Publisher's Summary

He hated the rules until the power grid failed.
 

Tyler Ford is a tour guide, a brother, and the son of a prepper from Whitefish, Montana. Robbed of a childhood and forced to learn his father’s stringent rules of survival for every kind of apocalypse, he couldn’t wait to leave home, but when an EMP obliterates the United States electrical grid, takes out communication and stalls vehicles, Tyler must face the past and remember what he taught him if he hopes to make it out of Vegas alive.
 

When chaos erupts, will you know the rules to survive?
 

Erika Lyons just wanted an evening away from the hectic world of hotel management but she got more than she expected. There’s only one thing worse than a bad date, that’s relying on them to keep you alive. Demanding guests were a challenge, desperate ones, pure hell. As food stops being delivered, vehicles clog up the streets, and society begins to unravel, sin city could be the most dangerous place in America.
 

In a world without power, fighting to stay alive may be the only rule that matters.
 

With no warning, no communication, and planes falling out of the sky, the Ford’s may be the only ones who know what it takes to thrive. Can Tyler, and two ordinary strangers survive the perilous journey home to Montana? Can the Ford family hold it together long enough to push back the tide of violence, looters and roving gangs? And will they help the community survive as the world is thrown into darkness?
 

Rules of Survival is book one in Survival Rules, a post-apocalyptic EMP thriller series following the Ford family and their community as they fight to survive after an EMP destroys the nation’s power grid.

Talk about a bad first date!

Rules of Survival is the first book in a new post-apocalyptic survival series. Written by Jack Hunt, who is no stranger to the genre, this book hits all the beats I've come to expect from the genre: multiple groups of survivors-some preppers, some regular 'unprepared' folks, with the main characters attempting to reach somewhere 'safe' as society begins to break down around them. The story starts in Vegas with the book's main protagonist, Tyler, out on a first date that does not go well and then gets even worse when there is an EMP attack, throwing the city into absolute chaos. For the most part I really enjoyed the cast of characters, especially Tyler's date Erika, and the plane full of felons instantly had me thinking of the movie Con Air. It's a fun story with plenty of action. I'm definitely interested to see what happens next to Tyler and his friends. and Miles Meili does a really good job with the narration.

I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

too short

Much shorter than I prefer, there is room for so much more and I usually require at least 9-10 hours worth for the cost, especially considering all the different POVs, but it's certainly a well written and interesting plot. Worth the read, and considering the narrator worth the listen, but still wish it were longer.

Amazing narration

The narrator did an amazing job with this book. It made the story so much better. With different voices for each character and the proper emotion for each scene. Two thumbs up

I wish this book was longer.

I feel like the action and development is good. however the book was over before long and it had just started getting interesting.

Realistic Survival Fiction

I received a review copy of this audiobook.

I really enjoyed this story. I've enjoyed zombie fiction in the past, but more in spite of the zombies than because of them. This story has basically all that I like from those without the absurdity of undead. I'm not enough of an expert to assess realism in the techniques invoked, but it holds up to my layman's eye.

Underwhelmed

Narrator was great, but the story feels like it just didn't go anywhere worth following.

Good premise, but underwhelming execution.

EMP apocalyptic fiction, .... who knows?

When, not if will it happen?
Although I struggled at first with what reminded me of a B movie script I began thinking. If you ever enjoyed a old western movie this book has many similarities. imagine the sheriff, his prisoner and a rich spoiled woman as the only survivors of a stage holdup. Now, they have to make it to civilization through Indian territory. When they get there, after many trials and tribulations they find a different kind of problem in that town.
I look forward to future books you will too.

Good Book

This book is a good intro to a new series. This is the story of two brothers and their efforts to get back together. Hopefully the rest of the series is as good as this one. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Wicked

EMP, the apocalypse, end of humanity as we know it. imagine being in the first date from hell when the world falls apart. multiply that by 1000 then you may realize what the characters go through. it's a great book to listen to. if you're a fan of apocalypse this one is for you.

Great 1st Installment

Back stories and character building masterfully woven together in this 1st instalment to leave me on the edge of my seat ready and buzzing for both no.2. Love each character, not a one I don't want to go on a journey with. I love the character voices of the narrator, he does a wonderful job!!! Fab all round really can't fault it with lots of prepping tip to boot!
