Dead Lines by Grace Hamilton #Review

911 operator Jim Parker wants—more than anything—to be useful again. When a catastrophic EMP strikes, and he’s the last person a kidnapped girl speaks to before the lines go dead, he knows he can’t let her down. Especially when the circumstances are so similar to his own daughter’s disappearance. With the world falling apart around him, he wants to do nothing more than retreat to his prepper cabin. But with a fresh lead on his daughter, and another innocent girl’s life on the line, the disgraced cop will do everything in his power to track them down.

Finn Meyers has lost Ava, her best, and only, friend in the world, but she knows where the missing young woman might be—and perhaps Parker’s long lost daughter. Now, Parker must form an uneasy alliance and tackle his own internal demons as the two begin a perilous journey that will take them to the headquarters of a mysterious cult in Indiana.

But what they find along the way will shatter all their preconceptions—and threaten the world as they know it. Can a has-been and a has-not save the innocent, and stop a disaster from happening?

This book has scenes of graphic violence, not suited for all readers. 

James Parker is a disgraced ex cop turned 911 operator. He’s also a prepper, ready for any type of apocalypse. One night at the apocalypse hits at end of his shift right when he gets a call that only lasts 23 seconds.

Ava Talbot has been taken by a mysterious and dangerous cult. She steals a cell phone and escapes long  enough to call 911.
Finn Meyer is Ava’s best and only friend. She thinks she knows where Ava might be and also just maybe James’ missing daughter Sara.
James decides to go looking for Ava even though all he has is a name and a zip code. Can he and Finn form an alliance to make the dangerous journey to the headquarters of the cult? Can James put aside his personal demons to save Ava?
 I couldn’t put this book down, I was up well past my bedtime reading this fast paced novel about survival and hope. I also like all the prepper information the author sprinkled through out the book. The writing brings the characters and scenes to life and I can’t wait to read the next in this heart pounding end of the world as we know it story. And the ending OMG what a cliff hanger and actually the perfect place to end the book. Now I have to impatiently wait for the next book in this great series.
One of my favorite quotes from the book sums the whole apocalypse into just a few sentences, “This situation is so FUBAR, Parker,” he said. “No cell service to call for help, no ambulance to come if we did; just people dying and no one able to do any fucking thing about it.”
Another that fits into this book perfectly,  “Barbarianism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is the whim of circumstance. And barbarianism must ultimately triumph,”  Robert E. Howard Johnson
