They'll face an impossible choice in this new post-apocalyptic reality.

Winter has arrived on the Healys' Montana ranch. After discovering evidence of the coldhearted execution of his father, Greg Healy has become consumed with a burning desire for revenge. While he hides his true purpose of scoping out the murderous enemy behind fruitless hunting trips, further responsibility is thrust upon Greg's teenage son, Darryl. The ranch has become a hollow shell without the calm assurance and steady hand his father once provided, stability Darryl needs more than ever with the shocking secret he keeps.

The fractures in the family only grow as each side becomes entrenched behind resentments that threaten to shatter an increasingly uncertain future. But as the Healy family drifts farther apart, the enemy has been anything but idle. Eustace has amassed a new and lethal force with a single goal: Take the Healys' ranch by any means necessary, and make them pay for permanently disabling him.

And when Eustace kidnaps one of their own, the Healys will face the most difficult choice of all: Sacrifice the ranch, or risk the destruction of their family.

This story picks up where book 1 left off. As typical with this genre, the plot is contrived with many illogical decisions and actions. It's light on practical details. The characters are well drawn and Andrew Tell voices these characters distinctly and appropriately. Thankfully, the story ends satisfactorily.

Note: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
