In the riveting sequel to the Amazon top 10 best seller EMP: Equipping Modern Patriots - A Story of Survival, Jonathan Hollerman masterfully paints a realistic world of chaos and despair and an incredible will to survive in the aftermath of a nationwide, long-term, grid-down scenario.
When the retreat where Sean and Maria reside suddenly grows exponentially, they must make tough decisions on splitting up and dividing their resources. Unknowingly, this leaves them vulnerable to a new, much larger threat that looms nearby. The devastation of America is also revealed through the eyes of a new character, Lt. Col. Bruce Harris, Commander, 31st Infantry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division. Colonel Harris is tasked with restoring electricity to the small town of Warren, PA, reestablishing order to the area, and tracking down a rogue platoon of Army Rangers that are reportedly pillaging the countryside. All is not as it seems though, and his orders will have life-changing consequences that leave him questioning where his true loyalty lies.

If I wanted to read the Bible I would have bought one. This is not a story about the end of the world. It's a story how god will save us all if we pray and believe. Disappointed.
The Marines have Scout Snipers the Army doesn't, the Army has Scouts and Snipers but not under the same job title. A bit more research into the military before writing this would have been appreciated, but overall it's a good story.
Firstly the reader for Aftermath was better than the first book by leaps and bounds. That made the story much easier to follow and the gave the characters depth. The story was good and a very good addition to the genre in general and the first book specifically. So..."the government" chooses to play games with its citizens. No surprise there, but that angle was not overly dark and sinister. The overarching concern was what happens to communities that settle in for the long haul when federal forces do show up and how are they equipped to handle long-term issues. I dedicated time to listening to this book that I would not have normally...and I have no complaints about how we are left wide open for a third book.
This was an ok book. I wouldn't read it again, but I listened to the whole thing. The author just isn't a novelist and the details were just few and far between to be a real prepper book. It was just the best of neither world.
Good storyline with enough twists and turns to keep the lister. The narrator was very good, and his voice pleasing to listen to. To me well worth the money spent.
I purchased both the Kindle & Audible versions of the story. Payday I will order the printed version.
I must admit that the reader/listener should read book one first.
