Another great, post apocalyptic book by Mr. Forstchen. This book is the second in the series and follows One Second After by the same. This book picks up with book 1 in the series leaves off. In this book, John meets with part of the newly formed US government after the EMP or "The Day" as they call it.
John Matherson again proves that he is a man of integrity and his historical knowledge, since his last job was as a history professor in Black Mountain, NC. The book is somewhat slow but when you get to chapter 11, you cannot put it down. John's ultimate villain is an overzealous politico that is trying to run NC as his own empire. He tries to tempt John by offering him positions and rank but did not expect John to be as principled as he was.
Great, action packed book. Can't wait to read the next one.
