Publisher's Summary

Russ and Anne Mathews live in a rural suburb in Tennessee. Regular people, with regular jobs, living a normal life - except for one thing. They are what many people call "preppers".

They have stocked up on supplies to survive any kind of event they can think of that may occur to disrupt life as they know it. When that event comes, they start preparing for the new way of life they will face. Along with their teenage son, and their next door neighbors and best friends, they plan their exit from a neighborhood too close to the city to a farm in the country. They just have to get there.

Their faith in their own capabilities and in humankind will be challenged, as they fight to protect and keep their supplies and, quite possibly, their lives.

When the Power is Gone is the first book in the A Powerless World Series, dealing with how life might be lived after an EMP. If you like post-apocalyptic fiction, this novel by PA Glaspy is a unique story from a woman's point of view.

    "same ol same ol"

    Typical, same emo story ive heard time and time again. Need more lights out books imvolving the totally un-prepared as characters. I cant stand anymore of these where the chatacters happen to be rich or have killer jobs and happen to be preppers. I wanna hear about the zookeper who has no idea why all the cages suddenly unlocked when the lights go out. and his/her mission home. now thats a story

    "NO NO NO!"

    This book could be a 5 star story but I'll never know because listening to this narrator is like listening to long nails
    on a chalkboard, This is nothing more than
    a shopping list

    "Awesome"

    I too was looking for a good apocolyptic book from a woman's point of view. I too even started to write one. But then I found this series. Love the story and the narrator is the best I have heard yet! Can't wait to start 'When the Peace is Gone'.

    Story
    "in a perfect world"

    nothing goes this smoothly on a regular Wednesday, much less during an emp inspired apocalypse . very Barbie-esk, with an instant solution to everything that pops up except for just shooting the bad guys. guessing that at my house, post emp, there will be more visits from Mr Murphy and more shooting but fewer cofflee breaks with fresh baked muffins......probably better suited for teen girls wishing to switch from vampire romance to dystopian fiction. 3 stars for effort

    "2nd worse story and narrator"

    The narrator was terrible.
    The story was weak.
    Peppers who have everything for every situation.
    Everything happens just in the nick of time.
    Completely unrealistic.

    Story
    "Author needs to read up on tactics"

    The bones of the story are okay but could be even better with some basic work. I want this and other authors to help the SHTF community to learn and not be given poor examples of "tactics".

    I hope the author watches some good tactics videos and reads a few tactical books before the next installment. I only say this because I want to like the story and author and appreciate the time that went into it.

    There are so many tactical mistakes made in the book the characters would all be dead by chapter six. There is no reasoning with desperate deadly people. Learn what is meant by "there are always other weapons and hidden threats." The characters show almost no tactical skill in spite of some of them allegedly having prior tactical skills training.

    The narrator needs to learn about theatrical pause, but if she works on it she could be pretty good with more practice. Slow it down a little, going fast does not add excitement.

    "Simple Tennessee Woman surviving"

    The author states she just wanted to write a book about a woman like her trying to live in an upside down world. She did a great job at making her a person, making her family people you care about.
