As brilliant authors of survivalist literature, the authors came together to pen the series of novels that has now become one of the most popular in the genre. The first novel of the series was James Hunt’s novel “Broken Lines” that was first published in 2014.

The “EMP Survival in a Powerless World” series of novels tell some interesting survival stories featuring a range of survivalist characters. The novels tell of the fight to survive in a world that has to deal with food shortages, no power and fending off the stronger armed marauding groups that take from those deemed weaker.

With conditions so bad, people need to dig deep to survive and often resort to primal reactions. While most people believe there are things they would not do even in the most challenging situations, these novels show just how people can throw every moral principle out the window to survive and feed their families.
The authors show the primal nature that having to survive often brings out in almost all people. Each novel provides a different protagonist and showcases how he reacts to the events following a world changing EMP strike.

“Broken Lines” by James Hunt is the debut novel of the “EMP Survival in a Powerless World” series. It tells of a man who had been a prepper for the longest time and even had a cabin deep in the woods where he used to spend the weekends with his wife, teenage daughter and son.

The family had stocks of food and weapons which made them feel safer in case there was a meltdown of society. But an EMP is not something Mike had ever prepared for and when it happens society quickly goes to the dogs.

Mike sets off an explosion in his house to cover his family’s escape while he is left behind, presumed dead. Meanwhile, the family heads to the safety of their cabin while Mike gets out of the house and begins the search for his wife and children.

Mike is a driven man who wants to protect his family at all costs and this results in a violent, sometimes depressing and exciting story that shows the worst and best of society when it is crunch time.

“Static,” the second novel of the EMP Survival series is a work by James Hunt. It introduces Wren Burton, a Chicago architect who does not have much time to spend with her husband and children as she is always working. She just learned that her teenage daughter has not been attending school and is at a loss at what to do.

An EMP only makes matters worse as their world begins falling apart. She needs to find her children and husband and head somewhere safer. Soon after, her supplies begin running out as people she had come to see as friendly neighbors become desperate.

Her husband had been working outside the city as a paramedic when the EMP stuck. She needs to get him and all the supplies they can lay their hands on and get to a safer place.

Nathan, who is her husband’s colleague, informs her of a place where they could find sanctuary but he neglects to tell them of what to expect when they get there. It is going to be trial by fire when they get there.
