A real "waker-upper" for the United States. The realm of possibility of this story occurring is too real in my mind. I realize this is fiction but as one reads it their mind will most definitely picture themselves in the situations all through the book. I think this story is one that should be read by many throughout the entire world and realize as they read it they could also be viewing their own nation placed in the scenario James Howard has created. You are driving along approaching the store and you see a huge fireball going off and rising in the atmosphere somewhere in the distance. You start thinking to yourself wondering what in the world was that and what caused it? You decide in a very short time that it had to be a nuclear device that went off in your own nation and you ponder what to do. You continue to the store and as fast as you can you shop for everything you think your family would need if they were segregated from other populated areas for quite some time. You tell the shoppers and workers in the store to get prepared for bad times but most of them don't know what you are talking about yet. You head home and tell your family to gather up all the needs for a long period of time to be self-sufficient. You listen and/or watch the news and find that more of these nuclear devices had been set off elsewhere in the United States knocking out power in much of the nation. You own a boat on which you had been finishing the final touches so you could enjoy it in leisure but now this boat might become your families' salvation. Jason Ribault, his wife Valerie, sons Jeremy and Brian, and daughter Kathy, started gathering everything they could imagine needing for a long survival period. South Carolina was safe right now but who knew what might occur in the near future. After taking another shopping trip the family decided to take off for the coastal area in hopes they would find a safe area in which to stay. Jeremy decided to stay with his girlfriend and her parents, the father of which was a pastor. The Ribault family was also quite religious and strongly believed in God and had much faith that He will guide them to the proper place and safeguard Jeremy and Pastor Rick's family. They had a working radio that they listened to very often to keep up with the news throughout the world. They discovered that other nations were involved through extremists attempting to control every area possible including the United States. Their trip to the outer islands off South Carolina was scary to say the least. They eventually found an area where they wanted to hide so they parked the truck after placing everything possible in the boat for their survival. The lawlessness, the civil unrest, the militias, the terrorists, those that would kill you and/or steal from you, and lack of communications, were very plentiful as they tried to find that safe place. When they thought they had a secure area something or someone would prove their security thoughts wrong. With power out almost everywhere and most radio stations blown off the air, they searched the world for stations in many languages to learn what was gong on everywhere. James Howard, you must write a sequel to this book. As I read it I pictured my family and myself in the same circumstances and shuddered just thinking of the possibility. Please, if anyone would like a glimpse into the possible future of a United States hurt badly by terrorists using nucl
