The Survivalist Series starts out with one man, Morgan Carter forced to walk home after an EMP strike. His walk of 250 miles takes his through a series of challenges and he meets a few new friends along the way. The series wraps around the community Morgan built, including his family, friends, soldiers and even outsiders. The DHS is cast as an evil entity in the story and much of the fighting is between Morgan and the DHS and The military against DHS. There are raiders in cahoots with the DHS as well as many desperate and hungry people willing to kill for a meal.
In Avenging Home, Morgan and his group have a lot of work ahead of them just to assist everyone in staying alive and now the DHS is a problem again. Not only that but a local band of misfits are still muddying the waters and have to be taken out soon. As if this weren't enough for everyone to come to terms with and risk everything in the fight of their lives, Morgan learns it will be child's play compared to what is looming over the entire country. How on Earth will they carry on and will any of them ever see peace again?
Resurrecting Home takes us into the halfway point of The Survivalist Series. Book five of a ten book series, A. American understood the dangers of the story losing traction and becoming stale. It seems he took great care in keeping the story moving at an interesting pace while staying true to relationships built and introducing new people and challenges into the mix.
Forsaking Home is book number four of The survivalist Series. The EMP attack has the County in a vulnerable spot and the DHS is fully taking advantage of that. They may have had a hand in the attack. They are now the enemy. Just when you think the government can't get any worse, they go and stick Jess in a cold dark cell. Morgan has his hand's full at their new home after they had to bugout. Sarge, with the support of what's left of the military, is ready to show the DHS that there are still people ready, willing and capable of fighting back.
In Escaping Home, Morgan survives a 250-mile walk home in book one only to bug-out in book three. That sits just fine for me because there's action in movement. Escaping Home is loaded with action both good and bad. Morgan, with the help of Thad, Danny and even Sarge, begin moving things to their new home. Jess is stuck in the FEMA camp, basically as a prisoner. She makes a few friends in the camp but is having a tough time conforming and making some powerful enemies.
