Publisher's Summary

The biggest solar flare since the 1859 Carrington Event is about to bring the world to its knees.

When a huge plasma ejection from the sun hits the Earth's atmosphere, the resulting EMP pulse fries electricity grids and disables fragile electronics. Transmission wires melt, transformers explode and modern vehicles cease working. In less than a minute, the world is taken back two centuries.

Sergeant Rick Nolan is in Syria on a covert ops mission against ISIS. When the solar storm wipes out his communications and his air cover, he and his team find themselves on the same level as the enemy that surrounds them. Caught in a desperate fight for survival, Rick thinks about his wife and children and wonders how he'll ever get home to them.

Lauren Nolan is attending a seminar in New York when the blackout hits and the transportation system grinds to a halt. Trapped in the panic that envelops the metropolis, Ellen worries for her two children, 500 miles away in North Carolina. Unable to get word to them and stuck on her own, she needs to find a way back before it's too late.

Twelve year old Josh Nolan is in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his grandparents. Witnessing society's terrifying collapse as water pumps fail, food runs short and the law ceases to exist, he has to do what he can to protect his little sister.

Seven year old Lizzy Nolan can't understand what's happening. Frightened and bewildered, she only wants to know one thing: When are Mom and Dad coming home?

    "Very good book"

    Very good story and characters. It was slow through parts at the beginning and too fast at the ending. Overall one of the best Post EMP books.

    Story
    "To those who have and have not."

    The story rotates through several sub-plots of survivors dealing with the apocalypse in different ways. In this tale we study the Nolan family as they deal with the worst solar storm in history. Rick the father and soldier in Syria struggling to make his way home, Lauren the wife of Rick stranded in New York at a seminar and left at home to provide for the children, 12 yr. old Josh the young boy who sees much too much and is growing up much too fast, 7 yr. old Lizzy Josh’s sister, and grandma who is taking care of the kids while Lauren is gone as best she can. Although we have no zombies to deal with we do have the ever present ruffians who always surface in a crisis. There seems to be basically two types of people, those who are only trying to protect their own and what they have and then those who don’t have enough and will take what you have. This is the common theme that runs through this genre of books. The writing is well done, the characters well developed and likable especially Josh. There is a follow-up book Solar Winter, but I don’t believe it has been released yet.

    Story
    "Beginning good, midway ok, end disappointing"

    Beginning description of how an EMP or solar flare would destroy various specific items very good and the only explanation I have heard of exactly what could happen. Beginning also not just another military story, but very thought provoking. Beginning very promising for a good story.

    Mid way - mother's attempts to get home and joining with another woman and her young son ok, then devolved into unpleasant storyline.

    End - very disappointing, not a prepper story, just icky. Kept listening hoping it would get better as the beginning was so promising, but it did not.
