** spoiler alert ** Another take on the Dystopian catastrophe genre. Electrical power disappears leaving our chief character to survive which he initially does by killing everyone he comes across, unless they are little old ladies or recent attractive widows. I felt the story got lost in the middle and its blend of murder dressed up as killing cowards to survive mixed with ghost story loses some of the intensity. It turns into oh look another bunch of male rapists who terrorise the neighbourhood but can't shoot as well as our graphic artist hero.

Then for the last third it turns into a typical God and Christianity right to bear arms whilst conveniently killing anyone in his way. Of course he survives tremendous injuries e.g. one moment he has a broken wrist then when it is plastered buy a convenient doctor he gets told it will be 4 weeks before the bone will be set yet 2 days later he is fit and killing people again. For some reason he blows up a house in some psychotic episode, a house he has spent a good part of the book trying to get to because it's so precious to him. A couple of days later he is sane and welcomed by a family group of survivors who all think like him but welcome him with open arms even though he hasn't seen them for years.

On the good side the descriptions of societal collapse are convincing even if it's dressed up in some cross between environmentalism, mother nature then the bad guy is a preacher who despite twenty plus men can't kill the lone hero.

A good start to the story an average middle then just silliness.

Have not ready any Eric Norton before,but I totally enjoyed this book. Ok it was a little macho at times, and scary that so much nastiness and cruelty was around, but it was believable. The storms and weather and lack of electricity all add to a proper realistic apocolyptic story. Loved it sad to finish.

Written in the style of Steven King and Dean Koontz on steroids! Excellent concept woven into a gripping story. It had me from the first paragraph. Intricately woven storytelling at its finest and a thoroughly satisfying read. I'm not going to give any spoilers, you must read this exceptionally well crafted masterpiece yourself. This concept team and author are a match made in heaven ( pardon the pun )

I found this book did take a little time to get into, but after the first chapter it was good.
I think it could easily have been made into two books by taking the main character on more adventures, some parts were a bit predictable but all in all well worth a read .

This is a very readable novel, with a very plausible post-apocalyptic scenario; the World has turned in on itself and the things we thought were ours forever have ceased to be. Terrifying weather conditions and their accompanying powerful impulses have knocked out every modern device that relies on electrical power. Panic and mayhem ensue as society begins to break down. The protagonist, a man in mourning for a lost love, sets off on a journey to find a place of safety outside of the city, relying on his wits and a seemingly endless knowledge of firearms and survival techniques. He's been planning his survival in the event of such a scenario for about 5 years. His single-mindedness has turned him into a sort of Rambo character with added brains and guile, but for me, it was a little far-fetched; he easily defeats every bad person who threatens to prevent him reaching his ultimate goal, but he has a delicate, softer side that enables him to see and interact with spectral visions of his lost love and others who cross his path and who die helping him to survive. The two sides of him are slightly at odds with each other, and I couldn't work out whether or not I liked the he-man hero or the softy aesthete (he's an author) best. On the whole, I liked the story for its plausibility, the style in which it is written and the development of the additional characters. I would read more by this author.

I've read a lot of post apocalyptic books and generally the themes are all the same. This one however, freshens up the genre. Bringing a touch of reality, supported by internal dialogue (not monologue!) with a spectacular ending this book had me smiling, in places, depressed in others and content that all was as it should be in the end.
Highly recommended.

Started of really well liked it up to a point the main character is clearly suffering emotional pain to the point of having conversations with the dead this part was great and kept my attention then the author loses and makes the main characters actions unbelievable one such action he ties up two men at gun point sticks a gun in one of there mouths accuses them of horrid crimes says he's gonna kill them because he knows there bad cause he can see it in there eyes, realises he wrong says sorry then there all mates ?!? Sorry that's just not how people interact I tried to let that go but then he kills some guys and then tortured another because he happens to have scratches on bis neck turns out threats all the evidence this guy needs

enjoyed the story, and premise that mother nature kicks back.....BUT, not a 5 stars for me......the main character should really have been dead half-way-through the book.....just a little too much belief suspension required......

But still worth the money for entertainment value
