all three books it is the same plot over and over and over not believable take the same ten pages and rewrite again and again. flat , flat flat count them 184 time "ethereal" he cannot think of another name for darkness. Juvenal story i made the mistake of buying all three books at the same time. A waste of time and money.
I can see that I will be an outlier on my opinion on this book and the series. I had some issues with the first book but was interested enough to continue and see what happened. For most of this second book, the actual EMP is incidental and is just a medium for confusion and opportunity (for bad guys), but not much about surviving the actual EMP. Sarah's story, rather incredibly, is a continuation of a year-long plan after the failed kidnaping and death of her daughter, to now grabbing her as a sex slave. Really? Russell's story with Cathy and Thomas had been a lot better and more about surviving the EMP, but in this book is just a struggle against a long standing bully of a land 'baron' and the corrupt LE in his pocket. Really? And the sheriff gets a sudden and opportune change of conscience? Really? And the bad guy didn't want to actually kill Cathy but to convince her to become friends so that the town would think better of him? Really?? I get that a major disaster of this type would allow a lot of ill-intentioned opportunists to take advantage of it, but all the bad guy stuff is from before the EMP and the disaster is rendered to be background noise. Not continuing.
This series keeps getting better with each book. This book was non stop action from the beginning to the end. We did not see the plot twist coming. Wow, that sure kept us guessing. Can’t wait until the next book. If you have not read this author then you are missing out, he is great. Get the books and leave your reviews.

I always try to live by the adage "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all." The problem with that here is that I feel a need to offer my opinion to save others from reading this series. Just don't start it - it's not worth it. I will post a detailed evaluation for the final book.
A great second installment for this series. I enjoyed it immensely. Great characters and plot. Reads fast and keeps your attention throughout the story. No sexual content but does have a good amount of violence. I recommend it for teens and up.

I liked book 2 better than book 1. Lots more action, more plot twists and surprises. This is a really great Post-Apocalyptic book. I would say it is PG-13 for violence. Can’t wait to read book 3 to see how Derek Shupert ties it all together.
