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.
5 out of 5 stars.
