At the heart of it all is Liam Coleman, a man who finds himself in Chicago when the attack happens. When his phone stops working and their car is among hundreds that crash he begins to suspect that this is something greater than a local power outage.

Things get bad really fast but he whips together a group of men and women and they band together to try to survive one of the worst catastrophes to ever hit planet Earth.

Over the course of the series, it follows the stories of several of their friends to showcase their different strategies for surviving in a world that has gone to the dogs.

“Edge of Collapse” the first novel of the “Edge of Collapse” series of novels is an interesting apocalyptic novel. At the opening of the series, the power grid has been destroyed by an EMP attack that plunges the US into chaos as there is no electricity, cars, or phones.

It seems the only person rejoicing about the turn of events is Hannah Sheridan. She had been kept imprisoned by a psychopathic man and the EMP had destroyed the electric components of the lock of her cell and set her free.

She comes out of her cell pretty much fine, even if a little tired and flustered into a world deep in the grip of an unprecedented winter. Now that she is free, she intends to thrive regardless of what the new world might throw at her.

Meanwhile, a reclusive former soldier named Coleman is trying to cope with a world in which he has lost everything. He once upon a time thought he was prepared to deal with any calamity until the EMP proved him wrong.

Most people have learned that rural Michigan could be a safer haven but now need to traverse more than 200 miles of harsh terrain to get there.

“Edge of Madness” the second novel of the “Edge of Collapse” series is Hannah and Liam’s story.

Things had gotten very bad following the EMP disaster adding to the pain of Hannah going missing a few weeks before. Noah and Milo scrambled to pick up the pieces but it was not going to be easy.

Milo has some medical issues and with the land still in the grip of a nasty winter, things could only get worse. He had once been a happy and well-adjusted child who would go to the local resort with his parents but that is now but a dream.

Milo and Noah had been at the resort having fun when the EMP struck and everything screeched to a halt. Being the good man he was, Noah tried as much as he could to help anyone that was stranded. Working with a young man from the nearest town they manage to free almost everyone at the resort.

But only the geeky teenager knows that the failure of everything at the resort is a result of an EMP attack. Their world is about to change forever and Noah may need to work on the many skills he had learned over the years to protect and feed his loved ones.

“Edge of Darkness” by Kyla Stone is the third novel of the “Edge of Collapse” series. At the opening of the novel, Liam and Hannah are recovering following a brutal attack on them while they were studying at the library. But their friend Ghost had sustained horrific injuries protecting Hannah and Pike and now urgently needs treatment.

Noah and the police officers working under him are determined to eliminate the criminals threatening their community. Meanwhile, some militia and members of the police force are in a rage and want to do unspeakable things to the criminals and this makes Noah question his morals and theirs.

How far are he and the others willing to go to protect their community from a vicious gang.
