The first three books in the Children of the Mountain series: Among Wolves, The Devil You Know and Lightning Child. Gabriel remembers the Last Day. He and Mags had been on a tour of the White House with the rest of Miss Kimble’s first-graders when it happened. They fled with the President to a long-abandoned bunker, even as the first of the bombs began to fall. Ten years have passed, and Gabriel still lives deep inside the mountain, waiting for the world to thaw. But outside the storms continue to rage, and supplies are running low. The President says it will be okay, because they are the Chosen Ones. But Gabriel isn’t so sure. Gabriel’s their scavenger, and he’s seen what it’s like out there. ​ Then one day Gabriel finds a bloodstained map. The blood’s not a problem, nor are the frozen remains of the person it once belonged to; there's far worse to be found in any Walmart or Piggly Wiggly you care to wander into. Except this one he recognizes, and it shouldn’t be all the way out here. Now all Gabriel can think is how he's going to make it back to the bunker and let the President know what he's found. But Gabriel's troubles are only just beginning. For things are not as they seem inside the mountain, and soon he will face a much larger problem: how to get Mags and the others out.

    I really enjoyed these books, so much so that I bought Book 4 and eagerly await Book 5. The characters were beautifully formed and such an original apocalyptic idea. Great pace and so exciting, I almost skipped bits to get to the next and found it hard to put down. The only reason I didn't give a five star is I felt there were places where it could have been less descriptive when reading about the journeys. I would thoroughly recommend this series, it would be wonderful to see this on the screen I really enjoyed these books, so much so that I bought Book 4 and eagerly await Book 5.

    What a great read!! This is a unique view of the end of the world as we know it. Virus, nukes, school children, what is left of the government…you name it, it’s here Gabe and Mags through thick and thin. Gotta love these two. And now Johnny makes it a trio, poor kid. What a life he’s had. This box set is fast paced with twists and turns that will surprise you. And I see there is now another book waiting for me. Thank you for the great story R. A. Hakok! I love it.

    I liked books 2 & 3 better than book 1 I read book 1 already, but buying this set was cheaper than buying the books individually. So,essentially I only read 2 & 3 from this collection. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed these two much more than I did book 1. I hope the author publishes book 4soon!

    Good Read Good story line. Good pace. Basically kept my interest the whole way. I realize it’s the genre, but the near death, after near death, after near death, gets a little old. But then I read all three books in 3 days so it was a bit concentrated. Looking forward to the next book. Good luck in your future writing pursuits!!

    Interesting I would have given it a 5 star rating, but there were a few glaring spelling and punctuation errors. The author is great at world building and character development. You really start pulling for the hero and the heroine of this story. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the apocalyptic or end of the world stories.

    Loved the series! I thought the whole series so far was well written, I could picture each of the main characters in my head and I found the whole concept scary as hell and unfortunately not unrealistic. Good job ! Looking forward to next book of the series.

    Compelling story This was a unique twist on the usual post apocalyptic fiction plots. I enjoyed the characters and am looking forward to book 4 to see how the 3 kids survive their trip north.
