Tom Horn and what’s left of his intrepid crew continue their journey to find a hidden refuge. They have been unceremoniously kicked out of Stoney Creek based solely on misinformation about the death of the sheriff. Carlos Fox, a former hitman for the cartel, gave Tom his life back if he and his group stay clear of Clarksdale. They can’t go towards Prescott as the escaped convicts have taken over that area. So, that leaves Sedona. Will they find something close enough to scavenge from town and yet, remain undetected?
Newman’s second novel in the Post Apocalyptic Survival Fiction series, EMP Chaos in the Storm, tends to meander from topic to topic. The story is interesting and mentions many ways to scrounge up an existence in the new world.
Again, there are several plot holes and many typos. The book ends as though there may or may not be another but with no cliffhanger.
3 out of 5 stars.
