I enjoyed reading this book, I liked the fact the main character wasn't perfect but she had a conscience and tried to do her best in difficult circumstances.I also liked some of the other characters, and thought they were all believable.What would any of us do if our world changed so dramatically ? I don't do spoilers so will just say thanks to the publishers and netgalley for the ARC.

Amazing book, sent shivers down my spine. 
The fact that it's a book quite different from the rest makes it even better. I couldn't stop reading because I just had to know what was going to happen to them. 
You just have to read this book, whether or not you like post-apocalytpic books, this one deserves your time.

This book was just ok for me. Easy read but not overly interesting. I hated the ending. I don't think that I would read a sequel if it was written.

The BEST post-apocalyptic book I have ever read! Grandma Bea is taking care of her four grandchildren while their parents and Bea's husband go to a game in Dallas. A train crash occurs close to Bea's house and they are forced to evacuate. So, Bea treats the kids to a night at the Four Season's Hotel.

The story becomes wilder and wilder as Bea and her four grandchildren return to her neighborhood. No water, cars do not run, cooking is limited, no phones, no internet, no electricity or heat. (Or, in Austin, no air conditioning).

Bea has money and had built quite a super-stocked survival house in secret. Yet, she finds out that USING this house and its' well-stocked contents is not as easy as she thought it would be...

And as the weeks go on... what happened to her husband and daughters in Dallas?

An extremely powerful book that held my attention completely!

HIGHLY recommend.

Many Thanks to Southern Fried Karma Press and NetGalley for a wonderful read!

If Darkness Takes Us is an amazing book. A lot of thrilling pieces have blended with suspense and romance here. It is full of emotions. An older woman's hope for future has reflected here. Complicated relationships also pointed here. I am very interested to know the consequences of the characters! It is really a enjoyable post-apocalyptic fiction.

One of the best “end of days” thrillers I have ever read. This genre is my guilty pleasure and it did not disappoint. So good I finished in just a few hours without ever closing the book.

FINALLY! This book has an older woman protecting her grandkids from forces beyond her control. I loved this book. There are many post apocalyptic books out there, featuring men, young adults, some women. But this book stands apart. This is the point of a 70 year old woman who has desires, dreams, and hopes for the future.
This is stand alone story telling and it was breathtaking in its relationships and the EMP that happened.
I can't stop raving about this book. 
So refreshing to get this perspective, I  hope that the author does a sequel. I need to know what happens next to the family and with Jack!
