Story starts where the main characters who work at a government agency are at a required meeting on the other side of the state from their homes. Similar to what an EMP strike would do, terrorist attack the electrical grid and refiners. Without gas and power people quickly become desperate as they run out of fuel and food and water are limited at best. The series track the people from the meeting literally walking most of the way back to their homes as well as what Jim's (main character) family does at home based on his instructions and prior preparations. The story is VERY realistic on how most things would happen as society collapses and it it is every man for themselves.
The group makes it home only to find the violence they had seen on the road was already causing havoc in their community. At the end of the third book those that made it home are banding together to work as a team till the US can get the grid back up. This is very similar to EMP related books but better written and truly brings you close to all the characters and their families. Just a great first three books and hope to read further in the story soon.
Follow the characters as society collapses from an ISIS attack forcing them to make a harrowing journey across Virginia to their families left stranded. What makes Franklin Horton's books outstanding is that all his characters are ordinary people lacking any military training and their travel back home becomes dangerous with the life-death decisions encountered by the people they meet enroute. One of his main characters has accepted that this new world of anarchy while another still harbors that the world still has redeeming qualities. People die when wrong decisions are made.
You won't find yourself disappointed by reading this dystopian adventure.
If you like post apocalyptic fiction, action packed, fast paced survival stories, then this series is for you. If you like family oriented stories, then this is the book for you. Basically if you like all genres of fiction, you will want to take a look at this
Franklin's style of writing is a joy to read. He has a knack of getting people involved in the characters and keeping them involved until the very end. I highly recommend this series.
This is the only review I've ever written although Amazon pesters me mercilessly to do so. In this case I thought if these words caused someone to read the series it just might save their life.
Franklin keep up the good work and I look forward to the next book.
Thanks for the entertainment and the info,
