Publisher's Summary

A dire situation keeps getting worse....

When Matthew Riley’s father collapses with a possible heart attack, it drives home just how bad the situation in Galena, IL has become after an EMP knocked out power around the world. David needs medication and the group needs a doctor if everyone is going to survive in the long term. But hostile forces have their eyes on the River Rock Hotel, and keeping the family safe may be impossible. 

Things aren’t going back to normal....

Kathleen Riley knows it, even if her husband hasn’t admitted it yet. With new allies at their side, the Riley family has a chance to fortify their hotel and start rebuilding a life in the new world. But with Matthew rushing to make things seem normal again, they’re at risk of exposing themselves to hostile forces.

An old enemy returns....

Life is already difficult enough even before the family receives news that Samuel West is back in town. He’s brought friends, and he’s ready to fight to take control of the Red Rock Hotel and the remnants of Galena. The Rileys will do anything to keep their land, but after another tragedy strikes, they may not be able to win. After all, what is survival worth if everything you’re surviving for is never coming back?

Formulaic and predictable

This story is very formulaic. I could predict much of it well in advance. There aren't any real surprises. Although it certainly isn't without violence, there's less than in the previous books in this series. More time is spent on actual survival, something I appreciate in this genre. The characters are rather flat and insubstantial, although Matthew E. Berry performs them quite well. This is a fairly uninspired post-apocalyptic novel.

There world will go on even when it stops.

This series kept my attention all the way through the series. Each book ends and you can’t wait see what is in the next book.

great Book

I liked the book quite a bit, i just feel like the plot had quite a bit of holes. Seemed like there was a lack of interaction with other people that would be in the same situations, the book almlst made it feel as it the EMP also eliminated most of the population, for example when Kathleen and Allison were stuck in chicago, the book either failed to establish or describe the hundreds of thousands of people that would be roaming the streets also looking for help, the story made it seem like they were pretty lonely when in reality you’d have thousands upon thousands of people in the streets looking for answers.

Loved it

Amazing story. Writing this review after finishing all 3 in the series.
Grace is so good at writing real and flawed characters. Even her main ‘good guys’ do stupid stuff, make mistakes and just screw up from time to time. The thing is that’s how real people are. You will always learn from her stories too. Many survival lessons are to be learned here. Do yourself a favor and pick up this or any of her series, you will not regret it!
Mathew Berry is a great narrator.

We're all in this together!

The story begins with medical issues about David; heart attack. First things first, recon mission to a hospital for supplies. Niki, a nurse from Carpenter Country, looked over David. The second issue, they needed to find the well on the hotel property that Wyatt, also from Carpenter Country, said was there. Young Patton was having difficulties being a tender twelve-year-old and not knowing where he fits in. He wanted to help his grandfather but didn’t understand the seriousness of his medical condition. He wanted to go hunting but the grown-ups prevented him from using a gun. A difficult age. Their old enemy, Matt’s brother-in-law, Samuel West made insidious visits to the Hotel property. West’s obsessive desire for the hotel would come to a head, forcing Matt’s family, Jade, and Wyatt into a fight. The story closed any open questions very nicely. It is a good tale, nothing too dramatic or violent. A good story about people doing the best they can to survive and help others. There will always be love and hope at the River Rock Hotel.

This trilogy overwhelmed me !!!


Only a few can write like Grace Hamilton with such talent.
First: totally believable story.
Second: every character feels so real and have a soul of his own.
Third: to put all this creation on paper is very unique and hard to find.
And by choosing Matthew E. Berry for narration is the perfect choice to bring life to this whole package !

So good that
Before the end even i got
tearful.

This whole trilogy Absolutely
Recommended for all !!!
