Skip Coryell isn't the type of author who pens conventional fiction. In his latest effort, The Shadow Militia, the grid is down, and modern-day conveniences are a thing of the past--available only for those who have prepared for the sudden collapse of society. The Shadow Militia's premise is two-edged; terrible for contemplation, but eerily plausible. In a culture content with allowing `someone else' to wrap them in a blanket of protection, the breakdown of civil order could hinge on the lack of everyday necessities--and the destructive greed of those with little regard for human life. Coryell's dystopian world embraces a scenario where the essentials are denied to the American populace, and with chilling results.

Dan Branch is caught in a fight for survival, along with his son, Jeremy, Dan's wife, Jackie, and their infant daughter, Donna. Each have a background of loss and desperation (depicted in the first book in the series, The God Virus), with Dan giving his family a tenuous grasp on their continued existence. It's a day to day battle to push through to the next challenge, and the threats are varied as they travel to Iroquois City.

Arriving at their destination, Dan finds another side to his Uncle Rodney, a man whose past has been purposely hidden in shadow. And with good reason; the elder Branch, now the commanding General of the Shadow Militia, has lived a lifetime waiting for the collapse of civilization, anticipating the brutal conflict that will result in an end-time civil war.

A principled man, Rodney has a respectable war machine of his own. But these weapons are held in check, and the reader is left to wonder just what the General is holding back.

I believe The Shadow Militia is without question Skip Coryell's greatest book ever!

Faced with a soon-approaching threat to their city, Gen. Rodney Branch must try to transform a ragtag band of civilians into an elite fighting force. Along the way, we discover the crazy uncle is really a combination of Robert E. Lee, George Patton, and the A-Team's Hannibal Smith

This book grabs you and doesn't let you go. I can't wait for the final book of the series!

The second installment of the Thousand Year Night trilogy, "The Shadow Militia" notches up the action. The first installment, "The God Virus" turned out the lights all over the fruited plain when terrorists take out the American infrastructure in a most unconventional way, through a computer virus. That virus took out the power grid and threw the United States into darkness and anarchy. Dan Branch transformed from a man who is behind the eight ball to a survivor. After making his way from Wisconsin to his childhood home in Michigan, Dan discovers that there was a lot he didn't know about his Uncle Rodney, the man who had raised him after his parents' deaths. Rodney Branch, as it turns out, is the commanding general of the secret Shadow Militia.

As "The Shadow Militia" opens, the Branches and their neighbors find themselves within days of being invaded by a horde of opportunistic gang members who have formed their own army to strip the countryside clean of everything in their path. Watching the Shadow Militia at work is a thing of beauty. The small unit tactics will both thrill and amaze while tempered by the loss and heartache that accompany any war. There is a lot to enjoy about this book that will keep you reading. "The Shadow Militia" is a stark illustration of the reason the founding fathers created the Militia Act.

This is one of those books where you notice whenever you come up for air that you are tense and your adrenaline is going. To me, this was equal parts a professional analysis of a collapse scenario and one heck of a story. Some of those most touching moments I've experienced on paper are in this book.

Despite what many might associate with the subject material, this is a thinking man's fiction. There's strategy and intrigue, personality and intellect, but what I noticed most was how the book grabbed me by the lapels and didn't let go until the ride was over! I can't wait for the next one!
