More I read more I was hooked.

After seeing this series promoted on Facebook, I had a listen. This is my first time experiencing McDermotts writing and I can now say I will be back for more.

Many varying characters to love and hate, cheer for and cry with should the events require it.

I appreciated the gritty realness if the situation and the human responses by the differing groups in the story. It helped make the adventure relatable and added realism to the narrative.

Best quote (from memory) - I cant be bought but I can be rented, especially if there is coffee involved.

Best one liners goes to Torres (aka the Magician)

In the end I had to listen at 1.5speed to hear as much as I could each sessions (really highlighted the fight scenes by doing this too)

Perfect story

Great story with lots of characters whose stories cleverly intertwine with one another. Good performance from Kevin Pierce however there were time it was hard to distinguish between the character’s voice. This is a must listen!

I didn't want this series to end

McDermott creates a (mostly) realistic and action packed trilogy that just leaves you wanting more...

I would have given it 5 stars but for the "f" bomb

I loved the storyline...hated the f bombs. You are such a good writer, why do you feel the need?

OUTSTANDING

Great books. I really like how practical and realistic these books are. it will open your eyes as far as being prepared. I have been a prepper/ survivalist for many years. my eyes where opened after my service in the Marines. I saw many countries and thanked God I was born in America. I also learned just how vulnerable we are in our country.

Worth the credit!

I’m a big fan of post-apocalyptic books. This one is in my top 5. One Second After is still my number 1. Kevin Pierce did another amazing performance.

Good Story, Okay Writing, Lackluster Performance

The overall story was well thought out and the wrap up of the trilogy shows that as all the pieces fall into place. It's clear that McDermott knows his way around ships and boats and all manner of water vessel.

Some of the side characters were written a bit too stereotypical, however. My confidence in the story faded whenever those characters where on the page. Much as it did every time someone survived a situation of otherwise certain doom. This tale seems to follow the luckiest people in the whole event. After a while, it became a bit boring as they narrowly escaped time and again, due either to their enemies' incompetence, a cunning and convenient advantage, or just plain luck.

The performance, unfortunately, just didn't cut it for me. No doubt, Kevin Pierce is excellent for certain books, but he seems to lack the range to bring a story with this many characters to life without them all sounding the same. His easy southern drawl felt particularly out of place while reading for characters from New England and his delivery with some of the aforementioned stereotypical side characters felt quite uncomfortable, not due to what he had to say, but in the way he said it.

As a whole, I enjoyed the story and found it to be an interesting topic that I don't see touched on very often. the realism and attention to detail for certain thing the author clearly knows well was refreshing, but some of the characters and events felt flat and uninspired and the performance regularly drew me out of the story.

Humans can be real pigs

I found it difficult to keep the many characters straight, but enjoyed the whole trilogy completely. In just days, half of humanity loses its civilization, reverting to our basest, most horrible possible selves. The other half maintain themselves and seek to protect and defend.

The story tells of varied groups of people and their struggles after the loss of all power across the USA. Their losses and successes are realistic and very very human. Gotta love those Cajuns.

Kevin Pierce has a great voice, but not all the characters are distinguishably different. Nevertheless, it was pleasant to listen to, and captivating to "read."

Battle skirmishes and not much else

I'm a sucker for really long books and this one was recommended by a few reviewers who liked Commune which I did as well (despite its tendency to veer into being a gun manual for the post apocalypse). But this book is just a relentless series of battle manuvers and preparation for more battles between good guys and bad guys. There is no character development beyond stereotyping of said good guys and bad guys (good guys have families they care about, bad guys are stupid and have zero morals). Also there are very few female characters written in at all which for me is a major shortcoming.
I am much more interested in stories of how people would live and survive in a post apocalyptic world than how they are going to fight with each other. I listened far too long waiting for something interesting to develop, or even just a character I could care about to emerge. I finally realized it's not going to happen. I'll be returning this one.

Same thing over and over and over and over....

If you like 30 hours of very similar southern flavored pseudo military type encounters with a sprinkling of machismo and a dab of rape this is your book.

If you like well developed characters, good dialog, and an interesting plot stay far far away from this book.

My first, but not my last McDermott

I got the audible trilogy at a special rate, hoping it would be good enough to help pass some time at work. Being narrated by Kevin Pierce was a huge incentive. WOW! What a thrilling story it was. I found myself pleading for the survival of some characters and the slow painful demise of others. In the end... well, you will have to find out for yourself.

Outstanding Post Apocolyptic Trilogy!

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. Great character development, and several developing stories going on at the same time. Narration was outstanding. No zombies! I enjoyed this as much as the Commune series, which I didn't think was possible.
