Book Two in The Perseid Collapse Post Apocalyptic Series
The critically acclaimed, post-apocalyptic saga continues...
With Boston collapsing faster than Alex Fletcher predicted, his personal rescue mission deep into the heart of an increasingly unfamiliar city reaches a critical point. Pursued by a ruthless militia group and forced to navigate a treacherous landscape, he runs a gauntlet of grim decisions and impossible odds to reach perceived safety. Perceived because nothing is safe in the world rapidly emerging after the "event."
In Maine, the consequences of a random, deadly encounter has left Kate Fletcher and her travel companions in a state of perpetual fear. Finally reaching the Fletcher's western Maine retreat, they prepare for the worst--not truly understanding what that means to rogue militia leader, Eli Russell. Nothing can prepare them for what he is willing to unleash.
A series of lethal coincidences fuels Eli's ghastly strategy to raise a private army, planting the Fletcher's firmly at the intersection of his shocking desires--and the epicenter of his rage.
The human darkness released on August 19, 2019 threatens to tear the fabric of society apart, until nothing remains but a distant memory of the past. Event Horizon sets the stage for an epic clash to keep those memories alive and restore hope to a battered nation.

There's "hole" in the recording at 6:13:37, it seems to skip a few seconds - by no means does it hurt the story, or even detract. Just an error in the recording.
With that out of the way, this is a REALLY good book and can't wait for Book 3. Like book 1 it leaves you hanging and wanting more. If you liked Book 1 you'll like Book 2
Most of my books are listened to
Great follow-up to Perseid Collapse
too many to list
Great series...where is book 4-5...
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
After having listened to the others in this series I've got to say Audible has a winning series going and from what I'm seeing more of the same type of adventures, keep them coming Audible.
The story continues with the same great characters and the narrator is very good at his job.
I highly recommend this if you've already listened to first in the series you can't go wrong with any of them.
Tangential, eclectic, avid listener... favorite book is the one currently in ear.
But who knows how many more incomplete books in this series. Picked up both Book 1 and 2 at same time, excited for something similar to "Jakarta Pandemic"... and even using the same family. Didn't even bother to read the reviews... my mistake, first of all this is a series... which doesn't have natural end spots, rather he chooses the most intense spot to stop in both 1 & 2 and no end in sight. It is a fairly clean read, but the violence is WAY more intense than Jakarta and it plays heavily into the military role post event. This is slightly better than the first... writing not as sloppy and more about the family, less about Rambo. Better books than this: "One Second After," "Equipping Modern Patriots," "Objects of Wrath," "Cyber-Storm," "Swan Song," "Alas Babylon," "77 Days in September"... and "Jakarta Pandemic." If you have to choose a never-ending series... I like "The Survivalist Series" better. Wait until more of the books are out and wait for a sale, it wasn't horrid... just not worth a credit to be left dangling.

Noticeably more intense than the “Jakarta Pandemic” and “The Perseid Collapse”, “Event Horizon” takes you on a wild ride from post-apocalyptic Boston, to the south of Maine. Taking place over only a few days, the book doesn’t move the story along very far in terms of time, but really adds to the overall feel of the series, and best of all it leaves off without a big cliff hanger (one of my pet peeves). We’ll written with great characters I highly enjoyed this book.
Great narration by Mr. Farrell really brings the characters to life. He does a great New England accent!
I don't have a bunker and I would starve in 2 1/2 days, but I like to listen to people who do and wouldn't.
This offered a decent progression to the story, but nothing about it jumped out as re - listenable.
This edition ended a little kinder than the last and with an acceptable pause in the story unlike the first which ended in the middle of..........
This is only 1/3 of story. Obviously editors are into making money and not releasing whole stories as one book. I've listened to Event Horizon and Perseid Collapse, both books just stopping in the middle of storyline. So the story is interesting and you should get it if you are made of money. Skip it if you are not made of money. I want to know how the story ends, but I'm reluctant to buy the next book because it will do the same thing: not finishing the story. I guess great books are a thing of the past.
I enjoy survivor stories to learn more about the ideas that might apply to me. The timing of this story is hard to believe. and drugs or not - humans need to sleep. Reader did a great job of defining the characters.
The story is compelling from the get-go. Heart pounding at every turn, with so many shocking, incredible surprises!
I'm not sure I can name a favorite character. The emotions each character exudes is easily transferred to the listener, and each character is so unique, you can't help but like (or hate) them.
And the verbal interpretations of each character are superb, whether male or female. I for one don't assign different voices for each character (at least not consciously), the way John does. It adds much more excitement and enjoyment to the story.
The entire book moved me.
I highly recommend Steven Konkoly as an author and John David Farrell as an auditor.
After reading the first book in this series, I was hesitant to continue with this one. Alex, a combat soldier, was wishy washy about neutralizing a clear and present enemy and as a result, good people were killed.
I'm glad I decided to give this series one last chance. Book 2 is a clear contrast to the first. Alex has seen the errors of his ways and has become decisive and pro active in defending his family and friends.
