The Disruption Trilogy is a MUST HAVE series for any Post-Apocalyptic library. Unlike many books in this genre, there are no zombies, no Mad Max like cults, nor fantastical situations. What these books provide is the age-old struggle between good and evil brought to head by a believable collapse to our otherwise orderly society. We all agree that desperate times make desperate people, and I think Bob McDermott endeavors to manifest these outcomes as realistic as possible. Bob also likes American Heroes, and he creates some awesome ones throughout the three books. None are superman; rather they are men and women who do not let their desperation corrupt their values. They are smart people who use their wits and down-to-earth skills to overcome difficult situations, and that is where the entertainment lies throughout his stories.
By writing these three books, Bob McDermott has become the Tom Clancy of the Post-Apocalyptic genre. His knowledge of the military, merchant marine, outdoorsman skills, weapons, and small unit tactics is superb. If you think about it, these are definitely the skills needed in the early days of a societal collapse. Whether it be converting a shipping container port into a fort or the understanding that every river bridge has the potential to be a deadly trap, Bob get’s it right, and that’s the strength behind the Disruption Trilogy.
Promises to Keep is well named as it succeeds in delivering the promise of the entire Disruption Trilogy. I understand that Kevin Pierce also overcame some Hurricane Irma obstacles of his own to get the narration completed so those of us on Audible could get the books shortly after its release. Kevin’s narration style totally complements Bob’s writing style, which makes these books so enjoyable to listen to. Because these are the most realistic Post-Apocalyptic accounts I’ve read to date, and they contain non-stop action by authentic characters, it’s easy for me to give Promises and the overall Disruption Trilogy a 5 star rating.

Great job bringing an expansive story to a believable and satisfying conclusion. Three more words.

After having enjoyed to previous two episodes immensely I felt that this episode got stuck in a battle scene, The preparation of the protagonists, the setting the scene, the back and forth of one battle seemed to go on for hours.
