When Superstorm Nicole hits the entire U.S. eastern seaboard at once, the Eastern Power Grid fails and plunges half of the country into a complete blackout--no power, no phones, and no cellphones. Hospitals, banks, and grocery stores stop running, and chaos rules. Cities are controlled by gangs, and citizens have two choices: leave their homes or fight for what supplies are left. Luckily some people are ready. Four families from Pittsburgh flee the city and join together to live in a cabin in the middle of the forest and try to wait it out. But when IS the power coming back on? What will happen to a recession-era United States when half the country doesn’t have power?

I loved the premise of this story and appreciated that the author worked with a scenario that was actually within the realm of possibility. The plot is intriguing enough to entice a reader into pick it up, but is sadly let down soon after by its execution. The quality of writing is fair to middling. It's not terrible, but it's not great either. I personally found it difficult to keep turning pages—particularly as the momentum is slow to start and the opening didn't do much to suck me in. If the writing were polished this wouldn't be a huge issue, however, that said, I do believe the story has a solid enough bone-structure to grow (and flourish) as the author becomes more seasoned with their offerings. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion, which this certainly is.
