Publisher's Summary

It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.

John Philpot Curran

Jennifer Martin struggles to keep her small business afloat in the aftermath of a global pandemic. But when a blast from the past informs her of a plan to take down America, she realizes the pandemic was only the opening act. Death and destruction hang like a dark cloud over the horizon. Jennifer must steel herself for the trouble to come.

Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.

Government intervention during the pandemic has weakened the economy and the social fabric of the nation. Nevertheless, bureaucrats and lawmakers refuse to change course and double down on the failed policies that have crippled the country. Rising prices and labor shortages are pushing Jennifer Martin’s small Atlanta restaurant to the brink of destruction.

A bitter red pill.

After years of being out of touch, Lucas McIntosh shows up at Jennifer’s doorstep. He tells her about his dishonorable discharge from the Army, and about the purge designed to cleanse the military of patriots and conservatives.

New laws serve to exacerbate the growing food shortage in America. Paired with crippling inflation, the scarcity triggers food riots across the country.

And a fatal false flag.

Shortly after the riots are brought under control, a cyber-attack brings down the electrical grid sending the country into total chaos. The assault is blamed on a group of malcontents who believe the last US election was rigged. But Lucas believes this narrative is only a ruse intended to further divide the fractured nation.

With so many already in dire straits, the power outage pushes people to the edge. The crisis brings out the worst in humanity, turning average citizens into desperate savages. Jennifer and her small group of friends will have to stick together and be smart if they have any hope of surviving the turmoil.

Don't miss this post-apocalyptic thrill ride set in America's near future. Get your copy today!

As with all works by Mark Goodwin, this book contains no profanity and no embarrassing sex scenes. However, if you're offended by conservative principles and references to Scripture, this book might not be for you.

Meh

I’ve listened to almost all of your books and this one was disappointing. Don’t really like the female narrator or the female story line, just too whiny. Stick with Kevin Pierce.

Mr. Goodwin cuts a little too close to quick.

This happened tomorrow. 2 chapters in and I'm ready for the purge. His other books were topical, logical and engrossing. This one so far is what I'm living. No Brandon hasn't outlawed meat yet.

Ripped from the Headlines

Seriously, I feel like I am reading fiction-nonfiction. I pray eyes will open to what is actually happening in the US. This book is written for such a time as this in the US. There are some really great quotes and sources to support the storyline. All that said, I trust God and know whatever happens it has not taken God by surprise. Trust God and get prepared. It is real this book is what’s happening in the US today.

As usual I am looking forward to the next installment. I will also be purchasing the paperback copy when it comes out.

My only complaint is the story is NOT 7 hrs and 14 mins. The actual story is 6 hrs and maybe 30 something minutes. The additional time is spent on listing Mark’s other titles and giving the overview of each series.

