The war rages on as the survivors in Safe Haven keep trying to outrun Cesar and his band of Mexican slavers. The camp struggles to accept a woman in a position of power, even though she's more than capable of handling herself in a fight and has proven that she's a better soldier than most of the men numerous times. Meanwhile, Marc has a hard time accepting that Angela wants to have a career in the army, and not be his baby making love toy. There's a common theme in the book where the women are pushed to the fringes of society to be the babysitters and kitchen staff while the men are the only ones to make decisions.
But the teenage lust running through the survivors of "Safe Haven" is the worst thing ever for me in this kind of story. I get that the world needs to repopulate, but having women being "claimed" by the first guy that looks at her for being a "mate" just seems outdated and backward when trying to move forward in a world that's been destroyed like it has.
I'd like to read more of the series, to see how they end up on the island that was talked about in start of the first book, and to see if they make it somewhere safe to wait out the first winter. But I think the lust is going to get in my way and I might have to walk away from it.
What I particularly liked about this book was the development of the strong female lead character. So often in life after apocalypse stories it's male characters that dominate. Here there was consideration of how this 'new world' was an opportunity for women to reshape their role in society & challenge the stereotypical view that they were the ones to be protected, rather than the protectors. This made a refreshing change & by the end I wanted to sign up to be one of Adrian's Eagles lol
