Based on hearsay Dillon Stockdale believes that his daughter died in the plane crash. Reluctantly, he and Holly Hudson along with his dog, Buster leave Louisiana and head back to Holly’s ranch in Hemphill, Texas. It has been over a week and the chances of even finding Cassie’s body are slim. The swamp claims everything that does not escape. Their trek back will be fraught with death and uncertainty. New friends and alliances will be made along the way. Once back on Holly’s ranch more trouble rears its head. Can Dillon and his group bring peace to the area or will they die trying?
Pike’s second novel in The EMP Survivor Series, Uncertain World: A Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian Survival Fiction Series, picks up within a few days of the first book. Holly’s character has been full of surprises. There’s more to her than the lovely lady attorney who’s a force to be reckoned with in a courtroom. Her ability to read witnesses provides her with a good judge of character.
Again, Pike has done her due diligence and the book is well edited and proofread. I can’t praise her enough for that. She tells a compelling story and her writing is maturing with each book. I still don’t like Buster having an inner voice, but that is a personal issue for me, nothing against Pike’s ability at all. The only complaint that I have about the storyline is that I think that Dillon would have noticed Amy’s necklace when he and Holly became intimate.
Good series. Read it!
5 out of 5 stars.
