I first came across these books and downloaded them almost three years ago. I've finally worked my way through my audiobook list to arrive at L. It sets up a great story with interesting characters and gets the listener invested right away. The first book in the series is basically an introduction to the rest of the books and leaves you wanting more, so definitely be ready to commit to the journey.
I don't know what caused this guy to stop writing, but This is an amazingly good read! I couldn't put it down. It offends me that he stopped after hooking me so firmly. He's either just an asshole, or he got some disease that prevents him from using his hands. Not a terrible read but didn't have me on the edge of my seat.

Ultimately, I'd say sure, go ahead and read, if it's 2 in the morning and you have nothing else to do, or you need to get your apocalypse fix on. It's on par with Extinction Point , another one of those doomsday books that reads well enough until you actually think about it for five minutes. I read this one for the plot because 2 a. Two and a half stars rounding up because, well, I'm a softie.
Oct 06, Nick Susie rated it really liked it. Good book, just wish they didn't all have the super stud ex-military dude that leads the group. But I guess normal folk like me would end up dead quickly in reality anyway. Now I have to get book two in the series. Apr 24, Lucas Darathy rated it it was ok. This is a very interesting book. I think I like all the characters.
It's hard to tell. And he thought about tampons for the ladies, so he's "sweet". I guess it's safe to say this book was written by a man.
Jeremy is a wimp. They go through a bunch of trouble to get resources to survive.

There's being a "good person", and then there's surviving under those circumstances. He can think well when it comes to survival.

Blood Loss, (Bk 2 of Jeremy's Run) continues where L.A. Dark (Bk 1) ended. It is Day Two. The grid is down. Five ordinary friends begin to execute their plan to.
And then he's stupid as hell when it comes to women - especially his girlfriend. Then we have the ladies, who didn't do much. Sarah is the "weird" one, who can see colours on people? I believe there's a name for this condition, but all they mentioned was autism and Asperger's.
She's quite smart, though, and was the only one taking it all seriously before the However, it's not like she made any important decisions. Important decisions are only made by MEN. She was the annoying one, just giggling and being as unhelpful as possible. Women can do much more than be weird, annoying and unhelpful, you know?
Other than that, as I said, it was an interesting book. It all happened so fast and it was fun to see them reacting. It was a short book, though. But it does have lots of potential. Jul 11, Greg rated it liked it Shelves: Like others, though, it ended abruptly. The author clearly intended to entice the reader to purchase subsequent novels, rather than finding a way to make this one a stand alone book in a trilogy or series.
My preference is the latter If I like the author's style and the story line, I will look for subsequent books. If I don't, a cliffhanger ending is not going to change my mind. It just annoys me. Jeremy's Run begins L. Dark , a series of apocalyptic fiction. Five friends hanging out together in an apartment are thrown into survival mode when EMP bursts blacken the coast and perhaps the rest of the countryside. Engaging, and I can see the potential for not just survivalist themes, but interpersonal conflict, economic issues, and other interesting sub-topics showing up in future books.
I hope it doesn't devolve into a standard "first person shooter" type novel Jun 27, Amber rated it really liked it. Definitely a series that has potential. Basically meaning it is supported by real world science but most people either ignore it or dismiss the fact that it would ever happen. Most of the characters in this book have little to no idea of what is going on and believe the power will be Definitely a series that has potential. Most of the characters in this book have little to no idea of what is going on and believe the power will be back on soon.
Overall I think this was a fairly believable scenario and the author did a pretty good job. However the drug use felt unnecessary and it was a bit difficult to keep up with who the characters were. It would have been better if they were introduced a bit more gradually instead of all at once.
This is more of a book designed to get you interested in the series rather then a standalone novel. Still for a free Kindle download I'd say it did pretty well. Aug 18, Kristi rated it it was amazing. I loved this book. I don't want to give too much away, but it is a realistic? The characters in it are great. They're 'real' enough that you believe them without going 'oh well -that- was fortunate for them that this guy just happened to be Rambo' or whatever. The author has done his research so that the details seem realistic and makes you believe that this story could have happened, or at least he fooled me.
I've already gotten started on the sequel. It ends in a very tens I loved this book. It ends in a very tense situation that if you enjoy the book makes it agonizing not to continue. Feb 10, Mad-robot rated it it was ok. Another book where the author has a significant amount of real-world knowledge to share, but not a very good platform to share it with. I really wish these guys would team up with a more experienced author, the result would be so much more fun-to-read. While this book was a quick read, the characters are so one-dimensional that they're interchangeable with one another.
Worth a glance if you get it for free through the Kindle, otherwise I would take a pass. Dec 19, Autumn rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Updating my reviews here. You can find the dates I started and finished this book and the review for this book on my BookLikes. This book is honestly only worth half a star, but you can't do half stars here.
I would suggest that a reader avoid this book and this author, based on the poor quality of this story, and trying to fleece readers by not giving the reader a full story for their money. Apr 17, RJ rated it liked it Shelves: I was a little hesitant at first on choosing this series since it involves a group of five young people. I was concerned that it would be more young adult than survival action-thriller. Turns out the writing is quite good, the characters likable, and the story plausible.
He is one cool dude. Jun 07, Carol Daniels rated it it was amazing. Loved every minute of it. I could visualize the apartment, the garage, the freeway, nearby stores, the people they encountered, the book was very descriptive, yet very fast moving. It kept my attention therefore I almost finished the book the first day I started it.
