Publisher's Summary

Hidden away from the world by his famous father, Quinn Kelly strives to find meaning in his life while struggling with a deformity that has kept him from leaving the only home he has ever known. On the eve of his departure a sudden and deadly virus sweeps across the nation, killing nearly all it touches. Within days Quinn is left to fend for himself in an empty world.

But there is something still very much alive beyond the walls of his sanctuary, its malicious intent clear all too soon. Joining forces with a young single mother and her blind son, Quinn must cross a dangerous and silent America in the search for refuge and a truth that may shatter his sanity and strip him of the last things he holds dear.

Attack On Titan meets modern America

Good overall. Very rushed after Chapter 20. Excellent narration. Cool plot. Quinn really lacked depth.

Another great story from Joe Hart!

I love this genre, but find that often it's the same story over and over. This book has a few twists and turns I hadn't yet read. The narration was great as well, although I couldn't stop thinking about how he sounded similar to Bob from Bob's Burgers. Definitely would recommend giving this one a chance.

Listened twice!

Yes it was good. Worth the credits and more. Audible should not demand writing something. This is irritating. Two words
