Publisher's Summary

Chaos is about to erupt.

During the aftermath of a massive solar flare that has plunged the country into the Dark Ages, Abram and Nick must prepare the compound against the growing bandit threat. But will earlier decisions sink their chances of survival and put those they love at risk of being annihilated?

A brewing danger is closing in.

As if the bandit threat wasn’t bad enough, an erratic stranger is closing in on Abram’s compound. But something is lurking beneath the surface of this man, who sees the collapse of society as the greatest opportunity of his life. Will the stranger swoop in at Abram and Nick’s weakest moment and seize control of the compound, or will he play with his prey first?

A few choices away from destruction.

As they find their days numbered, Abram, Nick, and the rest of the community at the compound are faced with crucial decisions that could help them survive the chaos - or send them to their eventual demise. In this new world, choices matter more than ever and make the difference between life and death.

Will they make the right choices?

Instant Chaos is book 2 in the EMP Crisis Series, a post-apocalyptic survival thriller series about regular people struggling to survive after a solar EMP.

Just too short...

I liked the first book and this but a full credit for each seems crazy. As is the style in this genre it’s a split up series and is yet to be continued. The first two combined would make a perfectly sized book... and feel like I’d had value for my money. Very interesting plot and only a few mis-steps...

Very basic and no real build up for this story

I honestly think someone that has no real experience or did not do their research wrote this book. Its something to listen to so I will finish it but it is a predictable story line. The world ends as we know, prepper family goes to bug out location, bad people attack, they fight them off, so on and so on.

Did it again!

Just don’t start one of these books if you have an early morning shift. There’s no way to get any sleep once one is started.

Gage

It is not bad it is not good gives a lot of detail but there needs to be more excitement like to the end when Gary didn’t pick up the candy bar he knew he would get busted in the head not necessary more blood and guts but needs more excitement

Fantastic series!

This series is filled with everything you would expect in a post apocalyptic series PLUS family, friendship, values and coming together to fight against all that is evil. The characters, and there are quite a few, are realistic and people you love or love to hate! Narrator, Kevin Pierce brings them all to life in the Audible book! The authors also share their knowledge of survival tips here and there. Highly recommend this series. I am off the read/listen to book 3 now.

Can't write believable Drama

The author writes interesting characters but all their problems could be solved with common sense.

Too short, had guys too stupid

Generally good story, but the bad guys could only have become suddenly intent on committing suicide. And may own the place and can rule like a tyrant of us wishes of he can use the input of other skilled people to learn how to survive. He is slowly figuring it out.

Kevin Pearce knocks it out of the park

as Kevin always does. The story was pretty good. Two changes that would have greatly improved the read. First, very little details on Preps, which would be useful as an example. Second, books 1 and 2 should have been combined. that is the primary reason I will not be purchasing book 3. Overall, good story.

Very good listen

I enjoyed the book a lot. It was I found a bit slow in places however. There was high drama in the final climactic battle which was excellent.
