It was nice to listen to Kevin again, and this premise interested me a lot due to the science of it. I must admit there was a lot to take in at f..Show More »irst. But as each first chapter introduced us to the characters and to what was coming, I got more and more sucked into the story.
Preppers do have the mentality attatched to them of being a bit on the wacky side, but I think in all honesty having some sort of stock about you really isn't. Especially with the way the world seems to be heading. Maddison was a fab Mom and did everything she could to help calm her daughter down and protect her from even her own thoughts at first.
Alex totally different gal, you think she's this quiet kid who just wants to do what kids do, but she rescues her mom from a mugger with a golf club! There were some really tough moments in this story. And the more we got to know Maddy and Alex, and her husband Colton. The more we were routing for them being re-united.
I think my only grip is that it's so short. I know there's a sequel, but I feel it's actually really part of this story. It stopped at a good place after they met up, but the only thing that led me to want more was the bonus chapter/teaser.
Still excellent listen, Kevin has a deep, but soothing tone I really like. He puts great twists with his male and female characters and I'm happy to listen to anything he narrates because of that. Next one please :)
