Review/Post Reading Time: 4 minutes

Brian’s Overall Avenging Home Book Rating

Avenging Home is a nice inclusion to the book series and I really enjoyed it. We finally get to see one thorn slapped away. Without that fact, I’d have lowered the star rating to four just for dragging it out. I’m giving this book 4½ Stars.

Get this book on Audible. If you’re not an Audible fan, get it on Kindle or paperback. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you love post-apocalyptic and dystopian books.

Series Recap

Morgan is Sheriff. The National Gaurd is just a short drive away.

Tyler and Brandi’s kids got sick playing with some infected kids passing through.

Cecil was introduced in book 6 and continues to play a key role in the community’s slow progress back from the dark and dangerous landscape everyone’s fallen prey to after the EMP attack.

The DHS prisoners from the camp never made it to Frostproof and have organized near the community.

Avenging Home (The Survivalist Book Book #7) Book Intro

We start Avenging Home with Tayler getting caught up in the market explosion from book six. She survived and needs some healing time.

The DHS is close by and needs to be dealt with as a bigger threat is looming in the horizon. Listening to the shortwave radio, Morgan learns some scary national news that makes the DHS and Billy’s boys seem like child’s play.

Jeff is dead. Tyler and Brandi are quarantined with their children having been infected with Tuberculosis (TB) and getting worse.

The “coupling” up is continuing. Sarge and Ms Kay are getting close. Thad and Mary are enjoying a lot of time together. Jamie and Perez seem to be getting pretty close. Oh, I almost forgot Fred and Eric.

A community garden is in the works and there might be hope for a little neigborhood electric. Will they make it that far?

Are things getting better or worse for Morgan and his band of survivors?

Mature Subject Matter:

Violence: Yep. A lot of it.
Profanity: Yep.
Sex: Nope.
Alcohol/drugs: A little drinking.

Reader/Listener Roll Your Eyes Moments

Without spoiling the book for you, one of the last scenes in Avenging Home had to do with a little group festivity and I found myself thinking, “Okay, enough already. Let’s move on please“. It wasn’t only too “touchy-feely” but seemed to go on too long. Other than that, I didn’t experience much eye-rolling.

Avenging Home Author: A. American

About A. American

Angery American

A. American is short for Angery American, which I’m sure is a pseudonym. Especially since his real name is Chris Weatherman.

He's an electrician by trade and has authored ten books for the Going Home series, sixteen published books in all. He lives in Florida by the Ocala National Forest. Sounds familiar.

A. American has been prepping for a couple of decades and speaks fluent survival talk. That can mean only one thing. He’s one of us – a gear nut. What? You’re not? Anyway, that explains much of the books seemingly “how to” and “what to carry” lessons scattered throughout the book.

Chris (A. American) actually has a teenage daughter nicknamed 'Little Bit'. Pretty cool, right?

Audible Narration By Duke Fontaine

About Duke Fontaine

Duke Fontaine

Duke Fontaine seems to work exclusively with A. American and he is fantastic at bringing the character's personalities and uniqueness alive. Duke Fontaine knows the story and the individual personalities and makes the story better for it. You're not sitting back thinking, "Wait, was that Thad or Sarge?". Duke knows his stuff.

Get this book on Audible. If you’re not an Audible fan, get it on Kindle or paperback. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
