New Sheriff New Rules

Standard

Enforcing Home cover

Morgan is settling into his new role as sheriff and is trying to set a positive example. With the help of his family and close-knit friends, they try to bring peace and a sense of normalcy to their community. But, a new group of marauders has arrived and is stirring up trouble. Not only that, but a nemesis long since thought vanquished has returned for revenge.

American’s sixth novel in The Survivalist, Enforcing Home, continues the story of Morgan, Sarge, and the clan that has settled into Morgan’s neighborhood. Every day brings new challenges and danger. Nothing can be taken for granted. Life is hard and not everyone is willing to do what it takes to survive. Instead, they would rather take from others.

I’m embarrassed to say that somehow, I skipped from book 5 straight to book 8 without even realizing it. To me that says that A. American is a phenomenal writer.

Nowhere is Safe

Standard

Democide

Charlie and her companions are hunkered down near DHS headquarters waiting for word from John as to when it would be least dangerous to travel and what would be their best route. They have learned that DHS are more like gestapo and the FEMA camps are more akin to prisons.

Browning’s and American’s formal novel in the Charlie’s Requiem series, Democide, follows Charlie, Dr. Kramer, and Beker as they each deal with the aftermath of an EMP attack on the USA.  While each must adapt to a life without power and the accompanying first world problems, the harsh reality of their government’s intentions are alarming.

I am so happy these two authors decided to continue Charlie’s story with a full-length novel with the promise of more in the upcoming months.

5 out of 5 stars. If I could give 100 stars for this I would.

The Russians are coming!

Standard

Home Invasion

After setting the FEMA camp free from DHS control things settled down into a somewhat normal life for Morgan and his friends. The community was working together for the most part to bring in a good crop of vegetables for everyone to share. Then a group of strangers show up that upset their fragile new world.

American’s eighth novel in The Survivalist Series, Home Invasion, follows Morgan and his group as they confront an enemy that is beyond their capabilities to defend against. Are they going to have to run to survive this new threat? What about the threat from the West coast?

This realistic tale of what could happen should an EMP disable the USA is a very compelling read.

Escaping the masses

Standard

Charlies Requiem

Charlie, aka Charlotte, is a pharmaceutical rep visiting one of her clients in the Orlando area when an EMP hits the USA. The doctor realizes what has happened and the danger all his employees and patients are in. Hundreds of thousands of tourists along with the residents of Orlando are suddenly without any means to travel home or survive. This story focuses on Charlie’s adventure as she tries to get to safety with several traveling companions.

This novella is a joint effort by Angery American and Walt Browning. It is a companion work to the Going Home series by A. American. Instead of focusing on the microcosm of Morgan’s world, it explores the disaster from the perspective of non-preppers caught in the masses of humanity.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella and am happy to see that the authors have decided to continue Charlie’s story with full length novels.

Should I Stay or Should I Go Now?

Standard

Resurrecting Home cover

Morgan Carter and his extended family are back in their old neighborhood after the liberation of the FEMA/DHS camp. Some of their friends from the camp have joined their crew. With the ever-increasing numbers of mouths to feed, getting a garden planted and hunting have taken all their efforts. Once one threat is seemingly eliminated another crops up to take its place. Now, a wild fire is spreading across Florida unchecked with no rain in site and is heading in Carter’s direction. Meanwhile, the worst of mankind is still out there.

American’s fifth novel in The Survivalist Series, Resurrecting Home, follows Carter as he tries to find ways to redirect the fire so that his group does not have to leave their homes again. After running some threats out of their neighborhood, they realize that a 24/7 watch must be posted. Along with all the other chores needing attention, such as hunting, a schedule must be drawn up. It is amazing to see how willing folks are to work together to survive. The group dynamics change but so far everyone is on board.

Even with the wildfire threat it is nice to see burgeoning friendships moving towards relationships. Along with the defeat locally of the FEMA/DHS folks love being in the air provides hope that things will get better. While things will never be the way they were in the Before, this slower, simpler life seems to be agreeing with those that have survived thus far. American does a great job of detailing everyday life as it is now.

Sometimes the Good Guys Really Win

Standard

Forsaking Home cover

Morgan Carter and his extended family of friends have bugged out to a secluded area along the river into rustic cabins. Sarge and his crew have joined them temporarily. But, the more that they settle in the more outside influences threaten their survival. Things at the FEMA camp are going from bad to worse for Jess and her friends. And, the National Guard is planning to turn the place upside down.

American’s forth novel in The Survivalist Series, Forsaking Home, follows Carter as he tries to make the cabins in the woods as homelike as possible. With the move comes more of the mental challenges of survival. Up until now most of them lived in their home and that served as an anchor point to the Before. Jess soon finds out that there is a feudal-like structure to the FEMA camp. Those with DHS that feed off the fears of others are thriving with power over the citizen prisoners. Will the Guard succeed?

Each book in the series brings in new characters and some of the lesser reoccurring ones. It is a small world now with so many folks either relocated or having died. It’s a dog eat dog environment now. If you don’t destroy a threat when you first encounter it, then you had better watch your back. It is a time where like-minded survivors need to come together so that they have more security.

If you liked the first three books in this series, you will enjoy this one just as much.

Time to Cut Your Losses

Standard

Escaping Home

Morgan Carter feels that he has done what was needed to survive in an economic collapse such as the one the country Is now in. As more of his neighbors either flee to the FEMA camps or die due to starvation or suicide, he finds him and his allies are under constant attack by raiders and sniper fire. None of them want to leave, but what is the price that they will pay if they stay? And, with the rumors that the FEMA camps are more like prison camps, what are their bug out options?

American’s third novel in The Survivalist Series, Escaping Home, showcases the struggles that Morgan faces with trying to balance staying at their home and keeping his family safe. Can he convince his family to relocate if the time comes they can no longer sustain their home? This book also picks back up the story of Jess and what has happened with her and her family since Morgan got her safely to her parents.

Another well written, well edited story in the series. The characters are very diverse and quite complex. The tale is every bit as gritty as those before. I really love this series.
