A mysterious dead man directs the small band on their journey to a much safer corridor he dubs The King’s Highway.
Airplanes are falling out of the sky, and all things electric rendered useless after a mysterious flash. It tests the grit of fifteen-year-old Jackson Allison when the care and safety of his younger siblings fall solely to him. No one knows for sure what’s happened, but danger lurks if they stay. With a fierce determination to keep his thirteen-year-old sister McKenzie and nine-year-old brother Cooper safe, the high school freshman is compelled to leave their Irving home in the shadow of the DFW Airport for their grandparents’ farm a hundred-plus miles northeast.
Thrust into a lawless, chaotic world, he’s guided by an ever-changing cryptic note that leads his growing troupe along the King’s Highway. Bullies, Russians, wild animals, gang-bangers, and kidnappers thwart their progress while a lack of drinkable water and food is a constant concern. Will he ever get his people to safety in the Red River Valley in far Northeast Texas?
An unexplained event has turned out the lights and the children are at home by themselves. This story tells the dangers that come next and how they survive. Great story line as I think this is every parents nightmare.
Wonderful details and so many great characters I just couldn't put it down. So many dangers lurked on every corner that I wanted know how the children would fare. Thank goodness they had God watching and guiding them as they go along.
I loved how this book ended, but yet it left you wanting to know more. Perfect! I did feel that the author could back up some and explain more about the grandparents.
This is a great book for early teens through adults.
A great great read!
