Anarchy Rising is the second book in the post-apocalypse Survivalist series by Dr. Arthur Bradley. (Series Order: Frontier Justice, Anarchy Rising, Judgment Day, Madness Rules, Battle Lines, and Finest Hour).
After the worst pandemic in mankind's history, anarchy threatens to break apart the United States. The government is years away from providing even the most basic necessities.

Big cities have been overrun with deformed survivors of the Superpox-99 pandemic. Smaller towns are being overtaken by authoritarians and lawless thugs. And congested interstates have become thoroughfares for desperate travelers and bandits seeking to capture women and supplies.
President Glass must face daunting challenges, completely unaware that some of her closest advisors are using unthinkable methods to have her removed. Their clandestine hunt for her eleven-year-old daughter, Samantha, intensifies, and the only person standing in their way is a ruthless convict who will stop at nothing keep the young girl safe.
Duty drives Deputy Marshal Mason Raines to leave the small town of Boone to discover the fate of his fellow lawmen. With his faithful wolfhound, Bowie, at his side, he crosses paths with desperate refugees, a bloodthirsty hangman, and savage cannibals. Only as he discovers the horrific truth, does he realize that he may be the last of his kind.

I was nervous about going into this series because of some of the other reviews I read. Well, I'm glad I made the purchases, this has become one of my favorites.
Pick's up where book 1 left off. Better then book 1 and book 1 was very good. The Dog is my favorite character. The story illustrates the nobility and loyalty of all K-9 everywhere!! Reminds me of Tufo's Henry!
What's more to say.....the story, the narrator, the characters and everything in between was good! I can't wait till I listen to the next one!
The 3 main characters are great. President Glass however is a disappointment and for the most part unbelievable. She lacks the intelligence you would expect from a president of the United States. That aside I will continue to look forward to seeing what happens to Tanner, Samantha and Mason.
The audio version is a joy to listen to while driving, exercising, and working on hobbies
Tough call, as I like Marshall Raines and his dad, Tanner Raines. As a veterinarian I also love the part played by Bowie!
Very near the end when Marshall Raines arrives at the marshall central facility and makes a promise
I am looking forward to book three, Judgement Day, and book four, Madness Rules and five, Batlle Lines.
I was too quick to judge this book when the president's character was portrayed as a weak intimidated woman. I continued on with the book and found it to be very entertaining, well written with some very charming dialogue.
Say something about yourself!
Yes it was action packed and the relationships between the characters were well developed. That is important to me when I listen to a story.
I like the fact that it is not too many thinks on. Just 3 stories going on simultaneously. But they are all related. I hate it when theirs so many characters to keep up with.
The banter between Tanner and Samantha kept me laughing.
I am soooo glad I decided to give this series a chance. I have looked over it several times because I don't really like military based books. But The Survivalist is not what I thought
Great story and narration. I would recommend this series to everyone who likes survivalist novels. I look forward to the rest of the series.
I love the premise and thought the first book was great, but the change in narrators take a lot out of the story. Performance is flat and made it unlistenable to me. I'll have to finish this series on my Kindle.
