The main character is a seasoned military veteran and law enforcement officer who teaches pistol combat to other law enforcement officers for a living. He is perpetually calm under fire (after taking a few breaths). He is supremely confident in his abilities as a quick draw artist. He faces down the bad guys with a steely eye and never flinches. In this respect he is a bit like Superman. You get the idea early on that there is no chance this guy can lose against his vicious but less well-trained and often somewhat hapless opponents. That's where the tension drains out of the story.
If you are looking for a fantasy about being the toughest hombre alive, so tough that no-one can really hurt you, and so confident that you will never feel insecure in front of an absolutely gorgeous member of the opposite sex, then this book might hold promise for you. Despite the trappings of being a good guy, I could not shake the sense that if I met this man I would admire him for a few minutes before realizing he was a superficially charming, shallow narcissist with a wide streak of sociopathy and end up disliking him intensely. Of the two main plotlines I liked the cross country road-trip undertaken by the main character's father better. The father is a flawed, rough-edged man who is much more interesting than the main character. Because he is not the over-idealized main character a reader can see there is a chance the author might kill him off, which breathes some tension into that storyline at least.
Bottom line: this was a mediocre post-apocalyptic novel. If you want a vehicle for learning a few things about surviving the s**t hitting the fan, without reading a book actually about prepping, this might be worth your while. Not good.
If you like John Wayne, but with less emotion and more facts, physical conflict with clear black and white characters, then this novel and series might be for you. This is definitely a modernized wild west good guy novel.
People do not realize just how realistic these stories are nutil you start to think about the possibility, even if slim, of the events in the book, unfolding. It is not as far fetched as most think, and actually more real than many want to think. Being a closet "prepper" myself, I like to see how well the author researches and uses the equipment and techniques and how they explain them. Dr. Bradley dos a great job or writing a convinceable, realistic book about what may happen if the world we live in now is disrupted by some kind of natural or man-made disaster.
The characters are very well laid out and described. The backgrounds that are given make you feel you understand them pretty well and their motivations as to why they do certain things. The relationships are well developed and especially fun to watch and listen to the banter between Tanner and Sam. What a pair they are! And the protagonist is one that people can get behind. The good guy US Marshal is someone you grow to cheer for.
So if you are looking for a great read where you may actually learn a thing or two, and enjoy a great story, character development, and plots that twist and turn a bit, then these books are for you! Book 1, this book lays out the whole premise for the series and does a very convincing job of it. Best of all, if you didn't know about this type of scenario before the book, you will be wanting to read more about it after reading this book, and maybe even becoming a little more proficient in your own survival skills.
I highly recommend this book.
I think what struck me most of all about this book is it is something tangible most people can wrap their heads around - a worldwide pandemic and the sense of fear, panic, and the ensuing struggle as people try to survive. There aren't a lot of whistles and bells to this novel, but the author really makes you feel like you are there in the middle of the action. I had a hard time putting this one down, and I continue to think about it well after finishing it.
I picked this one up for just 99 cents for the Kindle version and received a lot more than that for entertainment value. I’ve gone and purchased the next book of the series, and will see where the author’s imagination takes us next.
