Publisher's Summary

When the lights go out, can you survive?
For years, a few have warned that a day of reckoning was coming, but those warnings went unheeded and even mocked. Then that day came...
When Nicholas McNeil, a father and dedicated husband, turned out the lights in his suburban home Sunday night, they would never turn on again. During the early Monday morning hours, a spectacular and well-coordinated attack destroys the grid and brings the United States to its knees.
Nicholas was a man who had heeded the warnings to a degree, but most did not. With a society unprepared and a government overwhelmed, panic turns to chaos and soon violence.
Fighting for what resources are still available, Nicholas and his family also find themselves fighting to survive as society turns on itself.

Only one thing bugged me

What did you love best about The Defiant: Grid Down?

I liked that it didn't just tell the story from one perspective. Characters from different places actually meet and come together. Fresh idea.

Would you recommend The Defiant: Grid Down to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes I would. It's a good book with a lot of interesting twists.

What does Joseph Morton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have listened to several books that he has read. He is a awesome narrator. I'm convinced he could take the worst book ever written and make it interesting.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes but I can't put it on here without telling some of the story.

Any additional comments?

Okay there is one thing that bothered me throughout the book. I happened to read "the end" by G. Michael hopf. There are many parallels in this book, and one section that seems straight up copied out of the book by Hopf. These books are so close in nature that it seems the authors wanted to have a competition. If that was the case "the end" blows this one out of the water. But still a good book.
