"Susie Breck contributes significantly to the emotional tone of the second installment in Blackstock's Restoration series. After a catastrophic event, the Banning family, along with the rest of the world, must learn to live without electricity. Crime abounds, danger is ever present, and no one knows or understands what is happening. Doug Banning seeks to organize a neighborhood group to learn to help each other. His daughter, Deni, fears for her fiancŽ, who lives hundreds of miles away and, under the circumstances, has no means of communication. Suspense abounds in this dramatic thriller, and so does love. Breck adds to the intensity and drama with her superb presentation. N.L. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
