Summary

Mayhem is about to boil over.

After the most recent attack on their remote compound in Central Vermont, Abram and Nick find themselves safe, for now. But when a new group rises up to take advantage of the turmoil caused by the massive solar flare, Abram and his fledgling community will have to become more proactive if they want to survive.

A final threat that will spell their demise.

A member of this new group has intimate details of the compound and is ready to strike at a moment’s notice. But his leader’s plans are far sweeping and risk putting the entire region into the hands of a madman.

A time for leadership and strength.

With this new threat on the horizon, Abram, Nick, and their allies must act now to have any chance at long-term survival. Will they persevere through their most difficult test and find peace in their community? Or will they perish under the iron fist of Vermont’s new strongman, and suffer a fate even worse than death?

Instant Mayhem is book three in the EMP Crisis Series, a post-apocalyptic survival thriller series about regular people struggling to survive after a solar EMP.

Simply amazing

This series made me laugh, cry, exited and kept me wanting more and on the edge of my seat all the way. Kevin brought this book to life with his flawless narration.

I’ve been going through a very difficult time lately and his readings of these brilliant books has kept me going and helped to take my mind off life in the real world, an apocalypse all of my own.

Right, onto the next Kevin Pierce book.

Too Predictable

Good story in whole series, but kind of reminds me of old time western theme. Good guys may get bruised and suffer hardships, but they will win and find redemption for past errors. These folks were protected and acquired combat skills that were beyond belief. Need to work out realistic scenarios for future stories. You guys can also resist the phrase ,Flat-lined, and find alternate adjectives for variety. Look forward to more from these authors with considerably more plausible outcomes.

Overall great series

Everyone likes a good story. Kevin Pearce is once again showing his best side as a performer. As for the series itself, I would give it a seven out of ten. Changes I would consider would be to sell all three as a box set, or at least two of them paired. Too expensive when purchased separately and it kept a lot of potential listeners from finishing the story in my opinion. The only other suggestion I would make would be to have delved into some of the technical aspects of building the compound. Specific preps, details of food types, volumes, plans and techniques. Worth a read for sure!

Mark J. Russell, J.J. Holden- True Professionals

Every book by either of the two incredibly talented authors is always, without fail, a masterpiece. I don't believe that either of the two gentlemen are capable of subpar works, if they commit it to writing and submit it to the best narrator in recent memory, Kevin Pierce, chances are the finished product will shimmer and shine. Thank you for keeping your talent honed and refined, all of you are among the best of the genre and you bring us invaluable information, captivating stories, well designed plots and ridiculously well performed works of pure art. Well done guys!

*I am a professional critic and reviewer, but I am writing this review just as most of you, as a result of an Audible credit being expended and receiving this book through normal retail channels and although I have not been compensated for this work, I may have a professional relationship with the involved creators, this review is unrelated and my opinions are my own and are not a result of any past, present or future relationship.
