Summary

With people fleeing the valley in droves and Estes no longer the safe haven it had once been, Neil Martin must make some hard choices. His group has dwindled to 70 homeless refugees who have very little left to survive on. They desperately need to find a place to call home before their many enemies realize how defenseless they truly are.

Instead of risking everything on a blind thrust across the Rockies to the Pacific, Neil sends out three picked teams to not only find a safe passage through the mountains but to also find a community that will take them in. Captain Grey is the obvious choice to lead one team, but is Sadie really the person to take charge of another?

She is a capable leader, a survivor, and a veteran of dozens of battles, but can she control the schizophrenic eight-year-old who won't leave her side even when the blood starts to run and the voices scream in her head?

And what happens when their mission is balanced on the knife's edge with disaster on either side and Jillybean a second from going nuclear. Will Sadie be able to make the hardest of sacrifices for the sake of her family? Or will she let love get in the way?

Gripping and emotional

I don't feel I can say much without revealing things you don't want to know yet. So I'll simply say this,
Sacrifice is an incredible journey with an emotional ending. It's a real roller coaster and my emotions were as volatile as the story. I'd say this is the best of the series because it's so hard hitting. Peter Meredith holds no punches and delivers a story that stays with you. I cannot recommend this book, and in fact the series, highly enough.

What a great ending to a great series!

Just beautiful writing amidst death and gore. The ending was the best I've read in a long time. Thank you, Peter for the gift of this series. There are a lot of us who are grateful to have had the chance to follow Jillybean through the apocolypse.

EPIC TO THE LAST WORD!!

Since the first word of page 1 book 1 you are captivated and drawn into this apocalyptic landscapes in all it's cracked and dismal glory; lovingly brought into a rich family of misfits who love and protect each other with the grace, unwavering love and fierce brutality that any mother gives for her children. The girl that is Jillybean becomes any child left alone, scared and courageous in the undiscriminating world of depravity, hate, fear and destruction that is the Apocalypse. Captain Gray Sir, Mr. Neil , Sadie, Deanna, Emily and even Ipes just to name a few become a loved part of your family as you move through their rollercoaster journey. Each win, close call, daring escape, brilliant explosions, and painful loss is felt as if it was your own; so when they finally find their tattered happy ending you can't help but feel in your heart and through your tears as they cascade down your cheeks.

Sad to see this series go

After 10 books, this series and the characters have become part of my everyday life. Assuming based on the ending that this is the last book in the series, I'm already missing them. While trying not to spoil anything, I will say just this, some deaths are harder and sadder to take than others, and that's the only reason I didn't give this one a full five stars. Basil Sands does another masterful job of narration, and Meredith weaves another action packed, intelligent, funny, and sorrowful tale for Neil and group. Unfortunately, this tale is much more heart-wrenching than I normally like, but probably what you'd expect in a real life apocalyptic world. I highly recommend the series, but be prepared if you prefer happy endings, you might find this one not as much to your liking.

Could. Not. Stop. Listening.

This book gutted me. I cried. I never cry when listening to an audiobook. I cried over and over. I started taking breaks from work so I could listen to it. Terrified of the ending but hopelessly drawn to find out what happened next!!!!

Thank you for bringing Jillybean into my world. I think everyone needs a bit of her in their lives.

Basil Sands was mercilessly perfect in his narration of this book. I finished it two days ago and I am still grieving for the losses, and grieving over the end of a great story.

I don't want it to end.

I absolutely loved this series. I am so bummed that it's done I wish there was more I cannot get enough of Jillybean the whole thing. I want to see where it goes now that they've made it someplace better is it going to last. It doesn't seem like it's over, is it? What next? it's like everyone was a part of my life for so long now I'm not sure what I'm going to do I absolutely loved loved loved this series and I want more

This series will captivate you.

I was so happy and sad at the ending of the series. You feel like you’re part of this little group going through their trials of joy and anguish and all the sacrifices. The stories were excellent and the narration by Basil Sands just drew you in with every plot. You will absolutely enjoy listening to this series.
