Publisher's Summary

What would you do if you lost power, water, and the protection of law enforcement, all in an instant - and you knew it was never coming back? How would you and your loved ones endure? 

The world is destroyed in a devastating nuclear attack. Now, Chuck and his family must learn to survive in a harsh new dystopia in Fairbanks, Alaska. 

Retired Marine and survivalist Chuck Nagy, his brilliant and brave wife, Madison, and his remarkable children are thrown from the modern world into a dystopian wasteland in the span of a few heartbeats. Now, it’s up to Chuck to build a new life in a post-apocalyptic world that becomes more dangerous every day.  

This is an omnibus edition of the three titles in Craig Martelle's End Times Alaska series.  

Endure:

Fairbanks, Alaska, is destroyed in a devastating nuclear attack. Now, Chuck Nagy and his family must learn to survive in a harsh new dystopia. What would you do if you lost power, water, and the protection of law enforcement all in an instant - and what if you knew it was never coming back? How would you and your loved ones endure?

Run:

After enduring the holocaust that destroyed Fairbanks, one family gathers the remaining survivors to build a new society. When they begin to thrive, the faceless enemy returns, destroying their new community. They flee for their lives, driving dog teams across 300 miles of frozen Alaskan wilderness. With babies, children, and almost no food, who will get to them first - the Russians or the winter cold?

Return:

The war is over, the treaties signed, and Chuck, Madison, and their community of survivors return to Alaska with the same mission they’ve always had - to live life to the fullest in a new world of their own making. But that means they must confront the Russian invaders yet again as the enemy tries to establish its own settlement, and the Nagys’ world turns upside down once again - maybe for the final time.

Just barely OK

I got the first three books in the series all at one time from Audible. Brook one was pretty goodbye. Book 2 not as good and far less believable. And books 3 was dumb as shit, The politics that set up the story for books 3 was just plain stupid. Do yourself a favor and pick something else.

At first it was ok but then...

It took a really weird turn and became the most unlikely story I could've ever heard. And someone please tell me why every single movie and book has to throw at least one mention of drugs in it. As someone who is from Colorado I could not be more sick and tired of hearing about weed! It started off ok but became the most ridiculous unbelievable story! To bad because I'm so sick of the same old EMP books

Decent dystopian fiction based in Alaska.

A refreshing take on a dystopian storyline that leans toward empathy and humanity instead of blood, gore, wanton violence & self preservation. For this I am thankful.

Good potential, but just doesn't deliver

I'm not sure if this was SUPPOSED to sound like someone was reading from a diary, or not. But that's pretty much what it sounds like. Very little 'performance' by the narrator, and when he does try to insert some emotion, it stands out as awkward and forced. That aside, the story is soooooo disappointing. Obviously I have not personally been through an apocalypse, but there is enough general knowledge easily at hand and detailed probabilities with just a little research to have made this story much more believable. I wanted to slap the main characters several times - what are you thinking?? Most of this book seemed more like a 'this is the way to eat healthy and think liberally' than a survival story. I mean, come on - who in an end-of-the-world situation would turn up their noses at ANY canned goods, simple because it's "processed food" and "not good for us"? Even if you don't end up eating it, you'd want it in the back cabinet for emergencies, right? I wish I hadn't paid for this title - really disappointing.

Very good book.

I have listened to a lot of Apocalypse Style books. A lot of authors fall short because they just don't do enough research on what their characters should be able to do. In my opinion this was a well-thought-out and believable set of scenarios and was a pleasure to listen to.

I Have "Read" This Series Four Times (So Far)

Well written, Nice character development, Nice survival skills, and situational reactions from the characters. Wrapped up too quickly in the storyline and is quasi questionable BUT still enjoyable. You really get a sense of Alaska and all of its glory. Chris Abernathy is one of my top 10 narrators. He speaks at a nice rate and emotes just enough. Highly recommend.

I had such high expectations

I wanted to really like this book, I have a great interest in “dooms day scenarios” and I love Alaska. BUT this book was lacking in so many ways!!! The worst is the lack of research!!! Too few moose, bears and guns. In my neck of the woods, everyone has a handgun strapped on almost 24/7, you see moose daily and bears frequently but NOT in the dead of winter. The author calls a male Caribou a “buck” instead of a “bull” and a female caribou a “doe” instead of a “cow”. This occurs in several locations in the story. A Marine and his “asthma”!! :-( As a 23 year veteran I just couldn’t buy the storyline of the lead character have such severe asthma, which almost always is grounds for disqualification to enlistment/commissioning. Yeah you sometimes can get a waiver but with as bad as “Chuck” had it, it would require a large dose of dishonesty and lack of integrity as one would knowingly come in unable to fulfill their duties. Last but definitely not least, Russian military vs the Alaskans??? You don’t “nuke” terrain you plan to keep, you don’t start a war with a thousand fronts (homesteads & villages) and you never, NEVER EVER poke a grizzly while it’s sleeping!!!!
