Very good story it helps relax, keeps you focused on the story and set your mind just in the right mood. I've enjoyed this book but still I prefer 1 narrator rather than 2 - although it's justified in this case and I believe many people will like it . Characters are better than in the Atlantis trilogy but for me still a little bit "paper". Overall: Credit well spend :) And I'm looking forward for the next book by A. G. Riddle.

Departure was a very intriguing story with a mysterious plot that had lots of twist and turns and had me on edge and guessing throughout the story. I was unable to stop listening to the story well into the wee hours of the night.
This story was also thought provoking on the chaos that would follow a plan crash if there was no leader or resources to depend on.
My credit was well spent on this story!

The first couple of hours I was very intrigued. There is a plane crash and a rescue by the survivors. This part of the book is well written and I felt like I was there with them. I appreciated, Nick who took charge. One never knows what will happen in an emergency and it is nice to have someone calmly take charge.
NICK, THERE'S A PROBLEM
In the third hour there is a character named Bob, who I kinda liked and kinda didn't. I mention him cause he has one of those pet peeves I hate. He likes to announce problems. He likes to speak in acronyms or say things he knows no one else will understand and than have a pregnant pause, begging you to ask questions. I know a lot of people who do this, including my wife.
THAT SHIT MIGHT SELL T-SHIRTS, BUT DOESN'T HELP ME
I have never read a book that went down hill so fast. The whole book moves along in spurts and sputters. It starts with this group of characters who run away from futuristic people and hide in a farm building. The farm building is the only building for miles. They sleep there and gather supplies. You tell me, if you are looking for a group of people in a rural area and there is only one building around, wouldn't you check that building first? By now Nick is starting to get on my nerves. Nick is young and a self-made millionaire. He is handsome, in good shape, smart, says all the right things at the right time, people do as he says without question, the skinny good looking blonde has a crush on him, but deep down he feels unfulfilled. Excuse me, as I go throw up. It doesn't end there. The skinny good looking blonde, has trouble making decisions that might benefit herself, but does not hesitate, to make decisions that benefit others.
BLIMEY, DOUBLE AND TRIPLE BLIMEY
The story really goes astray from here. The last three hours, Riddle works on his romance skills and it just gets painful to listen to. This reads like a debut novel, pass on this. Narrator is good.
