Publisher's summary

Adapt or die. There is no other choice.

Black and white no longer exist in a world swirling with shades of gray. To survive the post-apocalyptic nightmare they face, Josh Standing must find a way to stitch his frayed family back together. But with the lives of his wife and kids on the line, Josh must finally face the truth of this new reality - he may not be able to save everyone.

The professor is another story. The man’s only concern is continuing his research, regardless of the cost to those protecting him. However, keeping the intelligent and irritating man alive is vital to the future because he holds the key to a cure that just might counter the dark matter madness.

Maxine Standing won’t let anything come between her and the tiny hope offered for humanity’s brighter future. Sometimes compromise is crucial when civilization collapses, and Maxine will do whatever it takes to follow her husband’s example - even if it means facing a tyrant.

But dark matter isn’t the only hurricane bearing down on the coast as the Standings pursue shelter from the Harbormaster’s crazed reach. Now they have one shot at restoring order to ensure a new tomorrow.

And before the sun rises, someone will make the greatest sacrifice.

This novel contains violence.

Can the Standings Survive the Supernova's Effects?

The concluding book of the ‘Supernova EMP’ series pits the Standing family against the self-appointed Harbormaster/President/King of North America, Gabriel. Because Gabe really loves the sound of his own voice, he talks long enough to give the Standings time to escape. Josh, and his fellow escapees, flee on the ocean, with Gabe in hot pursuit.

I had hoped the Gabe storyline would meet its demise in the first chapter of the book. Alas, his supervillain-y monologues continue throughout. I find the character to be extremely cliche. I assume a lot of Gabe's behavior is being enhanced by the supernova, but, boy, he is annoying.

The sections showing Josh, along with his family and the others, outrunning the Harbormen are my favorite parts. I like the ingenuity they employ in their efforts against their pursuers. I'd have liked the scenes showing the group's survival tactics and plans for the future occupy more of the book.

There is a plot element introduced to the story at the 11th hour. This is an interesting development Hamilton could have explored further. As it is, it makes the ending feel a bit rushed.

Overall, the book delivers an action-packed, suspense-filled and terrifying look at what could happen in a near-Earth supernova event.

Matt Weight’s narration is good. He does a really great job at differentiating the character voices. It might just be me, but his cadence and oddly-placed word emphasis don’t seem to be how people naturally speak.

This audiobook was given to me for free, at my request, and this is my voluntary opinion of it.
