America continues to teeter on the brink of collapse after terrorists detonate black-market nukes from container ships.
With deadly clouds of radiation swooping in from the wasteland of American port cities, Paul Edwards and his father-in-law, Buck, seek shelter in a spectacular government bunker, the likes of which has never been seen.
They've succeeded in finding safety from the dangers outside, but in a world without rules, trust can be a deadly thing.

Okay, this is an okay book with an okay story (the characters aren't very deep, but the topic is interesting). However, there are no prepper skills, ideals, etc... discussed. Sure it's a continuation of book one, and a post SHTF seeing, but there is none of the substance most peppers are looking to find in these books. Worse, it is very short (less than 5hrs if I recall correctly) so you get very little for your money/credit to begin with. Frankly, I want my credit back so I don't have to wait until Nov (it's Oct 5th as I write this, fyi) for another book.
The book took on a different twist with the bunker and I thought it dragged at times. The ending was melodrama and it sounded like they just wanted to get done with it. The first book was better in my opinion.
The book wasn't what I expected. It was more government corruption and intrigue verses action. I was surprised to find that I enjoyed it anyway and am starting the sequel. Just be prepared for a different spin than most of the apocalypse books on the market.
The authors went way out on this one, too far into never, never land.
I normally like SHTF books but this story was odd and slow and lacked the characters, circumstances and environment to keep my interest.
Narrator Johnny Heller did a good job, but the plot was just fair at best.
