Synopsis (from the Author): After taking revenge on a drug lord and his crew for murdering his sister, John Hunter is a wanted man. It’s 2030 and in the aftermath of the great plague, John makes his way to Haven, craving sanctuary and peace but instead runs into a rogue religious group who wants to play God even as they run rife with corruption. But they haven’t counted on meeting big bad John who’s meaner than they could ever be. And just when they think they’ve put him out of their misery, he’s resurrected from his hospital bed and hell hath no fury like a hunter scorned…who’s become a devil with a cause!
What I liked: If you are looking for gritty action, then this is a book for you. John Hunter, decorated war hero turned police officer, becomes a fugitive when he wipes out the gang responsible for his sister’s murder. He flees to Canada to start fresh in a world devastated by disease. That dystopian feel along with the enigmatic Hunter makes for a terrific read. Great characters on both the good and evil side kept the book moving along at a terrific pace. Add in the religious zealots who want to remake the world in their image, and you have all the makings of a great novel!
What I didn’t like: About the only thing I didn’t like was the sex scene was a bit graphic for me. I like my imagination to do some of the work in those situations, but there wasn’t much left for my mind to do. Other than that, what’s not to like?
Overall impression: Well-written, great pace, and great characters. I would recommend it for anyone (over 18) who enjoys a gritty look at a bleak future with just a little bit of hope thrown in for good measure! Well done, Linda Thackeray!
My rating: 4.5 Stars (rounded to 5)
He comes home to join the police force, still protecting those who needed it. He couldn't be bought, and when the gang lord killed his little sister as an act of retribution, Hunter let the rule of law fall away, and rampaged wielding the sword of revenge.
And then the plague decimated the world, leaving little to run from and nowhere to run to, Hunter roamed the highways. Until he heard of a place called Haven.
This story begins with Hunter's attack on the drug lord. I was immediately drawn in. If you like your heroes hard, gritty, and realistic this is a book for your TBR shelf. The action never stops, and while the story gets dark, you never have the feeling that what you're reading was written for shock value. This author either knows a veteran or is one - I have a hard time thinking this amount of realism: in details, hardware, and emotion, was written from searching the internet.
