      If you enjoyed Lights Out, The Jakarta Pandemic, or any of the "works" of James Rawles you will probably find this book interesting. This book isn't going to win any literary prizes. The characters are all cardboard cutouts (only good guys and bad guys) and the dialogue is laughable. I also found initial plot setup difficult to understand or believe. Too much "Clancy" for my tastes.Despite its flaws, the author keeps the plot moving along and the reader interested, and in the end offers a quick [...]

      Yes. I’m obsessed with SHTF books. This one is ok. I liked the set up for the ‘collapse’ seemed very plausible. Liked some of the ‘prepper’ talk and stuff, but that is about it. It reminded me too much of a Jack Reacher type book. It was a fast paced, good read…don’t get me wrong. I just like the more survival/learning to live off the land in these type books. I’m having my husband read this; I think he will really like it.

      I had been looking forward to reading this series based on reviews that I had read about it but sadly it turned out to be 'not my thing'. This was down to the MC and the way the plot was developed.The MC was the macho, brilliant and sex obsessed alpha male that I really don't enjoy reading about and I took an instant dislike to him. So having the story broken up with his moments of glory in the Gulf was offputting and I don't feel it added anything to the story. I wanted to read what was happeni [...]

    4. Ron Shoemaker says:

      This is a survival book that is actually fun to read. I gave it a five because of that and because it is particularly related to what we are likely to face shortly in the United States. Everyone can learn something useful from this book. Read it.

    5. Cindy says:

      I love all apocalyptic reads. A long series with likable characters is even better. The first book in this series about the economic break down of the American society and effects on the surrounding countries was a nonstop page turner for me. What makes it scary is that it seems like something that could actually go down. The story, for the most part, follows Bishop and his wife Terri just trying to make it out of Houston and through rural Texas to what they believe is a safe place. Meanwhile al [...]

      I've been disappointed recently with the plethora of self-published PA books on and elsewhere. While I fully support self-publishing, I feel that does not remove the requirements for a good story and good editing.In the case of this book, I was not disappointed.The characters are very believable, the plot is easy to follow and well thought out and the story is a joy to read. I became engaged with the main characters very quickly and enjoyed watching them grow and expand.over all, this book is w [...]

    7. Jim says:

      Good book and am hoping rest of books in series are as good.

    8. Ruth Murphy-Brown says:

      I really liked this book and have purchased the series as they came out.

    9. Tara Zormier says:

      the bomb!This is one of the best post apocalyptic series I have ever read! I love the lead in to the story and all of the details.

    10. Chris Sherwood says:

      Some may have issues with the misspelled words and grammatical errors, but its an over all good story. Another in a new wave of self published authors who are good storytellers.

    11. Liz says:

      Great bookIt a great survival book. The scenario of the fall of the United States is so real, given the state of our nation today. It's a page turner!

    12. Joyce says:

      LOVED this book. Nice story of post-apocalypse with a social study thrown in. Highly recommend.

    13. Robin Williams says:

      Good survival book. Fast moving. Happens in 2015. Makes one think. On to book 2!

    14. John says:

      Good TEOTWAWKI book - gonna start part 2 next. Fun read.

    15. Melinda says:

      I have not read much in this genre before, and I found this to be strangely compelling. The main characters were a bit cheesy, and the dialogue between them, and their jokes, were a little awkward for my taste, but I found the overall concept really engagingd probably a bit scary since this 2015 post apocalyptic world seems like it really could happen. I will be looking for the next book in this series to see where Bishop, Terri and this author takes us next.

    16. Mrs LB says:

      What I really enjoy about this particular series is the relationship between Terri and Bishop. Outside of the (sometimes) comical banter, Terri is treated as an equal and holds her own. While there are things that need to be explained at times, she is quick minded and catches on fast. I love that she is just as protective and deadly as Bishop and therefore awarded her own respect.

    17. Shelby says:

      Great book I have read a lot of this type of book. Some make sense and others are so far fetched you go really. He does a great job of building a believable scenario that actually scared me. I could see that happening today. I liked the characters and the story moves fast so I really enjoyed this book.

    18. Suhayl Howaida says:

      Starting off I wanna say, I love the genre and liked this book enough to continue the series. I gave it 3 stars for the horrible editing and sad attempts at humor. The characters were a little silly at times and sometimes not believable, but I will continue on and enjoy.

