I'm enjoying John Hartness' stories. It doesn't hurt that we both live in NC and his descriptions are accurate. ( )

The entire U.S. has been left without a means of communication with the outside world. Cell phones, televisions, practically everything that possesses a computer chip has been wiped out because of a sudden electromagnetic pulse attack. Nothing works and people are starting to worry as to what this could mean.

Sneaking out of school moments after the attack occurs, Christin Kinney, her brother, and his best friend find themselves running towards the mountains of Georgia in hopes of weathering the disaster. Unsure of how their mother is doing or her current whereabouts, seeking safety is their only option.

Ensconced within their grandfather's cabin, the children realize that their safety is not guaranteed. They have the only working vehicle, something the residents of Mountain City are keen to obtain. Realizing that they must band together to keep what is rightfully theirs, they soon discover that they possess extra-ordinary powers that they can't explain. Powers that prove to help them in their quest for survival.

As they struggle to make use of their super powers, the children agree that they'll need to return to civilization once it's possible to do so. Acquiring several others along the way, they band together in keeping one another alive.

The realization that everything has truly changed is apparent everywhere they go. Yet rampant wars and angry masses do not deter them from achieving their goal. Relying on their powers, they know that it's their only means to survive the new and completely unknown world that they now live in.

I very much enjoyed this book. John was able to put together such a vivid picture of what the world would be like if such a thing were to ever happen, thus leaving the world without power or communication. Imagine the world being forced to go back to its roots because of this before the existence of electricity and electronics. I'm looking forward to the next book in the trilogy. Genesis (Return To Eden) is a definite must-read! ( )
