Book Review of Blackout by Jason Elam; Steve Yohn!


Riley Covington is still reeling from his father’s brutal murder when he learns he’s been traded. Meanwhile, the counterterrorism division has detected a plot to detonate electromagnetic pulse bombs that could leave the U.S. without power, communications, and transportation–right down to dropping planes out of the sky. CTD scrambles to stop the attacks, but they run out of time. Amid the fallout, Riley, Scott, Skeeter, and CTD must regroup to make sure the second bomb doesn’t reach its destination.



This had such a sad feel in it, so dark, so much pain, and death. *sighs* With the bombings and a city going dark this novel shows so much truth of how people act, treat others, and how they live. This thriller has such a wide range of subjects covered, I did feel parts were unrealistic like Riley’s part in finding the EMPs but I may be wrong, I loved reading about the team, their goofiness, the crazy ideas they have, and everything about them, seeing Scott step into the leadership position he had was neat, I loved seeing his character development.

Honestly I loved this but it was so dark/violent/and sad.
