It’s the end of the world, but not as we know it. A woman wakes up in a motel on the outskirts of a remote Oregon city with no memory of who she is, a gun at her bedside, and a state trooper uniform. As she explores the world outside the motel it seems that civilization has come to an abrupt end, and whatever caused it is still out there, looking for the survivors.
That’s bad. But it might also be the most normal thing that happens to her all week.

My Review ~ ★★★★★ ~ 5 Stars
I really like this audiobook. It’s a different take on the apocalypse and zombies or moaners, which was neat but the narration took it over the top to great! I like the way the story started with Felice having amnesia. It seemed everyone had it. It goes through her thought process of who, what, and where she is. She’s a police officer so she gets into her patrol car and gets to a place named Fort Rock where she finds a kid beside the road who also has amnesia and determines that Mikey is a good name for him. She takes him with her and they begin their trek..
She’s packing a gun and a Gideon. Over the radio she picks up a signal from somewhere, from someone known only by the name Uri so her aim is to get there safely with Mikey in tow. Wherever ‘there’ is. Her and Mikey take off for Haven and it becomes a perilous, but in a way, an exciting journey. Finally, she meets up with Agent Groves along with some other fun characters who are able to explain a few things to her about what’s happening. I love the quips throughout the story. It adds a little lightheartedness to the seriousness of their situation along with some great twists.
Overall, I love the spin on the apocalypse and the story is hard to stop listening to. There is something very unique about it. Halfway through I had to force myself to turn it off last night and pick back up in the morning. Overall, I would definitely recommend this one. It has a lot of appeal. This segues me to the narration.
Barbara Benjamin-Creel does a fantastic job narrating this audiobook. I enjoyed a different setting for her this time as it shows her versatility as a skilled voice actor. I seriously loved her in this role. Couple that with her smooth voice and perfect inflections and boom, this a great listen. Nice work from both author and narrator.
