Publisher's Summary

As the district manager for a sporting goods store, Nelson knows what it takes to survive off the grid. Michelle is a nurse, a mom, and fully capable. Nelson and Michelle are hardworking Americans with a secret: they are part of a circle of individuals who are prepared for the worst. They know that the worst is coming; it's just a matter of time.
When the stock markets in Asia crash, the family knows that it is time to pull together with their circle of friends and get to their safe zone. But nothing worth doing is ever easy. Not content to just seize the assets of Americans, the United States government paints a target on the backs of survivalists and preppers, demanding that all Americans turn in their guns, ammunition, and food, and placing restrictions on travel.
With the family in the cross-hairs, will they make it safely to their farm? Or will they fall victim to the machinations of a government who no longer believes in the Land of the Free?

Rich folk strike again

This is another book well written but of the same theme as so many others...
People with essentially unlimited resources prepare for the event that brings the nation as we know it to an end. They move as a group to the country where the have built a cabin for each family, they just happen to have an
excavator with a large bucket which cost used over $50,000. The primary participant is a manager of what must be a huge sporting goods store, auto parts and home improvement store rolled into one. From this he is able to "secure" over 600 military grade weapons and ammunition to support an infantry company in extended combat engagement. There are also several class III weapons to be secured. Etc. I would like to read of the family that is retired with few weapons, limited ammo and less than 100 pounds of gold. Perhaps 4 oz or less. In other words make it more realistic for the average American, not the economically elite.

violence towards others

these characters attitudes towards others in their group and family for that matter and their willingness to kill and torture in some very gruesome ways that no one with any humanity in them would ever do, this is part of the book that I am disappointed in, also their language is terrible where one minute they're cursing in Our Lords name then saying grace before a meal the author really missed it on this point. I for one would never be in a prepper group like this, I'd rather take my chances being alone.

Did not enjoy

Had to force myself to continue reading thinking it would get better. The writer obviously has a good knowledge of weapons and seemed overly keen to demonstrate that. I felt like I was involved in a stocktake of the inventory of a gun shop. I really don't want to know every detail of all the guns used and just wanted the story to move on.I don't feel as though I have to go straight onto the next novel and keep reading. Perhaps fans of Star Wars might find it interesting.
