(2 customer reviews)


His survival rules kept them alive when the power went out.

Five days ago, Tyler and two strangers battled roving gangs and survived a perilous journey home to Montana after an electromagnetic pulse crippled the country. His brother, Corey fought off inmates to save the community of Whitefish from being destroyed. Now, as the town falls apart in the aftermath, the survivors must deal with conflict, looters, and defend their family from local danger.

How far would you go to protect those you love?

Trouble is brewing in the small mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, as old rivals seek vengeance, and Mayor Hudgens struggles to maintain order. With the riots and town fires raging out-of-control, Andy Ford must reunite his family if they want to stay alive. But how, when a tide of unpredictable violence, and a familiar face from the past threatens to keep them apart?

Rules are one thing, surviving the end of the world is another.

With the power grid down, and the collapse of government, loyalties will be tested and the Ford’s rules might not be enough to hold the town together. Who is the mysterious, Jude Lawson? Can Nate and Erika survive the unimaginable? And how will the decisions of the few affect the survival of many?

Rules of Conflict is Book Two in Survival Rules, a post-apocalyptic EMP thriller series following the Ford family and their community as they fight to survive after an EMP destroys the nation’s power grid.

    Rules of Conflict, the 2nd book in the Survival Rules series, picks up shortly after the end of Rules of Survival, and continues to follow the struggles of Tyler Ford, his friends, family, and the people Whitefish, Montana. This is a solid post apocalyptic thriller and features a solid cast of characters (no spoilers but some of them you’ll absolutely love to hate), a lot of fast paced action, and multiple interconnected intriguing storylines (one of which was surprisingly dark). And the ending definitely left me wondering about what comes next.

    The second book of the ‘Survival Rules’ series, ‘Rules of Conflict’, is a more action-packed nail-biter than the first. Conditions in Whitefish are about as bad as Andy Ford would have predicted. Corey has become the focus of Gabriel’s vengeance and Tyler seeks purpose from Jude, a survivalist leader and former friend of Andy. Erika and Nate find themselves captives of a not-too-bright prepper family. They need to put their head together to form a plan of escape (with Bailey’s help).

    Jack Hunt once again delivers a suspense-filled roller coaster ride of a post-EMP thriller. Hunt has a great ability to give the reader a high-tension survival story that keeps them on the edges of their seats until the end.

    Not only is the plot riveting, but Hunt’s characters are real people. I’ve become invested in the lives of Tyler, Corey, Erika, Nate and even Andy. I care what happens to them. Some characters may not make the best choices, but, to be fair, they are in a fish-out-of-water situation with the EMP strike. Hunt makes sure those not making good choices pay the consequences of their actions. It’s the characters, above all else, that make me want to finish this series. I’m interested in knowing how their experiences will change them, for better or worse.

    Miles Meili is such a great narrator. He brings these characters and situations alive for me. I don’t think anyone else could do a better job with Jack Hunt’s great story.
