Publisher's Summary

When the system fails, will you fight to survive? 

Sam Wade is on a trip to reconnect with his estranged daughter studying in Boston when the interconnected US infrastructure is crippled by an unknown attacker. As the Internet, communication networks, and power grid go down, the world is soon thrown into turmoil and danger. Faced with no other choice than to battle their way home through a country on the verge of collapse, Sam and his daughter will have to face more than a troubled past - the future is deadly.

December 2015 - The Ukraine experiences a devastating cyber attack on its power grid that leads to widespread power outages.

July 2016 - Hackers bombard the aviation sector with over 1,000 attacks per month and remotely control and paralyze a Jeep on the highway.

August 2017 - The Irish power grid, US energy companies, and a nuclear power plant are digitally assaulted, and the US government accuses Russia.

March, 2018 - Atlanta is hobbled for five days, a troubling precursor to a larger attack that would tear a hole in the infrastructure and bring the country to its knees.

Today - The internet, communication network, and power grid go down, and silence and darkness dominate the nation.

As We Fall is book 1 of a postapocalyptic survival thriller series. It's a pause-resisting story about human connection and fighting to survive when the grid goes down.

A good Airport read

This is not great literature but can be a good source of entertainment at an Airport or when traveling.

The Story is not original but for those who enjoy this genre it will be time well spent.

Great characters.

Sam is in Boston to bring his estranged daughter home because her mom is having surgery. He hasn't seen her in years and knows it's going to be tough, but what he didn't expect was for an attack to happen and the grid to go down. With little to no working vehicles, how is Sam going to travel a country gripped by fear.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this! I read a lot of PA fiction and it's hard to make a book stand out, but this author managed it. This book centers more on the characters journey than the PA event. I loved that it took a while for everyone to fully realise that yes, there has been an attack and yes, nothing will ever be the same again. Plus, even though Sam is a former Navy Seal, he isn't a prepper and isn't totally prepared for every eventuality! It just felt easier to believe. I also loved that Sam is able to act and do what ever's needed without overthinking things.

The characters were what I loved the most. We really get a sense of who they are. Sam is a tough, no nonsense guy. Sam's daughter, Anna, is angry with her dad but she also realises that he is the only way she will get home. Sam and Anna team up with some other characters, who were all well written and developed too, though not all of them were likable.... Lisa!! Gosh, she was so annoying and I felt for the others!! Lol. Also Annas' granfather!! I'm intrigued to know more about him but from what I saw, he is a controlling piece of ......!!

In all, this was a character driven post apocalyptic read, which I do enjoy!! It was fast paced and held my attention till the end. There were some cliche moments, like with the gang, but I kind of expect things like that from a PA book. When I finished it, I did want to jump into book 2 to see what happens so I do hope it comes to audio soon!

When I think of Kevin Pierce, I think of Post Apocalyptic fiction because it's what he excels in. He has read so many of the books like this that it's hard to come up with new things to say about him ;) Here he was clear and easy to listen to. He had plenty of tones and voices for the different characters and he even reads the female parts well. He is able to grab a person and immerse them in the world and is able to bring it to life.

As the world dies with a whimper

Sam wasn't planning on the end of the world, he was just going to pick up his estranged daughter at Harvard to take her home to see her sick mother. But as cyber attacks take down the countries infrastructure he must herd a group of people in denial across the country to a destination that might not be thrilled to have him there. The characters swept me up and I loved the narrator. I am looking forward to the next installment.

Not a good value.

following in line with other authors charging full cost for a book of just 6 hours. Seems like nowadays instead of a full book with the costs of one credit, authors now charge 1 full credit for half a book. Buyer beware.

as we fall

Great story line. Great action. A little too wordy in some parts. A few grammatical errors. All in all a good read. Look forward to next book.

Was Okay

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This review is for the audio copy of As We Fall: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller; Against All Odds, Book 1, by Jack Hunt and narrated by Kevin Pierce. This book was fair. The characters were believable and their development was consistent. The story line is as expected for this genre. Overall it was okay. I might get the sequel to see where it goes. But it wasn’t one of those stories where I couldn’t put it down and I am not dying to know what happens next. Kevin Pierce did an excellent narration of the story.

Another good book

Jack Hunt always creates a good story. Kevin Pierce always delivers a stellar performance. Put these two together and you are bound to have something good! I liked the story but I didn’t absolutely love it so much that I didn’t want to turn it off. I’m very interested in what’s to come and I hope we get more action &/or drama.
I felt the last chapter was a bit rushed. Can wait to see how Sam buts heads with his former father in law. I already hate the man and Sam will be a formidable person to bring him down to earth.

Strong characters

It's hard enough trying to build a relationship between father and daughter where one doesn't exist, but throw in an apocalyptic event and things become even more challenging.

Sam makes for an interesting character he's he's incredibly likeable he's done amazing things with his life and has wrist his life to save others yet his lack of presence in his daughter's life is harder to accept. I want to like him and for the most part I do but sometimes his lack of understanding about why Anna is standoffish is frustrating and make him less likeable.

The book is well written it's got a good flow to it, the dialogue is natural. The characters are well developed and feel real, the descriptions and the world building capture attention without being overly descriptive.

The narrator did a good job with the character voices and the overall flow of the delivery pace of the book. I enjoyed listening to it and I look forward to book two.

Excellent in parts, lacking in others...

The character and storyline development are very detailed and enjoyable to the reader/listener. The first half of the book is clear that the author really wanted the listener to be a part of the story. The second half or so, the story felt rushed. I felt the whole journey to CO should've doubled the length of the book with realistic encounters of a world of chaos. It could've been great, but unfortunately I was left disappointed and likely won't be purchasing the sequel.

It's common practice for modern apocalyptic fiction authors to start with a great story, build up the characters, then rush through to get the sequel or trilogy out in 6 months. This unfortunately can make a potentially amazing novel turn into average at best.

Kevin Pierce was an excellent choice as a narrator! I've enjoyed his work for a few years now and view him as "The Voice of the Apocalypse".

Breezed through it

Don't go in expectation amazing literature. It's mostly flash over substance, but that is okay sometimes. After reading more "difficult" books sometimes i need something a little lighter. A palette cleanse if you will.
