I am one of those people who was disappointed by some recent Mitch Rapp books. To be honest, I wasn't totally enthused when I started reading "Total Power", preparing for another disappointment. Wrong! This book turns out to be a really good and an exciting one. Believable threat of major blackout across the USA. Only wish there were more Mitch action. If you said that you're done with this series, try one more! ( )

Love the premise of this one but felt the story was a bit flat for the characters. ( )

Total Power, Vince Flynn, Kyle Mills, authors; George Guidall, narrator
When a diabolical plan is hatched to knock out America’s power grid, for an indeterminate amount of time, the 19th book in the Mitch Rapp series is born. Who will take the bait when a madman offers the enemies of the United States the opportunity to destroy the country by wiping out its entire electrical grid? Will it be the usual suspects? Unraveling America will unravel the world too, eventually, so that is the first clue about which country will have the highest motivation and least concern for collateral damage.
Interest and tension slowly build as Mitch is called upon to find the terrorist responsible for the attack on the grid. As the country slowly descends into chaos, as weeks without power pass, as lifesaving supplies dwindle, he fights evil, looking for it in unexpected places. He is often thwarted by the mind of the maniac who is bent on revenge against America, but with an unknown reason. The savior in the situation is fairly obvious from the beginning, as is the demon, but it doesn’t detract from the mystery that is being solved or the danger that is being intercepted and mitigated. It is the good guys vs. the bad guys and we are never sure who will win or what the prize will be, until the very end.
Will the mastermind of the impending disaster master this battle or will the results of his efforts be catastrophic? Will he be prevented from starting Armageddon or, once started, will he be stopped before the world tumbles into complete chaos? At times one has to suspend disbelief, but at no time is it boring!
It is a good read, as an audiobook, since Guidall is a great interpreter of the narrative and characters. If you are going for a walk or a drive, enjoy! ( )

Total Power by Kyle Mills, is so fabulous, that not only did it blow me away, but it scared the stuffing out of me. If this really happens, we are in so much trouble. I am proud to say that I was chosen as a Mitch Rapp Ambassador and even if I wasn’t, I would still be shouting from the rooftops how much I love this book. Total Power picks up right after Lethal Agent, and Mitch and his team is tasked once again, with saving us all.

Can you imagine what would happen to our country if our entire power grid was taken down and can’t be quickly recovered? Well, that is what happens in Total Power. When a CIA mission to stop an ISIS attack fails, the entire USA Power grid is not only taken down, but the estimates to bring it back up, could take months if not years. No technology is a given without power, but what about no water, fuel, food. How about how this affects our hospitals, education, economy and sanitation. Sound scary, it was something I couldn't imagine before reading this, but Kyle Mills brings this terrifying situation to life so realistically, that I had a hard time sleeping after reading this book.

One of the things I love the most about the Mitch Rapp series, is that it is so believable and current with what either is going on in our country, has gone on or could go on. In Lethal Agent, Mitch had to deal with a weaponized virus (does that make you second guess about what is going on now in our country now, even just a little bit). So while trying to help our country this time, he runs into our government dragging its feet amongst the upcoming presidential election and how every decision will reflect on the outgoing and possibly incoming government. Again, a little too real to make you feel comfortable. It almost feels as if Kyle Mills can look into our future and set the stage as to what could happen to all of us. I hope that isn’t the case with this book. Again, it was terrifying, how this can happen and how it will affect us all. All that being said, I couldn’t put this book down and read it in a day. You will be scared for, a little amused, wistful and proud of Mitch and his team in this book. I hope we really have warriors like this protecting our country.

The books Kyle writes are so well researched I was glad to read in the Author’s Note in the beginning of this book, that the details of how this could all be carried out had been purposefully fictionalized and obscured. A thriller like this, that is so incredibly realistic, you just don’t want to put out a guide as to how to destroy America.

After this one, I can not in all seriousness imagine what Kyle will come up with next for Mitch and his team to fix for America.

As with all of the books in this series, the books need to be read in order to understand all of the nuances. This is the 19th book in the Mitch Rapp series. Total Power comes out September 15th, 2020 at your favorite book stores. ( )
