Publisher's Summary

This title includes two books and is the complete Time Is Running Out series

Spectre Island: A satirical, often humorous, but practical look at how three groups of people will end up trying to survive the apocalypse when stuck on a sinking island.

The setting for the event is an apocalyptic author, listeners get together, prepper camp out which is occurring in Alabama when a geomagnetic storm triggers a chaotic pole shift like event causing earthquakes and flooding. The electrical grid has gone down and the unexpected slip of Earth’s Tectonic plates grinding together causes the New Madrid Fault line in Tennessee to tear itself apart and alter America’s continental shape and coastlines forever. The dystopian world of an old Spanish moss-covered movie set attraction not far from a small southern town becomes the base of operations for the survivors. Everyone one is forced to choose for themselves their own path when it comes to how to compete for survival in this newly evolving post-apocalyptic world.

The small-town locals, the event campers and the parks day visitors must all compete with bared teeth for limited resources and food before time runs out and starvation takes its deadly toll. A study in preparedness psychology and strategies as different minded or focused groups of people get their vehicles stranded on the island after the causeway leading to the mythical town of Spectre floods. The politically connected landowner is overwhelmed with the refugees and wants the National Guard to come take them away to FEMA camps, but the surviving preppers say no and are willing to fight!

A fun, technothriller that will test your resolve, make you question your readiness and resiliency to societal breakdown, space weather climatic solar, and geophysical or geographic disasters impacting earth!

Apocalyptic Apothecary: The Earth’s magnetic poles have shifted; the electrical grid is down and society has collapsed. Survivors struggle daily to cope, as pestilence and plague take their toll. Famine and strife run amuck in the burning cities. Hospitals are abandoned. A chance discovery made while scavenging in the old attic of an herbalist cache of books, gives Zack the added herbal knowledge he needs to fight the rampant diseases occurring in his survivalist community. Forgotten medical knowledge from the Civil War era offers healing for a small group trying to reconstruct society after the collapse.

Wasted a credit

The idea behind this story was great and being that it’s one I’ve never heard I jumped on it. Wish I wouldn’t have. I could see this being a great book for the older (60+) crowd but it just wasn’t good for me. So much skipping past crucial details and too much time spent on irrelevant details. The narrator was not good. He has a good voice but it sounded like most paragraphs were written in run on sentences. I have over 500 titles in my library, most in this genre, so I wanted this to be good because my pickings are slim now but it just wasn’t for me.

Apocalypse apothecary

Interesting read but presented in very condensed format. Pronunciations of medical and microbiological term are no where close to common use. For gosh sake call a physician friend.

Yak yak yak

So many extra words!! Just tell a story. Like standing in a public place and hearing boring conversation. I can’t even get an exchange for this.

Struggled.

Struggled to finish. Not sure if it was the bad narration or the lack of story. in fact I just can't keep listening. Bailing halfway.

Goes nowhere story

i thought this book was going to be a bit "prepper" orientated but my god a few hours in i felt like i was in survival class , and a pretty dull one at that. the "pole shift" barely features but whether a battery is 6 volt or 12 volt sure did.
sorry but even a book aimed at imparting knowledge can be more exciting and enfertaining than this. About the biggest danger that faced the antagonists was whether they had bartered a decent trade and nothing at all about the actual event in the books title. This book ould just as easily been called "left shaking in their boots : slight flood"
really got dull.
