Summary

Sent to a fallout shelter to survive a nuclear catastrophe, a group of teenagers are the last hope for humanity. Can they survive living with one another first?

Katrina knew this day would come. She had been preparing for it all her life. The end of the world was here, and it looked nothing like she had imagined.

Now she was trapped in an underground fallout shelter with a group of teenagers who had been selected as the last hope for humanity. The idea of surviving the nuclear apocalypse alone blurs as she makes friends, and finds love, while buried beneath the earth.

Cross between maze runner and divergent

Absolutely brilliant. Easy to listen to - great narrator, sometimes I find their voices annoying but this one is perfect. The story is gripping from the start and really enjoyable. Gets you thinking about society and I can’t wait to listen to the next one!

Absolutely loved this dystopian beginning

I received a free audio copy of this book directly from the author for an honest review. This book is what I would have loved as a teenager and still love now. This lord of the flies almost twist on a dystopian world with hints of big brother is so well done! I loved how different clicks formed within the underground bunker and the relationships formed for the main character Katrina. Katrina is a very complex character a highly intelligent for her age teenager who stands her ground and for the most part keeps her cool. The story itself is very intriguing and each day is nanny greets them in the big brother house ahem bunker 😂 followed by the daily tasks and issues across two weeks. The book ends rather abruptly and just makes you really want the next in the series!

Didn’t want to stop listening!

This is a fantastic dystopian, with characters who you will love and some you will hate! I was gripped! Listened all in one sitting. Can’t wait to read book 2 to find out when happens next.

Really enjoyed this YA post-apoc read!

My first time reading Heather Carson and she grabbed me with the start of a great series. The story line is interesting and entertaining enough to make me want to continue to read. Stacy Glemboski did a excellent job narrating. I received a free audiobook copy in exchange for my honest review.

A Great New Idea for a Dystopian World!!

This was a great take on a dystopian world that I haven't read anywhere. I love dystopian stories that have humanity as the biggest story line and not a bunch of zombies and monsters. This book had a very human element to it and I could actually see something like this happening in our future. The only very small thing that I didn't like was that the narrator was very robotic sounding the entire time and not just when necessary for Nannie's part. I can't wait to see what happens in book 2!!

Great start!

I absolutely loved listening to this book. The narrator Stacey G. Does a fabulous job portraying Katrina and several of the other characters in the book. The story is well written and engaging post apocalyptic world. I thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns and the mob mentality that was well written in this book. If you’re a fan of the Maze Runner, then I suggest you pic this book up. It may just be right up your alley.

We have to dig!

Let me start by first saying that I usually don't get into post-apocalyptic dystopian disasters, let alone one filled with teenage angst. Carson is a local author and I wanted to give it a whirl. The story has a great foundation. There is heart, fear, anxiety, and dread all rolled into these words. I went for a heck of a roller coaster ride from the start. In the beginning, we are immediately thrust into a scenario full of panic and confusion. Following our hero as she tries to sort out this new world she's found herself in, we are taken on a journey that feels all to familiar to anyone who's partaken in reading a dystopian book or watching a film: Nuclear Destruction. The rest of the book is wrought with twists and turns equal to those found within the underground bunker. While battling with traditional teenage angst, relationships, crushes and bullying, we are also thrust into the "grown up" problems faced with any survival shelter. Struggles for power, alliances and distrust are seeded throughout. NARRATION: The narrator did a phenomenal job! Stacey Glemboski really captured the mood of the entire gang. Her pacing and understanding of various dialogues helped push the story along. Story: I think the story is a great start. It appears to be the first of many, which usually is the least developed. This happens with all stories as the full idea isn't realized at this point. That's not to say I'm not completely hooked and ready to download book 2 as soon as I can! I highly recommend this book to anyone with teenage readers, or if you like YA books in general. Forewarning that there is hinting of a negative sexual encounter, which is cleverly prefaced by the author/narrator prior to the chapter beginning. A+ for that.
