The strongest emotion of man is fear, and...fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all. Could you face fear head-on? This fast-paced post-apocalyptic dystopian fiction series from author Bobby Akart has been hailed as a masterpiece of EMP survival fiction. Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained, as the Blackout series continues with Shiloh Ranch. After a perilous journey replete with highs and lows around every turn, the Rymans reach their destination only to face guns pointing at them from all directions. Did they make a mistake?

From the best-selling author of the Graham's Resolution series comes book two in the Surrender the Sun series. Conditions in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, are proving unsustainable in the year 2030. The mini ice age, caused by the Maunder Minimum effects, are brutal at best, and life systems are limited and failing fast. Bishop seeks a safe haven for his new family and the only answer leads him back to his nightmares. Leaving the comfort of their luxury hotel is their only answer, but the journey may prove more perilous than their current existence.

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.

this book was unfortunately disappointing especially because I've come to expect great books from this author. also the voice performer is too old for the main characters.
I don't recommend this book.
try any of the author's other books.
