In Torrent, Abrahams plunges his characters into an unforgiving flood. College students on vacation, a family trapped and unable to swim, a journalist out of his depth, and a doctor prepared but overwhelmed all face the rising water. The beginnings of a conspiracy begin to surface, possibly connecting strangers and their roles in catastrophes they only vaguely recall.

Ash was okay, the fire book I couldn’t finish, but this was a good book. I really like where it’s going and maybe this should have been book #1. This has the end of the world and dark matter by Blake crouch mixed together to make one interesting read. Really excited to see where the next one goes with the cause and effect.

With listening to all of the other authors in the category, I fell right in with the story line and made it all the way thru the book. It’s a good start to the story with a few predictable parts. Kevin did a hell of a job as usual. Looking forward to following up with book 2 to see how the story goes. Solid 4 stars for sure.

After the author gave me this copy I bought book 1 and listened to it to familiarize myself with the story line. Book 1 was slow to get going and was decent, I stuck it out and rolled in to book 2. This book started off slow with a narrator thats board line acceptable. Then it got good for the last 4 hours of the book. I just checked for book 3 and its not available yet. I would say overall it was worth the time to listen to it and I would have been fine spending credits on this series. Some of the things that annoyed me was the narrator spelling out HMMWV instead of saying humvee. Little things like that and not being familiar with military terms was obvious. I think the author did a better job of keeping everything accurate and the lingo right but the narrator dropped the ball on his homework. I look forward to the next one and see how it turns out.

Through prudent planning, Texas protected its power grid from the impact of the devastating electromagnetic pulse attack, but was it enough? The new nation is but an island surrounded by chaos and devastation. Food is running out for its nearly 30 million citizens while millions of refugees press against the border fencing erected to keep them out. The pressure is on and an unexpected catalyst is about to create havoc for all Texans, including the Armstrong Ranch.

I’m normally a huge bobby fan but this book was disappointingly short and I’m not sure it was worth the credit. At 6 hours it didn’t take long to finish the book. The book continues where the previous books left off. It flows decent and keeps moving with twists and turns you have come to expect from bobby. There were multiple errors in the book when referencing past details about equipment and technical errors in the description of items. I do not think bobby realizes the distance between these texas towns when writing the book. But overall it was a solid enjoyable book... anyone want to bet sook dies in the start of the next book or is it Duncan?

American political leaders failed to heed the warnings as two bullies of the world unite. North Korea and Iran - the Axis of Evil - bring the battle to American soil. Most of the country is without power, and the new president must decide whether to retaliate and risk escalation of hostilities or focus on recovery to minimize loss of life. Through careful, prudent planning and protection of their power grid, the state of Texas emerged relatively unscathed from the EMP attack. But what now?

Now, with no family and free from the military's command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward revenge.

For decades, American administrations have forced our military to be neutered in many respects - hampered by restrained rules of engagement, passed in strength by Russia and China, and tested by rogue nations like North Korea and Iran. As a result, nuclear Armageddon hangs over us like a mighty sword. Military analysts agree that the United States can't start World War III. Why? We might lose. Sabers are rattling, and the war of words escalate between America and her enemies....

Bobby did a great job mixing a family in texas, the deep state in Washington, the military and North Korea.

This was a good read and the characters develop in a smooth easy read. I like how the book took on different tangents and plots going all in the same direction.

It was a nice break from the normal end of the world books.

Well worth the credit

Lauren Russell, her family, and the community of Trout Run Valley had been blessed with a workable blueprint for overcoming nearly insurmountable odds - odds that had been surmounted against them, and others like them, since the blackout, subsequent decline of society, and the world's devolution. The aftermath of the most recent onslaught, a ruthless attack by a menacing enemy, had left them reeling in its wake, leaving a once-sustainable food supply damaged beyond repair and two of their own senselessly murdered.