Greatest Book Mark Goodwin Has Ever Written

In The World We're Learning Right Now This Is Very Important That Everyone Reads Or Listens To This Book. This Is 100% Ripped From The Headlines & Whatever Has Not Yet Happened Will Come To Pass. We Are Here And It's Happening & We're In It Right Now. I Can't Stress What I'm About To Say Enough! If You Have Not Made The Conscious Decision To Follow Jesus Christ & Ask Jesus To Be The Lord & Savior Of Your Life. I Ask You I Implore You To Make That Decision With All Your Heart Very Soon Better Yet I Pray You Choose To Make That Choice Right Now . Time Is Truly Running Out In Fact I Think We Are Already Now Out Of Time. I Want To Let You Know Something Right Now. It Is Not Going To Get Any Easier. This Is Only Going To Get Worse From Here On Out. I Don't Say This To Scare Anyone I Only Saying This To Wake People Up Quickly. Without Jesus Christ As Your Savior a lot Of People Just Won't Make It Through All Of This. But When You Have Jesus Christ As Your Savior & You Are Filled With Jesus's Holy Spirit. Jesus Still Give You The Strength & He Will Work Through You In Your Life To Reach Others & Keep You Aware In Conscious & The Blinders Are Then Removed So You See What's Really Going On. when you become a believer in Jesus Christ people don't know this but what you were not aware of before do instantly become aware. when I was saved I didn't realize that everything I was doing was just so unappealing and was going against what Jesus wants for my life. I started seeing nothing was what it seemed and everything I thought was right was wrong and the things I never really thought about and always that was wrong with right Jesus was always right. sin is wrong and it's only fun for a season. but when you start realizing that it's not what you need and want in your life you start realizing what's important and you start seeing what the and who are real believers and are good examples to be around. and you realize there's lots of people that you might not want to be around just because when they might refuse Christ or they might not care but there's some that will just don't give up on people right away just cuz you become a believer don't walk away from your friends ask them to accept Jesus Christ before you just walk away. but remember things that you've been hearing that you might not believe right now will become very clear to you things you might have laughed at calling conspiracies you might go oh my gosh it's all true everything I was told by a friend of mine that was a Christian believer in Christ was right this is what is really going on right now things that you were blind to or didn't want to hear earlier before you were saved you'll be open to here and believe now that you are believers in Jesus trust me you can't truly know what's going on until you ask Jesus in your heart because before you're saved you're really blind and being led down of deceitful path you don't even realize. it's not until you except Jesus Christ that you know what's truly going on around you and everything you thought was a lie everything you were taught was a lie everything you came to know is a lie Jesus Christ is the truth Jesus Christ is the only truth it's the only way to heaven there is no other way to heaven there's no other way to get to the heavenly father except thru his only begotten son our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for our sins ask Jesus to come into your life pray as Jesus to forgive you for other sins & that you believe in him that you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and you believe that he rose from the dead on third day. you believe that he took our pain and our suffering our sin onto himself and suffered painful death on the cross for us so we could be forgiven. ask him to come into your heart and be the Lord and savior of your life and that you will live your life to the best of your ability according to his will and according to the word of God all the days of your life and let him know that you receive him now and thank him for saving you and forgiving you and for making you a new person in him. once you have prayed the prayer and ask Jesus to be your Savior. you are now beginning fresh every send you've ever committed everything you've ever done every bad word you ever spoke everything at all that's bad you ever done is gone forever. Jesus says that when Jesus forgives you he remembers your sins no more you are forgiven fully. the blood of Jesus covers all our sins when you say that it's because she's a shed his blood on the cross for us because it says in the holy word of God the Bible that Jesus said his blood for us so that we can be forgiven and saved because of his death and Resurrection. but and if you believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and the third day we know that he's alive he's not dead he rose from the dead alive and well and he's alive & well at the right hand of God the Father. and you are saved when you pray that prayer and belief with all your hearts when you truly mean that and you pray it and you mean it. you are now saved you are going to be in heaven with Christ Jesus when you die. you going from this life to the next life and it's not called dying it's going to be with your lord Jesus you're going to our true home the real place that we belong see this is not a real home this is just a home away from home or true home is in Paradise in heaven with Christ. and there is no sin no death in heaven there's no bad words there's no anger there's no sexual sin there's no bad thoughts there's no temptations. and having peaceful and everything is good and everything you've gone through down here will be worth it trust me everything you're going through right now even if you're all alone by yourself you're not by yourself Jesus is with you he's right there next to you telling you that this is the reason why you're reading this review he wants to know that he's there and he loves you and he wants you to become a part of the kingdom of God he wants to become a child of God he wants you to believe in him so that you can be with him forever in heaven. nothing anyone can do to you down here will ever take you away from God. they can try to be mean to you they might even hate you because you believe in I mean they hung Jesus on the cross because they lied about him and they made up crimes he didn't do but Jesus did it anyway so that he could be the perfect sacrifice for sin. and that's why we don't have to sacrifice animals anymore like they did in the Old testament because Jesus was the perfect sacrifice the Lamb of God. he wasn't obviously a lamb he was a man. but it is a metaphor for the perfect sacrifice. Jesus loves you and wherever you're at right now and just seeing this for a reason call out to the Lord Jesus Christ he will change your life and you will never be the same for the better your life will have a purpose in Jesus will have a calling for your life. pray right now and ask Jesus to make himself known to you and he will. ask Jesus to speak to your spirit about what his will is for your life. and you won't hear verbally you'll hear him in your spirit. and don't be discouraged just cuz you might not hear an audible voice. it's a spiritual voice it's it's inside you you'll feel the power of God in you by his holy spirit cuz when you ask Jesus to be your savior he fills you with his holy spirit that's the spirit of Jesus the spirit of God living in you. and then first thing you should do after you pray. is download The Holy Bible or get a Bible better yet if you can't find a Bible download the Bible app and read the Holy word of God that will give you all the answers you need to know about our savior and what he has done in your life and what he's going to do and what's to come on Earth. what we are going through right now is biblical if you want to know what's going on right now read the book of Revelation. it's the last book of the Bible it will explain exactly what's coming very soon and that's why I say people time is running out because what's about to happen is what Jesus said it was going to come to pass we're getting ready to see the beginning of the rise of the Antichrist and the beginning of the time of tribulation that falls upon the whole Earth. please read the word of God talk to your friends and your family about Jesus ask them to make the choice to ask Jesus to be their savior it's the best decision you'll ever make it's your eternal soul that's at stake without Jesus you will not go to heaven yet there is a hell and anyone who rejects God walks away from God who does not accept Jesus as their savior will not go to heaven but unfortunately they will have to answer for the sins and their life they have committed and why they walked away from God and did the horrible things that some of them might have done that could have been forgiven if they asked Jesus into their heart to be their savior and unfortunately there is a hell and many will go there without Jesus. unfortunately there's a lot of people that are dying in this world without Jesus I'm not going to hell I can't judge anyone to say they're going to hell we can't judge anybody and say they're going to hell but we can judge the sin not the person you can let somebody know what city is struggling with this let's pray together or can I pray for you don't ever compromise your faith and don't ever say we got to go with the times where living in. no no the Bible says Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever meaning he never changes if it's a sin in the Bible when Jesus was on the Earth then it's a sin today and it's still wrong today. don't let anyone try to trick you and tell you that oh but the Bible is so old today is the New generation Now doesn't matter the Bible says that Jesus is the same he never changes and if he says it's a sin then it's a sin today. and if you fall into sin we now have the ability to go to Jesus and ask for forgiveness and turn away from that sin and not go back just if you mess up and you ask Jesus for help say Lord forgive me and messed up help me to not do those things I shouldn't be doing whatever the sin is that you're struggling with and go to Jesus and lay it down at his feet. repent and walk away from that sin the Bible says go and sin no more. we can't be perfect we are going to have sin in our lives that's why I Jesus died on the cross for our sins. that we can turn to him and ask for forgiveness in hard times. and you can talk to God out loud whenever you want to because he's right there at all times he's always with you if anyone wants to make fun of you just ignore it and pray for them because I talked to God out loud all the time people think I'm crazy but I'm Not Jesus Is My Savior but also my best friend. there's no other friend that's better than Jesus there's no one greater. trust me you'll know what I'm talking about when you ask Jesus to be your Savior. God bless you I pray that you have made the choice to follow Christ Jesus has your lord and savior and read your Bible find a good church that's a Bible believing prophecy believing church. but also find a church that acknowledges the true Sabbath day the Sabbath day the true Sabbath day is Friday at sundown to Saturday at sundown. it was never Sunday the Catholic Church changed the Sabbath day to Sunday that was against the word of God you're not allowed to change the status day so when everyone says no it's Sunday no that's not true that's the Catholics version of Sabbath day that's not the true biblical Sabbath day we follow God's law & commandments not man's law. we'll do what Jesus calls us to do. Bible says follow the laws of the land until it goes against your faith. you will see that is going on a lot right now with many saying that won't get the vaccine. and I agree no I will not get the vaccine it goes against the word of God I will not allow anything that's not of God in my body like that. we don't know what's inside of it we don't want to partake in sin that we might not know we're taking part of. we I want so sadly what they're doing but we do not want aborted fetal tissue in our vaccines to be in our bodies. that is disgusting and we know that his believers in Christ that we should never abort any kind of baby in the world that is murder. and if you don't know what I'm talking about are you stand against me on that when you become a believers you will see that that will change you will see that you will say no it is wrong abortion is not right trust me Jesus will change your heart for the truth and what is the right thing to do. you will start to become Christ like in all your ways. we're not Jesus remember that obviously LOL we are children of God to be Christ like is to have attributes of your savior Jesus Christ amen God bless you and may the Peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. the scripture that always gives me comfort behold I am with you even until the end of the age. your never alone he's with you always even during the time of the end of days I love that scripture again behold I am with you even until the end of the world / age.

