Publisher's Summary

Wes and Raider have found themselves in the thick of things once again.

The KGR are hitting back relentlessly and, with Jessica’s group feared to be wiped out, the homestead falls into a quiet panic.

Paranoia is running rampant, and rightly so: there’s a mole who has been working for Spider in their midst.

After learning more about how the KGR operate, and where some of their caches are, Wes’s group goes on the offensive.

Everything changes with Jess’s revelation; they know they have to keep the pressure up to keep their freedom.

Even with Spider’s taunting and the knowledge that he has more moles planted within Wes’s inner circle, the group pushes on.

They are outmanned, outgunned, and running low on supplies.

It’s time for them to become even more unconventional.

Wes has to go back to his roots to come up with a plan to not only flush out the traitors, but to put a major hurt on their foes.

The group has underestimated the ruthless nature of the KGR and is thinking they are finally getting ahead of their enemies, when Emily starts to unravel.

There’s hope, but will that dark hope be enough for everyone to still survive?

Great Story - Ripoff Price

The good: This is a great story with excellent narration. The bad: A ripoff, at full price for half of a book at a time.

Author trying to get rich faster

This gut uses my credits to give me 3/4 of a book and ends with a cliff-hanger to get us to buy the next novelette. Bad practice and pretty lousy for Audible to let this happen.

Still Surviving Hope Is not Lost

For me, not as good as the others. I felt this was more of a transition than a continuation. This one delved into the lives of the the players a little more which is ok but I thought it was too much home life detail with little action. The action scenes were great as always just wanted a little more action and less talking.
Good story line and I will continue to follow. As always exceptional narration.

better not stop at book 4

there better be a book 5 in the works... you can't develop all of that and leave it where it stopped at the end of this book (4).

Sometimes Clinging To Hope Is The Only Option

One of the opening lines “When I Thought Things Were Getting Better… I Was Wrong” was so perfect for this book. It really sets the tone and keeps the tensions high. Dark Hope is the fourth book in the Still Surviving series and it throws the family into some more conflict (this time from the finale of book three).

Craven is able to tell a story that feels similar since this is a series but also takes a slightly different approach. Due to some news that Wes is given, perspectives are changing and there is more to live for. That, of course, doesn’t stop Wes and Raider from running into the fire without a suit. They are born leaders who don’t want to sit behind a desk and rule. They want to be out there fixing things. Making things better. And turning the hellscape of a world into a slightly less scary one.

The drama was still here. The KGR connections are in full swing and there is a lot of issue related to the group and their members. Every time they think they’re safe more bad things happen and Wes and company take things into their own hands to take care of the issues.

Overall, another good book in this series and a nice post-apocalyptic/homesteader book with the right amount of action and drama. A book that feels like home even if home is bit of a scary place sometimes.

Values Lostvin Today’s Society

This story had an underlying moral that many don’t abide by these days. A man dedicated to family, doing whatever it takes to provide, defend and grow. Instead of turning his head away from responsibility, Wes digs and cares for his grandparents, takes in other families and protects them from the corrupted world.
