Publisher's Summary

It was the day the sun brought darkness.

It began as a spectacle like no other. They called it the Night of the Northern Lights—a phenomenal light show generated by the power of the sun. It ended in a powerless world thrust into chaos.

With over a million copies sold, international best-selling author, Bobby Akart, one of America's favorite storytellers, delivers up-all-night thrillers to listeners in 245 countries and territories worldwide.

The sun gives us life by radiating light and heat. Without this solar energy, the Earth would freeze. 

The sun also emits solar flares, eruptions of superheated plasma that travel through the vacuum of space. When two successive blasts slam into each other, they forge a Perfect Storm so intense that our planet's magnetic field is no match for its fury. 

This new stand-alone survival thriller thrusts the most dynamic city on Earth, New York, into darkness as North America is bludgeoned by the sun's ferocity. Scientists promised a beautiful aurora providing the city that never sleeps with magnificent hues of blue and green. For three days, New Yorkers took to the streets, parks, and rooftops to enjoy the awe-inspiring spectacle.

The city was filled with excitement as the media hyped the rare event as occurring once in 100 years. It had happened before and it was happening again. 

As the power grid failed, the city of New York collapsed with remarkable speed. The thin veneer of civilization was laid bare as man fought one another for survival. 

Bobby Akart delivers intense, up-all-night thrillers that have you whispering "just one more chapter" until the end.

Too abbreviated

This was not so much of a story as much as it was anecdotal fictitious musings, wrapped up in doomsday packaging. If your looking for one more thing to be anxious about with no real plot context this is the one for you.

a subject that is dear to my heart.

these stories have been a great distraction from the media stresses of our time. They also create a normalcy bias, in me, that rolls my eyes when, the developing characters don't know what to do. I see this as a good thing it lets my brain stay programmed

how is it possible

with Bobby a card I don't know how he does it but every book is better every series is a step above and all of his books over the years. I have gotten to respect him more. I am constantly amazed to see his research, his dedication to his characters and his storytelling improve every single time it's a tribute to his skill and his maturity of knowing his subjects.

Bobby Akart: A Pre-Eminent Storyteller

Once again, Bobby Akart provides an excellent story involving fact based actions and real world solutions. If you want to learn the basics effects of a grid-down situation while being entertained I recommend Perfect Storm 1.

decent story-weird far right commentary

I'm used to post societal collapse books to lean conservative, and it usually doesn't distract me even though I don't always agree. This book is different-lots of very specific political grudge points from the far right. For example, he brings up Colin Kaepernick as a turning point in our ability to coexist. That's one of many examples. it's distracting to the point that it's difficult to enjoy the story.

OH MY!!!

Since I became a Bobby Akart fan, I have been able to go from one book to the next, in a series. After listening to Perfect Storm 1, in a day, I have no clue how on earth I am going to be able to breath until Perfect Storm 2 comes out.
