Publisher's Summary

Charlie and her two companions must find a way out of the big city, or die trying.

Charlie is good at her work. As a hard-charging drug rep with the brains and talent to make it to the top, she has the world at her feet. Then, the lights went out, and everything changed. 

An EMP decimates the United States, leaving the country in the dark. With modern technology suddenly and permanently turned off, society's dark side quickly takes over. Caught on the road, she teams up with two new companions and they fight their way towards safety and freedom. Criminals, gangs, and worse stand between them and the safety of a friend's farm.

The 'Going Home' Series Goes To Town

The "Going Home" series (the precursor to this series) puts you there, immersed in an apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic situation, complete with monsters in healthy human bodies. This "Charlie's" series is set within the same situation, except the story begins in the city, not the country, with completely different characters. And... we learn early who caused the trouble.
Narrator Duke Fontaine was transparent (that's good) as he read "Going Home." In this series he's not as good: Lots of awkward micro-pauses in sentences, which occasionally distract. More distracting is Fontaine's male voice. You see, Charlie is telling the story, and she's a young woman.
Overall, however, I find this stuff compelling, so I keep listening and listening.

Disappointing

It says nowhere on the description that this is a prequel. Absolute garbage. The rest of the books are good but this left me wanting my money back.

Not long enough

So I’ve read all the Going Home series and when I seen this I got excited. It’s just like the others and really gets you into the story. The issue I have is it’s not long enough for what you pay for. Most books are 9-11hrs long where this is around 5 so you don’t get a lot for the first book. Hopefully the rest of this series is longer. If you like the Going Home series you’ll like this as well.

It's just getting started

I think this book was mostly a set up for the next ones, but it seems like it's going to be yet again another pretty good story from A. American.

Going Home

I love the Going Home series and this is a great spinoff of that series. The book went by very quickly and now I am ready and waiting for the next book.

If you haven’t read/listened to Going Home, do yourself a favor and get them! The first 10 were excellent, can’t wait for 11!

More Please!!!

I was saddened when the "Home" series ended but it looks like A. American is back (or at least contributing) with another look at the events that started his previous series. Duke Fontaine is an excellent narrator and brings A. American's books to life. Disappointed this was only five hours but with the preview for the next novel included at the end, only guaranteed I will spend more $$$ on this series.
