Publisher's Summary

UKD1

"What would happen if……?"

Many people ask themselves the question, but how many actually do something about it?

Tom lives in Birmingham, England, with his family. After asking himself the question and researching what could happen, he decided it wouldn’t do any harm to be a little bit prepared. Just in case.

He discovers the world is going to be hit by a massive coronal mass ejection from the sun, which will turn the whole planet dark. He only has a few days to get ready. Will they survive?

People want what they have, but is he prepared to kill to protect it?

UKD2

Contact with Jerry’s brother has been made. Having defied all the odds and survived, will the group make it through the trials to come?

They’ve fought off brutal attacks and taken lives to protect their loved ones. Will the arrival of the army bring them security?

The answer is no. Powerful enemies are out there who will risk everything to take what they have. Will they be able to defeat them and keep everyone safe?

Continue to follow Tom, his family, his neighbors and friends as they face new challenges and threats to their very existence.

They are surviving. Would you?

UKD3

Winter is setting in, and the group must battle the worsening weather, as well as others who want to annihilate them. Cut off from any assistance the government can provide, they realize how tenuous their grip on survival is.

Facing plagues of rats, disease and death, the group is forced to make a fateful decision: evacuate the compound so that some can survive the disease; those who stay to care for family who have succumbed to the plague face almost certain death.

I’ve never ending struggle

I’m drawn to post apocalyptic or any apocalyptic stories and the struggle just to survive. I gave it a high rating because the story is excellent storyteller or narrator did an excellent job. Would recommend this book to anyone.

Ok

Ok story and a interesting take on a apocalypse but at times the story was ludicrous.

Most of the female characters are portrayed has gossiping feeble women

The narrator wasn’t the best with many of the characters sounding the same

Terrible

The book had a promising start but became increasingly ridiculous .
A waste of time.

Excellent

Such a refreshing change to read/ listen to a post apoc set in the UK. Chris Harris joins an excellent group of authors who have produced great stories with a UK reality.
I loved that the characters were every day people living normal lives, who battled for a chance to survive a incredible situation.
The story was fast paced and kept me listening until the early hours! Brilliant!

Brilliant

I really enjoyed listening to this trilogy (which is great value). The pace of the storyline was pitched right and the storyline itself was great. I liked that there was enough detail given however the author didn’t go into overkill and made it seem boring. This book is about the “everyday” person going through an apocalyptic event. The main characters are people we can relate to.

I really loved that the storyline was based in the U.K. as I can relate to that more. The narrator was perfect for this book. He did a fantastic job. This is definitely worth listening to.

It's ok.

Not great. It is obviously written by a conservative. My bet: a white middle aged, middleclass man.
The excruciating gender stereotyping where men are men or want to be, and succeed to be, men, and women are women will really get on the nerves on someone even mildly liberal or, well, not conservative. The author is clearly not comfortable writing female characters, which is probably why he basically hasn't. All leading characters are male. The protagonist's wife gets some lines and a few "woah, she's tough for a girl"-moments, but that only seems to underline the lack of female character depth.

[mild spoilers below!]

As in all post-apocalyptic books there needs to be a degree of suspended disbelief, but when the author mixes virus and bacteria as though they're the same thing, it really pushes it. Also stating the plague could be stopped by face masks even though he earlier stated it was spread by fleas. Oh, and if all electronics on earth was knocked out, how the hell did satellites survive?

That said, the narration was superb and the story entertaining enough.

Disappointing

A great start. I love the apocalyptic type books normally. The introduction of all the Royal family as all having survived was a bridge too far.

Turned it from a dubious story to a juvenile one.

Shame as there is not enough in this genre but there are some really good listens out there and as this story progresses it is clear it is not one of them.

If you want some decent easy listening go for Devon C Ford or the first two books by Joshua Gayou. Both almost easy listening but more depth.

Great story

I loved this audiobook, it was a great story with good strong characters you could believe in.
Set around a epic disaster to the UK, it showed the best and the worst of humanity.
The narrator A.W.Dickson did a superb job and brought all the characters alive
