From the back cover:
In the Darkness,
When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have found refuge, but Shelby knows she can’t simply remain hidden. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure he gets it.
Shelby’s best friend and high school sweetheart, Max Berkman, won’t even consider letting her make the perilous journey alone. Together, they manage to reach the capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the brink of anarchy.
Shelby and Max’s search for medical supplies will lead them into terrifying territory, where the only thing more uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making it out of the city alive.
In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.

The saga continues…
Deep Shadows, book one in The Remnant series, left us with a looming dilemma. Aside from technology and electricity no longer working and civilization as we know it deteriorating into chaos, those with life-threatening medical conditions face a bleak future without access to medication.
Raging Storm takes us deeper into the despair and depravity as Shelby and her friends risk everything to find the medication they need. Fantastic pacing and a need to see these friends succeed will keep you turning pages until the very end.
I love the realistic characters and plausible scenes throughout the story. There are so many I wouldn’t know where to begin to choose a favorite!
Honestly, the only thing I disliked about Raging Storm is that I now have to wait for the next book’s release. It can’t come soon enough!
