An Introduction to the EMP Survival Series
4 out of 5 stars
I’ve had this book on my list for quite some time now. I’ve had my eye on Jack Hunt for even longer. This is my first book by him and my first book in this series. It has a dog on the cover so it’s an instant win for me (unless the dog dies, PA authors if you’re reading this – don’t kill the dog). Hunt wrote a very interesting take on the Post-Apocalyptic genre with this one. A lot of the stuff that happens and prepared vs not prepared is here but the date (New Year’s Eve) along with the types of characters helped make this stick out a bit to me.
The introduction of a bike messenger was something completely new to me. In a world without power – someone who is used to riding a bike 50 miles a day should, in theory, do well since he would already have a bike and the knowledge of how to get around the city very quickly.
Surprisingly, this is one of the first books I’ve ever read where someone buys one of the prefab bunkers that companies sell. I’ve read a lot where someone builds their own or has an entire bunker custom built for them in a cave. But this is the first time I can remember reading about someone buying one “off the shelf”. That part also stood out to me. They spent some time in and around this place and I’d be curious to see how the survivors and the bunker hold up.
Overall, Days of Panic flirts the line between a typical post-apocalyptic story and something new. I hope that the rest of the series is inventive and comes up with some new stories and ideas.
Add in Kevin Pierce the voice of the apocalypse and you have a winner. If you like PA books and love Kevin’s voice – I’d be shocked if you didn’t like Days of Panic.

When the power grid fails, what will you do to survive?
After an EMP obliterates the nation's electrical grid on New Year's Eve, it's not long before society unravels and panic ensues. As the lights go out and silence spreads over the city that never sleeps, four ordinary strangers; a bike messenger, a homeless person, a support rep, and an ex-convict must forge a connection in order to stay alive.
When they realize the danger is far greater than they expected, they must embark on a perilous journey out of the city.
Days of Panic is book 1 of an EMP, post-apocalyptic survival thriller series. It's a powerful, action-packed story about the ones we leave behind and the risks we must take to survive.
