Earth's last man discovers that the last woman is stranded alone aboard the International Space Station. If you like action-packed novels, you'll love the electrifying action in this apocalyptic thriller.
Can humanity's last two unite?
Separated by the gulf of space, the last man and woman of the human race struggle against astronomical odds to survive and unite.
Army Aviator Vaughn Singleton is a highly intelligent, lazy man. After a last-ditch effort to reignite his failing military career ends horribly, Vaughn becomes the only human left on Earth.
Stranded alone on the International Space Station, Commander Angela Brown watches an odd wave of light sweep across the planet. Over the next weeks and then months, Angela struggles to contact someone on the surface, but as she fights to survive aboard a deteriorating space station, the commander glimpses the dark underpinnings of humanity's demise.
After months alone, Vaughn discovers there is another. Racing against time, he must cross a land ravaged by the consequences of humankind's sudden departure.
Can Vaughn find a path to space and back? Can Angela - the only person with clues to the mystery behind humanity's disappearance - survive until he does?

I had the pleasure of reviewing Dean Cole’s Duology of Sector 64. This made me extra super excited to have the chance to listen to Cole’s newest, Solitude. I have seen ads running in different places that calls this a cross between The Martian and I Am Legend. I know, right?! This got my interest doubly piqued. But, I don’t think I would have compared this to I Am Legend. Because, well, there were no zombie vampire-like creatures.
Let me say this, Cole has quite the imagination! Basically, there are two separate stories going on untile they merge closer to the end. There is a mission on the space station when the apocalypse happens. Most of the crew was killed, one was spared or more like stranded. On Earth, two guys are in a zero-G room when it happened. They were spared because they were not technically on the planet. With a nice surprise that I didn’t see coming at the end. Very curious as to where Cole is going to take this story. Ok I have said enough here.
Cole wastes very little time for anything to happen. We are introduced to the characters and them BOOM! The apocalypse happens. And we are left with the two protagonists dealing with the fallout. Emotionally, mentally and physically.
Cole was able to make the events of his apocalypse so vivid, so intriguing, with multi-faceted characters and circumstances. I devoured this audiobook so fast, I almost listened to it again, just because I didn’t want it to end. I will be first in line for the rest of this series.
What can I really say about RC Bray and Julia Whelan that you do not already know? Both are at the top of their game. The chapters and sections were read alternately. I found that Whelan’s portions were noticeably louder than Bray’s, the first switch made me jump out of my skin. That’s the only negative. Cole was smart and/or lucky to get two of the best voices in the business for this project. I really hope that they both stay on board for the rest of the series.
