Publisher's Summary

ISIS delivered a devastating attack, crippling not just one city, as on 9-11, but the entire country. 

The government, while disbursing critical supplies, decided that this was an excellent time to consolidate power, and for one senator, the chance to lock in the presidency. 

An opportunity to bring the right-wing, anti-federal-government gun fanatics to heel. 

The government moved quickly to disarm the populace, using control of food and fuel as weapons, but things did not go quite as expected. 

In Reset: Book 1 - The Attack, the longest of the tetralogy, the devastating attack is illustrated in detail, both at a large scale and at the scale of the individual victims. This is no longer just a big-city problem. The violence is unrelenting this time, exhausting in its scope, but people are learning they can't sit back and watch. They begin to fight back. The entire book covers the first 72 hours of terror.

Wow! Pleasantly surprised

This is an author I wasn’t familiar with and honestly bought it because nothing else was jumping out at me while browsing. I should add that at last count, I have over 200 post apocalyptic (non zombie) books in my library and tend to only leave a review when one is exceptional or when one sucks. This book is the former. This book outlines a terrifying possibility. Coordinated terrorist attacks that would inflict sheer chaos and complete terror in US citizens and done so efficiently. I actually discussed this type of attack with my husband years ago as being the most effective style of attack so it was fascinating to read the author’s vision of something similar. I don’t want to give away anything, but the way the story unfolds, you become invested in many different characters and their stories very quickly only to be eventually surprised (even though it keeps happening over and over again). That there is enough to keep me interested. You get glimpses of a couple of characters you know we will see later down the line, but they are not much more than glimpses. In this book we follow the terrorists themselves and their attacks. Both the terrorists and the attacks were well thought out and you wanted to keep listening to hear what they do next. I know this is a vague review, but I seriously don’t want to give anything away and it’s a really well plotted book that needs to be experienced. The narration is done well and is a little more on the dramatized side, which I liked. Take a chance on this one. I guarantee you will be like me and anxiously awaiting the second installment!

Great Listen !!!

I have over 100 post apocalyptic/terrorist audio books in my library, and this has to rank in the top five. Well worth a credit! Hoping part 2 will be available on audible soon. I’ll definitely purchase!

Not bad - a bit dark

Other than the silly music the book is no bad. It shows how badly the USA could get it's butt beat if the muslims decided to rise up on us. Quite dark. It was nice that it was enough hours to be worth some credits

good book, bad sound

the writing itself is fine, albeit cliche. the music at the start and end of each chapter is annoying.

Holy Cow

Very detailed. Somewhat predictable at the beginning of each chapter, but the manner of that the chapters main characters meet their demise is well written. I'm very interested to listen to book 2.

An excellent, non-typical read

Author comes VERY CLOSE to describing what may be a future attack from followers of “the religion of peace.” Taking a wide berth from the usual dystopian story line, this novel will both hold the reader in suspense and provoke real world thought.

Good book. Excellent narrator

I loved the book. The narrator was excellent. My only criticism is that the music at the beginning and end of each chapter was very annoying.

I just can't finish this book.

I haven't decided if I will return this book yet. I dont think the reviews matched the content. Relentless describes it best which is the point I know, but jeez, mix it it up a little. The music cutting in constantly... just... no.

Just F'ing WOW!

I will compare this book to a short novella by William R. Forstchen titled "The day of wrath". That little story tore me apart because I live behind a school and watch the children talk to my lab named Ozzie over the fences. Daniel Syverson took it to a different level and shows what can and most likely will happen here if we allow ourselves to become sheeple. All of the things written are possible I am sure if the money and desire are there. I highly recommend this book and plead with the powers that at Audible to strike a deal and work on getting the series out to us. Well written, thought out, narrated and produced.

50 caliber projectile.

If you're going to introduce a particular rifle into a story you must do your research. The 50 caliber rifle does not shoot a 60 grain projectile. It shoots a 750 Grain projectile
