Imagine if there is no more oil. This is the premise of the book. Thanks to Lou Cadle and the loads of research she obviously did for this tale, I'm thinking maybe doing some prepping is in order. So much of our life requires oil.
I can't say to much as I never do spoilers. But my emotions were all over the place. Fear, laughter, anger and I bawled like a baby. To me, the sign of a great storyteller.
If you have never read any of her work, WHY NOT? Grab this and begin. You won't regret it.
Last note, this is a cliffhanger. There will be more books. But, I don't mind it.
I'd love to tell you that it was action packed from start to finish, but that would be a lie. There were a LOT of filler scenes in between the action, however these scenes were somehow as captivating as the rest! The characters discuss plans of action and talk about how they think the world outside of their street is reacting.
Assuming you read the synopsis, I'll fill in the gaps with questions that I had:
1. Do the characters venture out into the world? No, for the most part, these characters stay on their properties and band together with the few families on their shared street. There are a few early excursions into town just so we get a glimpse of the situation.
2. Is there a cheesy romance? No! I was really excited that this book focused on the reactions and preparedness that some people had for such an extreme situation. There isn't any romance outside of the married couples, however the possibility for one does seem like it could exist for one of the following books in this series.
3. Does it feel realistic? Absolutely! I love that the author used an event that could realistically happen. Not that reading about zombies and other apocalyptic aliens and monsters isn't highly entertaining. There's just something scary about reading this and wondering if I am even remotely prepared for a similar event.
Overall this is an incredible novel! It doesn't end on a major cliffhanger, which is great because I'm already overly eager to read the next book in the series!!
The story centers around a couple of families in a slightly remote location in Arizona after oil quits flowing. One family is a prepping family; another family practices is a more back to earlier times of self sufficiency living. Of course, the challenges will come from people in more urban areas running out of food androtten people that resort to lawlessness.
