Lone Star Odyssey: First Steps

After over 20 years in the USMC and coming off a five year tour as a contractor in Afghanistan all Talon Clark wanted to do was spend time with his kids and wife on his ranch in Texas.

Occasionally, taking a short term contract job to pay the bills, Talon is marooned in Washington, D.C. when the nation is attacked by a series of false flag operations against our infrastructure and is then devastated by a series of EMP attacks. With every major city burning and the nation’s electrical grid down, civil order has deteriorated to the point of no return, at least for the immediate future.

Separated by over 1400 miles from his family, Talon sets out on foot to get home as fast as he can relying on his skills and experience. With only about a week’s worth of supplies in his get home bag, Talon must find supplies as quick as he can and get out of the D.C. Metro area before the chaos overwhelms him. From his first steps he finds out nothing is going to be easy or fast.

Amazon Reviews:

It was one of the best apocalyptic stories l have ever read. Full of information and resources that we all could use and need the shtf. It was very believable and well written. – Kindle Customer

This is a really good story with plenty of action. I especially liked the descriptions of equipment used. The mention of the LazerBrite light was great as I personally have several of these versatile light systems in my kits. The characters are believable and slowly grow on you. The trip is only beginning and I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series. – Broadwing

I listened to this on audible and I thought it was incredible. The level of detail, realistic scenarios, and the kind of leadership skills everyone should study. Tactically sound. Anyone who has ever walked in harms way will recognize the value of a quality leader and it is the difference between life and death. I would read this as a fictionalized combat field manual if the SHTF. Leadership skills, equipment, tactics, and strategy. Only real life combat experience can provide you the insight presented in this book. – Geist
