Publisher's Summary

Evil doesn't become extinct; it evolves. Our world is a violent place. Murder, terrorism, racism, and social inequality are some of the forces that attempt to destroy our society while the state is forced to increase its response to these actions. Our own annihilation is barely held at bay by the belief that we've somehow evolved beyond our ancestors' base desires.
From this cesspool of emotions emerges a madman, intent on leading the world into anarchy. When his group of computer hackers infiltrate the Department of Defense network, they initiate a nuclear war that will irrevocably alter our world.
Aeric Gaines and his roommate, Tyler Nordgren, survive the devastation of the war, only to find that the quaint, politically correct world where they'd been raised was a lie. All humans have basic needs such as food, water, and shelter...and we haven't forgotten how to fight for what we desire.
A Path of Ashes is the first book in an exciting new series about life in post-apocalyptic America, a nation devoid of leadership, electricity, and human rights. The world as we know it may have burned, but humanity found a way to survive and this is their story.

Great Book, Narrator Needs Some Help.

What made the experience of listening to A Path of Ashes the most enjoyable?

Fantastic story, I cannot wait for the next book.

What other book might you compare A Path of Ashes to and why?

If you like this book, check out Convoy 19 by Mark Rivett.

What about Stephen Bel Davies’s performance did you like?

He did a good job overall he just mispronounced some town names. For Instance, Mexia is pronounced "Muh-Hay-Yuh" not "Mex-e-uh" and Seguin is pronounced "Seh-Geen" not "Suh-gwin". But overall he did fine. And yes, I am a native Texan who served in the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood where much of the story takes place, at least he pronounced Killeen correctly.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, it was awesome.

This book fires me up and makes me want to solidify my apocalypse plan! No big laughing or crying, but there is plenty of emotional scenes here.

Brian Parker is a brilliant writer and has really thought through how it would all go down if the nukes go off.
