Two unlikely survivors fight to stay alive
5 out of 5 stars
John Q Prepper and ML Banner write a story about survival, specifically the survival of two young “kids.” One who is in her early twenties and her younger brother. Together they must survival multiple attacks on the US and get to their godfather’s house to be safe.
The story was narrated by Mikael Naramore, who does a great job. He made this jumpy story easy to follow, which is no easy feat. He did do voices for some of the characters. All of which felt real and not “faked” to me. I enjoyed the story a lot with Naramore telling it.
Highway was a really well-told story. The back and forth with different stories that all intertwined was really well done and easy to follow. Sometimes when a story jumps around like that, the audiobook is harder to follow, but Highway was not at all.
Just for the twists and turns that this book took it would get 5 stars, but the story line really was fun and interesting to follow. The parts that got nitty and gritty were needed and there wasn’t a lot of unneeded story at all.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it in the beginning, but by the end, I was totally in shock with the twists and turns that the authors decided to take. They really did a good job making the story feel scary and real. Some post-apocalyptic and prepper books don’t do a good job with this.
Overall, Highway was really enjoyable and any prepper or post-apocalyptic fan will enjoy this interesting tale. I can’t wait to find out what happens in their continued story.

A flash of light crippled society in an instant...
For young Lexi Broadmoor and her brother Travis, the detonation not only took their father away, but their future as well. Now stranded on a highway far from home without any survival skills or someone to protect them, staying alive will depend on their wits, a single bug-out bag, and a map to a stranger's house.
With the grid down and a nation quickly descending into chaos, they'll need to hurry, because the lawless are taking over.
But a larger threat looms.
A mysterious foe has set in motion a countdown to Armageddon; unknown to Lexi and Travis, they're part of the plan.
