Retired Marine and survivalist Chuck Nagy, his brilliant and brave wife, Madison, and his remarkable children are thrown from the modern world into a dystopian wasteland in the span of a few heartbeats. Now, it’s up to Chuck to build a new life in a post-apocalyptic world that becomes more dangerous every day. This is an omnibus edition of the three titles in Craig Martelle's End Times Alaska series.

A refreshing take on a dystopian storyline that leans toward empathy and humanity instead of blood, gore, wanton violence & self preservation. For this I am thankful.

This review is based on the audio version. The book is laden with information. As such it requires more than a passive listen to properly garner all the information within. Otherwise, you will feel the need to rewind/skip back on various pertinent factoids.

Book 2 of the series American Apocalypse continues the heroic struggles of an unlikely band of survivors in Southern Oregon. Joe Harp, the leader, was an overweight auto mechanic without any special survival skills. He had never been in the military but did know how to hunt, fish, and camp. He also had some notes his Grandma left him plus some survival books and supplies his Grandpa left him in an old cabin in the woods. Cobie Simms worked as a clerk at an outdoors store. She was working hard to survive before the SHTF while raising her daughter alone. Joe and Cobie team up to fight the evil around them and make life better for those in their small group.

Recommended dystopian fiction for the lessons contained within if nothing else. From the stance of "A damsel in distress" makes one root for the lead character.
