Publisher's Summary

Ya' lives by the sun, ya' dies by the sun.

Life is always at a turning point...

when faced with a certain death...

would you be willing to seize the moment...

and do what it takes to survive?

Know this. You'll never know where the bend in the road might take you.

The new dystopian, post-apocalyptic fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series) has been hailed as a masterpiece of prepper fiction. Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained as The Blackout Series continues with Turning Point.

In book one of this new post-apocalyptic survival fiction series, 36 Hours, the listener was provided a glimpse into the rapid decline of society once word of the catastrophic solar flare racing towards Earth began to spread.

Book two, Zero Hour, thrust our character into the perils of a post-apocalyptic world. At Zero Hour, an EMP caused by a massive solar flare left America in darkness. The Ryman family, who weren't preppers, applied common sense, logic, and a will to survive to their decision-making as they faced their death, their neighbors, and the depravity of man.

Now, in Turning Point, the characters face a life altering decision - should we stay or should we go? The oldest and strongest emotion in man is fear, and the strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. Will Americans flee the urban centers, the proverbial golden hordes, for the countryside? Will it be safer than the cities? Turning Point will lead the Ryman family into a complex, inexplicable world where danger lurks around every bend.

Note: This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults.

    Story
    "Akart is TOP SHELF"
    Where does Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bobby's new series is just as timley and current as tomorrows possiable headline.. It is about an ORDINARY family dealing with extrodinary times.. Not a special forces guy with all the newest weapons, a bunker and all his war buddies..just plain folk..


    What other book might you compare Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series to and why?

    Akarts books stand alone.. hard to compare him with others..he is in a class by himself.. like J.W. Rawles , Farrlel Kingsly, Franklin Horton and Hopf and Mark Goodwin.. Akart has his special touch and flavor


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to choose just one


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Akarts books make you THINK

    "Want More!"
    Where does Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really liked this series. Liked book 3 the best. Couldn't wait to see what happened next!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The realistic banter and the story. Made me wonder how long I would last in this world. Not very long I'm afraid.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Savannah situation.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I wish they were longer books. I understand the author dividing them into three books. BUT this would have made one great book.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming and make them at least ten hours.

    "A Little Bit Country a Whole lot of Rock and Roll!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Really enjoyed the series Bobby, the Rymans have found their niche in this new world just fine and have adapted well to. I enjoyed their marital bantering and the whole dynamic of the road trip. Cant wait to see what happens next. Also please do not make Kevin sing again! LOL


    What other book might you compare Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series to and why?

    Going Home by A. American, the road trip and events during define whether the main characters have a chance to make it in this crazy new world. Maddy has to become more like Morgan to make it thru hell Alex is already there! Alex should have her own series call it Kill em all Let God sort em out!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I guess when they realized they town Sheriff and his boys were not escorting them thru town! That Oh spit moment where the decisions you make determine life or death for you and your crew.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Hard to say, I enjoyed them all


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, Bobby just keep them coming! I am all caught up!!!

    Story
    "tension around every curve"

    The Rymans decide to leave their home and head for safer ground. Where this safer ground exists is the great unknown. They head for a friend’s ranch in Tennessee not knowing whether they will be welcome or not. This volume chronicles their travels, primarily along the Natchez Trace. It seems as though every bend conceals another group of crazed survivors wanting to take whatever the Rymans have, potentially including their lives. This is a great addition to the Blackout Series; well-developed characters with plenty of action and tension around every curve. My favorite narrator Kevin Pierce brings much to the story.

    Story
    "The Sago continues in fantastic fashion!"
    What did you love best about Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series?

    That it's not the last book in the series!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it is written in a very realistic sense, that everything that happens could easily happen to anyone in such situation.


    What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

    He's just so consistent in his portrayal of characters, not only within this book but in all of his narrations. He makes it sound so effortless, unlike so many that seem to try so hard to portray the characters that they just sound phony.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Alex giving the little boy the comic book. Such a touching moment by a teenager in recognizing the despair of family and doing something so small but so meaningful for him.


    Any additional comments?

    Really wasn't sure where the Buford Pusser story line was headed early in the book but just knew that it would come together somehow, which it obviously did. Love the way Bobby takes side stories like that and brings them into the fold of the main story! Another home run book by Mr Akart!!

    "I enjoy Bobby's stories alot"
    Would you listen to Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series again? Why?

    yes,,, I reread all books I enjoy


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Turning Point: A Post-Apocalyptic EMP Survival Fiction Series?

    sad to say one mistake that was multiplied and I could not get it out of my mind as I finished the book,,, This is fiction that is leaning upon some historical facts which have been reversed from reality, The South was Democrat and Bobby made several mistakes based upon this error, That is my only peeve


    Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes and I like him very much


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    many spots that I cannot point to just one


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Bobby
