The Defiant: Grid Down (Volume 1)

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN THE LIGHTS WENT OUT? For years a few have warned that a day of reckoning was coming, but those warnings went unheeded and even mocked. Then that day came… When Nicholas McNeil, a father and dedicated husband, turned out the lights in his suburban home Sunday night, they would never turn on again. During the early Monday morning hours, a spectacular and well coordinated attack destroys the grid and brings the United States to its knees. Nicholas was a man who had heeded the warnings to a degree, but most did not. With a society unprepared and a government overwhelmed, panic turns to chaos and soon violence. Fighting for what resources are still available, Nicholas and his family also find themselves fighting to survive as society turns on itself.

The characters are believable and I find myself interested in what happens next. Hopefully not falling into the routine of such books where the only large organized groups are cannibals,…

  2. ~~’Den of Misfits’~~ Society collapses in a bang after the grid goes down. Some are prepared but most are not…and, push goes to shove and beyond in a heartbeat. 

  3. Good Reading Makes Good Planning It’s the plausible stories that make you ponder such events in our own world, which might possibly link to fiction’s. A shiver runs the lengh of your spine. You plan a little more for what might be. That’s why Defiant is good and John Vance is a writer to watch. I’m always eager to see what he has in store for us. I highly recommend this author and Defiant
