Publisher's Summary

From the beginning, Emma was always looking for modern ways to become self-sufficient. Following the signs of a faltering economy and a nagging in her spirit to return to her family farm, Emma begins rebuilding a life independent from the grid and away from her high-stress corporate job.

Is it any wonder that when a localized electromagnetic pulse is detonated over the New Madrid fault line and the grid is taken down that Emma immediately goes into action? Well, at least until Senator Varga and her personal army show up at Emma's door. That is one curveball that Emma was not expecting.

Calling her fellow prepper chicks into action, follow along as a modern-day underground railroad is formed, a long-forgotten way of life is pulled back into action, and they all adjust to a world without rule of law.

Story great, narrator is horrible and needs to be replaced

The narrator ruined the book. She couldn't even read a smooth sentence. She stumbled over ordinary words and mispronounced many words, ruining the story flow. If the story hadn't been so good, I would have given up on this one. Let's hope they do not use her again on future books. Someone like Davina Porter would have been perfect.

Bad performance.

The reader really destroys the dialogue in this book. There is some good content but is overall very boring. A lot of this may be due to the reader.

Great story but what a terrible ending!

I was riveted to the story the entire time only to be extremely disappointed at the ending. I can only hope the next book has a better ending!

Too much. All over the place

The prepper tips should be in a prologue. Too much rape and molestation. Monologue about being prepared seemed out of place and too long. Glad to read a prepper novel by a woman.

Interesting story, but new editor(s) and narrator needed.

The book was educational and thought provoking. The author has and refreshing point of view that we should help each other after a horrible event -compared to the male writers in the same genre. However, between the narrator, the redundancy of words and descriptions, and the quantity of characters, I had to force myself to keep listening. For the author... If you explain something once with one character don't do it again with another. Consider being less wordy, not using the same word two or three times in a sentence. I am not sure I would spend more money to continue listening to the series.

great story for people who like graphic rape.

overall it's a decent story. I doubt they'll be a second one anytime soon. The author a female really enjoyed giving graphic depictions of a female being raped which I thought was not necessary. it truly seems like she got pleasure out of writing about the rape scenes it was kind of disgusting and sick. and the lady who narrated it seems to somewhat enjoy reading it also.