    19. Lucas Darathy says:

      Almost a four. Why not? Let's see:The multiple POVs. While they do make the book very rich in details, it also drags the story. A lot. Sometimes, it's interesting. Sometimes, it's not.The flashbacks. A few are okay. But I'd say that the author overdid it.He also overdid it with the "humour". Bishop is funny. I get it. Haha. Can we move on? Because, let's face it, the only person who thinks he's funny is Bishop himself.Other than that, I actually did enjoy this book a lot. Including Bishop, even [...]

    20. Steve says:

      God story that is a fun read. Curious complainers are some other reviewers comments about predictability -question whether they understand the genre is stories who follow the successful, and buries the unsuccessful as the story tells out? I am sure there is some loser's fiction out there where they can follow the unsuccessful Or perhaps not. Fun story with some solid thought provoking moments. A good interplay as to how fragile the trust we share is when we fail to discern the difference between [...]

    21. Nikki says:

      This was good. The main character was super lucky. Even with getting shot. I'm ok with that, heros are always lucky. I'm sure someone more experienced than I would have found more issures than I did. My only issue was that two totally diffrent people had painted buildings to look destroyed in the first month of the shtf. It just seemed unlikely that a motorcycle gang and a former marine both had these rare skills. Other than that, which probably didn't bother most readers, I enjoyed reading this [...]

    22. Marcia Blum says:

      I liked the book, but it isn't a literary classic. I am fascinated by the theme of social apocalypse and wonder if I would ever be able to survive in such a situation. I selected the book hoping to learn a few survival tips and obtain some insight into the nature of other survivors. The author has good tactical skills and tries to weave some of them into the story. I, who has never even gone camping, am constantly impressed by those trained for combat and survival. I have discovered that I may b [...]

      Follow Bishop & his wife Terri leaving their suburban home south of Houston to their ranch (a camper, a few boulders settled in a desertic canyon in west Texas)after the collapse of US during the Second Great DepressionThere are some parts I skipped (the author rambling about economic features, his thoughts about the why and how etc) but I enjoyed Bishop & Terry stressful journey, their encounters with bad and good guys, a great panel of second, third & fourth characters. It seems th [...]

    24. Clifford says:

      Since this is written in what would be an apparent time of societal collapse due to an economic crisis that we seem to be very close to; it is a very interesting book to read. There are a few points that are a bit hard to actually believe could happen and yet, it appears to be happening before our very eyes almost daily. This is not a standard "how to bug out" book but a diversion into what the potential could be, written from a fictional perspective. It did give me a few ideas about things that [...]

    25. Bronwyn says:

      Interesting read, fast moving story. Hope this sort of situation never happens in our lifetime, but as world affairs keep unfolding you know it could. Generally speaking not many of us have the skills of the main character Bishop, and if TEOTWAWKI happens, I think I would rather die sooner than later and be left with the horrible people that would take over, man can be an evil beast. All that said I am keen to read the other 2 books in the series

    26. Tbone says:

      This book was an excellent read. A fictional account of how one married couple survives in America when a foreign attack is realized that shuts down all electronics and power in the US. Society slowly starts breaking down and there is everything from bartering to shootouts in this book. Very good book as well on how things "could happen" definitely not super far fetched or way fictional. Seems very realistic. Now on to book #2

    27. Kthardin says:

      Fairly decent fictionalized portrayal of what could become very real events that are mixed in with useful survival advice. The only real problem is that the main character is someone most of us aren't and can never hope to be, but then, he was made to be this to demonstrate very real survival tactics in a variety of situations that one might encounter when the SHTF.

    28. James Woods says:

      I bought one of those bundles deals and received this with another book. I liked it. The author's a little stiff in his writing and I found a couple of typos. I think its a very good story that could have been a little better written. If you like a reasonable PAF story, this one is worth reading. Lots of good action.

    29. Neal says:

      Exciting adventure during social collapseExciting adventure during social collapsea man and his wife must escape Houston during social collapse instigated by state terrorism. what's nice is that not everyone becomes barbaric, although it does raise a strong concern about human nature during bad times.

    30. Rob says:

      Another review said it best. This is basically a Jack Reacher book, but set after the collapse of civilization. 95% less preachy sermonizing than the other survivalist novels that I've read so far.
