WOULD YOU HAVE THE MINDSET TO SURVIVE? to provide for, and defend the ones you love . . . at all costs . . . willing to confront . . . the depravity of man?
This is a true story, it just hasn't happened yet.
A new dystopian, post apocalyptic fiction series from author Bobby Akart (The Boston Brahmin series and the Prepping for Tomorrow series).
The characters depicted in The Blackout Series are fictional. The events, however, are based upon fact.
Book one of this new post-apocalyptic EMP fiction series, 36 HOURS, provided the reader a glimpse into the rapid decline of society once word of the catastrophic solar flare racing towards Earth began to spread.
Book two, ZERO HOUR, continues to follows the obstacles faced by Colton Ryman, his wife, Madison, and their teenage daughter, Alex. In 36 Hours, the Ryman family and the rest of the world was thrust into the darkness of a post-apocalyptic world. A catastrophic solar flare brought with it a blast of solar matter in the form of an EMP, leaving America in darkness.
The Rymans weren't preppers and had no concept of what prepping entails. They applied common sense, logic, and a will to survive to their decision-making as they prepared for the post apocalyptic world created by the EMP.
The dangers they face are not from the solar flare itself, but from their fellow man. Who can they count on? Who is a threat? The words of Colton Ryman's grandfather repeated in his mind ...
Never underestimate the depravity of man!
Note: This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults. Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from a devastating solar flare, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other EMP fiction books in the post-apocalyptic genre.

Wow, Bobby continues the story of Colton and his family's treacherous journey of survival. I'm amazed how well this book integrates everything I've been reading lately. This book should be in everybody's Prepper 101 class. Colton and his family are struggling through the first few weeks of the solar flare - life has changed drastically. The neighborhood is trying to unite, food and fresh water is scarce for most, gangs are knocking on their door. "Never underestimate the depravity of man." Colton states. Big decisions must be made for their future. "Having somewhere to live is home. Having someone to love is family." Bobby explains in a thrilling and exciting story with real- to- life characters the what to do's and the what not to do's in a survival situation; and how important the will to survive can be. What can I say, fantastic again.
Bobby Akart has done it again. Each book gets better and each book draws you in. The characters could be your neighbors and friends and those of you with an HOA this could be you as well. Realistic is not the word for this story. Scary is the word. This could really happen in one form or another. With North Korea being as crazy as it is and just testing another nuclear weapon we are on the brink of war and this one will be a game changer. I have said it before, Bobby’s books are definitely “how to” guides on surviving any type of collapse. Get this book and add it to your library of references on surviving a collapse event. If you have not read 36 Hours yet you will need to before starting Zero Hour.
I read 36 hours, the first book in the Blackout Series, in one sitting because I was so wrapped up in the story. Zero hour does not disappoint, and was another one that I read straight through. Bobby Akart takes you on a journey that sucks you in, and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. The subject matter of this series is a very real threat, and I believe that the way that it is presented here is more than likely exactly the way that things will go down for many people. Bobby Akart has a gift when it comes to writing in the dystopian genre, and is one of the many great authors out there. He is very thorough in his research when it comes to all his books, and has a knack for making tough subjects palatable for just about everyone. Book series like this one immerse you in a world that none of us want to think about, but by reading it you become part of the story and can relate to the characters. Questions and scenarios start to swarm through your own mind, wondering...
