Publisher's Summary

After a brutal attack on their neighborhood, Kate McCarthy’s group struggles to cope with the loss of several members. The military promises to abolish lawlessness, but if that includes confiscating all firearms, the cure may be worse than the disease. Kate reaches out for help from a nearby friend and learns of yet another wave of cyber-attacks. The next strike threatens to finish off the nation which is still reeling from the previous assaults. The federal government and society at large are hanging on by a thread. Like a plague of locusts, the coming round of computer viruses will destroy the last vestige of civility and order, leaving nothing but chaos and death in their wake. Kate and her group are determined not to give up, but they have a tough road ahead. Survival is by no means guaranteed.

As with all works by Mark Goodwin, this book contains no profanity and no embarrassing sex scenes. However, if you're offended by conservative principles and references to Scripture, this book might not be for you.

A GOOD SERIES AND GREAT NARRATOR

Mr. Goodwin spins a very good story of cyber crisis that is very real and highly possible. The plot is developed in the first of the three books, but trails off to be more about the resulting lifestyle and politics than the catalyst for the crisis in books two and three.

Although the series kept me listening, I felt that there were parts of the storyline that needed more depth ... more detail. still, there are some very good lessons and tips for any reader.

Characters are loveable ... or despicable ... and brought to life by the very talented Stacy Glemboski. Within the first ten minutes of book one, I forgot that I was listening to a female reading Male dialogue and just heard the conversation of men and women. Ms. Glemboski gives these characters, and the storyline, life.

Mr. Goodwin's use of Scripture as the opening for every chapter shows the reader the guidance and wisdom available to us from the greatest of books and indicated to me Mr. Goodwin's depth of faith.

Another great one by Mark Goodwin

I have purchased all of Mark Goodwin’s post apocalyptic books. This series is just as good as the rest. If you haven’t read all his other books I would strongly recommend them. Mark Goodwin does a good job of telling a potential future in his novels without all the cussing and unnecessary language. He does it in such a way that the picture of what may come is vivid to the readers. Keep up the good work! Glemboski does an amazing job as well!

GREAT SERIES!

Loved this! This narrator is wonderful @ different voices, & she's a woman! I'm used to the GREAT narrator, Kevin Pearce. A woman, especially, will enjoy this, as it shows just how strong a woman can be if she has no other choice. I thoroughly enjoyed this series about a different & very possible apocalypse, a cyber attack. Very good story line, & lots of action, & a bit of romance.

3 Stars - So So

I've listened to a number of Goodwin's books and like the overall premise of them all and enjoy stories of societal collapse in general which is why I made myself finish this series.

Having said that, his storytelling is sub-par and his attempt to make this a Christian witness fails. I'm a Christian too, but being overly pious is a huge turn-off for most folks, and Goodwin's stories are sappy, unrealistically "clean" and generally unrealistic overall.

The heroine is a nerdy computer girl but she somehow is also a tactical genius that comes up with battle plans that active duty and retired soldiers failed to see. That and everyone it seems eventually gets shot, but the heroine (that's not a spoiler alert - if she got shot up the story would be over). She's overly soft in certain places in the plot, but a cold-stone killer later, then reverts back to being queasy about killing bad guys again. Her boyfriend/husband always takes a backseat to her and does what she tells him to do, the other men in the group are emotional and thus poor leaders, but the nerdy computer girl with zero tactical experience always rises to the moment. Add to that the murderous rapists never say anything worse than "heck" and it just seems more like Scooby Doo and the gang foiling the bad guy's plot. (A Christian could write a realistic story without making cursing and alcohol usage gratuitous and have it still be Christian. It's self-righteous and dense to think otherwise.)
