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.

Blast from the past!

Young Storm continues to hold the focus in this final volume as a “blast from the past” surfaces to throw everyone into a tailspin. Aside from the untimely appearance and revealed identity, this bearer of bad news has even more tyrannical plans up his sleeve. Cornered, Maxine must divulge the secret she’s been guarding for many years. Josh is not immune from this turmoil. He and Storm are front and center in this incident, both have important decisions to make. As the old saying goes, not everyone can be saved. Capture, rescue, and escape. Loyalty, love, and family. Unexpected twists and turns, filled with consequence and emotion. This story touches on all the right points. A great story and a hearty recommendation. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Final End

I came late to the party!

I received a free copy of 'Final End,' in exchange for an unbiased review of the book.

As noted, I came late to the party. This is my first experience with the Hamilton/Weight team's work.

Before giving a true review of the book, 'Final End,' I will need to spend the credits (gladly) and go back to learn the full story. I believe knowing the full history is important to give a decent review.

That being written, Hamilton writes a good descriptive story and Weight brings to life the nuances and variety of characters. I am sure after I catch up, I can give this book fives across the board.

Fantastic End

I received this book via a promo code and this is my voluntary review.
This is the final book in the Supernova EMP series and follows the surviving Standing family as they try to find safety following the attack on the family farm when the the Bernard Star Supernova and its EMP effects knocked out the power and turned most people on Earth into mind-altered crazies. Luckily Josh has found one of the few scientists left with the knowledge to help them counter most of the darker effects.. if they could get away from Maxine's psychotic Ex boyfriend and his Harbourmen to live long enough to test his theories. From storming castles, storm chases across the sea and carving out their own private island base of operations, Maxine, Tally, Storm and Josh have come to an unsteady understanding after the truth of Maxine's encounter of with the Harbourmaster was finally revealed in Book 2 & 3 caused so many problems. Ultimately our Standing family are left doing exactly that after all the twists and turns despite the loss of so many allies. Grace Hamilton has become one of my favorite authors and Matt Weight did a fantastic job with the narration.
