Miller has come up with a good plot: another EMP attack by North Korea. Unfortunately it seems that he jumped straight from conception to publication without passing through any writing classes, and skipped writer's workshops. I sure hope he takes the time to do so because he shows great imagination.
The five little "books", Breakdown; Escape; Resistance; Fallout; and Extraction that Miller has written have been published in a collection, which is how I read them; together they make up a nice-sized novel.
Miller created some characters who are interesting, able, and easy to identify with. For the most part, their actions and motivations are plausible and enhance the story line. However, the hero has very poor leadership skills, and other than some encouragement and praise, and a bit of gun-handling, does no team-building with the people who join him. In fact, it seems that Miller might have deprived his hero of that ability or interest in order to create numerous crises in the yarn.
The outdoor scenes and scenarios suggest Miller is an avid fisherman and possibly Hunter as well. Those are almost universally entertaining and encourage the reader to jump into his (her) waders and catch some fish. An astute (critical) reader will note some niggling details such as entrails or feathers, but likely chalk these up to writing style.
3.0 out of 5 starsInteresting but predictable read

Bruno is a decent author but the book was filled with too many cases where the right thing happened at the right time. He is also a bit long winded but over all the book held my attention and finished the entire series. Would probably buy any follow on books to see where things go. My only wish is he has used a more credible story line after an EMP.
4.0 out of 5 starsgood post EMP journey with all the elements of the genre except Zombies

Needs some proof reading and typographical error correction. Follows the formula of post apocalypse novels. These five little books do not a series make. Taken together they are an excellent novel (singular). The author uses shopworn scenarios and situations to move the action along presenting a narrow interpretation of the impact of such a disaster.
