Publisher's Summary

Nathan has been a prepper all his life - but just how prepared can one man be when faced with a 2,000-mile walk through hell itself?

In the second installment of Thomas A. Watson's explosive prepper classic, the long-predicted Coronal Mass Ejection has arrived, destroying civilization. Nathan Owens has been prepping for a disaster like this for years.

But when it occurs, he is far from his family and his refuge. He has to pull together a team of young survivalists and, as he reluctantly leads them across the hellscape of what was once the United States, Nathan has to ask himself - what else is he willing to do for them?

In the midst of this treacherous journey, Nathan discovers that crucial information has been withheld from the public - and maybe Armageddon wasn't an accident of nature after all. But how can he prove it - before it's too late?

Genuinely Smart & Generous Main Character

Chris Abernathy does a great job narrating except in 1 regard...his unnecessary emphasis on the word "and". It does set him apart enough that I'll always be able to recognize his reading, but it detracts enough from the storyline to make me concentrate on possible grammatical errors instead of just enjoying the story. Often found myself thinking, author could have just used a comma, or the words "then" , "instead of" , "but" or "however"...SMH

As to the story, Nathan Owens ends up creating his own tribe. Emma is a serious trip (read the story because I'm not telling more than that, lol). I know it's supposed to show intelligence when a woman questions every decision a man makes, but Jasmine actually comes across as shallow, thoughtless and flat out stupid when it comes to her insistence on near nudity for sleeping, especially in a time when many women are being raped all around them. Besides, there are small girls who are learning about how to be women in this "new" world that are looking at her for direction. Nathan is clearly an oddity, a gentleman in spite of the loss of cultural norms. Makes him more likeable, but Jasmine much less so. Sooner or later someone is going to injure 1 of their group enough that all of the attention won't be on her. She's not wearing enough clothing to have any barriers to being assaulted or having some body part chewed off by a cannibal. Having clothing pulled on for removal by an attacker gives her time to wake up and fight back. Ok, enough said on that topic. Great prepper tips and reasonable situations where training provides the edge needed to come out on top. It's very refreshing to see Nathan training the kids to survive rather than leaving them unprepared targets. So many stories show characters foolishly doing everything to try to maintain normalcy in a world that will never be normal again, resulting in unnecessary attacks that happen directly because the kids tell things they shouldn't or draw attention that ends up being dangerous! I always tell those around me the truth, training like Nathan does, so I really appreciate a story that finally has a genuinely smart and generous main character.

well MMMM NOPE

I was asked to give this a listen so I did. I was told that the story gets off very slow, IT DOES! I was told that that I probably wouldn't like the narrator, I didn't! I was told to stick with the series because it has good information throughout the book, it does have good tid bits throughout the book series and it takes a good amount of time to get to the basics. In Short the story in my opinion was forced! As a Navy Guy I do not mind cursing when it has merit, it seems the cursing was placed for simple word count and had no foundation for it being there. I did buy all 4 in the series because I was asked to review the book for a class we teach and have only achieve exercising my eye rolls. I cannot in good conscience recommend this book, but applaudthe author for trying.. I do believe if the Author would have gotten some good actual preparedness advice it could have been an average book.

just not right

I love the storyline but I noticed on all your books the men seem to always back down to the women or girls if I was in his place no little girl would yell or tell me what to do that's just not right

Buy it, Read it, Listen to It

The continuing story from Book 1 - Book 2 is just as exciting, engaging and interesting with all its thrills and spills that it again leaves you wanting more as the story continues.

With the change of narrators from Jaret Sears to Chris Abernathy, although Chris Abernathy does a good job, my preference would have been to stay with Jaret Sears. From Book 1 and through his voice, the characters were built and in play, with all their individual quirkiness that makes them, them, it always takes awhile for the character to rebuild again with the change in voice that they're never quite the what they were and there is always something or they seem different from before as the story progresses that enviably they're not as you remember them,

Thus saying, I still enjoyed Book 2 and looking forward to the Book 3; Buy it, read it and listen to it. :-)

OMG Thank you for switching narrators

it's hard to believe this even the same story the narrator makes such a big difference, much more enjoyable than the first book, the story continues in this book and is very good.

Exciting and addictive

Just wow! The first book was really, but this one was amazing, it was fast paced and action packed, and the plot twists were just mind boggling, it kept me on the edge of my seat, and I finished it in one sitting. I really like Nathan, he's sassy and kicks a$$, I can't wait to see what he's got next in his bag of tricks.
