Publisher's Summary

The chaos that recently gripped America has been replaced with an era of prosperity and joy. Markets are flourishing, people are happy, and the country is in recovery. Although much was lost in the turmoil of the previous year, the country was feeling as if they’d dodged a bullet.

Dave Cavanaugh, the silver haired outdoorsman, mountain hiker, and billionaire dubbed the “Richard Branson of the Rockies,” presses ahead with his audacious plan to build walled, gated communities across the country to preserve art, science, medicine, and religion. These Arks of America are planned to be islands of hope during times of strife, chaos, and uncertainty.  

An early investor in the program, Liz Pendleton, the beautiful auburn haired actress from Kentucky, is back at work making movies. Both she and Dave are concerned for Vince Cavanaugh, the billionaire’s nephew, a divorced, gruff ex-Special Forces soldier who’s experiencing a deep personal calamity, leaving him a shell of his former self.  

Without Vince the entire Arks of America program could fail. 

In the prosperity of the post-chaotic America, the group who so recently survived together is spread across the country when the unthinkable happens again. 

Are they prepared to support the people who need them?
Can the government right one more crisis?
Can Vince summon the strength to be the hero they need?

Waiting for book 3

The story was fluid and easy to listen to. This book is a fast action packed space opera with romantic moments.

Thank goodness

Ok, first possible spoiler thank you so much for not killing off certain characters as one in particular is my favorite and my anger at one point almost caused me to stop reading(being vague so as not to drop too much of a spoiler) . Next it's so great to read something with some political common sense(seems improbable to have those 2 notions in one phrase) on the plausible results of some ideals, as well as some solid preparedness ideas. The writing is good, story is great, and characters make you believe in heroes/heroines again. The narration is great as well. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because I'm wary of giving unfinished series 5 stars so authors don't get lazy, I would have given a 4.7 at least though with more precise measurements.

Meh

There are some good ideas in this book.

The dialog is forced. The narration is monotone. I will not listen to the third book if it is ever published.

Wayne Booth said, "Show, don't tell." Please don't tell me the character was angry. Show me they are angry.

Needs Emotion

It would have been an easier listen if there had been more character development and the author had given the characters some emotion, so you could more easily engage in the storyline. It was difficult to keep track of who these people were when there was little to no background provided and their names would pop up without context. Rather than telling a story of what people were doing, it would have been great to experience the emotions of the characters and actually enter into the plot. I loved the concept of these "Arks" but felt like I was on the outside looking in, rather than being pulled into the story. I'm hoping Book 3 will bring a deeper understanding of the characters.

Bravo

I really enjoyed the story. I couldn't stop listening I am anxiously waiting for the next in the series as well as any additional works by the author. The narration was excellent.
