Publisher's Summary

Rules kept them alive, but a single choice could destroy them.
 

After discovering the identity of the mysterious Morning Star, and dividing Camp Olney, the Ford family prepare for an imminent attack from Jude Lawson. However, the real threat might not come from raiders but a powerful and ruthless group intent on making Whitefish home, and its residents captives. Caught between a rock and a hard place, Tyler’s forced to make a dangerous choice that could jeopardize everything they’ve sacrificed to gain. War is on the horizon, and no one is safe.
 

Some rules could break them.

Once again, Erika and Nate find themselves caught in the middle of the worst situation possible. Stuck inside the borders of the town of Whitefish, Montana, and unable to escape, a single choice to help someone leads to a devastating consequence, or does it? Not every death is in vain, and not every decision ends badly.
 

Is blood thicker than water?

Can the Ford family face their past and set aside their differences for the good of others, or will their attempts to save everyone strip away what good remains?
 

Rules of Engagement is the last book in Survival Rules, a post-apocalyptic EMP thriller series that follows the Ford family and their community as they fight to survive after an EMP destroys the nation’s power grid.

Fantastic story!

The author has a wild imagination and a hell of a way of writing a story. I found myself sucked in to this audiobook. This story makes you think about if everything goes to hell in a hand basket. This is a well written and narrated story.
The narrator does a fantastic job with the characters and the voices of each character making it easy to distinguish between the characters. 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙 💙💙

Satisfying End of Series

The 'Survival Rules' series concludes in the fourth book, 'Rules of Engagement'. This is a series of chronological books that build to a final climax in this last book. They are not meant as stand-alone novels. I recommend starting with Book 1, if you haven't already.

Camp Olney is recovering from their split with Jude and his followers. They soon hear of a new threat to Whitefish--a militia group intent on forcing tyranny on the residents. Tyler, knowing it's only a matter of time until the militia attack Camp Olney, attempts to enlist Jude's help in going on the offensive and attacking first. Meanwhile, Nate and Erika once again find themselves in a dangerous situation in town.

The Morning Star reveal from Book 3 doesn't rise to a major plot point in this book, of which I'm personally thankful. I was afraid it would make this book too soap opera-y. The book is a well-written fast-paced action story that leads to a satisfying conclusion. The theme in this last book of 'Survival Rules' is what a person is willing to do to protect others. Will they do the right thing and risk themselves, or turn away to save their own skin? The Ford family dynamic has a nice resolution to it as well.

I've said it before; I'll say it again. Miles Meili is my favorite 'voice of the apocalypse'. His storytelling style solidifies the believability of Hunt's writing.

I downloaded a free review copy of this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed. This is my voluntary opinion of it.

Highly recommended.

Last of Series

I love Hunt’s EMP series as has no zombies or virus just good characters verse bad ones. I’m enjoying following the adventures of Tyler, Erika, Nate, Corey, Andy, Bailey the dog, Allie, Danny, Jude and Morning Star. Recommend you listen to 1st 3 books for full effect of the characters and situations. There is a lot of action and twists with surprise of who Morning Star is and how bad the government turned. Sorry this is the end.

An interesting look into life when danger hits!

I have really enjoyed listening to this series . The author has created some very interesting characters from all walks of life to be able to show how everyone reacts differently to situations. In this last book someone from the past comes back to throw chaos on some of the main characters to see what they will do. I liked how the author had different groups of people fighting for different reasons but it all boiled down to one big one. We all want to survive even if at times we think that we don't. Sometimes you just have to take a step back and everything can change and give you a new perspective.
I received a free code for this book from Audiobooks Unleashed to listen to on Audible. This review is my own honest opinion.
