Publisher's Summary

On a world brought to the brink of destruction, life now clings to the shattered remains of the planet's crust. These fragments are the Shells: fragile wastelands of desert and rock, protected from the cold of space by a water shield. In the struggle for survival, its people have depended on ancient technology, controlled by the omnipresent Network, to sustain the entire population. But the Network is breaking down, water is sparse, and a complete societal collapse is imminent. As the stakes become clear, the inhabitants of the Shells begin to turn on each other, and appear headed for all-out global war. Now the paths of several strangers will converge at the opportune moment. From a woman who seeks to protect her family as it's ripped apart to a prison warden hiding from his past, this unlikely group has little in common - but together, they may hold the key to saving humanity from its worst enemy: itself.

    Story
    "very unique story!"

    I haven't read a lot of science fiction books so I don't have a lot to compare this to, but I enjoyed listening to Rise very much. The world as we know it is completely blown apart... such an interesting concept and like nothing I've ever read. It makes the whole setting strange yet oddly familiar. The characters were authentic and relatable. I'm glad I stepped outside my normal genres and listened to this. The narrator did a good job with the different characters. I'm looking forward to the next book to find out what happens next!

    "Excellent FIRST Book - Amazing story"

    This is just the first book, the second is called Fall. It has not been published yet.

    The story telling is amazing a scribe is gathering the viewpoints of two individuals and trying to tell a narrative of events that will save society. The end of the story is a cliffhanger for the second book. The included appendix of the first interview with Quentin shows how crazy he really is.

    Please support this author, this is Brian Guthrie's first book, to bring out more amazing books that continue this story. You will enjoy the ride.

    "Made it a marathon listen!"

    this was so good. I couldn't stop listening. I found myself trying to predict every step of the way yet I was kept on my toes and still have no idea what's to come. I can't wait for chapter 2!
