With the country slowly descending into chaos, a visionary leader takes action. Dave Cavanaugh, a silver-haired outdoorsman, mountain hiker, and billionaire, dubbed the “Richard Branson of the Rockies”, sets in motion a plan to construct walled, gated communities across the country to preserve art, science, medicine, and religion - designed to be islands of calm in a sea of chaos. Much like Noah built an ark before the great flood, Dave intends to build a series of land-based arks before the country completely drowns in chaos.

I have read over 50 post apocalyptic books in the last five years. This is by far the best. Live the plot and characters. I’m hooked.

Rangers take their promises seriously, and when a squad with the 75th Rangers makes a solemn vow to their gravely wounded platoon sergeant, they will move heaven and earth to honor it. When the political structure of the US shifts, the former Rangers will have to go to great lengths to keep their vow.

Anthony and Katherine had heard of Cyber War before, but never thought they would have to figure out how to live through it taking down the grid. Chaos comes fast as people quickly realize the world has changed for good. But the battle also brews for Kat and Tony as they struggle with deciding whether to stay or go. Will they bug in and try to make things work in the city? Or will they leave in time to make it out, away from the mayhem?

Kevin pierce is the best narrator in the business. Not sure why Ms Royce was added to the mix. She was ok, but I would rather have Pierce. Story was ok but the ending was a little superficial.

In spite of Oneida's heroic stand against the Chinese steamroller, foreign armies are poised along the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, preparing for the final assault and America's inevitable defeat. For John, turning back the tide will mean going deep behind enemy lines and organizing the very insurgency he fought so hard against in Iraq. But more than that, it'll mean coming to terms with the brutality of war and the realization that sometimes the deepest scars are the ones that can't be seen.

Ok story but seemed like a rushed ending. I like the premise of the story but seemed like something was missing.

Could we be living in a time of which there is more prophetic writings than of any period in history? Noah Parker, like many in the United States, has been asleep at the wheel. During his complacency, the founding precepts of America have been slowly, systematically destroyed by a conspiracy that dates back hundreds of years. The signs can no longer be ignored and Noah is forced to pull his head out of the sand and see things for what they really are.
