Cyber-Attacks. EMPs. Invasion. War. When the end comes, few will have the ability to survive.
Jack Bunker vowed to never step foot on another battlefield. But the former Combat Engineer’s new peaceful life in the Colorado mountains is shattered after an attack takes out America’s power grid. When suspicious activity plagues the nearby high-security military facility, Bunker fears he’ll soon have another war on his hands.
As the story unfolds, Bunker suspects a foreign invasion is imminent, leaving him no other choice but to somehow transform the mild-mannered townsfolk into military-grade guerrilla warriors. He knows if their small town falls, America won’t be far behind.
But his plan won’t be easy, not when his makeshift troops begin to pry into his painful past. Sharing the truth with them could cost him their trust and respect, but he’ll never earn their command by keeping what haunts him a secret.
The Bunker series is a high-octane post-apocalyptic thriller. If you like pulse-pounding action, resourceful warriors, and political intrigue, then you’ll love Jay J. Falconer’s explosive tale of true American grit.

Bunker just wants to go unnoticed because of his past that no one seems to know about he was a former member of the Kindred an outlaw motorcycle group with ties to white power something that he has tried to shed. This is his redemption story.
The author and narrator work together seamlessly through this omnibus set to keep the listener fully engaged if this is a genre that you enjoy. There is a ton of action and suspense to keep the most action-driven listener hooked as well as the character-driven drama between the lead male character and a few of the female characters. I was fully entertained the whole time and really enjoyed the audiobook omnibus edition.
The narration for the Bunker Box Set Books 1-3 Mission Critical Series is provided by Gary Tiedeman. This is the first time I’ve ever listened to anything he has narrated. Mr. Tiedeman provides a very good voice for narrating this series he gives a breadth and depth to each of the different characters and he does a good job narrating throughout the series he provides a good range of character voices for the men, women, and children and gets the listener emotionally invested in each of the characters. I really enjoyed his voice acting on the series. Production Value throughout the books was very good and of high-quality, there was never any hissing popping or any noticeable problems with the quality of this audiobook. Jay J. Falconer provided the publishing of this audiobook and did an excellent job.
