Publisher's Summary

His survival rules kept them alive when the power went out.

Five days ago, Tyler and two strangers battled roving gangs and survived a perilous journey home to Montana after an electromagnetic pulse crippled the country. His brother, Corey fought off inmates to save the community of Whitefish from being destroyed. Now, as the town falls apart in the aftermath, the survivors must deal with conflict, looters, and defend their family from local danger.

How far would you go to protect those you love?

Trouble is brewing in the small mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, as old rivals seek vengeance, and Mayor Hudgens struggles to maintain order. With the riots and town fires raging out-of-control, Andy Ford must reunite his family if they want to stay alive. But how, when a tide of unpredictable violence, and a familiar face from the past threatens to keep them apart?

Rules are one thing, surviving the end of the world is another.

With the power grid down, and the collapse of government, loyalties will be tested and the Ford’s rules might not be enough to hold the town together. Who is the mysterious, Jude Lawson? Can Nate and Erika survive the unimaginable? And how will the decisions of the few affect the survival of many?

Rules of Conflict is Book Two in Survival Rules, a post-apocalyptic EMP thriller series following the Ford family and their community as they fight to survive after an EMP destroys the nation’s power grid.

Another Great Prepper Book!

I have a love for books about how when society breaks down good people will survive and overcome. It won't be easy and there will be trials along the way but good will overcome. This book is another great addition to the genre. The narrator does a great job with the characters and keeps you interested.

Who do you trust


Do you rely on the government and people to do the fright thing? How far will someone go to get what they want? Are the people you know going to turn their back on you for their benefit? How will people get revenge? This great narrated book puts good law abiding people into these trials. Who will be saved and who will not be saved.

Fun, fast-paced adventure

I love a good post-apocalyptic survival series, particularly when it has a unique flavor. The Survival Rules Series stands out as a character-driven story in a post-apocalyptic setting. Rules of Conflict is the second in this series about a fractured family (father and two sons) forced to reunite after the world goes dark. Ironically, it was the father's fear of such an event -- and the brutal and abusive training he forced upon his sons to ensure they would be prepared -- that caused the fracture in the first place. The book has many of the typical elements of the genre, such as escaped criminals, hysterical (and unprepared) citizens, crashing planes, and the like. However, the characters' relationships remain the focus, as they attempt to navigate the new world with which they are suddenly faced.

The author developed the characters well and allows them to unfold naturally instead of telling the reader who they are or forcing their personalities through awkward dialogue. Like some other reviewers, I struggled to find anything remotely likeable about the main female character, particularly in the first book of the series, but she begins to come around in this book and becomes much more tolerable. As a character-focused tale, I understand why she is portrayed in this manner, and I see that she, like the others, grows and develops throughout the series. Otherwise, the author did a commendable job creating multi-faceted characters with clear and logical motivations. Even the deeply-flawed father has redeeming qualities.

Miles Meili does a very good job with the narration. My only criticism is that his voice for the younger brother seemed too young -- almost like a teenager -- when, in fact, he is in his mid 20's. But with so many male characters in the story, I understand that he needed to differentiate them in some way. Otherwise, the narration was on point.

I really enjoyed this book, and I finished it in only a few days. Although I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review, I purchased the first book of the series with my own credit. I enjoyed the first one enough to immediately start listening to this one, and I will purchase the third book, as well. I recommend the series if you enjoy apocalyptic fantasy, character fiction, action, and adventure.

the struggle to survive continues

Rules of Conflict, the 2nd book in the Survival Rules series, picks up shortly after the end of Rules of Survival, and continues to follow the struggles of Tyler Ford, his friends, family, and the people Whitefish, Montana. This is a solid post apocalyptic thriller and features a solid cast of characters (no spoilers but some of them you'll absolutely love to hate), a lot of fast paced action, and multiple interconnected intriguing storylines (one of which was surprisingly dark). And the ending definitely left me wondering about what comes next.

irritating

The woman and children in this book are not to smart and bullheaded for no reason. I'm done after this book no more.

Ok

The first of this series I wanted to so slap the girl. This book you are like “just kill them all off already.’ For men trained in survival they are kinda stupid. The women, I just shake my head. To much going on. Three side stories and the MC wandering around looking for someone to help him. I’ll only get the next in this series when there is nothing else to read.

Female characters are too idiotic.

Story quickly becomes annoying because the female characters are so incredibly obstructive, angry and ungrateful. I thought that at some point the female counterpart to the hero would wise up and help. She doesn’t even learn after she has to kill someone. Won’t be buying anymore in this series. Smart is fun stupid is not.

Great Idea. Only one character likeable.

I read the first one, I tryed the second to see if my view changed. It did not. Struggled to like any of the characters. Its a great Idea, and I had hoped for better, but Im sadly done with this series.
