n the first five minutes over a million people will die... that's just the beginning of the nightmare.

Society begins to come apart as the planes begin falling from the sky and all traces of normal vanish. Scott Montgomery watches helplessly as pandemonium consumes the world around him. But the loss of electrical power is just the first of the problems facing the survivors in the chaos that follows.
Soon Scott discovers the loss of electricity was just the beginning of his problems. In a land without laws and few consequences for their actions individuals must come to terms with their darkest fears and desires. What will he do when he learns the draconian plans one secret group has for regaining control and ensuring their own vision for the new world?
Catalyst is a shockingly realistic tale of how society copes when the world is thrust back to a time before technology. If you are a fan of Steve Konkoly, Tom Abrahams or A. American, -- you will love this book.
Sci-Fi ~ Dystopian
I was approached by this author to check out the third book in this series. While he offered the first two as well, I like to support authors when I am able, and have become more dependent on Audio to get my book fix. So, I bought this for myself on a gamble that I'd like it. And do you know what? I DID!
This was great! While not completely action-packed (there were moments of slower-paced life, which I fully enjoy in a book), it was still thrilling and kept me hooked throughout. I don't know if it's due to how it was written, or if it's just the prepper wannabe in me, but the passages of stocking up and making lists of things did NOT bore me in the slightest; rather, it captivated my attention. Great storytelling, and great characters. I also would like it known that I offer myself up if Bartos needs someone to keep the home fires burning... Just sayin' lol!
Also, I feel like there may be zombies, or a Captain Trips type twist coming?? I ACCEPT.
The narrator did a great job, as well, really bringing the story to life. On occasion it felt he was a little unfamiliar with the passage he was reading, but overall it was excellent on all counts.
