Publisher's Summary

What happens when all means of transportation and communication suddenly vanish? What happens when you can’t call for help? What happens when the only person you can rely on is yourself? What happens when an EMP sends Washington DC back into the stone age? Find out now with this collection of addictive EMP thrillers. 

EMP No Power

An EMP explodes over Washington DC and the world comes to screeching halt. As society falls into disarray, Harper Murphy, a skilled army quartermaster/single mother, charges headlong into the escalating chaos to save the only thing she holds dear: her son. In a world rife with chaos, how far would a mother go to protect her family? 

Hideaway

Losing power was only the beginning; now one couple must work together to survive.

James and Marla Weller are preparing for a relaxing weekend, when an unexpected blackout spreads far beyond their St. Louis suburb and starts a devastating chain reaction. But the disabled power grid was only the beginning of a national nightmare as their vehicles and cell phones won’t function either. A series of building explosions rock downtown, leading to a mandatory evacuation. 

Amid the chaos, the young couple must make a decision on where to go. A possible solution emerges when a self-proclaimed survivalist offers them refuge in his remote cabin far from the city and away from the chaos. But James and Marla soon discover that survival isn’t as clear as they think, and that escape can lead to dangers all its own.

Horrible Narration, Mediocre Story

The narration of the first three books was off cadence, accenting the wrong words in sentences and resulting in confusing and frustrating listening. Imagine overdramatizing words not needing it and missing the words that did. Mispronunciations were also part of the frustration. For example, "pyre" was pronounced like "pier", then "pyre", then "pier", again. There were no piers in the book. I suppose the writer may have misspelled the words, but other words were also mispronounced. The final book of the first series was badly edited, again contributing to the general poor listening quality. I stuck it out, hoping the second series would be better, but the crazy punching of the wrong words continued even with a different narrator.

As for the books themselves, I wanted to love them. Female protagonist who's military, EMP, and she's not a fainting female all gave me great hope. But, the narration put the nails in the coffin. I returned the books and heaved a sigh of relief. thanks

Not worth it

Neither of the stories in this box set is worth the effort. First story the husband is an idiot. The woman doesn’t make smart decisions for a military woman. The narrator does not emote for the situations as she should. She always seems to talk as if whatever character is in a constant panic.
Second story the husband is a complete idiot in the choices he makes and the wife a whiner. Again with the narrator. I stuck with it just to have noise going but wish I had returned it early on.

a military story that is cringe worthy

within the first few minutes. NCO means non commanding officer. Really? Interactions with officers and no Sir.Calling M4's assault weapons.a half hour in. The EMP theory is that it was detonated on the ground.because they didn't see it coming.Auther has no idea what he is writing about. I am asking for a refund

Extremely Painful listen

As a fan of emp disaster books, this set looked like bargain. Poorly written scenarios and laborious narrating left my ears burning. I just couldn’t finish it. It’s that horrible. Purchase at your own risk

Horrible

Really wanted to like this book, love the genre, but it's just bad. WAY over descriptive and would it kill you to do a little research. Hummers don't have M60s and if they did you wouldn't shoulder a turret mounted gun. I made it half way through chapter 15 and almost used an m60 on myself. Time I can never get back, what a waste. Zero stars

So bad I did not even finish it.

I started listening to this book and it was so unrealistic that I did not even finish it. They jumped way too deep into the story without giving any background into the characters and there take on the military was so far out of context I wonder if they even know what the military is. Would not recommend. I wish I had four thumbs so I could give this book more thumbs down.

Odd

I'm just not really keen on the narrator in general . . . can't really put my finger on why. Something about the story line is keeping me listening. Oddly compelling.

Entertaining

Never having given thought to this type of apocalyptic event, I found these books entertaining and the characters mostly believable. I guess my summation would be: entertaining.

Long, disjointed and boring

Far to long to truly bother listening to all the way without skipping. The author of this book writes in a disjointed barely descriptive way on the events that happen to the characters but flood with detail scenes that don’t require it. The first hour of the audiobook was a mess of just random pointless cliche scenes that happened just to happen. Filler and padding scenes were so blatant. The woman performing the book sounded bored with the same sort of tone constantly swapping in quality of her performance. Saying words wrong, putting no emotion into scenes or sentences that require it. Just terrible. The first experience with audible makes me glad I took advantage of a sale.

mankind's choices in a drastically changed world. Our reliance on tech removed...
Do we survive and rally, or does the power of greed corrupt?
