This book is well worth the price and well to be honest I have read books that cost a whole heck of a lot more, that were not worth the asking price.
Like the previous books in this series as well as the Alone series there were a few grammatical errors. Nothing serious, but still something that is easily corrected. For instance ""He's been in love for you for years". Like I said nothing that another proof read could not catch, but not something that could not be overlooked easily.
Writing a review is hard, well it is for me, because I want to do right by the author and of course for subsequent or potential readers as well. I have well over 1000 books on my Kindle and have moved this series from my all time favorite tab, to a tab under the author's name.
That is something that I usually only do if I re-read, and re-read an author's books. I have just started to re-read the very first book (Countdown to Armageddon) and will end up re-reading the entire series.
This series is not about action from start to finish, but is a series that I have come to look forward to reading (just like I am looking forward to book 3 of the Alone series), there is just something about the characters that has me rooting for them. I will admit that I do enjoy a good book that has some serious action in it, I also enjoy a book that makes me think and also one that gives out useful information or information that makes me stop and look it up to see how I might incorporate that information into my own life or not.
Once again Mr. Maloney has managed to write another book that has me still rooting for Scott, his family, friends and co-workers. Part of me can not wait to see where things lead and yet part of me knows that eventually all good things come to an end.
I have loved this series until this particular book and wish I could have been an editor to catch this inconsistencies.
Some surprising twists, and suspense of the future.
This writer is very good, and intriguing, in his story development of the characters and Story line. I have read thru the book and series twice now and still find the suspense a calling card to read more of.
Write fast, Darrell!

I think if the author had kept to a single book - and had a good editor - the book would have been worth recommending to lovers of dystopian fiction. But instead he went for what I'm assuming is the more profitable, but far less worthwhile, serial option. After books one and two, it began to feel as if, having found a formula, he was just phoning it in. If I were his editor, I'd have probably got through an entire box of red pencils by the time I got to Book 5. There really isn't any excuse for such tired writing, if you have a good story to share - and to be fair, he does.
It's such a pity - because this series could so easily have played to its strengths: with his considerable knowledge of farming, weaponry and building. And there is also some good advice to young people - about cooperation and loyalty working better than aggression and greed. Goodness knows, this advice is sorely needed in a world where almost every computer game turns on mindless violence. What we didn't need was one more rambling, lazy, episodic piece of dystopian fiction.
Still a great series
