Publisher's Summary

Cyber armageddon has come. America will not survive!

Cyber-security analyst Kate McCarthy knows something ominous is about to happen in the US banking system. She has a place to go if things get hectic, but it’s far from the perfect retreat. 

When a new breed of computer virus takes down America’s financial network, chaos and violence erupt. Access to cash disappears and credit cards become worthless. Desperate consumers are left with no means to purchase food, fuel, and basic necessities. Society melts down instantly and the threat of starvation brings out the absolute worst humanity has to offer. 

In the midst of the mayhem, Kate will face a post-apocalyptic nightmare that she never could have imagined. Her only reward for survival is to live another day in the gruesome new reality which has eradicated the world she once knew. 

As with all works by Mark Goodwin, this book contains no profanity and no embarrassing sex scenes. However, if you're offended by conservative principles and references to Scripture, this book might not be for you.

Realistic story, good character development, superb narration

I had a lot of farm work to do this week, so I bought the Audible box set of Cyber Armageddon by Mark Goodwin, pulled on my work boots, eye protection, and gloves, put in my earbuds, pressed “play,” and went to work while Stacy Glemboski captured my rapt attention with her energetic and convincing narration! Often in this genre there are aggravating grammatical errors, firearms technical misinformation, and a plethora of frustrating literary gaffes forcing the reader/listener to just “overlook it for now and try to get through the story.” Not so with ANYTHING Mark Goodwin writes. This is a tightly woven, well developed, cleanly edited story that held my attention like Super Glue while I felled trees, dug holes, and installed rain gutters. Kate, Gavin, and Annoying but lovable Mr Pritchard, won my heart, and I grew to really despise Boyd, Vince, and The (fake) “Reverend.” Goodwin’s character development made these actors as real as the blisters on my hands. I could “feel” them. I’ve read or listened to well over 100 apocalypse books in the past 18 months, including ALL of Goodwin’s other books. This series is among his best, and surely among the best I’ve ever read anytime. Pastor Ron

Apocalyptic Candy

Don't expect a deep dive into cyber threats we face today, or the technology behind it. I guess you could read/listen to Lights Out by Ted Koppel if you want to understand the potential threats we face. No, this series simply uses that premise to kick start the proverbial race to prepare, fortify and defend. There's not much difference between this series and the other series by Mark Goodwin. They all start with a catastrophic event which leads to a small group of people trying to survive the aftermath. The good guys are usually very good and the bad guys are usually very bad. There's usually plenty of violence but it's treated like a movie script. A lot of flash and bang but without lasting emotional consequence. This isn't a bad series as long as you understand that you're investing your time into an apocalyptic adrenaline rush and not dissertation into practical survival skills. It can be an entertaining escape, and one that may further help you consider the fragile world we live in - and move you to prepare. I appreciate the underlying Christian theme which gives hope, comfort and direction in times of trouble. Knowing and trusting in Christ is the greatest prep anyone can make.

Should be tagged as Christian Fiction

I initially enjoyed the series until it devolved into preachy bible thumping. I can't even stomach to finish the second 'book'.

Engaging story beginning to end!

As with other titles by Mr. Goodwin, this set was a riveting adventure start to end. I especially appreciate the author's restraint from offensive language and unnecessarily descriptive sex scenes that seem to bombard so much of today's movies and books. The ability to write an engaging story without the worldly gratuity that infects our media is a gift from God. I've read/listened to many post-apocalyptic novels, and I must say that Mark is definitely one of my most favorite authors. His titles are something that you won't be embarrassed for your young adolescent children to enjoy as well. God bless you Mr. Goodwin, and I look forward to many more titles to come!

Hmmmmm...

I have read (and listened) to a plethora of “post apocalyptic” novels from many authors, this has to be top 3!! It’s realistic with the amount of loss an individual can endure and still be able to survive and almost thrive afterward.

*/sigh*

I wanted to like it, as there is a lack of Christian authors--but this was preachy and all action. The 7 cows books were much better. This one the timeline was all wrong. People miraculously able to get shot and climb through a window days later. The author's views are more mainstream christian than ever and don't leave much room to learn. I wish Christian's were open to listen instead of being so set in their ways. I hope Mark still has room to read and gain more understanding.

Good Story...Hints of Antifa

Let me preface by saying how much Mark Goodwin's work is a breath of fresh air. From a Christian perspective, it's so refreshing to listen to a book that is clean and where each chapter begins with scripture. That is amazing. Now, for the story. Sometimes these get repetitive. One interesting note though, when society melts down in this book, Antifa like punks start in on those trying to get away. Sound familiar? For an absolute Antifa play by play one need only read Ava's Crucible. It's uncanny how much it sounds like the summer of 2020. Stacey Glemboski does a great job narrating here, since the main character is a female. She's no Kevin Pierce though. And for those who love listening to Kevin more than anyone else who narrates, it's hard to get used to someone else. But her voice and style is stellar. She makes it her own and does a fantastic job. All in all, this is one more excellent entry in Mark Goodwin's ever growing collection.

I feel beaten with a Bible.

Narrator was great, story was OK, hard to finish because Bible thumping was beyond excessive.

Thought Provoking

As our society becomes more dependent on technology for even the simplest tasks, this series will make you wonder if that is really a good idea. I remember my mother telling me she didn't need to worry about some cyber thief stealing her information because she didn't have a computer. I tried to explain to her that her bank, credit cards, social security information, and even mortgage was on a digital data base which could not only be hacked, but brought down. Mom was a depression era baby, she never understood the consequence of digital convenience. She is now in Glory where our true treasures are safe.
