A fresh breath of air...

Everything from the plot and characters down to the narrator are 5 stars. The premiss is similar yet very different than anything out there at the moment.
For the first 6 chapters I found myself waiting for that cringe you get when you meet the first zombies and thank God there are none. Instead you find yourself rooting for the good guys as they battle against enemies of their own kind, foreign invaders and a scorched earth battle plan.
You have unlikely enemies and allies coming together to fight against what to most would be insurmountable odds that would make the best of us curl up and check out.
Even better is the amount of useful information not found in the hundreds of other books like this... From the 5 C's down to inspiring the reader to look up EMT classes at your local community college.
I will admit I passed on this book a few times based solely on the length of the book because I am drawn to longer stories first but TAKE MY ADVICE and buy it... I now have another book to add to my list of checking back daily to see if the next one is out yet! So hurry up already :0)

Enjoyable Post Apocalyptic read.

For me, the best thing about this book was the fact that it could happen!... An EMP is set off grinding life as we know it to a halt. But it doesn't just stop at an EMP, whoever set off the attack, keeps attacking! The author portrays what happened and life after the event through the eyes of 3 separate people, Cassy, Ethan and Frank. It was just so chillingly realistic that it's hard not to think, "what if".

Anyway, the plot for such a short book was fast paced and interesting. It pulls you in from the start and doesn't let you go. But the shortness is also it's downfall, because the plot also felt very rushed. I mean, things start going bad within a few hours of the attack! I would think that maybe a few days would pass before things start going truly bad.

The characters were all well written and developed, which, again, for a short book is a bonus! I liked all three and loved how their stories intertwine.

In all, this my be a short enough read, but it's an engrossing one and I really can't wait to listen to the next in the series!!

Kevin Pierce! What can I say about him that I haven't said before. He truly has a voice for this type of book. It's clear, concise, and easily pulls you in. He never fails but to capture my attention and makes the books come alive and that much more enjoyable.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affected my thoughts.*
