Morgan Carter and his extended family of friends have bugged out to a secluded area along the river into rustic cabins. Sarge and his crew have joined them temporarily. But, the more that they settle in the more outside influences threaten their survival. Things at the FEMA camp are going from bad to worse for Jess and her friends. And, the National Guard is planning to turn the place upside down.
American’s forth novel in The Survivalist Series, Forsaking Home, follows Carter as he tries to make the cabins in the woods as homelike as possible. With the move comes more of the mental challenges of survival. Up until now most of them lived in their home and that served as an anchor point to the Before. Jess soon finds out that there is a feudal-like structure to the FEMA camp. Those with DHS that feed off the fears of others are thriving with power over the citizen prisoners. Will the Guard succeed?
Each book in the series brings in new characters and some of the lesser reoccurring ones. It is a small world now with so many folks either relocated or having died. It’s a dog eat dog environment now. If you don’t destroy a threat when you first encounter it, then you had better watch your back. It is a time where like-minded survivors need to come together so that they have more security.
If you liked the first three books in this series, you will enjoy this one just as much.
5 out of 5 stars.
