On a flight to London, passengers Harper Lane, Nick Stone, Sabrina Schröder, Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, have no idea that their lives are about to change forever… but change they do.
When the plane loses power and crashes into a remote area in the English country side, the surviving passengers have to come up with a plan for survival. Yet it is Nick Stone a venture capitalist, along with Sabrina (genetic researcher, Yul Tan (computer scientist), Grayson (son of a billionaire), and Harper (writer), who start to see that perhaps this crash was not an accident at all…
And what is at stake is bigger than all of the world.
I went into this read looking for a dystopian style of read. It has been a long time since I have read a good dystopian and this one sounded like it could be just the ticket.
The Departure was not exactly what I had hoped for, but it was interesting… more sci-fi than dystopian. I listened tot his on audio and narrators Nicola Barber and Scott Aiello are both new to me but really did an excellent job. It was actually Nicola Barber’s sample listen on Audible that sold me on this one.
While I didn’t love this one, I did like it. I am not the biggest sci fi fan and feel that someone more into that genre would find this worth a read or a listen.

This book definitely sounds like it could be interesting. I’ll have to check it out (although I’ll go for a written version – I tend to miss half the story when I listen! LOL).
This one is probably not for me, as I don’t lean toward Sci-Fi…or even very many dystopian novels. Thanks for sharing.
I like AG RIddle and this sounds like one I would like to try. Thanks for your thoughts.