Another great Mark Goodwin but I miss Kevin Pierce!

This was a really good one well correlated with current times. I just kept getting distracted by the narration which sounded like she was gritting her teeth and speaking through her nose most of the time but the story is great looking forward to the next in this series.

You NEED to listen to this book!

I love the storylines Mark writes about. His books are ripped right from today’s headlines along with Bible prophecy. I’m an avid eschatological researcher and find his books opening my eyes to parts of the Bible I may have missed or didn’t connect with current events. This story about a certain planned demic certainly catch the readers attention. And if you haven’t been following along with what those on the other side of MSM, this will certainly open your eyes to why people are questioning everything.

What I also love about hearing from Mr. Goodwin is that he always incorporates preparedness in his books. You never know when an emergency will strike or what will trigger it. Just hearing his tips help one know areas to prepare for. He provides a beginning for your preparedness journey. It’s a good wake up call to be ready for anything.

When you listen to all of his books (I’ve listened to all of them twice now!) you realize just how close we are to Jesus’ return prophetically speaking. God’s timing is perfect & He is using Mark as a vessel to share this important message.

I also love both of the narrators that read his books. This story is narrated by a female and she does an excellent job portraying each character will.

I started listening to his books in late 2019 because Audible recommended the author to me. I have not been disappointed! I’m thankful Mark can write these books and get them published so quickly. Can’t wait for the next in this series!

It's what we all know is coming.

This story is like watching a black and white movie for the first time in full color. The writer gives a bleak look into a very possible future which will pluck your nerves and harden your heart. A great quick listen look forward to more. The voice actress was very good as well. 😁

Christians who Murder without cause

I was interested in the Christian / Conservative approach until this over zealous group of characters MURDERED unarmed US Mikitary members (likely Christians themselves) WITHOUT MERCY. They had a quote to attack the other side that applies to them “If you can get them to believe absurdities, it is amazing the atrocities they will be willing to make.” HORRIBLESelf-Righteous MURDERERS are the “Christian” heroes of this book

Come up with your own story line. Couldn’t get past the first 2 minutes. Sick of hearing and reading Covid trash.
