally. With danger knocking on their door, not everyone can make it through alive.

Kevin Pierce is an additional force pulling us into the story. His voice is just so realistic, with emotions behind his words, the inflections he uses and the pacing. He is able to lull me into a relaxed state, put me on the seat of my chair in suspense or burst out laughing along with him. I highly recommend both this book and the series from Mr. Horton, as well as the narrator, Mr. Pierce.

Great follow up

I just love this series of books. I listened to this over a month ago now so am reviewing a little blindly as it were but the story just continues on from the original book. Can't wait for the next one. Not my usual genre, but I got in to this after listening to One Second After by William R Forstchen. Would like to hear a good UK equivalent.

Narration as always is good from Kevin Pierce - really makes me feel all the characters.

Never cried before.

In any book I’ve ever read or listened to, I’ve never cried before. I did in this. It’s so well written yet again and narrated perfectly, I couldn’t help myself.
