Publisher's Summary

A week after a cyber-attack crippled America's power grid, millions are dead - frozen by the worst winter storm in a century, irradiated by exploding nuclear power plants or murdered by ruthless criminals. Millions more starve and battle for survival amidst the ever-worsening conditions.

Despite the long odds, ex-cop Nate Bauer is determined to do whatever it takes to reach his pregnant wife and family in Chicago. Joining him on this perilous journey is 15-year-old Dakota, a young prepper on a mission to find her uncle.

Braving the frozen wastes of Illinois, however, may be the least of their worries, since the road to salvation runs directly through the heart of America's most dangerous city.

Action-Packed; New Characters Introduced

'System Failure' is the second book in the 'America Offline' series. The author continues the story of Nate and Dakota's search for their family members. Dakota is searching for her uncle and Nate for his wife, sister-in-law and nephews. Hampering their search is the coordinated cyber attack on the power grid amidst the worst winter storm in more than a century. Their journey takes them into the heart of Chicago. Will things work out as Nate hopes?

The book also introduces new characters. At the Chicago airport, Holly and her son, Dylan, are trapped. There are no resources coming to help and everyone is almost out of food. Holly and Dylan flee when the airport becomes too dangerous, but will they find safety in the city?

There's just as much action and suspense to be had in this installment as in the first. Nate and Dakota meet both friend and foe on their way to the city. The story of family is a strong theme in this series. The 'family of choice' element is very interesting. The plot and dialogue are believable. Overall, It's a well-written story and I look forward to the rest of the series.

Once again Gary Teidemann has provided narration that draws the listener into William H Weber's great story.

I received a free review copy of this audiobook, at my request. This is my voluntary review.

eehhhhh

the story is ok if you can get passed the narrative being so dramatic constantly. Not the most detailed or realistic story ever. lind of seens like the writer had an idea and just ran with it without doing a lot of research or having first hand knowledge. For indtance stop calling a civilian bought and owned rifle an "assault rifle" and The first book Nate constantly used his cell phone as a flashlight despite mentioning the battery and trying to charge it and having a "tactical" flashlight in his backpack. Just like i did with this book after getting through the first one i'll listen to the 3rd to see how it ends. I'm kinda invested now but i wouldn't recommend this to a friend

Kept me interested with the right wing propaganda

It was far from my favorite book but an okay read. Just joking about the propaganda, but I thought another review was laughable. As if morals, character, prepping, and respecting laws and the Constitution is a right wing thing. If that is the case then thanks for the complement. I do find it a little far fetched as far as they day 1 or day 2 events but then again....It is a book. However, we have lived through plenty of things that make it as least plausible. Back to the book, it was somewhat predictable but kept me engaged in the overall story. For some reason I don't see book 3 on Audible. Let's hope that changes.
