Give a brief description of the story.
It’s Labor Day and nobody is aware of a terrorist plot about to be launched against the country. Kyle Tait is on a flight home when a single nuclear bomb is detonated 300 miles above the heart of America. The blast, an Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP), destroys every electrical device in the country, crippling the power grid and bringing all form of transportation to a screeching halt.
2,000 miles from home, Kyle needs to get back to his wife and kids who are fighting their own struggles to survive in this new dog-eat-dog world.
What did you think the author did particularly well?
The author yanked me right into the story and kept me reading until the end. Any author who can keep me reading, is doing something right. The premise is gripping and although there were times I was hoping Kyle would toughen up and find a way to get home a little faster (especially since I knew what was happening to his family back home), the author did a great job of keeping Kyle’s character consistent. Kyle is one of the good guys through and through.
What was your favorite thing about the story?
The author did a great job of making me feel as if I was there…as if something like this could truly happen. For weeks I was afraid something like this might truly happen.
If you’re a true thrill seeker and you like riding The Drop of Doom at Six Flags, you’ll love this book!
