The United States has experienced its share of turmoil over the years. Although not particularly as war-torn or stricken with genocide and violent crime as other nations, over time, gun violence and terror attacks have become commonplace on American soil. Never before has the United States been subjected to widespread coordinated terrorist attacks, devastating enough to bring the entire nation to its knees. Until now.

The fresh combination of preparedness and (very mild) Jack Ryan type of book. Very nice! Story is captivating and not to much of the “gun blazing have the whole world in my backpack prepper” bs. So all in all I would recommend it and will get the next book

At first the meal thing seemed to not be connected to anything at all. And then when it all clicked together it was amazing how so many of the stories made sense and why they’re even in the gospels.

Good story. Just a bit condensed. Characters had their own personalities, not just names. Would be better if some characters had a developing plot in the book to get more connected with them. Some action. But the choices made by Sam didn’t seem like a SEAL would do.

Idk if I’ll go on to book 2. But would recommend it for a light post apocalyptic book

Teenager Amanda Castle was like a lot of people, posting pictures of her everyday life to a variety of social media sites. Not everyone who viewed her pictures was there to share in her experiences. One was there to steal her profile pictures. A terrorist in Frankfurt was desperate to please his leadership. He planned the perfect attack, one in which vulnerable people would be invited through social media to participate in a flash mob. There, the unwitting participants, thinking they were taking part in a random act of kindness, would find themselves engaged in a random act of terror.

Good book. Not a post apocalyptic tho. But the story is intriguing. Flows well. But the ending from the FBI point of view could of been described more in detail on how the event went down. That was the only disappointment in the book. Was built up so well and then just ended.

But overall all a good read!

Overall not bad. I’ve read worst post apocalyptic novels. It’s more on realistic side.

But no grit or emotion in the book or characters. Everything kinda fell into pieces flawlessly. Not impressed at all.

Great performance by Kevin Pierce. If it wasn’t for him I don’t think I would be able to finish the book. Not going to get the next book.

America is on the verge of a second civil war, and Ava must pull it together if she wants to survive.  Violent protest, widespread destruction, and politicians who insist on letting the disassociated vent their rage will bring America to her knees, threatening to decapitate the laws, principles, and values on which the country was founded. Ava refuses to give into fear, but she simply cannot survive on her own. She must deal with her crisis of faith and learn to trust other people, or she’ll never make it through the bloodiest period of America’s history.

The book isn’t gun blazing getting out of dodge. It’s slower one but still captivating. It would be a good book to start with if you are getting into post-apocalyptic genre. Very realistic and human. Definitely on the upper tier of novels in this genre.

Recommend.

The survivors have come to settle in the mountains of Wyoming, fighting day in and day out to establish a home for themselves in a near-empty world. Things are good at first; scavenging is a workable, short-term solution that seems to be providing all they need. But they know that it’s only a matter of time before the food runs out. They need to scramble to find a sustainable solution before the clock stops, and for a little handful of people up in the mountains, the odds don’t seem very favorable.

Second book usually makes or breaks the series. Not like the first book where it took me a while to get into it, this one draws you in instantly. Differences in characters are distinct and it feels like they each have there own story and the way they interact with each other, and not just a different name on the page. Very well done all in all.

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.

It began on New Year's Eve. The sickness came on suddenly, and spread quickly. The fear spread even faster. Within weeks, everything people counted on began to fail them. The electrical grid sputtered; law and government collapsed - and more than half of the world's population was decimated. Where there had been order, there was now chaos. And as the power of science and technology receded, magic rose up in its place. Some of it is good, like the witchcraft worked by Lana Bingham, practicing in the loft apartment she shares with her lover, Max.

Great overall book. Amazing writing style. Right away can see the author is a professional. Narration is easy to listen to. Story overall ran and evolved flawlessly. It has the post apocalyptic theme in it. But it’s on the lighter side. Plus I’m not a mystic fan so that part didn’t do anything for me.

If you like the post apocalypse type of books and you’re into the mystical genre. Than you would really enjoy this book.
