As always, Kevin Pierce is an excellent narrator! I always enjoy his work! He's an excellent story teller and does a great job with character voices!..Show More » I love a good post apocalyptic or post disaster story. Looking forward to book 2!
Cassie and team (or clan as they've taken to call themselves) are back at it again. This time, they are traveling across the perilous countryside try..Show More »ing to get to her homestead outside of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Along the way, they will come across many problems, some external, and some internal.
The narration for EMP Exodus was done by Kevin Pierce. If you are first time reader of my blog and read this review for the first time you don't know how much I enjoy Pierce's voice, especially for Prepper-type books. He really has the perfect voice for the type of person that I imagine is a prepper. Pierce's voice allows for this story to just flow off of the page and into your ears.
EMP Exodus was enjoyable but finished just when the story started getting good! Don't get me wrong, the story was still good, but being a series book -- it just ended when things were really getting interesting. Like I genuinely thought I had at least another hour left in the book when I hear "this concludes EMP Exodus.." I was shocked!
The book has a lot of internal struggle in it. Both within the group and within certain members of the clan. I found that to be really interesting and I found myself really invested in these characters. I know that some of them were from the first book, but it was nice to get an even deeper dive into their views. You don't normally get that in the second book in a series.
If all three are available (as long as the third finishes the series), I would definitely try to line them up and listen to them in order. The stories really play off of each other and this one picks up right where the first book left off. And I know that the third book will do the same.
Overall, a really enjoyable prepper book filled with internal struggles and a lot of prepper knowledge and instinct narrated by the wonderful Kevin Pierce.
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Continuing the story of Cassy and her clan, EMP Deadfall takes place at the oasis that was Cassy's prepper compound. Unfo..Show More »rtunately, there are still people out there who want to see her and everyone that she's helped dead.
EMP Deadfall was narrated by Kevin Pierce who has narrated the rest of the series. He does a perfect job, as always with this. The production quality and storytelling by Pierce made this story even better than it already was.
There was nothing wrong with book 3, it had a lot of great story in it and even more action, but it really feels like it is being drawn out now. I know that trilogies are the new thing and writing at least three books is becoming the norm. But not all stories need three books to tell. Like I said, I still enjoyed this book a lot.
Cassy has grown on me with each book, and she has really has proven to be a great leader for the clan. Her character has easily had one of the longest arc's in the whole series. She's grown, changed, and learned throughout each one. Each book leaving her a slightly different person and character. It's really awesome that Foster and Holden can write such a dynamic character that is able to adapt and grow like that.
Overall, EMP Deadfall had a lot of elements I really enjoyed, and a few things that felt like they were re-used from the other books. The re-use and extended shelf-life of this book only knock it down .5 in my rating because I still really enjoyed it!
I was given a free copy of this book.
