John O'Brien is a former Air Force fighter instructor pilot who transitioned to Special Operations for the latter part of his career gathering his campaign ribbon for Desert Storm. Immediately following his military service, John became a firefighter/EMT with a local department. Along with becoming a firefighter, he fell into the Information Technology industry starting two large casinos in Washington as the Information Technology Manager and becoming the Network Manager for the Washington State Legislature, the Northwest Information Technology Manager for the Federal Aviation Administration, and the Network Systems Manager for Hollywood Video. Currently, John is writing full-time on the series, A New World.

As a former marathon runner, John lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and can now be found kayaking out in the waters of Puget Sound, mountain biking in the Capital Forest, hiking in the Olympic Peninsula, or pedaling his road bike along the many scenic roads.

First of all I kinda enjoyed the book, what little of it there was, but i had to deduct a couple of stars from this one for a few things. I think that the series has been gripping and extremely fun to read. This book however felt like a "money" book to me and what I mean by that is it seemed like filler with no content. Like he forcefully put words on paper. The plot moved forward at a snails pace and for a very short book, never good. He also started doing something that is just a personal pet pieve of mine and that is telling the same story from multiple angles of different people. Kinda works in the movies, not so much here, Its literally the same story just through someone elses eyes. Then you ad in "over describing" like 10 pages of a zombie crawling across the ground, or 7-8 pages of what a character is thinking in one moment, which is fine and well, but when you read that and realize "wow that was 10%" of the book on that single event. Then the whole book seemed anti-climatic from the cliff hanger that was left from the last one, but of course you have to leave this one on a cliff hanger, and that felt rushed and honestly, not very well thought out (pretty much the complete opposite this entire series has been). All that being said, I'll probably buy the next book, because the series as whole has been great, but if it is more of the same as this one, im done.

John, we have talked numerous occasions via e-mail regarding your books, and the release of Dissension, and as you know I have reviewed nearly every book in the series, so allow me to review the newest addition.

*****THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS, I WILL ANNOUNCE BEFORE DISCUSSING*****

Overall, I enjoyed Dissension. I waited for a long time for it to be released, e-mailing the author several times for updates. I was ecstatic to see, on Christmas Eve, that it was on Kindle. I had been checking nearly daily for a couple months, but for some reason the newest book didn't actually appear in the search results for over a week.

While Dissension was definitely a good read, I feel that it was not nearly as good as the previous books. There were bits which seemed over the top, bits that seemed rushed and not thought out, and overall I felt like the book was shorter than the previous books. While I would have rated every previous book between 4 and 5 stars, I can only give this one a 3, for the reasons below.

My first complaint with this is the direction of the story. I felt as if the author was trying to include too many story lines in one book, which prevented any real development on any of them.

I am not entirely sure how I feel about the advancements in the nightrunners abilities (i.e: talking), but I am willing to wait it out and see where it goes, I may like the end result.

Sandra is an odd situation. For some reason, she is drawn to Jack and wants him, while wanting to remove Lynn from the picture.

I love this series, but the latest installment was a disappointment. The story is told from multiple points of view, which means the same event is told over and over again. Not only does this not advance the story, but it is not very interesting. Parts of the book felt like they were added just to add to the word count. It felt disjointed. I cannot give other criticism as it would spoil it for readers of the series. If you are a reader of the series, read it anyway as you will want to
know what happens to Jack and the gang, just know that it is not nearly as good as others in the series.

As usual this was a great book and the adventure is still going strong and keeps me reading and waiting for more. This series was the series that really got me into this genre, and years after reading his first book in the series, I am still hooked and can't wait to see what is next!

Just when I thought the night runners couldn't get more creepy. Shivers. These books have everything. Now we even have creepy and totally cool powers that are totally believable. I am so excited to read the next book!! Your time and money is well spent on these books.

As fan of the survivalist, post-apocalyptic world genre this book got me hook, line and sinker!

This is an exciting adventure with true emotions and realistic abilities. This book is action packed while giving you an in depth view to this new world, trust me, it will leave you dying for the next book! Once you get into Jack Walker's world, you don't want to leave!

The story is based in a post-apocalyptic Pacific Northwest. The enemy is now fellow Americans who are no longer completely human. A flu epidemic with casualties out of control,similar to the black plague but worse, only this time a vaccine is developed on the fly to combat the virus, it is quickly distributed to the population after being fast tracked through the FDA. Turns out... although the vaccine does keep some odd 30% alive it changes their DNA and they become...Night Runners. At the end of first wave of death due to the flu and subsequent vaccines, as society collapses and millions die, a mere 1% of humans survive.

The group of survivors this book follows is led by Jack Walker, former Captain in the Air Force and father of three. Initially I was hesitate about the children but they became one of my favorite parts of the story as this is the first book that I have read that followed the adaptation of different aged kids to this new world. Jack is a complex man who is both loving father, gentle lover, respected leader and skilled killer. He has many tools in his arsenal from past experience when he was in the military.

You follow Jack and his children through day to day life in this new world.
