Mark Twain wrote: Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward, it is not a compliment to say it is brave; it is merely a loose misapplication of the word.

Average Rating: 3.0
From breakout author Chris Pike comes the thrilling conclusion about one father's quest to persevere against all odds to save his daughter. In Unexpected World, you experienced the fall of modern society. Now it's time for the hardened survivors to face the perils of an uncertain world.
Dillon Stockdale is a broken man, crippled by agonizing grief over the realization his daughter perished in the wilderness. Dillon, together with Holly Hudson and his faithful dog, reluctantly begin the dangerous journey back to Holly's sprawling ranch. During the harrowing trip, they face murderous outlaws and violent weather, but they learn something invaluable that will change the course of many lives. Will a bold plan and new alliances result in Dillon's salvation, or does the journey end here? Find out who lives and who dies in this riveting conclusion to the survivors of an unexpected and uncertain world.
Although this story sets up future books in this series, this storyline is fully concluded in this book. There are so many unlikely coincidences in this story that it requires a bit of suspension of disbelief, as does the anthropomorphism. Beyond that, it's fairly typical post-apocalyptic fiction with compelling characters which Kevin Pierce performs with his customary excellence.
