One day the lights will go out. How prepared are you?
An enormous coronal mass ejection engulfs the world, destroying electrical grids and causing secondary fires to break out in every major city. Millions die in the first few hours, and even those who are most prepared are caught unawares. Trapped in the firestorm raging across Chicago, Leonard will stop at nothing to find his family while his wife and son struggle to stay alive in the chaos.
When a CME that dwarfs the Carrington Event engulfs the world, Len – a businessman with next to zero survival training and experience – sets off to find his wife and child. Emerging out of the heart of Chicago, he will face dangers of all types and experience both the heights and depths of humanity. His survival depends solely on his ability to learn on the fly in this twisted new hellscape of a world.
From the #1 best-selling post-apocalyptic author Mike Kraus and author E.S. Richards comes a fresh new take on the EMP/CME story. With characters that are learning how to survive as they go – and finding some unlikely teachers along the way – they represent the true “everyday person” who isn’t a hardcore prepper or survivalist, something unique and exciting in this genre.
