    For Gordon Van Zandt, life was one of duty and loyalty to his country, so when 9/11 happened he dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps. This youthful idealism soon vanished, one fateful day in a war torn city in Iraq. Ten years later, he is still struggling with the ghosts of his past, but must now face a new reality thrust upon him and his family.

    North America, Europe, and the Far East have all suffered a devastating Super-EMP attack that has caused catastrophic damage

    So Dissapointed

    So I usually love this genre, but this ranks closely to my least favorite "end of the world" as we know it book. The writing style is a mess. I didn't..Show More »

    Only six weeks have passed since a super-EMP attack devastated the United States, but already, life has changed dramatically. Most of America has become a wasteland filled with starving bands of people, mobs and gangs. Millions are dead and millions more are suffering, with no end in sight. For Gordon, Samantha, Sebastian, Cruz, and Barone, the turmoil and chaos they dealt with in the early weeks after the attack will seem trivial in comparison to the collapse of society that plays out before their eyes.

    Too many Cliches!

    I cannot understand how this book gets a good review from anybody - one bad cliche after another, poor writing, no, terrible writing. Good narration...Show More »

    Months after a super-EMP attack devastated the United States, the country is now unrecognizable. Major cities are run by gangs, survivors are dying of starvation and the government is falling victim to lawlessness. Those who were prepared for the end find that they weren't really prepared at all. While some seek vengeance for their losses, others are determined to restore the nation. Gordon, Samantha, Sebastian, Barone, Connor and Pablo are all on different paths, but they are all in search of a home away from chaos.

    Good 3rd book. Do NOT change narrators mid-series

    I enjoyed this series, and eagerly sped through all the books. But this audiobook takes a great story and throws the listener a huge curve ball with a..Show More »

    In the fourth book, The Line of Departure, the United States is on the brink of total anarchy in the wake of a super-EMP attack. Gordon Van Zandt and his family have managed to beat the odds so far, but can they survive once war erupts?

    Story OK

    Narrator is not good. Can't tell the difference between characters . His gravel voice sounds bad as a female &I barely managed to make it to the end.

    All Gordon Van Zandt wanted was to find a safe place for his family to settle down after civilization came to an abrupt end following the detonation of a super-EMP over North America. Through hardship and loss he found a sanctuary in the mountains of Idaho; however, the realities of the new world again come crashing down when his brother, Sebastian, is murdered by a deranged US Army officer hell-bent on crushing a secessionist movement Gordon had no part of.

    Good book

    I wish they would not switch narrators so often, but other than that love the series

    Gordon Van Zandt is a man accustomed to adversity and hardship, but now he is left with dwindling options. With his fledgling republic teetering on the verge of collapse, he must find a way to seize an unlikely victory from what appears to be certain defeat. President Cruz is no stranger to the position he holds, having served in Conner's absence before. However, this time the job is proving to be difficult and downright impossible.

    Great love stories read by Prince Valium

    The war between the Republic of Cascadia and the rogue nation Western Canada is raging. With support from President Cruz in the United States, Gordon Van Zandt has assembled a formidable army to march north and engage the forces of Western Canada, who have occupied much of the panhandle of Idaho. Gordon must defeat Jacques and his army swiftly, but to do so requires a final decisive battle.

    Terrible ending to what was a great series

    The series started off strong but this ending just felt forced. It was very anti climatic and just seemed like he wanted to cut it off quickly. As I h..Show More »
