A twist as ever there was going to be but a well done one. I thought it could have run on another chapter just to explore the relationship with his wife and daughter a little bit no, I enjoyed the series immensely.

It's been around nine long months since the United States spiraled into chaos due to a cascading systems failure. 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.

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.

Teenager Amanda Castle was like a lot of people, posting pictures of her everyday life to a variety of social media sites. Not everyone who viewed her pictures was there to share in her experiences. One was there to steal her profile pictures. A terrorist in Frankfurt was desperate to please his leadership. He planned the perfect attack, one in which vulnerable people would be invited through social media to participate in a flash mob. There, the unwitting participants, thinking they were taking part in a random act of kindness, would find themselves engaged in a random act of terror.

Personally I can’t put these down once they begin. Epic is the only way to describe the whole series. Don’t think this can’t happen, it can.

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?

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.

I hold Franklin Horton in the highest regard and have listened to his full collection. This next instalment is a fine support to the Borrowed World collection and I personally can not wait for the next instalment.
