Overview

In the wake of a solar event, the likes of which hasn't been seen since
1859 when the height of technology was the telegraph, the northern hemisphere is faced with a new reality...a life without power. The electrical grids of virtually the entire planet have shorted out as a result of expected, but completely unplanned for, sunspot activity during the peak of the current solar cycle.

Joel Taylor and his family, along with a few close trusted friends, have to decide how--and even if--they can survive in their suburban Nashville neighborhood as things deteriorate within a matter of days with no electricity. Once they decide to strike out on their own, the only question that remains is where? Through the recent prior military service of Eric Tripp, one of the small group to leave the neighborhood, they are allowed to attach themselves to the local National Guard Unit until they decide where they are headed.

With the power out, and no communication with higher authority, the Guard is on its own and downtown Nashville is becoming a less safe place to be. The entire Armory, group and all, relocates to Natchez Trace State Park to set up operations for the duration of the crisis...however long that may be.

    This ‘End of the world as we know it’ novel is one of the most exciting, realistic, and incredibly well written and researched works I’ve read since ‘One Second After”. From page one, keeping up with the dramatic events and struggles will keep you holding your breath and rushing to find out what happens next. The characters are so alive and vital that you’ll feel as if you know them personally. Even if you’re not a post-apocalypse fiction fan, you will love this book! It’s that fantastic!
