Publisher's Summary

Explosive new series! From Ryan Schow, best-selling author of The Last War and The Age of Embers, comes an intense new tale of strength, survival, and patriotism. Dark Days of the After puts ordinary citizens on the front line of a domestic conflict that was never supposed to happen, one that will either unify the country or break her for good...

This is not the America you know. In the near future, the Constitution is outlawed, the government is ceremonial at best and the country is about to lose her name. No one knows how this happened, or why America prostrated herself to the kind of foreign forces who would impose obedience through compliance. Resistors call the occupation “creeping death.” Those countries grabbing at the reins of power see it for what it is - a full scale invasion. 

Security engineer, Logan Cahill, is part of the underground effort to reclaim America, but when he finds a cryptic message in the world's largest server room leading to a doomsday clock, everything changes. He now knows the enemies, the weapons and the time of America’s death, right down to the minute. If he wants to survive the apocalypse, he and the feisty Skylar Madigan have to bug out fast. This won’t be easy considering the surveillance grid in place, or the armed lock-down of all major cities. 

The final defensive frontier for dedicated patriots is life on the land held by their ancestors, those men and women dug into their off-grid homes and operating a black market economy. But not everyone has what it takes to survive life outside the occupied cities, and precious few know how to defend themselves against the brutality of America’s captors.  All that is about to change...

Bullshit story

To believe the US Military would allow the multiple invasions of America without fighting back is a complete fantasy and bullshit. This is an unbelievable story. Our military is not that incompetent. If they are we deserve what we get.

So far, so good!

BEWARE- I JUST FOUND OUT THERE'S A BOOK ZERO! NEVER HEARD OF THAT B4 & BUMMED I DIDN'T KNOW THAT B4 I HEARD BOOK 1. IT WOUOD'VE HELPED MUCH MORE MAKE SENSE! WHY A BOOK ZERO? MOST PEOPLE LOOK 1ST FOR BOOK 1! BUMMER! ANYWAY....I can't seem to get th Ed next book 2 in the series! Another BUMMER! I love anything narrated by Kevin Pierce. This is a new type of apocalypse book, 1 where the Chinese Communist Party (different than the good Chinese people caught living under the evil regime) starts taking over parts of America & what it'd be like to live under Communism here in America (HORRIFIC! ). Any1 who thinks Socialism is OK to vote for here in America should read this book, always remembering Socialism is but 1 VERY small step away from EVIL Communism, which has killed more people than anything else in the entire world! Find out how evil it is in this book & pray America NEVER falls from being a Constitutional Republic!! We take our God-given freedoms way too lightly. Freedoms many, many Americans have died to protect! Highly recommend! this book!

Good but kind of odd at times

Any story plot involving the Chinese invading and taking over the United States just doesn’t seem plausible to me, but i was able to look past my cynicism related to this for the most part to enjoy the characters in the book. What I also felt was odd was the author switched (for the most part) the view of women and sex to reflect women as the ones who viewed sex as merely/mostly a physical act with, which included a woman who was a virgin and biting at the bit to loose her virginity. Then you also had the male character wanting more than just a physical connection with whatever women he sleeps with even though they makes it clear they aren’t interested in more than sex. Uh-huh. Anyway, getting past that the storyline wasn’t half bad, but decent, worthwhile listening to or reading.

the dumbest audiobook I've ever heard

go figure another dumbass book by Ryan Schowjust think it's dumb age of ember series that was the stupidest most graphic most insulting book. I'm serious dumbest book I've ever heard a audiobook that's made probably for the serial killer population it's like a Serial Killer's Demented Manifesto he has to be Not There You Mentally. I'm not trying to be disrespectful or rude I'm just saying that because I mean seriously to be able to write books like that take some serious issues mentally. I Mean To Even Have Those Types Of Thoughts Mentally To Even Be Able To Write a book like This & like The Age Of Embers Series. of course the performance by Kevin Pierce is 100% A+++ as usual because He Is The Greatest Narrator I Believe That Has Ever Lived. Out Of All The Narrator's Who Are Alive Like Kevin Pierce Is & Out Of The All The Ones Who Have Long Since Passed Away.

Outstanding story. Chinese communist takeover.

A legitimately scary premise of a CCP takeover of the west coast. life in occupied territory is hell as American's are treated like subhuman rats. luckily, a band of unlikely bravehearts does what they can to stay strong and fight back.

Not my style

I bought this series (the prequel and book 1) because Audible recommended them to me. They sounded good, but I thought they would be more of the survivalist or prepper genre. They are not. Just a story of Chinese invasion of California in a dystopian future. NOT MY STYLE!! I could barely get past the prequel.
