the female characters were barely believable and with very few exceptions, stereotypical.
the lead female character, five or six days into a grid down collapse, the first time she is left alone and expected to guard the groups stuff, decides instead that she needs to take a bath, leaving everything, including the groups only firearm, to go wandering off looking for a "quiet spot" to take her bath.
you would think that most people a week into a grid down collapse would have already had their "reality check" and think before doing something so stupid.
she did have her moment, unfortunately, thru her own stupidity, she put herself into that situation.
the sailboat story, i skipped it after the second or third installment.
the ending, what can i say about it other than, seriously?
They are Book 1 and Book 2 in a continuing series.
I read more than 100 books a year and have done so for a long time, hence, I feel I know good writing when I see it.
These books have what you want in the post apocalyptic genre .. the SHTF world of writing.
They have great characters that the reader can identify with. Something in the characters for everyone .. strong and hunky male characters with values and morals, strong and attractive female characters, the normal array of loser bad guys, and a wonderful Rastafarian character named Scully .. my personal favorite.
There is also plenty of good solid action so things never get dull.
But the element that I find very special and somewhat unique for this genre, is, the whole nautical element. One could say that the “boat” is in and of itself, also a “character”.
The whole escape to the open ocean and from there to faraway places of safety, tugs at the core of so many of us who care for our families and friends and who want to live a free and safe life.
But first .. before heading out to the open sea to start such a new life, a long voyage by two brothers across the Gulf of Mexico to a ravaged, blacked out, lawless city of New Orleans to rescue two young women, one the daughter of one of the brothers and, of course, the niece of the other, aided mightily by Scully and his Rasta outlook on life and the world.
Also, the tension and action packed escape from New Orleans of the two young women and their mutual male friend .. away towards a hoped for safe place far out in the country, soon after the lights go out from a CME.
Lots of plot twists and turns and unexpected developments .. harrowing escapes .. characters making dumb decisions you the reader can see coming as a bad idea and then, the struggle to get thru them.
Great stuff .. really fun to read .. very enjoyable. You’ll thank me later for steering you towards these two books and then the rest yet to come.
Mr. Williams has written other works, both fiction and non-fiction. I also enjoyed “The Darkness After”, of the same genre as these two great books. Check that one out as well.
