He's determined to help the resistance against the Strangers, the mysterious force that stalks them at every turn.

While the world building is beautifully done by the author, as before, my favorite was the romance and characters. Simon was once a lethal henchman for a powerful crime boss, and was on the run from him when he entered the cave in 2010. He hated himself, and what he had become, and the drugs he used to just get by. Now is his chance to reinvent himself-if he can get past how horrible of a man he was in the past. Sage is a super smart, tech savvy, beautiful young woman who is working to get an underground internet installed in the area, along with her best friend, Theo, and his brother, Lou. It has to be underground because of the Strangers- people that are immortal and have a crystal embedded in their upper chests. They have power, nice cars that actually run, and live in huge homes away from Envy. Theo and his brother Lou also have an extremely interesting back story. To make things even more interesting, Theo is in love with Sage, and not about to let some new guy(Simon)steal her away from him. Not that Sage is his either.
The main character in the previous installment, survived with the gift of healing. Simon has his own new ability, one that he’s not telling anyone about-so I am not telling it either-except to say, it’s one of the best super powers ever! It’s very much needed for this group that are working underground against the Strangers. It’s good versus evil in this new world. And I haven’t even mentioned the zombies!
If you haven’t discovered Colleen Gleason’s work yet, you should really check her books out. I have enjoyed every book I have read by her. They are filled with action,life and death moments, and more importantly, romance. Thankfully, she has quite a large body of work so I will definitely be continuing on with more of her work in the future. I highly recommend this series to adult paranormal romance fans, and even urban fantasy readers will find something to like about this series. Fantastic read!
Simon and Sage must go to Sage's homeplace to find information left behind by Remington Truth. The catch, Falling Creek is a settlement bent on repopulating the devastated world by strict breeding policies. Sage must be married to return and avoid being thrust upon some man with who-knows-how-many other wives. During their stay, Simon reveals that he gained a power in the Sedona caves as well. Sage also discovers his past when a Stranger recognizes him from the past.
Narration: Sebastian Fields does wonders with accents and dialects. He employs a reading narration utilizing accents instead of an acting narration with different voices.
If you're looking for a story with action, fun awkwardness, a bit of angst and love, this is the book for you!
I thought this would be your typical book (see cover) but i was so surprised. It is totally different from any series I have read (and I like Special Ops, paranormal, mysteries, historical, contemporary etc. (I read about 6-7 books a week of all types). LOVED this new author Joss Ware and am looking forward to more of her books, Amazing plot and great characters too.
I really like what Ware has done with the new world, after the Change. This is a cross between Jericho and the Walking Dead. With a hot romance thrown in. What's not to love??
