I love this book and the entire series! This is the third book and I am really enjoying the fascinating story that Larry has crafted. He has such depth of character for all of the people in Peaceful Valley and beyond. I feel like I really understand and identify with so many of the residents. Larry has a great balance of dialog, action, and narration, the story moves along so nicely with just the right amount of detail. You can read this story by itself, of course, but the reading will be ever so much richer if you read them in sequence. You are in for a treat either way! Into Winter: The Armed Invasion gets 5 STARS! Thank you, Larry, for so much pure reading pleasure!
