For years, exiles from North Korea, China, and Russia have terrorized the Western Seaboard of post-Outbreak America. And, for years, the remnants of the US military have struggled to defeat them. No more. After US forces cripple the enemy's ability to wage war, the North Koreans and their allies make a last-ditch effort to save themselves by building internment camps where thousands of Americans are held hostage. The enemy thinks they are invulnerable. They think they have the ultimate leverage. They are wrong.

was worried when the summary left out Eric but fear not. I hope you like Caleb because this is his moment to shine.
Seems the government is not as "down and out" as they would have you believe while the ROK are shown to be more evil than imagined meanwhile Eric makes the smartest move yet by just going home.
Now to sit and wait on the next book... are we there yet!?!

the story continues with some fantastic new characters you will be excited to get to know all the while written so as not to treat the reader like an idiot.
the writer is skilled in the art of leaving the reader wanting more but not in a cheap cliff hanger fashion. never once did I get the feeling this book 2 was being written just to sell book 3. I can not wait for the rest of the story to unfold.
I need more of the giant Preacher and Miss Dotty!

this story has so many layers and just when you think you know what is going to happen next... you get slapped back to reality!
so well written with deep meaningful character progression while truly moving the atory along. leaves you wanting more but not in a cheap "wrote this book purely to sell the next one" way. Honestly the story could end here or it could go on for another 10 books. this story is that good! I will admit my fingers are crossed for 10 more.

In the year 2030 the Maunder Minimum, a period of solar inactivity, will cause a mini-ice age like it did between the years 1645 and 1710. When it does, Bishop will have to save her not only from the effects of severe weather but also from man himself. Maeve Tildon and her son Ben live alone in the rural town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Since her husband died in the war, she's barely kept her head above water, and when the first freeze strikes in the fall, she's completely unprepared for what lies ahead.

a widowed mother and her young son face the "unexpected" ice age with the help of a real world guardian angel/hermit and along the way step up when a whole town is too scared to make a stand.
the sign of a great writer is when they are able write a story with an actual beginning, midddle and a true ending (no stupid cliffhanger) that you feel good about while also leaving the reader anxious to read where the story goes next.
the author paints such a vivid image of the setting that you can't help but see the snow covered landscape while looking into booking a winter weekend on Lake Coeur d'Alene.
ready for book 2!

Kyle Tait, having survived the harrowing, cross-country journey home to his family, must now struggle for existence in a post-EMP world that no one could have imagined just three short months prior. Each day brings new challenges - how to fight the bitter cold, where to scavenge food for the table, and how to best fend off intruders and keep their community safe. As the cold, dark days of winter begin the slow transition to spring, the Tait family is faced with a challenge that dwarfs all others.

the narrator was so bad I almost deleted the book. it was painful. the plot had me on the edge of my seat for the most part which is why I completed the book but for the love of Pete, invest in a better narrator because I will not buy a book again with this guy.

Everything from the plot and characters down to the narrator are 5 stars. The premiss is similar yet very different than anything out there at the moment.
For the first 6 chapters I found myself waiting for that cringe you get when you meet the first zombies and thank God there are none. Instead you find yourself rooting for the good guys as they battle against enemies of their own kind, foreign invaders and a scorched earth battle plan.
You have unlikely enemies and allies coming together to fight against what to most would be insurmountable odds that would make the best of us curl up and check out.
Even better is the amount of useful information not found in the hundreds of other books like this... From the 5 C's down to inspiring the reader to look up EMT classes at your local community college.
I will admit I passed on this book a few times based solely on the length of the book because I am drawn to longer stories first but TAKE MY ADVICE and buy it... I now have another book to add to my list of checking back daily to see if the next one is out yet! So hurry up already :0)

this book is full of helpful ideas and practical knowledge from the main character who much like many of us who have "read it in a book or watched a few youtube how to videos".
even the premise of the book is refreshing and entertaining. This book will have you taking notes while laughing along with the characters as they attempt to put knowledge to the test.

It's now two years since the zombie apocalypse changed the world. Survival is precarious for Zach Gunderson and his friends. They are encountering zombies who are evolving into something more than mindless automatons, and the group dynamic is threatened by the revelation of a murderer in their midst. They handle each situation in their own special manner, but a seemingly innocent encounter with a group of Marines leads to disastrous consequences.
