Publisher's Summary

Tom's a prepper, and with his three friends, they embark on a fly-in fishing trip to northern Canada to have a long, relaxing vacation. Things turn deadly when an EMP leaves them stranded and alone 1,000 miles away from civilization. Winter is coming, and they only brought enough supplies for two weeks.

In a hostile land, there's no room for mistakes or illness. One wrong step can prove to be as deadly as the wildlife that has no fear of humans, and that views them as more than a potential food source. Escape by boat or over land would be near impossible.

So much to do, so ill-equipped, and so little time. Follow the four friends in their journey of survival. Survival isn't just an option - It's life or death.

The Prepper always finds the hot, naked chick...

Interesting take on bugging out---or in, since they're already on a remote fishing cabin when the SHTF. Good detail on the main characters preps, logistics and survival knowledge. Also interesting interplay between characters without desperate, over the top drama. They all act like rational adults.

Stiff, slightly juvenile writing style. Kevin Pierce seems to have become the go-to reader for any and all prepper audiobooks!

And---I have to say---

SO SICK of these stories where Prepper just happens to find the smoking hot, slightly dumb naked chick. Riiiggggttt.... Also, at the end of the story said naked chick is pregnant. What woman would so forgetfully get pregnant in a TEOTWAWKI situation??? It illustrates her utter lack of caution and self-preservation in a newly dangerous world. Really getting tired of women portrayed as useless and clueless in prepper stories.

A great survivalist novel

A well written fascinating survival story set in an isolated fly-in camp in Northern Canada. When an EMP destroys the worlds electronics systems, Tom and his group of friends become stranded at the camp and the battle to survive begins. An interesting and surprisingly educational story that provides some fascinating survival tips, has action, romance, sorrow and great characterization. The characters and their actions are realistic and likeable, and the narration fits the action and personalities well. This story is scarily believable and makes you wonder how you would manage if you were in the same situation and how, or even if, the world would function with no power or electronics.

Good Short Post-Apocalyptic

I listened to this in one day. I enjoyed this book of survival of EMP/Post-Apocalyptic with no zombies. The characters were interesting, working to survive the winter as they were stranded. My only complaint was the ending not sure if there will be another one to follow. Will be checking his other books.

Good Survival "Short" Story making it Overpriced

The story was engaging and is nice shift from the SHTF story lines. I enjoyed it. My complaint is that at only 5 hours of audio, it is really a "Short" story, making it an Overpriced purchase.

stranded a thousand miles from anywhere

Northern Lights chronicles four friends on a Canadian fly-in fishing trip when an EMP hits and leaves them stranded a thousand miles from anywhere. Luckily, one of the group is a prepper and the others rely on his knowledge and wit to carry them through the coming winter. Great story with lots of good survival/prepping information. Kevin Pierce is awesome as usual.

Great book!

I loved the characters relations. With everything hitting the fan they still joked around, which is how it would probably be in reality. The story line was a very different take on surviving. I'd love to see a book two!
As for Kevin Pierce, another wonderful narration. There are other great narrators, but Mr Pierce really draws you in to each character. His voice is kind of like an old favorite song, if that makes any sense. You just settle in and listen, knowing it's going to be good.

The Golden Rule of Safety

The golden rule of safety is that the fewer people around you, the safer you are. This holds true in Northern Lights.

Any fan of My Side of the Mountain or The Hatchet will enjoy this book as much as I did.

The fact that the main character would agree to go on a fishing trip with a certain person in their group (No Spoilers) almost cost the book a star from me but as the story progresses I feel that he needed this trip in order to heal.

His healing combined with the circumstances the group faces prepares him for what lies ahead. Surviving is one thing, surviving together is another.

I really enjoyed this post apoc book that doesn't rely on zombies or war or even violence for that matter. Well done.

Excellent story and narration

Would you listen to Northern Lights again? Why?

I'm not sure... Perhaps after a long period of time. But I RARELY listen to a title more than once...

What did you like best about this story?

Kevin Peirce did an amazing job at bringing the story to life, and the story itself was excellent

What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

He has the perfect voice for these in the woods, survival stories. He's also very experienced, as he has the tone and reflections come to life, bringing you into the story

Any additional comments?

I received this title in exchange for an honest review
