Présentation de l'éditeur

Book Two in The Perseid Collapse Trilogy 

The critically acclaimed, post-apocalyptic saga continues...

With Boston collapsing faster than Alex Fletcher predicted, his personal rescue mission deep into the heart of an increasingly unfamiliar city reaches a critical point. Pursued by a ruthless militia group, and forced to navigate a treacherous landscape, he runs a gauntlet of grim decisions and impossible odds to reach perceived safety. Perceived because nothing is safe in the world emerging after the "event."

Back home--the consequences of a random, deadly encounter has left Kate Fletcher and her travel companions in a state of perpetual fear. Finally reaching the Fletcher's western Maine retreat, they prepare for the worst--not truly understanding the threat conspiring against them. 

In rural Maine, a series of lethal coincidences fuels a local militia leader's ghastly strategy to raise a private army, planting the Fletcher's firmly at the intersection of his power play--and the epicenter of his rage.

The human darkness released on August 19, 2019 continues to grow, threatening to tear the fabric of their fragile society apart...until nothing remains but a distant memory of the past. 

Point of Crisis: Book Three in The Perseid Collapse Trilogy will be released on July 30th, 2014.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Event Horizon" gritty, dark and post-apocalyptic. Steven Konkoly delivers once again. -triplemreviews 20 mars 2014

Read the review on our website: [...]

Less than two days after the United States of America is shaken to its' very core, courtesy of a cataclysm of unknown origins we witness destruction on an unimaginable scale; quite literally the Event Horizon, "the point of no return." Murder and mayhem run unchecked on the streets as warring factions vie for control of the newly-minted "Divided States of America." In his follow up to last years The Perseid Collapse Steven Konkoly begs the age-old question "Who can you really trust?" as he charts the last gasps of a dying nation, offering only mere glimpses of hope across the bleak, destroyed landscape that was once the Eastern seaboard.

Picking up right where The Perseid Collapse cut off, the situation in Boston is poised to implode as Alex Fletcher pursues his desperate escapade through the claustrophobic urban jungle to save his son. We are forced to watch on in horror as he wades knee-deep through the remnants of a once great city right into the heart of the terror that seeks to envelope the country as a whole, the hounds of hell nipping at his heels the entire time. After a series of unfortunate coincidences, with lethal consequences, violence looms on the horizon like an impending Nor'easter on both the frontlines and the homefront, set to blow away any vestiges of the old world left behind, set to leave nothing but death and destruction in its wake.

Steven Konkoly spins a taut web of suspense, fear and holds-barred action as he builds on his image of 2019 America that started with The Jakarta Pandemic. His imagination plays into our fears and insecurities as the husk of Boston comes into focus in Event Horizon; it is distant, foreign, and violent. Reading through the book I couldn't help but recall images of the war-torn cities of Sarajevo in the early 1990's and Baghdad barely ten years ago. This association creates an almost surreal feeling that extends through the rest of the novel from Boston, Massachusetts to Limerick, Maine.

The sheer depth of the series' undercurrents is what makes them so undeniably engaging; the novels aren't focused solely on the misadventures of one single enclave of humanity but on the plight society at large. It is about the repercussions of one's actions and the social issues that surround us in today's society: the omnipotent government, the financial system and the human capacity for violence. They don't feel the need to reach out and slap you across the face saying, "this is character development, in case you missed it..." but instead opts for the implied and unspoken. There is no sense of force here in that none of the plot points feel contrived and no matter which character is speaking--whether it is a Colonel of the United States Marine Corps or a Colonel in a local militia--it feels real; like that conversation would have actually occurred given the situation. It is this sort of complexity and realism that makes Steven Konkoly not a great writer, but an excellent one, never taking a break but bringing a crackling intensity to all 350 pages.

As the novel comes to an electrifying close a thick sense of dread creeps into mind, leaving you gasping. After reading the very last line my mind began to swim with all the possibilities, all the eventualities, all the things I can only hope won't actually happen when Fletchers and friends return in Crisis Point. Already four thousand words into book 3, we can only hope Steven hasn't already done the unthinkable; but, we'll all just have to wait and see what new twists and turns his imagination comes up with to throw at us mid-June.

The Bottom Line:
With the overwhelming number of independent authors that have flooded the Kindle store in recent years there are only a few authors I can count on to really deliver each and every time, among them is Steven Konkoly. In his latest technothriller, Event Horizon, Steven Konkoly proves once again that he has a knack for writing some of the best, most exciting and engaging fiction out there; it'll have you--the reader--flipping through pages faster than Alex can even send a magazine downrange. Be sure to check out the rest of the series!

Konkoly is such a good action writer. It's tense and fun; the pages fly by. Definitely recommend for those who like s*** hits the fan and post-apocalyptic. Nicely edited, too.

I liked the first two books that the author wrote with this character, and would give them each a 4 star rating. By the end of this book, I'd long lost count of how many people Alex had killed, so it's turned into a Rambo style bloodbath. The story kind of flew off the rails into one implausible scenario after another. Still, if you like that sort of thing, this is better written that other similar stuff out there.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Exciting and well-written, but short; will annoy the heck out of "oath keepers" and patriot/liberty people 31 mars 2014

Very well written and exciting. The action sequences in Konkoly's books flow effortlessly. His work is comfortably at the top of the SHTF genre.

Two criticisms/observations.

First, price is a bit high for the short length of the book.

(SPOILERS)

Second, members of the "patriot" community are going to be annoyed by this series. Anti-government types are portrayed as murderous, traitorous villains who have been itching for the S to HTF so that they can unleash terror on the populace and build up private feifdoms. I think Konkoly gets credit for having the courage to play with this idea: that, if the SHTF, "preppers" and other fellow travelers may well be part of the problem, and will not always be the good guys. That said, the portrayal of the Boston "Liberty Boys" ("insurgents"), as well as the Marine "traitors" all seems to be really far fetched and extreme. The idea that 3 days after some collapse event, there are going to be truck bombs and "oath keeper" marines gunning down other marines seems to be a bit much. Getting some more perspective or background from that side would have helped.

excellent series, some really bad luck for these folks, but plot and characters are believable and interesting.........looking forward to book three.........................
The idea that national guard troops and units in times of crisis being overwhelmed is more truth and fiction. Reading these books will help somebody who hasn't been in the military understand all that can go wrong and most likely will go wrong. Read how the infrastructure will fail because of so many reasons, most start in Washington D.C. but these books will give you some good thought provoking ideas to dwell on "What If"..............ric harrison
