Summary

The fabric of American society has been torn asunder by an EMP attack on the United States. The enormity of what has happened is sinking in to the population. No area of the country has been spared. From the big cities to the rural countryside, all have been impacted.

Loved ones are stranded far from home, their suffering families not knowing their fate. Food is in short supply, transportation has come to a halt, and a short trip across the county can become deadly. Law and order has fallen by the wayside.

Desperation is setting in, and desperate people will do desperate things. The struggles and the fight to survive is real. The physical, mental, and emotional scars will last a lifetime.

The time is now for individuals and communities to come together in order to survive. But will they? Will you? Those that survive will never be the same.

rediculous midwest girl fail at a southern accent

the story is worth listening to, just be prepared that you will have to listen to 2 horrible narrators read it to you in horrible southern accents. You will also have to listen to a different prayer about every other page as well.

good and very knowledgeable survival

I like the book a little much on the praying but I respect the author and his religion and how he wants to do it. I personally love the book. it reminded me in the beginning of the series of American survivalist by A. American on little details. but it had its own little twist and I recommended it.

What an adventure, great story. Bad narration

The narration over this series has been terrible the whole ride with extremely poor southern accents. Don't let that take away from the story, it is very well written and had a great plot. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in apocalyptic books.

Great story / Hard to listen

My wife and I have listened to this genre of fiction novels for the past three years on audible while we travel. Most are difficult to listen due to the graphic language, so it was refreshing to hear/read from an author that did not believe that sort of foul language was necessary. But... the fake southern accent from the narration became too hard to listen. We started laughing so much the story became insignificant. Why the author would use that makes no sense. As much as we enjoyed the story we would not purchase another if the narration were done by the same readers. Just being honest, thank you.

why??

I enjoyed all three of these books but after all the trauma in these books a wedding really could have given it a happy ending of sorts. you should do a "readers theatre" and have different actors rather than a few people doing many parts. Just a thought. Good book over all though. I wanted a apocalyptic happy ending though.

Eye opening! The whole series!

What a journey this series has been! Loved it! Reality of what comes out of people when tragedy hits. Some good and of course some bad and evil!

I really dont like this one book.

This book in particular is a little too unrealistically Christian, and ridiculous the way some situations unfold. I have to say that I dislike this book over all other apocalyptic books I've read. (More than 2 dozen). I'm all for the Christian aspect, it's just too overtly Christian at times. I also think some of the narration was just subpar. I just didnt like this one book, even as part of the series, at all.

Great story

A great story with a great ending. I appreciate the use of Christianity in the story. Not everything has to be secular. Bravo, Mr. Motes!

3rd book of the trilogy

I love the characters in this series. One of the best post apocalyptic books . I read the books a year ago, not having time to read, I had to get the audible. I love the characters.

Great series

Finally got around to listening to this trio of books and can’t believe I waited so long! I really enjoyed the male/female narration and first person writing. I highly recommend.
