Don’t Mess With My Family

Standard

The Mad Mick cover

Conor Maguire built a secure compound in the mountains of Virginia before the world changed and has only recently sought out his remote neighbors to establish trade and exchange information. His only daughter, Barb has been kidnapped by slavers. Little do they know that Conor is known as “The Mad Mick” due to his IRA family background and training. He’s gained that reputation while producing weapons for the government for special purposes abroad. Barb’s mother died when she was a toddler, and Conor has raised her to be as deadly as him. These kidnappers have no idea what Hell on Earth they have unleashed upon themselves.

Horton’s first novel in The Mad Mick Series, The Mad Mick is a spinoff from his The Borrowed World series. It is everything you’ve come to expect in the post-apocalyptic world that Horton has designed. He brings the main characters, Conor, Barb, and Ragus to life in a way that there is no doubt in your mind who they are and what they can do.

Kudos to the editing team. I noticed no typos, contextual errors, or plot holes. Fair warning though, this story is not for the faint of heart. The violence is vividly described.

I am looking forward to more from The Mad Mick.

Whose Child Is It?

Standard

Spy for Hire cover

Mark Sava has been kicked out of Azerbaijan – permanently. He currently resided in Kyrgyzstan with his girlfriend, Daria Buckingham. Both are former CIA operatives. Daria has left the spy world for more altruistic endeavors. While Mark is now working for Central Asian Information Networks (CAIN), a spy for hire corporation. In an ordinary world the orphanage that Daria works for would not be involved in a covert spy op. But, Mark’s world is far from ordinary.

Mayland’s third novel in the Mark Sava Spy series, Spy for Hire puts a two-year-old orphan in the middle of a power struggle from Kyrgyzstan to India and to Bahrain. Like any good mystery there are several twists and false leads that keep you guessing until the very end.

CAIN is the starting point and the owner, Bruce Holtz had decided not to tell Mark. Not knowing whom to trust he calls in John Decker to protect the child until things are sorted out. The players use Mark’s past against him. All he wants to do is right by the child.

History Must Be Preserved

Standard

Fire of Our Fathers

***THE RELEASE DATE FOR THIS NOVEL HAS NOT YET BEEN DETERMINED***

Richmond Monroe is an antique dealer located in Panama who will do almost anything to secure an object for his patrons. When his community and livelihood are threated he makes a deal using his services in hopes of stopping the imminent destruction. The quest takes him on a journey through history within what remains of the southern US. What is an enigma wrapped in a mystery becomes even more complex as it unravels.

Champlin’s first novel in the Heritage of Liberty series, Fire of Our Fathers is a fascinating twist combination of treasure hunting and restoration of the rights of the American people. Written sometime in the future it mixes the past with what could have been, alternative history is you will.

While reading this book I was reminded of the writings of Clive Cussler. I think with a little more polish that Champlin will rival him in the future.

Relaxing Is Not An Option

Standard

War Zone cover

Nathen Owens and his ragtag adopted family have finally made it to the compound in Idaho. While those already ensconced in the redoubt are thrilled to have him home they quickly realize that they need to double up on their survival skills. The news Nathan brings about their journey across the country is grim. Danger is no longer out there somewhere, it is in their own backyard.

Watson’s and Allen’s fourth novel in the Dark Titan series, War Zone: Homefront is one of the best post-apocalyptic books I’ve read to date. It is witty, humorous, and frightening all at the same time. The story grabs you by the collar and never lets go. The levity interspersed with the dark reality of evil that has been unleashed upon the US is in perfect balance.

It was refreshing to see all the characters from the previous books in the series having retained their unique personalities. The new characters brought a new dimension to the story. Though Nathan is the protagonist, Emma quickly steals the show. She has everyone wrapped around her little finger.

Too bad I can’t give this book more than 5 stars as it certainly deserves it.

To Believe Is To Die

Standard

The Believers cover

Riley Meemick has successfully rescued her mother from The Breeders. But, not before they implanted one of their experimental fetuses into her. The road is hard on Riley’s mother as the baby is growing at an accelerated rate. A group of mutants capture Riley and her group and take them to the self-proclaimed Messiah at the Citadel. Their intent is for the group to join the believers and consume the tainted holy water as a display of faith. All Riley wants to do is to escape and find her Auntie.

French’s second novel in The Breeders series, The Believers is a dystopian romance. It’s an easy read and is paced well. The editing is much better than the first book. The story is sad and at times heartbreaking.

The Breeders are relentless in the pursuit of any free female. They will not give up their search for Riley. Hopefully, with Clay’s help, she can stay hidden.

4 out of 5 stars.
