Publisher's Summary

No power. No lights. A world in chaos...

What would you do to earn a place in a fortress during the apocalypse?

When an EMP shuts down power worldwide, food factory worker Melanie and her best friend Lizzy must embark on a dangerous journey to reunite with Melanie's husband and daughter. But to earn a spot for her family in a secure fortress for the future, she agrees to help her boss find his own son first. And it quickly becomes clear she may have made a deal with the devil himself...

Meanwhile, her science teacher husband, Mark, vows to do whatever he can to protect their daughter, Shona. There’s no way to turn the power back on, and their hometown of Knoxville is quickly descending into chaos. His only goal is to find a way to get his family to safety.

As they struggle to come together, this fractured family must face off against a society gone mad. And when even greater tragedy strikes, they will need to find a new way to survive. But what is the cost of survival in a world on the brink of collapse?

Great book if you like end of the world survival

Good book, I like EOW books so of course they topic was good, but it also has a good story ark in my opinion. Of course as with any EOW story also had good drama and obstacles to over come.

Poorly crafted story

I always say that whenever you read dystopian literature, you have to be willing to just go with it. However, this story was just terrible. It is so unrealistic in terms of the characters actions that it was impossible for me to enjoy. Who’s going to go looking for a random kid during an event like this when they have their own kid at home? I sped up the narration to get through the story faster. Stacey Glemboski Is a good narrator and does a good job as usual, but other than that, I didn’t like it at all and cannot recommend it. Skip this one.

Loved it

Great book. Story line was written well. Very realistic. Everything’s not rainbows and sunshine in an end of the world as we know it scenario. Narrator was perfect for the book.

Gripping and Very Enjoyable

This is a book full of tension and danger with a little bit of cosy comfort hovering in the background! It is a very fast paced book and a lot happens in a short space of time. I liked the characters who showed an amazing amount of resilience and ingenuity but they did not feel fanciful, cardboard cut-outs. As a novel, this is highly recommended. The narrator did a very good job and made the characters come to life. For UK readers, her American accent was very clear indeed. Well worth reading and or listening to.

Really good disaster story and narration suited it

This was my first by this author and narrator and I really enjoyed it. This was a different take on the EMP disaster genre and I liked the way it was normal people. It really did work. The narration also suited the story and I would look out for more by both of them.

The ending was just perfect setting it up so well.

I was given a free copy of the audible book but this did not impact my review.
