“To the Rescue” A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller (Surviving the Black--Book 2) continues the saga of a hardy band of multi-generational survivors in rural Tennessee started in “Breckinridge Valley; Surviving the Black—Book 1” by burgeoning author Zack Finley.

The action in “To the Rescue” begins about three months after a massive coronal mass ejection wipes out the electrical grid in industrialized countries around the world. The loss of power triggers cascading system failures and the complete collapse of the national supply chain. When the power goes down, it doesn’t just affect electricity. Soon families can no longer count on supplies of natural gas, propane, or heating oil to stay warm, so what do they do? The corner grocery store has at most a week’s supply of food. When that is gone, then what? When the power dies, most sources of clean water dry up. Medical care deteriorates to life before antibiotics. Those counting on a government rescue haven’t learned the harsh lessons taught by Hurricanes Katrina, Maria, Michael, Harvey, or Sandy. Hunger, fear, uncertainty, and deprivation lead to civil unrest and chaos as societal norms crumble. Even if your family prepared what happens when your less prepared neighbors get desperate? How far would you go to save your family? As much as those in Breckinridge Valley just want to be left alone to care for their families, the outside world finds a way to intrude. This electrifying novel of persistence demonstrates the expanding versatility of new author Zack Finley. This dystopian novel features well-researched survival tips against the backdrop of rural America. The Surviving the Black series presents one version of a possible future, should American society continue its increasing dependence on a poorly managed electrical grid and food supplies coming from half a continent away. Caution: Mature themes, not suitable for persons under 18. This is the second in a series expected to contain a total of five books.

    Thought provoking to say the least I can't remember how I quite came across Mr. Finley work but I'm glad I did . He seems very versatile and well schooled in the practices involving survival of a catastrophic event . Fortunately for the characters they are located in what they call a area that is adequate for surviving such an event . Me as a reader unfortunately, I'm stuck in south-central New Jersey believe me I've gone through several plans a , B, C, etc. I did enjoy this book as well as the f Thought provoking to say the least I can't remember how I quite came across Mr. Finley work but I'm glad I did .

I have enjoyed it look forward to reading the third book and Mr. Finley has told me of possibly two others I hope so would be good to see the good guys come over the hill once in the stories great work thank you for an excellent book Bill Hodges

    This series is well-worth reading. No virus but rather a CME has ruined civilization. Although Jeremy loved the wife who died he never seems to miss her. It's part of what makes him a less realistic character. I noticed this when he is wishing he could walk on the beach with his 2 daughters and never mentions his wife. The adventures the guys from the valley have is fascinating. Not every goal is hit but still a good read. By that I mean in war time or times of great stress people turn to one an This series is well-worth reading. No virus but rather a CME has ruined civilization.

Not in this book it's all about survival and helping others.

    Still exciting This action in the series is moves somewhat predictably toward other post apocalyptic works. However the fact that these guys have it together so darn well makes the reading very enjoyable. I particularly like the idea that some folks in end of world scenarios might actually be well prepared and ready to go.

    Good read Enjoyed it. Some issues with tenses in the first book and the first person narrative is disorienting and over explanatory in a couple places, but it kept my attention and left me wanting more. It seems pretty well researched as well. Learned a couple things that may come in handy when the SHTF...

    Once again I ventured into the realm of post apocalyptic reality and this book is very real. The locations mentioned are real and I have been to most of them on my travels around the country. Again the story line captivated me and I could not put the book down. The ending made me immediately want the next book in the series.

    Great series! Can't wait for the next book! CME event is a real possibility, more so than nuclear war. It makes you think how fast we go from the good life to just trying to survive.

    Where’s Book 3?!! I love this series! It’s an interesting take on a grid down situation plus it has likable, interesting characters. Lots of great information, as well. Can’t wait to read book 3!

    400 pages ended too quickly. the end of the book came as a shock to me so involved in the story. was little upset though author did a short sequel, but looking at it all books in series are 400 pages. so I put that as a plus.

    Interesting Not sure about how probable this storyline is, however it is a good read. The characters are multidimensional though the bad guys are horrible people who deserve to die for the terrible things they have done.

    Great read The writing is easy to understand and believable. The setting is realistic and the characters are not set up to be heros.

    I like that this book is a full-length part of a series and not one of the short "episodic" type. There are some grammar issues with punctuation and verb tense. The style of writing is choppy with some sentences being very terse and others being very drawn out and often I have a bit of trouble telling whose is talking in dialogue or who is being referenced in the action. This has some action in several parts of the book, but there is also a lot of lag with drawn out explanations as to what is go I like that this book is a full-length part of a series and not one of the short "episodic" type.

This has some action in several parts of the book, but there is also a lot of lag with drawn out explanations as to what is going on, what has gone on and with a lot of military jargon. The characters themselves do not have a lot of growth. I do like some of the descriptions of how they were doing things, like the set up of the new toilets which I found very informative. I also like the discussion of their code of ethics and rules of engagement in this new world and their conclusions make a lot of sense while maintaining integrity. The latter part of the book as they are traveling south was pretty good, though I found looking at a map helped me visualize it better. It ends with a cliff-hanger as all good book 2s should.
