When an early snow ravages the small town of Plainfield, the residents are stripped of heat, power, and mobility. They'll soon wish they had protection. Somewhere outside, something else is lurking. Waiting for the chance to strike... This bundle contains the first three books in the Outage series: Outage, Outage 2: The Awakening, and Outage 3: Vengeance.

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
IT HAD PLANS FOR HER
This is three long short stories or novelettes. Each running close to three hours. I loved the first story Outage. Piperbrook showed that he can build suspense with the best of them. If you listened to this I suggest you give it your full attention. You don't want the suspense to be interrupted. The first story also had some real cool twists that I did not see coming. In one chapter we were even able to get into the head of the werewolf. I wish TW could have done more of that. I always like to hear what the bad guy is thinking. The first story got me all excited for the next two stories and I was going to get Contamination, to see if his talents extended to that series. I also like that it is in third person, I don't care much for first person horror stories.
THE QUIET FELT LIKE A SECOND ENTITY
I just could not get into the second story or the third. The main character Tom is just not that interesting. It also was mostly chase scenes. I even saw the twist in book two coming way ahead of time, since it was a rerun of book one. I was surprised though, in the epilogue of book three. Book one is a five star story, so you need to decide if you want to get it separate or get the bundle and take your chances.
The narrator is excellent for this series.
Yes I would, It was well written and a great listen. It kept me on the edge of my seat right from the beginning. I have been listening to a lot of wolf shifter romance lately and this was a great change of pace. I hope T.W. decides to write book #4
When the young couple let their secret out, I did not see that coming, after that I didn't trust anybody.
I liked several characters but I would have to say Tom.
Oh my gosh yes, there was never really a time in it when I felt I could take a break from it. It was just a great book.
Thanks T.W. Piperbrook, I loved your book and hoping for a next book !

I am not very good at writing reviews, but I just wanted to say I have greatly enjoyed this series .
Great story line, lots of action and plot twist.
And a surprise ending, I did not see coming.
And thankfully I found books 4 and 5.
What happens in a matter of hours in one night , you feel as if the time in the story line is days or weeks.
so much happens in one night, fast passed and never a dull moment!
Loved this series!
I have never considered myself a werewolf fiction fan, but this book collection changed that. The story hits the ground running by instantly throwing the reader into a terrifying situation as a man goes from worrying about annoying his wife to fighting for his life. Things only got more intense after that as first one character then another found themselves fighting the elements and creatures out of nightmares. I was constantly on the edge of my seat never knowing who was going to make it and the author consistently surprised me with well timed plot twists. What I loved the most was the authors wonderful ability to "show" rather than tell. I was cuddled up in blankets longing for hot chocolate because just reading the book made me feel as if I was in the middle of a blizzard struggling through the snow with my favorite characters.
This author did something right that allot don't. He was able to kill off main characters without me wanting to throw down my ipod & walk away from the book! Drives me insane when an author kills off a character because he thinks he should not because it is needed for the story. grrrr Horrible storm comes to New England. Town is isolated & storm takes out the powers. Apparently "they" have been waiting for this storm. The main character is "Tom". Not your typical hero. He's in his 50's. NOT an ex police, ex military nor is he ex rambo. Just regular guy. I love it. The story revolves around Tom & his battle with creatures that come out to play when the snow hits. The creatures are how they should be. Violent, scary, huge and everywhere! Tom loses loved ones, friends and saves allot of people. I don't want to give anything away but you'll love it. I did. AWESOME! Can't wait for the next I've listened to 1-3, 4 & 5. Narrator GREAT. You will NOT regret it.
Kept me on the edge of my seat right from the start. The action started right away. You don't know who to trust, there are twists in the story. Werewolves the way they should be, horrifying scary no Love Story. The narrator Troy did an excellent job.
I was looking for a good werewolf book, but 90% of them are Twilight-like romance books for teen girls. Thankfully, I found this book, and it was a fantastic horror novel that really did werewolves justice. The suspense was real, the energy and pacing were frantic, and the twists. Oh, the twists. You won't see them coming, and that makes them all the more valuable.
I almost didn't buy this book based on a few negative reviews, but they were wrong. Those reviewers were obviously just looking for a happy ending, and this book does not provide that. It's a great piece of writing.
