Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Chris Pike brings a fresh voice to the post-apocalyptic genre with another pulse-pounding, harrowing story about survival.
He was a man of quiet faith and determined courage who lived by an unwavering code of honor. He was a firm believer that the good guys would win and the bad guys would lose, although it didn't mean there wouldn't be casualties or injuries in the process of winning. EMP survivor Chris Chandler wasn't one to back away from overwhelming odds, and as of now, the odds weren't stacked in his favor. One way or the other, people were going to get hurt here or killed.
Amanda Hardy and Chris Chandler have been living comfortably at the Double H Ranch where they took sanctuary after the EMP. Deciding it was time to head to Austin, where they both have relatives, they leave the safety of the ranch to embark on a journey filled with unknown perils.
They have meticulously planned for the trip, carrying extra food, ammo, and water, and they think they are prepared for every possible contingency, except for one. Amanda hasn't been completely truthful with Chandler about her past - a past that will have tragic consequences.

and another girl with a jerk ex-boyfriend

The story is not as violent as some of the post-EMP books. There is plenty of violence, but it's not as massive as in other tales I've read.

Chandler and Amanda head to Austin to reunite her with her aunt she doesn't like and who doesn't care about her. Coincidence: Chandler also lives in Austin so they go to his place first. These girls just haven't made good choices. First Holly's ex-boyfriend is a jerk trying to kill her, and now Amanda's ex wants something from her. It gets a bit predictable and you figure out the "mystery" long before they do. On the way there Amanda proves time and again that she's more sass than brains, and she's very lucky she didn't get Chandler killed.

It's all entertaining and very possible. You just now know that you need to learn to shoot and to stock up on ammo, cuz if it ain't zombies, it's gonna be your desperate neighbors and old boyfriends.

I enjoyed reading the three books even though some of the language is trite (like a kid on Christmas morning), and the situations are predictable. The narration is pretty good, though not stellar. Probably a read-it-once.
