Blake Jackson has decided to take his former blog to the radio. Folks around the country start sharing their experiences to help one another live in this new reality without power. At the same time Michael, John, and the kids leave their mountain hideaway only to be captured by NATO forces and placed in a FEMA camp. Life there is barely scraping by with a shortage of supplies.
Craven’s fifth novella in The World Burns series, The World Bleeds: A Post-Apocalyptic Story, continues the struggles of the Jackson homestead. The homestead is adding survivors and has become a regular community of like-minded individuals that are self-reliant. The FEMA camps being run by NATO forces are little more than internment camps with forced labor. Conditions there are bad even for those that ended up there voluntarily.
These stories can serve as learning opportunities as well as a good read. They make me think about what we would need to know to survive a catastrophe. I am enjoying this series.
5 out of 5 stars.
