    For Army Reserve soldier Michael Cross, the world as he knows it ends in an instant. One minute he’s in college, and the next rioters are roaming the highway around him, breaking into cars and literally tearing people apart. This is the day the dead walk. This is the world of We’re Alive.

    An unpayable debt. A shrinking economy. A nation divided. What is the price needed to prevent civil war? What if the United States can no longer pay that price? Rick Savage finds himself in the middle of a power struggle that could spell the end of the United States. His extensive research leads him to one grim prediction: civil society will all but cease in seven days. He now has only a week to save who and whatever he can before the world descends into chaos.

    What disappointed you about Seven Days?

    Pretty much everything, with the exception of the Christian values displayed by some of the characters was admirable. Also, the author did not have cursing and sex as a necessity in his book


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Mark Tufo's new book


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes. He took a boring story, with boring characters and somehow managed to make them even more boring. I rarely wish any of my audiobooks would hurry up and be over, but this was one of them.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Seven Days?

    I would have to scrap the book and start over.


    Any additional comments?

    Since Patriots, the author's books have seem to be going downhill. I believe he has hit bottom. I have followed the author for awhile and believe him to be a very good person, however, I won't be buying any more of his books.

    Season two of this action-packed audio drama plunges listeners back into a ravaged world of violence and terror. The hope of a better life forces the survivors of the Tower out into the dissolving world around them. The consequences of past battles leave them struggling not only with each other but the remaining fragments of humanity.

    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    What did you like best about Dies the Fire? What did you like least?

    Overall the story and variety of interesting characters keep this book going for me. I would have rated it much higher, but could not get past the author's insistance on making some of the "good" characters pagan satan worshipping witches. I would have thought the author might have been intelligent enough to know that this type of plot line would not appeal to 99% of the readers. Other than that, seems like a pretty realistic view of how society would react and collapse following an EMP type of event with a interesting twist. Great perfomance by narrator.

    America is in the thrall of a full-scale socioeconomic breakdown. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation destroys the value of the dollar, and the population, unprepared for hardship, panics. Practically overnight, the high technology infrastructure and chains of supply collapse and wholesale rioting and looting grip every city. Law enforcement, transportation, electricity, fuel, and medical supplies are all in the past now, as the country staggers beneath its own weight.

    Would you listen to Survivors again? Why?

    Unlike Patriots that I listen to three times, I am probably good listening to Survivors once. It is slow getting started and bounces back and forth between characters way too much. I did like the additional background information on some of the characters from the Patriots book, but some just seem to be boring background filler. Still entertaining enough for a credit.

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    What did you love best about Patriots?

    Story line and performance were excellent. Not as hard core as "One Second After" and goes into more detail on how the characters prepared and survived. "Survivors" is the follow-up book and adds a few extra characters and gives some more background information on "Patriots" characters. Very realistic senerio for the upcoming economic collapse and good strategys for preparing. Also great preppers forum by Author.
