Publisher's Summary

Strike Point - Blackout

"If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy." (James Madison)

There were many who said it would happen. No one listened.

Was it true that ISIS set off multiple EMPs across the United States, taking out the entire power grid? Or was that just a cover-up?

John and Laura Monroe are stuck on a train that has come to its final stop 150 miles from home. With no communications, and with strange storms taking over the skies, every decision they make could be the difference between life and death.

Strike Point - Caged

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves." (Abraham Lincoln)

The new world without power has been tough to navigate, but John and Laura continue to learn.

John longs to get back to his home in St. Louis, but there never seems to be an easy way to get there.

Until one day they are given a gift that will change the course of all their lives.

But will that change mean freedom or have John dangling at the end of a rope?

Strike Point - Adrift

"In the end we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends." (Martin Luther King Jr.)

Months after an EMP has taken down the grid, John and Laura work tirelessly to get back home.

But even their newfound comrades can't save them from the evil that awaits.

America has been infiltrated by a force that wants only to see the country burn and its citizens turned into slaves or worse.

Hard decisions have to be made, and the wrong ones could be fatal.

Like watching a B Horror movie

I have listened to many books in this genre. So if you are new to this genre then I would recommend it. If you have listened to many then I would probably pass on this one. Everything the characters do is dumb. I guess that's how Hawk decided to present the book. It works for some audiences but for the veteran in this genre its just annoying.

Dumb man making dumb decisions

Kevin Pierce is brilliant as usual. The story is horrible. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. If not for the narrator I would have quit listening

Good story!

A few clinks in the story line, but a good description of an apocalypse scenerio in the United States.

In the beginning it was pretty good, but then

The book started out pretty good, but the further you went, the dumber it got. When they introduced the ridiculous Isys element it was just plain ridiculous. Don't waste your time, there are much better survival books than this.

Love it even if I was screaming at them!

Would you consider the audio edition of Strike Point - the Trilogy to be better than the print version?

No time read that is why I love audio books so much.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Strike Point - the Trilogy?

My husband would say, watching me stomp around house with my ear buds in yelling at the people in the book. This book wasn't written as a how to but a how not. I think that is why I loved it.

Which scene was your favorite?

The wedding, it was a sweet moment.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did have some stomach turning moments at the rape scenes.

Any additional comments?

Emerson Hawk I hope you have more coming!

Use Common Sense

What would have made Strike Point - the Trilogy better?

A story that made sense...

Has Strike Point - the Trilogy turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Have you listened to any of Kevin Pierce’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Kevin Pierce.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger...As I listened I wondered WHY are these people going to St. Louis? A house... anyone who had ears along the way, would know it was destroyed. Close family? Nieces and nephews that they probably saw once a year in normal times? They had everything they needed on Ben's farm and anyone with a brain would have stayed. But I guess the author would not have had a book. Should have had a desperate reason to go home. A daughter or son maybe. Making the story more credible...

Not realistic

While this was a good listen, there were too many times that folks needed something, and it magically appeared. No way would all the needed items etc. just become available.

Hope the next book is better thought through...

Right after listening to 9 of Mark Goodwin's audiobooks which are also apocalyptic, this story line is weak and is hard to imagine. Quick examples:
One character named George takes on 4 trained, armed soldiers and incapacitates each of them, saving the day and the heroes of the book.
Next quick example: a boat that is big enough not to capsize when an adult runs and jumps into it (a flying leap) requires only a single gallon of gasoline to go a long way immediately following a short time of full throttle while carrying 5 adults to escape risk from gunfire from the shore. Any boat owner would know that a gallon of gas would be consumed very quickly in a vessel which would be able to do these things.
Not well thought through, and could use some pretty basic editing to maintain consistency in the story line. Recommend Mark Goodwin's audio books which, while not perfect, are basically believable, at least.

I wanted to like this book but.....

I really enjoy this genre but I'm afraid this book didn't impress me. I found the characters rather annoying to be honest. Then there was the repetition of themes, including a very stereotypical depiction of Islam which i found very simplistic.
