Publisher's Summary

Two weeks have passed since the lights went out and in that time, Nicholas McNeil has assembled the equipment, a team of devoted survivors and has located a safe place to go hunker down. The catch is that it's over a thousand miles away. He is ready for a tough journey but as the miles grow longer he discovers he's not quite as prepared for what mankind is capable of until he's face to face with it. He discovers the once picturesque landscape has been replaced with brutality and barbarism. Can the defiant few make it and if they do, will they only find more of the same there?

Fun But Flawed

First the good. Having enjoyed the first book I was looking forward to this sequel. This story has the same good pacing and blend of action and character development. The narrator is excellent. I have two negatives. As other reviewers have noted, this book is short-too short. Not enough bang for the buck. I quit on the "A. American" books for the same reason, diminishing return on investment. My second negative was the introduction by the author of a metaphysical element in one of the sub-plots. This struck me as jarringly incongruous with the rest of the narrative. As soon as I heard it I GROANED. And its not even original. Its basically an Indiana Jones rip-off. I will not buy the next installment whenever it becomes available. The combination of these two negatives is a deal-breaker.

Good premise, until we had to copy National Treasu

I am a fan of apocalyptic fiction, but c'mon why do we need to weave a mystical treasure hunt into this. The book was fine standing on it's own without the ancient artifact.
