A Desperate Journey In a World Gone Insane When a massive solar flare fries the electrical grid, Captain Jordan Hughes' problems are just starting. Stranded far from home with a now-priceless cargo of fuel and a restless crew, Hughes weighs his options as violence worsens ashore and the world crumbles around the secure little world of his ship, the Pecos Trader. 'Wait and see, ' is not an option. Hughes has to get his ship and crew home, but FEMA arrives with other plans. Resisting the demands of an increasingly corrupt and self-serving federal bureaucracy, Hughes leads a ragtag band of sailors, preppers, and dissident military personnel on an incredible voyage to reunite them all with home and family - only to find their real journey is just beginning. COMMENTS FROM READER REVIEWS (Read full reviews below) Post-apocalyptic fiction is my genre of choice. McDermott gives us a new setting, filled with heroic ship captains, the Coast Guard, and battles on rivers. I look forward to his sequel. -- A. Carroll - 5 Stars A home run While not usually a fan of post apocalyptic fiction, I found the entire scenario very believable. -- Eric Groody - 5 Stars I'm hooked on post apocalyptic fiction and this is by FAR the best I've read recently. -- Steven Wigdzinski - 5 Stars Post-apocalyptic fiction done well is a true pleasure. I enjoyed every page and anxiously await the next installment. -- Finback - 5 Stars One of the better post apocalyptic novels around, with a believable cast of characters and solid plot and sub-plots. The details are well supported and accurate. It makes the reader want more. -- David Tarasevich - 5 Stars A brilliant opening salvo in McDermott's first foray into post apocalyptic fiction. A page turner. -- TriggersMate - 5 Stars This book tells the story of the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI). No zombies, aliens, or plagues. A massive solar storm causes the world's power grid to overload and ... lights out ... permanently. I've only read one other "end of the world" book that I found as believable and that was One Second After. -- F. New - 5 Stars I signed up for Kindle Unlimited to access more post-apocalyptic, dystopian fiction. McDermott delivers a well-written, well-researched, and well-paced entry for the genre. I was very appreciative to find deft literary craftsmanship in a Kindle Unlimited post-apocalyptic novel, and I don't mean a simple lack of typos. Sentence structure, style, and diction all make this novel seem written by a pro. -- Kimw - 4 Stars There are a fair number of post-apocalyptic novels; many with zombies, some without. Mr McDermott avoids the worst of the cliches, to bring us a page-turner with several separate, interwoven threads, all involving very much alive characters. -- Andrew Heenan - 5 Stars I'm a survivalist fiction fan. Can't wait for the sequel. -- Love to Read in ME - 5 Stars
