A severe Solar Flare has changed our entire planet and life
as we now know it. All electrical grids are down and life
has pretty much reverted back to the late 1800s. Only
vehicles with no electronic capabilities are working.
Shelby Sparks and her seventeen year old son Carter left
Abney, Texas with her best friend Max Berkman, and went to
live at High Plains Ranch with Max's parents. Their farm is
pretty much self-sustainable. All Shelby needs is insulin
for her son. Carter has been a Type 1 diabetic since he was
four years old.
Shelby and Max come up with a plan to drive his old beater
truck to Austin, about a ninety mile drive, and search for
insulin. As they begin their journey, a couple friends in
Abney join them, along with Abney's major making a request
to bring back some medical supplies for the town. When they
get beyond the blockades and on the main road, they cannot
believe what they are seeing. Abandoned cars, dead bodies,
fires and destruction surround them. The going is very
rough, but what they encounter in Austin is even worse.
Vigilante gangs are running rampant, martial law, or not
law at all, abounds. Can Shelby and Max find what they need
and make it back to High Plains alive?
RAGING STORM is Vannetta Chapman's second book in her new
Remnant series. We first met Shelby and Max in DEEP
SHADOWS as the Solar flare occurred. Ms. Chapman picks up
when she left off and continues this dynamic story. There
are a plethora of unexpected twists and turns in this
extraordinary storyline that will have you riveted to the
pages. Shelby and Max, along with the supporting
characters, are all very well-developed and realistic. They
are all just trying to survive in an apocalyptic world, and
may have to compromise their principles to do so. Ms.
Chapman brings green technology and sustainability to the
story and also includes several tips and lists at the end.
This inspirational novel shows life as we know it, and our
future, changed forever. If we don't have faith and hope,
what is left? But God's goodness is not gone ... He alone
holds our tomorrows. Although Ms. Chapman does a great job
of integrating the backstory, please read DEEP SHADOWS
first. This story will be much more understandable and
enjoyable! And I look forward to the next one. She's left
When a massive solar flare wiped out all modern technology
across the globe, the small town of Abney, Texas, was thrown
into chaos. Shelby Sparks and her teenage son, Carter, have
found refuge, but Shelby knows she can't simply remain
hidden. Carter is a type 1 diabetic in need of insulin—and
Shelby will risk her life traveling to Austin to make sure
he gets it.
Shelby's best friend and high school sweetheart, Max
Berkman, won't even consider letting her make the perilous
journey alone. Together, they manage to reach the
capital—only to discover that while things are desperate in
Abney, Austin has turned into an urban nightmare on the
brink of anarchy.
Shelby and Max's search for medical supplies will lead them
into terrifying territory, where the only thing more
uncertain than finding what they need is the hope of making
it out of the city alive.
