5 stars, Society has ended, now what?

by Grace Hamilton

This is a well-contained novel, I haven't read book 1 in the series, yet I had no issues with knowing what was going on. The ending seemed to come too fast, but there was some conclusion, yet you know there's another book.

The Riley family is trying to keep themselves together since the EMP took down society as they knew it. Ruth and David, senior citizens; Matthew-their son with his family Kathleen, Allison, and Patton; Max, Kathleen's brother; Jade, a young woman who mistakenly thought David and Matthew were the enemy but is trying to fit in with the family.

The Riley's own a large hotel in rural Illinois. They are trying to hold off evil forces and fortify their boundaries to keep themselves safe. They find out that it won't do them any good to be paranoid about everyone left in the world, they are going to have to trust some people, or these city folk won't survive.

Much appreciation to #netgalley @gracehamilton for the complimentary copy of #eruptingdanger I was under no obligation to post a review.

I had a good time with this book. After listening to the first book in the series, I was pretty eager to see what would happen next to Austin, Savannah and the rest of the group. This is a series that needs to be read in order since it is a continuation of the same overall story arc with each book building on the previous installment. I thought that this was a very well done installment.

This book had a bit of a different feel. The shock of the EMP has passed and the group has made it to a place that should be safe so their focus has shifted to learning to live together and be self-sufficient. This is a big group and they don't necessarily blend together easily so just living together is going to take a lot of work. It was really quite interesting to hear the plans they were making on how to survive and sustain such a large group.

There was some excitement to keep things interesting as well. Most of the action occurred later in this book but I enjoyed the lead-up. It sometimes seems that this group just cannot catch a break. They have to try to figure out if the data they hold could make a difference and stop the group responsible for the EMP and they have to fight to stay safe. It seems like there is one challenge after another.

Maxwell Zener did a great job with this book. I think that he stayed really consistent with the character voices that he used in the two books in the series. This series has a really large cast of characters and I love how varied and unique each voice was. I thought that he added a lot of excitement and emotion into the reading.

I would recommend this book to fans of apocalypse stories. This was a very enjoyable addition to the series with a nice balance of action and emotional scenes. I look forward to reading more of this exciting series.

I received a review copy of this audiobook from the author/narrator via Audiobook Boom and have voluntarily left this review.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. If you follow my reviews, you may have noticed that I have been on a bit of an end of the world kick. Actually, I have been reading a lot of zombie apocalypse stories but I thought it was about time I mix things up a bit. This EMP story was a nice change and I really did enjoy myself.

Austin and his 14-year-old daughter, Savannah, live in an RV in a very rural area. Austin is a journalist who has a meeting with a contact while Savannah has plans to get some ice cream with her friends (at least, that's the story she gives her dad). When the EMP hits, things go south very quickly. Everything stops working and meeting back up with each other is beyond challenging. The world after the EMP is entirely different than it was before with people taking what they need from others without remorse.

This was a pretty exciting story. Austin and Savannah had separate journeys but they both had a lot of obstacles to overcome. I thought that getting to see things from two very different points of view helped me to really get a feel for what the world was like after the EMP hit. I was worried about these characters and hoped that they would make it to safety and find each other but I wasn't sure it was going to happen. It just seemed that the world was against them at times. This was a very well-paced story that was hard to set aside.

I liked the cast of characters in this book. Austin and his daughter are pretty down to earth characters that are easy to cheer on. There is a pretty large cast of supporting characters who I thought felt realistic. Some characters seemed very trustworthy while I wonder about the motivation of others. I liked the variety and I thought that the author did a good job of introducing them at a rate that allowed me to keep them straight in my mind.

This was my first experience listening to Maxwell Zener's narration. I have to admit that it took me a bit to get used to his reading, especially the parts from the female perspective. After I gave it some time, I found that I really liked his delivery of the story. I thought that he had a very pleasant voice which was easy to listen to for hours at a time. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to his work again in the future.

I would recommend this book to others. I found this to be a really exciting story that was very plausible. The characters were well developed and easy to like. This was the first time that I have read any of Grace Hamilton's work but I hope to read more in the future, including more of this series!

I REALLY wanted to love FREEZING POINT and I started off enjoying it, but there were a few things that threw the story off or me.

What I liked:
- I really enjoyed the concept of the book. The world going through an ice age type weather event could happen someday and it was easy to understand.
- There was a lot of action. There was a fight/danger at every turn.

What I didn't like:
- Nathan was way too trusting and naive. It seemed like every turn brought bad decisions on his part that put his family in more danger.
- I really despised the fact that practically every male the group came in contact with wanted to use the wife as a broodmare. This theme wasn't the only repetitive thing that happened in FREEZING POINT.
- A majority of the characters annoyed me in one way or another.

I most likely won't read more, but I didn't totally hate reading FREEZING POINT.
