Awesome read!!!!

This book and its characters are so real I found myself totally immersed in the story. I did not want it to end, but I was pleasantly surprised that the ending left me satisfied and hopeful for a sequel!!! I will not only recommend this book to my family & friends, I also plan to give it as a Christmas present this year.

A must read!
This was a well-researched, fast-paced book. While this is not my usual genre, the synopsis drew me in. I could not turn the pages fast enough. The characters were so real and believable! Lisa Poche Calhoun made this reader feel as though she was part of the apocalypse. I could have been a character within this book. I could not wait to see what would happen next. As a high school English teacher, I will be recommending this book to several of my students who enjoy reading this genre. It is well-written and not filled with vulgarity. While I am 100% satisfied with how this book ended, I hope Lisa writes a sequel as she certainly left the end open enough to do so.

Couldn't put it down!!!
Heard how good it was from friends in the States, so ordered the first copy to hit Australian shores and Loved It!!! Hope the rest of Australia catches on....

Captivating, Realistic & Couldnt put it down!! The characters definitely made you want to take the journey with them... Found myself wanting to finish & start the next chapter to find out what happens next - I thank Lisa for getting me through my night shifts...

Hoping for a sequel & am lining up for the mini series... am already thinking who I would like to play 'Colt' & 'Abby'
Being your 1st novel Lisa - I can't wait for your next - I'm not a huge book worm but this was absolutely a page turner for me....

Amazing Astronomical Adventure
Superflare: The Fortunate Ones stands out from the horde of disaster novels focusing on impossible events. Unlike many novels, which focus on the devastation, this story is grounded with the cast as we go alongside them in the aftermath. The characters are incredibly lifelike and the book is a ride you don't want to put down once you pick it up.

The Carrington Event of 1859 that wreaked havoc with the telegraph system is mentioned within the novel. A modern day Carrington Event would cripple our way of life and in many ways our very survival. This book paints a picture of what could happen if we weren't prepared for such a disaster and what skills might be needed to be one of the fortunate ones.

A Fantastic Read
What a GREAT story. Very well written and I love it that it's not full of curse words. The story is told in "present day" and in a way that everyone should relate to. The romantic interest adds to the detailed daily life of the survivors. I will recommend it to my friends and family and will definitely want to read her next book!

The Fortunate Ones is a wonderfully researched and written novel
Superflare:The Fortunate Ones is a wonderfully researched and written novel. The premise is a legitimate "this could happen" disaster, so the reader cannot help but get immersed in the dramatic event and its aftermath. The story has great detail in character, scene, and action development and will definitely grab your attention. It will also leave you questioning your own disaster readiness. Enjoyable read. Looking forward to what comes next!

Realistic and gripping, I could hardly put it down!
What a great read! The accurate, historical details compliment the well developed, very "real" characters wonderfully. This book is so believable it's a bit scary and definitely got me in "prepper" mode. The attention to detail and obviously well-researched plot make this book a must read. I could hardly put it down and now that I've finished it I am sad it's over and am eagerly awaiting a sequel!

Post Apocalyptic drama with romance and contemporary western issues.
This is a well researched book. It's apparent that Mrs. Calhoun knows farms and horses. Unless she as an astrophysicist, she'd done an excellent job of researching her material about solar flares, EMPs (electromagnetic pulses) and their effects on electronics. The story line is mixed with both family life and romance. The plot is well thought out.

I highly recommend this book.

I love to read. Superflare: The Fortunate Ones is definitely one I will remember! This book would be a great Christmas gift!
This book is a very real post apocalyptic situation. The characters are definitely believable. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline. One of those books that I believe would make a great movie or series. I can see this storyline continuing for years!!! Now I have goals of teaching my children and grandchildren "real" survival skills.
Amazon reviewer Sarah Boise gave Superflare: The Fortunate Ones starstarstarstarstar

Love it!!
I'm not generally a big post-apocalyptic or western reader. With that in mind, this book grabbed me from the first chapter. The characters are very interesting, and the family dynamic is amazing. I was constantly on the edge of my seat waiting to see what they would go through next, but more importantly, how they would handle it. The time and research that went into this is absolutely apparent because it's all very accurate. All around an interesting and impressive read!!
Amazon reviewer Sandra Madsen gave Superflare: The Fortunate Ones starstarstarstarstar

Five Stars!
This is definitely a must read. You can get lost in this and can't put it down. Well done!

  Reviews from the book's advanced readers:  
"In a world full of Zombie and Vampire novels, it's nice to read a well-written post apocalyptic novel that is so totally believable. It was easy to get 'into the world' and stay there. Superflare: The Fortunate Ones really makes you stop and think 'Am I prepared?'"  – Nancy Carroll
"Superflare: The Fortunate Ones is a new generation of classic. Every word, every detail is significant. The characters are so well-developed and real, you feel as if you can reach through the pages and touch them. This is worth your time."  Patricia L. Hoff
"I recommend the book Superflare: The Fortunate Ones to everyone who wants an attention-getting, interesting, can’t-put-it-down, book to read. It got and held my attention from the very first page to the very last page. It’s very thought provoking and makes you think about being prepared and if you could survive."  – Billy Sperber
"Superflare: The Fortunate Ones begins with a star phenomenon that allows the reader to explore this rare occurrence as a plausible event in a setting the author knows both culturally and historically. A super flare emitted (EMP) from our sun destroys the electrical grid and communication systems. Through narrative and dialogue Cal-houn weaves the lives of her Southern characters as they struggle to survive in this new existence. Readers are quickly drawn into the lives of those who have the ability to adapt to this new world and to those who find their total dependence on our present day technology becomes their doom. The novel ultimately leads its readers to con-sider the reality of a world without modern infrastructure and wonder if they would be among the fortunate ones. For those of us who love to engage in “What If” scenarios, Superflare: The Fortunate Ones is a must read." – Kaye Millard, Editor of Superflare: The Fortunate Ones
"Superflare: The Fortunate Ones was a very enjoyable read and educational, too. I liked the twist and turns the story took. The author used the perfect amount of detail to put me in there, submerged in the ordeal with these people. It brings attention to prepping, and it made me think about what I would do if this happened to me." – Debra Dennis
