Nothing Can Prepare You. . .

It strikes without warning. A massive geomagnetic solar storm that destroys every power grid in the northern hemisphere. North America is without lights, electricity, phones, and navigation systems. In one week, the human race is flung back to the Dark Ages.

Nothing Can Save You. . .

In Boulder, Colorado, weather technicians watch in horror as civilization collapses around them. Planes are falling out of the skies. Cars are dead. Pandemonium and terror grip the Northern Hemisphere. As nuclear reactors across North America face inevitable meltdowns, the U.S. President remains powerless in a heavily guarded White House. From London to Boston to Anchorage, there is no food, no water, no hope. It's every man for himself. . .and it will only get worse.

Survival Is Everything.

Only one man--army veteran Zeke Marshall--is prepared to handle a nightmare like this. But when he tries to reunite with his family in Dallas--across a lawless terrain as deadly as any battlefield--he discovers there are worse things in life than war. And there are terrible and unthinkable things he'll have to do to survive. . .

I'm not a doomsday person but this is something that could happen. Solar flares or emp strike. Protect the power grid.

We all look to the sun as a heat source and very desirable when on holiday, but what if it spewed an enormous amount of electromagnetic energy that it destroyed our electrical infrastructure. What would that be like? Today we cannot live without our gadgets, phones and TV this book gives a very realistic insight into that scenario. The story has a few threads following the lives of different people affected by the power out including the President of the USA and the main character Zeke Marshall a Afghanistan veteran who sets out to rescue his sister and family. This is a great book full of action and some thrills but most of all it gives you that view of how the world could be. Unlike some disaster type novels where nothing is concluded Tim Washburn nicely wraps up all the loose ends. Recommended

Although this isn't my typical reading choice, I went outside my comfort zone and gave this one a whirl. I believe the characters were well thought out and the story line was strong. It was action packed and fast paced from the first page. If you enjoy reading about disaster and destruction, then I would suggest this book to you. In Boulder, Colorado, the residents watch in horror as life as they know it collapses around them. With no power, no communication, no food, and no one to help, army veteran Zeke Marshall is all alone and he must endure hell to find his way back to his family. I received and ARC from NetGalley.com in exchange for my fair and honest review.
