"I thought Praying for Rain was one of the most amazing books I'd ever read...and the second one is even better!!!!!" (T.M. Frazier, USA Today best-selling author)
The world was supposed to end on April 23, but Rainbow Williams’s world ended days before that. The mass hysteria caused by the impending apocalypse claimed everything she’d ever loved. Her family. Her city. Her will to live. Until she met him.
Wes Parker didn’t have anything left for the apocalypse to take...he’d already lost it all by the time he was nine years old. His family. His home. His hope of ever being loved.
Until he met her.
Brought together by fate and bound by a love that would last lifetimes, Rain and Wes were prepared to die together on April 23.
They were not prepared for what would happen on April 24.

Interesting ideas, but they aren’t fully realized
Audible listen. I like the female narrator, and the male narrator has grown on me. The male narrator fits Wes well. The female does a good job with all the characters. A good listening performance.
This is book 2 and follows right after the ending of the last book, so I’d recommend reading the previous book before this one. I’m going to go with a 3 rating for this one because I preferred book 1 and gave it a 4 rating. This one didn’t have much story to it besides the mental and emotional issues that Rain is having, so there wasn’t really any growth of character for her. She’s scared to go outside now, so she ends up staying in a bad situation because she’s too fragile. She still can’t handle much emotionally, and gloms onto whoever is available. Rain and Wes join a group of survivors at the mall; Rain’s ex is part of the group, and it’s run by an annoying, ridiculous character called Q. She’s around Rain’s age, and for some reason, even the adults let her boss them around. Q is particularly mean to Rain. Q and the other characters involved in this whole staying at the mall are characters I didn’t care for. Wes does not want to stay at the Mall, so he ends up leaving Rain there because she tells him she doesn’t want to leave. Wes still has that leave them before they leave you mentality; he does have sweetheart tendencies, but he’s still combating past trauma. The reasoning behind what was happening with the supposed apocalypse wasn’t satisfactory; I don’t see how there aren’t more leaders or whoever to stop the broadcasting of murders for a totally stupid reason. It doesn’t make sense, and wasn’t properly thought out. The story is still interesting, and I already own the paperback and audio for the next book, so I’ll give it a go. I just hope Rain stops coming across as so pathetic; she has trauma in the past, but her reactions seem excessive. I want to see her stand up for herself more and thrive!

OMG I need more
I barely survived this book, the long wait was totally worth, but now I need the next one. This book made me feel like I was running a marathon, my heart is still recovering. The amazing suspense from book one definitely has nothing to this one, Wes and Rain's story is so different from what I usually read, and well BB Easton surprised us all with the new apocalyptic theme to her books. In this book Wes and Rain are tested to the limit, new world to try to stay alive, but the twists in the story keep you on the edge of your seat for the full ride. Brilliant must read book series. I can't wait to read the conclusion and find what happens next. I definitely give a standing ovation to the author for giving me a ride of a lifetime with this trilogy!
