Availability: Ready to download

Imagine traveling through a world determined to stop you. A massive solar storm induced EMP of apocalyptic proportions knocks out power and fries circuits for most of the planet. Transportation, communications, and constraints on human nature are gone. Within hours, store shelves are empty; gangs and desperate people with guns rampage. Survival for those ill-equipped and un Imagine traveling through a world determined to stop you. A massive solar storm induced EMP of apocalyptic proportions knocks out power and fries circuits for most of the planet. Transportation, communications, and constraints on human nature are gone. Within hours, store shelves are empty; gangs and desperate people with guns rampage. Survival for those ill-equipped and unprepared will be short-lived. This will be the new normal for many months, possibly years. Tiffany Conway sets out alone from Florida to join her parents in Ohio. She's young, strong, armed, and, with a Marine Corps background, skilled. She'll walk the entire distance if necessary. Sam Pratt and Chet Evans, best friends and business partners, are luckier than most. Retired from the military, they too have skills. But they have something more--a running vehicle. With it, they set out from central Florida heading for the safety of Sam's cabin in the sparsely populated foothills of Tennessee. With society crumbling, will they make it in one piece? Will they make it at all? "This was one of the best survival post apocalyptic books I have ever read. The characters were like real people doing what was necessary to survive. I most definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys this genre." Amazon Reviewer "A really good read. A solid page turner from beginning to end. A very realistic scenario. Hope to see more books from this author." Amazon Reviewer "Great read! One of the best in this genre since A American began. Fast paced, great characters, unexpected situations. A fast read!"

    Wouldn't happen... Starts out as a typical EMP, SHTF story, but some situations were just silly, such as when 7 armed 'rednecks' attack a military convoy of 40 humvees that are armed with 50 caliber guns. I call no way. Then one single pickup truck with 4 guys also attack the convoy. Seriously? Only if they're planning suicide would such a ridiculous thing happen. Also, apparently you can recognize gang members, because they're the only ones covered in tattoos. Huh. I guess the author hasn't watc Wouldn't happen...

I guess the author hasn't watched a lot of pro sports, because the last time I watched quite a few players were covered in tattoos. Results: after 10 chapters of silliness, I gave up. It could have been a good book, but the situations were just too farfetched.

    The writing for this book was decent with not a lot of errors and generally had good flow. I like that Tiff was a strong female character. I also liked that, for once, the military was not the bad guys. There was a lot of common EMP story formula here. Far from home and have to get there, bad guys want the women, bad guys take over town. I found it very odd, though, that Sam and Chet would have trouble finding where they left the Hummer, a couple of times. Seems like a key thing to not have happ The writing for this book was decent with not a lot of errors and generally had good flow. I like that Tiff was a strong female character.

I also found it not credible that some yahoos in an old truck would chase and attack a large military convoy with clearly superior weaponry. Surely Darwin doesn't need that much help.

    A hummer does what? First of all the author wrote that the hummer runs on gas, wrong it takes diesel fuel. Next issue is toward the ending when he tells us the hummer has standard transmission where as the military sent to autism decades ago. My next issue is how a retired CAN from the 82nd Airborne does not mark the location of said hummer and ends up unable to go locate it while fleeing from some thugs. It was just disappointing being a Army veteran and seeing so many mistakes as written by a f A hummer does what? First of all the author wrote that the hummer runs on gas, wrong it takes diesel fuel.

    Solid P-A Read This is just a plain great Post-Apocalyptic story. Nothing fancy, but well-told. Clean enough for all down to 13. An attempted rape is started, but interrupted, and doesn't get graphic. The only implausible part of this story is the prototypical highly-trained female former Marine...who is also drop-dead gorgeous, blonde, body-to-die-for, etc. Oh, and also a better shot than any of the men in this story.

    This was a good action novel with some really good characters. The scenarios are pretty good, and hold the readers attention. The two male main characters do some stupid things that I really don't think they would do. It gets them into a situation where they must be saved. I think they would be more cautious than that. All in all, it is a good book and kept my attention throughout each page. I am looking forward to reading the second in the series. This was a good action novel with some really good characters.

    Too violent! I read two of this author's books about time travel and enjoyed them. They had some violence, but it wasn't constant. The story of surviving an EMP was interesting and made me grateful that we are only navigating through the coronavirus but I would have been happier with less shooting and mayhem. There is a second book in this series. I am hoping for more plot and less shot. Too violent! I read two of this author's books about time travel and enjoyed them.

    Just discovered Zugg. His strong suits are his pacing, characters, and the realistic behavior of his characters. Some of the slight problems he's had pale in comparison to the fun read. Five stars might be a bit generous, but hopefully it will help him keep writing and the yarns are worth it. This one, for instance, was great. He was right on with what would happen if things fell apart. Just discovered Zugg. His strong suits are his pacing, characters, and the realistic behavior of his characters.

    Good Premise and editing wasn't bad but... Does the author want to be the George R. R. Martin of survival fiction? Every time you think it can't get worse for the characters they'll get captured or almost raped or almost tortured again and again but always manage to save each other in the nick of time. Just gets silly after a while. Good Premise and editing wasn't bad but... Does the author want to be the George R. R. Martin of survival fiction?

    Nice knife Well written. Not a lot of super good luck type stuff with supplies just laying around, but really using a bark river mini kephart to cut cheese and salami? I think Derrick would call that a little bit of over kill! Give the man a benchie or a spider co for lunchmeat! I would love to see plans for the buggy!

    Lots of guns This is a good read for paramilitary types. If you are of a military mind set you’ll like this read. Lots of clear cut “good guys” and “bad guys”. In an actual apocalyptic situation, things probably wouldn’t be so clear cut with the whole population being in the same boat and all. But. For feel good escapism, it’s fine.

    Pretty good story Very good story with interesting characters who I enjoyed reading about. Tiff is a bad ass & it is not smart to get on her bad side.

    Excellent book. Plenty action and it didn't get bogged down with filler pages. Love the characters of Sam and Chet. They grow on you and their soft spun humor was great. Excellent book.

    Great Dystopian novel Excellent read! Hoping to see more from Victor Zugg. Maybe more with this interesting and well fleshed out cast of characters?

    Solar Plexus review Solar Plexus is a fast paced post apocalyptic book about the fall of civilization after a solar flair written by author Victor Zugg. I would love a sequel.

    Interesting fast paced tale The story moved quickly and the characters were interesting. The plot was fairly standard but there were a few surprises along the way.

    Great Read! Non stop action, with a good storyline. Surprised that this is his first Dystopian fiction, he writes like a seasoned pro. Watch for more good things from this author!

    Good stop I really liked the characters that developed in this story. Plausible people and events. A lot of very narrow escapes. Definitely worth the time.!

    Spoiler ahead Why did one of the good guys have to die at the end. The writing was ok and the story was ok. But with that end, well it sucked. I don't recommend this author.
