New York Times bestselling author William R. Forstchen brings a sequel to his hit novel One Second After. Months before publication, One Second After was cited on the floor of Congress as a book all Americans should read, a book discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a truly realistic look at the dangers of EMPs. An EMP is a weapon with the power to destroy the entire United States in a single act of terrorism, in a single second; indeed, it is a weapon that the Wall Street Journal warns could shatter America. In the tradition of On the Beach, Fail Safe and Testament, One Second After was a dire warning of what might be our future...and our end. Now, One Year After returns to the small town of Black Mountain, and the man who struggled so hard to rebuild it in the wake of devastation-John Matherson. It is a thrilling follow-up and should delight fans in every way.

When I read the first book, "One Second After," I couldn't put that book down! I was happy when the this book finally arrived. As true to the first book, "One Year After" was just as wonderful. I again couldn't put it down as I needed to know what would happen next? Imagine how I felt when I learned that the author is working on the third book! I can't wait for that one to come out. These books should be read be everyone, not just recommended. I have learned many things in my life time, many just to have the knowledge just in case something like this ever did happen. The greatest of all my knowledge and survival... wasn't anything I learned in school. The reason I'm alive today, the reason I survived so many tragedies, was due to what I was taught by my tribe and the elders. Everything else I've learned was just icing on the cake. Well done author!!!

I got about half way through this book and then just found I couldn't bring myself to read it anymore. I found the story to be slow and tedious without really any further character development.
Basically it amounts to the same story as the first book - you better pray that a retired army officer lives in your neighbourhood during a disaster - or else. The constant overtone of pro-military service personal and the inherit corruption of public servants was just too simplistic.

This sequel did not disappoint. It made me has made me even more vigilant to watch people & their motives. We have gotten into complacency in America that we can just trust people, but as this author brings out, we must test the fruit of their actions before we trust. I did not expect this twist in the story & again it was excellently written.

Every group has an agenda. Left, right, middle Yada,Yada. Much sci fi these days seems politically motivated. Wearying.

Right-wing political agenda gets in the way of the plot and characterization. A disappointing effort.

This book is heavy on military action and defending territory. Still some good characters but not really what I was expecting.
