Then everything breaks loose. First, all the power goes out. An EMP burst takes out everything with an electronic chip in it, all cell phones, computers, electricity, including flush toilets. Then, masked people begin to shoot everyone they see. Charlie stays alive by hiding. We see the world from his vantage point, which is frightening.
Hunt writs a very short, but very interesting tale about survival. If you like war stories written from the point of view of an ordinary citizen rather than a hard-bitten soldier, you’ll love this. This is where heroes are born, right next door.
Although his story feels rushed in a few places, his book is well-written, well-edited, and entertaining. It keeps the action and attention on point, just like his main character Charlie.
Does Charlie make it home? Would you, if you were faced with the invasion of an enemy? I believe that’s the point of his story. After all, survival isn’t about being the biggest or strongest, but about being a good guy no matter what the situation. And about thinking on your feet.
I love survival stories. This one was worth the read.
This is a very fast read. The action drives it forward but it is a short introductory type of book. Don’t be fooled though. The author, in that short length, took a moment to develop his characters. It made a nice surprise for me. Yes it does end with no ending. This is why I called an introductory book. I suspect the ending won’t happen for awhile. This is a series that relies on the book before as well as the next book. If you don’t want to invest in a series, this might not be the best fit. You could though put it away until the series has a few books and then read them together. As for me, I’m anxious to see what happens next, how does this affect the main characters and how it resolves. I’m probably not going to wait. I think there are three more as of this writing. That’s enough to get me started.
But the plot devices that the author uses are straight forward: not excessive filler dialog, graphic violence, menace, death of protagonists, love interest, kids, suspense, etc. I am looking forward to seeing what happens to the protagonists.
