Rick F.
simply brilliant- must read- original and gripping- unique characters and situations- a major accomplishment

Rick Friedman
The first quality the reader will notice about this novel is the detail the author cleverly inserts. The reader will be able to picture the environment, atmosphere, and characters; he/she will understand what is going on, even though this is definitely a complicated novel. This novel is almost a typical good versus evil novel, but the author takes the concept and makes it his own. The characters are easy to get to know and the main characters are likable. There is the evil antagonist, Kraken, wh ...more
After "The Pulse," an EMP disaster has destroyed all technology on the planet, mankind has sunk into a new Dark Age. Without technology people struggled to survive, and the great cities of old were largely abandoned except by roaming packs of "urbas," wild people who will kill anything in their path. There is one united Christian church and a mysterious warrior clan. There is also an evil tyrant named Kraken, who is bent on taking over the world by any means necessary. The church and the warrior ...more
4.5 stars.A very well written,simple yet complicated plot that takes the readers to a time where earth and its people striving and survival seems almost impossible yet there’s always hope!

I like and enjoyed reading this! it took me and made me want the good guys to succeed the battle at the end.All the things written here seems all so real and about to happen which I hope and pray would not. The characters I love! some I hate with a passion which made them so effective all their emotions, dilemm

An EMP pulse has plunged earth’s civilizations into a dark age. For 500 years the Effect has lingered in the sky. But now a new age is dawning, either to terror or to hope.

Jeff W. Horton imagines a fascinating post-apocalyptic future history in The Dark Age, Survivors of the Pulse. Some of the premises may seem a little odd but they fit the form of the novel perfectly, rather like rules to an adventure board game. Forces of light and dark gather for war across the countryside. Seven items must b
500 years before an EMP took out all technology and the world descended into a new Dark Age. But now the effects of the pulse are finally wearing off and two groups (The Clansmen - warriors and The Catholic Church) are looking for pieces of a map which will lead the way to find The mysterious Oracle which is prophesied to begin the new Golden Age. However, if this power ends up in the wrong hands like the villianous Kraken, it could make the Dark Age seem wonderful in comparison.

First things first, I received a free copy of this book by the author (via group Shutup and Read) for a fair and honest review. However, I do not know the author personally.

I give this book three stars because it was well written, whether or not I agree with the authors spiritual views. I think three stars is an average read.

In the year 2025 a massive solar flare erupts sending an EMP pulse so strong as to totally destroy life as we know it.
500 years in the future, the world lives

This is more of a 3.5...I am rating this book as 3.5 stars because it didn't completely hold my attention. I wanted to know what happened in the end, but I wasn't sure I wanted to sit there and actually read it. However, I would have loved loved to sit and watch this as a movie!!!!

The Story
Five-hundred years ago the sun sent out an EMP and that energy got trapped in the Earth's magnetic field causing all electrical equipment to quit working and not come back online again. The world is now living
Couldn't finish this one...only made it through the first 6 chapters. I love a good dystopian novel, so I was looking forward to this read. Unfortunately, the religious element in this book was way too strong for my tastes. I don't mind an occasional Biblical reference here and there, or having the faith/spirituality of the characters brought in as character-building aspects of their personalities. But religion is an integral part of the plot of this book, and I found myself feeling uncomfortabl ...more

The Dark Age was well-written and seemed well-plotted, but isn't a genre I feel particularly engaged by, so while it was very readable, I didn't love it. This could be purely because it isn't the type of story I normally enjoy. If you like epic level post-apocalyptic stories, this one might do you just fine.
An extremely thought provoking journey filled with impressive action scenes, entertaining characters, and an interesting landscape to wrap the readers mind around.
