Publisher's Summary

Voted by Kindle Tips and Tricks fans as one of the 16 Great End of the World books!

Imagine that you wake one morning and everything you have come to know is gone. Your home and car, place of business, even loved ones, are all gone. How would you survive? 

On leave from the US Marine Corps, Jason Black considered himself fortunate the morning an unnatural wind devastated Charlotte, North Carolina. Despite concerns for a distant fiancé, Jason holes up with other survivors in the ruins of a warehouse. Among the survivors, Kelly “Rocky” Cordova is an attractive, 30-something, single mother, determined to return to her Utah family. With diminishing resources, the survivors send Jason and Rocky in search of civilization and the cause of the mysterious storm. Their dangerous trek leads across a demolished countryside and into perilous encounters with other survivors. Scrounging daily for food, water, and shelter, they attempt to survive in a world where necessities are luxuries and conflicts might lead to understanding, romance, or death. 

A suspenseful tale of love, survival, and the power of the human spirit to overcome Devastation.

Devastatingly Awesome

Having read Devastation a few years ago I came to appreciate what a brilliant store teller Kevin J. McArthur is. I quickly bought his other works. I like to tur pages even when in this case I was turning them quickly. When I found that Devastation was available in audio through Audible I downloaded it. What a great job Stephanie Fritz did with the narration. I caught much more than I did reading it which is unusual. I do have a complaint though...I found myself spending more money on gasoline and put excessive miles on my care driving around the neighborhood listening to the tale in my car!

Good story but something was wrong

I do not know if it was the editing or the narrator but so many of the conversations between the character had a long pause between characters when they spoke to each other. Also, some of the responses were odd and out of context. Real people do not talk like that. This issue actually got a little better after about 10 hours or so but it made the first half painful and frustrating.

it started out really good

it started out really good but then got into feelings than survivalist stuff. then half way thru the book there was a lot of references to God. the last chapter was all about God . not for me but maybe it will work for someone else.
