Hopefully there's a third installment to this series, and I can't believe I said that because I've previously said I dislike book series, but this one is well worth the effort to keep track of. At the end when N.C. Reed writes that others have complained about his character's speech (as though he must have misspelled their verbiage/conversations) I'd have to say I'm surprised, I followed it easily and understood the dialect and intent. There are a number of errors, however in the editing but that's certainly forgivable, as I don't know how e-books are translated but I'd love to know (they'd be so easy to fix.) As to constructive criticism for future books, my only comment would be character names, there were too many names that are the same, like Abigail, Angela & Alicia; Ronnie, Robert; Leon, Leanne, Lainie and so on, I'd have to backtrack to recall who was whom. Regardless, I love these characters and hope to find out how (I think its Alicia, turns out since Abigail saw the errors of her attitude.) I never stopped reading between books one and two.
Mr. Reed is a true storyteller, a bard of the finest sort, thank you for this story. The pacing is and has been fast and furious. Events continue to build and characters rise to meet them. World building is excellent and character development remains consistent and believable. The biggest problem I have is being dropped out of "suspension of disbelief" by the numerous spelling and grammatical errors that confuse a sentence so badly as to make me pause to parse the sentence. I'm not a lit. major, a teacher or a writer but if it makes me stop reading to understand what is being said then it is a problem, if only for me. -1 star. I will note that this book is quite a bit shorter than the opening book. I hope this is not a trend. All In All, A Great Addition To The Story, Eager For More Mr. Reed! Just My Opinion, YMMV!
This is the second book in the series and I'm sooo hooked! I can't wAit for the next book. Please, please hurry up and finish it!! And btw, I love the vernacular and "real speak". I mean come on...most folks do Not speak proper English. This is real conversational 'American' and I love it.
A successful story teller draws me into his world, and captivates me for hours with the story unfolding. This author has done that with these two books. Every hour spent lost in the books is an hour well spent. Some editing is needed because of homonyms in sentences and blank spaces within paragraphs. Some regional dialect is confusing but I have lived in the south so I get it. Please keep on writing!
Although it is a bit difficult to believe the start of the series, when Clay and Leon have what seems like unlimited funds to prepare for the collapse, the story is much more believable in the second book. Let's face it, who wouldn't want a trained and equipped special forces team on their side when TSHTF? Especially with the armored vehicles that came with them. I was a little unhappy with this book's ending, it seemed a bit sudden to me, but I enjoyed the story and hope there is a book three to see who is going to pitch-slap Abby into the next county!
Usual great story I've come to expect from Mr Reed. Good follow-up but now we need to see what's up with Abby... Turns out I have just as many goofy/unique people in my extended family as in Clayton's. Who knew? Keep up the hard work, Mr Reed, and get those sequels out...
Another excellent sortie by N.C. Reed. If you’re looking for great literature, this ‘ain’t it’ as one of N.C.’s characters might say. But if you’re looking for a fun read, with the wisdom and truth of the Southland, then you’ve got in spades with N.C. Reed, a great storyteller.
