Raging Storm by Vannetta Chapman
In the Darkness,
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 forever. 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 get to 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.

In this second book in an eerily plausible, action-packed dystopian series, survival will be threatened and faith will be put to the ultimate test as a raging storm engulfs America.
About The Author
Once you turn that first page and get your bearings, remembering the first book Deep Shadows and the solar flare that put us where we are today.
I felt like I was reading a movie and I was one of the participants, and there were bullets whizzing past my head, and found myself ducking. Can you imagine even where you live; no more power and nothing with computer chips working? How would you survive, do we have the skills to, and found myself questioning my abilities, I do live in the country and have acreage, and a pond with fish. While you think about surviving the author reminds us that there is someone out there that wants all that you have even if they don’t need it, and will use all means to take it. There is no law, and the false profits have arisen in abundance, who to trust.
I have one big complaint, I was reading along and page turning, when boom, it was like I fell off a cliff, and I tried to turn another page, but there wasn’t anymore, now I am bidding my time for the next book, which can’t come fast enough.
I received this book through Net Galley, the Author, and the Publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
