"The continued story of Cassy and "the clan""
4.5 out of 5 stars
Continuing the story of Cassy and her clan, EMP Deadfall takes place at the oasis that was Cassy's prepper compound. Unfortunately, there are still people out there who want to see her and everyone that she's helped dead.
EMP Deadfall was narrated by Kevin Pierce who has narrated the rest of the series. He does a perfect job, as always with this. The production quality and storytelling by Pierce made this story even better than it already was.
There was nothing wrong with book 3, it had a lot of great story in it and even more action, but it really feels like it is being drawn out now. I know that trilogies are the new thing and writing at least three books is becoming the norm. But not all stories need three books to tell. Like I said, I still enjoyed this book a lot.
Cassy has grown on me with each book, and she has really has proven to be a great leader for the clan. Her character has easily had one of the longest arc's in the whole series. She's grown, changed, and learned throughout each one. Each book leaving her a slightly different person and character. It's really awesome that Foster and Holden can write such a dynamic character that is able to adapt and grow like that.
Overall, EMP Deadfall had a lot of elements I really enjoyed, and a few things that felt like they were re-used from the other books. The re-use and extended shelf-life of this book only knock it down .5 in my rating because I still really enjoyed it!
I was given a free copy of this book.

Didn't want it to end. written by someone who appreciates the struggles of war and survival.
The story had some interesting and original ideas. I liked the way his characters evolved over time. Hope to hear more about Jazzy in the next book.
"Too many irons in the fire."
Cassy and crew, now known as the Clan, have safely made the journey to her farm or homestead or compound depending how you look at it. She IS a prepper you know, and the farm is stocked with all the goodies any prepper worth their salt would have laid in. Our nemesis in hiding, Peter, has returned to his community to take charge, rally the troops against Cassy, and march on the Clan to relieve them of all their possessions and their lives. The invaders, believed to be North Koreans & Middle East, continue with their push inland. How this part of the plot will wind up is a mystery to me at this time. The other mysterious player called the 20s occasionally adds their two cents to the game with an eye towards disrupting the invaders, but this has yet to be exposed. Too many irons in the fire. I doubt if it’s possible to resolve all these issues by the end of this book. Looks like book four will be required. What about the Army, what are they doing? Evidently General Adam Hole has his work cut out for him. General A. Hole ha-ha! J.J. Holden must have thrown that in there for a laugh. Worked for me! Cassy and Clan continue to remake her farm into a community with rules based on fairness and justice.
Best so far if the series. I was on the fence whether to continue listening to this particular series. I'm pleased I did. Each book is better than the last.
"Too Drawn Out"
Starts out great and I was thinking that this was the best book of the series so far, but then by the last two hours the book just becomes tedious. A nuanced plot line just seemed to get lost on it's way.
As brutality ruled and trained groups of people looked on, the authors seemed to be looking to stretch the book out a little perhaps? The whole things just started to drag on and I went from being entertained to just wanting to get it over with.
Still a decent book but their effort at making the book last a certain time so that they can get on to the fourth book really hurts the overall series.
"Audible is great"
Good series, worth the read. But I really like the post apocalyptic books out, gives you much to think on.
did a great job can't wait for more books to come out keep them coming
"Started out OK, but got dumb pretty quick"
I have read the other books in the series, but this is the last one for me. I just thought the story became implausible and unrealistic.
