Publisher's Summary

The news is full of disturbing events today. There's war and rumors of war. There's the false recovery of the economy. Faith in the US economy is extremely low. Foreign banks have either slowed their purchases of Treasury Bonds or, in a few cases, begun unloading them. We have a current election that is rife with corruption, extreme partisanship, and outright fraud. It would appear the left in the country is ready to do about anything to see their candidate elected. While this is very concerning today, what does it mean to the election process as a whole? What will the next one look like? Does anyone believe they will actually improve? Or will the next batters up to the ultimate home plate simply make it even worse, take it even further down the rabbit hole?

In reality, it matters not who wins. They can be there for only eight years. But the election sets the precedent for the next one, and the next one will push the limits even further, if there is one.

We've all heard of the spooky bank holiday. This sort of thing usually happens on a weekend, and on Monday morning you simply cannot access your account. You have no access to your money. Don't think it can happen? Neither did the people of Greece. Or Germany when they were limited to 50 euros a day. What would you do? Do you keep cash on hand? Do you trust your bank? If you put $20,000 into the bank and then ask for $10,000 back, you have to fill out forms and justify your need for it. Then they tell the government about it, and you face further sanctions. Here in America, we think we're free. Well, we are currently listed as number 20 on the scale of freedom. Think about that. Number 20! Chile is ahead of us! But we have our guns, and all of those other countries don't. And indeed we do, for now. But what if they were to take those away? What do we do then? And before you say you would take to the streets and fight back, think for a minute what that really means. Then watch a few videos on Syria or Ukraine. It's all fun and games until someone puts a tank main-gun round through your house. What follows is just one idea of what this could look like. I'm not saying this is the way it would go. It's just some thoughts on it. On how people could act. What the government may do in response and how people might respond in turn.

Great new saga!

I have listened to all of the survivor series by this author and narrator. It took a bit to get into this book and get on board with the direction it was going. This is a different view on the collapse of our nation but just as with the "Home" series it is a viable and surreal tale of what our reality could easily become. Love the narrator- I hope Duke Fontaine continues to represent this author's voice.

Give me a reason to care about these people.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The main character, Daniel, seemed to be the least developed of an entire group of underdeveloped characters. Had I been part of this group, I would have left out of sheer boredom.

What could A. American have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Character development, likable and/or interesting characters, and a more compelling story.

Which character – as performed by Duke Fontaine – was your favorite?

Gene, I suppose, as he was the most skillful of the group.

Do you think Cry Havoc needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, I don't see this one going anywhere. I hope he doesn't try to make a series out of it. It just feels like the author was trying to make a book out of a story that just wasn't there.

Any additional comments?

I read most of the Going Home series, and most of those books were better than this one. If I had to buy it again, I wouldn't.

New perspective for SHTF story

Still listening to the Home series, still enjoying them. That said, this is a completely different kind of story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Is it the best book I have listened to this year, no, but it was good enough to listen to twice, and I will listen to it again later. There is good information to be had, if you pay attention, love one of the storage ideas for instance. If you like A. American, you should like this audio book, and like another reviewer said, Duke Fontaine could make a grocery list sound good.

a weird reading style

I liked the story well enough, and learned a few tidbits, but the narrator got on my nerves. Or maybe he's a non-native speaker? Just two examples:
1) He tended to acCENT the wrong syLABle, saying things like "moving-BLANkets" were on the inside of a truck. Hmmmm... So some sort of curtain thing that billowed in the breeze? someone was shaking crumbs out of the blankets? OH! He meant MOVing blankets, i.e. blankets you'd use for protecting furniture during a move.
2) He also inserted pauses in crazy places like between two adjectives, which combined, meant one description, like "a small . . diameter-tree". Eh? what's a diameter-tree?
You get my drift. If things like this don't drive you crazy, you may well like this book.

Creative EOTWAWKI

I quit writing reviews on EOTWAWKI books... got tired of saying negative things. That said the narration and audio was rough... but it was a clever and creative situation with a fresh perspective and interesting mix of characters. I enjoyed it. There is obviously a second book coming... but it wasn't an annoying cliff hanger and was long enough that I didn't feel cheated out of a credit. Nice work Mr. AA. I also really enjoyed The Dog Star and Sunfall recently, so there have been some better offerings in the EOTWAWKI library.

Finally A New Storyline

A. American has created a believable, fresh, storyline! This is a story that is creative and realistic. Without giving the story away, this story takes the listener down a new path. This is not just another cookie cutter story with the names and places changed. I think this story will appeal to a wider group of listeners too. The narrator did a great job of keeping your interest and the development of each character. Well worth the credit! Looking forward to more stories like this!

Smart, Everyday people in an economic disaster

Would you listen to Cry Havoc again? Why?

Duke Fontaine is an excellent performer. Its a very contemporary story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Too hard to pick one, it is an ensemble cast.

What about Duke Fontaine’s performance did you like?

His characterizations are well crafted

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, It made me think which is much more important than a laugh or cry.

Any additional comments?

A very atypical post apocalyptic story. Normal people with a preparedness tilt, not super heros or six-gun toters. Real people from many walks of life, A great story from a gifted author.

Missed opportunity

If you think Fox News and Info Wars are real news and blindly hate liberals this is for you. The strawmen of liberals taking your guns and social justice warriors working with the "Deep State" and with the corrupt Democrats in government is driven from the very start. This is ironic when it is currently the other side in power, working with other countries to undermine America and show record levels of corruption, pay to play and attacking allies.
The narration is great as usual and a highlight of these books. Having read all the Survivalist series, which are great, so far this seems like a copy and paste job with the characters been far too similar to previous books, even down to the put on English accent like Dalton. It was a missed opportunity, there was no need to go total tinfoil hat with conspiracies that would make Alex Jones shake his head. A financial collapse is a very real threat and doesn't need a ludicrous reason to happen and constant partisan nonsense made it very hard to palate.
I know most preppers come from one side of the aisle but there is no need to play to your base, it adds nothing to the story. Maybe in the next book we might get more of the gear and gun porn we like and less of the DHS and limp wristed liberals are evil narrative.

Another great informative story from A.American

I enjoyed the survivalist series & was hoping that this would be as good. It is. Lots of good info if you listen carefully. The only things that spoilt it a little were that "Daniel" is a bit slow on the uptake & a bit more character history would be good. I am happy to recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how our world may change in time
