Nelson, his family, and friends continue to be ever vigilant against roving gangs and the corrupt federal government. As often as possible they seek those groups out far away from their home in hopes of destroying members of those groups and warding off those that would replace them. Being caught in a state that has yet to surrender to the feds or be claimed by the new Republic Nelson’s clan is trying not to attract the attentions of either group.
Watson’s third novel in the Forgotten Forbidden America series, Storm Front, is fast-paced and gritty. The need to be prepared to survive in the upcoming winter has everyone mindful of their resources. They can’t help everyone and expect to have what they need for their group. Nelson’s group reaches out to their neighbors to pull together and increase security. On their patrols away from the farm they find that the war between the feds and the Republic are closer to home than they had expected.
As with the second book in the series I again ended up hating Nelson. He is an egotistical, moody ass. He is smart and understands what is needed keep everyone safe and alive. But, he is often ruled by his emotions that are on the level of a hormonal teenager. Thankfully, the rest of the characters are more level-headed and counter his instability.
4 out of 5 stars. I look forward the next installment.
I received this book for free from the author for review consideration. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
