Locker Nine

Narrated by Kevin Pierce


Her dad taught her survival, self-defense, and shooting, then sent her away to college hoping she’d never need those skills. He was wrong.

Grace Hardwick’s dad is a science fiction writer who makes his living destroying the world. When Grace decides to go away for her first year of college her dad, Robert, can’t help but think of all of the potential ways that society could collapse and strand his daughter hundreds of miles from home. Then, near the end of her freshman year, it happens. Like a scene from one of Robert’s books, coordinated terror attacks take place at dozens of locations around the country – including on the campus of Grace’s university.

Grace and her father barely have time for a single rushed phone call before they lose signal. In that call, Robert reminds his daughter of the key he gave her when she left for school – the key that she constantly wears around her neck. She doesn’t know what it opens. She doesn’t know where the engraved numbers will lead her. All she knows is that her dad is not the type to let her go hundreds of miles from home with no backup plan.

With her roommate in tow, Grace embarks on a treacherous journey that may lead her home or may lead her right into the path of another stranded traveler — a disturbed gamer who sees nothing but opportunity in a world that now closely resembles that of his favorite video games.


Locker Nine

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ah… how nice to finally have a story about a competent young woman, you know one that doesn’t just stand there until a man tells her what to do, one that doesn’t just run and has the prerequisite fall to the ground! Yep, finally one that, in my mind, I would be like if I were caught up in the apocalypse.

Smoking Gun

Smoking Gun

College freshman Grace Hardwick has been taught from a young child how to fend for herself by her prepper dad, and after a large-scale terrorist attack destroys the US infrastructure, everything she’s learned from dear ole dad will be put to the test. Each decision she makes can mean the difference between life and death as she and her best friend leave the college campus and try desperately to make it home.

Luckily her father has made plans for the inconceivable and stockpiled supplies and weapons off campus, where? you guessed it, locker #9.

On a different arc to this story, life long gamer, druggie and slacker Ray and his friends are heading back home after a road trip, when to their chagrin they get wind of the attacks as they are making their way back home. The ensuing stress causes Ray behavior to become increasingly erratic and when he finally snaps, the monster he becomes is horrifying!

Here's Johnny


If there’s any criticism it’s that I could have done without the political pandering at the beginning. It truly added nothing to the story and could have been left out.
The narration by Kevin Pierce was stellar as usual, he rarely makes a misstep!
I listened to the audiobook version of this book. Overall if you’re a post-apocalyptic junkie like me you’ll love this audiobook too.
This audiobook was given to me at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review, thanks, Audiobook Boom.
