Can't Wait Wednesday-Blackout


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 


Westley Flagg isn’t your usual lawbreaker. He’s a poacher, a moonshiner and a prepper, out of necessity. Despite trying to live on the straight and narrow, he knows the law can turn things on you in a heartbeat. When Wes has to come up with money for his Grandpa’s surgery, he gets involved with an unsavory group.

Living deep in poverty for most of his life, he’s become resilient and flexible, but college education can only take him so far. A solar storm sends the northern lights as far south as Texas, and cascading failures in the grid cripple the nation. Now, without communications, Flagg has to prove he has what it takes to still survive. 


I've enjoyed some of the author's previous work so I was interested as soon as I saw this one. And there is a faithful hound on the cover! Of course I'm going to check this out!

  4. Yep, the faithful hound, plus the fact that it's a "Germie" would sell me on this one too. Hope you love it when you grab it! Also, hope you're having a great week. I'm in training today and tomorrow and it's kind of wearing me out (3 hours total driving time and people doing the training that don't have all their ducks in a row). My patience is thin!

    1. They seem to be a popular choice for these disaster books. I have a soft spot for the breed! Oh dear that sounds quite stressful! I hope you have a nice peaceful weekend...

    1. You need the faithful hound in this kind of scenario I think...might need to get a dog of my own before the apocalypse!
