The Change of Seasons is the seventh book in the 299 Days series, where summer has ended and reality has set in at Pierce Point. For many people, this means scrambling to survive the long winter with even less food. Some were smart enough to spend the summer preparing for the changing season and the expanding effects of the Collapse; others were not so smart, and their desperation and fear grows stronger by the day.
Grant Matson reflects with pride on how he has provided for his family while guiding Pierce Point into a community that functions well on its own. Celebrating this accomplishment, Grant and others join to offer the community a Thanksgiving dinner, which is met with gratitude and exhilaration. This mood is short-lived, however, as circumstance quickly begin to unravel, beginning with the disappearance of a beloved community member, followed shortly by a self-defensive killing by another. The situation is just as bleak, or worse, in other parts of Washington State and the country, as innocent people are imprisoned and murdered, women and children become commodities, and what is left of the government looks even less like the once-beloved United States of America.
As the threat of a civil war becomes imminent, Grant, the Team, and the 17th Irregulars at Marion Farm bond over their duty to protect the country and are soon a fully formed combat-ready unity, excited to go into combat but uncertain of what will happen to them. Grant dreads what he knows is coming, but he understands that he has been called to sacrifice - potentially his life and probably his marriage - to stop the Loyalists from hurting more people.

Just can't get enough of this seies. Mr. Pierce delivers another exceptional narration. On to number 8.
I bought the book a while ago, but listening to Kevin Pierce narrate the story was incredible. The easy-to-understand wording conveyed powerful messages simply, and Pierce's voice wasn't hard on the ears at all. Top-notch reader. The storyline was one that built a ton of anticipation and suspense, so definitely a cliffhanger book. The reasons for war, and the motivations of the players, to me, is as interesting or more interesting than the actual fighting itself, and this book did an awesome job of showing that. Great book from Glen Tate made even better on audible!
Book is a jumbled mess. It's short likely a good thing in this case,
It's like he threw some random thoughts into a 'book'. You can skip this one and likely still be on the story
Great series. Definitely gives you something to think about. Grammar could use some help though.
The story line is great, and the narration is really good, lots of inflection. Would definitely recommend this to others.
The most realistic collapse series I've read so far. A great Story line with great patriotic views. I like these type of books cause I always learn a lot and this one really delivers.
