The journey of survival continues in the second book of the best-selling Lone Survivor saga.
Four months ago, an EMP brought the power grid down and crippled the country, leaving ferry pilot Landon Gray and off-the-grid teen Beth “Bluebird” Sullivan alone on a North Carolina mountain, scrambling to survive. The unlikely duo escaped death, but are far from safe.
With no power, internet, phones, or transportation and over a thousand miles from his home in Castine, Maine, they set off on a perilous journey using the Appalachian Trail. But as chaos forces the worst of society into their path, they must fight to survive.
All That Survives is the second book of the Lone Survivor series, a post-apocalyptic EMP thriller series following a group of survivors as they fight to stay alive after an EMP destroys the nation’s power supply.

After listening to Book 1, I plunged right into Book 2. I received a free audiobook review copy of Book 2, at my request, and I started it immediately after finishing Book 1. This is a voluntary review of ‘All That Survives’ of Jack Hunt’s LONE SURVIVOR series.
If you haven’t read/listened to Book 1 of this series, ‘All That Remains’, get that as well. It’s a great listen. It may be somewhat helpful if you read that before starting ‘All That Survives’. In Book 2, we continue to follow Landon and Beth on their way to the Appalachian Trail. They discover things will not go smoothly for them in their attempt to reach Maine. Meanwhile, in Castine, ME, Landon’s wife and son are having struggles of their own, along with their fellow residents. We meet a new character, Sam, who is a Sheriff’s deputy trying to keep his small section of society from collapsing into anarchy.
Just like in Book 1, the action gets going right away and doesn’t let up until the end. I liked the introduction of Castine, ME’s government officials, so that we get a different perspective of what goes on when civilized behavior falls to the way-side. The struggle to survive forces people to make hard choices. This book is chock-full of edge-of-your-seat action, nail-biting suspense, and believable characters. Jack Hunt has delivered a thrilling story of the apocalypse.
Miles Meili as narrator, has hit it out of the park again. His performance adds emotional impact in the midst of chaos. Once again, there were moments that I could picture the book as if it were a film. Both Jack Hunt and Miles Meili are at the top of my ‘watch for’ list.
Very highly recommended.
