Publisher's Summary

Deception and collusion lead to disaster. 

As the nation slowly crumbles around her, Sierra Forester returns home for a wedding - and finds herself in the center of an FBI investigation. She discovers her university friends are not who she thought they were…and they’ve left her in a perilous predicament. 

A quiet, reclusive stranger has moved to the tiny Southeast Alaskan island she calls home. Can she trust him? Or anyone? 

Meanwhile, Russia and China have launched hybrid warfare against the United States. A sleepy administration is slow to respond. Will they wake up in time to save the country? Or will the nation collapse into the waiting jaws of the Russian bear and the Chinese dragon?

One of the best books with a wonderful Christian

A wonderful Christian Foundation, thank you Ms.Grey you have done it again with a strikingly accurate outlook for or soon to be even more attacked beliefs. To all my fellow Christian brothers and sisters, STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH, never take the mark, and never deny our savior.

An apocalypse through a Christian perspective.

The MC is irritating as a self absorbed college /student. She moves in with a Christian hermit to due to her affairs with a Chinese student and Russian guy who were involved in the Chinese and Russian invasion of America, unbeknownst to her. She’s not a likable character. The story also spends chapters on the thoughts of the Russian and Chinese generals perspective on the battle. Takes place in Alaska.

The female protagonist again is annoying

The female protagonist Sierra is amazingly annoying. The story itself is good. But the fact that this girls sexual escapades have caused the whole community problems is a real issue. The fact that the issue isn’t addressed is even more annoying.

My interest is peeked

I think I’m more upset that this book spent so much time laying the foundation of the storyline that there was no real story. It was over in a blink… I’m getting the second book in the series cuz I hate leaving things unfinished. But I’m a little ticked about it.
