Jim Rutherford and a close circle of his friends are as prepared as anyone could be for a disaster. Once it hits they find themselves with limited options once Delaware City becomes overrun by terrorists. Thanks to Judith Hoskins, they have a small boat to carry additional supplies when they head out to sea. But, the ocean is not immune to criminal behavior.
Bird’s fifth novel in The New Homefront series, Viking One, can be read as a stand-alone novel. It steps away from the story of Evan and Jason while keeping to the same universe. The two stories dovetail into one another. The escape to the ocean was a nice change to the overland adventure.
I don’t know if Bird plans to continue their story and have them meet up with the folks in Tennessee, but I certainly hope he does. I have loved every moment of this series.
5 out of 5 stars.
