Sins Consumed

Standard

FFA Sin Eaters     Nelson Jackson is no more, only the Reaper remains. The group of Sin Eaters that he leads is wreaking havoc on those that seek to take down the Republic. It is their greatest hope to help the Republic regain control of our nation. The Federal States is bent on destroying those that try to exercise their constitutional rights.

Watson’s fifth novel in the Forgotten Forbidden America Series, Sin Eaters is the most intense yet. What was once just an annoying gnat to the Federal States is now a swarm of angry hornets. And, any other nation that tries to assist the Federal States has the Sin Eaters visited upon them.

As dark as the writing is for this book therein lies several moments of levity. It is well balanced and helps break the tension. Watson does an excellent job of bringing out all of the reader’s emotions. What remains to be seen is if there is hope of rescuing Nelson from his Reaper persona should the Federal States be taken down.

Stick it to the Man

Standard

DoD3 cover     Sloane Delaney and the community of Cannon Beach, Oregon have come together to take back their town and fight those that seek to stop them. Tale, the imposed king of Astoria, has other plans for these good folks. Sloane’s group has no intention of backing down. They will stand their ground no matter what it takes.

Shaw’s third novel in the Dawn of Deception Series, Unbeaten: A Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller is the classic David and Goliath story. It takes a lot of training and dedication to survive in this new world. With the right plans in place, a smaller force can overtake a larger, more complacent one.

It’s sad to see this series come to an end. Sloane has been such an inspirational female protagonist. She has become an unwitting leader and is respected among her peers.

Justice Or Death

Standard

The Amendment Killer cover   Retired U.S. District Court Judge Cyrus Brooks is defending an amendment to the Constitution before the Supreme Court when he realizes his friend and Supreme Court Justice, Arnold Hirschfeld is acting anything but normal. With help from D.C. homicide detective Frank Lotello, they discover Hirschfeld’s granddaughter has been kidnapped in order to sway the Court’s decision.

Barak’s first novel in the Brooks/Lotello Thriller series, The Amendment Killer is full of suspense and intrigue. The kidnapper, Tommy Thomas psychosis changes as the book progresses. He transitions to what I would call reverse Stockholm Syndrome, also known as Lima Syndrome. It’s a fascinating read.

The story is well written and hooks you from the very start. It’s hard to put down and keeps you guessing. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

Friend or Foe?

Standard

The Road To Hell cover     Sidney Bannister is still struggling to survive at a rural homestead outside of Liberal, Kansas. Her group was lucky enough to be accepted into the Carpenter fold over the winter so long as they agreed to help with spring planting. It is not time to become complacent though. Not only do they must stay vigilant to ward off the infected they now have to watch out for the Iranians who are making the local airport into their base. Who knows if they or friend or foe?

Parker’s novel is the sixth in the Five Roads to Texas series. The Road to Hell: Sidney’s Way continues Sidney’s story shortly after she gives birth to her son. To add to her street smarts Jake Murphy has been training her and the others in self-defense and the use of firearms. Her character is growing and maturing especially with the responsibility of motherhood.

The book was well edited. It is a fast read and full of action.

Even though the reason was explained I still find it hard to believe that the Army would waste the resources in an apocalyptic event such as this to track down a soldier who was AWOL.
