Morgan has managed to get through a lot. Having made it back to his family and dealt with the issues of unscrupulous neighbors, he then had to deal with the presence of the federal government and their nefarious activities. But with the help of his close-knit group he prevailed. Life is settling into a familiar routine. And with the help of the US Army, they are starting to rebuild their community. But just when Morgan thinks things are assuming some kind of normal, another surprise lands in his lap. He's made sheriff.
Harkening back to a time when law enforcement was a local face in the community, Morgan is forced to step up and be that face, much to his chagrin. With the help of Thad, Danny, and the rest of the crew, he accepts the challenge and tries to make a positive impact. But he's in for yet another surprise. New foes will arise, and old ones will return to conspire to destroy his efforts.
Morgan's group will suffer loss, injury, and constant assault. His new position has made him a target as well as those he loves. The peace and tranquility that the group has fought so hard for will continue to elude them. The fight, as Morgan soon learns, is just beginning.

Yes. Funny, exciting, great characters.......
The Explosion at the market
Yes. Slower this time around.
Listened to all the Survivalist series books as well as hundreds of other apocalyptic novels. The Survivalist series stands alone at the top of my Favorites. My opinion, this is the best series in the genre, all others as well. Hope A. American keeps them coming, with Duke Fontaine as the narrator.
I listened to the other five, three or four times. I see no need to change here. They just get better and better. Why? Because I like the story.
Although different in many ways, there are similar components in "One Year After" by William Forstchen, both stories flow nicely.
Continuity. I have some audio books that are series with different readers and that kind of changes the overall flavor. I have some where the reader has is good sometimes and lazy at others, which become annoying. There isn't much I'd change with Fontaine, save maybe a few less "he said" "she saids". All in all, he's very good.
The future ends, only for those who give up. or maybe just, never say die.
I've gotten several books on this same vane, only a few kept my attention and got me to buy the next one. I pray we don't have long to wait for book 7.
Someone who enjoys books that "tell" instead of "show."
No. Just this series.
The series started well; exciting, lots of action and tension - although with the usual listing of apocalypse-approved equipment common in the genre. But starting with book 5, the series has bogged down into tedium. Hours spent in endless description and conversation and repetition. Find some ice for a drink of water? Be prepared to hear every character exclaim how good ice water is on a hot day and with every vocal and visual emotion told to you with "he said", "he exclaimed," "she shouted." What to know how to build a water tank and associated water aqueduct? You'll know EXACTLY how to do it with every step told to you in exact detail. I could overlook the amateurishness of the writing if SOMETHING were happening but the last two books (5 and 6) in the series have been bores. Book 5 was a fire(with EVERY character asking "will we have to move?" and the EXACT same response from the protagonist) and book 6 teases you with a new group of baddies and a resurgent DHS, but only 4 minor action sequences spread out over the book's endless "telling." Do yourself a favor and stop after book 4.
If you can get past the juvenile dialogue, and what sounds to be reading from a stuttering teleprompter, the storyline is actually decent. The dialogue sounds as though it was written by someone whose only exposure to the English language was 1970's public service announcements and after school specials television, while the performance sounds like someone's leaky typewriter spilled commas randomly throughout the text. About every 3 words Duke Fontaine pauses and then seems surprised there's more to be said. Think if Captain...James...T...Kirk and IBM'S Watson had a love child that went on to be a narrator.
I just can't stop listening to these books, mostly because I've already invested so much in the story I feel like I can't quit now until I know how these people, who are clearly victims of the invasion of the body snatchers, fare in the end.
Was a little tough to get through. Story line was lame and predictable. The only reason I bought this one was that I have listened to the series to date. Probably won't get the next one as I have a good idea how it will go. Save your credits on this one.
This entry into the series is over run with product placement. In some places it sounds like the story was written just to plug a product. It is not as good as the others, but I'm hooked.
"i recommend the series highly"
this is another great book in the survivalist
series lot of laughs with plenty of action and also serious moments and great information in how to survive in a changed world great book can't wait for the next in the series
"Duke what are you playing at???"
I have no idea what duke was playing at this time around. 3 mins in and I could cope with the slow pace of his reading it, felt like he really didn't care about what he was reading, no passion or feeling like the other books.
Had to return it. It was doing my head in.
"this series is in the top 2 of my favourites!"
this book like 12345 was outstanding. kept me on the edge of my seat as always and during the you are my sunshine my only sunshine... bits made me feel warm and content. this book was like my safety blanket I never put it down. now I sit in wait for the next to be published!!
"My kind of people :-)"
Just keeps getting better with every story.
