Product Description

Product Description

The post-apocalyptic world isn’t that bad. Sure, there are mutants. But, for the people of New Hope, daily life isn’t so much a struggle of finding food or medicine as it is trying to find a new shortstop for their kickball team.

This makes it difficult for a post-apocalyptic warrior to find work.

Thankfully, an army full of killers is making its way to the peaceful town and plans to raze it to the ground. Only a fully trained post-apocalyptic-nomadic warrior can stop them.

Two have offered their services. One is invited to help. The other is sent to roam the wasteland. Did the townspeople make the right decision? Will they be saved? Did they find a shortstop? What’s with all the bears?

Find out in the best-selling Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors, a fast-paced action and adventure novel set in a horrific future that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & action-packed 12 Mar 2013
By SK
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book after seeing the author on Twitter. I read Tortugas Rising first for free and enjoyed it so then bought this book. The story was well thought out and inventive. Overall: fun, action-packed, easy to read and a page-turner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining filler 4 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is well written. It takes a fairly tongue-in-cheek subject/storyline/characterisation but the writing style is very comfortable. I can imagine this being made into a film, maybe with Ben Stiller in the lead role. If you read a lot it's a really good filler between heavier subject matter. If you don't read much, it will probably be just the kind of thing to get you going and keep you interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mad Max meets The Naked Gun 2 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this twice. The first time on Kindle when I didn't know how to use it, the second time when it finally came out in paperback.

I bought it on a whim, and I was very surprised.

Almost every page brings a new laugh, and each and every character is well rounded and brought to life in these pages.

Post apocalypse spoof.

10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars If Douglas Adams wrote the Road Warrior, or something like that. 16 May 2011
By noiseradio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors is a terrific, fun book. If you're a fan of comic fiction, you need this. If you enjoy action and humor in equal measures, you will like it a lot. If beaurocrats seem more dangerous to you than super-smart bears, you will find much to appreciate here (and you are not Stephen Colbert). If you like to laugh(especially at the apocalypse), I can't think of another book that has made me laugh out loud so many times recently. I literally had to stop reading halfway through chapter 4 one night because may laughter kept waking up my wife.

Get it. You'll love it. Especially if you like things like Road Warrior, Evil Dead Trilogy, Hitchhiker's Guide, Good Omens, and other works of that nature. Ben Wallace is my new favorite comic fiction writer. I think he'll be yours, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars a five-star romp 28 Aug 2011
By J. Gunnar Grey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did you ever see Men in Black or better yet Men in Black II? Of course you did. Well, that tells you pretty much what to expect from Benjamin Wallace's debut novel. Just picture Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in a post-apocalyptic nightmare world, except they're not on the same side this time, and get ready to stay up all night laughing.

**spoiler alert**

It's seven years after the apocalypse. Plants, animals, and humans have mutated. Cities are a shambles and what still lives in one is nothing you want to meet. The survivors have hunkered down in walled villages, and post-apocalyptic nomadic warriors travel the roads in Mustangs and motor homes, offering their services to the leery inhabitants.

Some of these warriors are better than others. Some are trustworthy. Others aren't. The village of New Hope has two such warriors to choose between, and when the town bureaucrats make the wrong choice, the only man who can save the villagers is the somewhat bumbling alternative, the one they just threw out on his butt. Jerry and his drooling mastiff sidekick, Chewy, must protect the town, defeat an evil army intent on appropriating slaves and supplies, and rescue the captives seized from other, already destroyed villages.

Some reviewers describe Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior as a comic book without the drawings, and that's reasonably apt. Another good term for it is comedic thriller. Wallace didn't stint on tension, and the second half of the novel is page-turning action with cliffhanger endings for each chapter, interspersed with groaners and solid laughs. This reviewer read for three hours straight, because there was no place to stop.

Almost every novel published as an ebook contains errors, either in formatting or the usual grammatical and word choice stuff (they're/their, it's/its). Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warrior is well formatted, but it would have benefited from the attention of a good line editor. While the errors made this reviewer pause occasionally, they didn't interfere sufficiently with the reading process to dampen the appreciation:

(while driving in a motor home trying to outrun bad guys on motorcycles) "Brake!"

[Erica] stomped on the brake. The coach lurched forward on its frame. . . . There was a thud from behind the coach. A rider shot past them on the right.

"Now, go!"

She mashed the gas. "What was that switch?"

"It turns off the brake lights."

Five stars for a romping good read, line edited or not.

A recipe for: Post-Apocalyptic Nomadic Warriors

Mix:

One part Shaun of the Dead
One part Monty Python humor
One part Fallout 3

Oh never mind, there's no recipe for it. You simply can't make this stuff up at home--unless you're Benjamin Wallace. Wallace has written the ultimate popcorn munching summer read. Buy it.

This book provides an alternative to all the doom and gloom apocalyptic novels out there. It was refreshing to read something different in the genre! Thanks Mr Wallace, I couldn't put it down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, well written and enjoyable. 15 May 2012
By Vandweller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this one. It was funny, serious, full of action, full of mystery and just plain fun. I read it over two nights. I could really relate to the main character, and the towns folk of new hope. Best of all, I loved `The Silver Lining'. I mean, let's face it, post apocalypse, what is the best ride to get around in? A motor home of course!

This story features two heroes, somewhat opposite in nature, offering their services as Post Apocalypse Nomadic Warriors to the small town of New Hope. One gets rejected straight away. The other, is taken in to defend the town against a horde of attackers riding in a huge big rig.

There is some interesting fun to be had along the way, including super smart bears that are not what they seem. Good character development and location description as well.

This book really reminded me a lot of Mad Max. I can totally see this one being made into a movie. A funny, movie, with corny scenes, but a fine movie all the same. This book also reminded me of Hard Roads by Terry McDonald. Both being similar in material, but McDonald's book being more serious than this one.

If you enjoyed Mad Max 2, The Road or many other post apocalypse movies, you should like this book. Not a zombie book by the way.
