A Mother’s Love

Standard

Unbound cover

Sloane Delaney and her daughters, Wren and Mae, find themselves almost totally alone in their neighborhood after a devastating tsunami wreaks havoc along the Oregon coast. Sloane is a strong woman and sets out to ensure that her daughters have what it takes to survive in the wake of this disaster. A crazy neighbor, no power or fresh water, wanders, and the government are among the many dangers thrown at them.

Shaw’s first book in the Dawn of Deception series, Unbound is a riveting novel set in a post-apocalyptic world. The ingenuity and determination of Sloane make for a fascinating read. The pace of the story varies and keeps your reading straight to the end.

Having a strong female protagonist in a post-apocalyptic setting is refreshing. Motherly love is overwhelming. Sloane will do whatever it takes to keep her children safe. Will she ever learn to trust again? We shall see in book two!

I highly recommend this book.

5 out of 5 stars.

Government Misdirection

Standard

Canine Plague Cover

Steven Bryant, his family, and friends are in a fight for their survival and that of their beloved pets, man’s best friend, their dogs. After a corrupted medical study goes viral chaos overtakes the country as everyone tries to save his or her dogs from euthanasia. But, why was this false report issued and with such great urgency? What is the ultimate goal of those that would cause such an upheaval?

Walker’s first novel, Canine Plague: A Post Apocalyptic Thriller is a refreshingly new entry into the apocalyptic genre. There are twists and turns and the ever-present government misdirection. When the lies and evil intents are exposed will the country fight back?

This book is obviously written by a highly educated person based upon the language used. It does not contain foul language but does have some violence.

For the most part, I loved this book. It showcased how a behind the scenes operation could easily be used to derail our constitutional liberties. The issues I had with the story are SPOILERS. So, stop reading now if you don’t want to know specifics about the book.

SPOILERS

The Kentucky Patriots have very good intentions to try and fight back against the State of Kentucky’s declaring of Martial Law. Their execution is very flawed. Taking out the power grid will cause many deaths of those whose health is dependent on medical devices run by electricity. Hospital generators will only be fueled for the short run and those within receiving critical care will surely die. Then those that need emergency care due to the violence from shortages and general mayhem will most likely die for lack of personnel showing up for work. In fact, this tactic is more of what I would expect from a terrorist group trying to overtake the populace.

Also, the KP wasn’t as sophisticated as the bragged to be. The lax OPSEC allowed a mole to uncover their plans and almost got them all killed.

Overall it is a good read and I would highly recommend it.

4 out of 5 stars.
