No power. No law & order. No safety net. The world as everyone knows it is over.
Laurel is stabilizing a patient in the ER when the power goes out. As she struggles to keep her patients alive, she faces an ugly truth—the world as everyone knew it is over. The smart thing to do is run and try to survive, but Laurel refuses to leave her patients behind—least of all her sick mother. There’s only one choice to make. She’ll have to stay and fight.
Bear is done fighting. War and PTSD have cost him everything—his job, his self-respect, and his wife - Laurel. But when he can no longer deny the old world is gone, he gains a new purpose. Laurel is hundreds of miles away from his mountain cabin, but he knows she needs him.
After so long being a lost solider, he finally has something worth fighting for. The highways are clogged with dead cars. Frantic survivors want his truck, his tools, his supplies. He'll face treachery, desperation, and endless miles of unforgiving wilderness, but he's going to find his wife. Together, they can survive anything.
He just has to reach her.
Great collection of different characters. Told from different POV from characters with their different ways, attitudes and thoughts on how to survive the EMP. Lots of suspense and action.
We see how similar situations affect people differently and cause them to act in strange, sometimes overly aggressive ways too.
Well written, great believable settings, certainly makes you ponder what you would do in a similar scenario.
Amazing start to another potentially great series by Grace Hamilton. Definitely makes for addictive reading!
When can I read some more of this series?!
