The ARkStorm (for Atmospheric River 1000 Storm) has brought a devastating flood of biblical proportions to California forcing millions of people to evacuate. For the preppers attending PrepperStock this year, the troubles brought about by this disaster have just begun as the economy begins a slow collapse and acts of terrorism threaten America's survival.
Our story follows several preppers and family members through daily life leading into the beginning of the ARkStorm and grid failures. Refugee camps are filling up with millions of evacuees who remained at shelters and were not lucky enough to bunk in with friends or relatives and try and start over again. The end of a functioning U.S. economy is compounded by mysterious grid failures nationwide.
The ARkStorm series is patterned after the 1861-62 historical events that flooded the central valley of California. The scientifically realistic 'superstorm' scenario developed and published by the United States Geological Survey has been adapted as a story line that includes the author's modern day applications of emergency management principles with a prepper community slant. Keep your feet and your powder dry folks!

Now this was a interesting disaster fiction read and listen. I had never even heard of an ARkStorm until this author presented it. It is quite a scary thought this catastrophe is predicted scientifically to happen in my lifetime, like I didn't have enough to worry about already after reading Ron`s other books! Phil narrated this one well and it was a good listen. I look forward to more from both of these great storytellers.
I never write anything negative but on this one, I just could not find anything good about it and hate that I paid to hear it. The narrator's voice is mechanical and it was painful to listen to, as well as the story being so fragmented with explanations of the how to or political views that it totally made it impossible to feel the characters in the book and ruined whatever the story part of this book could have been. I love to know how to with prepping but to in such a way that it destroys the book I have paid my hard earned money to enjoy. I feel cheated out of my money and my book credit. :(
