It is silence, not screams of terror, which proclaims the end of the world...Minji Nordim is vacationing in Las Vegas with her small family when she witnesses the beginning of a terrifying apocalypse. When humanity is transformed into mindless drones by a terrifying supernatural event only Minji appears to be immune. Thousands die instantly, but the other affected people are drawn to the Nevada desert.
Nothing stands in the way of the mesmerized. Not fire, not heights, not rubble. As the bodies pile in the streets and the relentless wave of the mesmerized plods into the deadly desert, Minji is trapped in a burning city attempting to rescue her family. When Minji encounters other unaffected survivors, they band together to survive in a city that is crumbling all around them. With no hope of rescue and the event slowly spreading across the world, Minji and the others must decide who to save among the mesmerized and where to go before the city is in ashes. Even more unsettling is that Minji senses that the force behind the event is observing them...Can one woman save her family and the world?

Very much in Frater genre
I came to this book via ‘The First Days’ audio book. It’s very much a similar theme, almost as if this is one story told over different genres (be it Zombie or apocalyptic). Frater has found a silhouette that mimics much of the Mills and Boon of the 70’s and she has turned out novella after novella. I was ok with the weak premise and recycling of sentences from previous work but the most frustrating thing was the use of one single expletive (the only expletive!) strung out through her writing. All her characters seem to know one swear word and it is said without any reference to the situation or seeming connection to events. This story runs slowly as though someone put a lot of thought into the first 5 hours of audio and then quickly decided to throw and ending together.
