Publisher's Summary

The fabric of American society has been torn asunder by an EMP attack on the United States. The enormity of what has happened is sinking in to the population. No area of the country has been spared. From the big cities to the rural countryside, all have been impacted.

Loved ones are stranded far from home, their suffering families not knowing their fate. Food is in short supply, transportation has come to a halt, and a short trip across the county can become deadly. Law and order has fallen by the wayside.

Desperation is setting in, and desperate people will do desperate things. The struggles and the fight to survive is real. The physical, mental, and emotional scars will last a lifetime.

The time is now for individuals and communities to come together in order to survive. But will they? Will you? Those that survive will never be the same.

rediculous midwest girl fail at a southern accent

the story is worth listening to, just be prepared that you will have to listen to 2 horrible narrators read it to you in horrible southern accents. You will also have to listen to a different prayer about every other page as well.

Great story / Hard to listen

My wife and I have listened to this genre of fiction novels for the past three years on audible while we travel. Most are difficult to listen due to the graphic language, so it was refreshing to hear/read from an author that did not believe that sort of foul language was necessary.

But... the fake southern accent from the narration became too hard to listen. We started laughing so much the story became insignificant. Why the author would use that makes no sense. As much as we enjoyed the story we would not purchase another if the narration were done by the same readers.

Just being honest, thank you.

What an adventure, great story. Bad narration

The narration over this series has been terrible the whole ride with extremely poor southern accents. Don't let that take away from the story, it is very well written and had a great plot. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in apocalyptic books.

THE best series I've read in a long time.

I loved this book just as much, if not more, than I did the other 2 before it. I'm really hoping theres another book after this to continue on with their story! it felt so real & believable. and definitely got me thinking about what we would do if something like that happened here... I pray it won't, but if it does, then I pray that it won't happen for a long time so we can get prepared! sad bc in the world we live in now, this happening is very possible.

dont skip this book & this series as a whole - you wont be able to stop listening!

40+ chapters of being stymied.

Then the story started. Lies, deceit, maniacal tendencies, sloth, apathy with a good helping of ignorance thrown in for good measure.... and all under one roof. 40 or so chapters were essentially tied up in this story line alone. It felt much more like a soap opera akin to the days of the late '70's/early '80's than a good dystopian weave.

Then finally the story got back on solid ground. Ugh, much beloved characters stuck in drug out threats the likes of which is very rare in any written prose. Be it historical, biographical or good fiction, I can't remember ever experiencing such anywhere else at any time in my life.

Still, I didn't "put the book down". Call me me sadomasochistic for the majority of those early chapters. 🤔

The love of the characters alone stoked a large part of my interest & got me through.

A must read for Christian preppers

The book Is well thought out and fun to listen to. It is not for young listeners. No profanity is used but the story is extremely violent. Thanks

Fan since the beginning.

while I have always appreciated the skill of good narrators, I especially like Mr. Motes' technique of using each chapter to provide the various characters' perspectives!
