Publisher's Summary

The strongest emotion of man is fear, and...fear of the unknown is the greatest fear of all.
Could you face fear head-on?
Can you forget all those moments when you thought you wouldn't survive, but did?
This fast-paced post-apocalyptic dystopian fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series) has been hailed as a masterpiece of EMP survival fiction. Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained, as the Blackout series continues with Shiloh Ranch.
After a perilous journey replete with highs and lows around every turn, the Rymans reach their destination only to face guns pointing at them from all directions. Did they make a mistake? Should they have stayed home where familiar surroundings may have outweighed the threats closing in on them?
They quickly learn that there is one constant in a post-apocalyptic world - the threat from their fellow man.
This is the fourth book in the best-selling Blackout series. This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults. Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from a devastating solar flare, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post-apocalyptic genre.

A change is narrators!

I have listened to all the Black Out books and several others by this author. You get a voice and character in your head, changing the narrator is a mistake.

Difficult listen...great book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration. It is difficult to switch narrators after listening to the first three narrated by Kevin Pierce. Kevin Pierce is not my favorite narrator, but he is easy to listen to and he makes the listeners "feel" the character's emotions. I often have to take a break after listening to a series by Kevin Pierce because his voice really "sticks" with the characters and I find it difficult to change gears. I listen to a few other books by other narrators, then come back to SHTF with Kevin.

What does John David Farrell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nice voice, clear reading.

Give it a chance!

I admit that the change of narrator was extremely hard, I tend to buy series in one hits and listen to one book after the other and this wasn't a good move, I can't understand what or why, but as a RH myself, I do know things can happen.

But, although I initially had to turn away from this book and series, I just went and listened to another, I came back to it, and gave it another shot.

The story tone itself seemed to be pretty different. In the last book, there were some historical moments given about some of the towns that they were passing through etc, and this seemed to have a lot more history in it. I'm not much into history and don't really know my way around the UK let alone the US, so I did find some sections a little much to get through.

The main bulk of the story, with our characters, moved along, they still had the proverbial everything thrown at them, and their development as a family continues on. I still enjoyed it for the most part.

I have the other two books, so moving on :) thanks Bobby for the entertainment, it's days like these that make me feel alive and treasure our world.
