Publisher's Summary

Two years after the Pulse shut down the nation’s power grid, Darrick, his wife Tonya, and their autistic son Andy, show up on the doorstep of Darrick’s childhood home. Darrick must make peace with his older brother Jimmie and ailing father James, all the while reacquainting himself with the life of a homesteader. 

Meanwhile, a looming omen hovers over everything he holds dear. A huge murder of crows circles a large, well-equipped, and organized group of aggressive survivors that are about to discover the homestead and threaten everyone’s way of life. When a bad decision leads to the loss of a family member, everything changes, and Darrick must reanalyze and adapt himself to the situation. Mistrust and paranoia take hold as Darrick struggles with the blurred lines between friend and foe.

Top tier in genre

Great story. Gritty, realistic, great characters (too bad some of the good guys bit the dust). I will be listening to the rest of this series. I highly recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

A must read!

This was my first but definitely not my last L. Douglas Hogan book. His characters and storylines captured my attention right away. I look forward to reading his next book.

Loved it can’t wait for book 2

First book by Mr. Hogan that I have had the pleasure of listening to. Waiting for book 2 in the series, so I’ve started another of his series the Tyrant, and have not been disappointed.

Can’t wait to see what he brings to life next.

Hard to follow

The book was hard to follow. Not well divided. He need to use more chapters to divide the story

I have been spoiled by better books

I can't finish this book. I have listened back to back over 50 hours worth of post apocalyptic books before and can't seem to go through this one. The characters are boring and the plot feels like a script from the Cardashians. Sorry, this one is a no go from my point of view.

Great book!

This is a must read! I really enjoyed how Mr Hogan intertwined many different every day issues into this story. Showing how in the event of a SHT F situation we will not only have to deal with our normal everyday issues, but we'll also have to try and survive as well. Pick this up its a very good read.

Homestead

This was a very good start to a new apocolyptic series.I am looking forward to more. Kevin Pierce was the perfect narator. I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.
