Marines, Magic and devastation. Survivors come together with a strong sense of Patriotism and Community. One man's vision for a new America (and a SECRET that he must guard at all costs) and the people who are willing to die to make sure that it happens. The characters are both well developed and likable, though some aren't. Likable that is. Some survivors will become heroes, some will be villains in this new world as they were in the old, but much worse and some will discover a strength in themselves that they never new they had.
Book three ended right when a major battle for survival was nearing. The 1st chapter of book 4 has made me impatient for what will happen next.
I give it 4 stars because I really loved the way it not only drew my attention but kept it (I read late into the night). I literally couldn't put the Kindle down! It would have been 5 stars, but for the typos, weird sentence structures and odd punctuations. It was a little annoying.
There area couple of things that set this book apart from a lot of other post apocalyptic stories. The first is the mystery hidden behind everything. Several points in the book hint that characters have some important secrets hidden away and that sets a bit of a hook to get the interest of the reader early. The other thing is the presence of magic. Generally it is not an extremely powerful aspect to a person, but there are a few people who seem to have some subtle abilities and one woman who has a much higher capability with it.
Having some many characters play important roles at times seems to dilute the story a bit as it leads to a lot of scene jumping, but I believe as the series progresses these characters will be together leading to a smoother flow. I will also say that there were several characters I didn't like and even the people deemed "good" guys are survivalists. There really is not a black and white to morality the "good" guys do some fairly reprehensible things in order for their group to survive. To me that aspect lends a bit of a boost to the story, it's great for morality to be black and white in a book, but with only the bare minimum of society left that doesn't seem reasonable.
One other thing I will address is the editing. I received a first edition from the author and read and half of it.Read more ›
I read the first 100 or so pages of this and had to give up.
I really wanted to like this book. I really did.
BUT having the USA end on the Mayan calendar end date was the first clue this book was going to go off track. then references to a cabal of 2000 year old Conspiracy whose members are going to bring down civilization for no apparent reason. Come on, give me a break!!
Then we have the US military obeying illegal orders to murder our citizens (ain't gonna happen). No member of the US Marine Corps or the Army is going to issue or follow those illegal orders. They are in violation of so many concepts that beat into them from boot camp on. Things like Duty Honor country.
And then there are unarmed civilians overrunning highly trained and armed military organizations and killing every armed Marine in a base but one and a kid? BTW What are Marines doing in the middle of New Mexico anyway?
Then we get witches with magic powers? Next armed bandits that are disorganized and over-running the armed civilians that just took out the US Marines and supposed have the arms they took from the Marines?
And to top it off, in less than a month all the men in sight have turned into sadistic murdering rapists and worse. As a man (and former Marine) I find that to be very offensive.
We won't even get into Marine rank structure. Ok I will. A Lance Corporal is the 3rd lowest rank in the Corps. Every enlisted person goes through that rank within 2 years or so of enlisting. No lifer would have that rank for long, yet we have a guy that has been in the Corps for 10 years or more with the rank of E-3. Give me a break.
This could have been a good book and a good series, but failed horribly.
