In Dark Coup, the third and final book in the Dark Grid trilogy, spring finds the residents of Promised Land and Redemption hard at the work of survival and recovery. However, looming dangers to life and liberty remain-and not all of them come from outside of the community. a life without power. The electrical grids of virtually the entire planet have shorted out as a result of expected, but completely unplanned for, sunspot activity during the peak of the current solar cycle.

Merry Christmas, and I am looking forward to David's next effort. I'd love to see something else set in the Dark Grid universe, whether it takes place at Promised Land/Redemption or not. Maybe a story about The Ramirez Gypsies would be fun. It would allow us to get an idea about what happened in the big cities after the CME and the fall of civilization, of which we only got a glimpse from Dan and Marissa.

The Dark Grid Series - Waldron, David C. TheFittest. This novel is part of the sub-genre of apocalyptical novels that deal with the power grid going down.

A few minutes later, Kyle came out looking more than a bit sheepish. I can’t believe I left the alarm on and the volume up so high, Kyle said ric said with a grin. You could have been sneaking up on someone and gotten a call. So, how do we want to scout and who wants to go first? It’s going to take forever with just one of us scouting the area, Eric said, but I don’t feel comfortable leaving camp unattended.

Dark Road, sequel to Dark Grid: When the Lights Go Out, Permanently, picks up just a few weeks after the end of Dark Grid. A disastrous solar storm has knocked out power grids throughout the northern hemisphere, and life as we know it in America will never be the same. The Taylor family, Eric, Karen, Chuck, and Sherri were able to evacuate from their neighborhood in Nashville, Tennessee before society collapsed, and join with the Tennessee National Guard to begin building a successful and thriving community in Natchez Trace--called Promised Land. First Sergeant Mallory Jensen was promoted to Major, thanks to orders from higher authority codenamed ARCLiTE...Dark Road follows the family of Dan and Marissa Clark. Increasingly desperate under the despotic rule of the HOA leader, Carey, wary of the rapidly increasing threat from contagious disease, and slowly but surely starving to death; what will happen when a family with two young children, and a better destination in mind, decides to undertake a journey outside the purported safety of their patrolled neighborhood--only to discover that it's patrolled to keep neighbors in, as well as marauders out?The community at Promised Land continues to grow--holding elections, annexing a town, and even celebrating their first wedding. But when Mallory reaches out to other military camps in the region, she discovers that ARCLiTE--and the forces behind it--may not be at all what they claimed to be...and suddenly everything is up in the air.PROFESSIONALLY EDITED AND FORMATTED
Reviews about Dark Road (The Dark Grid Series) (Volume 2) (7):
Pettalo
As I wrote in my review of Dark Grid, that book was a decent read but pretty corny with a lot of extraneous dialog.

Not so with sequel, the writing has really matured. No longer are there pages full of military-style "in" jokes and way too much sappiness.

In this sequel, we are joined again by the same list of characters from the first in the series. In addition we get to find out more about what happened to the neighborhood that was left behind and the arduous journey that members of that communinity take to find out just where Eric and the others went.

Finally, there some additional complications that appear from a schism that has developed within the remnants of the military at large which makes for a very interesting and unexpected sub-plot. It seems to me like there is a further book in this series forthcoming, and I for one can't wait to see what is in store for those in Natchez Trace!

Really enjoyed the two books in this Series. Seems that military protocol was a little stiff under the circumstances. Kind of like what a green academy grad would require to remind himself that he, or she, is really in charge, at least until the New had worn off. Then if that academy grad remained insecure in his abilities the stiff and unnecessary attitude would continue right up to frag time. Gotta run and get started on book 3. For those who have never served during combat, frag time refers to fragmentation grenade "accidentally" detonated during combat right near the officer (OCS,ROTC,or academy) who makes life dangerous or impossible, usually with decisions that would make him look good to his superiors even though they did not make tactical sense & put the troops at unwarranted risk.

Book number two of a three book series. I bought the POD (print on demand) version in trade paperback. I have purchased the third book in the series also.

Not everybody left the small HOA in Nashville in the first week after the Solar CME event. But when the electricity never came back on, the HOA rapidly turned into a work camp and the HOA president became a Colonel Klink wannabe. After the gasoline ran out, the EMT decides to follow his neighbors to the state park 100 miles outside Nashville. On bicycles with a six year old and eight year old.

The story is primarily about one family's desperate attempts to survive after an apocalyptic event. This is the second volume in the author's Dark Grid series. I almost did not get Volume II because Volume I was tedious, with too much inane dialogue I had to fast-forward through, but I am glad I got this one and I did not feel I had to rush through filler pages to get to plot progression. The book is action-packed and thought-provoking, and the characters are well-developed. It is as if this book was written by a different author. The book is worth buying if only for the depictions of power-mongering homeowners association members, brilliant! Anyone who has dealt with know-it-all bureaucrats who try and control people "for their own good" will appreciate this suspenseful book.

What's good: Premise (Very clever-Coronal Mass ejecta Destroy Electrical Distribution Grid); various interesting personalities; people dealing with the collapse of civilization; clever mechanisms to cope. What'a bad: crazy right wing tea party agenda; US Army abandoning populace. I love the whole thing where 500 people living in a forest as civilization collapses decide the most important thing they can do is repeal the part of the constitution that establishes the progressive income tax. Oh yeah, and gun control is bad. Surprise! It's OK to be black, but there are no Muslims, Jews or gay people. It is not a badly done book, but I wish the guy's goal had been to share a good story rather thàn to push his weird right-wing agenda. I would recommend the first book, with some reservations the second, and I won't be buying the third. (Largely from a fear the evil Colonel seeking to destroy America's freedom will turn out to be a socialist Muslim from Kenya. Enjoy.

This second book in the Dark Grid series is easily as good as the first and gets 4.5 stars from me. I did like the new characters that were introduced and their journey to get to relative safety & join with the first group (I'm trying real hard to to give away any spoilers...lol). Strong characters and an easily believable plot make for an enthralling read. I have one more book to go and I will be reading it soon.

This is the second book in the series and in my opinion this one was so much better then the first one. The characters seemed to come more alive in this book and struggles were more evident. The author incorporated some helpful tips on traveling lite and scavenging tips. May I never have to eat ketchup soup but if so I now know the recipe.

Have ordered the 3rd book and look forward to continuing this series.
You know a good book when you are swearing at a character for doing something stupid. This second book in the series is actually two stories in some ways. In fact part of it could be called "How to survive through shear luck in spite of yourself."
