Audiobook: Hornet’s Nest (Blackout #5) by Bobby Akart (Narrated by John David Farrell)

 Kicking the Hornet’s Nest Can Have Consequences

5 out of 5 stars

Just another standout book by Bobby Akart.  Holy cow can this guy write. Hornet’s Nest is the continuation of the Blackout Series and I cannot believe how far the series and it’s characters have come.  As this book was finishing up, I thought back to the first book where the Ryman’s first heard about the CME that would cause all the lights to go out. I can’t believe just how far they’ve come and grown as characters.

Hornet’s Nest takes place as a mini civil war breaks out between two families and their followers.  But this battle isn’t two sides of the same coin, it’s a good vs evil fight with the Ryman family and everyone around Shiloh Ranch on the side of the good.

The story itself started fast and stayed fast-paced throughout, but ended with a cliffhanger. At least I know that the next book is in production for audio and should be out within a month.  I can’t wait to see what happens!

As I mentioned above, the characters have grown from book to book.  I really feel like I know the Ryman’s personally and that I’ve been watching their daughter grow up before my eyes.  She really is an awesome main character and is easily one of the most memorable characters I’ve ever read.

The entire community is also one of the more memorable post-apocalyptic families and communities that I’ve ever read about.  It’s funny writing that, because it feels like I’m writing my final review of the series, but there’s still one more book.

Overall, if you’ve been keeping up with the Blackout series, you will not be disappointed by this book at all.  It really had a lot in it, and it felt like more happened in Hornet’s Nest than the other books (until you remember just what happens in those books too).  Akart is really a master of his craft and I cannot wait to see how this story ends.

Prepare to learn, as well as be entertained as The Blackout Series continues with HORNET'S NEST.

HORNET'S NEST, book five in The Blackout Series, tests the mettle of our characters. Will one success lead to devastation for them all? Is it possible for an unlikely group of heroes to band together to defeat an evil which had plagued a small community for decades? And if they are successful, how do you build a world shattered by the devastating aftereffects of a massive solar flare?

Note: This book does not contain strong language. It is intended to entertain and inform audiences of all ages, including teen and young adults. Although some scenes depict the realistic threat our nation faces from a devastating solar flare, and the societal collapse which will result in the aftermath, it does not contain graphic scenes typical of other books in the post apocalyptic genre.

I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
