Mankind has suffered five mass extinction events, the sixth will be our final. Days away from a catastrophic event that will end the world, five strangers find themselves stranded in the suicide capital of America dealing with the difficulties, regrets and choices in their lives while trying to survive. Among the group is a talented performer, a petty thief, a gambler, a lady of the night and a hard working cab driver. With the clock ticking down, and a sliver of hope found in a text message, their only hope is to get out of the city and embark on a dangerous journey across the country together. Final Impact is a story of survival, friendship and redemption in the face of impending doom.
This is mainly a character-driven story. As with most apocalyptic fiction, it's highly speculative. However, it does not focus on doom as so many such stories do. It does present many challenges and much action to keep the reader riveted.
Kevin Pierce delivers his customary outstanding performance. Pacing and voicing are spot on.
