I voluntarily offered to review this book with no obligations and my opinions are honest!
It was a great book!
This is another post-apocalyptic survival series by this author.
it reminds me of "Walking Dead." Loved the show!
This is Vince and his son Cy journey into this post-apocalyptic world.
Loved the characters + the storytelling!
It has all the ingredients that you need for a great book!
I can't wait for the next book in this series.

Having read and enjoyed this author's "Dark Road" series and, in particular, liking the people of Cloverdale there, I was excited to read this book. Vince is a character that is easy to like very quickly. He is a decent man who is very capable and thoughtful. Whereas the "Dark Road" main characters were in a remote area when the EMPs were detonated, the characters in this novel are much closer to the event. However, it left me confused as to whether it was an actual nuclear bomb attack or the Hi ...more

Not everyone responds the same to a crisis.

This is the first book in a mini-series. As it is post-apocalyptic in nature, there is some violence.

Vince Walker, known as Major to many in his small town, is happy that his grown son wants to spend time with him. The visit is far from what either of them imagined as the world they knew literally comes crashing down around them.

I really enjoyed seeing the different perspectives of the main characters. It made me realize that you can prepare for some th

Again, so realistic!

So far as I know, no one has been through more than a simulated EMP. No one knows what will happen for sure. To me, though, Bruno Miller's stories relate as closely to factual as is possible. Cloverdale is a small town that has almost burned to the ground and they are having to deal with looters and murderers. It's definitely worth reading. I recommend it without reservation.

Did not enjoy this book

I bought this book with high hopes after enjoying the previous series by the author, but sadly I'm feeling a little bit let down after finishing the book. There is not anything I can put my finger on but it just didn't enjoy the story, and for some reason I couldn't identity with the characters and for me that is a big part of every book that I read. If I don't find the characters interesting the nine times out of ten I struggle with the book.

I don't understand what he's thinking staying by businesses. They needed to go to Mary's or his house after emptying the garage. Mary has food after all. Take everything you can get hold of and go! Don't mess with the looters. One of them is already dead! Don't take a chance on losing anyone else. Stupid I just want to shake Vince! I will continue the series since I like Bruno Miller

Surviving The EMP

Vince is a retired military officer on his way to met his grown son at the airport. When he and son Cy are at the airport, the unthinkable happens. Vince and By do make their way back to Cloverdale but not without incidents. This post apocalyptic novel is the beginning of anew series by this author and can be read as a standalone. A novel about every day people surfing under unusual circumstances.

A great start to a new series. Mr. Miller consistently tells a great story. He obviously is passionate about his topic and puts q great deal of research into each book. Another plus, he either pays close attention to spelling and grammar (or has a heck of a proofreader, lol).

Good start

Good Start for a good story. Looking forward to the next installment.
Characters are just normal people in a bad situation and struggling to figure out what to do so to survive.

This was interesting to read, more realistic than most. It actually made me think about today's political chaos and how regular American citizens would behave. Looking forward to next book.

Great as always. Could have used a little less repeated descriptions and such, but not enough to lose a star. Wish the next book was available!

Thanks for the adventure Mr. Bruno Miller! I get a little afraid reading books about EMPs because I know they are very possible.

Great 👍story line.

Very good people line. Also so much compassion. Not just the main character but also the other survivors. A very gripping story so far.
