Publisher's Summary

In this instantly absorbing and thrilling series, best-selling author Chris Pike delivers another suspenseful and pulse-pounding adventure in the fourth installment of the EMP Survivor series.

Nico Bell has been working undercover in San Antonio for over a year, trying to infiltrate a dangerous gang, led by the mysterious Santiago. Desperate for a meeting with Santiago, Nico agrees to be a courier to pick up and deliver a package. It should have been easy, but easy isn't in Nico's vocabulary. EMP isn't in his vocabulary either, but it soon will be.

Kate Chandler, who requires a service dog, desperately wants to forget her past. She works as a bartender at a historical hotel next to the Alamo in San Antonio. Young and tough, she uses the bar as a barrier, so nobody will ever get close to her again. There's a problem, though. Nico, who has been staying at the hotel, has seen through the ruse. He makes a promise to her he intends to keep, that is, until the EMP interrupts his well-thought out plans.

A story filled with bravery and incredible courage, Unwanted World is a stunningly unique take on the chaos and the unraveling of society caused by the EMP. An epic tale with a twist on history, and one with fascinating characters and electrifying intrigue, proves once more - author Chris Pike is the one to watch.

If two stars is "it's okay" then it's two stars

It's just okay.

The character development is lacking. I found myself not caring that much about the characters and what happened to them. It's formulaic and you can guess what will happen before it does. I remember enjoying the other books in this series, was surprised to have to chew through this one.

I like this one more than the other in the series

There's excitement and drama, but this book isn't quite as brutal as the others in the series. I like all of the characters, each one is from very different backgrounds. I like the family dynamics as it portrays a "real" family. There's more different problems than I've found in most survivalist books. For example: the tarantula migration....who woulda thunk?

Not as good as the others in this series.

Good story, but really doesn't go with the series. The majority of these characters are new.

A Great One-Off Story

4.5 out of 5 stars

While reading this I kept thinking to myself, “is this related to the other books in the series?”. I know that it takes place at the same time, but I wasn’t sure if there was a reason that Pike went on a side-track for this story, but I am glad that she did.

The characters in this were interesting and honestly, I think I liked them as much as the other characters in the first three books. I found them instantly compelling and I wanted to know what was going to happen to them.

Having the story take place at the Alamo was a nice touch. Throwing history into the book, especially for people who were fighting to stay alive and having what some would call a “last stand” was great in my opinion.

Pike knows what she’s talking about and includes a lot of little tidbits in here that sprinkle in real-life knowledge with fictional stories about fictional people. It’s nice to learn something while being entertained.

The dynamic between Nico and Kate was a very memorable one. They had this different kind of connection. It wasn’t instant like most books (sure it was over a week or so), but some Post-Apocalyptic books seem to follow the theme of, it’s the end of the world… oh, you’re pretty, let’s make babies! But, this felt more real. It felt like Nico waited and tried his hardest to win over Kate and her service dog.

The inclusion of a service dog (for a mostly undisclosed reason) was really interesting to me too. Kate needed help calming down and not going over the edge into a panic attack and I thought that it was a really unique use of a dog in a PA book.

Overall, Pike hit another home run with this book, and I’m definitely glad that I read it.

I was given a free copy of this book which has not affected my review in any way.

Action Packed

This is an action packed novel that has the build up of a fantastic ending to what has been an exciting series. I can not wait for the fifth and final book.
