THE BEGINNING OF THE END
Army veteran Cash Bishop chases little white lines around the South and Midwest, working as a long haul trucker to make ends meet until the homestead he is building with his mother and sister can support the family.
When a security breach at Hoover Dam takes all the U.S. hydroelectric power stations offline the day after a category five hurricane hits the Gulf of Mexico, cutting off electricity to millions and threatening an already compromised fuel supply, Cash figures it's time to chase those white lines home to Tennessee.
By the time he hits Chicago, the lights are out across the country, throwing America into a new dark age in which only the strong and the prepared will survive.
READER NOTE: This is Part One of the (separately available) three-part novel Long Haul Home.
Blind Spot by Christa Wick (Deep Space Apocalypse, #0)
It was the day the lights went out in the nation. Between a hurricane in the Gulf that took out electric power to millions, crippling fuel supplies and a security breach at Hoover Dam that pulled the plug on the U.S. hydroelectric stations, the country is plunged into a chaotic frenzy that will threaten the lives of every man, woman and child. Between the power of nature and the machinations of evil, few are prepared, and among them is one ex-soldier, a man who prepped for disaster, a man who must now make his way home to keep his family safe.
Cash Bishop is prepared for anything, including the fall of his nation, but can he get home to Tennessee in time to protect his family from marauders, monsters who would take advantage of people in need?
BLIND SPOT by Christa Wick is the first of a three-part saga of life after a modern day apocalypse. although a quick read, it appears this is the background we need to truly enjoy the following additions to this saga. Readers will follow Cash, see the situation from his vantage point and witness how he has planned one step ahead as he travels by any means necessary make it home to his family. He is methodical, adaptable and prepared far more than what the general populace would call “normal” because something like this could never happen, right? I liked Cash, loved his thought process and while I may not be ready to embrace all he has done, I’m pretty sure I need to read more about him, what he finds at home and what happens next!
