Summary

This special box set edition of The Borrowed World Series contains the full text of books 1-3 of the best-selling series: The Borrowed World, Ashes Of The Unspeakable, and Legion Of Despair. This series has garnered tens of thousands of 4 and 5 star reviews.

If society fell apart, could your family survive? Jim Powell thought he was ready. He was a regular guy who travelled a lot for work and hated every second he was away from his young family. But when ISIS operatives unleashed a coordinated attack on America’s infrastructure, his entire world shattered. The electrical grid collapsed, communication networks were damaged, critical bridges and dams were destroyed, and major fuel refineries have gone up in massive fiery clouds.

Now, with an Executive Order halting fuel sales to the public, Jim Powell finds himself in a terrifying predicament. He's trapped hundreds of miles away from his family, and with thousands of stranded travelers and scarce law enforcement across the country, the miles between Jim and his family become a brutal gauntlet where the rules of a civilized society no longer apply.

Jim is a prepper with years of planning under his belt, but as he puts his preparations to the test, he soon finds that training for a societal collapse is very different from actually experiencing one. If Jim wants to make it back to his family in one piece, he'll need to find the strength and brutality to meet this new, dangerous world head-on—even if it means rising to unimaginable levels of violence.

Downloaded over 100,000 times, The Borrowed World is a series that you'll find yourself listening to more than once.

Believable

You could imagine this scenario playing out in real life how quickly we would be totally reliant on ourselves for survival. Let alone things you did not realise with the collapse of society such as prisoners released or emergency services not being able to operate. The author captures all this in these books a great listen one of the best post apocalyptic series on audible.

Great post apocalyptic book

This book kept me interested throughout. Usual twists and turns alongside many shady characters. Narrated well. Have brought the next three books for listening.

Dire

Macho stereotypes one pace forward. Misogynistic tosh. Waste of a credit. Can you tell I’m not a fan. Do not buy this title
