"Hard to put down. Can understand the magic number of tipping the environment and population over the limit. Scary, scary subject."

"I loved this set, and found the differing aspects of the basis for the story, global warming, societal problems, were excellent. As a confirmed climate change denier, I still loved reading about the changes in society as things all get tougher and tougher."

"I've gotten so immersed in this series that I can't say enough good things about it. The author's intimate knowledge of the subjects she's writing about really set it apart from the rest of the pack. Just when you think you know what's going to happen next, get ready for a surprise because she's never predictable. Dee Baker's life in these situations is a real roller coaster of events and emotions, so strap in and get ready for a real thrill ride."

"Lots of surprising twists and likeable characters. Not your usual apocalyptic scenario. It makes you think about where you would fit in and how you would react if the s*** really did hit the fan."

"Different kind of EOTW book. Loved the strong female lead character. Lots of action and intrigue abound."

If you enjoy vivid characters, thought-provoking world-building, and page-turning action, you'll love Ginger Booth's dystopian Calm Act series.

 

Book 1: End Game

As the U.S. unravels, media and corporation offer a shining grail of salvation: to be one of the select few to secure safety in an ark. Dee Baker’s Fortune 100 media job promises her an ark berth, and for backup she’s dating fun and wealthy ark-itect Adam. But fellow gardener and neighbor Zack plans to make his stand outside the arks. Dee needs to choose whether to protect herself, or risk it all to help others. Trying to have it both ways could be the riskiest gambit of all.
Book 2: Project Reunion

When Ebola strikes, the Calm Act surrounds New York City with armed borders. That assumes the rest of the Northeast is OK with letting millions die, in order to save themselves. Dee Baker and partner set out to prove otherwise and mobilize the Northeast to save New York, though the doing may tear them apart.
Book 3: Martial Lawless

When a martial law leader is murdered in Pittsburgh, Dee Baker and partner are dispatched to investigate. Plagued by tornados, and isolated under the Calm Act, Pittsburgh has gone rogue, its religious factions out of control, and it’s up to Dee and crew what to do about it. But the forces afoot are darker than they imagined. And Dee's about to fall into their trap.

Calm Act Genesis Prequel Stories:
Civilly Disobedient

Resourceful programmer Dee Baker is getting worried about climate change. Food prices are skyrocketing, the drought out west deepening, and the storms won’t quit. When her intrusive media employer forbids her to attend the worsening riots, Dee defies them to visit a rally, and see for herself what they’re trying to hide.
Dust of Kansas

A Dust Bowl is brewing to rival the worst hard times of the twentieth century Depression. Rivers and aquifers are running dry. Race riots and refugees fill the news. And Fort Leavenworth's Command School is doing something strange this year with its curriculum. Its officer scholars will focus on war-gaming a single scenario, in utter secrecy - the collapse of the United States due to climate change. Emmett MacLaren and his roommates are tasked with vetting the Calm Act, a plan to meet the climate change crisis with nation-wide martial law - and worse.
