Publisher's Summary

The first wave of computer malware, known as the Locust Virus, destroyed the American financial system. But the worst is yet to come!

Kate has managed to survive a massive cyber attack that annihilated the US banking system. The societal collapse that followed in the wake of the attack has already claimed the lives of millions, including members of Kate’s own family.

The government has instituted a temporary solution, but another wave of computer viruses has just been found. This time, the malware is targeting America’s power grid. To make matters worse, Kate inadvertently killed the leader of a violent local gang, and there’s a price on her head. Trouble and peril await her at every turn. Plunged into a world ruled by chaos and destruction, her chances of survival aren’t good.

As with all works by Mark Goodwin, this book contains no profanity and no embarrassing sex scenes. However, if you're offended by conservative principles and references to Scripture, this book might not be for you.

Another great book

Most prepper books leave me freaked out. Not Mark’s. I enjoy how he ties in biblical teachings with preparedness skills.

Getting better

Mark’s writing style and skills have improved over his many books. While the technical details have some gaps the overall story is enjoyable. I think Stacey Glemboski does a very good job with the characters.

Wonderful book 2 in Cyber Armageddon series...

Always love the family dynamics, educational components, inspiration, spiritual quotes and thought provoking in all of Author Goodwins books.
Lots of emotion in book 2, but in this situation there would be a lot of emotional trails and tribulations. Looking forward to book 3 in the series...

This was an exciting book to listen to. So much truth that is going to probably happen. Glad for the prepper information.

Good book

This book has less prepper tips than most of Mark’s books but it’s still a good story and will make you stop and think.

No safe place

Shelter-in-place, bug out or bug in Mark's developing story indicates there may be no safe place. When the grid goes down or the economy collapses no amount of prepping can prepare everyone to survive. Yet many, like myself, may have an optimistic view of their own survival. That my friend is the human nature, or spirit. Then along comes the apocalypse, with it a new reality as in this series it can smack you in the face with unplanned outcomes.
I guess that's where the saying adapt, persevere and overcome comes into play. Mark always provides the reader with a dose of that new reality.
I look forward to book number 3 because it will answer the question what will become of the survivors.

Lack of Research

This guy from my perspective has no military experience. How he portrays the main antagonist in this book is quite unrealistic. Even if Dean had not seen combat, though highly unlikely, I have never met anyone in the military that even slightly resembles that pompous prick. Also many of the things he could've brought to the community in the book were completely over looked. For instance had he trained the people of the community and they would've been much better off against the gang in the last chapter. The point was brought up that they didn't have much ammo to train with, there is definitely a thing called dry-fire practice, the military has been using this for years to train when supplies are limited. Along with this it is completely illogical to think he would want to attack the community behind them when the gang was a much larger threat. One that should've been attacked not defended against. Over all it seems the author has no military experience and not much respect for them either. I really liked the scenario but this disrespect for the armed forces really made me dislike this book. Not to mention this guy seems to just have a serious love for AKs which as an AR also is off putting since the main female, Kate doesn't seem to understand their functions when attempting to explain their use to the community on the other side of the mountain.
